10 Parks near Laurel, Delaware
Aug 2016 - $35.00
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

Simple and rustic with a lovely owner who lives yards away. Very convenient to US 13. Restrooms were clean but basic. Our drive-through site close to the lightly-traveled road was perfect for our 1 night stopover. Level gravel pad with no shade and next to the bathhouse, our preference because of excellent satellite coverage. Sites toward the back of the property were well shaded. Large lawn directly across the street has lots of space for dogs to run. - BP106

This is a no-frills campground half a block off Route 13, at the Delaware-Maryland border. The campground is heavily wooded, but the trees are nicely pruned so there are no problems with extending slides, awnings, or scraping the roof of the trailer. They have only two sites with sewer, one on each side of the bath house. The owner is very friendly and accommodating, and it was a pleasure to camp here for 3 nights while we toured the Assateague and Chincateague parks, in addition to Ocean City. There is a large lot across the street (owned by a church) where a dog can run and exercise. We will definitely stay here again when we come to the eastern shore of Maryland/Delaware. - User2446

Woodlawn Campground is a small, Mom and Pop, no-frills campground. They welcome children, but there are no special provisions or playgrounds for them. No swimming pool, jungle gyms, camp store, or basically any other amenities. The restrooms have the basics: showers, sinks, and toilets, and are always spotless. Only two of the 20 RV sites have sewer hook-ups at the site. There is a dump station that is an easy pull-through, even with a long, 34-foot, travel trailer. Tent sites are not well defined, and if you get along with your neighbors, Woodlawn can accommodate a lot of tent campers. The terrain is typical Del-Mar-Va peninsula, sandy with grass. It had rained all day the day we arrived, and a few hours after the rain stopped everything was dry again. There are so many really tall shade trees that you probably won’t be able to get a satellite signal from a roof-mounted dish. If you have one on a tripod, you’ll still have trouble finding a clear view of the southern sky from most sites. The upside of that situation is the great shade all day long. The best feature of this park is the couple who run it. They are great to deal with and will go beyond the call of duty if necessary to help you out. Great folks. Woodlawn Campground isn’t a resort by any definition, nor is it a destination campground. It IS a very nice, lower cost place to set up while you enjoy the area. - User2497

We arrived 30 June 2015 and were greeted by the Lodge secretary. What a bundle of sunshine! She gave us wonderful dining recommendations. We pulled into one of four sites. Four back ins/pull thrus, two 50 amp and two 30 amp each with water and sewer. The sites were rather level with all we needed and only $10 a night! We were really pleased! We booked for a week! We were amazed at their $1.00 Monday hot dogs, Tuesday $1.00 hamburgers, Thursday $1.00 tacos...so inexpensive, Such a friendly staff and only $10 per night stay as long as you wish Come on down Moose members! - DigMyPast

Our Good Sam chapter has camped at this park for the last several years, but I feel that this is the last year. The staff is quite aloof and non-responsive. When I asked for some information regarding the use of the club house for our group, the person I spoke to said she would call me back, but never did. I finally got an email response, but only after two requests. They are not flexible to special requests, like opening the club house a little earlier than usual for our group. The rates are quite high considering that we are camping in November. I think they make so much money during the summer that they just don't care, so we will move on to another venue in the future. - Wye River Rat

This campground is regularly flooded. We had water at the height of the table. Loop A and B shouldn't be available for camping. They know this situation but continue to operate it. Avoid this campground for your safety. WIFI connection is very bad. Had too take a cold shower because they were out of propane. Horrible customer service. - Floodedcamper

We stayed here for 3 weeks. It was really the only option this time of year. The lots were decent sized with sites shaded by trees. We were there for opening and Easter weekend and it was pretty party-party past quiet hours. During the week we were almost by ourselves and it was very nice. The "lake" was more like a disgusting green-poison-pond, really yucky. Playground was very nice although a little far from the sites. Also a fenced dog playground that looked nice if you have a dog. Laundry was clean and nice. Activities for the kids. - Fulltime2kids

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

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

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 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

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
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
Jul 2015 - $65.00
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
