Reiterating what others have stated: approach from the west and you're OK; approach from the east and beware the 11 foot bridge (and we saw NO warning signs!!); 30 amp only; entry road is indeed steep, but not really a problem unless your vehicle is underpowered; a few sites looked like they would require more care to get into with larger rigs. Other tidbits we learned: sites are pretty widely spaced and thus quite private; very wooded which makes it a nice 10 degrees cooler, but forget about satellite anywhere; the potable water is in one spot and the dump is in another and both are on the inside "electric" loop; you must use their wood, but they have plenty; you have to make a 90 degree turn to exit, which isn't a big deal unless there are cars queued up at the entrance like when we left --- we had to thread the needle; when leaving the park the entrance ramp on to Hwy 40 is very short, so you'll have to wait for a gap and/or floor it. As others have stated, this is a great state park to get away from it all with a classic feel and hiking trails, pavillions, ranger programs and the quiet of the woods at night. We didn't explore the trails or woods as we used this as a base for exploring Baltimore, so we went into the city every day. Our site was 429, the last on the electric loop, which is very long and has the added advantage that you can go the wrong way on the one way road for about 20 yards and pull right into your driveway without having to go all the way around the loop when returning to camp. - darwinmoore

Good for what it was - a reasonable state park very close to Baltimore. We stayed here while visiting my daughter who lives in the city. Easy access into Baltimore. Most sites are spacious and look easy to get into. Rest rooms were dirty and didn't appear to be cleaned during our stay. Our site was very difficult to get into, though the campground hosts were familiar with it and spent a half hour with us helping us jockey our rig back and forth to get in. We made a list of sites we will use next time, which does NOT include 427 - avoid that site if you have anything other than a small trailer or class B camper. - DaveAndJoyce

The registration area is away from the camping area and if arriving from the East is hard to access due to a 11 foot underpass restriction. RV sites use the inner loop which has 30 amp power but no water. Sites are about 30 feet apart. Residential housing is visible behind the campsites but we did not have noise problems. Only one place to take on fresh water or dump waste but we did not have to wait. Overall functional but not scenic. - rudyhehn

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

We stayed here with our Stockade group. There are only two large open field sites available. We stayed at site 1 which is closest to the bathrooms. There is a water spigot near the restrooms but there are no shower facilities. Each site has a fire ring, picnic tables, and a nice new BBQ and a large wooden cooking type area built next to it. It even has hooks for your lantern. The rangers were nice and came out to check on us a few times and the park is great. The disk golf course and hiking trails were a big hit. We would stay here again. - Cfamily

Pretty big park with over 200 spaces. Very diverse --- if you want secluded in the woods, they've got that. If you want wide open spaces (like us, for satellite), they've got that, too. Our site was one of several long pull-throughs terraced onto a big tree-less hill --- all the sites were flat, gravel, and very long (could have parked 2 trailers and tow vehicles). Internal roads are a bit narrow at points, so you may get some leaf brushing, and there are lots of roads so you need to pay attention to the map. They had a large pool which we didn't use, and a nice setup for nightly movies (good sound!) --- we watched Elvis in Blue Hawaii one evening (but they had modern stuff, too)l. As others have stated, they do seem to have a ridiculous amount of rules. They charge for every "visitor", even if you have a dog walker or pizza delivery person come in. The park has potential, but they need to lighten up a bit; they definitely can't tolerate coloring outside the lines. - darwinmoore

The park was clean and quiet. We are from Florida and have traveled for 3 summers. We have covered almost every state. This is the first camp site we had to pay extra to have a visitor, and more to use the pool. Everything for the kids seemed to be closed. - veniceburd

This was our first and last time camping at Merry Meadows. We were very excited to camp here because of all the amenities listed and beautiful atmosphere. The first day we arrived (Monday) the pool and mini golf were closed. The second day we stopped in and spoke with the guy working at the snack shack, which is where you show your pool pass and purchase the mini golf. We wanted to make sure it was open, etc. We changed into swimsuits and 10 minutes later were told they were closing the pool, mini golf and snack shack early because not a lot of people have been so far (pool hours are 12-8 pm). We went at 3 pm. The arcade was also closed. The front office and store closed at 1:00 pm.
We were unable to use the amenities we would have liked to use and why we chose Merry Meadows. We also have young children and found out that they also are not allowed to use floaties in the pool which is absurd. I understand not allowing rafts, etc., but not allowing floaties or life jackets for children who can't swim is cruel and ridiculous. You could not pay me to camp here again. It was a waste of our money. - Murphy14

The sites in the campground are somewhat tight together. And there is not a lot of room for fire rings or kids to play. He site needs to have some maintenance overall with the grounds, the parking areas, and the roadways are very broken up. At one time I think the campground was very nice but you can tell that it has fallen into disrepair over the last several years as they have not put any money into maintaining the grounds or the utilities at the campground. The pool area appeared to be nice but we did not use it . There are several private residences in the middle of the campground which is somewhat odd and generates a lot of coming and going traffic. Do not follow GPS directions to the campground or it will take you on some dead and residential roads that do not connect to the campground I recommend looking at aerial photos of Google maps before you navigate to the campground. The road way back to the campground is very tight through residential neighborhood. The campground staff in the office was very nice and helpful. - Lspajm

This is an older park, celebrating their 55th anniversary, but it is very well kept! We asked for a waterfront site, but there were very few that would accommodate our 37 foot rig and truck. The sites are pretty tight too, like they've been in such demand (and I can see why with the location) that they've built a site everywhere possible. The site we ended up on really had an obstructed view, but we were happy enough after a huge event! There was a tree there behind the site next to us that a duck kept parading around! Low and behold the next day I discover a hole in the trunk that is down about 3 feet! Inside the trunk? her ducklings!! I went and told the fantastic staff and they came right down to see about it and brought a stool and a fishing net to 'fish' them out.. We were grateful to see Mama and her ducklings swim off!! We had a good bit of rain and chilly temperatures, so we didn't try out the pool or any other water activities, but we really enjoyed sitting out and reading with a wonderful breeze!! - the burtons

I have stayed here numerous times and Bar Harbor RV Park never disappoints! From the friendly staff to the clean restrooms to the beautiful sunsets on the Bush River teaming with ducks and blue heron, you'll find yourself relaxing in no time! - Valerie1954

We stayed for 10 days and got weekly rate for first week, then daily. We wanted to stay longer, but they are booked in advance on weekends for Halloween activities. Location is excellent for visiting family, so we want to come back for a month next fall, but they won't take the reservation more than a month in advance, in case they have the opportunity to rent the space long-term. We get the impression that they are trying to transition into a trailer park instead of a campground, and that they don't really want campers like us but will take us if there is a vacant space. Very disappointing, as there is nothing else available in this immediate area. We like it here and would definitely come back, but it's hard to plan when they won't take our reservation. I rated Ramblin' Pines as 7 for this reason; otherwise, I would have rated it as 10. - SheriRS

Stayed 17 days, received weekly rate. Campground got a lot of business on the weekends and activities are planned. The camp staff was very friendly and helpful. The roads a little winded off the exit but navigable. Taking Hwy 97 off I 70 allows you to make a left turn into a lieu of taking Hwy 94. - bkboren

I struggled where to give my rating. Based on a few things I have given a 6 due to 1. they put us on 1X (don't take this site!), it is right beside the entrance and office and the busiest place in the park; there were I'm sure other sites they could've given, we were right beside the park host (really not sure why, this is an rv park with an office), their site should be 1x! 2. they have an entrance gate with a wooden bar that swings up, it is only activated by a staff member who sits in a cart a 100 yards ahead by the office; so if he's gone potty? you don't get in!! stupid system. And $62 per night is way too much for this park. The roads inside are easy to drive if you get a site further in. Hookups were good but no cable on this site, a staff member had to split off from a site behind us. All sites are gravel and fairly wide. - North America in 90 days

Very nice park with lots of elbow room. We were in #24 which is on a corner. The nearest RV to us was at least 50 to 75 feet away. The park is clean and they make everyone adhere to the rules (no parking on grass, no junk around, etc) which makes for a pleasing appearance. There was no wifi out where we were, electric was stable, water pressure was fine, and Verizon signal was 4G with 1 and 2 bars (not real strong). There are paved roads and concrete pads with gravel patios. Each patio has a fire pit and picnic table. The commissary and exchange were very nice. Here's our 2 complaints: First are the gates. The gates at the entrance and exit of the park are a pain. If you're on a military base where you are carded before entry, why do you need the gates? Second is Wifi/Hotspot. I called Verizon because my hotspot was worse than dial-up slow and normally it has very good speed. I was told that because of the area (between DC and Baltimore) the tower congestion is such that at certain times of the day it slows down to a crawl. That being the case, the park should have wifi repeaters. All in all we really enjoyed our stay at Camp Meade. - jomark

We've been here a month with a couple more weeks to go. This is a very nice park. Spacious lots, very nice laundry and shower building with a couple break room/library/game areas. Lots of trees but probably ? to ½ of sites are possible for satellite reception. Overall very quiet, except for the base special of reveille at 0630 over the base loudspeakers. Earplugs are useless to counteract, but we got used to it. Better than train whistles or traffic noise. They don't do it on the weekends.
They don't have wifi or cable, though I understand they're working on that right now.
Only downside is there's been a bit of musical spots. Their reservation software doesn't optimize the spots to minimize moves, so we moved twice in a week, but spent almost a month in the current spot. Seemed like it could be minimized since it was mostly people already there moving around. When we extended, the person we dealt with in the office made it so we didn't have to move again, but the experience/interest level of the staff varies.
This is certainly the best value in the DC area. We will be back in the spring for sure.
Rate based on monthly rate. - Seb

Very nice campground. Sites are big with plenty of space between them. I like the fact the grass gets mowed regularly. Good option for the DC area. We would do so again. - rwarner22

Clean park, excellent facilities. The hookups were really nice, with exception that the sewer was about 8 inches off the ground, which made downward flow impossible, even with our hose support. The base has check-in down to a science, with a combo to unlock your utilities. Plan ahead--washing clothes requires a laundry card. You have to go to MWR to purchase a card (which they round to the nearest dollar, so you lose .50 depending on the number of loads you want). You then turn in your card before you leave, or incur a fee. Sites are nice and level. We had deer walk through our site a couple of times. Nice location. We would stay here again. - RVerFamily

Shore Park Campground. New RV park on APG. Park appears less than 1 year old. All sites (about 30) have Water, Sewer and 20/30/50AMP electric service. Walking distance to small fishing area down a small hill. Pad site is level concrete. Interior roads at campground are asphalt, and easy to navigate. Road was a one-way road, but park was not crowded, so it wasn't a problem. - usamacdonald2

This review is for the new Shore Park Travel Camp that opened in June 2016.
There are 24 back-in sites and 5 cabins (cabins are not open at this time) on the campground site. Some sites will only accommodate RV's up to 30'. Most sites look fairly easy to get level on, but there are a few that a big rig might find difficult. The layout is a little "hinky" - depending on which site you have you could be backing in on your "bad/blind" side.
Right now it is pretty exposed but a large number of trees have been planted between and behind sites. Frankly, there may be some issues in the future with the placement of these. Even with the current openness we were not able to get a signal for our satellite at all due to the large trees on one side of the park. FYI - we use a tripod mounted dish that allows us to pretty much place it wherever. There was another Class A that pulled in on our side and soon moved to another site because they couldn't get a signal with their roof-mounted dish. They do not want ANYTHING placed on the grass areas without written permission.
Since everything is brand new and there haven't been a number of people there, the bathhouse is in excellent condition with the exception of some bad starters on the lights. Didn't use the laundry but 2 washers and 2 dryers may not make it going forward.
Sites are all concrete and the road is blacktop helping to keep things cleaner. The sewer connection is raised about 9" off the ground. No cable or wifi. We did not have an issue with service on either our Verizon Jetpack or T-Mobile phone hotspot.
Pet owners: APG is an active testing base so you do hear the blasting/gunfire - usually in the mornings. Not deafening but it can shake your rig if the gun is big enough. - hdchickinfl
