We've tented camped here several times before. We just bought a camper and didn't want to travel far from home for our first trip with it. The campground is clean and relatively quiet. Our site, F-27, had plenty of room. Full hookups were great with no issues. A stay here includes activity passes for all four pools, putt-putt, and other activities. This campground is definitely family friendly. The only downside, as other reviewers have stated, is that the grass isn't cut in preparation for the weekend campers. We camped at Solomons Island Navy Recreation Area (Military Camping Only) in a Travel Trailer.

Stayed here the weekend following labor day. Cheaper rate was because it was considered "off season". Stayed in "G" loop. We were completely surrounded by retired military "full-timers". The grass was above ankle high. We had full hook-up but the location of the electric box/sewer pipe were such that I had to pull the trailer almost all the way to the road to hook up. Sights were extremely small, more of a trailer park feel than a campground. We noticed another loop that was on the other side of the campground that seemed to have more space. If we go back, we'll try and get a spot there. Didn't make use of the swimming pool, but it was still open limited hours over the weekend. There's a golf driving range, mini-golf course and outdoor table tennis/billiards/foosball table. The beach is fairly small and is located on the shore of the Patuxent River. There are several baseball fields and we saw several family gatherings/parties around them on Saturday. The restroom associated with our loop was deceiving large. Eight showers and just as many toilets. Dated, but very clean. Good water pressure in the showers. We camped at Solomons Island Navy Recreation Area (Military Camping Only) in a Travel Trailer.

We stayed here for Labor Day weekend. Pools (4) and the beach were great! They had a jelly-fish net up that was awesome. Miniature golf, 2 playgrounds, small arcade and so many more activities for our little ones. Our site didn't have sewer, so we used the bath-houses. They were kept very clean. The sites themselves were very roomy, although it would have been nice for them to have mowed the grass for the holiday weekend. Grass was about ankle length, which was a turn off. We were close to home and tempted to go get our own push-mower to do the job ourself. Overall a good time.

Have to put up with USN security, but that is understandable. 3 large swimming pools, boat ramp, swim beach, large marina - very level sites. Most sites were over 60 feet. Large grocery stores 3 miles south. Very interesting town just 1/3 mile to the southeast. We like camping here. 50A at all sites. We camped at Solomons Island Navy Recreation Area (Military Camping Only) in a Motorhome.

We stayed here for a few nights while visiting with friends in the area. We are not military, and our friends sponsored our stay at this facility. It was very nice...though off season so not full. The laundry facility was not the cleanest, and the washers were smaller than average meaning you needed to use more of them. The area was beautiful and so was the weather. Would definitely stay here again if we had the opportunity. We camped at Solomons Island Navy Recreation Area (Military Camping Only) in a Motorhome.

Very nice campground with lots of activities. We live about 5 miles from this fabulous place and camp here at least 2 to 3 times a year. Many previous posters talked about the "permanent" residents living here and all their "junk" accumulating around their campsites. YES, there are permanent campers here but they are no longer allowed to stay on one site for years at a time. After talking to one of the residents, they are now required to move to a different site every couple of months. I'm assuming this is an effort to cut down on some of the "junk" that might accumulate on their site and make it look run-down. I called and got a spot in the "F" area which is absolutely fantastic. Full-hookups and HUGE sites.. even has a concrete pad to park your camper and a concrete pad for the picnic table. I have stayed in the other side of the campground before and I do agree the "F" area is much better taken care of. They had a TON of planned activities, miniature golf, fishing pier, beach, 3 swimming pools with slides, arcade room, tennis courts. The list goes on and on. We will continue to visit this beautiful campground! We camped at Solomons Island Navy Recreation Area (Military Camping Only) in a Fifth Wheel.

Overall this was a gem of a find for military/government. NO traffic on the way there or home, and It is so close to

DC area (1 1/2 hrs). The pools with water slides was great. The beach was nice. Downside, no campfires and some jellyfish. But overall very clean and a great find. We camped at Solomons Island Navy Recreation Area (Military Camping Only) in a Motorhome.

I’d venture to say that 75% or more of the campers here were permanents/seasonals/regulars. The grass on many sites was not cut – saw lots of push mowers on live-ins’ sites so not sure if it’s regularly maintained or the responsibility of the camper. We were in a water/electric site which was quite wide but not very deep (no full hook ups available but these appeared to be much smaller - not as wide and just as shallow) Kids enjoyed the scheduled activities – there were 3 day. Mini golf was a lot of fun and you can borrow board games from the arcade. Pool area was OK – baby pool was closed each time we visited and I wasn’t comfortable with 2 toddlers in the larger pools but oldest son enjoyed the slides (you have to pass a swim test to use these). Beach area was nice – roped off area to keep out jellyfish. Dump station appeared to be clean but unlike any we’d used before – no fitting from hose to sewer connection – you just sit your hose in the open pit/hole – and that’s if you even use a hose which we saw some people did not – apparently this is OK here – ewwww!

There are still too many homesteaders here. We still could not get a full hookup site. I have been trying for 4 years to get a full hookup site for a weekend and still cannot. We camped at Solomons Island Navy Recreation Area (Military Camping Only) in a Fifth Wheel.

We were here for the campground's annual Halloween Festival. Our family had a great time with the haunted house, as well as other activities that were age-appropriate for 5 and under. The pool and swimming beach are closed for the season, but mini-golf and the driving range were still open. We look forward to coming back soon.

Someone mentioned earlier that many sites were occupied by what appeared to be "homesteaders" and that appeared to be the case for us, too. I spoke with management and found out that in the coming months stays will be limited in length. No more year round occupants save for the active duty military members stationed nearby. Very nice park but looks worn. Management told us that updating/changes were coming soon as soon as the long term campers were removed, thus allowing improvements to sites and facitilities We camped at Solomons Island Navy Recreation Area (Military Camping Only) in a Fifth Wheel.

This is one of our favorite campgrounds, minus the fact that campfires are not allowed on any RV sites due to propane. The bathrooms are clean, the RV sites are a good size depending on which loop you get. Some are tarred, while others are piled into a gravel road. Very easy to set up satellite, almost impossible to get WiFi from adjoining business since the rec center doesn't offer it. Possesses bungalows, apartments, houses, tent sites, and RV sites for rent. The three adult pools and kiddy pools are clean and large, while two have large slides. They have LOTS of activities, an H shaped huge fishing pier that sells baits and has a place to clean fish, an activity center with arcades and game check outs, a HUGE campground overall, a sand beach next to the pools. Park is overall quiet. Though it doesn't have a camp store, there is a 7-11, fast food, one gourmet and one regular grocery, recreation and ace hardware stores, bars and restaurants across the island at Solomons and any store you can think of over the bridge. Overall great place. We camped at Solomons Island Navy Recreation Area (Military Camping Only) in a Travel Trailer.

Small number of campsites available because of so many "permanent" campers. (We were told those campers parked on a yearly basis and were chosen by a lottery each year. I find that hard to believe because some of them looked like they hadn't moved in years, but nonetheless it was a nice campground.) The sites were nice and spacious with shade trees (or trees for the kids to climb) - unusual for most campgrounds. The pool complex wasn't open when we were there, but it looked VERY nice. They had mini golf and a couple of playgrounds, too. Bring your bike - none of the amenities were close to the campsites. Overall, we thought this was a clean and quiet campground.
