9 RV Parks near Dundalk, Maryland
Jun 2010 - $27.00
This is not an RV park. Instead, it is a mobile home park that happens to have three long-term RV sites nearby. Sites rent only on a monthly basis at $795/mo, including all utilities except cable and phone. You get a regular street address and USPS mailbox at the street. The sites are very bare bones, with gravel pads that are pretty level, picnic tables at two of the sites but no patios, full-hookups, and grass is mowed religiously by on-site caretaker who lives just two doors down and is a bit nosy. The sites sit right on Bull Neck Creek. This is a blessing and a curse. Great views of the water, fishing, and lots of waterfowl, but the area is prone to flooding, and the sites get boggy fast. We often find ourselves stepping out our door and into a puddle after a big rain. In the event of a tropical storm, hurricane, or unusually high tides you will have to evacuate. The driveway into the sites is not paved so gets rutty and muddy in snow and rain. If you aren't careful, your vehicle and rig can get stuck very easily. Septic tanks sometime back up, but maintained man will pump them for you. Electric, water, and cable supplies reliable. Very quiet park and neighborhood. We've been here nearly a year and have never seen a police car or ambulance in the area. We've also had no neighbors in the other two sites during that time. The mobile home park sits right between two county parks with fishing and boat ramps, so recreation is readily available. Property manager (who is located off site) is very friendly and helpful and will work to accommodate your needs. Pets are allowed ONLY on the RV sites, not in the mobile home park or in the stick-built homes nearby. Large, open field nearby where you can walk your pets. You are responsible for taking your garbage to the curb once a week and supplying your own garbage can. Raccoons and stray cats in the area, so you don't want to sit your trash out unprotected. Sites are about a block away from railroad tracks, and trains do come through in the wee hours. High tension power immediately adjacent to the sites. This said, these are the ONLY RV sites near Baltimore that allow pets, have full hookups, cable access, AND allow long-term residents. Lots of mobile home parks in the area do allow RVers, but most won't allow pets. If you plan to winter over in this park, know that you'll get to shovel the 100 feet or so to the street in the event of a blizzard (we had three this last winter). The county does plow the streets, and there is some car parking about a block up, so you can park your car or truck there in the event of snow. Carpenter ants are a problem here, and they will eat the wood in your RV, so be careful. We haven't yet found a good remedy for them except keeping the tree branches over our rig trimmed back. Mosquitoes are also fierce because of the nearby creek. I'd give the park a higher rating if the sites and driveway were paved, if the drainage were better, and if the monthly rate was a bit lower, but I suppose this is the cost of living right on a tributary of the Chesapeake and only 20 minutes from downtown Baltimore. - Mary Jo

Nice park and 20 minutes to Six Flags America. Typical sites and set up of KOA franchise. What separates this one from other KOA's is the staff. Super friendly, very helpful and constantly cleaning, straightening and working hard. Campground does not have cable but you can get about 18 channels and all four networks. Internet seemed strong and worked when requested. Worth staying at based on the staff alone. Will be back.. - Big Kahuna

We were lucky to get a space because the park was full. Halloween weekend planned for families. Loads of fun stuff for the kids (which we did not have). We stayed here to tour D.C. so it was fine for our needs. Seems like owners go out of the way to plan activities. Even had outside movies at night. Can handle all sizes of RV's. - Paige Taylor

We stayed the weekend after Labor Day. Temperature was in the 90's. Pool was already closed for the season. Boo.
Work campers really were busy working all day keeping things clean and repaired.
50 amp super sites were fine. Sites in the trees in the back would not accommodate a big rig. - Couch9748

The park is very shaded with black top roads and level graveled sites. As with most Maryland parks no water on the site. If you are lucky you can get a site close to a water spigot and run water to fill your tank with a long hose. In this case we were there only for two days so we did okay. Fire pit and picnic table were on the site.
We arrived west bound and went through the tunnel. Our height requirement was 10.5 feet so we cleared the tunnel height clearance of 11.1 feet. Not having been here before we didn't see any signs as to location of the campground; had to stop a ranger to ask directions. A couple of signs would have helped. Also the entrance was somewhat confusing at night after closing. You have to enter the exit to enter the code and go about 100 feet to the camping sites entrance and enter the same code again. This was a little redundant I thought. The lower rates for the camping fee is for senior citizens of Maryland, they enjoy about a 40% discount. All things considered, a very nice park. At&T was good. - Nautilus

Loved this park. A little difficult to get in and out of but it was worth it. Be very careful on your approach to the park. One entrance has a very low bridge and most RVs can't get in. Call the park for directions. The road down to the campgrounds themselves is very steep, just go slow and be careful. Camp hosts were great, sites very clean. The sites are nicely spaced and shaded. Good walking all through the park. A walk down to the river a must. - The Sandbox

In the woods. Quiet. No TV reception, satallite or antenna and no cable. Only 15 miles from Baltimore. Ft McHenry is a great place to visit. It was the inspiration for the Star Spangled Banner by Francis Scott Key an attorney based on the battle fought there against the British during the War of 1812 that he observed while on a ship held by the British. Sites are spaceous, back-in with electric only. They do have a picnic table and a fire pit. No other amenities. Please note: Enter the park from the Westbound 40. The Eastbound 40 enterance has a bridge with a clearence of only 11'. - Michael Kibler

Over the years we have been going here, it is getting better. The place is clean, the sunsets are the greatest. We would give a better rating but, 1. the price is too high (no full hook up) 2. the sites are on the small side. 3. because of the price keep going up, they are not putting it into the bath houses were it needs to go and the dump stations need to be concrete, the mud is terrible. We would like to give this place a 8-9 rating, because the staff is great, and the place is clean. But it is what it is. Also, we had very low water pressure, it was better using our pump. We never had this problem before, think maybe because the park was full, because as weekenders started leaving the pressure got better. - RW40KB

We stayed here as an overnight stop on our way home. We called ahead for a rerservation. The campground was a bit of a drive off Rt. 301 and the office closed at 2 p.m. and there was no one to greet us. Our confirmation email had a site number so we pulled in. The campground is on the shore of Chesapeake Bay. Bayside sites were $15 more and not worth the extra money. There is no swimming pool. The only place to swim is in the bay. The beach was barely six feet wide and the bay was a rocky bottom. We waded in to cool down and that was it. Not sure we would use this campground again. - slay

Campground was clean, grounds looked good, but they go by two sets of rules. One for if you have a yearly site, and one if you tow a trailer in for the weekend. They tell you to stay off the grass with tow vehicle no mats down. The gravel area is just enough for trailer wheels, no wider, but the yearly site people park on grass. The weekend was fine parking on the gravel pad for me, but some hard larger rigs they had to park tow vehicle in an empty site . Just didn't like the two sets of rules. - servyor

We've been here a month with a couple more weeks to go. This is a very nice park. Spacious lots, very nice laundry and shower building with a couple break room/library/game areas. Lots of trees but probably ? to ½ of sites are possible for satellite reception. Overall very quiet, except for the base special of reveille at 0630 over the base loudspeakers. Earplugs are useless to counteract, but we got used to it. Better than train whistles or traffic noise. They don't do it on the weekends.
They don't have wifi or cable, though I understand they're working on that right now.
Only downside is there's been a bit of musical spots. Their reservation software doesn't optimize the spots to minimize moves, so we moved twice in a week, but spent almost a month in the current spot. Seemed like it could be minimized since it was mostly people already there moving around. When we extended, the person we dealt with in the office made it so we didn't have to move again, but the experience/interest level of the staff varies.
This is certainly the best value in the DC area. We will be back in the spring for sure.
Rate based on monthly rate. - Seb

Very nice campground. Sites are big with plenty of space between them. I like the fact the grass gets mowed regularly. Good option for the DC area. We would do so again. - rwarner22

Great location for visiting family and friends. Once you've been here, it is easy to find. That first time can be difficult, though! Office staff does leave something to be desired. All utilities worked well. Laundry room very clean and all in working order. Will definitely stay here again! - CanDo

Since my last visit the campground has become populated with permanent party personnel, making reservations difficult. Effectively half of the sites are occupied by long term occupants. It has become more of a housing area, rather than a FAMCAMP. - hw8200

I would expect that a campground associated with the US Naval Academy would be more up to date. This campground needs an upgrade to bring to the standard you find at USMA and USAFA. - hw8200
Nov 2012 - $9.00
The campground is not in the Academy section of the Navy base. That makes it hard to find and difficult to get to. One has to drive through a residential area on a curvy road where there is a lack of signs pointing to the campground. That is one issue that makes it not big rig friendly. Another reason is that the interior campground road is gravel and hilly with some sharp turns. Most of the sites are concrete pads, but they are not long enough to provide plenty of space for a longer RV. I noticed just one pull through. Power is only 30 amp. There is no sewer. I did not use the dump station. The bath house is an older, heated, cinderblock building. It was clean, but adequate only to serve its purpose. The Wi-Fi signal is not generated from within the campground and is weak. There is nothing for the kids to do. A primitive area exists for tent use, but sites aren’t marked. Verizon 3G was fine. During another season, I suspect there would be little satellite signal reception because there a lot of trees. Over the air TV channels are plentiful. The campground is half full of permanents; most likely service members who are stationed there. It is a short drive to the full service commissary, Exchange, gas station, and golf course. Check in is at the MWR/gym facility that is several blocks past the campground. There are no convenient places to park an RV while you register. They honor the America the Beautiful card for a 50% discount and that is reflected in my rate. This is just an OK campground that is better suited for shorter rigs and those who want an inexpensive place to stage from while being a tourist. It won’t be on my return list. - RLM

Stayed 3 nights. Campground dates back to the 60's - small, tight sites. Great location right on the water, if you can just adjust to your neighbor farting in your window. - EnjoyinLife

There was so much duck-poop all over the grounds, it was difficult to walk around the site or the campground. A pretty water view, but noisy due to a busy road and railroad just west of the campground. There were only a couple other transient RVers; most of the park was filled with permanent residents. The sites are very close to each other: it would be claustrophobic in the summer. We would NOT visit this park again. - Forest Woods

Long Term campers are forgotten by management, at 850 a month you'd assume roads would be swept, leaves raked and friendly courteous hosts and lots of activities for kids. We found this not to be the case. Half the campground has a ban on campfires. The campground is surrounded by water but there's no swimming as we saw, it's all tidal marsh lands about 3 foot deep. They do allow dogs and motorcycles. Getting in touch with anyone in the office after hours is next to impossible. - gbbudd1-

We stayed here with our Stockade group. There are only two large open field sites available. We stayed at site 1 which is closest to the bathrooms. There is a water spigot near the restrooms but there are no shower facilities. Each site has a fire ring, picnic tables, and a nice new BBQ and a large wooden cooking type area built next to it. It even has hooks for your lantern. The rangers were nice and came out to check on us a few times and the park is great. The disk golf course and hiking trails were a big hit. We would stay here again. - Cfamily

Shore Park Campground. New RV park on APG. Park appears less than 1 year old. All sites (about 30) have Water, Sewer and 20/30/50AMP electric service. Walking distance to small fishing area down a small hill. Pad site is level concrete. Interior roads at campground are asphalt, and easy to navigate. Road was a one-way road, but park was not crowded, so it wasn't a problem. - usamacdonald2

This review is for the new Shore Park Travel Camp that opened in June 2016.
There are 24 back-in sites and 5 cabins (cabins are not open at this time) on the campground site. Some sites will only accommodate RV's up to 30'. Most sites look fairly easy to get level on, but there are a few that a big rig might find difficult. The layout is a little "hinky" - depending on which site you have you could be backing in on your "bad/blind" side.
Right now it is pretty exposed but a large number of trees have been planted between and behind sites. Frankly, there may be some issues in the future with the placement of these. Even with the current openness we were not able to get a signal for our satellite at all due to the large trees on one side of the park. FYI - we use a tripod mounted dish that allows us to pretty much place it wherever. There was another Class A that pulled in on our side and soon moved to another site because they couldn't get a signal with their roof-mounted dish. They do not want ANYTHING placed on the grass areas without written permission.
Since everything is brand new and there haven't been a number of people there, the bathhouse is in excellent condition with the exception of some bad starters on the lights. Didn't use the laundry but 2 washers and 2 dryers may not make it going forward.
Sites are all concrete and the road is blacktop helping to keep things cleaner. The sewer connection is raised about 9" off the ground. No cable or wifi. We did not have an issue with service on either our Verizon Jetpack or T-Mobile phone hotspot.
Pet owners: APG is an active testing base so you do hear the blasting/gunfire - usually in the mornings. Not deafening but it can shake your rig if the gun is big enough. - hdchickinfl

We stayed at the small 11 site RV park located where the mobile home park used to be. They are just now opening a new campground on APG with 25 RV sites and also rental cabins. Closest place to stay near grandkids. Price is good for the area. Difficult to get through on the phone to make reservations. Also reservations must be paid in full at the time of the reservation. We were able to get our roof mounted sat dish to come in by staying nearer to the front of the site. Still had room to park our minivan in front of the motor home. - D&K
