The most peaceful place to stay
Chief Pudge
December 27, 2015
We go almost every year for a week to 10 days. We used to go so that we ended Columbus day weekend so we could take in the Endless Summer Cruisin' car show. A hurricane and a government shutdown now have us going in the spring. It is awesome waking up to the ponies going through the campsite.
Plenty of Canoe / kayak opportunities. We have been to Berlin and Snow Hill - two very nice towns.
If you want to relax in nature this IS THE PREMIER campground.
one dump / water station for bayside and another for oceanside. Generators are allowed in most loops

We stayed here in a Popup Trailer.

One of the northeast's most pristine beach areas
September 15, 2012
If hiking, biking, birding, watching wild ponies and enjoying the beach and the sea appeal to you, this is THE place to visit. Campsites are available behind the dunes on the ocean side of the island. Other campsites which are near the bay offer some beautiful views. Parking, just a short stroll from the beach, is available for day visitors. Permits are available for off-road-vehicles to drive and park on parts of the beach.

Most campsites are paved but some on the bay side of the island offer grass for tent camping. None of the sites have hookups or shade, but each group of campsites is served by nearby cold-water lavatories and showers, non-flush toilets, a waste disposal container and an outdoor potable water faucet. Two RV water tank refill sites and dumping stations are available at no extra charge; one serving the bay side and the other serving the beach side. Most camping areas allow the use of generators but quiet-time is st

We stayed here in a Class A Motorhome.

Beautiful park, light on amenities.
June 21, 2011
Sites have no shade, and are quite sunny on bright days. Can be very windy also, but mosquitoes & gnats bad when it's not.

Take longer spikes for your tent, because normal ones will come right out of the sand. Sites are just behind the dunes on the beach, & it's a beautiful place if you are beach lover. It can get a bit chilly at night during spring & fall.

Showers are cold water only, & not super private. Bathrooms are now permanent structures, but are still pit bathrooms. Water available is from a hand pump & is cold only. So if you are going for longer than a day or so, you probably want to get a solar shower.

Our last visit site had a firepit instead of grill.
Firewood is readily available by local sellers outside the park.

Ocean City is about 15-20 minutes away if you seek a little excitement, & there's a Ruth's Chris that lets you wear jeans reasonably close as well if you seek something really fancy while camping.

We stayed here in a Tent.
