Stayed in loop 4 was a nice camp ground, clean and fairly level. Full hookups and a fire pit.
Serene winding trails to the breathtaking beach. Beautiful sites… But… Wish there were more with hookups. It was quite a ways to get water… Despite the online note saying Pad Maneuverability is “good”, our site required a very sharp back-in turn, with a “wrong way” sign strategically placed right in the way, just to make it extra special. People are so friendly: the Teardrop Rally gang were watching me struggling to back the trailer into place (for the first time I might add!) and cheering me on, and then gave me a STANDING O when I finally got that sucker parked! I took a bow! Hey Teardrop Rally folks: Thanks so much for the encouragement! Can we be honorary members? We’d like to hang with you super cool and awesome Peeps!…
We were only here for one night, but it was a very nice campground that is steps away from the ocean. All of the facilities were clean and everything seemed to be well taken care of. I would definitely visit this campsite again!
Ocean City State Park, has several campsite loops. It is located just off of the beach with easy access. Loop one has a nice field in the middle which is good for groups that want to camp near each other.
Our kids & dogs love this campground because of easy access to the beach. Great place to play boogie boards, skimboards, just playing in the waves, kites flying, building sand castles or just laying on the sand.
Every time we goes there it always show as it'll rain, but we usually get at least 1 day of great sun and when it's sunny, it's the best place to be.
This is one of the State Park that does not have the list of long rules. The park rangers are usually friendly and not too strict and your tent does not have to be on the pad.
Loop 3 & Loop 4 have closer access to the beach and better sites.
Usually clean facilities and showers. Each loop has 1 shower within the men and women bathrooms.
When it's raining for more than a day, lots of sites can be muddy and swampy especially in loop 2.
Ocean is always cold no matter what time of the year.
If an ideal camping trip is one with your tent pitched in a wooded setting, but you love to spend time on the beach, this state park is for you. Only reason for not giving five stars is the lack of hiking trails and they really need to update their bathroom facilities. One other thing to mention is that since this is a state park it is sadly underfunded and with that said, understaffed. Make sure you can get a reservation before coming in or you can wind up getting a spot for one night but have to move to another the next day. I saw this happen to two different people. The main issue was the park is woefully understaffed and the park office isn't open long enough to service everyone's needs. But, nicely laid out campground, very short walk to the beach, wildlife is pretty abundant.
This campground is one of the larger ones we've stayed at with 4 loops there. We've stayed in loop 1 two years in a row. That loop has a nicer restroom facility with showers in it. Not all loops even have flushing toilets. There is nice beach access from the campground. And lots of things to do in nearby Ocean Shores. There is shopping, dining, go carts and other beaches within about a 10-15 minute drive.
Pros: had our own bathroom, electricity in the pavilion at our campsite, close to many activities (kite flying at the beach, arcade with putt putt and bumper boats, casino), deer everywhere! Cons: Group camp layout is long and narrow
Try to visit during the summer months. Its located in some low lying marshlands.
Happened to be there during a music festival. It was VERY loud until late. Our site had little privacy, but many others looked more secluded.
