Very clean campground. Laundry facilities and bathrooms were immaculate. The only issue for Friday and Monday was the construction that's going on in front of the campground. There was no construction at all on Saturday and Sunday. Camp store is nice and well stocked. Staff is very friendly and very willing to assist where needed. Sites 807 - 813 are very short. We camp here every time we come to Lancaster.

This is an outstanding campground with all the amenities you would find at high priced resorts, minus a swimming pool. You can canoe, kayak, crab off the pier, fish, trail walk, visit the museum and participate in weekend activities, bird watch, visit the lighthouse on the first Saturday of the month, swim and have a cookout at the beach, bicycle, visit local areas such as St. Mary's City, or just enjoy the peace and quiet of your own site, most of which are huge with plenty of privacy. There is a wonderful playground for the kids. Bathrooms, which are in every loop, except Tulip, are clean albeit a little dated. Grass is always nicely managed. Sites for big rigs to avoid are Greens: 105, 88, and 89 (for maneuverability). Tulip: 58, 59, 60, 61, 77,78 (short for truck/tow and big rig). Not sure about the other loops since we've never stayed in those. Mosquitoes and flies were worse in Sept than any of the other months we stayed there. Repellent worked great! You will not be disappointed with this park.

As in the past, we had a wonderful weekend here and are looking forward to at least two more this camping season. The camp store was stocked, the bathrooms and laundry were immaculent, and the campground was neat and tidy. Noticed they were clearing some dead or fallen trees. As always, the staff were helpful and friendly. The shopping area about 6 miles from the campground is expanding considerably offering shoppers a wide array of choices. You can never be bored in this area!

We stayed here during the Urbanna Oyster Festival. This campground is very nice as far as cleanliness, friendliness, and summer activities. However, during the weekend of the Oysterfest there are some issues that make it less appealing to some campers. I had no problem doubling up on the sites as it is necessary for that particular weekend, however, what is the need to increase the cost per day when you get less amenities, less campsite, and more noise than during the summer months? Also, campers are not told that they need to bring additional lengths of hose and/or electrical hook-up and, in some cases, sewer hose. Our water and electric connections had to be passed under our rv to a connection almost 25 ft away and we had to use 3 sections of sewer hose to reach the sewer drain. We also had to go out and purchase a cable t-connection so that we could "share" the cable connection on the post. We were unable to connect to the WIFI the entire weekend. Not sure what the problem was there, but no one in our group was able to get connections either. If you need to use the campground shower, be sure to bring a brick and string because you have to pull on a cord to get the shower to work. There was little heat in the bathroom and the water was very cold!!! The campground offered a hayride to the festival. The cost was $2 pp each way! They made a killing on this service!!! People were lined up all along the bridge to get on the trailer. It's a shame they couldn't reduce that price a little to make it affordable for everyone. For a family of 4 it cost $16 just to go to and from the festival. Golfcarts and bicyclist were everywhere. Nothing can really be done to change that, especially with so many campers and the office being so far away. Only occasionally did I see reckless drivers. All in all we had a good weekend. I felt like we were nickel and dimed to death and we really didn't get anything for our $52 per night other than a crowded campsite, but what the heck. We'll probably be back during the summer months, but it really wasn't worth the price for going to a festival.

This campground is very nice with spacious sites. Every morning and afternoon workers came around in golf carts cleaning up branches and vacated sites. The store is nicely equipped with rv necessities, souvenirs, and food (including alcohol). It will be nice to see this place in action during the summer months. Miniature golf need a little cleaning up, but still right nice. Staff was very nice and helpful. Super Premium sites were huge with concrete pads. We stayed in the woods on a full-hookup site. It was nice but we were unable to open our awning due to the close proximity of the trees. No WIFI internet.

We attended the Halloween #2 theme weekend. It was great with plenty of planned activities. The only negative was that there was a 2 hr. wait to go through the haunted house. Something definitely needs to be done about that. The sites are large and nicely manicured. The staff was friendly and helpful. Propane filling on-site was very convenient. We really enjoyed the peace and quiet.

This campground is fine for an overnight stay. I reserved a full hook-up site, but when I arrived I was given a water/electric site. Nothing could be done to change this since all full hook-up sites had already been given out. They do have a nice dump station for those without sewer hookups. The layout of this campground has a lot to be desired, especially for larger rigs. We made out okay (40' fifth wheel and truck), but that's only because we arrived early and didn't have to navigate around a lot of campers. Others that came in after us (5:00 p.m.) didn't have the same luxury and had to weave through the wooded area. The current managers did everything they could to help us and were very friendly. There's a lot of potential with this campground. Hopefully, some improvements will be made to bring it back up to par. The restaurant on the premises is excellent! I highly recommend it...large portions for a very fair price.

Just got back from a week-long trip here. It was absolutely wonderful!!! We did the "7-night Super Saver" which is not mentioned on their website...ask for it! We stayed on a super site which gave us ample room for our truck and camper. Every camper site has concrete pads. There were many, many people (children and adults) on bikes, scooters, and golf carts, but it's not a problem if you drive slow and share the road. As with every vacation, you can make it good or bad depending on your attitude and patience. If you're going to take advantage of the tours the campground has to offer, ask for Deanna or Amber to assist you; they are awesome! We had to make several changes and they were super nice in accommodating us!!! The campground offers free shuttles to all the tour destinations and local shopping. With the high cost of fuel and heavy traffic in the area it's a great bonus. The food that the 2 snack bars offer is delicious. Nightly dinner specials are also offered. For example: New York Strip Steak, potato, and corn on the cob for $10.99. They also offer all you can eat pancake breakfast with a side order of meat for about $4.50. You can't beat this place for activities, cleanliness, and relaxation. This is our 5th time back to this campground. We have never been disappointed. The staff was extremely helpful and pleasant. I highly recommend this resort.

This is a wonderfully run campground. We stayed here with a group and just loved it. The bathrooms are exceptionally clean. The office staff is very nice and helpful. The only sites I could see that would be a problem for us are the ones that are up against a fence along the property line...they are very short! If you really want to treat yourself...go online and check out the Lancaster School of Massage. You can get a 1 hr. massage for only $25!!!! Pure heaven and only about 20 min. away from the campground!!!

We had a Group Campout here the third weekend in April and had a wonderful time! The campground was just opening for the season. The owners and workers were extremely helpful moving picnic tables, offering help, and accommodating our group. The bathrooms/showers were not yet opened, but the owners made accommodations for those in our group that needed those facilities. Everyone in our group was very pleased with this campground and the workers. It poured down rain the entire weekend, but we all still managed to have a great time. No problems with drainage in the area we were in (full hook-ups), but I did notice some other areas did have a problem, especially in the trees and end sites. Not a lot for kids to do here other than a nice pool and playground and lots of room to ride bikes. There are major improvements being made to the campground. Widening the area around the pond, resurfacing the sites, pavillion repair, etc. This is the perfect place to go if you're looking for a relaxing weekend without the hustle and bustle of large campgrounds. We will definitely stay here again.

I live within 40 minutes of Pt. Lookout State Park and had never been here camping until this year. What a mistake that has been! This is now our absolute favorite spring/fall campground. It would be our all-time favorite if it weren't for the palm-sized mosquitoes that inhabit the area during the warm months. We camp in the Tulip Loop, which is the only area that has full hook-ups. Prior to our arrival and right after we depart, the Camp Host prepares each site by carefully cleaning all debris and raking it down. The sites are very large in this area, so much so that you can barely see your neighbor through the trees. The water/electric sites in the Green Loop are terrific if you like to camp that way. They are right on the water, have a wonderful view, and have continuous breezes. The playground in that area is also great for the little ones. If you have paranormal interests, this place is certainly a hot spot. One part of the campground is located over the spot that used to house the small pox hospital during the Civil War. During the month of October there is a terrific Ghost Walk that is sponsored by the local Kawanis Club. It is a lot of fun with cider, stories, music, and so much more. Price is right too! The sites that are more apt to handle larger RVs are #63, #65, #69, #72, #79, and a few in the circle. All of the other sites in the Tulip Loop will easily hold a 30' camper. You will not be disappointed with this campground. Remember to bring your fishing poles, walking stick, insect repellent (for warm months), and bikes. The ground is flat and there's plenty to see and do.

We had a wonderful full hook-up, pull-through site near the office. While we didn't use the bathroom, I still always check out the bathrooms. These were immaculate! We drove around the campground and noticed that the sites in the back of the campground were 50 amp and larger than most of the ones near the front. The sites that ran along the front property fence were small and nearly impossible to have a camper over 30 foot on. The sites on the hill in the woods were perfect for small campers, pop-ups and tenters. The pool was clean and uncrowded. The staff was very helpful and cheerful. Neighbors were friendly. The traffic on Rt. 30 was horrible and we had to wait patiently for an opening to get in and out of the campground, but that was the only negative we could find. We will definitely stay here again.

We had a good time camping here during one of their Halloween weekends. The activities were well planned and there was always something to do. We stayed in the wooded area to the left of the campground (site 40, I think)and had nice, large sites. It was very peaceful and relaxing. The sites on the hillside had a great view and plenty of space. The only negative we could find was that one of the ladies in the office could use some customer service skills. Otherwise, all was great. We will gladly stay here again.
