Stayed in Tulip Loop #72. No 50 amp service available, only 30 amp. Lots of biting flies. No golf carts allowed. You'll need a vehicle to get around, even to other camping loops. Our site was fairly level, all hard packed gravel and VERY large. We had plenty of room for our 38' motor home and tow vehicle. No TV reception, no cable and no WiFi. We had very marginal cell service. Nothing near the campground in the way of town, stores etc. And lastly, the campground is supposed to be haunted. It is the site of a Civil War prison camp. The lighthouse has very limited open houses, so we never got to see inside it. The road to the park is narrow for a large rig. - DebDon

I support the other positive comments. Overall Point Lookout is a very nice state park and is recommended. However, Maryland has a new reservation system and the staff seem to be still learning so check in is a little slow. More important you cannot check in before 3 pm, so if you arrive before 3 you must wait. Not "user friendly". - RobertW

Site was very level, with a nice long driveway. Right on the water, with beautiful views. Surrounded by tall marsh grass and a few pine trees, so it felt very private. Close proximity to the bathhouse. Seems like most other sites on the outside of the loop were similar (grassy setting backing to water or trees), while the sites inside of the loop were in an open, marshy field. All sites included a picnic table and fire ring with grill grate. Campground in general was very well-maintained, and saw the hosts mowing different grassy areas several times throughout our stay. Only negative was the amount of pollen that coated every surface within minutes (although I know this is a seasonal concern pretty much everywhere). We had to wipe down every single item multiple times. Bath house was very clean and well-maintained. Looks like host cleaned it several times a day. Only two shower stalls, but they were nice and roomy with fairly hot water. There was also a dishwashing nook in the bath house with nice double-sink, which is always a bonus. This park offers tons of activities and amenities, such as a huge fishing pier, camp store, canoe/kayak rental, lighthouse, historical sites, swimming beach, etc. Most of those were still closed for the season, which was fine. Still beautiful to look at, and we didn't have to fight the summer crowds. The park used to be a prison for Confederate soldiers, so lots of cool exhibits and memorials for history buffs. Again, the setting was very beautiful, but the bugs were killer. Luckily, there was a nice strong breeze blowing off the water during the vast majority of our stay. However, the second it stopped, the bugs descended on us. Mosquitoes, gnats, biting flies, you name it. If they were this bad in April, I can only imagine how awful they would be in the middle of summer. - Jenventola

Love this campground. A lot of permanent residents March through November. Some contractors yearly. Wonderful staff. Water and rental equipment for your stay. Child and pet friendly. Restaurant/Bar is open during the summer from Thursday through Sunday. Though we always call to make sure if we don't want to cook on arrival. Tons of repeat customers. Close enough to base but far enough to enjoy the great outdoors. Go crabbing fishing and all. Suggest everyone try this campground. - Custom camper

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

Bath rooms not clean. Booked for week, was told last night was free. Not true; change to discount only due the site I picked. No one was at resort, no one. The owner told me if I parked on another site I would be charged. Just laughed. Fishing sucked The only good thing was I work all day and did not have be here. These people are only here to collect money. No money goes back to upkeep. If you like seeing and walking on old cigarette butts, tall weeds, and a dirty pool, this is place for you. Don't make a mistake, stay away. - Bingham nn

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

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

This is on a military recreation center so you will have to have authorized access for this base. Overall the park and facilities are in good order. However, there are several long term campers that have spots that are in disrepair. The site around there camper has very tall grass, all of their belonging lying about and is generally an eye sore. I have been here several times and this has always been the case. I have no problem with long term camping, but make them keep their site presentable. The camper close to us was unoccupied except when they stopped by to feed the dogs that were living in it. If you find a spot away from these areas it is a nice place for a visit. There is a nice pool and a beach along the river, driving range, fishing pier (needs repair), and planned activities. - JFB1

We ended up at this park with friends of ours who had access as military. Roads are quite narrow, the site we had was hard to get our 41' 5th wheel in, and the craziest thing was the sewer connection was under the middle of the trailer!! as well I could not back in as the water and electrical was on the wrong side!! Grass was very long, looks like it hadn't been cut yet this year. Not impressed. - North America in 90 days

Large and crowded. Very spacious area for RV's however, many grouped tightly together. RV sights need personal attention. Each RV site needs to be inspected, cleaned and repaired. Opened electric power box to a hornets nest, literally, with many hornets not happy. Unruly and very rude fellow campers being obnoxiously loud until 2:00 a.m. Get phone number for security at check in to quell obnoxious fellow inconsiderate campers. WiFi signal only available at bath house and very weak there. Overpriced for a military RV campground. Not worth $41.00 per night. This campground has more potential than any site in VA/MD, only needs the right management to fix it. - Wacker

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

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

On of the nicest state campgrounds I have ever been to. The sites are large and roomy. Most are wooded and private with ample shade. They consisted of a large driveway, a picnic area with a table, light pole and fire ring, and pea gravel tent area. The bath house was clean and well maintained. Showers were spacious and had 2 3x5 rooms. One for changing and one was the shower. The changing room had a heater for colder months. There were laundry machines on site . The park it's self consisted a good number of hiking trails that we didn't have time to explore this trip. The park is laid out on a big cross with the camp store being at the center. To the left is the larger boat launch that is on Deep Creek. Straight ahead is the beach and picnic area on the Rappahannock River and to the right is the campground and the canoe launch/fishing pier on Mulberry Creek. There is also a canoe (or hike) in primitive campground that I didn't see. The camps store is small but has most necessities you might need. Staff were friendly and helpful. They have low cost ranger programs that are informative and fun. While fishing at the pier that had crabbing 101. All in all one of he better parks in the system. - Joe J

Cleanest State Park in VA we have been to. Smaller campground but very spacious and tree buffers between each site. Bathrooms were spotless, lots of trails and the kids were at the water all day. Very safe with lots to do. - CandKand2Dogs

From a State Park perspective this place is awesome. Lots of clearly marked trails to hike, beachfront access (we didn't find out this fact until we read the trail map on the last night). From a campers perspective this place is perfect. The road in out and around the campground was WIDE, clean and clearly marked. The campground was immaculate, the bathhouses and showers were clean, the camping spots were WIDE and level. The campground host was super friendly and helpful to everyone in the campground. The sites were not full hook-up only electricity and water. There were lots of clearly marked trails. - ETCTA
