12 RV Parks near Havre de Grace, Maryland
May 2017 - $35.00
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

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-

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

Sites were somewhat close together, but not bad for a state park. Entire park appeared to be very clean. There is a beach, several trails, a light house to visit. All of these required driving to another part of the park, it would be a long way to walk but could be done with a bicycle if desired. As with many state parks, you are not allowed to bring in fire wood. There is a camp store where it can be purchased. - JFB1

Lovely state park with well spaced campsite. Full hook up sites are awesome. Lots of mountainous trails to bike or hike. Not too far from the cute town of NortEast, which has some nice restaurants and shops. - pamvanw

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

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

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

Very impressive campground for the price, $25 plus a $4 online booking fee, Lums Pond is convenient to Rt 301, DE Rt 1 and I-95, making it a great overnight stop when traveling through the area.
Entire campground has recently been renovated, with wide, paved and level back in sites, and lots of spacing between sites. Each site has FHU, including 20, 30, and 50 Amp service. Most sites are in an open field, with little extra lighting, and very quiet at night.
Shower house is very clean and modern, with separate shower rooms from the main bathroom. Camp hosts were friendly and helpful, never saw a ranger. Park is open year round. If planning a weekend stay you may want to book online, camp host commented that they have been full every single weekend since June. - Cyclonic

The campground is amazing since it was redone. All sites have electric, water, and sewer. Not all sites are level and some are shorter for small rigs. Big grassy area in area near the restrooms and showers. Nice and quiet at night with no big lights to keep you awake. The trash bins were located outside the entrance, and a comment to management would be to move them closer to the roadway so you could drop off the trash and go without blocking the exit as some did while another went to the trash bin. Not a big problem but just a thought. The campground has some low areas that I saw a fair amount of standing water after recent rain, near the camp sites. Some of those could have dirt fill put in and raise those areas so you wouldn't have mud near your rv, again just a comment. Very nice park and certainly would camp there again. - delacamper

We had camped here some years ago and the camping area seems to have been renovated since then. The park is not too far from I-95. Our site was level and appeared to have been very recently paved with asphalt. Bath facilities were clean. Nice small pond in the park. - liz&denis

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
