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 brought our granddaughter here to see the Chincoteague ponies. It was after the pony swim, so the campground had lots of open spaces mid- week even though it was still summer vacay time. We printed out the online form and mailed it in ahead of time. Our site had water, electric and sewer and had a good view of the water. This was our second time camping here and we were once again pleased with the service and location. It isn't a "pretty" campground, but it is useable and well located. - ShoreXplorers

Was here for the pony swim. There was a mixup in our reservations but they were able to accommodate us. Of course the place is packed for the pony swim which is to be expected. Management is friendly and helpful. Sites are OK and not TOO close together. Would stay here again if we were in the area. - Rick & Gail

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

Very nice clean campground. Last time we stayed it was Maddox family campground. It has been updated greatly. We didn't use the bathhouses, but did look in them. They we're very nice, and clean. They always have activities planned. They have a water park which is not included, but available at a discounted rate. They only negative is the sites are tight, and close. The sites are just long enough for our trailer by itself. You have to park the tow vehicle next to the trailer. - AndyK

We really liked this KOA. First the staff was great. The grounds were clean, nice amount of shade. The dog park, while on the small side was clean. Nice camp store. Plenty of things for children. My only complaint (-1 star) is the tent campers walking through the sites to use the restrooms. They need to have dedicated cut throughs and make it clear at check in not to meander through other campers sites. The location can't be beat, and makes it worth the cost. The power was consistent. When we go back to Chincoteague we will be staying at the KOA. - SteveandAnn

The bathrooms needed to be cleaned more than once a day. There are A LOT of tenters, and the load on the bathrooms is too much. The only other complaint is that there needs to be a posted speed limit throughout the campground. People were driving entirely too fast for a campground. I even saw employees going very fast on the roads.
We were in site 9, I don't recommend this site. It is weirdly located across from a cut through path, so that we had a constant flow of people through our campsite, thinking that this was an extension of the path. We positioned golf carts and chairs so that maybe people would realize, to no avail. I am sure that this isn't isolated but probably happens all the time. The location is great: really close to the entry to National Seashore, and you can see the lighthouse from the campground. - blgoconnor

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

Very large and well groomed park, beach front sites are a little if-eee as being real beach fronts. Prime sites are real nice. One can park in the tall pines or open area(satellite friendly). Nice pool and kiddie area. The also have a horse riding arena , no stables. Definitely family orientated. Out of park amenities are not close. Closest bar and grill is 6 miles away - closed Monday and Tuesday. We would stay again in prime site. - bobbodean

We stayed at Tall Pines for four nights, arriving on Friday and departing on Tuesday. Our site was half in the pines and half in the sun, due only to the location of the pedestal. If we could have moved further into the shade I would have, but it was too far from the utilities and our awning would have been too close to the trees. I must say that there were some heavy rains during our stay, and our site was one of the few within the pines that didn't turn into a swamp. As flat as the campground is, the drainage must be a big issue since there was ponding water everywhere. Our first two nights were completely different from the last two. On Friday and Saturday the CG was completely booked, filled with people and children and golf carts and loud music, and adult beverages. But I must say that by 10 PM things quieted down. I think the vast majority of the people were there to hear some Bluegrass bands on Saturday night (except for us), and unfortunately our site was very close to the pavilion, but for some reason it never happened, so we didn't get to experience the event. When we returned on Sunday evening from a day of sightseeing and geocaching, I would guess that 40% of the sites were now empty, so the atmosphere was completely different than the first two nights. Fewer adults, children, noise, and the majority of the golf carts were now under covers at the seasonal sites. All-in-all this is a very nice, clean, large, well taken care of CG with very good utilities. Well, except for the Wi-Fi. On the last two nights, I walked to a vacant site near the Wi-Fi antenna and sat at the picnic table with the mosquitos so I had enough of a signal to check my email. The CG is a little out of the way, but for those with children and golf carts who like to stay at one place all summer, this would be it. - Love To Travel 2

Located near Snow Hill, Md, but close to Assateague, Ocean City, and Crisfield. This was a great spot. We stayed in the Acorn Loop (all electric) and enjoyed walking the trails. Since we were there during the week, we had the place all to ourselves - only two other campers that we saw in the whole park. The bath house has been recently refurbished and was very nice and clean. We stayed here in a 28' travel trailer and had plenty of room. Dump station is on the way out - a little tight for longer rigs. We will definitely be back. - Capt Gerry

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

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

DO NOT STAY HERE (unless you like SWAMPS)! This campground sits BELOW the roadway in what is a MARSHY SWAMP! I could see the drainage ditches from the road flowing through the campground! And since it sits right next to the highway - MAJOR ROAD NOISE! Each campsite is jammed up against each other. The restroom was so filthy and buzzing with mosquitoes, we had to leave and drive all night to the next campground in Virginia Beach! To top it off, when I complained to the owner, she said she could care less if I give a bad review. NO REFUND! Lastly my credit card was charged $55 for some unknown reason (instead of the advertised $40). I should have simply gotten a motel! AVOID LIKE THE PLAGUE! - David F

The road into the park is good as are the roads inside the park. Check in was fast and very friendly. They have some basic needs in their store. The park is well maintained. There is putt-putt golf, a pool, a lake with fishing and paddle boats, a small petting farm and chickens roam the grounds. We were in Site 8, a level pull through with full hook ups and no issues with any of them. It is average width with a picnic table. It was plenty long enough for our 37-foot Class A, tow-dolly and parking the car. There was no WiFi which is why it gets a 9 instead of 10 stars. Verizon signal was okay. There was some road noise but nothing terrible. We stayed June 4 - 7, 2018 and paid $36 a night with a military discount. - BarrettsHappyTrails

The staff here was nice, but seemed to be struggling with the season opening. The pool looked nice, but hadn't been filled yet. The mini-golf also looked nice, but was "under construction" and not open. Our site was a pull through. It wasn't bad, but if the sites on either side were occupied, it would have been way too close. We had no picnic table, and the concrete patio was small. No Cable or WiFi, but our Verizon MyFi worked fine. They just had a gate installed and were having trouble assigning cards for it. It's a bar across the drive, not security. There is no boundary fence around the property, including the sites that back up to the 4 lane highway. Highway noise all night. The bath house was filthy. There was no dog park. It appeared that most of the sites were seasonal, and not the cleanest nor newest RV's. Many have never been washed. The people we met were all nice, and mostly, the campground was quiet. With other campgrounds in the surrounding area, I highly doubt we'll come back. - DebDon

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
