Beautiful campground with a cute view on the river. Be prepared, there's a looot of insects, but apart from that it was awesome. Great showers and the campsites are big and shady.

Nice place to camp in the early season before a bunch of people start coming. Couldn’t find anyone who worked there so I booked online and hoped for the best. The tent area was nice without anyone else around, otherwise it would be one right next to the other. Couldn’t find bathroom facilities. I couldn’t even figure out where I was camping as the areas are not clearly marked (one small sign at one of the 2 entrances). Thankfully 2 other people who had been there before were able to guide me through the process. All in all I had a nice stay and was secluded which was what I wanted.

Literally the cleanest camp bathrooms I have ever seen - I was impressed. This is a fun location. Canoeing the water trail was fun (and the rentals were much cheaper than other companies in the area), the nature center had great critters and enthusiastic rangers that took lots of time with our crew, warm showers, lots of shade, & ice cream at the camp store is a nice touch. 30 minutes from Assateague. You have to leave the camp if you want some bigger hiking trails, but you don't have to go far. Maybe bring your wood in from nearby, though, since our friends that bought it at the camp store couldn't get their fire going because the wood was wet and full of sap. Maybe they just got a bad bag? But still, we'd definitely camp here again.
