17 Parks near Newark, Maryland
Aug 2015 - $98.00
Nice park, mostly seasonals, so it was quiet. Two pools, store, snack bar, laundry. A lost of the sites you are near water, either a cove or the bay.
Not a lot of shade, but our site was level. Had a concrete pad, but we put the trailer on the gravel alongside and put out carpet/table on the pad. Saw a LOT of drainage issues when I had looked at their Facebook page and wanted a dry spot. WiFi was at the game room area only, but we were able to use (at times) Xfinity hotspots when the signal was good
Nice spot to be at close to Ocean City, MD, and beaches. - Pondguy

Most sites are seasonal RVs and park models. Our site was next to impossible to back into in a 38' trailer. Site was a sand base with some grass. Showers were very small and without handles to adjust temperature and flow and didn't drain. For Wi-Fi you had to go to pool area, not available at site. Cable is available but you have to give them a deposit and hookup a separate box. Not worth the price! - Mahalo

Great location to visit area attractions, just minutes to ocean. Mostly permanent sights, most were well maintained. We camped in a lovely spot facing the canal. Nice facilities: pool, office, store and laundry very clean. Our only complaint, the park needs more trees and shade. WiFi only works at front of the park near the activity centre. - acadiandave

State Park with lots of activities. Fishing, free bike rentals, trails, great kayaking, nature center, row boat and pedal boat rentals. Check with the nature center for pontoon boat tours. $6.00 very reasonable for one hour informative tour.
Large well spaced sites , on dirt and pine needles. Older bathhouse but clean. Quiet and uncrowded during our weekday stay. - grj

We have camped here many times. Always enjoyed our time here. This time we were a little creeped out by the guy riding around on a golf cart. He was tattooed on arms, neck and face. I guess he was a host. He rode around like he was casing the place. Bath houses were clean, pond was beautifull as usual. The pontoon boat ride done by the park naturalist is a must do for visitors. - doghouse traveler

Very good shade, pull-through (Loop D) was fine for my 30' motorhome; however, I saw the longer RVs struggling with the tight spaces between trees. Other loops (A-C) were more accommodating for the longer RVs; however, the electrical and water services were installed so that adjoining spaces shared a common water facet and the electric boxes were back to back. Swimming is not allowed in the pond; however, can boat and kayak. The conditions for bicycling were excellent within the park and the surrounding state and county roads (wide shoulders both directions). Bathrooms need updating. Laundry was $1.50 per load for each of the washers and dryers. - Chave

We stayed on the bay side, expecting to be eaten alive by the infamous mosquitos. Actually, it wasn't bad. There were bugs but a liberal application of OFF! seems to hold them at bay.
The site we had was A6, in the generator loop. We only ran our genset for battery charging and coffee and microwave use. Be aware that the NPS does NOT enforce the noisy generator rule (can't be over 60 decibels at 55' from campsite or something to that effect), there was a guy clear on the far side of the campground with one of those cheap construction type generators that ran it ALL DAY LONG, until 10pm. It was very loud and distracting.
The site was more or less level and asphalt paved. It backed up to the tree line which was nice.
"Wild" horses cruise throughout the campground at will. They like to hang out around the bath house for some reason.
We did not use the cold water showers or the pit toilet bathrooms.
All in all we enjoyed our 4 night stay, the beach is wonderful. You can rent kayaks bayside or sign up for a kayak tour.
I would have given this a 10 star rating if the rangers or camp host had enforced the generator noise rule.
Price reflects 50% NPS Senior Pass rate. - baraff

We had a beautiful site with excess to the bay side for swimming & kayaking. Interior roads and sites that we noticed were asphalt. All sites are dry. Bathhouses very clean but only cold running water for showers. Pit toilets only. Horses & deer make frequent visits. Park rangers make routine patrols. Campground & park great for biking and kayaking. Bayside campsites has more small tree growth which offer some shade. Good signal on our Verizon. Would certainly return again or recommend this place to anyone. - mdcamping

Very clean park. Bathrooms were clean, but primitive (only pit toilets). Showers were clean but only cold water (which actually feels great, considering you will likely get sunburned at the lovely beach!).
Sites were kept clean, though watch for the horse poo. Wild horses roam free around the park, but are not a nuisance provided you keep your food put away and watch what you cook when they are near.
Some sites are bigger than others, but all should accommodate larger rigs. Roads are all paved.
The park is minutes from Ocean City, Md. The park also has two beaches, which are kept clean and family friendly.
Zero hookups at this park.
Would definitely come back! - grim509

We had a site in the electric loop. Our hookups we in good working order, our site was huge and noticed most others the same. Interior roads and sites were asphalt. Typical beach area camping, place flat with little shade. Campsites are easy walking to the beach. Some of the new bathhouses were not yet finished and found the open bathhouses were not kept clean. Professional and friendly staff, park rangers make routine patrols. Horses make frequent visits. Campground & park great for biking and kayaking. We will return again! - mdcamping

Sites are paved asphalt and generally level, surrounded by grassy sand with many prickly pear cactus mixed in. No trees, very open layout. Very windy while we were there, and the open layout did nothing to slow down the winds. Only one loop has electric, and we were not in that loop. A pack of wild horses made a daily visit to the campground. The major downside: ticks. They were everywhere. We had to remove several from our bodies each day, and even found them after we returned home. - HabaneroMike

Where else could you go and see the wild ponies and have the Atlantic Ocean as the backdrop. We go here every year and we are impressed with the uniqueness and beauty every time. These ponies walk around the campsites and on the beach. There is only the day beach store and cafe with a small gift shop...The bike path is paved and level. They are re-doing all the bath houses as they are old and moldy. The Maryland Park police ride through frequently and there are camp host people assigned to every loop. - Winnebago Wanderers

Considering what you get for the high price, the value here is pretty good. The fees include daily access the park's water park which is great, especially for smaller children. The water park has a large kids pool with a slide play area in its center. It also includes a large water slide atop a large man made hill for bigger kids and adults and and has a large lazy river which one floats on in single or double tube inflatables. The water current is continuously moving so you can either just float around the large loop or go faster if you kick and swim in the tube. There is also a large swimming pool near the Marina and pavilion area in the main campground. Most sites have full hookups. Water electric sewer and cable access. The WiFi is either OK or terrible depending on how far you camp from a node and how crowded the park is. Another cool feature was the large dog playing area where you can set your dog free from its leash and watch him run and roam and meet new friends. They also have a good bus service to Ocean MD beaches and other attractions for only a buck. The camp store is well stocked and the roads are mostly easy to navigate with some tight spots, but this is not your worry when driving, the place literally packed with golf carts everywhere. This along with the small site sizes were my only issues with the campground, otherwise, it's a great place for the family and we've been going now four years in a row. Paid extra features include a Wild West town with a gun fight. A train robbery on a small tracked train that winds through the woods, a zip line, and a pretty decent rodeo. - DumpStation

This is a large campground with many "permanent" units. We were there on the Thursday before their Halloween weekend. Seemed as if every third camper had a golf cart, each seeing who could go the fastest. Roads on the interior were quite narrow. The access roads to sites were so narrow that our large motorhome(45 feet) had a difficult time maneuvering into a site. The first site to which we were assigned, which was at least 50 feet deep, was impossible to back into, because trees prohibited entry. Wi-fi was horrible. We will not return. - EdGuru

We have stayed here several years. Some sites are better than others but overall a wonderful park with great activities especially for kids. - Oma&Opa

This state park is in a beautiful setting next to the Pocomoke River. Four of the sites are small cabins that have a bed, a bunk bed and a table and chairs. The sites are quite level and the area is heavily wooded. DirecTV reception was not possible from our site. Cell phone service is good. A free launch ramp for boats is nearby. There are a couple of playgrounds for kids, plus a pavilion which can be reserved for large group activities. - Wye River Rat

Very pleasant place to visit. Its a little off the beaten path but thats what makes it so special to us. it's also very close to home and allows pets. All in all a nice place to camp. - FREEDOMRULES3

This is a Maryland State Park, we camped in the Shad Landing area. The sites are large, they were clean. The bath house is typical for MD parks, cobwebs, kind of dirty, serviced maybe once a day, you get what you pay for. Thirty amp power was good. No water or sewer, plenty of locations to fill your water tank along the loop, only one dump station which was tight to get into. The park itself was very nice, great kayaking, ride bikes, etc. There is a large swimming pool, however we did not use it. This park is nicely located between Chincoteague and Assateague National Parks, both are awesome. We camped in a 5th wheel. - SteveandAnn

Another great long weekend here at the Shad Landing (Acorn Loop) side of the park. We stayed in site 24 (I would also stay in site 7 in the future), this site provides lots of privacy and a nature trail that exits from right from the camp site. 30/20 Amp electric only with multiple water spigots around the loop. The bath house is centrally located to each loop so not a far walk if you need to use it. Small camp store with ice and firewood are available. Kayak rentals for paddling along the beautiful Pocomoke River. This is the pet friendly loop so keep that in mind if you do or do not have dogs. Also make reservations, we were here in mid October and every site was reserved for the weekend. Good amount of hiking /walking within the park. Snow Hill is very close but lacks a larger grocery store. A 8 mile drive to Pocomoke City or Salisbury is less then 30 min away. If they also had water hookups this would be a 10. - bug512

Large sites, very private. Nice little store\office friendly people. Typical Maryland State park. Electronically c hook up but not water. Have to run on fresh water tank in trailer. Very nice boat and kayak launch area. The water trail was terrific. Lots of birds including several kinds of herons, hacks many turtles. Decent fishing, caught several large mouth bass. - doghouse traveler

Our Good Sam chapter has camped at this park for the last several years, but I feel that this is the last year. The staff is quite aloof and non-responsive. When I asked for some information regarding the use of the club house for our group, the person I spoke to said she would call me back, but never did. I finally got an email response, but only after two requests. They are not flexible to special requests, like opening the club house a little earlier than usual for our group. The rates are quite high considering that we are camping in November. I think they make so much money during the summer that they just don't care, so we will move on to another venue in the future. - Wye River Rat

This campground is regularly flooded. We had water at the height of the table. Loop A and B shouldn't be available for camping. They know this situation but continue to operate it. Avoid this campground for your safety. WIFI connection is very bad. Had too take a cold shower because they were out of propane. Horrible customer service. - Floodedcamper

We stayed here for 3 weeks. It was really the only option this time of year. The lots were decent sized with sites shaded by trees. We were there for opening and Easter weekend and it was pretty party-party past quiet hours. During the week we were almost by ourselves and it was very nice. The "lake" was more like a disgusting green-poison-pond, really yucky. Playground was very nice although a little far from the sites. Also a fenced dog playground that looked nice if you have a dog. Laundry was clean and nice. Activities for the kids. - Fulltime2kids

This is a campground not an rv park. Sites are wide and angled so you are not looking in another coach. Lots of trees and our site was level. Water pressure is good. Plus on this park is its distance to Chincoteague National Wildlife Refuge and beach. Wifi was good on our site. - Pennylee

Arrived during a monsoon rain storm, lots of flooding. However, the staff was more then accommodating during our arrival. Checked in and had no issue parking on our assigned site. As anyone who has stayed at Chincoteague knows it can be buggy, but right after a rain storm they swarmed so setup was done as quickly as possible. There is a good amount of seasonal sites on the property. The store had a lot of typical camping stuff, was disappointed that there was no campground specific merchandise (shirts, coozies, etc). We like to collect things from the various campgrounds we visit. Location could not be better on the island as it close to all of the local attractions. Was very cool to see the Assateague Lighthouse light scanning the night sky from your campsite. Would visit Maddox Campground again in the future. - SJEAGLES609

Very nice campground. No problem from making reservations to check in. Office staff was very friendly. Park was very clean; trash pickup four times a day. Quiet at night. Close to National Park . - skiphen

Campground looks a little rough when you first drive in as there are a lot of run-down full time sites. Staff was helpful and allowed me to choose the site we wanted. there was a lot of rain prior to our arrival and the sites were a little muddy. Our site was across from the fishing pier and there was no one in front so we had great views of the water and lighthouse. - Our rv journey

This large park has good facilities. The spacious grass sites were a bit muddy after heavy rains. The amount paid is with no discounts; only cash or checks are accepted. The above price is with tax and seemed high for offseason. Reservations are made only by going to the web site, printing out a form and mailing it with a $40 check, but staff will tell you how full it is expected to be by phone. Permanent and seasonals are separated from the short-timers. Wi-Fi was faultless but the short-time part of the park had only a few customers. Camp store is very well stocked. Fishing permitted off the park's dock. Some days the wild ponies can be seen with binoculars from the dock. - Mtmoi

We opted to back up to the water for 2 days. What a gorgeous place to see a sunrise or sunset. Very helpful and courteous personnel. There is a small store there. A good place to use as a base to see Chincoteague/Assateague ponies and NASA launches. - rolling homeless
