2 Parks near Berlin, Maryland
Aug 2015 - $25.00
Very clean park. Bathrooms were clean, but primitive (only pit toilets). Showers were clean but only cold water (which actually feels great, considering you will likely get sunburned at the lovely beach!).
Sites were kept clean, though watch for the horse poo. Wild horses roam free around the park, but are not a nuisance provided you keep your food put away and watch what you cook when they are near.
Some sites are bigger than others, but all should accommodate larger rigs. Roads are all paved.
The park is minutes from Ocean City, Md. The park also has two beaches, which are kept clean and family friendly.
Zero hookups at this park.
Would definitely come back! - grim509

$25 with pass $12.50 but might be going up. This NPS campground has always been one of my favorites and on our recent three week camping trip from RI to NC we stopped for two days going down and two days coming back. The campground is divided into the Ocean Loop sections, Bayside and the tenting among the dunes. Bayside is beautiful in the spring and fall and very buggy during the summer. Oceanside is great for all the seasons but can get very windy during storms. Your site is one dune away from a beautiful ocean beach. There are no services but upgraded pits and cold showers. This is camping on a barrier island with kayaking, biking, nature hikes, beachcombing and an OSV zone. The wild horses and there are about 94 of them roam free all over this park including in your campsites and on the ocean. As the weather gets warmer you will see more of them near the Oceanside. Tenters need extra long stakes. It is so nice to wake up hearing the waves crashing on the beach. There is a visitor center as you drive onto the island with an excellent movie about the horses. A Maryland State Park with camping and some electric sites is located just before you enter the National Seashore. NPS entrance fees apply but the Golden Age pass gets you in free and with 50% off camping. This is an enjoyable camping experience. Reservations for the Oceanside Loops especially on weekends are needed! The days we were there we spotted dolphins and kite surfers moving from north to south in the ocean. Great place except when there are storms. - gsnakehill

This is a great park with some considerations, there are no hookups except for the Host sites, no hot water at all even at showers, restrooms are clean but primitive. On the plus side, there are sites for every size unit even the biggest Riggs, all sites and roads are paved and your either on the ocean or the bay. Cell service was fair, of course there is no internet unless you have your own. TV reception on a boosted antenna was really great. Our price was with a National Park pass, which is half price. They are open year around, reservations can be made from mid April to mid Oct, otherwise first come first serve. I can say in the summer don't try without a reservation it will be FULL. We like the ocean side, less bugs and gen are permitted in all sites, bag side allows gen in A loop only. All rules are STRICTLY ENFORCED. Have fun - rmckee

Used the restrooms (showers) 4 times and they were clean only once. AND the shower water was SCALDING HOT with no ability to lower the temp! I told the office 3 times and after the 3rd time the temp was lowered but still not enough. I talked with others in the shower and they all agreed that the water was way too hot. Also used the gym and the pin (to increase the weight more than 10 lbs) on the universal weight machine was missing. I told the office and checked the gym a few more times and it was still not replaced. This resort has a lot of amenities and really is a great place; they just need to respond to reasonable requests. The stones on the site are WAY too large & have sharp edges. They should be smaller, smooth pebbles. Every staff member we encountered was friendly & helpful. - boomer3

We had been staying at this camp many times each season since they opened as Castaways several years ago. Since they were bought out by Sun Resorts, the service has progressively gone downhill over the last couple of years. It had been our favorite camping spot as previous ratings would indicate; however, we will not be returning, mainly because of the poor customer service in the management office. We and several of our friends often camp together, and we all have been having the same issue with the management not answering the phone, and not responding to voicemails and/or emails, making mistakes and losing reservations. We did not receive a response to our multiple messages requesting to extend our stay until we reached out to them on their facebook page. It was so frustrating that we canceled all of the remaining reservations we had for this year. We are really sad about this because there had been no better place to stay in the Ocean City area. In addition, the sites are not kept as clean as they once were, with trash left everywhere in empty sites. Our trash sat at the end of our site for two days before someone finally came and picked it up during our last stay. But again, the main reason we won't be returning is the indifference received by the office staff. - rebcon

Opening weekend stay one night, get one free was great. Allowing us to check out late was great too. Wifi worked very well. Att wireless 3 bars. Site perfectly level. Site surface is asphalt in club section, gravel in regular sections. Value is very good, only because of second night free. Resort is not fancy. - univmd
