1 Park near Newark, Maryland
Aug 2015 - $65.00
This is a great option for anyone wanting a peaceful vacation near Berlin/Ocean City, MD. It is a great value for the money during the peak summer months. About 20 mins. to the beaches (depending on traffic) 10 mins to Berlin. The park itself is kept very clean. The sites are very spacious with a nice fire ring. They had several cabins overlooking the lake. They had kayaks, canoes, a pool that is on the lake, fishing, really very nice. It is very quite and peaceful at night, no loud partying, people cutting across or setting up a corn hole tournament on your camp site (yes that has happened to us). The seasonal camp sites are not junky and the people we met were all very nice. We had good power, our water was fine-no smell, which is hit or miss when you are on the eastern shore of MD, good pressure. My only gripe is that the bathroom/shower was not very nice. We camped in a 5th wheel, and we would camp here again. - SteveandAnn

We stayed at Island Resort Campground for a week. Over the weekend the campground seemed pretty full, but it was much quieter during the week. We first stayed on the far side of the lake at site 67, in between two seasonal campers. The site was very level. There was no tree shade unless you walked toward the lake, which was lined with trees. The water smelled horrible. We had to attach a filter to the spigot but it barely made a difference. I used bottled water to brush my teeth and almost gagged while showering. The bugs were awful being so close to the lake and we didn't want to spend time outside.
After two days we moved to site 95. It wasn't very level. However, the water was much cleaner. There was ample shade and it felt more like camping than like being in an RV parking lot. The bugs weren't as bad at this site as it was farther from the lake. We had to get an extra sewer hose as the sewer hookup is at the back of the site and we needed to park farther up to get the most level area.
The pool was clean. The camp store was well stocked and was clean. The bathroom was clean. The laundry room was clean and had plenty of machines. It was open 24/7 which was convenient.
I did not use the WiFi as my Verizon phone worked well as a hotspot. They say the WiFi can only be used at the camp store; however, my computer picked it up from site 95. I didn't try to connect as it cost $5.00 to get the password. - Lori and Larry

If you go here knowing about no cable or wifi (although there was supposedly wifi at the country store), then it's a great park. Would highly recommend site 17, a back in site but a huge corner site next to lake and very level. Many sites were not level. Sites are spaced very nicely. Little shade. Beautiful lake. Lots of gnats but no Mosquitos. Restrooms very nice but long walk. Utilities and antennae reception were great. Roads are wide and majority of sites are back in. Great country store. Staff was friendly. - VegasVagabonds
