This campground is about 6 miles off Route 13, down country roads. It is a reasonable drive to Chincoteague and Assateague Islands. The woman who waited on me at check-in and answered a few questions another time was not at all friendly and actually a little rude. The campground offers very little in the way of sightseeing information and brochures. Our site (500 row) was quite long and adequately spaced from the next site. Our site was littered with food and water balloons, and noticed other empty sites with garbage in the fire pits. A lot of golf carts traveling through the park. Many seasonal sites. The grassy, landscaped patio sites are mostly buddy sites with no shade. Although they advertise free Wi-Fi, it is actually only 30 minutes every 8 hours. Also, as others have stated, you can not get any local news or weather on the "cable TV". I guess if you want to keep up to date on the happenings in NYC, you are all set. Only the first half of the stations came in clear, the rest were fuzzy. I would probably try a different campground if returning to this are in the future. We camped at Tall Pines Harbor Campground in a Motorhome.

Rate is for no discount full hookup 30 amp. No cable. The staff was very friendly and helpful. We were led to our site and spotted while backing in. The sites aren't big, but certainly adequate with lots of seasonals. For the amount of campers, it was surprisingly quiet. Horrible Verizon cell phone reception. Campground Wi-Fi was limited to 30 minutes every 8 hours. Lots of golf carts but they all seemed to be quiet and slow enough. We'd stay here again if in the area.

Rate shown reflects a weekly rate. The park is very large and nicely maintained. The seasonal sites are congregated together. The sites are mostly pull thru and very long. Roads are gravel, sites are a mixture, some dirt, some gravel, some with a concrete pad. The one issue I see is that all the pull through sites are buddy sites, and if the park was full you would be very close and facing your neighbor. Since the sites are very long you would have to stagger the trailers to give you some privacy if you did not know your neighbor. It rained hard during our stay causing flooding at many sites. It made for a real mess of mud at many sites. Wi-Fi signal is strong, but the internet service is extremely slow - slower than dial-up at times. The handful of waterfront sites have very nice views and are well spaced which allows all to get a good view. Staff is very nice and helpful. We camped at Tall Pines Harbor Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

This is a beautiful campground with open or wooded sites. It has great activities and access to the Bay. The grounds were immaculately groomed, and the staff were extremely friendly and helpful. This campground is in close proximity to Chincoteague and Assateague Islands. Sites were spacious and level. They have paved pull-throughs and sites right on the bay. The only reason we didn't rate it a 10 was when it rained heavily the exit road was a lake until the next morning. Would highly recommend Tall Pines and definitely would stay here again.

We have camped at Tall Pines for a couple of years now. They are always making improvements to the campground. They have great activities planned for children and adults. The staff is always friendly and helpful. The management has good control on the security of the campground. Has a nice water view, paved and stoned roads, new store and spacious campsites. We will continue to camp here! We camped at Tall Pines Harbor Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Easy to get to and get into the park. The camp store/office looked brand new. Upon check in with the nice ladies at the office a gentleman escorted us to the site and got me lined up between the trees for my slideouts and awnings. The sites were level and long, 35 ft motorhome and I still had 20 feet to the front and 15-20 out the back. Nice looking campground. Ice and wood prices were very reasonable. We will definitely be coming back next summer. We camped at Tall Pines Harbor Campground in a Motorhome.

The only way I could review this campground was based solely on the service I received on the phone with their representative. You see, we never made it to the campground. On our way towing our travel trailer, the fuel pump went up on our truck leaving us stranded on the road about 90 miles away from the campground. We called to advise that we wouldn't be making our weekend stay and the representative offered to credit our deposit paid to a future date. We appreciated the fact that this was offered and will definitely visit this campground in the future. Thank you. We camped at Tall Pines Harbor Campground in a Travel Trailer.

This was our second stay at this campground and hopefully not our last. The owners are doing a good job of upgrading their already nice park. There is cable that is duplicated direct TV. There are local channels, but if a storm rolls in the signal goes out. Cell service is up to your phone and Wi-Fi needs a serious boost. They are building new bath houses and have plans to start their new water park area soon. I would give a ten except for price and Wi-Fi. They spray for mosquitoes but it does little good so bring gallons of spray (this is not a joke). We camped at Tall Pines Harbor Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Nice, helpful Staff. Note: GPS (Garmin) shows this campground is in Temperanceville, VA. Wi-Fi is a joke. When I asked, I was informed its best at 'white tent.' However that was also so weak we could not even view connect to internet. Only time you could get any signal (1 bar) or bandwidth was at 4am. Cable TV is actually replicated DirecTV. Note there are NO local stations, so you're not going to get local weather! But there are about 20 or so channels. Pets allowed but not really accommodated. They ask you to pick up after them (of course) but throughout the ENTIRE park there are 4 garbage cans. So it means your carrying a bag of waste back to your site. The arcade is 3 video games, 1 air hockey, 1 pool table. Two ponds on grounds. Ducks, geese, and a horse pen. Treed sites are very treed (in a good way) and pull through sites are 100% unshaded (but grassed). Note: we were unable to get any cell signal anywhere in the park (T-mobile). Pump service available to those on non-septic sites ($5.00). No recycling. Would give it 10 if there was real Wi-Fi and proper local stations. (In trees there is no way to get your own satellite signal or local antenna stations.) Quiet park: very clean and well maintained. Will stay again.

We just spent 5 nights at this campground and found it to be very nice. It is right on the Pokemoke Sound with a small beach, fishing pier and a brand spanking new camp store. The sites were large and good for large rigs. We didn't have any need to use the bathrooms but we did use the small but sufficient laundry. The downside for our trip was that we arrived in a terrible rainstorm and when the rain subsided the mosquitoes overtook the campground for days. All of the seasonals said this happens when it rains. Fortunately for them there was no rain all summer until we arrived. We would return but would definitely check with the mosquito police first.

We stayed 3 nights in the bay front 5 campsite. The site was a large and level site that you pull into. The campground has a wonderful camp store and amenities. There is a fishing pier and crabbing was a fun activity. There was a nice beach area for swimming. The site was not full hook up but the campground offers a pump out service right at your campsite. We had a wonderful stay and would return here again. We camped at Tall Pines Harbor Campground in a Motorhome.

We wanted to stay at the well known place down the road, but after reading the reviews decided to stay here for two nights instead. What a great choice! It was during the week, so it was as if we had the place to ourselves. Bathhouses were clean. Grounds were immaculate. After staying here we wished we had paid the extra money for a waterfront site (they are water and electric only but pump-out is available). The pool is very nice, but thought it was a bit small for a campground of this size. The owners of this place go out of their way to keep it nice. I was going to give them a 9, but one night a storm rolled through and the next day the owner was out cleaning all of the roads of fallen pine needles. We are definitely planning on going back.

The good; Good size beach, nice fishing/crabbing pier, a small and friendly campground. They have a scenic location, a nice store with decent supplies and nice staff. This park is clean and in a very good location. The so-so; Our site was a pull thru, but it was a bit awkward - very long and narrow. No cable, but if you have to, you can receive a couple of stations via antenna as long as you have a digital converter box. The bad; Wi-Fi was painfully slow. We gave up. All in all this place is a keeper. We've been camping in this area of Virginia for several years. We will happily return to Tall Pines. They are close to everything and have everything you need.

What a great campground. We received nothing but smiles when entering the office to register. The office/ camp store looks like a giant log cabin and is fully stocked. After paying for our weekend we were then escorted to our spot. The owner then checks to make sure everything works. The weekend we camped was Christmas in July. What great fun. The decorations were amazing. They also had a Kentucky Christmas gift swap. To funny and a good time. The bath roons were clean. The pool was clean. The park was spotless. The owners were true professionals. Kid friendly. Spots were large and spacious. Our spot also had a concrete pad. Nice. Would recommend to all. We will stay here again!
