Take the pontoon!!

Half of the sites are dry camping other half are electric only. Dogs are allowed at half the sites. They had the cleanest nicest showers we have ever seen at a campground. Fantastic camp store with long hours. Camper size Old Bay was there!! Ice cream, firewood, cake, and a new pontoon service to the island beach. It was $12 for 2 hours. Takes you to beach and swimming but no amenities so plan well. We loved it. There are fire road trails which are more like paths through the woods. Very flat. Be sure to wear DEET as the chiggers and ticks are crazy hungry there. There is a canal that borders the campground where the breeze comes through nicely and has great sunset view. Dump station was nice, but dumpsters are along ways from the camp spots. Staff was extremely friendly and helpful. Our favorite part by far was the pontoon over to the island to swim at the beach especially because you can bring your dog and ours had a blast

Beautiful!

The weekend we camped here was beautiful! If you enjoy kayaking/canoeing this is the place for you. They have 30 miles worth of different water trails. The island has miles of private beaches that you can have to yourself. The camp offers kayak and canoe rentals if you don't have your own. I would recommend reserving your sight early on if you want a water front spot. We called the week of and got a waterfront spot but it was not private and located out by the marina.

A new favorite camping spot

Beautiful campground. The bathrooms were nicer than my bath at home and sparkling clean. Staff was amazingly pleasant and helpful. The campground was quiet and peaceful. The park had so much to explore, kayaking, hiking, fishing, beach access via kayak; we could have easily spent a week there. I was worried before arriving because other reviewers complained about the bugs. We were there mid July and the bugs weren’t bad at all, a few mosquito bites, and the biting flies were kept at bay by cutter. We will definitely be back. The kayaking alone is worth the trip.

Loved this campground!!

Great campsite! Lots of water access, crabbing and hiking areas!!

Loved this place

We stayed at this campground August 2017. We had a 20’ travel trailer, 2 kids, and 2 boxers. This was a great place. Very quiet. Checkin was easy. You have to go into the store to check in. Our site was right across the the bathroom facilities which was great for us because it’s difficult to shower in a 20’ rv. So we utilized the bathroom facilities a lot. The bathrooms were clean and had 3 shower/ dressing areas along with several toilets and sinks on the other side.

We were not bayside but close enough to walk. Some site are bayside and right on the water. The sites are big enough, have a picnic table, and a fire pit/cooking area. We also had full hookup.

There is a lookout tower which my kids enjoyed climbing.

there is not much here or in town. We did find a food store in town but bring stuff with you because it took some searching to find it.

events of the weekend. We bought inflatable kayaks and paddles out to James island. This was a lot of fun. James island has a beach area so we paddles right up and explored the island. Not much to do but it was fun exploring.

Also, the rangers run events for the kids. On Saturday they had a crabbing contest. They educated the kids about different kids of crabs and then gave them crabbing line with chicken on it and let them crab. They took measurements of the crabs and awarded a certificate to the person that caught the largest crab. Everyone enjoyed this. There were a lot of kids there too and it made a good fun competition. Everyone got excite to see when someone caught a crab.

Overall this was a fun quiet weekend and we enjoyed ourselves.

Kayak and bird heaven

On the Bay, a few electric sites. Clean restrooms. Nice dock for boats and great kayak trails. Biking is fun around the old towns nearby.

Great sunset veiws over the water

Although many reviews on trip advisor warned of bugs, we saw very few in June 2018. We had great sunset views right from our camping spot on the water #76.

Beautiful campground

We had a great time. The campground is very nice. Lots of wildlife to watch. They offer kayak rentals, we really enjoyed kayaking through the water trails. You can also kayak out to a sand beach. You can go crabbing for blue crabs. We would definitely recommend staying here.
