the electric is very outdated. we lost electric each day and were told to turn off the ac units to save the boxes. the sites are not marked and there is not water and electric to each site you must share with others and if you do not have enough cords oh well. there is no camp store and the costs jump up after 2 persons and yo have other fees as well on arrival. we were disappointed in the depth of the water 3 - 5 feet only and the docks were always taken and there is no safe area for the kids to play oe swim. if you are looking - pass this one up!! - mountainbreeze

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

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

-Personal beach area
-Good power and water
-Nice warm water
-Boat and paddle board rental on site
-2 security gates
-Coincidentally spot 16 needs maintenance but we were given boards and assistance to get settled into the site
My family absolutely loved this campground! This was our first time staying at a public operated campground so some things took some getting used to. We were so pleased with the campground we are contemplating getting a seasonal site next year. We've been all the way to the Keys and haven't had as good of an experience as we had here.... - On_my_whey

Great beach front camping on the Chesapeake Bay. Campsites are very sandy (this is a beach remember) and have good 50 Amp power and water at each site. No sewer or dump station, just a honey wagon service twice a week. The weekends are very busy here as the location is so great.
Each campsite has a campfire ring on the beach behind the campsite. A great place to have a beach campfire. Swim, wade, boat right from the beach behind the campsite. The campsites are packed full on weekends as is the nearby day-use area. During the week it is much less crowded. There is a pretty big marina right next door also.
The sites are nice and long but fairly narrow. The beach area behind the campsites is a nice large shared use area for campers only. It is a nice sized beach that provides lots of room for the campers to spread out on right behind your campsite.
Reservations are by telephone only. This is a County Park run by Calvert County, Maryland. - eb145

We loved it here. Will definitely come again. We were right on the beach. We were provided boards to park on, but didn't need them. Our grandchildren had a blast here, and we enjoyed the wonderful view of the water right from our kitchen window. The bathrooms and showers were not the best, but we really didn't need them. The pump-out service was great. We didn't have to do anything. Great place for a family. - sharivas

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

We have been searching for a spot near Cambridge, MD and found this "mom and pop" campground on the internet. They do not have a website but the following web address gives an aerial photograph: http://marinas.com/view/marina/5080_Madison_Bay_Campground_%26_Marina_MD_United_States There are about 8 transient sites which are situated in the right side of the photograph near the marina slips. The remainder of the sites are seasonal. There is no shade and water/electric sites only, but the dump out station is easily accessible and certainly adequate. We did not use the bath houses or laundry so cannot comment. There is an excellent small restaurant and bar on site with local crab and seafood dishes as well as steaks, hamburgers and sandwich items, open for lunch and dinner. Call ahead for a reservation at the campground. When you arrive, go to the R&R Restaurant and one of the very friendly bartenders or wait staff will direct you to a site. This is a simple campground with a nice water view. We were there for the Eagleman half triathlon in nearby Cambridge, enjoyed our visit, and plan to return. - M&M

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

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 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

Nice, small, and quiet campground. The sites are well-shaded and trees separate the sites, providing some privacy. My motorhome is less than 25', so I have no problems maneuvering into any of the sites; however, some larger than 35' might have issues, as not all sites can accommodate large rigs. Some sites have electric, none have water, but water spigots are placed generously throughout the campground. There are also fire rings and picnic tables on the sites.
The bathhouse is clean and has showers.
There are trails for walking and horseback riding and a lake for fresh water fishing.
I camp at Cedarville when I need a break and don't want to travel far from home. - DestinyBoundRV

Point lost for site selection method. Only a few sites suitable for longer rigs but no attempt by park to assign rigs to size appropriate sites. A class B or tent can fit into any site. A larger rig can only fit into larger sites. No issue for us since we were off weekend & at end of season. There was a teardrop trailer in an extra long site nearby. Had a 40' rig come in the park would have lost the revenue since the teardrop had the only site suitable for a big rig. Feels very remote & quiet. Only noise is distant Andrews AFB air traffic. - Veebyes

This campground is very nice with lots of trails, a lake, and an equestrian loop. Sites are spacious and shaded. Very close to DC. We would camp here again. - rebcon
