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.

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

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
