There are (5) Camping Loops but this time of year, only C & D Loops open, we were on C-7 which backs up to the Lake Trail so you have no Campsites behind you but only 2-3 Campers here at this time of year so very quiet. The Website said the Water would be off due to the Weather but C-Loop looks to have been recently upgraded with new Water Spigots and Power boxes with 20-30-50 Amp and a Night Lite. Since it was below Freezing I taped some Heating Tape and Insulation and Water worked fine for our stay of 14-Days. Campsites are flat, dirt/sand, close together, too close for us but great in the Winter. No Laundry Facilities, Camp Store closed, however Host can supply Firewood. Nature Center open, worth a visit, several trails. - leadshot

We stayed for two nights at Killens Pond in our 30' TT. The sites are very close together. For many that may be perfectly acceptable. We did not enjoy it. Loop C was directly behind us and it was difficult to tell where a Loop B site ended and Loop C site started. Our fire pit was on the other side of a tree. The people behind us in C were with some people elsewhere in B. People were continually walking directly through our campsite to get to their friends. The laughed about our dogs barking every time they cut through. Their site was close enough that we could easily listen to their normal level conversation. For the most part people did respect quiet hours. This would be a good setup if there are a few groups staying together.
We enjoyed the Trick or Treating on Saturday night.
The 2.6 mile Pond Trail was very nice. it's an easy hike with several opportunities to view the pond. - BeagleDad

Very tidy and comfortable wooded park. Great shad over campers for hot days... the camping loops were very social and the atmosphere was very friendly. Children will love weekends here! Everything about the park had great vibes... the water park, the trails and the pond water sports were all really pleasant. One can walk or bike to the water park from the campground. While entrance fees to the water park are not included with camping it's only five bucks! It's a great campground to stay over a weekend or to stop over on the way to someplace else north or south. We stopped after a week at DE Seashore State Park on our travels back to the Philly region as a nice treat before the vacation ended. Note: Larger campers can be accommodated but it's a goof idea to ask which loop is best. Looks as if D loop and E loops we're best suited for large campers over 22' up to fifth wheels and buses. - Jim and Ben

Very tight turns, very friendly check-in, he actually led us to our site with his vehicle. I would stay here again. It was a little damp and muddy, granted it was a crummy day but with more grass, it would have been better. - Jack&Wanda
May 2014 - $42.00
This park is easy to get to but the roads are a bit tight with lots of turns and trees but we did it in our 40' motorhome. The back-in grass sites are well shaded and a little small but have enough room for slides and awnings. There is no Wi-Fi and no cable and we couldn't pickup any OTA channels. Our Verizon signal was weak and would drop calls at times. Even with these drawbacks we liked this campground and would return. - dandg

It had been raining all day when we pulled in. Our water/electric site was sand and gravel, with no standing water, and very level. We were surrounded by trees, and at this time of year didn't have any close neighbors, although the sites in our area (site 7) were close together. The bathrooms were old and worn, but clean. However, the only ventilation was an open window. This was a good place to stop for the night, but not a place we would stay longer. - leorah

This is a small but well kept campground with 10 campsites. We had full hookup with 50 amp service. There is no wifi available. The bathhouse was brand new with two stalls and one shower. The laundry room had one washer one dryer. We drove to the other side of Base to the rec office to have our frequent camper book stamped. The clerk couldn't have been nicer. Wish they were closer to the campground. You fill out the registration form and put your payment in a drop box. The campground is next to the AMC Museum. It is a must see!! But you cannot get in from on base. You must drive off base to enter the museum. - Melodycthomas

This is a small military campground located on Dover AFB. There ar 10 back in sites, 3 with 30 amp and 7 with 50 amp electric. At least half of the sites were filled with long term campers (homesteaders). One cannot make a reservation and we were lucky to get the last site available. One can self pay or go to the Outdoor Recreation and pay (we went to Outdoor Recreation) which is easy to find on base. A long term camper had recently departed our site and our water/power pedestal was completely covered in weeds. the mowing crew came by the next day and trimmed it all away taking care not to blow anything on our equipment. The bathhouse is new and there is no signage on either bathroom as to women or men's. Fortunately, the main door for each bathroom locked so when using the facilities, we just locked the door. Looks like the bathhouse has not even been added to the cleaning contract and though not filthy, the toilets needed a good scrubbing. There was no soap, toilet paper, or paper towel available in the bathhouse so we purchased some to use during our 3 night stay. No trash can either. The campground is located at the end of the runway but aircraft noise was not an issue for us. We were camping with a motorcycle and a motorcycle pop up tent trailer so the bathhouse and picnic table were important to us. Not sure where the dry camping is located as nothing is marked for those sites. A dump station is available and a $3 fee if not camping. We would stop here again. - roadking

We chose this location since we wanted to be able to get to Dover and Rehoboth Beach, DE, as well as St. Michael's, MD. This location allowed us to do that even though it's pretty much in the middle of nowhere. Site pad was dirt, driveways are asphalt on the entrance and then gravel, generally in good shape. Bathrooms are in good repair and generally clean. WiFi hotspot only available around the office and very restricted. Essentially, it was of no use to us. They have a pool but we didn't us it. We were there during the week for 4 nights and it was very quiet, hardly anyone else around. We had site with 50 amp electric and water, dump stations and a pump out service are available. We paid a blended rate of $38.85 with Passport America and Good Sam. - Coopsecondact
Nov 2015 - $23.00
Very dated bathrooms, laundry, recreation areas, and office. Good value at PA rate, overpriced otherwise. Female owner was cold and unwelcoming while the husband was extremely friendly and likeable. WiFi only available at hotspot by office (unsure of quality). Controlled entry gates unnecessary and cumbersome. Negative signs everywhere was a little off-putting. - Full-Time Roamers

Variety of sites catering to tents up to the larger Class A campers. Shady private sites available, walking trails and fishing deck great for kids. Lots of activities, very family oriented. Camp store is well stocked. - CamperSue

May 2016 - $60.00
It is a steaming hot Memorial Day Weekend, and we have lost power for most of Saturday. Once the campground loses power they shut down the camp store as well. The pool was closed due to an electrical charge running through it, giving a mild electrical shock to anyone in the water and a more significant one to anyone who touched the hand rail. There is no shade, and no wifi and no real amenities here to make a stay worth while. Your campsite is just big enough for your awning not a picnic table. The sewer drain is on a raised platform making it difficult to dump. They are refusing to adjust the rates for the campsites even though they are not providing electrical service. - krmihalk

Stayed there to visit some friends in the area. Couldn't get a WiFi signal, but cell signal was good. Lots of kids on the weekend, but that was expected. Good camp store. Easy in easy out, but very difficult to cross to highway to go north. Staff was a friendly mix of teenagers and older adults. Guest fee was the highest I've seen so far $15 per person, although senior guests were free. - Sleeps Two

We had problems with unfriendly staff, maintenance issues, and poor wifi. Long way to go to get to the bath/shower house. On the positive side, there were some friendly staff, the pool was nice, and it's not far to drive to the beach or into town. All in all, this place has some work to do to get better. - 96 Rockwood

We stayed for two nights in November. The park is nice, although the sites were a little closer than I have camped in at other MD State parks. There is an amphitheater on the water, a nature center, and spots along the riverbank provide seats and cover from the sun while fishing--nice. The park staff were extremely friendly and helpful. You can really get your daily steps in by walking throughout the grounds, exploring.
Unfortunately, the only dump station was not working and campers had to go to Tuckahoe to dump tanks. But, I guess that could happen anywhere and Tuckahoe was on my way home, so it was not much of an inconvenience.
I would stay at Martinak Park again. - DestinyBoundRV
Nov 2015 - $17.00
Martinak has been our first stop after storage & last stop before storage for a number of years which means at least 4 visits a year. Always in the power loop. Never been fussy about a particular site. All are good. Most long enough for our 36' RV. All level or close to it. All back ins. Most easy to get into. A big box market & Wally are minutes away but you would not know it from inside the park. Very quiet. A real jewel if you want to be away from it all but not far from anything that might be needed. The only thing missing is water at the site but there are 3 water sources on the loop. Rate quoted is for the MD seniors discount. - Veebyes

We pulled in after dark. Lot was short but level. Walking path around and through the campgrounds. Wooded. - MsLucy

Site was heavily wooded and very private; we were surrounded by woods on three sides, and could only see our neighbors across the narrow loop road. Site included a picnic table, fire ring, grill grate and lantern post. Pad was nice and level; didn't need to use any blocks. Drive way was just long enough to accommodate our truck. Site was a little farther from the bath house than we usually prefer, but didn't really matter as we were camping sans kids this time. I loved the privacy of this site, so I didn't mind the little bit of extra walking. Almost all the sites looked relatively private, with a fair amount of trees in between, but our was on of the only sites that was truly surrounded by forest. Since we were here in November, the leaves were especially beautiful.
Facilities/Overall Park: Bath house was large, heated and extremely clean; looks recently renovated. There was also a nice large dishwashing station on the Men's side, which I love. The park itself is very quiet, pretty, and easy to get around. Lots of multi-use trails, which i believe are mostly flat, so maybe not the best for die-hard hiking enthusiasts. We took the Lake Trail down to the day-use area, and it was a very pleasant, scenic hike that took less than 20 minutes. The lake/day-use area is beautiful, with a pavilion, picnic tables, boat launch area, volleyball and large recycled-tire playground for kids. There were quite a few people out and about, more than I would have expected during November. The lake is popular for fishing, kayaking and canoeing (no swimming allowed). During the on-season, canoes and kayaks are available for rent to explore the lake and water trails in the adjacent Tuckahoe Creek. Would love to come back in the summer to check them out. There is also a disc golf course, challenge course, and archery range on-site. - Jenventola

Nicely wooded campground, with large well-spaced sites for privacy. We stayed in the electric loop in early October with no one on either side. Without reservations, self-checkin was a little confusing (and I don't know how much of the year they do it this way). They post a list at the entrance with names, site numbers, and dates reserved, and we had to take note of available sites (since it wasn't very full, I actually wrote down the site numbers of the taken/reserved), then drive through and pick the one we liked. Payment is made (cash or check) with an envelope slipped into a locked payment box. Honor wood available for $4 from a shed. (We didn't have one dollar bills, so we slipped in a five.) Our drive took us across the Annapolis Bay bridge, which is an experience in itself. The majority of the drive after that is through farmland, so it was interesting to suddenly reach a huge patch of dense forest. Overall, this was a very decent place for us in our RV. We didn't see/use the bath houses, so my high rating does not take that into account. - Libre RV

We come to Tuckahoe often because its close to home and a nicely maintained small campground with lots of room between sites, paved roads, and enough activities to be busy but restful. This visit happened to be a rainy weekend but between showers we managed to hike the two loops. Sites are back in and a mix of level and sloped. Use the pictures on the reservation site to look for large trees that will limit overhang off the site. Some require a bit more engineering than others to level up but most with RVs seemed to be able to accommodate the terrain. Restrooms are cleaned daily and in good condition. Power was clean. Water points are on the loop road and accessible. Dump station easily accommodated our 35 footer with toad. Rangers patrol often and were quick to enforce the basic rules like keeping tents on sites and number of vehicles parking at each site. Great kayaking creek with tons of turtles basking in the sun (if its out). Great place for young kayakers. - HR52

An overnight stay on our way to the ferry from Lewes, DE to Cape May, NJ. We arrived to find ourselves in Christmas in July! Lots of decorations and celebration for the many families camping here. The park was very well organized and clean. Several seasonal campsites were evident, mixed with transients like us. But lots to do for the whole family. Great park for an extended getaway. Staff was very helpful and friendly. - Dunwoodyradio

85% permanent and seasonal campers. Open drive-through sites. Unsecured WiFi. Nice pool. 12 miles from Rehoboth Beach. I would camp here again. - Bburgbrewer
Aug 2016 - $49.00
Campground is mostly seasonal but park was mostly unoccupied during our five night stay. The "rustic camping" sites that are available for transient visitors are conveniently located near the front of the park and bath house facility. We arrived after 5:00 pm and office was already closed. Paperwork was left outside at the office. Sites not well marked. Very inconvenient one-way road around "B" loop.
Site 36 was tight for backing a trailer into due to trees close to the road and firewood that was stacked close to the road at an adjacent site. We disconnected in the road and pushed our pop up into the site.
Bath house was cleaned daily during the morning when need was highest. - 5hilltoppers
