Cooking hamburgers hotdogs at Assateague Island - Camp Cooking

Whether you are a nature lover or want to switch it up and opt out of staying in a hotel room, camping on Delmarva provides a 360 degree view of natural beauty as well as a wealth of fun activities.  Each campsite on Delmarva is unique from the others and loaded with its own exciting adventures. Take a look at a few of our favorite spots to go camping on the Eastern Shore.

Holiday Park Campground

Greensboro, Maryland

Camping on the Choptank sounds like a great idea to us! Plenty of boating and swimming opportunities are right at our tent’s front door, plus scenic views over the campfire. But there are also more activities to take part in not surrounded by the natural environment. Try your hand at the tennis courts, on the mini golf course, take a dive in the pool, or just chill in the game room!

Tuckahoe State Park

13070 Crouse Mill Rd, Queen Anne, MD 21657

For a historical camp out, stake your spot along the same creek that Frederick Douglas grew up on. The Tuckahoe runs straight through the park and a 60-acre lake also provides an outlet for water sports. If walking among the trees is more of your thing, take a stroll through Adkins Arboretum, a 500-acre forest of protected trees. There are also 20 miles of other hiking, biking and equestrian trails.

Frontier Town

8430 Stephen Decatur Hwy, Ocean City, MD 21842

An iconic Ocean City attraction, Frontier Town has made a name for itself not only as a great camping spot but as an entertainment hub. We all know that cowboys and other cow-poke on the prairie camped out under the stars, so why not surround ourselves in the same atmosphere at Frontier Town’s Western Theme Park. And while you are there, splash around at Frontier Town’s free waterpark!

Assateague State Park

7307 Stephen Decatur Hwy, Berlin, MD 21811

On the northern end of the barrier island with roaming ponies and wildlife, anyone can come out to enjoy a bonfire on the beach. Sleep out under the stars and listen to the waves roll in and out of the shore after a day of hiking, boating and beach going!
