The Marylander is pretty much as indicated I just wanted to offer an up date to it. I have a 50ft 5th wheel and had no problems getting backed in as the drive area had enough space to pull up so the RV could be easily backed right in to the space(s). I stayed for 11 days and everything is conventionally located w barber shops, Walmart, train station, laundromats etc. The camp ground itself was quite, aside from the occasional train. The camp site backed up to some off post housing but didn’t bother me at all. So if your not needing the laundry/ bathhouse or a more of a outdoor ambience the Marylander will work great for the price.
This was only the latest of numerous stays for us at the APG Marylander RV Park and we like it a lot. We prefer the Marylander to the newer Shore Park as the newer park is $10/night more at this time and we don't need the bath house or laundry facilities (although you can buy a laundry card and get a key card for the Shore Park at MWR if you need it). APG is "Home Base Northeast" for us when we want to be near our grand-kids in the Baltimore area. Being on the west side of post near US 40/Pulaski highway and the railroad tracks, the Marylander is a bit noisier than the Shore Park, but it's not bad at all and one gets used to it very quickly. In fact, the acorns hitting the top of the RV in the fall are much louder! The concrete pads are large and level (I was told by a former CSM they are not as level in the Shore Park) and the utilities are good (50 amp without voltage drops or fluctuation, good water and sewer). The MWR staff are super nice and helpful and the parks are well maintained. Post is a great place to ride bikes and we've even put our kayak in the bay and paddled around. The PX and exchange are medium size and great for the basics. There's a Walmart Supercenter just outside the gate and propane about 7 minutes from the Marylander park.
Located just north of Baltimore. The campground is clean and quiet. Each site is concrete paved and level. There are no shower facilities at the campground. This is a new military camp ground. We have relatives in Fallston Maryland which is 15 miles from the base so this was great for us. We also like The Bordy Vineyard in Baldwin Maryland which is also close by. It is a thirty minute drive to downtown Baltimore if you stay away from the rush hour traffic times. The Penn Line can be caught at the Aberdeen Station into Baltimore or into Washington DC. For the money you can't beat this place.
We enjoyed our two weeks here. Some train noise, but mostly quiet. Lots of wildlife. Good place to walk the dogs and a good base vet. No park host that we saw. If after hours, you still need to go to MWR for key since power and water are lock. On the porch of MWR there is a metal box marked "Hunting Permits". Key and registration info in box. Weekly and monthly discounts. Always empty spaces while we were there.
Hidden treasure; superb location; excellent locale; clean; new; neat; private. Although adjacent to housing area, this military campground was like its own world. As this is a NEW operation, the MWR folks are still learning the ropes on campground management (check-in; directions; facility information; etc.). APG is a big base with good facilities and recreation. Definitely rates a return visit.
R.O. left this review using the Directory software: - My wife and I spent two weeks at APG camping ground to visit family. We arrived a day earlier than our reservation and called MWR to see if a site was available. Not only was the site available but the person at MWR, Lyndsey Moore, waited after hours to give us the site keys. This camp ground just opened around April 2014 and was replacing a camp ground located at Edgewood military facility, according to MWR. The sites are concrete pads with full hook-up and are spaced nicely. The sites are located between very mature trees which provided shade and in our case did not prevent us from getting a strong satellite connection. There is no bath house or dump which I do not consider as a negative factor. Each site has a lock on the electric and water connections. This key must be picked up at the MWR office. This camp ground will have Wi-Fi in the very near future. The library has Wi-Fi. They were measuring for installation during our stay. Surprisingly, during our visit there were 6 empty sites. There are plenty of things to do on and off post. It is a golfers paradise. The weekly rate makes this campground one of the least expensive in the military system. The stay is limited to 30 days according to the printed literature however based on the current occupancy rate this rule may have some flexibility.
Excellent brand new park. Large concrete pads include picnic table. Quiet area. The directions on this website are excellent. We didn't use the ones given by the park staff as they looked too confusing. We arrived on Sunday when the office is not open, but there is a park host who had welcome info plus key to unlock the utilities. Wish we could have stayed longer and explored the area. There is no bath house which we didn't need since the full hookups are excellent, but a laundry would be a good suggestion for the future. There is also an excellent RV repair shop right outside the base. Our electric step quit working and we were able to get right in and have it repaired so we were able to move on the next day.
