It's a nice park, right on a beautiful lake. Personnel were friendly and helpful. The big problem is their power. When we were there it was very hot and humid, and of course desperately needed the AC. We have a large 40' DP, but typically ran just one AC at a time. We have a UPS between us and the park's power pole, whose job it is to shut off power to the coach if the power is too high or too low. And after 3 days it started shutting us down every few minutes, with a "Low Voltage" error. We have another power meter which confirmed the low voltage condition. The maintenance man suggested just removing the UPS, as nobody else had one and they were all fine, but that just did not sit right with me. We just ran our generator until the next day when we were cheerfully given a refund for our unused days, and moved on. As we were packing up, our neighbor said that just recently a virtually identical coach as ours, with an external UPS like ours, had the same problems we did, and ended up leaving. She said, "Anybody here who has one of those UPS's has problems". So, the warning is, if you come here, be aware that the park *may* have electrical issues, and your electrical system *may* be somewhat at risk. I would certainly want to have a UPS to protect the RV. We camped at Bar Harbor RV Park & Marina in a Motorhome.
We made a reservation over the phone. They picked out a site based on our size, 40ft. It was perfect for backing out. Great view of the harbor as well. We were a day late but that was no issue for them. Sites were very close, but there was room for a picnic table, fire ring, and concrete slab for the picnic table. They had a special area for parking your trailer and car which was perfect for us. Definite plus. We camped at Bar Harbor RV Park & Marina in a Motorhome.

I agree with some of the things the previous poster mentioned. It does have some waterfront spots and the sites are paved but it also has a rather lazy maintenance staff. The fire ring on our site was full of trash when we arrived. I had to ask at the office 3 times before it was cleaned out! Also the laundry room/building was nasty! The side of the building was covered with dead bugs, there were cobwebs all over the laundry room and the floor hadn't been swept in days. Since there was a broom available I swept it. I complained to the office but they didn't act like it was any big deal. This park has short term folks and long term folks along with apartment dwellers. When checking in you made aware of their dog policies. They prefer not to see and especially hear them. But they do not enforce their own rules. During the week end dogs barked day and night. The worst offenders are the long term lessees. One next to us had two dogs that barked constantly. We will never stay here again. Our rate reflected discounts for a weekly rate and for paying in cash. We camped at Bar Harbor RV Park & Marina in a Fifth Wheel.

Many of the sites are right on the water and provide beautiful water views. (So close to the water in fact that you can see why flooding during storms is inevitable.) They have paved driveways with concrete pads. We have four slides, so we are wide, we used our pad as a sidewalk to the rear of the site, placed our table on the grass near the fire pit and took advantage of the water view. A walk way along the bulkhead gave access to various piers for you to fish or crab off of. The 50 amp service was excellent. The bath rooms were clean but outdated. The pool was nice with views of the river through glass panels. They rent kayaks, paddle boards and canoes. Front desk staff/service was excellent. We really liked this CG and plan to come back. We camped at Bar Harbor RV Park & Marina in a Fifth Wheel.
This park was excellent other than the sites were very tight. The park is on the river with "waterfront" sites available. The pool was nice and the bath houses were top notch. The cable was good and power was good. Be carefull on the road in as it is very narrow. We camped at Bar Harbor RV Park & Marina in a Fifth Wheel.
ONLY GAME IN TOWN. Glad my cousin knew where it was - right on the water - but be prepared to take your time on that "last-mile" worth of "neighborhood roads." Not a driving challenge, but it's pretty tight, and one needs to be careful. Park is tight - sites are close - but MD real estate is expensive - especially waterfront. Power was good, as was water quality and cable selection. Sites and roads are paved. Pool is nice (but we didn't use). Many of the water-front sites are "pull-in," vs. back-in. Didn't notice any pull throughs. Level. All-in-all a nice park, albeit a little spend y. Ft McHenry is about a 30-min drive to the South. Pretty secure. Usual big-box stores close by. Inquired about staying another day, but the young kid on the desk didn't know how to accomplish it without moving us to the adjacent site - so we left. Plug for A&B RV and Mobile Home Service - one of our A/C's died after a visit to a previous campground in TN (low-volts). We called a recommended-by-the-office outfit, and they said "replace the whole unit." Called A&B, and he declared the problem on the phone - checked - and he had the part on-hand. Next-day install fixed the problem for a good price (and the inevitable "visit" gave me lots of free-bee advice on roof and awning care and repair). We camped at Bar Harbor RV Park & Marina in a Motorhome.
We paid for a "waterfront" lot. Our site was on an inside corner and had a power pole, complete with guy wires between us and the water. That left about six inches of "waterfront". The access road has a lot of low-hanging trees that require driving in the left lane to avoid. The last half mile of road is through a residential area, and is rather narrow. We will stay here again only because it's the only game in town, and my wife went to high school nearby. We camped at Bar Harbor RV Park & Marina in a Fifth Wheel.
This is a tale of two campgrounds; the first has nice sites right on the water - the 2nd tight sites surrounded by monthly campers. Be sure to get the water sites, which are mostly open during the week. On weekends and holidays they are full. Go slow on the narrowing roads in and if you have high clearance watch your top. We've stay here before and it's our favorite stop in the area, because of the view. Take the time to watch the ospreys fish, and eagles can be spotted everyday if you sit and wait. The owner and staff are friendly and helpful. Beware of power issues, my volt meter had wide swings from high to low. Shopping and dining are 10 miles away in Bel Air. Overall a good place to spend a few days. We camped at Bar Harbor RV Park & Marina in a Motorhome.
My family loved this campground. The view was great. You need to be in a water view site to see the harbor, but none of the sites were bad. Sites were not wide but we spent most of are time behind the trailer looking over the water and that is were the fire rings are. We also did some fishing and it was not bad. Store was small and needs a little more camping supplies. Also needs a little more things for kids to do. The game room needs to be up dated. Pool was very clean and nice to be at. I would tell anyone who wants a quiet weekend to stop here. We will be back! We camped at Bar Harbor RV Park & Marina in a Travel Trailer.
Stated rate is $54 for two. We had two 12 year old kids = $62. Did not use internet. Other campers reported it difficult to access and slow. Site was level. Water hookup leaked. Bugs on ground and in air. They closed pool and office earlier than listed hours. This is an old site that has kept up, bit by bit, with level asphalt camper pads and earlier install porch pads. Regulars are common. We side tripped to Philadelphia so for our purposes we were not much in camp. -1 water leak, -1 close office early, -1 close pool early, -1 ground bugs. We would stay here again.

The campground is on the smaller side, but does sit along the Bush River. We had a site on the harbor side where the water was a bit calmer. The site was a little small and you felt close to your neighbors. Though the view was wonderful and very relaxing! The interior sites were not as nice and made the place seem run down once you started to walk around. We camped here in late April, so the pool was not open but they were starting to get it ready. It was small, but probably works well for the campground in general. The employees were very nice upon arrival and everyone seemed to keep to the speed limit throughout the park. It was okay for a weekend getaway. We camped at Bar Harbor RV Park & Marina in a Travel Trailer.

Stayed one night at this picturesque location. The CG's access roads are narrow and difficult to navigate with an opposing vehicle. The site was level. Restrooms and showers were closed for the season, however we would not have utilized them if they were open. The staff was friendly. I would only return if this were the only location open in the area, due to the narrow access roads. We camped at Bar Harbor RV Park & Marina in a Motorhome.

If you are traveling in the winter, this is the only campground for MILES that is open all year. You drive through a bunch of subdivisions and viola, there is an RV park! Winter rate is $46 for every site, so get a harbor site. The harbor sites are paved and adequately spaced. The interior sites are "pass the mustard," too close together. Also, the interior sites are full of perms. Bathrooms were closed. Laundry was cheap, $1.25 for washers and dryers. If you arrive late, they have self check-in, and they give you the internet code on the self check in slip. Wi-Fi worked good. Cable TV had lots of channels, some snowy, some not. We had called ahead and were also told if we arrive late, we can pay by CC in the morning. Verizon Wireless land line and cell phone got good reception.

Being right on the water caused this campground to flood recently and when we arrived, the staff told us they put someone else in our reserved spot. It would have been nice if the staff had called and told us before we arrive. We were given the choice of two other spots and after checking both out, selected the muddy site over the one with the yappy dog. The sites are super close together. When our awning was open, it was only a few feet from the side of the next camper. Our view of the next campsite was of an unused sewer hose on the ground and who knows what was leaking from the black/gray drain. We were not impressed with the maintenance of the grounds. There were dog droppings in the grass along the roads and in the dog run area. The store is small and for the most part, the shelves and cooler were bare.

We stayed in site C6 for two nights. As others have mentioned, there is standing water everywhere when it rains. Not much mud. This area is very low and on the inlets of the Chesapeake Bay. Not much drainage for the water. There were quite a few seasonal sites but that was not a problem for us. The staff was friendly and helpful. Small camp store with a few essential supplies. Roads were paved. Security gate to get in but code posted at the gate, not much of a security gate. CG would be nice for a family that used the water access, we do not. If visiting the Baltimore area again, we would stay somewhere else. We camped at Bar Harbor RV Park & Marina in a Motorhome.
