My brother-in-law and sister own a place in Trails End. We (my family) come down and stay with them quite a bit. The problem with Trails End the bath houses are sooooo nasty. Even the one as soon as you come in. Washer/dryers are nasty, the bathroom/shower itself are horrible. Toilets don't flush. Every bath house I have been into have rust on the doors inside, mirrors have film on them and the showers, oh, the showers. I wouldn't give my dog a bath in the showers. (The one where the marina was has been fixed up.) They need to spend some money in the bath houses instead of having bands every weekend and put the money in the bath houses. - 22786

We have owned in Trails End ever since it opened (1979-80ish give or take). At that point they were owned by Sea Side Properties and was not run by a board of directors. I have to say when Sea Side was in control the place was run much better because they had properties to sell so of course in their best interest it was ideal to keep its appearance well kept and tidy.
The good- you can find various lots for sale. Some are abandoned with decrepit rv's, sheds, etc on them, some have houses on them, some are empty lots that you can do what you want with from scratch. Lots are not overpriced in here, you do pay annual dues and water but you OWN the lot. There is no lot rent here. Here you can buy a lot at a tax auction for as low as 2k, put an rv on it and boom there you have it. A cheap piece of property you can utilize for the purpose of vacationing as little or as much as you want all year long.
The bad- in past years mosquito control was better but this year it was awful. I wish it was legal to utilize straight lime as that will kill most bugs but unfortunately it's bad for pets. The board of directors was extremely chinzy and cheap in regards to this so the mosquitos and biting flies made it unbearable to be outdoors a whole lot this year. The maintenance crew did a fairly good job on keeping the bath houses clean and I was even happy to see my bath house redone after 40 plus years. I was truly amazed and didn't see that coming but thank you b.o.d for taking care of this, I guess better late then never. Considering this year some board members are out (thank you dear sweet baby Jesus) I will hold a positive and optimistic outlook. - Laura Chirichella

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 have come here off and on for 15 years, and nothing has changed. The reservation and registration process is archaic. Reservations must be mailed in with a check for deposit. NO CREDIT CARDS are taken online or on site. The staff doesn't seem to know what sites are taken and which campers are where, probably because they rely on a handwritten index card system for registration. As well, the staff is rude and unhelpful: the only thing that actually has changed in 15 years.
We come back because it is the only campground we have found on Chincoteague with true waterfront sites. Otherwise, we would go elsewhere. Too close to the water for sewer. Bring honey wagon.
Bring cash or a checkbook. Credit cards are not accepted. - tiredsahm

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

Wonderful place to stay. We stayed 3 nights, Thu-Sat. Lots to do around the area. Staff was great. Sites were somewhat uneven and sewer connections seemed a bit higher than normal. Price also seemed a bit high for Sept time frame. All in all, a goof trip and we will return. - Joe G1

All and all, we were pleased with our week long stay. Some sites are tight, but ours was fine. Our biggest complaints: they desperately need to put up some sort of barrier to block the extremely bright and annoying McDonalds parking lot lights, could use some work on the road coming into the campground, and the kayak launch needs a ramp so that it's accessible at all tides, not just high tide. Staff was very pleasant, facilities were clean and new, location is fabulous (2.5 miles to downtown and 2 miles to the beach). We would recommend it and would hope to see the improvements suggested above! - Hugs

We stayed for 1 week in site 216. The sites are pretty typical for a KOA. There is no cable, but we were able to get over the air channels. The power worked well, but the water hookup was almost on the ground. The real issue was a huge puddle of sewage overflow under our hitch, tv and camper when we were hooking up to leave. The site next to us also had this issue. The staff are all extremely friendly. There are new office/event building, laundry rooms and bath houses that are very nice. Small dog park that my dog enjoyed. Kayak and paddle board rentals were nice.
There are alot of tent campers at this campground. A large number of campers had no problem walking through your campsite to get where they were going, which we have never really encountered before.
Again, I wish I could rate this higher, but not until the sewer problems are taken care of. - mahill526

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

Met family here and had adjacent "buddy" campsites. Large, concrete pad pull throughs near a new pool and snack bar facility. Beautiful facility. Park personnel were friendly, courteous, and helpful. Only downside were the mosquitos in the morning and evening. Campground personnel sprayed the area regularly trying to maintain control. Convenient to Chincoteaque and Wallops Island. - Underlog

Very nice clean friendly park. We had cable, wifi good at times but not consistent. The sites were roomy and we were by the newly constructed pool and recreation area which was very nice. Park is on the water so can launch a boat etc. A little out of the way but preferred to staying at Chincoteague Island for pony swim etc. - LJC

Nice, family oriented RV park! Easy check-in. You always get a personal escort to your site and a guide to help you park. Lots of activities to chose from. Well-stocked camp store. - beachcamper5

Some spots are extremely difficult maneuver without taking off a mirror or 2. Need bungie cord to keep power box closed since it opens sideways. Not great for bad weather storms to open the way it did. Unable to fit in the dump station, had to go over to Shad Landing. Someone needs to go thru there and take down trees that are right on the road to get around the campground. Not for larger vehicles....we were 34 ft 5th wheel, F350 long bed....definitely needs some tree removal done. Some tenting spots appeared to be right on the next persons spot. New shower house - AWESOME!!!! With a word of caution 2 showers per side, shower head angle sprays onto the dressing area floor. Nice area for tenters to wash dishes, playground convenient, easy launch area for kayaks, boat dock separate area - easy to manuever. Clean water spigot in wrong place to fill up trailer. Our spot, not all had a nice lantern holder with a place to cook on and a 2 level fire pit. - BRS-PA

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

We stayed in the Milburn Landing Nanticoke Loop (only loop on this side of the park), site #23. The site was very large, level, and heavily shaded by loblolly pines. Nice open-ish area to the side and behind the site, where we were able to hang our hammocks and clothesline. The pines provided great shade, but little privacy between sites. The campground itself was very pretty and well laid out, but most sites were a little too close together for my tastes. I really did enjoy our particular site, but it was a bit too far from the bath house for those traveling with little kids. Camping loop also has a partial view of the river, and is steps away from the Nassawango Pavilion and tire playground (which was great for us, because we were holding our family reunion in said pavilion). Bath house was large and extremely clean; renovated within the last year. Two large shower stalls; one was a handicapped stall with the detachable shower head, which was great for showering my toddler off. Water was nice and hot, and pressure was strong. I'm assuming they had well water, as i could feel the slight "sliminess" of a water softener. There was also a nice, large dishwashing sink on the outside. Nearby pavilion and tire playground were very clean and well-maintained, with a beautiful view of the Pocomoke River. Nice dock for fishing and boat launch. This seems to be the more "quiet" side of the park; if you're looking for more on-site activities and amenities, head over to Shad Landing. Overall, we really enjoyed this park, and the setting couldn't be more beautiful. If we were to return, we would probably camp on the Shad Landing side, as it has more amenities right there, and the campsites over there seemed more private and wooded than those at Milburn. - Jenventola

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

We spent 5 nights in this wonderful campground. We love state parks in general, but this one especially. It is located quite nicely near Ocean City but far enough away to be away from the madness. The shade was excellent. We only saw one tent site that had complete sun exposure. We witnessed several other campers arrive and saw that it is definitely very tight for people with larger travel trailers and motorhomes. The park is very welcoming to pets. We brought our kayaks with us and spent 2 days on the river. The boat launch was quite convenient and easy to launch from. We plan to travel here again next year, more than once. We felt very secure in the park. The Park Rangers made their presence known but were not intrusive but very friendly and accommodating. The Park Rangers were also very knowledgeable and willing to share information. The State Police patrolled at night. I would recommend this Park to anyone who is looking for a quiet place to stay and play. - Dozer's Mom

Small family owned park next to a major highway so you have a lot of traffic noise if outside. Sites were okay but close to each other. Do not come in here without a surge protector. Our electric surged above 130 volts for four days. The campground is trying to fix the issue but a word of warning. - Bamagolfer

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

We stayed 3 nights at Janes Island SP and had a very pleasant experience. Our sight was right on the river separating the mainland from the island, it was clean and flat. Note that water and sewer are not at the sites, only electricity, however, water faucets and restrooms are plentiful. There is a very nice marina with kayak & canoe rentals. The 'island' is essentially an uninhabited (by humans) marsh in the Chesapeake Bay. There are marked kayak trails throughout the island. We rented a tandem kayak and managed to get lost but eventually made it back. Fishing, crabbing, kayaking and canoeing are prime activities. The terrain is flat and the roads are bicycle friendly as well. There is a camp store and activity center with great activities for youngsters. - johnp271

This was our first state park experience We were pleasantly surprised. Campsite was easy to get into not too crowded. Restrooms were clean. Staff was friendly and helpful. It was off season but perfect for us. Enjoyed the trails and walking along the docks. Want to return and trying kayaking the water trails. - mrndly

Rate includes the booking fee. Nice park with nicely separated sites. typical pine forest seashore campground. Not friendly to really big rigs as roads are tight. we were OK with a 35' with tow but have to hit some corners just right to make it and ended up disconnecting part way in. All sites are back in. Bath house was in good shape. Water points were in the center of the loop and a bit inconvenient. Dump station is a tight fit for a big rig and we chose wait until the next park. Nature Center is great for kids and adults. Kayaking is a must here as the "land side" where the campground is just the tip of the park. Most is only accessible by boat and human powered versions are better than motors. Canal that separates the land side form the island side can be busy with boats and jet skis but not a bother. Green spotted flies were beastly. Season runs June-July and we were in the middle of it. They were well controlled in the campground but lay in wait for you when you tried to walk the roads or trails. DEET is a must. Once Green flies are done then apparently mosquitoes start up in Aug-Sep so come prepared. No bug issues out on the water. The town of Crisfield is a couple of minutes away and has all necessary services. - HR52
