Since no one has reviewed this campground since it became a KOA, take the past reviews with a grain of salt. This park is experiencing growing pains at this point in time. The old sites seem ok, but the "premium" sites with a "view of the lighthouse" are not quite as advertised. They all face the wrong way. Instead of a view of the lighthouse, we had a view of the porches on the row of cabins. For the first time since we started traveling, I asked to move to another site. The staff accommodated me right away and we're happy. They are re-wiring and re-plumbing the entire park. There are no cable outlets yet, but it looks like the cable is run. Power, water pressure and WiFi are all working, although when we both went on the WiFi it did degrade. Another couple couldn't find their sewer tap, and the consensus was that it was buried in the dirt somewhere. They had to re-hook and move to another site. This park is a work in progress. As with most KOAs, it's overpriced for what you get. We camped at Chincoteague Island KOA (formerly Maddox Family Campground) in a Motorhome.

Perfect location, excellent staff, clean grounds. Entire location will undergo a brand new renovation this November to be unveiled in May of 2017, barring delays. We camped at Chincoteague Island KOA (formerly Maddox Family Campground) in a Motorhome.

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. We camped at Chincoteague Island KOA (formerly Maddox Family Campground) in a Travel Trailer.

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. We camped at Chincoteague Island KOA (formerly Maddox Family Campground) in a Motorhome.

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.

Very nice campground. No problem from making reservations to check in. Office staff was very friendly. Park was very clean; trash pickup four times a day. Quiet at night. Close to National Park . We camped at Chincoteague Island KOA (formerly Maddox Family Campground) in a Motorhome.

This is an older campground close to the national seashore. The website states that there is cable hook ups, but it is only at the seasonal sites, no Wi-Fi. Our site was fairly level pull through in the G section. Staff was friendly in the office and trash is picked up a couple times a day. The facilities were old, but clean. This seems to be the case with all the campgrounds on Chincoteague. The bug guy comes to spray nightly. I would probably try to stay elsewhere if in the area again.

Great location. Quiet just the way we like it. Staff very friendly. Bathrooms could be cleaner, but that-s hard to do when some of the campers make the mess soon after they are cleaned. Would like to see sewer hook-ups for J row. Skip the cable. Overall very nice place. Been there every year for the last 6 years and will be there for many more I hope. We camped at Chincoteague Island KOA (formerly Maddox Family Campground) in a Fifth Wheel.

Over one hundred seasonals which made the campground feel more like a trailer park. Didn't seem as though any of the other campgrounds on the island were any better though. The people were very nice and helpful. Didn't like the fact that the campground was over run by cats though. We camped at Chincoteague Island KOA (formerly Maddox Family Campground) in a Motorhome.

Maddox Campground is exactly that A Campground. It is unpretentious, reasonably clean and quiet. It is not a destination campground. For those who need to be entertained and pampered this is not the campground for you. We stayed there from 7/24/2010 - 8/7/2010 The pool is small but usable, store is OK Laundry facilities are adequate and operational. Game room, not really a game room. Sites are reasonably sized however those with large rigs with slide outs and an add a room that also require an additional parking spot and a place for a screened in pavilion and a spot for the kids’ tent, one site will be a bit tight. Many nice shaded spots for both RV’s and tent campers but there are quite a few non-shaded area too (which are generally filled with the Johnny-come-lately's). The restroom/bathhouse facilities are not fancy, they were cleaned once daily while I was there. No bears or raccoons but there are gulls that are just as bad and much noisier. Don’t leave your trash out unless you want to wake up at 4:30 am, trash is picked up twice daily. There were lots of people with pets (dogs), we left the dog at grandma’s because dogs are not allowed on Assateague, they did not charge me for the parakeet who does not mind being left alone for the day in the motorhome. Chincoteague Island Mosquito man visits daily in the evenings but still bring lots of bug spray or bug clothes. This year was a dry year so mosquitoes were not much of an issue. We had one really big rainstorm. It deluged for a good hour straight. The staff kindly warned the tent campers that they would get flooded (puddled) out and they did. Power flickered for about a minute, I was very surprised that there was no problem with sewage back up; talking to the permanent site holders they said that is usually not an issue unless they get more than 3 or 4 days worth of straight heavy rain. They do not allow unlicensed vehicles in the campground so if you rent one of those scooter things you can’t bring it into the campground. But you really won’t need them anyway, bring your bikes. Big plus, Maddox is close to everything. We spent two weeks there and we went everywhere by bike. Chincoteague Island vacationer friendly and touristy type stores and restaurants just head left up Maddox Blvd. The beaches on Assateague are easily reached by bike. The pace was set by my 8 year old son on a 16” bike, I followed with my mountain bike and child-trailer full of beach gear. The unguarded beach is a leisurely 15 minute pedal on a flat paved path through the refuge. The guarded beach at the end of Assateague is about twice as far about 30 min with about 1/3 of it on the busy beach access road. I was nervous about my son traveling on but we made it there several times without incident. We liked Maddox camp ground.

This park is built on a swamp marsh. The mosquitoes will eat you alive. We were unable to sit outside without covering in Deet spray. We literally had to run from our car to our motorhome when site seeing. There are not many transient sites available during the pony swim and they make you pay for 4 days in advance. We were put in the tent section with a "weak" 30 amp service. I don't know why anyone would want a permanent site at this park. The only reason we stayed here was because the more popular Toms Cove park was booked. We camped at Chincoteague Island KOA (formerly Maddox Family Campground) in a Motorhome.

Bath houses were closed. Lots of messy looking seasonals in the front of the campground. Roadways were narrow. You can drive though but it is difficult to pull out of the pull through due to the decks that the seasonals put in. Ground is grass and sandy dirt. Not a bad location but it is just a place to stay to go to the National Refuge not a destination park. I find it hard to believe people would seek to have a seasonal site. Also drove through Toms Cove and it is similar though the sites were shorter. We camped at Chincoteague Island KOA (formerly Maddox Family Campground) in a Motorhome.

My wife and I have visited this park for the past four years. The staff is friendly, and unobtrusive. We find the park a good place for a late summer getaway. The spacious sites were clean with picnic tables, fire rings and convenient full hookups. At night the rotating beam of light from the nearby Assasteague Island Lighthouse is something to see. We typically visit during the week before Labor Day and find the park very quiet since most folks with children are either back home with the kids in their first week of school or preparing for the start of school. Chincoteague remains a quaint town and the park provides a good base from which to visit the local shops, rent a small boat and fish the many tidal creeks and sounds or to spend time across the channel at Assateague National Seashore. Mosquitos are a challenge but this should be expected since you are on a barrier island surrounded by massive amounts of tidal marshes. The rest rooms are old but the staff makes a consistent effort to keep them clean. The park is on a prime site for condominium development so each year we hear rumors of an impending change. We will continue to return as long as the park is there. We camped at Chincoteague Island KOA (formerly Maddox Family Campground) in a Fifth Wheel.
