14 Parks near Hancock, Maryland

I'm glad that we stayed in our small camper and didn't bring our 39-foot 5th wheel because the sites available to those who are not seasonal campers are small and unlevel, and tree branches are low. I watched one 5th wheel break a small branch off a tree. Be prepared to be out of service for outside communication. Cell service is very poor, and my phone's data service wasn't strong enough to pull in the Internet. The park has Wi-Fi for $3.95/day, but I was not able to connect. One of the seasonals told us that it doesn't work well. They do have cable TV. The speed limit is 5 MPH. Cars were going much faster than that. There's a trail that connects to the Western Maryland Trail about a mile away. Walk your bikes on it! It is full of ruts and rocks and is very muddy if there has been any rain. We took the road to the trail. However, it's a long hilly ride back up to the campground. The store is well stocked, but it is open only until 5. The staff is friendly. Be prepared to pay extra for miniature golf. (We weren't interested in playing it, just mentioning this FYI.) I don't know whether or not there is a charge for the pool. It was not open when were there. They were draining it, I guess for some sort of repair, and the water was running down the road. People there were friendly. It was okay to stay a couple nights so that we could ride our bikes on the trails in the area. However, I would not return. - bhg

Review on AllStays seemed nice so we booked an overnight stay on our trip. We were given alternate directions on phone because of low hanging trees on the GPS route. Thank goodness for that. Even with the improved directions we hit leaves and branches about seven times but no damage. The campground is in the middle of nowhere so would never use for an overnight again. When we arrived we were offered two spots to choose from. After a tight tour around the campground we went back to office as both were really not very level. The gentleman said to my wife, "Oh, you are in the ginormous rig." We are 35' feet, hardly ginormous in the motorhome world. He told her about a couple other sites, both of which were fine. We had a great night. Electrical (30 amp) was fine, water fine. Did not use sewer but hookup was convenient. The staff was quite nice though they should have warned about the lack of big rig facilities. Area was quite rural and very full with campers having a great time. Lots of four wheelers. Lots of families. Lots of long term residents. Several of the long termers had really improved their lots with decks and cookers and tables. If you are looking for a longer stay with a fifth wheel or a camper, this would really be nice - certainly a four or five. I could receive no Wi-Fi but did not ask about details. Bathrooms were older but pretty clean and adequate. We were really concerned about the noise from the carts and four Wheelers but by bedtime all was nice. Evening was quiet. There was even a wedding that day along with a reception. We walked by the area while to reception was going on and thought the music was a bit loud until we realized the door was open. When the door shut, we could barely hear it. I guess I have a bit of a problem with campgrounds that want to be everything to all people. They should have let us know about the tightness of the spots. Our slot was a pull-through but we had to back out to keep from running over short stumps. I guess that is why I chose a three instead of a four. We enjoyed the people and the place but the initial hassle was not worth it. - jubilee32

As has been pointed out before, the biggest downfall is the seasonal residents and their powered activities in the form of weed whackers, four wheelers and gas golf carts. The wifi is extra and you have to sign up on line and pay via paypal. I couldn't get it to work on my IPAD. AT&T doesn't get a signal, so be prepared to be without communication. The cable is about 26 channels, so don't count on watching your shows. If you want to enjoy the western trail, your best bet is driving the 7 miles back to town. - bikeman911

This campground is far off the beaten path. The drive is 5 miles down a narrow and winding road. The campground is clean and is mostly used by locals who keep a seasonal trailer there. We stayed in a 25' travel trailer and I can't imagine anything larger negotiating the drive or the campground. But if you are passing thru and want to get off the beaten path, this is the place for you. It was wooded and quiet. - sara158

We stayed here from Thursday to Sunday. The sites were wide and clean in the woods. The staff was great from check in to check out. We will come back. - southerncreed57

We stayed here over Memorial Day weekend. The office staff was very friendly and they had a nice pool and playground, but this place still left much to be desired. This campground has very little sites for transients and most of the 200+ sites are for permanent trailer residents. The sites also have very little privacy and we had to back our trailer in facing the main road loop. There was a lot of traffic noise due to the major road that was located behind our site, and the loud trucks, ATVs, and golf carts cruising the transient loop. Although the two pools and playground afforded some time away from the campsite, there really wasn't much room or privacy to enjoy our site. From crying babies to listening to vehicles drive around all night, you would think they would at least try to enforce the quiet hours. Granted you can't really stop a crying baby but there's a problem when you can see all your neighbors clear as day, camping around you. Unfortunately the only time we saw any staff was upon checking in or when we had to go to the store. By the look of the bathrooms, the staff wasn't around to clean them up as well. They were dirty and had very little privacy in both men and women showers. Communal in the mens and no changing stall for the women. They did have some activities planned for the holiday weekend but when the actually day came, no one was on staff. This meant that the store and pool weren't opened. So the day in which most people enjoy the first weekend of the pool being open: nobody was here to let people use the two pools. Too bad because it would have been nice to take a dip when the temps hit 90 degrees. Overall we tried to make the best of it, but we will not be returning to this campground. PS: The 6 miles it takes to get to this campground off the interstate, is a very curvy and mountainous road. Plan on taking it slow. - jackey_q

Located in the gorgeous mountains, this place is a gem. There are many seasonal sites here, and that does not detract from the quality and friendliness in the least. The owners are superb. Our power and water were adequate. Our site was gravel and level. There is a nice pool and a little store. - LittleCastle

Saunderosa is a very nice campground. I have always enjoyed camping there. There are some very nice spots by the creek. The kids especially enjoy playing in the water all day. The pool is adequate but you have to pay extra to swim in it. Saunderosa could use more weekend campsites as most sites are permanent. And the bathrooms also need more attention during busy weekends. - GaryKPA

Great location for us, 6 miles from Whitetail ski resort and even closer to the golf course. It's back in the middle of nowhereville, but a nice quiet campground. Did have a playground that my kids loved. Didn't look as pretty as the web site pictures, employees were VERY friendly and saw them driving around camp ground a lot, which makes me feel better. There are a lot of live ins and a lot of people that leave their camper for part time visits but its was quiet. On the Saturday night that we where there we did hear some load music and people but it didn't last long or late, not sure why it stopped but it did. (not sure if employee stopped it or it stopped on it's own) WE WILL STAY AGAIN AND WILL UPDATE AS NEEDED. - suzipittard

If this park had sewer on more sites or even a dump station, I would give it a better rating. However, we were happy here and the office people were very helpful. We stayed here 3 nights and were very comfortable...just no place to dump. The sites are set up different than any other park, but we were near a small creek and felt lucky to have the site we did. BTW, the restrooms were very clean. And there is a well equipped RV store on the premises.
People advised that you can't turn left to get on I-81 when you leave, but turn right and it's only 2 miles down to I-81 south (or north). - Ginny H

Gravel roads & sites in a treed gully. Sites are very close together with no privacy and most sites won't allow satellite reception. Had good wifi with full hookups but no cable. Friendly management gave directions to a free boat launch on the Potomac. Close to I-81 good for an overnight stop. - Appleknocker

Stayed here one night again, as it is about halfway on our annual NC to NY pilgrimage. Went with a 30/50/W/S/E this time. Site was nice and level, with easy in and out. Love the easy access from I-81, friendly helpful staff, large store ,and propane. We should probably try other campsites in the area, but why fix something that isn't broken. - BounderPounder

Watch, Watch, Watch your routing into the park. From northbound I-81 my GPS took us a route I wouldn't want to do again, with finale being a corner we couldn't make, getting into the campground. Had to hold up traffic while we disconnected and went the other direction to get turned around...good grief! Refer to their website for approach directions...don't trust your GPS for directions. I depend on my GPS (Rand-McNally) because of low bridge, bad railroad crossing warnings, etc. but this time it really let me down!
Campground entry is a dusty mess..a little pavement from a few decades ago with dust galore. People were polite and clearly try to cover for some of the ills of the cg. Grossly overpriced...unless, even with the world-famous KOA discount, you would consider $50/night to be a deal. Just another severely overpriced KOA! - Tcamperman

We were looking for a place to stay for 1 night and chose this KOA since we have had good experiences staying at KOA in the past. This KOA is tired and the roads to get to the park are vert narrow to the point that with on-coming traffic, you have to slow down or stop to pass by each other. Once in the park, the sites are clean but show their age. The staff is very friendly and tries to be helpful. You will be escorted to your site. We stayed here in a 45ft motorhome towing a 25ft stacker trailer. We were quite the show and apparently the biggest rig to come here, ever. We had a good nights sleep and all was well. We would not return here because access to this KOA is very tight, out of the way (which is not a bad thing) and for what you get, a little too expensive. The chicken and goats pen, however, were an interesting touch. - Olivia Las Vegas

At check in the lady asked if we were staying in a 43' 5th wheel. I said yes. Two nice young men escorted us to our site. Too small for us to fit. They called the lady in the office. She put us in a nice pull through, then she asked the escort when we were leaving. WHAT????? (She had just checked me in and charged my visa for 4 nights.)
SO she moved us again.
This is the 3rd site. Right next to a cabin. Cabin's porch looks directly into our rv. Can't open our awning due to a close tree. UGH!!!!!
Lots are very close to each other, but offer some shade. Sites are gravel and feature a picnic table.
Would NEVER EVER stay here again. Long narrow road to get here. - 20165thwheel

We were the only campers in this gem overnight stay. The campsites are in a huge grassy field with water and electricity hook-ups. Dump and dumpster at the entrance. We spent part of our evening under a covered patio type protection attached to a huge old (1800) barn, because of a tornado alert and then a thunderstorm alert. We were able to pull our Class B RV in under shelter in case of hail (there was none, but a huge rain).
The showers have plush carpets in front of the stalls. Spotless washrooms. And the campground is on a creek. - skidiver

This is a very hard campground to rate. It is very rustic and beautiful, however the interior roads are minimal and the majority of the sites are grass only, without any stone. We were concerned that we would not be able to get our motor home out without getting stuck if it rained. They have three full hookups sites that are basically in a circle with PVC pipe cobbled together to one sewer hole. On the up side, the water pressure was good and the 50 amp electric reliable. The owners were friendly and helpful. We were visiting friends who live in the area and this was the closest option near their home. Due to the size and weight of our 40 foot motor home, we would probably try another campground further away if visiting the area again. - D&K

Not close to the highway and only 3 sites had sewer. No 50 amp service (30 amp only). However, clean restrooms and showers, nice views and beautiful property. Would have loved to do more than an overnight. Would stay here again - next time for a couple of days. - bbnh2000

Aug 2016 - $128.00
Kind of expensive for Hagerstown. We paid extra $10 to pick site & $25 to checkout late 6pm. The 700's sites are more level than the 200's. Visually sites look level, but when parked, front is lower than rear. Front tires almost off ground. Sites are not level, but at least they are as flat as can be for the land. Laser tag $5 day, $10 night. Zip line similar charge. Water slides free. Clean resort. Nice pool and playground and activities, store, and restaurant. Not much to do in Hagerstown outside resort. - univmd

This park is geared to families and I understand that and usually when I use it, is for a one night stop. But $89 for one night and the site was not level is just frustrating. The site was easy in and out on gravel and out in an open field. The entrance to the park does wind around trees and you need to be careful.
This time I dropped them down from an 8 to a 6 do to them wanting me to stay 2 nights or no reservation. To do one night I had to wait till the week of the visit to reserve the site. I understand it is summer and they can be busy. When I got here, half the sites in the field were open. They could have given me the single night when I called 3 weeks before, as they knew then that they probably would not be full. - peddy dick

We were the only vehicle being used. There were a number of abandoned trailers. The swimming at the river was closed and is a hike away from the park. The advertised "museum" is run down and with unused equipment around. The caretaker was helpful. Would not recommend. - User2759
