Well I am back again and I must say things are getting worse at this facility. The grounds are totally neglected - if someone didn't know better they would think it was an abandoned campground. The grass and weeds are totally out of control - looks like nothing has been cut since last summer - just plain awful. The entire facility has been undergoing change - full time residents all moved into one area and made to move - this is good as it has freed up the "F" area - right now there are only 6 campers there - the sites haven't been cleaned up as there is wood, broken stepping stones and other items left behind. I cut the grass on the site I am staying at because I couldn't find my dog when he went out side the weeds are so tall and deep. Come on NDW or PAX River get this place cleaned up!!!! New cabins have been built on the site so money obviously isn't a problem - looks like management of this facility is just plain not doing their job. Too bad - my guess is the Navy will lose this place to the state of Maryland before long - then all military members will lose. Oh yeah - all this and the rates have gone up too!!!!

Very quiet and peaceful. My biggest complaint is that the management could care less about the upkeep of the CG. Weeds are knee high, fire rings never cleaned, street lights half out along with the lights on the power hookups. We stay here quite often and it is a beautiful area and a good price - word is the manager is more interested in the disc golf than the campers. Camp hosts are in each area (A and B) but other than getting a free site they don't do anything that anyone can see. Same pieces of trash blowing around the CG for the past 2 months. Restrictions on the B side require individuals to leave (no homesteading) at least once during the summer months but it is a known fact there are two or three individuals that are permanent residents. Why? Something about their CO writing and getting an exemption - wonderful - at least one of them is drawing full BOQ and the other is a retired Navy working for a DOD contractor. This could be a top notch CG if managed properly - too bad the Air Force doesn't run it. I am a retired MCPO and it's a shame not more attention is given to this facility.

We stay here twice a year when transiting from Florida to Maine - previously lived in the area before full-timing and after retiring from Navy. Let me say I like this CG very much but don't like what is happening to it - I recommend it to everyone that asks - and this could be one of the best military campgrounds any where but it is turning into a slummy trailer park. It looks like short comings are addressed in some random way - some people have to take down fences around their camper yet some keep boats (against rules) next to their camper along with 40 or 50 gallons of gas in containers. People leave their campers for months at a time and the weather tears up tents and covered patios - not to mention that many of the "full time residents" put up those tacky white rooms or even garages. The fire boxes have had a "not operational" sign on them for the past 3 years - hope nothing burns. This place makes money for MWR and obviously needs management that knows what it is doing. I was active duty at NDW and visited the rec center many times with the Admiral that had oversight and it was never in this condition. We stay here due to close proximity of family - the area is beautiful - someone needs to kick this place in line.
