8 Parks near Stevensville, Maryland

This is a unique facility. The four sites are narrow, gravel, and fairly level. There is only electric (two with 30 amp and two with 50 amp service) and cable, no water or sewer. All this being said, it worked for us. RVs with slides on both sides would find the sites very tight. There was very good lighting. The members of the Lodge were extremely nice, and we were invited to dine with them. For $14 we had a wonderful meal, and were able to have wine for less than $3/glass. You need to time your arrival and departure carefully, because when Lodge members arrive, the parking lot is small, and cars will block egress to the sites. We would definitely return if in the area. If all sites were in use, it could get claustrophobic. - EdGuru

Prices have changed since previous review - 2015 new costs are $20 Elk member, $35 non. This is for electric only - or you can refill water by pulling up to front of building during times the place is closed. Closest dump is 10 miles away and is cost to sewer plant.
Other reviewer was right, get there early in the day to get your rig parked (4 sites, all back ins and the folks coming to the bar or meetings park on empty sites. Sites are really close - if you have opposing slides, you'll be inches to the next rig. And the landscaping between sites makes walking to the paved area difficult - and if it rains, it gets muddy quickly. Electric posts are at front edge of site, bring an extension cord if you plug in from the rear of your unit. Sites are right next to an outdoor bar and the horseshoe pits. They also hold turkey shoots on weekends so it gets rather noisy.
The plus to this location is proximity to Annapolis, just on the eastern side of the Bay Bridge. They have some picnic tables and a big fire ring near one site that's supposedly open to all campers. - yesmar

One of the nicer Elks Lodges - even open to non-members. Prices: $15 if member of this lodge, $20 if member of other Elks Lodge, $25 if non-member. Very nice people at lodge. There are 4 sites - 2 with 30-amp, 2 with 50-amp. Fresh water available at front of lodge to fill tanks. Sites are narrow, but plenty deep for the biggest of rigs. Try to come before 3pm when bar opens - if not, the lot may be difficult to maneuver to fill water and/or back into sites. We would stay here again. - campingandtravels.blogspot.com

Since my last visit the campground has become populated with permanent party personnel, making reservations difficult. Effectively half of the sites are occupied by long term occupants. It has become more of a housing area, rather than a FAMCAMP. - hw8200

I would expect that a campground associated with the US Naval Academy would be more up to date. This campground needs an upgrade to bring to the standard you find at USMA and USAFA. - hw8200

The campground is not in the Academy section of the Navy base. That makes it hard to find and difficult to get to. One has to drive through a residential area on a curvy road where there is a lack of signs pointing to the campground. That is one issue that makes it not big rig friendly. Another reason is that the interior campground road is gravel and hilly with some sharp turns. Most of the sites are concrete pads, but they are not long enough to provide plenty of space for a longer RV. I noticed just one pull through. Power is only 30 amp. There is no sewer. I did not use the dump station. The bath house is an older, heated, cinderblock building. It was clean, but adequate only to serve its purpose. The Wi-Fi signal is not generated from within the campground and is weak. There is nothing for the kids to do. A primitive area exists for tent use, but sites aren’t marked. Verizon 3G was fine. During another season, I suspect there would be little satellite signal reception because there a lot of trees. Over the air TV channels are plentiful. The campground is half full of permanents; most likely service members who are stationed there. It is a short drive to the full service commissary, Exchange, gas station, and golf course. Check in is at the MWR/gym facility that is several blocks past the campground. There are no convenient places to park an RV while you register. They honor the America the Beautiful card for a 50% discount and that is reflected in my rate. This is just an OK campground that is better suited for shorter rigs and those who want an inexpensive place to stage from while being a tourist. It won’t be on my return list. - RLM

We stayed here as an overnight stop on our way home. We called ahead for a rerservation. The campground was a bit of a drive off Rt. 301 and the office closed at 2 p.m. and there was no one to greet us. Our confirmation email had a site number so we pulled in. The campground is on the shore of Chesapeake Bay. Bayside sites were $15 more and not worth the extra money. There is no swimming pool. The only place to swim is in the bay. The beach was barely six feet wide and the bay was a rocky bottom. We waded in to cool down and that was it. Not sure we would use this campground again. - slay

This is a wonderful campground located right on Chesapeke Bay in a small sailing/boating resort town, Rock Hall. It has been beautifully landscaped and our site was spacious, overlooking the Bay. The owners and management were extremely friendly and helpful and gave us plenty of suggestions as to where to eat, shop etc. We would have stayed longer but they were booked full for the annual Pirate's Festival that the town hosts. I would call Bay Shores a destination resort campground as it is out of the way, but these are the types of campgrounds we enjoy the most. There is no pool, so I would not recommend this CG to families with kids who like to play in the pool. But, at the same time, if you want to recharge your batteries, this place is for you. We will definitely return here to stay for a week or two and we highly recommend Bay Shore Campground. - Gus the Fireant

I would have given a 10 rating if there were sewer hook ups and a pool. The people in the office and the full time campers were very friendly. The bathrooms were clean. The beach is very small and you do need to go down very steep stairs. We took our dog swimming in the area next to the boat ramp where there was another small beach. - jazzy820

We stayed the weekend after Labor Day. Temperature was in the 90's. Pool was already closed for the season. Boo.
Work campers really were busy working all day keeping things clean and repaired.
50 amp super sites were fine. Sites in the trees in the back would not accommodate a big rig. - Couch9748

Closest park in for visits to Annapolis and D.C. Have stayed here twice in past two years for that reason. This park is on bottom of my list of positive experiences with KOA parks. Staff was indifferent and otherwise pre-occupied. Large group of scouts tented, so staff could not keep ahead as pertains to cleaning restrooms. Did not pick up trash on site as other KOAs have done, no community building or evening activities. Their big plus is a bus ride into and out of D.C. Daily, for $13 each. I can settle for less campground service for the less stress of commuting into and out D.C. - Mike from Bama

The website says the pull-throughs are 60' - 70' long however ours barely held our 37' motorhome and we did not see any longer than 50'. Some of the deluxe sites had a concrete patio with wrought iron table and chairs along with extra seating, ours however, had a picnic table on a sloped small patch of grass. The sites are pretty close together and the "streets" to get into and out of the sites are very narrow. While we were there five nights we had two days with no water due to some issues they were having. The sewer hookup at our location was defective as the adapter couldn't screw into the connector and the office was aware of the issue - seems it was throughout the campground. The location is convenient to Annapolis and Baltimore as well as DC. - Tony Connie and Rusty

This is now an Adventure Bound RV Park and I thought they deserved a better review. The park is centrally located between Washington, D.C. and Annapolis, MD. It is a large park of pull through sites with full hookups for RV's, in addition there are cabins and tent sites and it appeared that they are trying to bring it back. There are quite a few full timers, but the travelers are in a different area. Sites are large and graveled, mostly level, with grass in between, picnic tables and fire rings. They have a lot of activities for kids, pool and dog run. Several laundry, bathroom and shower facilities as well as a store are on site. They could accommodate some of the largest rigs I've seen, but the trees can be a little close in some sites. Our cable went out, but I'm not sure that was their problem. Antennas work well there, trees might make it difficult for satellite in most sites. - Traveler Anne

If we hadn't paid this high rate, I might be more kind. But we had a huge generator running day and night within 50 feet and a second 200 feet away. The cable hookup was in the next site. The "free" Wi-Fi was a joke--it takes 3 minutes to open a traditional site. But they offer you a "speed-up" for $$. Their café had only half of the things we wanted to order. The lifeguard sat while a stranger rescued a toddler. C'mon folks -- live up to your billing! - sherwood

Dirty, dirty, dirty. Had to shower the dogs after every walk. More gravel in the coach than a pit. Was not told when checking in that the park did not have power, 12 hours later generators were running. They were kind enough to trim branches so we could leave. - LynnMc

We come to Tuckahoe often because its close to home and a nicely maintained small campground with lots of room between sites, paved roads, and enough activities to be busy but restful. This visit happened to be a rainy weekend but between showers we managed to hike the two loops. Sites are back in and a mix of level and sloped. Use the pictures on the reservation site to look for large trees that will limit overhang off the site. Some require a bit more engineering than others to level up but most with RVs seemed to be able to accommodate the terrain. Restrooms are cleaned daily and in good condition. Power was clean. Water points are on the loop road and accessible. Dump station easily accommodated our 35 footer with toad. Rangers patrol often and were quick to enforce the basic rules like keeping tents on sites and number of vehicles parking at each site. Great kayaking creek with tons of turtles basking in the sun (if its out). Great place for young kayakers. - HR52

Busy on weekends, deserted during the week. We stayed 4 nights while we visited Annapolis and surrounding area. A 45-minute drive into Annapolis was easy, crossing the Chesapeake Bay Bridge (toll). Our 38 ft. motor home and vehicle just fit in the site. Sites 28, 30, 31 and 33 seemed best to us for big rigs, lay out and location. Site was large and level, with good 30 A. electric. Well spaced with lots of privacy, and shade. Bath houses were typical state park bath houses, reasonably clean and mostly free of insects, and included dish washing facility. Good spot for kids with camp store and trails as well as lake. Great spot for bicycling. - MissMyGolden

We enjoyed our stay. The sites were nice enough, plenty of space between sites, lots of trees. The bathhouse sits in the center, there are several access paths but they weren't easy to find in the dark. The sites are electric only, our hook up was fine, however our friends site had problems. We would stay here again. We camped in a 5 th wheel. - SteveandAnn

-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

This is not an RV park. Instead, it is a mobile home park that happens to have three long-term RV sites nearby. Sites rent only on a monthly basis at $795/mo, including all utilities except cable and phone. You get a regular street address and USPS mailbox at the street. The sites are very bare bones, with gravel pads that are pretty level, picnic tables at two of the sites but no patios, full-hookups, and grass is mowed religiously by on-site caretaker who lives just two doors down and is a bit nosy. The sites sit right on Bull Neck Creek. This is a blessing and a curse. Great views of the water, fishing, and lots of waterfowl, but the area is prone to flooding, and the sites get boggy fast. We often find ourselves stepping out our door and into a puddle after a big rain. In the event of a tropical storm, hurricane, or unusually high tides you will have to evacuate. The driveway into the sites is not paved so gets rutty and muddy in snow and rain. If you aren't careful, your vehicle and rig can get stuck very easily. Septic tanks sometime back up, but maintained man will pump them for you. Electric, water, and cable supplies reliable. Very quiet park and neighborhood. We've been here nearly a year and have never seen a police car or ambulance in the area. We've also had no neighbors in the other two sites during that time. The mobile home park sits right between two county parks with fishing and boat ramps, so recreation is readily available. Property manager (who is located off site) is very friendly and helpful and will work to accommodate your needs. Pets are allowed ONLY on the RV sites, not in the mobile home park or in the stick-built homes nearby. Large, open field nearby where you can walk your pets. You are responsible for taking your garbage to the curb once a week and supplying your own garbage can. Raccoons and stray cats in the area, so you don't want to sit your trash out unprotected. Sites are about a block away from railroad tracks, and trains do come through in the wee hours. High tension power immediately adjacent to the sites. This said, these are the ONLY RV sites near Baltimore that allow pets, have full hookups, cable access, AND allow long-term residents. Lots of mobile home parks in the area do allow RVers, but most won't allow pets. If you plan to winter over in this park, know that you'll get to shovel the 100 feet or so to the street in the event of a blizzard (we had three this last winter). The county does plow the streets, and there is some car parking about a block up, so you can park your car or truck there in the event of snow. Carpenter ants are a problem here, and they will eat the wood in your RV, so be careful. We haven't yet found a good remedy for them except keeping the tree branches over our rig trimmed back. Mosquitoes are also fierce because of the nearby creek. I'd give the park a higher rating if the sites and driveway were paved, if the drainage were better, and if the monthly rate was a bit lower, but I suppose this is the cost of living right on a tributary of the Chesapeake and only 20 minutes from downtown Baltimore. - Mary Jo
