Had a terrible start to our trip. After driving 9 hours to get there had trouble checking in. Staff not very helpful. Park not dog friendly at all. Trail maps hard to follow and not kept up. We did some geocaching and that was fun, some great challenging finds. Grandkids loved that. I would not go back. I would try... More

Nice state park the sites are big restrooms/showers are well kept along with the rest of the park, the museum is a nice place to visit. Only thing to remember is 1power post for 2sites so depending on which site you have the power might be on the opposite side as your hook up, make sure you have an extension... More

This is a beautiful campground with wonderful views from the beach. The beach is not too far of a walk from most of the campsites. Some of the things that were a drawback: When you pull into your campsite- there is one electric outlet for both campsites. That means if you're on the left of it, you have to run... More

We were camping in one of the circles in 2014 , on the edge of a thick wild area. At night, a small fire going and my shi-tzu on my lap, it got very dark and the fire died down. I could not see much, but I looked a bit to my right and there is a large raccoon approaching... More

It's huge with lots of roads just running everywhere. Check it out on maps. Other than the NAVY/USAF museum, which was closed, it was very basic. Seemed clean and gad a playground. The camping area seemed a bit too wide open for my liking, but the cabins looked very nice. Would be nice to sit on the pier at night,... More

We have been going to Sampson state park for 3 summers now and plan on many more. We picked Sampson because of the price and proximity to an event we were going to (Vino and the Beast) but we now bring a large group and stay the week because we just love it there. Book way early to get a... More

We originally booked three nice here but decided to only stay one night. It was very clean and well maintained and the bathrooms were spotless. Water was hot and easy set up but found it to be a little bit far from where we wanted to be. Sites are wide open, not a whole lot of privacy either. Although if... More

My favorite spot. Camp here for the dog shoes every Fall. Tenting ok. Excellent for RVs. Nice concession stand. Many memories here. Showers are ok. Could be improved. Spacious sites with stone drive in areas. Electric only. No water hookups.

We camped at Sampson in a fifth wheel, for 3 nights. Enjoyed having a 30 amp electric hookup, though be aware that the hookup boxes are shared by two sites, so the box isn't always on the correct side of your camper. We had to use two long electric cords to reach the box. Also, water faucets are not always... More
