Island Resort Campground is a large campground, but sites are well spaced out for the most part. I think some of the sites would be more pleasant than others. In general the setting is lovely! We were there during the not part of summer, so I particularly noticed which sites had some shade and which sites did not. The "N" sites, N1 through N31, are in an area with no shade. Some of those sites do have concrete patios. They seemed close together to me as we rode around. Sites 1 through 17 are beside the lake. Beginning with #7 there are large evergreen trees between the sites and the lake. The trees give shade in the mornings, and can be a shady space for fishing or playing at any time of day. Spaces 94, 95, and 96 were tucked in among some trees. Site 23 through 30 have young trees beside each site that did provide some shade and will continue to do more as the trees grow. The river bank on that side is very steep. Sites 73 through 93 are prime as they have large evergreen trees that give great shade in the afternoons and all day if you are on the lake. 31 through 59 are out in the open. The area there on that side of the lake houses several more permanent campers with PVC sewer lines, etc. Pool and lake swimming facility are great at Island Resort. The lake is lovely and great for kayaking. Kids and adults alike enjoy riding bikes around the area. There is nothing real close to this park, but for campers looking for a quiet, away campground, with a day at Assateague as an option, this is a great option. We camped at Island Resort Family Campground & RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

Natural Beauty and Big Rig Friendly - a nice combination! We have stayed at this campground for numerous years; we think this is the nicest campground in the area. We enjoy the natural beauty, friendly owners and the peace and quiet (although we normally staying here off-season, we have found the campground enjoyable in-season). We visited many area campgrounds before initially deciding to stay at Island Resort Campground and continue to return to this campground, year-after-year. The owners recently added some additional RV sites, the spacing and levelness of these new sites shows that they understand their business and customers (i.e., their new pull-through sites can fit the largest of RVs [length and height] and are very level). We camped at Island Resort Family Campground & RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

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. We camped at Island Resort Family Campground & RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

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. We camped at Island Resort Family Campground & RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

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. We camped at Island Resort Family Campground & RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

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. We camped at Island Resort Family Campground & RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

The campground is close to Ocean City. However, we brought two dogs with us and dogs are not allowed on the beach. We went to Assateague National Seashore instead. Although the flies could get annoying on the beach, overall we really enjoyed ourselves there, as did the dogs, who got to swim in the ocean and "belly surf" to shore.

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. We camped at Island Resort Family Campground & RV Park in a Motorhome.

About 15-20 minute drive to Ocean City. If you're looking for crab off the boardwalk/main drag, we really enjoyed Crab Alley, just across the bay near inlet. Lots of locals.

Camped in a 35 foot 5th wheel. Site 94 is shaded, large, sand/grass, & level if rig is parked towards front of site. Spacious area for sitting. Trees are well trimmed. Site overlooks marsh & trees to rear, large grass areas to one side & in front, distant partial lake view. Sewer connection is in rear of site & requires 15 to 20 feet of sewer hose to reach from a center placed discharge rig opening when rig is parked in level spot. All sewers are in the rear of sites & many are a far reach. Good antenna TV reception. Laundry house is clean; $3.00 per load for wash & for dryer. Fairly large catch & release lake. Kayak rentals. Pond. Did not use pool, but looked clean. Pay to eat crab & beer dinner in pavilion one evening. Simple playground. Quiet & dark. Nice campground for adults only & families.

Ample security at the campground. Staff is personable and helpful. Be prepared to be blinded by the spotlight when coming into the grounds in the evening (only complaint). Trash is picked up throughout the day. No complaints. Definitely will be returning! We camped at Island Resort Family Campground & RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

Very nice, quiet campground. Some pull-through sites, mostly back-ins. Big, gravel and easy to access. The back-in sites back up to the lake, which is tree lined. Some shade, some sun. Small campground with ample space between sites. There are no activities for kids other then kayaking and the pool, but that meant mostly older campers and a quieter atmosphere. Go here to relax, not to party. Staff was very helpful. Trash pickup is twice a day, but I was them come by more often than that. We would stay here again.

Really clean park, nice and quiet. Pricey considering no cable or Wi-Fi, but we'd stay here again. It was less than some of the parks closer in to Ocean City. We stayed here to see Ocean City and Assateague, which were both great. Sites are huge, but this campground's residents are mostly weekender's that own their spots and mostly keep to themselves. We didn't use any of the facilities, but the general store, pool, office, and bathhouses all looked very new and clean. Sites are gravel, but well maintained. They come around and pick up your trash at your spot, very frequently. All the spots surround a nice little lake, very nice atmosphere.

We stayed here in late May. The campground was quiet and peaceful and the lake front lot was wonderful. There was not shade, which we were aware of when we booked. The restrooms were clean but a little weird in that the restroom and shower were the same room, so if someone took too long in one of the three women's restrooms or shower other people had to wait since they were not separate. The location was excellent for Ocean City and Assateague. The owners were nice. It was a little buggy, but that was to be expected in that area at the time of the year. We just would have liked wi-fi or TV hookup. My only complaint was the people with pets who can't follow the leash rules, but the owners handled it when reported. We will stay here again our next trip. We camped at Island Resort Family Campground & RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

This is a co-op park with some spaces for transients. This early in the season the pool wasn't open, and the store was closed when we checked in, so we can't comment on those things. We were told there was no wi-fi, which was a disappointment. The bathrooms and showers were clean, although somewhat worn. There is catch and release fishing in the lake, a playground, and you can rent a kayak for the day. Sites are large and level gravel. The grounds are nicely kept and it's apparent that work is ongoing to improve the park with the addition of more rental cabins. They offer deer hunting packages and guide services, so the park would be good for avid hunters and anglers. We had the park almost entirely to ourselves on a weekday night. It is a nice park but a bit expensive for the amenities available during our stay. We camped at Island Resort Family Campground & RV Park in a Motorhome.

What a nice place! Only open for six years and situated around two man made lakes. The owners show a well deserved pride at what they've created. Spacious sites around the lake, very good Wi-Fi at no extra cost. Everything just works as it should. Great staff with extras - trash pick up at your site for example. Started to stay for two days and extended the visit to five it was just to relaxing to leave. An easy drive to the resort city of Ocean City expect crowds on summer weekends.
