This is a great option for anyone wanting a peaceful vacation near Berlin/Ocean City, MD. It is a great value for the money during the peak summer months. About 20 mins. to the beaches (depending on traffic) 10 mins to Berlin. The park itself is kept very clean. The sites are very spacious with a nice fire ring. They had several cabins overlooking the lake. They had kayaks, canoes, a pool that is on the lake, fishing, really very nice. It is very quite and peaceful at night, no loud partying, people cutting across or setting up a corn hole tournament on your camp site (yes that has happened to us). The seasonal camp sites are not junky and the people we met were all very nice. We had good power, our water was fine-no smell, which is hit or miss when you are on the eastern shore of MD, good pressure. My only gripe is that the bathroom/shower was not very nice. We camped in a 5th wheel, and we would camp here again.

I love this park. You can not beat the location or the price. Yes it is like a big sandy parking lot, no trees at all. So if you want to sit at your campsite and not venture out, this might not be the place for you. If you want to sit on the beach, then you can walk there. Head to Bethany or Rehoboth, both a short drive, walk along the inlet-pretty wild watching the water rage. Go across to the north side of the inlet, Hammerheads II has live music/happy hour, or catch the fishing boat that runs twice a day. The park offers kayak trips also. I look forward to coming here every year. My only complaint would be that they should put a little effort into the existing campsites, fill in the low spots, fix the roads, etc.

It was a nice campground in a natural setting. Nothing fancy, clean and well kept. A good number of snowbirds/seasonal campers. Electric was reliable. We would stay here again.

This is a beautiful campground. Our site had full hookups and was very large. Loved riding our bikes on the trails. About 15-20 minutes to Savannah. It had rained and we did notice several sites that were a wet and muddy mess. We didn't like the drive around and find a site approach. We didn't have a problem but I could see were it might be frustrating. 50 amp power was good.

This park totally fits the vibe that is Matlacha. Very eclectic. Walk to shops, bars and restaurants. There is a clubhouse with a kitchen, TV, etc. that appears to be in the finish stages. A community fire pit , tiki bar, lounge chairs, boat dock... We met several nice couples and had a great time. The spots are tight but everyone, including some really big rigs fit in. The Yacht Club in Coral Gables, about 20 minutes away provides a beach and a pool. We would return.

We loved our stay here, love the location, close to Key West. Site 25 was large and has a nice waterfront area with beautiful sunsets. The water connection is located front left side (hose crossed site). The electric is located front right, we needed an extension cord. 50 amp power was good. The bath house was extremely clean and nice. We put Plexiglas panels in our screen door to keep the no-seeums out. Bug spray is a must. It's hard to get reservations but don't give up, it was worth the being denied every morning at 7:59:59 for a month plus to spend a week in paradise!

This park is very close to the entrance of the Everglades. My reservation which I confirmed twice was lost on arrival. They did find it and we headed to site 184. The place seemed nice, well cared for park models, nice pool facility. Then we made a right and yikes! We were parked between two nasty trailers, falling apart, bags of garbage sat on their porch. I was nervous and scared. Loud Hispanic music blared late into the night on two nights, fireworks of some sort late one night frightened the heck out of us. Then we went to the pool, clean, nice laundry, lovely pool, nice people, we felt safe. Lots of planned activities, lots of snowbirds enjoying life. The park is not worth $60. a night and we would not return. If you do stay try to stay on the left side of the park.

The worse thing about the park was the entry road. It was brutal, potholes as big as our truck that never stopped. The rain made it nerve-racking since you couldn't tell how deep they were. The bath house while clean was old, the shower wasn't great, mold growing on painted block and the drain was a real ankle twister. However the natural beauty, foliage, wild turkeys, pigs, deer made up for it. The sites were large. This was a great base to explore St. Augustine and surrounding area. The 30 amp power was all right. We would return, felt it was an excellent value.

This was a nice park with good access to the Lancaster area. It is right on the turnpike, however the road noise was not that bad at all. They have great security. Reservations and check-in were easy. Our site had excellent power, cable was fuzzy, not very level. The site backed to trees and we had enough space to enjoy our fire. We would stay here again.

This is a great value, what you pay vs what you get. The owners were super nice, went out of their way to make us feel welcome. I believe all but 8 sites are for seasonal campers. The sites are back to back, grass sites between the bath house and pool. The 30 amp power was good, but did not need to run the a/c. The bath house wasn't great, but was clean. This was an amazingly friendly group of people, made us feel very welcome. I would stay here again, great waterfront location, great kayaking nearby!

This campground has the best location to get into town. Very close to the visitors center. It was packed for the 150th Anniversary, yet we were able to get back and forth with minimal traffic issues. If you love to hike you could very easily walk (or ride your bike) to many of the monuments. The campground has a small pool and a small catch and release pond. They also have the horse stables and the people we spoke with stated the horseback tours were very good. The campground was clean. When we go back to Gettysburg we will stay here again.

I loved this campground. I am giving it a 9, because they totally messed up and caused us a lot of extra work. When we arrived we were placed in the wrong site. After setting up we were told we would have to move. I was pretty upset, setting up a 5th is a lot of work. We moved, as it turned out our new spot was great and we enjoyed the remainder of the trip with beautiful weather, a great beach and a beautiful campground. The location was great and there was plenty of fun things to do along the Emerald Coast. I would stay here again, but I would make sure next time that if they put me in the wrong spot that they financially reimburse me for the inconvenience!

The park has the potential to be a 5 star. The setting is amazing, large trees canopy the campground with moss hanging down from them. Easy access to paved biking paths, we biked almost the entire island, a lovely bird garden. The bathhouses were okay, and they had a nice enough laundry room. Bring lots of bug spray, the mosquitos are bad and treat your dog for ticks and fleas before arriving. The biggest issue was the "junk yard" appearance from the seasonal/permanent residents. Junk under the campers, outdoor freezers, assorted tarps covering more junk. Just enough of them scattered around to take away from the natural beauty of the park.

The owners of Bass Lake are wonderful and take great pride in their campground. The campground is just off of I95 in Dillon and while close to highway, it did not appear to be noisy. It is wooded with a wonderful lake. They stored our RV for us for $20 per week, while we spent time at our condo in Myrtle Beach. It was filled with all the toys and it was kept safe. I prefer paying a few bucks for the night and having a safe place/peace of mind vs staying in a parking lot for free. I will use this campground again as it makes a great, safe place to stay the night.

I was very happy with this park. Good Sam discount. It had a great location, it was clean, well kept, good power. A small pool area, seemed nice. A shuttle bus from the campground will take you downtown, should you want to check out the bar scene one night. We did not have any issues with noise.
