“Excellent Campground!! Lousy showers!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 22, 2013

Fort Whaley is an excellent place to stay. Everything about it is absolutely fantastic..., except the showers. I am all in favor of a greener planet as much or more than the next person, but come on! Those little energy-saving buttons on the showers are ridiculous. I understand all the reasons for implementing them: save water, save money, etc.; but, there is just no substitute for a good hot shower at the end of a long day of activity. Or a nice hot shower to start your day off in the morning. it is for this reason I knocked my rating down to just "Very Good" for facilities. Otherwise, the showers and bathrooms are immaculately clean and well cared for.

Room Tip: Oh goodness! So many to choose from!

Both times i have been to this lovely little campground have been very relaxing. This is not the high energy new stye campground typically found in the area. This is the kind of campground you want to stay out if you want to relax and your kids know how to play with out modern toys!!!!!!!

Everyone from the staff to other campers here were wonderful. You are 15-20 min from ocean city, still close enough.

If you have a bigger unit it can be tight in some areas but they do have sites for large units also. This is a perfect place for younger families and older folks. If your kids are older then 7 this probably isnt the right place for you in this area.

Room Tip: Do not be afraid to ask how large the lot is and make sure they know what size unit you have.
