These drive up sites offer a great way to enjoy the beach and not have to leave at the end of the day, but they are all very exposed. Some offer slightly more separation from neighboring sites, but none are what you’d call private. I went in December and it was cold and windy, but nice to be one of the few people there. I haven’t been during the summer, but have heard it’s pretty consistently packed, which would considerably downgrade the experience, considering the lack of privacy IMO.
BUT, if you switch your mindset from camping to extended beach trip, then you’ll not be disappointed. Just don’t expect trees and seclusion.
Oh and the horses are cool! Make sure you don’t leave trash out, even in the middle of the day while you are at your site! I had one come up and start rummaging through the bag I had hanging from my truck that I had to shoo away.
These walk-in campsites are nestled in the sand dunes, just on the land-side of the peak of the dunes. This means that most sites do not have a view of the water, but are definitely within earshot of the waves when it’s quiet. Each site has a picnic table with a storage locker underneath and a fire ring.
Some of the sites are super awesome and hidden away, but others are featureless and close together, just out in the open. If the campground was full, it would probably kinda feel like festival camping. But many of the sites are in little groups, so reserving a few adjacent sites with a group of friends would probably be cool. Comparing the campsite loop map and google earth will give you a good idea.
There is virtually no shade (literally zero in the middle of the day), so be prepared for that. The vault toilets are close by but not too close and do the job. Parking is also close, but for most of the walk to your campsite, you’ll be trudging through soft sand.
Overall, this campground is a great way to spend a few days at the beach, but doesn’t offer any real seclusion. Worth it, but just be aware of what to expect.
Make no mistake, this is beach camping, but it is the best. Despite constant 20mph winds for the first two days which prevented us from pitching our tent (we slept in our SUV just fine) we had a blast. It was a bonus when we got the tent up, but the hiking, relaxing on the beach, campfire and watching the wild ponies is unbeatable.
This was a favorite place while living on the east coast. The campground is nicely laid out for a state campground. Plenty of bike trails, places to explore, places to swim both in the bay and ocean. I love the Atlantic in the summer…way more swimable than our Pacific Ocean. I would gladly go back if I'm in the area.
This is a fun mainly RV and Cabin campground. It has a bar on the beach and lots of fun amenities. The camp store/ restaurant has nice options and fun merchandise. The campground is load of fun to walk around, drive a golf cart around, or just people watch. I have stayed in both an RV and cabin. The RV spots are easy to pull into, in great locations, and decently spaced out. The cabins are very well laid out, has a lot of room, and are super "beach bummy." The cabins are fairly pricey, but worth the cost! I have only stayed here on the "off seasons" but have been impressed. The place does have a bit of a trash problem, but that is due to the people staying here. It is not a wonderful place for the kids as it does remain quite loud at night and it is a partying place, but I have always camped with my family with younger children and faced no problems. The beach bar is VERY strict about being 21 or older and can get extremely rude about it, but it is understandable. Overall a great place to stay!
This vacation beach RV park is super fun for the kids. They have old time plays, skits, and activities. The ability to rent golf carts is a super cool bonus especially to get the surroundings. I stayed in a large cabin with another family. The cabin was very nice western themed. There is a camp store that is slightly pricey, but expected, a saloon, an ice cream shoppe, an AWESOME waterpark, and the theme park. The waterpark is simple and not grandiose but so. much. fun. This is such a fun stop!
This campsite is accessed via a bridge from Berlin, Maryland. There is bayside and oceanside camping. The oceanside camp ground has 2 loops. Both loops have black top roads and pads, however loop 2 is a little more sand swept. These site are literally on the edge of the dunes.
There are no hookups, but they do offer composting bathrooms. Although there is no greenery separating sites, the sites are well spaced. Its lovely to listen to the ocean at night. Each site has a fire ring & picnic table. 20min from the hustle and bustle of Ocean City but feels like you are worlds away. The beach is beautiful and you can obtain a 4WD permit to do some beach driving. 10min to Sinepuxent Brewery which is well worth a trip.
The horses roam around the campground and like to venture down onto the beach. Winter(until April) is first come first served. Check-in is easy at the park office at the entrance. If you arrive after hours they leave a site map marked with which sites are free.
