12 RV Parks near Havre de Grace, Maryland

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

Clean park, excellent facilities. The hookups were really nice, with exception that the sewer was about 8 inches off the ground, which made downward flow impossible, even with our hose support. The base has check-in down to a science, with a combo to unlock your utilities. Plan ahead--washing clothes requires a laundry card. You have to go to MWR to purchase a card (which they round to the nearest dollar, so you lose .50 depending on the number of loads you want). You then turn in your card before you leave, or incur a fee. Sites are nice and level. We had deer walk through our site a couple of times. Nice location. We would stay here again. - RVerFamily

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

This is an older park with a lot of full timers. There are a lot of flies that drive you crazy. It is a nice walk around the CG especially near the water edge. The park was clean. To reach the park, you must drive through a neighborhood with low hanging branches. Lots of scrapes and scratches. - Michael47

The sites in the campground are somewhat tight together. And there is not a lot of room for fire rings or kids to play. He site needs to have some maintenance overall with the grounds, the parking areas, and the roadways are very broken up. At one time I think the campground was very nice but you can tell that it has fallen into disrepair over the last several years as they have not put any money into maintaining the grounds or the utilities at the campground. The pool area appeared to be nice but we did not use it . There are several private residences in the middle of the campground which is somewhat odd and generates a lot of coming and going traffic. Do not follow GPS directions to the campground or it will take you on some dead and residential roads that do not connect to the campground I recommend looking at aerial photos of Google maps before you navigate to the campground. The road way back to the campground is very tight through residential neighborhood. The campground staff in the office was very nice and helpful. - Lspajm

This is an older park, celebrating their 55th anniversary, but it is very well kept! We asked for a waterfront site, but there were very few that would accommodate our 37 foot rig and truck. The sites are pretty tight too, like they've been in such demand (and I can see why with the location) that they've built a site everywhere possible. The site we ended up on really had an obstructed view, but we were happy enough after a huge event! There was a tree there behind the site next to us that a duck kept parading around! Low and behold the next day I discover a hole in the trunk that is down about 3 feet! Inside the trunk? her ducklings!! I went and told the fantastic staff and they came right down to see about it and brought a stool and a fishing net to 'fish' them out.. We were grateful to see Mama and her ducklings swim off!! We had a good bit of rain and chilly temperatures, so we didn't try out the pool or any other water activities, but we really enjoyed sitting out and reading with a wonderful breeze!! - the burtons

Beautiful park, and great layout for peace and privacy. Not great for meeting your neighbors though, as the sites face away from the road. You end up camping behind your trailer. Still very nice. Very spotty cell phone coverage. We had to walk to the store to get any T Mobile service, none in the site. A little buggy, but not excessive. Some sites may be difficult for larger trailers to get into. - Kevco

Very well kept state park. Site #106 a bit tight for my 25' trailer but fit. Choptank Loop more well suited for tenters. Rainy weekend so hiking was limited to loop walks. - Doneitall

The campground is down a mildly windy road. Once in the staff is very helpful, knowledgeable, and friendly despite the overwhelming rules they must go over when you arrive. A hair more strict seemingly than other Maryland State Parks we have been to in the past. We had no trouble with navigating the North East loop however many others did. Observed the pull through sites as tight by being narrow and short. Watched several campers over the course of our stay have a hard time getting their midsized campers parked on their site. We also observed many sites that required extensions for their sewer line. The utilities for our site was in front of the tongue and required an extension for our water. Our site was nicely shaded with some grass for pets. The drive way was on a hill able to accept two vehicles. The camping pad levels out and was enough room for the trailer. The site needed minimal leveling. The fire pit at this site has a grill, lantern holder and picnic table. On the loop there is a nice clean restroom/ shower house that is close and playground which is out of sight of this site. The main amenities are all a short drive away. The camp store was large with not too much different to offer. The lighthouse is a sure stop. There is no handicap parking and often times must wait to park due to the popularity. They have very limited hours for tours. The hike is level gravel with rolling hills. Once there beautiful views you can take in. The beach is nice. It is regularly unmanaged meaning there is debris on the beach and no life guard. The swimming area is quite large and tapers out several hundred feet to a depth of about 8-12 feet. Overall enjoyed our time and would go again. - Coleman Pop Up Family

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

Just got back from a very disappointing weekend at Yogi Bear. We have been camping at this campground for over 25 years. I think the place has great amenities and the new owner has done a great job updating the place. That being said, maybe it is getting too big. We had trouble with the sites behind us. They played rap until after 2 am this morning. I finally had to call the emergency number only to have them call back and they had misunderstood what the issue was. I am not sure why no one spoke to them before I called or why they were aloud to play such vulgar lyrics all evening but between that and all the drinking at the pool I would no longer call this a family resort. We really did not get a good explanation or any satisfaction when we went to management. We are booked again in the fall but may have to reconsider. - LTCampers

We live within 45 min. of the park and have been here 3 times before. We have thoroughly enjoyed this park, especially my kids over the years. We have been to MANY Jellystones and this one was by far one of our favorites. Each time we come they seem to add a little a more and appear to be investing/upgrading their sites, facilities, and activites. The waterpark has grown over the years and is nicely done. As far as the comments on the fees for everything; they are no different than any other Jellystone. Renting a golf cart was helpful given our distance to all the activities, office, and pool area. The camp location is perfect for daily excursions to Amish country. Overall our trip was going great until the 2nd to last night when we came back on a Friday night. We were blessed to not have any neighbors the whole week but as we all know these places tends to fill up on the weekends and this was no exception. It was around 11 PM and you would have thought it was mid-day. The neighbors who moved in must have been with a group of 5-10 other families. Unfortunately they made the communal campground next to us. The volume of rap music (uncensored) and talking (also uncensored) was the loudest I have heard in my 19 years of camping. My family and I were thinking that the campground security would soon be around to shut this party down but much to our dismay, It kept going with no end in site. FINALLY at 2 am, (Yes we were ALL still awake from the noise) somebody finally showed up and the party dissolved after another 30 min. of partying. We ended up packing up and leaving one day early. We causally told the desk about the nightly disturbance and they said under there breath that they received multiple complaints that night. Never really apologized and certainly didn't offer anything for the inconvenience. While loud campers is not specifically a Jellystone issue, How they handle it is. They failed miserably that night and it will greatly impact whether we ever stay again! - pacpiper

We have stayed at Yogi Quarryville numerous times since we have been camping and as usual this year we returned for our annual Mother's Day trip this year (15 families between campsites & cabins). And as usual the weather didn't co-operate, that being said we still had a great time at the cg. Every year we keep coming back you can see that they are investing in the property, this year they replaced the pavilion with a brand new activities building. But to be honest this is the first year we have had issues with staff, check in was not easy out front at the main entrance like usual, instead we were directed to the ranger station and then had to head inside while numerous staff members hung out on golf carts on their cellphones, once we registered then we had to wait for one of those workers to escort us to our site. We also had an issue when our group tried to re-book the site for next year and 3 different families went over the weekend to do that and got told 3 different answers as to when they could re-book (finally got settled and were able to re-book). Office staff would not allow us to use Yogi Rewards for this stay or a future stay as we had applied a discount to our reservation, again this never was an issue previously. For the second year in a row we lost water (to be fair it was the result of a lightning strike this year) but the staff worked very quickly to get it working temporarily in the storm. The next morning though a plumber showed up to fix it but CG staff never notified any of our group that they would be shutting the water off in the morning, leaving some of our group high and dry in the shower and we had no water to flush our tanks or clean up stuff from the rain before we packed up. Had we got notified we would have put some water in our fresh water tanks. When one of the group complained to the office they got a 20%, others from group were told there was nothing that could be done and that water would be turned on shortly. - SJEAGLES609

Rude lady at check in, $5.00 charge for 1 hour early check in at 2p, not told that water pressure is excessive which caused a leak in our water system and a trip to have this repaired. Close sites. Site was just long enough for motorhome but the hookups were 30-40 feet away. The park, not the campground, is quite nice. - User3020

We stayed at Muddy Run for a weekend. It is close to the Buck in Lancaster County. It is easily accessible from Route 372. The roads within the park are tight and windy. Most sites are not level. At all. The sites are tight and difficult to back into. Many sites are very short. The water and electric connections are shared with other sites. You need extension cords to access connections. There are no sewer connections and no honeywagon service. The only options for emptying tanks are to have a portable container, to call a local service for $30, or to hook up and go to the dump station. We didn't understand why people would stay there for more than a few days. The bathrooms were not clean. You will get charged if you park your car in a neighboring site, even if the campground is empty. There is a large lake but swimming is prohibited. There is no pool. There was a nice nature trail. There is a restaurant on site where we had breakfast, which wasn't bad. - Lori and Larry

The park is very spacious, with a large lake. Sites with electric & water are limited, so call ahead to see what is available. we stayed in site 57, but also like 120. ask how far connections are, they could be 60 to 70 ft. away because they are located to service a couple site. Other than that this a very nice park. Large grocery store about 10 min. away. About 30 min. to Lancaster. - vince/chestertown

Rate reflects monthly stay. The nightly rate for shorter stays is more. This is a nice campground in Lancaster County. Many of the sites are spacious and level. Sites in the wooded areas are smaller and more difficult to back into. The wifi worked well as did Verizon service. There is no cable TV but many channels come in using the antenna. The staff here are among the friendliest of any campground we've stayed at. There are multiple trails on the campground to walk, and there are two great parks within 2 miles. There are a lot of campers parked here full time with people staying here during the winter months. We were parked up on the hill which can get quite windy and cold. There are other campgrounds in the area that we've stayed at and Tucquan Park was by far our favorite in the Holtwood area. - Lori and Larry

First off no matter what way you go in there are some nasty hills getting into this place. Getting into their driveway off the road damaged the trailer, your coming down a hill, have to go through a dip then up their driveway. The road and driveway are scarred from all the dragging trailers. Terrible design. The driveway is well pruned once you get into it. Staff were friendly. We had a pull through site which was small. They claim WIFI, my phone found it once but couldn't get on. The "new" bathhouses were disgusting. No dumpsters for recycling. Lots of seasonals and they all looked to be pretty well maintained. Managed to get out of the driveway without any additional damage and won't be going back. - ferguson65

I camp at this park frequently and I disagree with the earlier reviews. The owners of the park are very accommodating, and this park is very family oriented. My children enjoy this park and there are many things for my children to do. the The people are friendly, restrooms are clean, park is clean. I disagree with the run down trailer park statement, camping is about being close to nature, and having a good time with friends and family, not about how something looks. If you are a true camper it doesn't matter whether you camp in a tent or a luxury motorhome, it is about family and this campground is just that! If you want luxury parks with all the bells and whistles, then maybe you should seek out the local Hilton Hotel! You will not be disappointed! - Trailblazrtracey

Stayed 4 nights while our house was packed up to move. Large sites, with plenty of room in between them. All asphalt pads, although not all level. all manageable with minimal blocks. Full hookups but no WiFi or cable. Our site was shaded and unable to find a location where our satellite would acquire. Minimal camp store, but that's expected for a state park. Three Camp hosts, and all nice. Very clean. New bathhouse and clean, but we didn't use it. All sites 40' long, but just enough to park in front for one vehicle. plenty of space in the overflow field. - DebDon

Wonderful campgound in Lums Pond State Park. Sites are very spacious, level macadam and shaded. There is a very small camp store and there are two camp hosts on-site who are very helpful. There are no other amenities within the campground but the state park has many amenities that are available to campers. - JVRich

State park with FHU. Very large loop that sites are spaced out around plus some other smaller areas. The large loop is all grass so it is quite attractive. Sites are pretty large but nothing between sites for added privacy. There are a lot of mature trees so it is a mixture of sunny/shady spots. Interior roads are paved as are the pads. Site is wide enough to park on the side. All utilities were good. - DRKM

Great check in! Very helpful and informative. Gave us brochures, maps, etc... Looked like a smaller version of a State Park. Windy steep hills to get to the park, so if you're pulling a tow vehicle, you may want to unhook. If you want to use the bathhouse, bring coins. - StephanieBekker

First, the management (young husband & wife) are very pleasant and accomodating but, are the only staff. The office & store are only open Fri - Sun from 10am to 9pm. Any other time, you have to ring a bell for service. There is a nice play ground, pavilion and "Game Room" but, it's only open during store hours & closed the remainder of the week. A play on the old Roger Miller song....No pool, No phone, No Internet seems to sum up this facility. There is no internet service available anywhere in the park (the office even gets their service from HughsNet). Cell phone (Sprint) is in constant roaming & spotty. OTA TV gets MAYBE 4 channels from 2 stations & only if you have an upgraded antenna booster w/wingman. Satellite service is almost impossible to tune in due to the 100 - 150 foot tall trees in all areas of the campground (dish must be on the RV or on your site only, no running cables across roads or other sites). Our particular site & patio, was very uneven and with deep ruts from rain washout (they do NOT seem to care about regrading or filling in these washouts). There are several seasonal units on the grounds & although pleasant, they all seem to stay amongst themselves.
The facility is owned by a new regional power (electric) company and while we were there, a power company employee came around taking a survey on our stay. So, maybe, some changes/upgrades will be forthcoming soon.
We probably would not stay here again. - rracer5
