Just when we thought the roads into a campground couldn't get any worse, we found this place. And the low-hanging branches over my site were bad enough that I did my own pruning prior to leaving. It was very quiet while we were here, since we were located at the end of the "seasonal area" where nobody seemed to reside at the time. Bathrooms and showers were old but adequate. The park WiFi was good, Verizon signal was weak. Our site was an end spot very close to to the next one, but spacing was sufficient in most areas. The 30A power and water pressure were good. Our site included a picnic table and fire ring. The staff was very friendly. There was access to the fantastic C & O Canal Rail Trail from the park, which was nice. Services in the small town of Hancock were about a 15-minute drive away. This campground is probably fine for most folks traveling in smaller units for a weekend, but the roads and sites are not intended for larger rigs. We camped here in a Motorhome.

This is my second time at this campground. The major drawback here, is all the seasonal campers and their ATVs and 4 wheelers driving around all day. There are a few ATV type trails at the end of the campground that they ride at, but you can only have an ATV or 4 wheel vehicle if you are a seasonal camper, so this doesn't serve well for anyone wishing to check that out. The sites fairly level, we had w/e/s and cable. They offer wifi service, but you have to pay, and the cell signal here is very weak, so don't bother paying for the wifi. The campground is run by a family, and they offer weekend activities that are fun. Both of my trips here, they had a live band play on Saturday night, which was fun. If you want to ride your bike or walk, the Western Maryland Rail Trail ( a paved trail ) is 3/4 of a mile from the campground. You could also drive into the town of Hancock ( maybe 5 minutes ), and access the trail there. That trail is very nice, paved and flat, and mostly shady. They don't seem to be strict here for noise, and do not come around and monitor you, which is nice, so they let you enjoy your camping. There isn't a lot in the area besides the bike trail and a possible day trip to Berkley Springs. The Potamac River is nearby, but I am not sure how to access it near this campground. They could use more help in the office, which they also have a snack shop run by the same folks running the desk, so its very busy and not organized. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.

This park has some great attributes and a few problems. The approaching road is steep and needs resurfacing, but it is not impassable. The park is 7 miles out of town, so no road noise. The sites are a little tight, and many are seasonal and/or permanent, but they are mostly very well-cared for, with landscaping, patios, etc. The people are mostly friendly but we did feel a little like outsiders. However, start a conversation and everyone is friendly. The breakfast buffet on weekends ($6.95 all you can eat) is really good. The activities are varied and would appeal to all ages. It is a little noisy, with many ATVs and golf carts cruising around regularly. The pool is huge and clean, but opens whenever the kids guarding feel like opening it. It is also open to the locals (for a fee) but even on Labor Day weekend was not overly-crowded. The park is run by a large family, and while they are friendly and helpful they are somewhat disorganized. Reservations are not computerized and we witnessed a big mix-up at the front desk, plus then neighbors of ours were sent to 4 different sites trying to find one that was available and would fit their 36-foot 5th wheel. Showers were clean and free, but operated by a pull rope and you cannot adjust the temperature. Water was blazing hot, which is not what I wanted on a 90-degree day, and rinsing long hair with one hand is difficult. All in all, however, this is a decent place to stay and the only game in town, so we would stay again. We were here to bike on the Western Maryland Rail Trail, which we would highly recommend. C&O Cycling in town has knowledgeable and friendly employees, and the Triangle Restaurant is a great place for a tasty and reasonably-priced meal. Check them out! We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
