Many improvements since our last stay. All the power poles have been fixed/upgraded, bath house refurbished and the picnic shelter and bathhouse re-painted. Still no lights in the picnic shelter. Best of all, wifi is now available in the campground. Main building is currently being remodeled, so the restaurant was closed. The plan is for it to be replaced by a small store and cafe. Hot tub building was condemned and is not currently on a schedule to be replaced. - Impkitti

I suspect I'm the only person on this web-site that goes here... The refurbishment of the RV park is complete. There is power and water at every site. The bathroom remodel is done, as it the picnic shelter The remodel of the rest of the facility is in process. Currently the bar is open (with limited food) but the store and cafe are closed for remodel. The main building is also getting a clean-up, including new floors. This remodel should be completed by late spring. However NAVFAC as condemned the Gym and it's replacement/rebuild date is unknown. So the hot-tub, exercise machines, etc are unavailable at this time. - wetterwashington

The "No Power" is temporary, on about 1 Oct the transformer that feeds the RV-park, bathrooms and laundry failed. NAVFAC is considering this a "non-critical repair" and repairs may not be done until early 2015. This power-failure means the facility is only charging half-price until power is restored. But they are taking advantage of this and are also replacing all rusted/faulty/broken power pools in the RV section. The RV area bathrooms and laundry have been repaired. The tent area bathrooms are functioning normally. The recreation buildings have seen some work and are now in good shape (these are shared with the tent camp, rental cottages and hotel). Since my last review (2 years ago) this park has seen improvements, and I would expect power to be restored by spring. - wetterwashington

Nice level back-in spot on the river. Sites are a little closer than we prefer, but not bad at all. We were here on Labor Day Weekend, so it was packed.
(The $1 nightly rate was actually $0, but this site won't accept $0) - The Mangonel

This is one of the very few west coast state parks that is really and truly on the beach overlooking the Pacific Ocean, so it is a great value for the price. There are electric hookups on some sites, but no water or sewer hookups, but the dump and fill station is very close. Sites and roads are paved with grass between sites and in fairly good condition. It is a fairly small state park compared to a lot of others and is minimally manned, but the location and ocean view makes up for all of that. (There was a camp host but he had a sign out the entire three days that we were here that he was not on duty.) This is one of the deepest and flattest beaches I have seen on either coast--you could get worn out just getting to the surf! There is a small river that many of the sites overlook as well. But the best part of the constant wind makes for fantastic kite and windsock flying, which my grandkids really enjoyed. Decent Verizon service, but no AT&T. - judy_online

Very scenic and close to beach. We were lucky enough to get a back on spot overlooking ocean and river. Easy access to beach. Sights are faily close together but still a nice place. Will stay there again. - Tony74

We were booked to stay two nights and ended up bailing out and losing 1 day's fees, including the extra $15 charged to add a tent to our RV spot. Customer service was poor. The weather was overcast and gloomy, not what we had in mind for a mid-August beach vacation. The campground itself was somewhat of a desert, with dirt ground, few if any trees, and cramped, with RVs stacked side by side with little space in between. I'd never go back. - Lewis C

Large park with full hook ups, only 30 amp service, cable TV for $2 day. Gravel roads with wide level gravel pads with grass and a table. Short walk to the beach. No trees so good satellite and cell phone signal. The wi-fi is extra $1 per day thru an outside service and not good. No pool or spa. Club house with a TV, pool tables and games. Only restrooms and showers located close to the entrance of the park. Staff friendly and helpful. Small, clean laundry. Park well maintained. We would stay there again. Cost is for a Sunrise member $0. They accept ROD, RPI, C2C. - Pepper Dan

This resort is not exactly "on the beach" but in reality it was close enough for us. It was a short walk and you hit sand. The sites are roomy and in a wide-open area. Clubhouse was big with several mixed-use rooms, laundry room, and couple off bathrooms,with adult area upstairs (no children under 18 allowed). It all seemed a little "tired", the upstairs furniture worn and kind of thrown together. Lots of signs announcing what was not allowed and what you should be doing or not! but no one enforcing stupid rules or making you feel unwelcome. Manager was friendly and was around a lot taking care of things. Wi-fi an issue: it wasn't advertised on the web site or campground booklet so I assumed it wasn't available. I saw on the 2nd day that it was advertised on the main sign at the front; I called to get the password but it was after 4pm so I left a message....still no return call even though we left at 11 the next day (office opened up at 9). Women's showers closed for painting but he said I could use the men's...which turned out not to be an issue. Showers were the old cement kind, were probably cleaner than they looked! We would stay again if we were in the area, sound of the surf was just what we needed - Carol P

We aren't RV resort people. We want level sites in a safe, quiet park at a fair price and The Dunes more than met that. Are there RV's here that are the poster children for the corrosive effects of ocean front living? You betcha! Driving around and looking at many of the other RV parks in the area, most of them also had a few rough RV's in them. There is a small, tight knit little community that lives here at The Dunes year round. From what we could see, they were a combination of working poor and disabled but they were all pleasant and friendly. They all seem to look after each other and ride share to shop, dine and for doctors. We should all be so lucky to have people we can count on when the chips are down. The manager was friendly and went out her way to make sure we were happy here. Anyway, what we got for our $15 a night (Passport America rate) was an RV site with 66 cable channels that was off the road and quiet, with gorgeous sunsets out our front door. The bath house had older showers but they were quite clean with plenty of hot water. We also slept like babies with our windows open and the wonderful sound of the surf. There are also some tent sites that I would have enjoyed back in my tent-camping youth. I've paid a lot more for a lot worse. I'll happily come back to The Dunes again next time we visit Ocean Shores. - Travelfish

The utilities worked and it had good wi-fi, we didn't try the cable. The park is in disrepair but, the shower area looks newer. The full time RV's rigs are pretty trashed! Okay for the PA rate of $15.00 don't think I world recommend this place or ever stay again!!! - Gracii

First the positive: the staff are very friendly. There is a fast Internet and good cable TV. It is extremely quiet, you can hear only the sea rushing. You go 15 minutes to the sea. With Passport America, the price 15 dollars per night. Morning and evening, deer come to visit. There is a large playing field and a children's playground. Negative: the campground needs upkeep. There are mobile homes and small houses that are long past their prime. There is only 30 amp power available. The sites are made of grass and gravel, somewhat unlevel. Nevertheless, we like to come back, because the location is very good and the price OK. - usa

Tidelands is nicely located away from noisy towns and public areas. Tenters may fare okay here however, our RV experience was awful. 'Bob' put us into a site that was muddy, had no shade, had dog excrement everywhere, and I was unable to reach the power box on the right side of the site(left side hook-up is the industry standard). He moved us to a site 3 feet from the neighbors and we shared a power box. There is only one 30 amp and one 20 amp plug in each box, and I couldn't even run the reefer without tripping the 20 amp. We moved again. Bob was visibly annoyed with me. I walked the dog and realized there was another whole loop to the park that had large lots, big trees and lots of privacy. There was no one there, and they were not offered to me. The beach is just beyond the dunes but can only be accessed by wading across a canal. The old footbridge lies rotting in the weeds nearby. The whole place is in disrepair. The bathhouse was filthy and reeked of urine. Only one of two showers was in working order and there was visible mold and mildew on the walls. We showered in the rig. We cut our trip short and left the next day. - Let'sGoCamping

A great find. The owner keeps this park open as a courtesy to her old customers, who go back 50 years. I doubt that she takes credit cards. Sites are in an open grass area, with shrubs and trees surrounding it on three sides. On the ocean side, it's a 10 minute walk to a huge empty beach, using a home-made foot bridge to cross the creek. About a dozen sites have full 30 amp hookups. The rest are water and electric only. There is a dump station. There are four well-maintained rigs occupied by folks who help out with maintenance, all of them very pleasant. They keep the place looking quite nice, with acres of mowed grass. It is very informal. The office, pool, and bathrooms are closed. The only noise we heard was the surf. There was one other customer the weekend we spent there. Because of the peace and quiet, we prefer this park to the State Park five miles down the road. It's also cheaper. - Denali

This is a small, old park with very little business. The owner is an older lady, keeping the park going on a limited basis since her husband died a few years ago. She is very nice. The park is very quiet, with only a few guests there. You can walk to the beach by crossing a small creek that is a few inches deep. There is beach access 2 miles up the road at Ocean City, or 5 miles to Ocean Shores. This park was a real 'find' for us, as we like a simple, quiet setting. Power water and sewer were a plus. - Nike

We are members so the $3.00 per night was for wifi for two laptops and cable. The wifi signal is very good. On the upper level, some site were closed due to high water table because of record rainfall. All sites on the dune were usable. - Impkitti

This park is our "home park" for our K/M Resorts membership. It is also one of our very favorite. We camp on the ocean side, nearest the beaches. The walk to the beach is over some dunes and the pathway is fairly wide this year. It must be well maintained. The beach seems like a private beach all our own (for the park), but can be accessed along the water by anyone. Those who serve as the staff have always been very helpful.
They have made some good improvements over the winter, and now have a picnic shed and tables near the clubhouse, along with a new ladies' room near the clubhouse and other improvements. - Richbald

This was our maiden voyage with our trailer. It was easy to find, good size spaces for awning and slide-outs. Nice walk thru trails to the beach. Pet friendly. Be sure to pick up after your pet. Stayed on the beach-side of the camp ground. Camp hosts were helpful and friendly. Checked out the club house but no events scheduled during our visit, kitchen was not operational nor was the hot-tub. Bathrooms were cleaned every day with lots of care. We were impressed with the clam cleaning station. We definitely will be back. - Shorty S

The park and facilities are very clean and well maintained. The site's are all good sized with level concrete pads, tables, patio and fire circles. The owner lives on site and is very pleasant and helpful. I would recommend this park if you are in the Ocean City area. - NEOK

This is not a very big park, but the sites were big and LEVEL! We didn't use our jacks at all! And we didn't have to shore up the waste hose, either, it slanted straight and downhill. What a GREAT park!
They only take checks or cash but there is a discount for paying cash.
The bathrooms were nearby and perfectly clean. There is no laundry room at this park. The Laundromat in town is very pricey! $3.75 for one wash!
The decor in the park is really pretty. The proprietor lady is very creative and prides herself in her artistry.
A ten minute easy walk to the beach.
There is a free shuttle to the casino/Emily's restaurant so you don't have to worry about driving after cocktails. - Linda dlm

We camped here in a motorhome. The resort is nothing special, but well kept and clean. The sites are concrete pads which seemed level. The owner was very friendly and accommodating. When the Wi-Fi kept cutting out she reset it and after that it was very good. Satellite worked great. Sites have picnic table and fire pit. Hookups were good. There is a path to the dunes and beach but heavy rains had made it soggy we were told, so didn't try it. Quiet and the clear sky allowed a fantastic star show. We would stay here again. - Joe from Victoria

We had an excellent visit to the ocean because of our stay at this campground. The beach access was very close and a nice walk. The owner/manager of the grounds was friendly and helpful. Grounds/bathrooms/showers were clean and well kept. We will DEFINITELY be returning to Screamin' Eagle! - chris cecc

Not bad. A little pricey for small spaces with no privacy, but close to the beach. They have a hard time thinking things through, as our tow dolly broke on the way, so I had to drive our car into the campground instead of towing it. They charged me an extra 30 dollars for an extra vehicle, even though they could clearly see it was our tow vehicle, for which there is no extra charge. They DO NOT have sewer hookup but a dump station right beside the restrooms. Kind of awkward as it is smelly and somewhat dangerous due to heavy foot traffic. Bathrooms and showers were clean. The grounds were quiet at night and family friendly. They also do not have Wi-Fi access. Overall OK, but I probably would not come back unless it was a last resort. - Slkneib

The owner was very apologetic about nearly everything. The site required some creative leveling, but was OK for overnight. The water was awful, rust-smelling and tasting. The location was good. Not in Ocean Shores as might be perceived. Ok for an overnight stay. Probably would not return to this area. The route on the way out there passed through towns that were pretty blighted overall. The fact that I was able to get in with only one days notice was a plus. - Maltaman

Very nice campground. Staff was great. Pool and restrooms where very clean. Had a more open site so satellite reception was good. Would rate a 9 if they had sewer H/Us. - KLH

Stayed here years ago when it was a Western Horizon park- awful & avoided like the plague since. Has now been added to KM system & MUCH improved. Huge, sites vary in size & from wide open to completely shaded depending on what you want. Rumored hordes of mosquitoes not seen in our 3 visits. Only downer is wi-fi won't connect for me. Works fine for my wife. We went to Ocean Mist regularly for 5 years, but like this much better. - gs2rt

My wife and I drove through this park about four years ago and thought "meh, it's ok" so when I booked it for one night I had low expectations. Let me tell you, this park has changed for the better. The park is HUGE! I walked it just to see what had changed. They have added sites, improved the playground and are doing even more new things (frisbee golf, grass field) to make it better. The sites are large and secluded. Near the back of the park, you can still hear the ocean and have the seclusion of the forest. They have a pool and a decent club house with pool and foosball tables. My site even had a deck that looked out on to a creek. The staff are super helpful and VERY friendly. This is a great park and I wish I had more time to stay here.
A few minor down sides - they only have water and electric at the sites but they do provide four dump stations. It's not a problem for our motorhome but in a trailer with kids it may have been problematic. They do have beach access but you have to walk about a mile to get there once you hit the campground entrance. The other thing is the wifi is slow but if you are looking to unplug on vacation, who cares :-) This is a wonderful campground. - scruggsfamilyRV
