9 Parks near Scotland, Maryland
Aug 2016 - $35.00
This park has many things to do within its boundaries as well as historical sites.
Unfortunately, mosquitoes, poison ivy, deer flies, briars, and thorn vines are all around the camping sites. The park is in a low area and near bay waters. This lends it to swamp bugs. The camp host for this loop left the park before his hosting time was finished.
This loop does not have any public bath house or restrooms. This loop has full hookups so this may be why. Restrooms in other areas of the park we are familiar with, are nice. Those areas are still subject to the swampy environment.
Campsite 65 is gravel with timbers at the edges. 30 amp & (50 amp older style 'L' plug) amp service, water, and sewer. We had room to park tow dolly at back of site and place our 30' MH near the hookups.
This site had been recently used by someone who had disposed of egg shells, food bones, and crab shells in the vegetation around the edge of the campsite. Park personnel should have caught this on a departure site inspection and cleaned it up or had the camper clean it up. - B D HOWie

Park had all the camping activities we look for. Hiking, history, fishing, beach, beautiful scenery, water activities. BUT you had to drive to get from one area of park to other, very spread out. Nature center, museum, and lighthouse closed, no lifeguards on duty, surprised since we visited July weekday. Very few shaded sites where we were (Greenspoint Loop). Very quiet, we were one of only two occupied sites for three days.
Grass was very high in some spots, campsites had lots of poisin ivy around them. Might be a better park to visit in the fall. - grj

Price was average as weekends are higher and Golden Age Pass not honored starting Friday and two-night minimum on weekend! Sites are well spaced with many wooded and shaded. We had full hookups which worked well. Haul your own trash to central dumpster. Weekends are popular; we arrived Thursday evening and the camp was nearly empty. Many bring boats and fishing gear. Park is remote, mostly quiet, very pleasant but mosquito spray is probably needed. - TravelerRog

The only good thing about this park is that the sites are shaded (they also have a big field with lots of room for tents or campers, no shade, no hookups). The sites are small and poorly organized. We had a hard time getting our 27' rig into our assigned spot because the unit behind us had backed in too far and they were not around to move it. The staff is totally unconcerned with addressing any problems (in addition to the space issue, there was water spraying everywhere from the spigot). The office is about a half mile hike from the camp sites, and that is where the bathrooms, showers, and the WiFi are. The WiFi, when available, is so slow you would think it was dial-up. The bath/shower rooms are nice and clean, but 3 of the 4 rooms did not lock. We would not go back! - Capt.Deb

This place is a marina first, not a campground. They have a nice marina which has a restaurant and bar, swimming pool, picnic areas, and the bathhouse is located under the restaurant and includes laundry facilities. They also have a seasonal campground, which is not where you'll be if you're spending a few nights. The campground where they'll put you is called the "field" because it's just that, a field. I can't even call it a campground because this is the condition it was in: no access road, no marked off campsites, just a row of hookup boxes that you back into along a tree line on two sides of a big field. The field is unimproved - bumpy, swampy, and you have to drive over it to get to your site. There is no trash service or dumpster, you have to drive your trash to the marina. There is no bathhouse for the campground, you have to use the one at the marina, about a 1/4 mile away. There is no on-site manager, which means there is no one to enforce quiet hours. It's basically a free for all in a field. We had neighbors that pulled in at midnight - 4 diesel trucks with boats and 2 large campers/5gth wheels - who turned on outside food lights and played and drank - at 2am they were still up and their kids were running around, screaming. There was nothing anyone could do. We were booked for 2 nights but we packed up the next morning and checked out. I will never go back, and I would advise no one to use this place. They make no effort at all to provide any services for their campers. Very disappointing. - dstumps

This was the second time we have stayed this year. The first time was a check-it-out visit. The second time...we brought the boat with us. If you want a somewhere to fish and boat, this is the place. It is maybe a 15 minute trip in the boat to Point Lookout, so you have the river and the bay to choose from. The staff I ran across were very nice. Yes, you need to drive thru a field but the sites are back-ins towards trees, with shade in the evenings. There is a pond to fish right from the rear of the campsite. We plan on returning. - det62

We spent 3 nights there last week. Our impressions; The CG is hard to reach being at the end of a long series of narrow roads. Definitely out of the way and definitely very quiet at night. The "seasonal portion" of the CG has crushed stone roads and is in a forested area. Tightly packed in together (about 12 to 15 feet apart). I wouldn't want one of the sites but there were about 60 - 70 seasonals with semi-permanent hookups so someone must like it. The "transient" portion of the CG is an open field with water and electric hookups. Looks like an old baseball field that had a trench run up the side to plant the water and electric lines. The field is lumpy and uneven. The fire ring on our site and on the ones bordering us had burned out bottles and cans in them that were not touched in the 3 days we were there. The picnic tables were falling apart - at a guess, they were being recycled from the seasonal side. When we checked in at the office, we asked for a map of the CG. They don't have one! There are no restrooms or shower facilities! (Their website claims a "bathhouse" but we never found it.) When we left and used the dump station we found the sump covered by a scrap piece of planking and with no running water for cleanup. Quite frankly disappointing because with some work and attention this could be a much better CG. - Maine-iacs

Large park with a tremendous amount of permanent residents. Two loops in the A section with full hookups, B section has water/electric only, C and D are full hookups.
Staff is extremely nice as are the residents. The residents are contractors that come and go. Monthly rates are $550 plus electric.
There is a pool, playground, fishing pond (front of property), fishing lake (back of property), and some area trails.
All sites are back-in. - calewjohnson

This park has a majority of permanent residents that keep their sites filled with clutter and dirty rigs. This certainly detracts from the overall appearance of the park.
We have now traveled over 23,000 miles and stayed in many, many RV Campgrounds....and this is BY FAR, one of the most expensive parks we have stayed in with very little amenities. Sites were NOT level and were merely grass sites, not even gravel. They had had a great deal of rain the prior two weeks, thus making things soggy and our stabilizers sank into the dirt/grass. The park did not provide even so much as a picnic table at our site, in addition to very, very poor working Wi-Fi/Internet and no cable, which meant no T.V. (there were no local channels). When my husband asked one of the staff about cable, he sarcastically said that "We could call ComCast to come out and hook us up", not very realistic for people only staying two nights.
Lastly, no where was I told ahead of time when I made my reservation that I needed cash or a debit Card, so I was not prepared for this. When checking in, they THEN proceeded to charge me an additional 3% fee for using a Visa Card. And that was on top of an extremely high nightly fee.
Bathroom facilities were dirty, "old" and locked at 8:00 p.m. each night. We definitely will not ever return to this location, and I will be sure to pass this information on to all our friends who are full-timers. - Suzanne R.S.

Sites not occupied by long term campers, are mostly not level. Would not take reservations or assign site. Charges extra to use a credit card. No cable and absolutely no over the air reception. Only upside to this campground is the convenience to Pax River NAS. I will have to stay again, but not recommended. - SC RVer

Nasty! Pool was cloudy, cabin disgusting, multiple water leaks in cabin, sewer leak by cabin. Was suppose to have a free hay ride: never happened. Had a root beer float party (charged $2). Ice cream was gummy: it was in a large bucket that had thawed and frozen several times. After they gave it to you, then they said it was $2. This was in high season and there were only 2 or 3 other families at this dump. - Joanne62

We only stayed so I can show up to a test site very early in the AM, but was told it was a two night minimum for the cabins. It was chilly, about 40 degrees. Something made me ask upon check in if the cabins had heat and we were told no but they had portable heaters we could borrow. Since we stayed in a two room cabin, we requested a second heater and was told "We can't let you use two for free." So we opted out of the second one. We were handed our key and was told it isn't hard to find, so we continued down a very overgrown drive way to find the place was deserted. We were the only ones staying here that night. When we entered our cabin the floors were dirty, the mattress pads had hair on them, and the lighting was very poor. We took a trip to the restrooms to find strange holes in the walls, poop smeared in the toilet seat, the feminine hygiene container full and it smelled terrible. There was a swim diaper that was hanging out of the pail that smelled horrible. This was May and I am sure the pool hasn't been opened all season as the pool was empty. When I went to ask the man at the front desk, for soap in the bathrooms and to ask for them to be cleaned, he quickly said he just cleaned them. He returned to do a full cleaning of the bathroom and made it a point to tell us he filled the soap. We went to bed and got up early to an empty campsite again. NO ONE ELSE was here! When we returned from testing, I went to see the same front desk man about a table cloth. He went to the back of the store and said he had one left. It would be $2.75 with tax. I asked him to turn some lights on in the store to make me feel more comfortable. He had no lights on. He then asked me if I was taking an EMS instructor course. I thought that to be very odd since I only asked previously how far we were from the High School. After reading some of the reviews I wonder if he had actually been in our cabin while we were out, because I had left my study sheets on the bed. - Skygrl

The only thing good I can say about this park is that it is close to the point to catch the ferry to Tangier Island. The fee of $50/night was way too much for the condition of the campground, and this was off-season! The manager, owner, was semi-friendly. We had two friends coming to visit for 2-3 hours. I was flabbergasted when they wanted $7/person. I understand if they were staying overnight, but for a couple of hours!! I would not recommend this park to anyone. - vmi1962

This was the best campground we have stayed at in. The staff was very friendly. They have a wonderful beach, a pool with a cover and trails that I took my kids though to get them back to nature and away from the ps3 and the xbox. I wish everyone could spend just 3 days there and endure all that my family has. - sophias

During the summer there are ice-cream parties, concerts, pool parties, movies , mini golf and other activities for families. It is a short drive to the super market or drug store if you forget something. Solomon's Island is just down the street with a couple of museums, a nice boardwalk, and good restaurants.Many people chose to RV here because not only is it convenient to Solomon's Island but it is dog friendly. Although dogs are not allowed in the cabins or on the fishing pier or the main swimming beach, there are some nice nature trails and some beaches that you can access with your dogs. - car2ner

This campground is a disgrace to the military people. It is run down, overgrown bushes, trees and weeds on every site. The sites are uneven and many of the "residents" living here full time keep this facility looking like a run down mobile home park with multiple vehicles parked in their front yard. No one mows the sites so grass is growing underneath these dilapidated RVs that sit on long term sites. It's such a disgrace. The folks that run the facility have no clue what size vehicle fits in a site. We are 45 feet and we had to drive around looking for a place to park. They knew when we made reservations we were a large coach yet they placed us in a spot we couldn't get into because of overhanging, overgrown trees. There are three guards in a small shack guarding the facility! What waste and abuse of tax dollars. We had to work in the area and this facility was a couple miles from our job site without going over the bridge and driving another 14 miles to another park. What a disgrace. - Dsc

Huge facility, 3 pools, fishing, boating, marina. One of the nicest MWR parks we have ever seen. Fabulous value considering the lack of public camping in the vicinity. - The Ear Vinery

We stayed for 3 days. This is a bunch of campsites located inside the Belle Mount Winery. Entrance to the winery is a winding, one-lane road that barely fit our 40' MH. There were a lot of potholes and low tree branches. Check-in is in the tasting room of the winery. I called ahead for reservations the day before but we were instructed to call when we got there so someone could check us in. There is only one 50 amp site and it doesn't have water. The rest are 30 amp sites with full hookups. We had to hook up our fresh water hose to the next site. No one else was there so it wasn't a problem but you need a really long hose. If you need 50 amps with full hookups, it's best of call ahead and reserve that one spot. The sites are gravel and completely under pine trees. It was very difficult to level. Our back tires were almost off the ground. No wifi, no cable, no leash free dog park but there's a lot of woods to walk the dogs. There's a large pool and bath house but they were closed. There's also a lake for fishing. Owners are very nice and helpful but their main business is the winery, not the campground. The owner told us he wasn't going to make any more improvements to the campground because it wasn't his primary business. He also indicated that he's thinking about selling it. It is not really a "resort", it's a bunch of loosely marked parking spaces for campers inside a winery. The price is a little high but other campgrounds in the area were closed for the season so your choices are limited. If I had to be in the area again, this is fine for a short stay. - Flippitti

Sites are very poor shape and crowded. Roads leave a lot to be desired. The only nice thing about the Park was the employees were friendly and helpful. - KenWillson

We were very disappointed in this campground. It was not maintained at all. The staff was very rude to us. We found the campground doing an internet search and my husband called to make reservations. While making the reservations he asked about the canoe rentals which it shows on the website. They said yes that they had them. When we arrived he asked how we could rent a canoe and was told they had them but they were inoperable. There is no campstore. Trash was piled up during our entire stay. Not once did anyone come to pick it up. The showers were clean but their is no where to change or set your clothes and towels. There was no playground and the basketball hoop they had was in a grass field with very tall grass. We had no picnic table but did find one over by the bathouse and we carried it over to our site. It was in very poor shape. The pool was the only nice thing. It had 2 diving boards but only 1 worked. The kiddie pool was not filled. The horseflies were terrible. There were lifeguards on duty. This is not a place we would ever stay again after being treated rudely by the staff and the poor conditions of the campground. - chrisandmargie

We stayed at Belle Isle State Park over Memorial Day weekend. We snagged a spot at the last minute! The park itself is on the Rappahannock river but the campground is not. It is a small campground and the sites are basically off one loop. There are some long pull thrus, and the rest of the sites are back-in. All the sites have plenty of space and trees between sites so you have privacy. There is 30/50 amp electric and water. A dump is available as well. Even though the campground was full, it was pretty darn quiet. Most of the activities take place around the park which is huge. There is a small beach, playground and two places to put in boats. One for larger boats and one for smaller ones. It's a great place for bike riding, walking or jogging as the park roads are quiet. We would definitely stay here again. We stayed here in a motorhome. The rate listed is a little deceiving as we received a night free from a Virginia State Park rewards program. - Free

Stayed here Memorial Day weekend with several families. The campground is clean, sites are big and private- easy to get into for large campers and trailers, and the bath house is clean. There is lots to do here including picnicking, kayaking, canoeing, biking, boating, hiking, spending the day on the beach. There is a bathhouse at the beach/picnic area, but no shower or outside spigot for rinsing off sand. Although located in a rural area, there ome very cute towns closeby to visit. - rebcon

Very nice and flat park. Great for short bike rides and canoeing/kayaking. Sites are huge, bathrooms new/clean, nice store, and dump station is nice. Very laid back area and campground was quieter than other VA parks. Water views are awesome. You can rent kayaks and canoes as well as bikes. Cons: lots of bugs due to water proximity, visitor center is empty, not a big park, and not challenging hiking (could be a plus for some). - Marc Williams
