Assateague State Park, Berlin, Maryland

Date of Stay: June, 2004 - $30.00
Overall Rating:

This campground, located on the ocean in the land of wild ponies, is outstanding. It's filled with wildlife, in both the ocean and on land, affords campers the benefit of a virtually private, beautiful and pristine ocean beach, offers planned (ranger-naturalist-type) activities in season, has very clean/modern rest room and shower facilities, and is within easy (15 minute) reach of Ocean City's abundant nightlife. Operated by the State, this campground is next to the national park campground (see listing for Assateague Island National Seashore in Berlin, Maryland); the latter, however, is far more rustic -- it has no flush toilets, only cold showers, and a greater degree of insect (mosquito and fly) infestation (the Feds don't spray). For these reasons, our family prefers this "more civilized" state campground. Book early, though: the campground fills up fast in season, especially on weekends. We camped at Assateague State Park in a Tent.

Greenbrier State Park, Boonsboro, Maryland

Date of Stay: June, 2004 - $20.00
Overall Rating:

This excellent state park includes a beach and lifeguard-monitored (lake) swimming area, canoe and rowboat rentals, a nature center, and a number of hiking trails. Sites are gravel, with lots of trees, and arranged in loops: Ash Loop is closest to the swimming area (and most convenient for those with small children); Cedar Loop has (20 amp) electric hookups; and Dogwood Loop is the quietest. There are planned activities (including an ice cream social and ranger-naturalist talks) on weekends, and security/noise control is provided by the quite available and generally friendly campground "hosts." This was our family's first campground, and it remains one of our nostalgic favorites. We camped at Greenbrier State Park in a Tent.

Buena Vista Campground, Buena, New Jersey

Date of Stay: July, 2003
Overall Rating:

Our experience here was most disappointing. The sites were very close together (tents were compelled to camp in an open and unshaded field), the facilities were crowded, post-curfew hours were extremely noisy, and security in the evening ws largely non-existent. While there are abundant, planned recreational opportunities, such as pony rides, movies and waterslides, virtually everything involves an added cost, which can be a significant factor to those of us with large families. Our stay here ranks among our worst camping experiences, and we would be most unlikely to return. We camped at Buena Vista Campground in a Tent.

Pine Haven Campground Resort, Ocean View, New Jersey

Date of Stay: August, 2002
Overall Rating:

We were most impressed with this campground. Although the sites are far from spacious, there are abundant and well-maintained recreational facilities, both lake and pool swimming, and an ample supply of planned activities. The staff was quite accommodating, particularly when we locked our keys in the car, and the campground is located in close proximity to a number of ocean beaches. We definitely hope to return. We camped at Pine Haven Campground Resort in a Tent Trailer.
