Love, love, love this campground. It's quiet and we love the fact that you back your camper up to a man-made lake. All the sites are spacious and the owners and employees are very friendly. Can't wait to go back next year. - Caddy073

Great looking park quiet because it was after schools started so we had our pick of sites. The only thing wrong with this park is that they had two shower and bath houses with just one shower and toilet. If someone was showering or going to the bathroom you would have to wait. The sbath house was about 10 x 15 and quite nice but only one in each location. I would never stay there if it was prime camping time. They seem to assume that everyone showers in their camper. The A/C did not work in the bath house and they had no intention of fixing it and the outside light to the bath houses were disconnected because as they put it Bugs. The bathroom toilet outside of it was never cleaned so do they clean it? A little pricey for what you get. - snoopy216

The park is an amazing experience. The beaches are super... It's important to note if you haven't been here that there are no hook ups ! Generators are used heavily. We used ours and many people used theirs. There are generator free loops available. I can't say generator usage bothered us and given the hot weather we experienced while there I don't blame anyone for using one. They must be shut down at 10 PM and may resume at 6 AM. The park is very large and it's easy to find seclusion and quiet areas. There is a visitors center prior to entering the park. (This is not the check in office). Also, there is a second park within the large park operated by the State of Maryland. They have a similar campground too and both the federal park and the state park basically share the same roads and beaches. You will see the wild horses and experience nature... bring your bikes! - Jim and Ben

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

Rate reflects the non-weekend 50% discount for the Maryland Golden Age Pass (age 62+) - which is AVAILABLE FOR OUT-Of-STATE RESIDENTS, too - plus the Reserve America fees. I reviewed this park in 2014, and not much has changed. Beach is just on the other side of the dunes, and is never crowded since the day-use part of the park is well-separated from the campground. It's almost like having a private beach. Interior roads and camping pads are paved, rest of campsite is sand/dirt/grass/weeds. Only one loop has electric and it is usually full in summer. Drinking water is available at the dump station. There is no shade, but temperatures are usually ~5° cooler than inland areas, with a sea breeze, too, but not always. The wild horses wander through the campsites, but are no problem if you follow the rules. As would be expected, there's some horse manure around, and clean-up seems to be done rarely, if at all. Ticks are also present. The bath houses have been modernized since I last reviewed the park. Showers are a little cramped, but with plenty of hot water and good pressure. They are cleaned daily, but with heavy use they can be a bit sandy. No WiFi, except at Camp Store/Snack Bar, but I did OK with my cell phone hot spot via AT&T. This is a great park if you value proximity to the beach, as I do, but some may not care for its lack of shade or modern amenities. - NoVa RT

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

We always enjoy our stay here but park was not as well maintained as previous years. Watched several employees obliviously walk by garbage and discarded clothing. Food was excellent at Lazy River Saloon but several tables are broken and carpet is disgusting. Horse "barns" are rundown and do not shelter animals adequately. Loved the dog park. - Wiliard

Mixed emotions. If you're in the center areas of Frontier Town you're either going to be choking on dust or mired in mud, depending on Mother Natures mood. To avoid it you have to pay the extra high fee of getting a site on the outskirts or one of the waterfront sites in this very large park. The setting of the sites around the marina are great. (we've been in Z3, Z4 & Z8). They're beautiful and serene. But that's why there is a steady stream of walkers and (speeding) golf carts on their way to the "point" to enjoy the view.
That's my gripes. The good points of Frontier Town have been documented by others and I agree with them also. - campiflo

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

We enjoyed our stay. Our site could have been better maintained, poor grading, standing water, mud covered with a piece of dirty carpet. It had rained prior to our arrival. Loved the dog beach, our little dog had a blast. Nice pool area. The park is expensive but they have a lot of amenities included. Would stay again. The power was steady. - SteveandAnn
Aug 2016 - $125.00
Park was crowded and noisy......pool was small and loaded with kids.......hot tub water was green ( would not trust using it ). The " TIKI " bar was a mess......LOADED with green FLYS......so bad we could NOT stay and enjoy a drink or the music. The dog beach was very nice if you own a dog. Sites where decent and level and close together.
The days we were there they had a bad sewer back up over night and flooded about 6 to 8 sites with raw sewer water covering outdoor rugs and camping equipment. They covered it with fresh sand and called it fixed.
The camp store sells fried bar food and is expensive......but the coffee shop was nice and clean with good coffee's and ice cream.
Don't think we would return again .....even if they offered a discount. - Don-Deb

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 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

Milburn Landing is a nice little part of Pocomoke State Park. Showers and restrooms are new and were cleaned daily. Brand new wash sink for dishes with garbage disposal. Rangers drive through a couple times of day, but campground is self registration when you arrive. Some sites with electric, but water is not at sites. There are a few spickets throughout the campground, but plan on filling holding tank on way in. There is a spicket by dumpsters. There is a boat ramp near by and also a location to put in kayaks and canoes. Playground and pavilions are located in area. Pool is located in the Shad Landing area. Cell phone use was fine, never tried over the air tv. Firewood is for sale at office for $5. Stores are located on RT13 about 15 minute ride. Will definitely be back. - acenorm

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

We arrived 30 June 2015 and were greeted by the Lodge secretary. What a bundle of sunshine! She gave us wonderful dining recommendations. We pulled into one of four sites. Four back ins/pull thrus, two 50 amp and two 30 amp each with water and sewer. The sites were rather level with all we needed and only $10 a night! We were really pleased! We booked for a week! We were amazed at their $1.00 Monday hot dogs, Tuesday $1.00 hamburgers, Thursday $1.00 tacos...so inexpensive, Such a friendly staff and only $10 per night stay as long as you wish Come on down Moose members! - DigMyPast

Waterfront locations are super spacious, silent and peaceful. 24 hour security seen constantly roaming the grounds. Office open 24 hours. Only minutes away from the beach, ocean city, attractions, Bethany beach, Dewey beach, Assateague, etc...
Jet ski and boat rentals right around the corner. Good eats right outside of the grounds
Employees don't nag you while on the grounds. Pet friendly and I didn't have to have my dog leashed.
Amenities include: pool, skate park, bath houses, laundry facility, volleyball.
Grounds are clean. Lots of seasonals but I wouldn't call it a trailer park by a long shot.
Many inlets for docking boats.
There is a trail, but I didn't pay it too much attention to rate it.
Close to grocery store and hardware store.
Not a lot of Mosquitos which could have to do with time of year.
Staff respond quickly to any issues.
A "scheduled" water main repair: the water was shut off for a water main repair without warning to any of the short stays. (This was a scheduled repair).
Known to flood. However, if there's availability else where you'll be accommodated.
Employees tend to cater to the seasonals. But overall aren't rude.
No cable in certain locations. Not even with the cable box you rent from them.
To summarize our stay at Treasure Beach we absolutely loved it. We'd stay here over and over again. - On_my_whey

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
