16 Parks near Georgetown, Delaware
Aug 2016 - $69.00
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

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

It is a large park tucked away in tall pine trees. Great location to Rehoboth Beach and Lewes. Those are the only positives.
There are mostly permanent aging RVs here. It would be kind to call it eccletic (although I did love the tiki bars some trailers had set up outside - very retro). The RV spaces were tightly packed in by the bath-house at the rear of the park. Do not come here in a tent!! The sites are literally located in the middle of two roads and two unlucky sites were within 3' of the dump station (T9 and T10 I believe).
There appear to be many amenities - a very tiny mini-golf area, public pool... I'm sure there was more, but we didn't walk the area too extensively.
We were there in a motor home and felt safe - but not enough to leave any equipment out after dark. - DelawareChicks

There is no other way to say it, this is an aging trailer park with 17 RV sites jammed together around a bath house. We arrived after the office was closed and were met by "security" to be let into the gate and led to our site. On the way, we passed the burned out shell of a trailer. We walked around the campground with our dog, and saw quite a few 1970's vintage trailers. Some of the sites were fixed up nicely, others not so much. We had thought to stay longer and explore Lewes DE, and decided that there was nothing for us in this campground and hit the road the next day instead. We had come over on the afternoon Cape May Ferry. All of the other campgrounds in the area were already closed for the winter. This place is adequate if you have no other option. If you have a choice, choose someplace else. - ShoreXplorers

A trailer park with less than 20 transient sites crammed together next to a mosquito-producing pond in a gravel parking lot. Rude greeter at gate, no tourist info available, kids running wild, $500 reward for turning in thieves posters all over, completely unfriendly. Supposed WiFi hot spots were intermittent at best, even right next to them. And all this for $70 a night, 3 night minimum (we only needed 2). Would never stay here again. - gvljohnsons

This campground needs maintenance. Roads are bad and sites are sometimes covered with leaves. Pool is nice though. It is in a very nice forest and people were very friendly. If you like a neat and clean place, you won't like it. But if you prefer a quiet spot in the woods, you might like it. - Floodedcamper

We went here for the Memorial Day weekend. Large shaded sites. Unfortunately, they were covered with dried leaves and sand fleas. The fleas covered everything and everyone by 9 am each morning. All amenities - pool, activities, wildlife viewing, petting areas, etc were a 20 minute bike ride from our site. Gate that led to amenities was supposed to be unlocked, but was only unlocked once for 6 hours. Paid for full hookups, but sewer was only a pipe (no cap on many of the sites) laying sideways on the ground. When we or the neighboring sites dumped, odors were horrific. Would not recommend this park. - Jeff & Terry

Well, I booked this trip BEFORE I read the reviews - almost a big mistake. First, the roads are as bad advertised. I have a 26' TT, and the twisting, very bumpy roads consistently put me within inches of trees on both sides. Drive VERY slow and you can make it, but I have no idea how a big rig can get through there. My biggest complaints about the park all took place within the first 2 hours of check in. The lady at the front desk gave me a map and in big black marker showed me exactly where to go to get to my site. If you go, DO NOT FOLLOW HER INSTRUCTIONS! These are pull through sites (if that's what you want to call them), so I followed her instructions. Very nearly got stuck / damaged my TT following the road the WRONG way (you needed to loop around and come from the other direction). So I get to my site, and it is a mess! It was a former seasonal site, and was full of trash, concrete cinder blocks, broken up sewer hose, etc. The sewer hookup (only found it by tracing the old sewer hose, under a pile of leaves) was about 50' from the water and electric, they were on opposite corners of the lot. After 20 minutes of trying to figure it out, I called back to the office and moved a couple spots up to where I could make it work. There were all seasonals around me, and an abandoned trailer in the next site (someone just dragged it there on flat tires, broken awning, etc). The site was a good sized lot, and flat. So that's the bad part, but this place kind of grew on me. The seasonal neighbors were all friendly and helpful, the pool was decent, and the location was excellent. They have a large animal area with goats, deer, and donkeys. There is another area with three very big peacocks and a lookout platform that looks out over the marsh area. The tower was a death trap, though - don't let small kids go unattended! This park is very large, and broken up in 2 large sections. We stayed in the section closest to the main gate and camp store. The sites in this area (the park looked ~90% full) were ALL seasonals, so that may account for the difficulties I had getting set up. The other section might be a little more over-night friendly. The bathhouse was OK, but was a horror-show one morning, so I never went back. (I don't blame the park for the disgusting behavior of some people) I can understand the low ratings, based on the frustration I felt the first day. But this isn't that bad of a place, and is probably a great place to have a seasonal (it's pretty cheap). - Super Tank

Nice shaded campground. It's obviously an older park. Lots of trees, so many trees that on many sites you cannot fit an RV, only a pop up or tent that can be maneuvered around the trees. In fact due to location of some trees and bushes on our reserved site, our 41' Fifth Wheel did not fit even though the site was listed as 45' in length. We got lucky and found an open site and office staff allowed us to move. We had to park on an angle to fit and used long cord to reach our electric box.
Not a lot of space between campsites. We had to put our picnic table and dining canopy behind our RV as there was no room between campsites. We stayed in the B Loop. The bathhouse was very clean, although it could use some updating. Had to stoop to fit under the shower head and the water only stays on for approximately 11 seconds at a time. Had to keep pushing the button while stooping down. A little tricky!
Gray water dump station at each bathhouse. Two dump stations available when exiting the park.
The park is centrally located to the beaches so we were able to make day trips to the different beaches. Also located near lots of antique stores and flea markets. At the park, take the pontoon boat tour for some history of the park. The campground offers free bicycles for you to use. Well maintained trails for hiking, biking and horseback riding. Campground staff were very nice and very accommodating. We walked around making note of campsites we would fit in for future reference, as were several other people. We will definitely go back. - Campn42

State Park with lots of activities. Fishing, free bike rentals, trails, great kayaking, nature center, row boat and pedal boat rentals. Check with the nature center for pontoon boat tours. $6.00 very reasonable for one hour informative tour.
Large well spaced sites , on dirt and pine needles. Older bathhouse but clean. Quiet and uncrowded during our weekday stay. - grj

We have camped here many times. Always enjoyed our time here. This time we were a little creeped out by the guy riding around on a golf cart. He was tattooed on arms, neck and face. I guess he was a host. He rode around like he was casing the place. Bath houses were clean, pond was beautifull as usual. The pontoon boat ride done by the park naturalist is a must do for visitors. - doghouse traveler

This is a nice membership park and sometimes they have room for the general public at a very expensive price of $70. Back in sites are at a tight right angle, some near the water, some with cement pads. All have very good hookups, including cable for newer TV's. Be very aware of the "not-before-2PM" check in time as they are strict and you will wait outside the attended park gate until 2. You need to request a rest rooms key and pay a $20 refundable deposit. The restrooms/showers were clean. There is an additional fee to use the pool. There is lovely landscaping and a trash can at each site. We did like it, but we would look for something more affordable if in the area again. - R&S

This is a private C2C resort and located on a water access Marina. The resort is located at the end of a private road. They have many social activities. - A hitch and hop

The lot was level and wooded, with a view of the bay. The pool was not opening until Saturday even though the temperature was in the 90s on Thursday and Friday. A key to the bathhouse is available for a returnable deposit. The park was clean and nicely landscaped. I would gladly return to this park. - lynette47

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

All of the seasonal sites are wonderfull under a canopy of mature Oaks. The transient sites were an after thought along the access road in full sunlight. Parking was an issue all week: most sites had multiple vehicles. The single shower house was a fair walk into the nice part of the park. 2 feet between neighbor's awning and our slide. Under our awning was the 15+ electric meters on a shaky pole, along with a 4 foot by 2 foot electricity box. 30 feet directly across from our site was the camp garbage cans, along with the smell and flies. - bucko
Aug 2015 - $79.00
Definitely a sellers market. Tough price to pay to be this close to the beach.too crowded, spaces too small. Very noisy. Cash only in the office, no checks or credit cards.
There is a state park near Bethany that is much nicer, but has no shade and is too hot in the summer. This place is strictly a last resort type of place. - Buddy Bus
Jun 2013 - $59.00
Nice park with decent sized sites. As mentioned in other reviews, this is a cash only park which would have been nice to know before we got there. There is a no-fee ATM at the convenience store right down the street. The location was super convenient to several beaches, shopping, and restaurants. My only complaint is that the cable did not work unless we fed the cord from the box in through a window, which meant leaving the window open and it did rain while we were gone so we had a mess to clean up, but no water damage. The Wi-Fi never worked and they tried to tell me that it was my phone and Kindle that were the problem. I was able to get a connection on both when I left the campground and went to a public Wi-Fi spot. - Bonnie66

We camped here about five years ago and liked it but since then the cost of staying at a Delaware State Park without hookups ($38) is unreal especially for an out of state camper. Considering that the parking RV sites are all on the loop roads with one's picnic table, fire pit and tenting sites in the woods next to it. Most sites have water but no other hookups. We stayed one night and only one bathroom was open but the campground closed down the next day so that they could bring in modular bathhouses to update the other three. Our bathhouse was clean, had showers but old and needed updating. What this campground has going for it is location, bike trails, beaches, great friendly check in hosts and it is near the Cape May Ferry. Some great bike trails! The loop roads need to be repaved most of them are buckling and it is hard to get an RV level. We would not stay here again except for taking the Cape May Ferry! - gsnakehill

This park is very near the Lewes-Cape May ferry. Lovely, peaceful campground. No hookups except water. No generators--hooray. Dump station. Parking is parallel on the blacktop street next to sandy shaded sites. Spacious sites have picnic tables and fire pits. The park was an Army base during WW2 and there are many historical sites to tour including barracks, bunkers, and towers overlooking the Atlantic Ocean. Well-marked trails and bike paths.Robust single stream recycling. Off season registration is unbelievably stupid, dysfunctional and illogical. We watched carefully for registration signs as we entered the park, did see an office building on the right, but no registration signs. Pulled straight ahead to a manned building on the entrance road. The person there instructed us to go past the building, then make 3 left turns which took us to the front of the office building, no place to park a rig, and no signs. A staff person walking by motioned to make two right turns--then there was a place to park and walk to the entrance of the office building where we were told that we must first visit the campground and choose a site, then return to office to register. Registration process took 45 minutes. - meanderingman

We stayed in Loop "C" which is close to the main restroom/shower facility. All the loops looked pretty much identical. The campground is very convenient to the State Fair and Harrington Slots and Raceway. All the sites were very wooded and had nice space in between sites so you aren't up on your neighbor. W/E sites and a dump station near the entrance of the CG. There was a mix of Class A to tents in our loop. We used the water park one day and the kids had fun there. The nature center is new and there are well marked trails and bike paths around the lake. The CG and park are very well maintained. For $25, it is the best campground for the money! we will be back! - whodey

This is a brand new resort! All of the amenities are top notch and the staff are super friendly.
The sites are wide plus most of the sites have an extra spot for another vehicle. - ETCTA

Minimum 3 night stay policy. 35 minutes to Rehoboth Beach with no traffic, much longer with traffic. Many times no one picks up phone, have to leave voicemail for callback. Online chat, very long for someone to reply. Wifi is terrible, not workable. Our site was pretty level. Speedy checkin did not work, still had to wait in line inside to checkin. Pool size was actually decent. Dog beach was great, just watch out for biting horse flies. 2 hour private pontoon boat rental $203 was excellent. $99 1 hour jet ski rental available too, all onsite. $65 for golf cart per day. No water shuttle to Rehoboth Beach. Very large camp store. Nice concierge desk. Every site had a second driveway for car or truck. - univmd

We prepaid for express check in and that didn't work. We had reserved a golf cart which was supposed to be on our site and was not there. We went to get the cart and had to wait 20 minutes for a key. The next day a second cart showed up which we did not need. The layout of the park is terrible. The parking lot at the office is so down hill you cannot unhook your tow vehicle so you have to unhook on the road before backing in. For being a new campground the sites are not very level. The turn at the gate coming in is so sharp you must go around the block to access your site. - queeniegirl

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
Oct 2013 - $35.00
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
