Love this place!

My family has been camping at Raystown since I was a kid. The lake is absolutely gorgeous and offers endless outdoor adventure—hiking, biking, fishing, boating, kayaking, and more. The sites are pretty close together, and it’s usually really packed throughout the summer, but it’s still a beautiful place to camp. Would definitely recommend!

Great weekend getaway

My family camps here most weekends in the summer. It's close to our house and easily accessible. The campground itself is really nice. They've done a lot of improvements over the years which have paid off. Nice camp stores, two swimming pools, mini golf, and a catch-and-release fishing lake. The sites are close together, but for a weekend getaway it isn't unbearable. They have fun holiday events, like the Halloween trick or treat, and they provide a shuttle for Bedford's annual Fall Foliage festival, which is a bonus. All-in-all, it's a really nice family campground.

Beautiful beachside camping

Our family has loved coming here for many years. It's such a fun experience walking out of your camper and right onto the beach. The campground is very well maintained and they have some amazing amenities. The pool is absolutely gorgeous and we love the lazy river. We also love the golf cart rentals and the "golf cart parades" they have each night. Highly, highly, highly recommend this place!

Absolutely in love with this place!

I can't say enough good things about this state park. Sites are the perfect size for our tent and canopy, and are secluded enough that you aren't on top of your neighbors. Bath houses are clean and updated, and I like that they have a sink outside to wash dishes. We've rented a canoe to explore the river, which was beautiful, but mostly we camp here and drive about 45 minutes to Ocean City. We came here on a whim three years ago and have made it a tradition to come back each year. I cannot recommend this place enough!

Small Campground, Very Close Sites

My biggest complaint about this campground is how close the sites were together. They packed a lot of sites into a small area and it shows. The campground was maintained well and easy to access. I wouldn't want to stay here for a long period of time, but for a quick weekend away with the family, it was decent.

Love it here!

We really loved camping at Rocky Gap. Booked it spur of the moment and can't wait to go back. Plenty of room on the site and the sites weren't too close together. Really nice hiking opportunities throughout the park. We didn't swim, but the beach area for the campground was really well maintained and the store was really well stocked. We went to the Casino and had dinner on the resort one night, which was a nice evening after hiking most of the day. We were in a tent, but noticed a lot of pull-through sites for campers. Will definitely stay here again and would definitely recommend.

Great family park

We had two tents and a canopy on our site and it was the perfect size. Easy to get to and not far from Hagerstown if you need to go to the grocery store. The beach area is nice, but gets very packed each weekend. The area also has nice hiking that ranges in difficulty levels. We did the hardest hike, which was about 5 miles. Trails are marked really well and maps are conveniently placed throughout the trails. Will definitely camp here again.
