Note that we stayed here in November, so we did not have a problem with insects. This park is very isolated so don't expect a lot of common shopping and fast food places nearby. Those are about 20 or more miles away. However, if you do some research you'll find some good local restaurants nearby (e.g. Courtney's Seafood) and there is a well stocked hardware store nearby. The staff was friendly and we noticed staff patrolling several times a day. Sites were clean and level. We stayed in Tulip Loop so we had full hookups. All things considered, I'd hate to pay the full rate here. We used the Golden Age pass which gives a 50% discount. We came here specifically for the historical stuff related to the Civil War prison camp, but it would also be a great place for fishing, kayaking, etc in season. We found it to be a great place to kick back and relax a few days, but I suspect it would be quite different in season because it would be considerably more crowded. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.

This is a lovely, clean & friendly state park. We stayed in the Greens Point loop which is bordered on two sides by Lake Conoy (a large salt pond fed from the Potomac River). This camp area has few trees and so is exposed to sun and wind. It also has direct access to the lake, and gorgeous views. Several campsites had kayakers. The other camping areas are wooded and shady but away from the water. In the campground there is a sweet visitor center with civil war relics and fun nature children's exhibits. The camp ground is several miles from the beaches, fishing pier, lighthouse and restored Civil War fort in the rest of the park. It looks like most people drive from the campground to that part of the park, though we walked. There is a path cut-through from the campground to the main road that leads to the other areas. There are 2 pet areas with beaches where our dog swam and retrieved. We camped here in a Motorhome.

Campers beware...our site was infested with POISON IVY...we also saw most other campsites in the same condition. We have a 4 year old son who was scared the whole time that he was going to get poison ivy. We met the CAMP HOSTs who were not friendly at all...we felt like it was their personal campground and we were intruding. They did mow near out site but I don't think they know when they mow poison ivy it spreads even worse. For the price we paid the amenities were definitely lacking (No pool or playground within walking distance of campsites, no wi-fi & no cell service). Camping is all about the outdoors but the price should also reflect that. The price per night was outrageous for a state campground especially when the mosquitoes were horrible...I don't think they spray for mosquitoes and the lack of lawn upkeep in each site is horrendous. The camp hosts were not very nice...we had a golf cart and they said we could not use it...we were the only campers besides the CAMP HOSTS for a couple of days. We have stayed at other Maryland Campgrounds that are very nicely maintained and pay less for more amenities. We checked out early and were told no refunds. The campground left us feeling we will never return there. Also, the point lookout lighthouse is despicable. Trash strewn all over the place outside and all around the lighthouse. It is a shame because there is so much potential. I don't think we will return to this part of Maryland. I am going to also write a letter to the Maryland State Campground website to let them know how utterly disappointed and disgusted we were with what we experienced and how we were treated...if you are thinking of going here just drive thru don't stay. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
