Very nice well maintained TT park. Large spacious flat sites. Shady with lots of trees. Wi-Fi is super here. Best of all the TT parks I've stayed at. TV is a problem if you don't have a satellite dish. If you have trouble getting any stations, rotate your antenna 180 degrees and re-scan. Putting the mast on the opposite side of the trailer helped, but still only can get one major station. Got 14 other public TV stations. All in all though, it's not a deal breaker. Nice views if you want river front, or lake front. Huge Olympic size pool for summer. - diamondg

We stayed here as a member of C2C. We felt uncomfortable here. There are mostly permanents and most of the trailers are rundown. We only saw a few traveling type RVs in the park. There were security forces patrolling (which is good). However, one of them mentioned to us that there has been a lot of theft by residents. The hookups are not good. The electric and water are on the passenger side way to the front of the lot; the sewer is on the driver way to the back. We just did not have enough extensions on the sewer to connect to that. We have no idea what the planners of the park had in mind when they designed this park. The streets are not paved and there is lots of dust. There is a nice large picnic table. The security guard said they have the second largest pool in the county and we verify that it was huge. We booked this park so we could explore the Assateague/Chincoteague area. We hope to be gone all day so we won't have to look at the dismal surroundings. - Kay Pihl

We camped here using Coast to Coast. Sites were back-in and they need some work to trim away branches. They don't look like they have been worked on. You have to work to get level. It was quiet and the staff is very friendly. It is a membership park and most spots are seasonal. Nice short drive to Chincoteague. Not a destination spot but it's ok for a night or two. - revolution1

OK park in tourist area. Charged me a $15.00 early check inn fee. At 1:00 PM for a 2:00 PM check in. I complained at registration and was told: "You're Lucky It wasn't $25.00."
Interior non paved roads very rough. Heavy rain caused me to wade in 1 foot of standing water to pack up. - bucko

This is a campground not an rv park. Sites are wide and angled so you are not looking in another coach. Lots of trees and our site was level. Water pressure is good. Plus on this park is its distance to Chincoteague National Wildlife Refuge and beach. Wifi was good on our site. - beach walker

Arrived during a monsoon rain storm, lots of flooding. However, the staff was more then accommodating during our arrival. Checked in and had no issue parking on our assigned site. As anyone who has stayed at Chincoteague knows it can be buggy, but right after a rain storm they swarmed so setup was done as quickly as possible. There is a good amount of seasonal sites on the property. The store had a lot of typical camping stuff, was disappointed that there was no campground specific merchandise (shirts, coozies, etc). We like to collect things from the various campgrounds we visit. Location could not be better on the island as it close to all of the local attractions. Was very cool to see the Assateague Lighthouse light scanning the night sky from your campsite. Would visit Maddox Campground again in the future. - SJEAGLES609

Quiet. Good value. Wooded. Nice view of marsh grasses. Free hot showers. This campground needs a complete overhaul. The Wildlife Park doubles as a dump for trash and construction debris. It was disgusting. They sprayed for mosquitoes during dinner, exposing my family to chemicals. The free Wi-Fi doesn't work well at all. The paid Wi-Fi is $3/day. - tdrager

Plain wooded campground. Lots of seasonals but good services. Didn't use the pool but it looked usable Not very big to walk around in. Many people ate at the fish place next door. Wasn't really all that exciting to us. The families looked like they enjoyed. The office staff were not the nicest but OK. Would not go there again and really didn't like the area so even more reason not to go - FrancisandRenee

A nice campground located near the Asseteague Preserve so you can see the wild ponies. The management had information on a boat trip and that was fun although we did not see ponies. We had a level campsite. It seems that many of the rigs are here permanently but it does not cause a problem. It is quiet and well maintained. They provide cable. Before the government shutdown we did drive in the Preserve and it was fun being on the Atlantic Ocean. We would stay here again and recommend it to others. - rolling homeless

This huge campground is located right on Assateague Channel, we had a clear view of the lighthouse and saw ponies grazing across the channel. Many campsites have a view of the water. The actual waterfront sites are only water/electric. There are full hook-up sites just across the road from many of them. The park only takes cash/checks. They do not accept reservations by phone. For advanced reservations, you print out a form from their website and mail it in with a check. Even then, you can not reserve a specific site. We called at the last minute and they said they had plenty of room for drive-ins, and they did. We drove in and chose our site, and then told the folks in the office where we were. We were among 4 campers in our section during the week, and 20 more joined us on the weekend. The section we were in could accommodate 60 or 70. Your utilities may be on the "other" side depending on what site you are in, so bring long hoses, etc. The firewood was reasonably price, and dry and easy to burn. Bring a fire ring if you have one, it you don't campers have built rings out of bricks and blocks. We 'borrowed' ours from an unoccupied site. It is a lovely park with friendly and helpful staff. We definitely plan to return here. - ShoreXplorers

Campground looks a little rough when you first drive in as there are a lot of run-down full time sites. Staff was helpful and allowed me to choose the site we wanted. there was a lot of rain prior to our arrival and the sites were a little muddy. Our site was across from the fishing pier and there was no one in front so we had great views of the water and lighthouse. - Our rv journey

This large park has good facilities. The spacious grass sites were a bit muddy after heavy rains. The amount paid is with no discounts; only cash or checks are accepted. The above price is with tax and seemed high for offseason. Reservations are made only by going to the web site, printing out a form and mailing it with a $40 check, but staff will tell you how full it is expected to be by phone. Permanent and seasonals are separated from the short-timers. Wi-Fi was faultless but the short-time part of the park had only a few customers. Camp store is very well stocked. Fishing permitted off the park's dock. Some days the wild ponies can be seen with binoculars from the dock. - Mtmoi

This is a Maryland State Park, we camped in the Shad Landing area. The sites are large, they were clean. The bath house is typical for MD parks, cobwebs, kind of dirty, serviced maybe once a day, you get what you pay for. Thirty amp power was good. No water or sewer, plenty of locations to fill your water tank along the loop, only one dump station which was tight to get into. The park itself was very nice, great kayaking, ride bikes, etc. There is a large swimming pool, however we did not use it. This park is nicely located between Chincoteague and Assateague National Parks, both are awesome. We camped in a 5th wheel. - SteveandAnn

Another great long weekend here at the Shad Landing (Acorn Loop) side of the park. We stayed in site 24 (I would also stay in site 7 in the future), this site provides lots of privacy and a nature trail that exits from right from the camp site. 30/20 Amp electric only with multiple water spigots around the loop. The bath house is centrally located to each loop so not a far walk if you need to use it. Small camp store with ice and firewood are available. Kayak rentals for paddling along the beautiful Pocomoke River. This is the pet friendly loop so keep that in mind if you do or do not have dogs. Also make reservations, we were here in mid October and every site was reserved for the weekend. Good amount of hiking /walking within the park. Snow Hill is very close but lacks a larger grocery store. A 8 mile drive to Pocomoke City or Salisbury is less then 30 min away. If they also had water hookups this would be a 10. - bug512

Large sites, very private. Nice little store\office friendly people. Typical Maryland State park. Electronically c hook up but not water. Have to run on fresh water tank in trailer. Very nice boat and kayak launch area. The water trail was terrific. Lots of birds including several kinds of herons, hacks many turtles. Decent fishing, caught several large mouth bass. - doghouse traveler

Milburn Landing is a nice little part of Pocomoke State Park. Showers and restrooms are new and were cleaned daily. Brand new wash sink for dishes with garbage disposal. Rangers drive through a couple times of day, but campground is self registration when you arrive. Some sites with electric, but water is not at sites. There are a few spickets throughout the campground, but plan on filling holding tank on way in. There is a spicket by dumpsters. There is a boat ramp near by and also a location to put in kayaks and canoes. Playground and pavilions are located in area. Pool is located in the Shad Landing area. Cell phone use was fine, never tried over the air tv. Firewood is for sale at office for $5. Stores are located on RT13 about 15 minute ride. Will definitely be back. - acenorm

This state park is in a beautiful setting next to the Pocomoke River. Four of the sites are small cabins that have a bed, a bunk bed and a table and chairs. The sites are quite level and the area is heavily wooded. DirecTV reception was not possible from our site. Cell phone service is good. A free launch ramp for boats is nearby. There are a couple of playgrounds for kids, plus a pavilion which can be reserved for large group activities. - Wye River Rat

Very pleasant place to visit. Its a little off the beaten path but thats what makes it so special to us. it's also very close to home and allows pets. All in all a nice place to camp. - FREEDOMRULES3

Pay attention when someone tells you this is a party campground. We stayed here the weekend prior to Halloween and it is a noisy, busy, party place. If you enjoy a nice quiet camping experience this is NOT it.
The campground was actually closed (Nobody in or out) for an hour while there was trick or treating.
If I had it to do over again I would NOT stay here again. If you are looking for a party though, by all means this is your campground.
You can share space (awning to awning) with your neighbors playing loud music with a definite bass beat.
There is a picnic table right next to your neighbor, etc.
The lady was nice when we checked in and greeted us as soon as she put the rest of her cooking in her mouth and proceeded to tell us about her plans for the next two evenings.
After a long drive and just looking for a nice place to relax and enjoy Chincoteague this is not the place to go.
The wifi was TERRIBLE. We rely on it to make reservations and it was slow and kicked us off several times during a reservation confirmation. Verizon coverage is good. - Maraywil

Tall Pines Harbor Campground is a beautiful campground and the staff were very friendly and helpful. We given an escort to our site upon arrival. Staff also came by during a severe weather alert to notify campers of the impending storm (very good customer service). Although the campground is a little off the beaten path, this campground is very nice and has all the amenities one could ever want at a campground (pool, ocean, basketball, horseshoes, etc...). There are many different type of sites. Shaded, open, tent, ocean front, etc... This campground is able to accommodate all sorts of campers (big rig, trailers, tenters etc...) We had a 30 amp site that was nestled among the tall pine trees. The site had a leveled cement pad with full hook up. The pedestal had sufficient electricity, water pressure, and the sewer was positioned in the middle of the site and easy to get to. Wifi worked well and we were able to get several over the air channels. We would return to this campground if we were in the area. - clw_man

If you like a party this campground is for you. The campground itself is nice, there is always some activity going on. Too many golf carts going up and down the roads and you can tell some of the drivers are either drunk or have an alcoholic beverage in their hand. Most of the people are nice, some seem cliquish. - Caddy073

We stayed here September 24 - October 12 (working in the area). I will say this review would probably be very different had we been there during a warmer time. Having said that, we arrived on the day after their 'summer season' ended, so there were no amenities available that most rave about - the mini golf, kayaking, pool, movie nights, etc. The family that owns the place was very nice, although it was difficult to pin them down for real office hours, which was frustrating after I asked if I could have mail shipped there, but no one was there to accept the packages (twice, but once I flagged the UPS guy down). The site had a wooden deck that was in serious need of repair, a fire pit, and a very nice picnic table. Complete tree shade, so no satellite reception, no cable and 4 channels over the air cable. The laundry room had plenty of washers, less dryers ($1.75 wash/$1.50 dry). Besides everything seeming a little tired looking, I only have two complaints - the sewer - I hooked up to dump and immediately had a sewer fly infestation - yuck. And the water was horrible - it wasn't clear, it was yellowish and the water pressure was just above a trickle. For an overnight, we might stop if it was convenient, but not a place I'd plan a trip to. - DaBlairs

This was a stop on our 17 state journey, so just stayed one night.
Level, woody, which means no grass, so mostly gravel/dirt, spacing is pretty close. This is much larger than it appears, has a back section, by the newer cabins, which was nice for a little bike ride.
Bathroom/shower nice, and clean. Good laundry facility.
We like to stay on water, or at least have a view of the water. We could see the "lake" from our site and walk to it in about 30 seconds. Lots of things for kids to do. Nice pool. Good location for the small towns on the Eastern Shores of Virginia. Right off the main road. - 48 State Goal

Stayed here for two nights, fri and sat. Bathhouse was clean,sites looked great. Cell service was excellent (Verizon). Had a family movie night which played on the door of their service garage. Store and pool greatly updated, new deck on pool and very distinct landscaping looked excellent. Had a deck over the pond which was great to sit on under their umbrellas. Mini golf a bit dated, but well kept. Paddle boats a blast, especially with the night lighted fountain. A great place to just enjoy with the family and kids, no pressure to do anything but relax. Close to a Walmart and ruby Tuesday's. Staff was courteous and helpful and very friendly. Lot of permanent sites, but everything looked well maintained. Curious recycling area, but at least they are trying. Highly recommend for an actual relaxing campground me stay. - DeuceNiner

Love, love, love this campground. It's quiet and we love the fact that you back your camper up to a man-made lake. All the sites are spacious and the owners and employees are very friendly. Can't wait to go back next year. - Caddy073

Great looking park quiet because it was after schools started so we had our pick of sites. The only thing wrong with this park is that they had two shower and bath houses with just one shower and toilet. If someone was showering or going to the bathroom you would have to wait. The sbath house was about 10 x 15 and quite nice but only one in each location. I would never stay there if it was prime camping time. They seem to assume that everyone showers in their camper. The A/C did not work in the bath house and they had no intention of fixing it and the outside light to the bath houses were disconnected because as they put it Bugs. The bathroom toilet outside of it was never cleaned so do they clean it? A little pricey for what you get. - snoopy216

The park is an amazing experience. The beaches are super... It's important to note if you haven't been here that there are no hook ups ! Generators are used heavily. We used ours and many people used theirs. There are generator free loops available. I can't say generator usage bothered us and given the hot weather we experienced while there I don't blame anyone for using one. They must be shut down at 10 PM and may resume at 6 AM. The park is very large and it's easy to find seclusion and quiet areas. There is a visitors center prior to entering the park. (This is not the check in office). Also, there is a second park within the large park operated by the State of Maryland. They have a similar campground too and both the federal park and the state park basically share the same roads and beaches. You will see the wild horses and experience nature... bring your bikes! - Jim and Ben

We stayed on the bay side, expecting to be eaten alive by the infamous mosquitos. Actually, it wasn't bad. There were bugs but a liberal application of OFF! seems to hold them at bay.
The site we had was A6, in the generator loop. We only ran our genset for battery charging and coffee and microwave use. Be aware that the NPS does NOT enforce the noisy generator rule (can't be over 60 decibels at 55' from campsite or something to that effect), there was a guy clear on the far side of the campground with one of those cheap construction type generators that ran it ALL DAY LONG, until 10pm. It was very loud and distracting.
The site was more or less level and asphalt paved. It backed up to the tree line which was nice.
"Wild" horses cruise throughout the campground at will. They like to hang out around the bath house for some reason.
We did not use the cold water showers or the pit toilet bathrooms.
All in all we enjoyed our 4 night stay, the beach is wonderful. You can rent kayaks bayside or sign up for a kayak tour.
I would have given this a 10 star rating if the rangers or camp host had enforced the generator noise rule.
Price reflects 50% NPS Senior Pass rate. - baraff

We had a beautiful site with excess to the bay side for swimming & kayaking. Interior roads and sites that we noticed were asphalt. All sites are dry. Bathhouses very clean but only cold running water for showers. Pit toilets only. Horses & deer make frequent visits. Park rangers make routine patrols. Campground & park great for biking and kayaking. Bayside campsites has more small tree growth which offer some shade. Good signal on our Verizon. Would certainly return again or recommend this place to anyone. - mdcamping
