Review Detail3.6 43
18-21 June 2015
We made our first visit to Solomons Island Navy Rec Center with our 43' Motorhome and we had no idea what to expect, it was our first visit to a military campground. We were there to attend a friends wedding, which was in the area. First the reception lady we dealt with, Dena, was great. She helped us with an errant UPS shipment and generally was a pleasure to deal with. BTW lowest full-hook up daily rate we were eligible for, as retirees, was $41@night. So our overall impression was that the place looks a bit like a cross between a mobile home park and an RV park. Many TT, MHs and 5th wheelers were parked there for a LONG time, had wooden decks built and were generally on the best sites, ie, secluded sites, or corner sites. Our site was very narrow, as were our neighbors. HOWEVER, in speaking with Dena, and noticing the incoming marquee, which read "INSPECTIONS start the 22nd of June", we learned that new rules were about to be implemented. New policy was a 90 day maximum stay, after 90 days if space was available the individual still was required to move to another site. With a 270 in park maximum within a calendar year. The restrooms and laundry was a bit rough and could have used a good cleaning. But functional. The pool was excellent. And the fishing pier was open and a few folks were there fishing. They do have 24X7 security guards on the front entrance, which was nice. All in all we'd go there again, especially if they implement and enforce the new policy.
