10 RV Parks near Elkton, Maryland
Feb 2017 - $1.00
The site is mostly park homes and permanent trailers. Some of the sites are nice but many are incredibly trashy. I wouldn't call it a resort, it's just a camp ground. There is no laundry facility and they don't allow washing machines to be used. There is no Wi-Fi, no cable, no satellite reception. The campground web site says there is a camp store, however there isn't anything to it. We planed to stay long term but have decided differently after one month. Electric is metered for long term campers, however the rate they charge per KW is double of what the average is for the area. The price is way too high for what you get. We will not be staying again and wouldn't recommend the campground. - DWB

A lot of full timers, friendly staff, men's room clean and recently painted, many off season construction projects going on, my site was within a traffic circle and I only had 20 or 50A service available. - User3064

This is not a resort. Rather, a campground with 90% permanent residents. There are 2 sites in the campground with reasonably level gravel and FHU 30/50 amp service. We had to move to the 'overflow' on uneven grass with 30 amp and water only mid stay. Had to use leveling pads on one side of the coach get level. If this wasn't the closest to an event we were attending in New Castle, DE, we would have made other arrangements. There is a pool which we closed for the season. The price is way too high and we won't stay here again. - 2sunkid

Nice park but some sites not as level as others, with all full hook ups sites this park is becoming very popular so word to the wise for weekend stays reserve early. - DBLR

There are not many options in the Philadelphia area, and even less that are open year round, so it was nice to find a nice, freshly refurbished, state park campground that is.
There were a few long term campers in this campground that rebook every two weeks, leaving for some confusion when I pulled in to find someone in the site I had booked. I had happened to book the site just before he rebooked. He was there all winter, and wasn't moving, but there were plenty of sites, so I just choose another, as it didn't matter to me. The host was very helpful and pleasant as he cleared up the confusion.
Bath house in this park is brand new and was very clean and well designed. Sites seem to have been all redone and were level, with all hook-ups working well. They were also well spaced and easy to navigate, most were in the open with just a few trees around. The park itself is easy to navigate with paved interior roads and not far from US301 or I-95, but still quiet at night. - Cyclonic

This is a good place to overnight. There are no utilities. Probably the worst part was we were parked on the north end and a train is right behind the trees there. Next time we will park as far south as we can. We felt very safe as there was security driving around all the time. We visited the casino and was surprised to find it was non-smoking....YEAH!! - jacknpeg

We were looking for a place near Wilmington but couldn't find one. So, we decided to "boondock" at the race track. It was very convenient and the weather cooperated and was cool. They don't mind if you camp in their parking lot, but want you to use the back parking spaces. There were quite a few truckers who overnighted too. I had to put a price, but there is no charge. - har-fl

Northeast Loop is full hookup. Nice, quiet loop with full shade and walkways from each site to the bathhouse. Sites are bigger than advertised. Lots of hiking and biking trails. The grass wasn't cut, but that's the only complaint I can come up with. Our site was level with a gravel patio area. We will come back often. - DebDon

What can we say, another great Maryland State Park with lots to do and full hookups. Check in was friendly and easy. We stayed in the North East Loop on Site # 14, great secluded full hookup / pet friendly site that is very easy to back in. Water pressure was great, electric voltage was perfect and no issues with the sewer. A visit to the bath houses to check out the cleanliness and there was no disappointment there, spotless and nicely heated on this cool April weekend. Plenty to do here for a long weekend or possibly a week. We hiked the Pond and Marsh loop trails, many more hiking trails available. A trip to the lighthouse is a must see, do this before 10 AM or after 5 PM due to limited parking at the trail head. Kayaking was easy, there is a great put in spot at the Rougues Harbor Launch area. The town of North East is a ten mile drive if you forget something or want to go out to eat as there are some eateries in the town. Note, some sites have an incline where it might be a little hard to park a RV over 25', check the website and use their guidelines. Other sites we could manage with our 33' motorhome and parking for our toad in the future would be (in order) 14,3,5,11,13,30,22. There is also a laundromat and camp store. Cell service on AT&T and Verizon was one bar, good enough to text. - bug512

Our third time to Elk Neck, first time in the new fiver. We wanted to keep close to home (less than 100 miles), but can't stomach Jersey state parks. Very quiet this time of the year, just us and the campground host. Periodic patrols of Maryland Park Police and park service employees add to the sense of security. always a good hike out to the lighthouse, lots of improvements being made all around the park. My wife just turned 62, so we signed up for the Maryland golden Age passport when we checked in, half priced camping. If you like quiet, clean state parks, this is a good choice. - monkeypants

We had stayed here about 10 years ago and when we had to visit Delaware again, we again found that this is the ONLY place to park an RV in Northern Delaware. The price is extremely high because there is no other place to go. Very difficult to get into the park as highway 40 and the Dupont Highway split right in front of the building and there are large traffic walls. We had to go North on the highway, do a huge U-turn in driving rain and rush hour traffic before we could reach the entrance. Also, the name on the sign is different. It's supposed to be Delaware Motel and RV Park but the sign says "Delaware Autocourt-motel and trailer park" Also it says "build to suit" indicating to me that the place is for sale as well. I had trouble calling them for reservations but finally got through. We had a large dumpster next to space one, where they put us but told us "it had just been emptied." One of the big surprises was "the siren". I had read about this in reviews of nearby motels. It seems that the fire department is two doors up and whenever they get a call, even at 12:30 a.m, this enormous civil defense siren starts wailing. I thought it was for a nuclear attack the first time I heard it. It is so loud, its beyond belief, and hard to comprehend that they still do this activity in New Castle, Delaware.
The site we were at had reliable 50 amp service, water, and sewer, and I would have to say, even with the abandoned semi trailers scattered about, the people staying there were very nice to us, didn't bother us, and the maintenance fellow checked us in during a huge rainstorm, and waited out by the site to help us hook up, and he was sopping wet, but took it all in stride. It's just too bad somebody doesn't spend the money to whip the place in shape. They have a nice large area for the RV's, but it seems that there are mostly monthly or semi-permanent residents. There is a motel to the East of the RV park which you drive past to get into the spaces. - elduque

This place was way over priced for what it offered , but it was about the only thing available along our route - there aren't many campgrounds in Delaware. It's along a very noisy road, and the fire department right next door adds to the chaos several times a day. As previously mentioned, this is a place for an overnight stop only. There is a lot of junk sitting around from the hotel, and some rather unsavory-looking folks walked through the park while we were there. Nothing more than a gravel lot behind a motel, but the full hookups worked well with strong 50-amp power and water. We don't plan to return. - LowesTravels

Good place for and overnight stay. When verifying directions with MapQuest use address 259 S. Dupont. And in the Woodalls book it says 50 Ft. where US 40 and US 13 divide, it is really right at the actually divide. There is a Walmart just down the road on the right, you could walk there. But when leaving if you are headed east and want to get on I295, just go down to the WalMart, pull into the parking lot, go out toward Wilton (the street that runs in front of WalMart) turn left onto Wilton, go to the light, cross over US 40/US30, you'll be turning left on to US 40E this will take you back up to I295. - Travelin Jenkins

My first time in a Maryland state park, so I wasn't prepared to decipher the 16 different camping prices, depending on electric/non-electric, state residency, Golden Age membership and the day of the week. Not sure what formula they use that causes most of the rates to end in 74 cents, payable only by cash or check - not the most convenient when the campground office is closed. To the ranger's credit, he did tally the fee box for the night and insisted on bringing me the $0.26 I overpaid. Only eight electric sites on the Acorn Loop, and we were lucky to snag one that wasn't reserved on a weeknight. Bathhouse looked very new and was fantastically clean. Sites are heavily wooded and quiet. Weak Verizon 3G service. - RVNed

Site was very shaded, and probably the most secluded feel of anywhere we've camped. Camping pad was nice and level, although the driveway was slightly sloped. One of our bunk ends extended beyond the pad into the woods, which was just fine by me. Nice amount of space in between sites. Short walk to bathouse, through the woods behind us. There were also several, very private, "walk-up" type sites for tents.
Facilities/Overall Park: Bath house was immaculate; by far the cleanest I have ever seen in a campground. Must have been recently renovated. Deer Creek day-use area was nice; had a big playground and a few pavilions. Picnic area was an open field with very little shade, and the amount of goose poop was unreal; like walking through a minefield. For that reason alone, I don't think I would host any events there. There is a little fishing pond there, which my husband and daughter enjoyed. We hiked back to the campground from here, which was a nice easy-to-moderate trail. The beginning was pretty rough for me, since I was wearing my infant son while navigating an uphill trail, but it quickly evened out. There are also plenty of areas to stop along the road in the campground, with access to the creek for wading. The water felt great, but the bottom was rather pebbly. There is a historic area in the park, with a working grist mill, mansion and other little buildings to view. Not really my thing, but was pretty neat. The views of the river are really nice from here. - Jenventola

The sites were large and flat and each had it's own grill. The bathrooms were cleaned several times a day and were always very clean. My kids enjoyed playing on the large play areas and fishing at the pond. Next time we will try the river. We were very happy with the park and the park rangers were extremely helpful. We will be going back. - 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

Once again we were not disappointed in staying at Yogi Quarryville. We have a large group that camp at Quarryville for Mother's Day for many years now, and each year we come back they have improved the campground somehow; it is nice to see that they care about the conditions of the park and keep it immaculate. Verizon signal was good, no satellite available in site due to tree cover. 2 pools were open (1 heated), water park was still closed. - SJEAGLES609

We stayed in the buddy site along side of my parents camper. We spent a total of $1326.00 for the week for both campers. Site 5I and 5IA. I complained 3 times to staff concerning the freezing cold water in the shower house. Water pressure consisted of a little stream of water, not even enough to wash the soap out of your hair. My family did not get even a warm shower all week, even after complaining. The staff are all teenagers and need some training on customer satisfaction. A lot of campers the past week was complaining about the water in the shower house. The lower shower house had hot water that was scolding the children as other parents was stating. The bounce pillow was always full of bigger children and our two daughters could not even play on it. Very disappointed and will not be returning to this Jellystone Campground. Question is: How were they voted 2015 Campground of the Year? Activities was very repetitive for the week. Waterpark..staff were not helpful and again very young..water guns not working..Just have to be honest here, have stayed at a lot of Jellystone Campgrounds and would say this is the worst for the price!! - Chad5134

Stayed on Site 13. Nice large site with blue stone. Had to bring the front of my motorhome up about 8 to 10 inches to get level. Side to side was okay. All ground cover behind site was poison ivy so be careful. Our dog kept trying to walk through it. Some TV channels had no sound and some were fuzzy. Nice pool and water park. Lots of things for the kids to do. $60 per night for golf cart rental. - enfd7

When arriving at night there should be better lighting, signs for numbered areas and numbers on the electric post, not on arbitrary trees. We had to get out of the car (rainy night) and shine a flashlight on many sites to find ours. Roads are in poor shape, rutted and narrow. Sites not level and are hard pack which is messy and gritty when wet. There were many other available sites but we were given a deeply forested back-in site swarming with TICKS! My husband took a shower which was never more than barely warm and the showers are not connected to the bathroom. It appears to have nice facilities and great for kids but I would never stay here again for the amount we paid including our KOA membership which I am beginning to question. - Dc22

Site was not level and had to back in to get into it. WiFi was very strong. Good Verizon connection also. Cable also available, but station selection was poor (not the full range of major networks, and no MSNBC, but did have some local stations). Pricing varies based on whether there is sewer hookup at the site, which we didn't have, or just water, electrical and cable. - OlderGoat

very nice KOA, but sites are tight together, ours was up on hill behind store, which was great for WIFI but it was just dirt..no grass or gravel on doorway side..so tracked in a lot of dirt and mud going in and out. our awning was 3 inches away from next sites awning. staff was very nice. stream at bottom of campground , but no fish were caught. the new patio sites are very nice....but way too expensive. road going in was tight, but we had 25' so no issues. - yorky

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-
