$95 a night cash or check for a camping cabin with double bed and separate room with two bunks (sleeps 6 altogether.) Bring your own linens. Air conditioning, microwave and fridge were a huge plus. Site had a fire ring and picnic table. Nice swimming pool, playground and indoor game room. It was quiet at night while were there. Bathrooms... More

Go here if you want an inexpensive place to crash for the night while you spend your time at the beach, or anywhere else. This place is so small and cramped that if you expect any of the privacy you usually get while camping you will be sorely disappointed. Imagine two regular sized parking spots, this is how big their... More

My short review, I would not suggest this campground to anyone. Small sites, hidden rules, rude staff, and disorganized. There are so many other campgrounds, pick another. If you want the longer review, read on: First, the reservation office needs to be better organized than their school notebook method. This led to payment confusion at check in, and later when...

I was just on the phone with a manager who hung up on me. He would not disclose his name. I requested an owner to call me back because a tree fell on my car while I was there and I requested compensation in either a refund or credit with the grounds because I am out my insurance deductible and...

On the 3rd of July, a perfectly healthy tree limb fell for no apparent reason. It did some damage to this lady's vehicle. We exchanged insurance information, and both insurance companies agreed that those types of situations are considered an act of God. More

You know you're in for a bad experience when you see a Confederate flag flying as soon as you pull in. People were lighting off fireworks in the campground, which is not safe, people yelling obscenities across the grounds because of a crying baby. Rude, inconsiderate people. Overpriced firewood. Pictures on line do not accurately reflect the grounds. It is... More

We do not allow fireworks in our campground, and it is stated explicity in our rules. We need to be informed of such issues so that we are able to address them. This includes people yelling obscenities, which we also do not allow. The management all live right on site so that we are able to address such issues as... More

Loved this place. Close to everything Rehoboth Beach has to offer. Not on the beach but i dont have to pay $280 plus for a hotel room either. $40 gets you a tent site. Very friendly staff, and clean facilities. Very family friendly. Don't be put off by others who say just because the owner is a son of Confederate... More

We have stayed here many times! The people are always great, the closeness to everything is a blessing, the tent sites are nice and bathrooms were amazing. There are other options for those who dont tent camp. We would recommend this place to people. The only thing we don't like is the prices in the office, but then we just... More

I spent two nights at a tent site. Water and electricity were available. I wasn't too thrilled with the cleanliness of the bath house or the lack of lighting. The pool was nice though and the price of 40$ a night was fine. Friendly staff and the store on site has ice and other things available if you're in a... More

This is a great campground for young families who intend to spend time at Rehoboth Beach. It's located less than three miles from the beach making it easy to travel back and forth. Onsite they have modern shower facilities, a pool and a nice playground - home to a huge bunny who lives there! The camp sites are located close... More

The owner seems to have an excuse for everything, but believe me when I say that you would be better suited to stay ANYWHERE else but here. They are extremely rude, have a 'take it or leave it' attitude, and are very belligerent. Rude to myself and my guests, unkempt grounds, and just overall a very unwelcome atmosphere.

The review makes it unclear as to what the issue was, but my guess is that they came when we were full, and had a few areas left that are not our best. We don't twist anybody's arm, we just say this is all we have left, if you want it, it's yours, if not, no problem. More
