out that out of like 1,000 sites only 20 or so of them are "transient" as they call them...no thanks. And they don't allow golf carts

little further south to Virginias eastern shore, Tall Pines Harbor Campground is on the bay side and very nice. Large sites. So many golf carts is annoying to those of us that don't use them.

It's a shame because when we want to stay closer to home and do a 2 night trip we end up in NJ. Which has a handful of campgrounds that COULD be top notch but for whatever reason they have there own way of doing things. The other thing about NJ is there are NO waterfront campgrounds like in DE, MD,VA etc. They only have murky lakes

I would guess there is only so much open space left. Towns are required to provide low income property's, I'm sure they will not go broke....

I suppose it's irrelevant since the project is now dead, but I am very curious what would make a campground "State of the Art"? Or was that just another way of saying "new"?

I've been to the Yogi several times. They have done a lot with it since they bought it and turned it into a Yogi CG. The owners are very nice and it's not far from the Bay for a day at the beach. It's not the best beach but, it's a beach.
There is Castaways in Ocean City MD, right on the Assawoman Bay. The beach there is very shallow but there's a boat ramp, fishing, two pools etc and outside of Ocean City.

I guess you could say new but I mean't modern facilities with all the resort type amenities not just a parking lot in the woods with electric and water.

Castaways is our favorite place but difficult to get reservations we go once or twice a year.


How far is Jellystone from rehobeth beach? I hate going to places that advertise being near a beach only to find out it's a half hr ride.
