We had a great time. 4 children were with us, they had plenty to do, biking, walking to camp store, swimming and crabbing off the pier. I just loved the friendly staff and campers. This is truly a community. Would like to have a permanent spot.

First lets talk about the good things. Easy to find. The bathrooms were clean. The pool was clean but a little on the small side. The staff was very friendly and helpful. My seven year old daughter was delighted to find out a Mr Whippy ice cream truck came through atleast twice a day. She was able to ride her bike around our loop with no worries. Big fishing and crabbing piers. The camp store was stocked to the max with anything you could need for camping and much more.Now for the not so good. To many golf carts and to many golf carts going way to fast. Very dusty. Overall had a great time not much to complain about. We camped in a travel trailer.

We stayed the last three nights in the O section which is the waterfront area. Absolutely wonderful. The first two days we stayed on lot N-12 which was across the road from the bath houses. The bath houses were great but so many campers come and go in their vehicles which made our site a bit like Time Square. Also, the campground, or someplace in town rents motorscooters and they were everywhere in the campground. The noise was bad where we stayed the first two nights, but when we moved to the waterfront area the traffic was remarkably less. The campground and the island are great for bicycle riding, even to Assateague Island is a good ride. Kayaking from our campsite was great. It was hot, and it seemed that the park's electricity had a bit of trouble to handle all those AC units; you could easily hear the waves of power getting to the AC unit. Tom's Cove hasn't gotten the the 21st Century yet as evidenced by the campers' inability to make online reservations or even telephone reservations!! Onlyin person or by slow mail. They take no creditcards either. .....but the camping was great......

We stay at Tom's cove every year but this was th first time we went for the pony pinning and it was wonderful. We were right on the water so we could see from our campground. Many of the other campers do come onto your site to catch a look at the ponies but they asked and we expected it so it was fine. They are slowly updating all of the bath houses and have two large dog walking areas which is great. I love this campground.

We stayed here last year for the first time and loved it. The bathrooms are being replaced so once you found the new ones you were set. We are going back there this year for the pony round up and can't wait.

It was our firsdt time here, but we have two sets of friends that own permanent sites here andhad many good things about Tom's Cove. Well...they were right. We were camped in the 'A' Area of the park which is near the 500 ft pier on Assateague Channel. It was shaded by pine trees and the ground was covered with pines straw ( not dirt, rocks or leaves). The site was on the small side, but clean and very level. On the night of the Friday the 23rd, it rained hard for about 3 hours. We couldn't cook on the fire so we went into town for dinner. When we returned the CG was under about 3 inches of water. We thought DISASTER! But, since the soil is mostly sand, the water was gone in about an hour. And, since the sites where we were are covered in pine straw there was no mud. Plenty of wet towels and such, but they can be dried. The campstore was very big and very well stocked. Staff was friendly and helpful. Our site was near some older cinder-block bathrooms and showers. They were serviceable but clean. There are, however, some brand new showers just a short walk away near the camp store/office. Very nice. Big and clean. We used them once we found out about them. The pool was very nice. It was a medium sized pool but very clean and well maintained. The fishing pier sits in the water, parallel to the shoreline and it's about 500 feet long. We had 3 kids with us and they all thoroughly enjoyed fishing from the pier. If you fish from the Tom's Cove pier you do not need a license because the CG has one to cover all pier fishermen. Nice! The town of Chincoteague was very nice, as well. Quaint and unspolied, yet. There are a few beach supply stores in town but it looks as if the town intentionally keeps it low-profile. There were many good restaraunts in town as well as several ice cream parlors and an old-timey movie theater. There was even an ice cream truck that came through the CG each night. Cool! Also, Assateague National Seashore is a short 10 minute drive away and that was the hit of the trip. There was a $10 fee to get in but it was good for 7 days. There were plenty of ponies to see, wildlife to see and the beach. Unspoiled and clean. There was a 'lifeguarded' side and a not 'lifeguarded' side. They were right next to each other though. Biking trails, seashells and great waves. We all had a blast. We went every day. All in all, a great trip and CG. We will definately go back. Chincoteague (and Tom's Cove) are easy to get to. Go south from salisbury Maryland on US Hwy 13 until you cross the into Virginia. Signs for VA Hwy 175 are close and will take you the short to Chincoteague. Have a great time! We did and we'll be back.
