Great location and the trailer sites are well maintained. We stayed at the "Marylander" area which is a mile or two from the newer site called "Shore" The new bath house is open with private bathroom/shower rooms. The price is great and APG has a nice gym, pool and commissary.
This is our third visit to this campground. The location is very good for us personally to visit the grandkids. There is a new 24 site campground called Shore that is opening shortly that will be in addition to this RV Park with 11 sites. The reservation and check-in system is still cumbersome. I'm hoping once the larger campground is open and in full swing, that process will get better. Having to pay in advance for the entire length of the reservation is unusual. We were also told that the weekly rate is not in effect beginning June 1st. The site itself is very nice. We were able to get our forward roof mounted sat dish to come in by staying towards the front of the site. We were in site #9. There are padlocks on the water/sewer and electrical boxes. You will need to make sure you get the code for the padlocks ahead of time if you are going to arrive after MWR duty hours. I thought the directions provided on this website were very easy to follow but then again I wrote them. :)
It was a bit difficult to find the site. It's buried well within the base, next to the housing area and next to a fence with off-base housing on the other side. Site itself was clean and fairly quite; deer graze right next to the site. There are no bath/toilet/shower facilities. We had a problem making contact with the staff. I left numerous messages before someone returned my call. The person was nice but not to well informed, telling me i would need a gate code if i arrived after hours (there is no gate or other security at the site). I made several calls when i got close to the base, to get the code, no answers. Luckily there was no gate; if there had been I'd have had to find a short notice alternate location. The site is close to the BX/commissary; both are very good. We would stay again; the base in located in a very nice area.
M.B. left this review using the Directory software: - Stayed at the APG North campground 16-18 Aug 14. Made initial reservation attempts through the internet site, followed up with several phone calls. As noted earlier, the management still appears to be learning the ropes and communications with them (3 non-replied emails & 3 unreturned messages). Should have paid more attention to a previous review indicating for after-hours check-ins the keys for the sites are in a metal box at the MWR office, which was not communicated to us by either phone call or email. Noticing the utilities were locked, we found another site and moved to that one before setting up. Formally checked in with MWR the next day without incident. The campground is in great shape as it is relatively new. Workers were still performing maintenance on the sites & grounds to further improve the area. There is an occasional train noise in the background, throughout the day/night, from a nearby Amtrak/MARC line, but you get used to it. The base Top of the Bay Club is open on weekdays for lunch. We opted for the hot lunch buffet for $9.95. The food was good; however, one of the staff measured out one 4” kielbasa link and one stuffed shell. The side dishes are self-serve and the buffet includes a trip to the soup or salad bar. Be careful at the salad bar as the shelves are slanted and if you leave your tray there it will fall off onto the floor. There is also a sandwich bar if you prefer a lighter lunch. The Aberdeen Diner, about two miles north on Route 40, is nothing fancy, but has good home-cooked food. There is also Wal-Mart Superstore about one mile north on Route 40 from the MD 715 junction, which was very convenient. Although there are limited facilities at the camp area itself, the hookups were properly placed and there was a fire ring and table for each site. There was enough room to park a camper as well as a boat and two vehicles, as the camper across from us did easily. The Commissary & BX were well stocked for all basic needs. We will definitely keep this campground in mind for future planning.
There is no bathhouse, which we knew before hand. The sites are fairly remote, but near family housing. A short 1/4 to 3/8 of a mile away there is a family housing playground we used. One pool was closed for repair and the other open only on weekend until 13 June. Most everything is a bit away. The directions they gave us were awful, even though the campground is easy to find, they complicated it by trying to take the shortest route. Follow the faint pink highlighter on the map that is on the web and you should do OK. Baltimore was expensive, Harve de Grace is a hidden treasure.
Very nice area, I wish there was a DUMPING STATION for when I am driving through that could be done or maybe something could be worked out. The price is just right and I can't wait to spend the night...come on SUMMER!
