I wanted to I could give this Park 5 stars. It's close to lots of great places to eat it has a beautiful beach with lots of board walk access, but the bath houses were in need of cleaning. From the outside they look lovely. Inside huge spiders, cobwebs, dead bugs, chipped paint, etc. a broom and regular cleaning would fix it. Also small roads and sites. Was glad we had a small 20' camper. We also enjoyed the little playground nearby. No internet $98 for 2 nights.

| Nice but disappointed.

We had to reserve a non specific site since all other sites we're booked up many months early. Still got a nice site though. Toured the entire campground and never been to a state park where the road was so narrow and overhanging branches were so low. Actually had a hole punched it the roof covering. Not good. Another problem I noticed was most of the RV sites we're reserved by tent campers. Not really sure why they do that when there were plenty of tent sites left open. Overall a great location but I was not impressed with how they run it. Probably won't return.

We stayed for 3 nights ...lots of great restaurants nearby. Wonderful easy walking acess to Chesapeake Bay, lots of level bike trails...and some more challenging. Friendly, engaging, and knowledgeable staff. Regular rounds made by park police... nice shaded sites. We camped in a 32 ft motor home.

Very nice place. Camped in tents this trip and noticed some larger units parked around us, small roads so it was surprising to see them. Might be tough negotiations with less experienced operators. Clean and somewhat quiet.

| We are coming back!

What a great clean campground with boardwalks to the beach! Friendly staff and office is open until midnight. Quiet and spread out!

Stayed here for a week for Spring Break. We used it as a base to visit historical sites in the area. The campground was nice. Some of the roads within the park were a tight fit, but manageable. Sites were big, lots had nice climbing trees for the kids. Great boardwalk to the beach, dogs allowed. Bathhouse was standard. Loved he kitchen sinks outside, it saved our gray tank for the week. Bad part and reason for 4 stars is the noise from the road and the military base next door. They had helicopter night trainings for 3 nights. They ended near 10, but just noisy.

We love returning to favorite campgrounds and also discovering new ones. When scouting for a recent trip, we looked at First Landing because it was further down our coastal route. If you scan the reviews on this app, you will notice what we did; namely there are numerous, positive, reviews. This place seemed like it held promise. Boy did it ever! We spent only one night but would love to spend more. Here our GBU: The Good: A Civilian Conservation Corps project from the thirties, it is at this point an OLD park in the best of ways. The park is filled with large, mature trees that shelter sites from sun and views of other campers. You are both in the woods and by the beach. There are MANY sites for whatever you camp in, our 21 foot Class B Chinook fit in to our site with room to spare. There are tent sites and large motorhome sites, etc., etc.. it is clearly a family friendly place. We saw many parents with small children, making us reminiscent for our days camping with our kids (now 21, 24, and 26). The beaches were delightful, with charming elevated boardwalks. The staff were friendly and helpful. The sites had sturdy fire rings and picnic tables. The loop layout was unusual but well marked. Sites were spacious, private, and clean. We did not use the bathrooms, but we could not smell them from outside! The Bad: There was some delay checking in. We could imagine this being quite an ordeal during peak season. Plan to arrive early! The electric and water hookups at our site were well back from the parking pad. You may need extension cords or additional hoses. The Ugly: It's too big! The campground is so sprawling that it is a long journey from one end to the other. This is not a huge deal if you are staying put, but you might be rather far from bathhouse, etc. All in all this is one of our new favorite places and we WILL be returning! See you down the trail!

Enough separation and brush between sites I did not have to see my neighbors. Some sites, particularly tent sites are closer like group sites. We were in deep shade all day, some sites are full sun. Very pleased.
