First off this is a campground near a wet land near a ocean. Which makes for spectacular views and experiences but will challenge the uninitiated. Be prepared to keep camp rodent and bug proof. Container pack everything and immediately clean surfaces and remove garbage from the site to manage flies, seagulls and squirrels. Mosquitos were not bad and we noticed... More

The Maddox Family campground has the perfect location for beautiful, comfortable camping and for accessing Assateague Island. We were tent (no hook-up) camping and therefore got to pick where to set up site. They don't have pre-specified, groomed pads so the area is natural and green. Their grounds are my measuring stick for other places. Most of the area has... More

The campground was clean, well maintained and felt safe with security and lighting. They had very friendly staff. Toni, Brenda, Peggy and especially Will were all helpful, friendly and supportive. Thank you for making a hot sticky situation more pleasant.

I made reservations for 2 sites side by side with full hook up, in early March when they opened for season. We were traveling with friends who hadn't been to area and we wanted to be side by side. I called, I followed up with a letter and called again to make sure they received the letter. When we arrived... More

This is not a "glamping" campground. I am fairly new to camping (we bought a travel trailer last fall), but my husband has his entire life and said this reminded him of campgrounds he frequented when younger. We thoroughly enjoyed Maddox with our family of 5, including three small children. Yes it is basic, with not great bath houses and... More

Not sure where to start but was lied to from the beginning and was told we would be 2 rows from a Beach. Heads up...beach is miles away! Then, told there would be a shuttle available and there wasn't. The Office and Store Staff needed a reality check when it came to their personalities. None of them were pleasant. On... More

Cannot say enough about Maddox - from the friendly staff, clean sites and amenities, Maddox has provided myself and my family lasting memories for 25+ years. Highly recommended for both renters and RVers alike. By far the best campground on Chincoteague Island!
