Rules. Rules. Rules. So many rules. And they nickel & dime you for everything. The pull throughs in section F were long. Very long. They could have fit at least two big rigs. The sites were about 80-100 feet long and not very wide at all. They should spray for ants and bugs. Even in a wide open section with no trees at all and a campfire going there were just too many ants. We camped at Merry Meadows Recreation Farm (formerly Morris Meadows) in a Travel Trailer.
Park was very quiet. The terraced lots were very nice; however, being forced to pay extra for a lot that had a deck and a pick-nic table when we did not need one and being told there was no sites without decks available for us was a lie. There are sites available that have no decks. there was too many rules that were all No This, No That, etc. Get over it people. The best part of the whole stay was the nice even long pull throughs. I must say the lawn needed to be mowed. I only saw one employee down here at the end of the park where we were during a two day stay. The lady at the office was a bit rude when she made it clear she closed the office straight up 5:00pm. arriving late due to traffic tie ups we called her she said our pass would be in the mailbox..... awwww wasn't that nice. other people in the park were not very friendly. Getting here was a bit of a trick with all the hills and rough to handle curves with a 31 ft RV and a 20 ft trailer in tow. And the deposits for everything ...come on Stop trying to nickel and dime everyone. To charge a guest to come visit me while I'm in town is not good! I will not be back in this park, nor will I recomend it to my traveling friends!!!!! We camped at Merry Meadows Recreation Farm (formerly Morris Meadows) in a Motorhome.

Stayed here off-season to visit friends. Beautiful view from The Terrace, also excellent satellite reception. Great walking trails, level pull-through sites, friendly staff. Very quiet park (although it might be louder when everyone is "home" in the summer). We would definitely stay here again! We camped at Merry Meadows Recreation Farm (formerly Morris Meadows) in a Motorhome.
We stayed in the campground for four nights. We have a 40 ft. RV with a tow. The campground has many trees making the drive a bit tight but manageable - we took the car off before going to our site. We had a shaded pull through that was quite nice. There are many shaded spots in the campground but there is also a large open area with drive throughs that are tiered. Plenty of room to pull through with a tow. Staff and campers were friendly. We would stay here again. We camped at Merry Meadows Recreation Farm (formerly Morris Meadows) in a Motorhome.
The campground is now called Merry Meadows, they had to change the name when Mr. Morris retired and his daughter took over. We enjoy this campground very much, it is quiet and peaceful, even though it is close to Baltimore and to York. They have many activities for children, and weekly "special" activities for both adults and children. I see that there have been complaints about rules, we do not agree. The rules make for a safe and comfortable stay here. My only complaint is about the wifi, which is extremely slow at times, I'm hoping they upgrade their service sometime soon. We camped at Merry Meadows Recreation Farm (formerly Morris Meadows) in a Fifth Wheel.

This is a very nice, family friendly campground. There are many things to do, including a driving range. Many seasonal campers. Some transient sites are in the woods, but most are out in a field, on a hill and very narrow. Not a great choice for big rigs. A good location for sight seeing in nearby Amish country. Good camp store,and an on site restaurant/snack bar. We had a good time visiting the area. We camped at Merry Meadows Recreation Farm (formerly Morris Meadows) in a Motorhome.
This campground is 12 miles from home & we have camped here numerous times in the last 10 years. At least one other time on a holiday weekend, but never had visitors. Therefore, we had no knowledge of the visitor or card key deposit amounts & could find no info on website. Well all visitor rates are doubled for a holiday weekends, day or overnight. I guess this is to discourage visitors or make more money, you decide. The answer from the office staff was "it has always been that way". This seems contradictory to a holiday/family or friends get together, even for a few hours, just for lunch. The pool was very cloudy, the snack-bar was understaffed. You enter the pool through the snack-bar & the only food allowed inside the pool area is from the snack-bar. The driving range is now reduced, no drivers to potentially send the ball over the fence to the adjoining property, the Morris Museum. Of course, very few spots had tees, most were missing or broken. Some of the roads are narrow & needed potholes repaired, The roads can be navigated slowly & they are one way, just look out for the seasonal chipmunks in their golf carts. No credit cards for reservations, cash or check only. I am not likely to return, even though it is the closest campsite to home.

Merry Meadows (AKA Morris Meadows). Upon arrival you will be asked for a $10.00 deposit per vehicle for the needed card to get you through the gate. You will also be required to leave a deposit for any courts you may use (pickle ball). This is of coarse refundable but they will only take cash as payment. The Staff is not very friendly either. They cater to the "Chipmunks." We camped the weekend of the apple festival. This was an interesting experience. They advertised a craft area and flea market which consisted of 1 Avon lady on site. They were also selling apple butter and cider but not until they put back enough for themselves first. They were not prepared at all, and very disorganization at best. As far as being dog friendly, you can not take your dogs to the activity field. There are a ton of rules and they make you sign a waiver upon arrival. The roads are so narrow that if 1 person is walking on the side of the road a truck and trailer can not get by. This also takes you through the woods and is just as narrow to get out of the park. Be warned the "Chipmunks" think they own the road and will not move. Even when they see a truck and trailer coming up a gravel path up a steep hill. The terrain is very hilly. The water pressure is terrible as well. You take your chance on losing electric every night and that in turn will make you lose water. If this does happen they will refund you $2.00 (WOW). Overall this campground is was not a good choice. We only live 1/2 hour away but will never be back. We camped at Merry Meadows Recreation Farm (formerly Morris Meadows) in a Travel Trailer.

Wi-Fi only available around front office area, not at the campsites. ALL visitors have to pay a fee even if they want to visit just for lunch. Grill/cafe is very convenient. Level 50 amp full hookup sites are a big plus. No trash pick up at the sites; dumpsters further away than at other campgrounds. Phone line hookups are for the long term campers. AT&T cell service is excellent. For these reasons = Grade B Campground = Good Campground. We camped at Merry Meadows Recreation Farm (formerly Morris Meadows) in a Motorhome.
This is a nice enough campground for families. Appears good for family outings. However, LOTS OF RULES. Another thing, very low water pressure. A little too pricy for us as fulltimers. Reason here is to visit family in the area, otherwise would not consider staying here. Would be a budget breaker. Good clean swimming pool. Grass mowed and all sites look well tended.

This is one of the best parks in Maryland. The park is huge. There are many types of sites available in terms of shade or no shade, view or no view, with deck, or no deck, on a hill or in the woods, etc. The park is made up of mostly long term campers, but the managers and owners were all very nice to us. The on-site snack bar is great in terms of grilled food selections and price. We ate all our meals there. Lot of on-site hiking trails and fishing pond, very dog friendly place to walk your dog, no need to leave campground. The site we were on was level, but there were many sites that had a slant to them. The biggest issue with this campground is that the Wi-Fi is only available in the front office and game room which is right next to the front office. The campground needs to have Wi-Fi available at all its sites before it can earn a 10. We camped at Merry Meadows Recreation Farm (formerly Morris Meadows) in a Motorhome.
Pull thru sites were so small I had to BACK UP to get out. They had enough rules to sink a ship. Separate additional rule sheet if you have a dog.Barely made it through the roads there with our trailer. This was the most expensive place we stayed at on our trip from Texas to Massachusetts and offered the least. Needed sales receipt to access pool... Now Really. Power went out in our area at 7:00 am next morning and no one acted like they cared. Blame the electric company. Office and other areas had power. Wanted to charge $1.10 for a lame 6 oz. cup of coffee. I WON'T VISIT HERE EVER AGAIN. We camped at Merry Meadows Recreation Farm (formerly Morris Meadows) in a Motorhome.
This campground has the potential to be something special but it really misses the mark when it comes to activities. Honestly I think their "planned activities" are a JOKE. The sites are nice, pricey but nice. I wouldn't mind paying for the site except again there's nothing to do. The management is so worried about their rules and regulations that they don't worry at all about people having fun. Here are some of their lame attempt at activities: "Breakfast with the Bosses" (excuse me? bosses? really?) pickle ball?, drive in movie (seasonal campers with their annoying golf carts watching an old movie played on a bug infested screen taped behind a pavillion), play rehearsal (again for the "chimpmunks", build a paper airplane? and that's it! Well they do have a pool (which closed at 7 pm) and a game room which closed at 8 pm. And folks this was a Saturday night. If you're looking for a quiet place with lots of rules, rude golf carts and nothing to do, this is it. If you have kids and want some activities for your money, drive a little further and go someplace else! We camped at Merry Meadows Recreation Farm (formerly Morris Meadows) in a Travel Trailer.
This is a really nice park, but we rated only a "6" because when we pulled in, the site we were assigned was very trashy. We had to spend a half an hour cleaning it ourselves. The other problem was with the electric service. At one time the voltage was down to 99, and the rest of the time it settled around 108 on a 50 amp site. The sites are nice and big and there are lots of activities for families. We camped at Merry Meadows Recreation Farm (formerly Morris Meadows) in a Motorhome.

This is our very first campsite we visited after we bought our travel trailer. We consider it our "home" because it was the first! It is very quiet and around pretty surroundings. We stayed at sites "cliffhanger" and site 38 which has a cable hook up which was nice! Both sites are pull-throughs. We will always go back to Morris Meadows!
