I had camped here once before, and found the campsite to literally be in the parking lot of someone's cabin. we had enough space for a tent, and that was about it. so, our kind neighbors, who had helped us build a fire the night before, since we had arrived after dark and were woefully underprepared, allowed us to peak into their cabins, and i was convinced this was a better deal. i came back in the off season--we got really lucky with the weather--and the location was great, parking is free and plentiful at rehoboth--all and all, a great deal. the cabins are comfortable and warm. also? the cabins are close to the bathhouse, which is great--they are clean and the showers were spacious and the water was hot. i just don't understand why the management would chose to fly the confederate flag and have confederate flag themed gifts in the management office. my friend (who is not from this country) actually asked me if delaware was considered part of the south--um. yeah. pretty sure the mason-dixon line is a bit farther south. we thought this was a great deal and had a wonderful time, but it is hard to endorse a place (even a deal as great as this--BUT GO WITH THE CABINS!) that flies the confederate flag. really? in 2010?
