We would never recommend camping here in August. We were literally eaten alive by mosquitoes. There were millions of them. Our children and ourselves were bitten terribly. I stopped counting at 25 bites on my son from his ankle to his knee on one leg. Camp fogger helped a little, but bug repellent spray and wipes with 30% Deet didn't even help keep them off of us. The campground was lovely and clean. The area was beautiful as well. The beach area was nice, but swimming was a bit to be desired. The jellyfish population was high and 4 out of 6 of us got stung by them, too. Deer roamed freely, it was a lovely place to see, but I'll never go back. We left 3 days early, too bitten to have a good time. My rating would have been a 5 had it not been for the mosquitoes.

I absolutly enjoy that dogs' beach!!! We camp with our dog like many other folks and it's hard to find a campground with a beach that allows dogs. It is seperate from the people's beach and much more quiet, surprisingly. We met some nice dog owners too!

I live within 40 minutes of Pt. Lookout State Park and had never been here camping until this year...what a mistake that has been! This is now our absolute favorite spring/fall campground. It would be our all-time favorite if it weren't for the palm-sized mosquitoes that inhabit the area during the warm months. We camp in the Tulip Loop, which is the only area that has full hook-ups. Prior to our arrival and right after we depart, the Camp Host prepares each site by carefully cleaning all debris and raking it down. The sites are very large in this area, so much so that you can barely see your neighbor through the trees. The water/electric sites in the Green Loop are terrific if you like to camp that way. They are right on the water, have a wonderful view, and have continuous breezes. The playground in that area is also great for the little ones. If you have paranormal interests, this place is certainly a hot spot. One part of the campground is located over the spot that used to house the small pox hospital during the Civil War. During the month of October there is a terrific Ghost Walk (www.spiritsofpointlookout.com) that is sponsored by the local Kawanis Club. It is a lot of fun with cider, stories, music, and so much more. Price is right too! The sites that are more apt to handle larger rvs are #63, #65, #69, #72, #79, and a few in the circle. All of the other sites in the Tulip Loop will easily hold a 30' camper. You will not be disappointed with this campground. Remember to bring your fishing poles, walking stick, insect repellent (for warm months), and bikes. The ground is flat and there's plenty to see and do.

The only thing that kept the rating from a 5 was the mosquitos and biting flys (though they were not as bad nearer the water out of the woods) and the amount of poison ivy that you had to be carefull of. We stayed in the full hookup Tulip Loop. The sites are spacious and wooded on fine gravel pads that keep the sand and dirt out of your RV. All sites have a nice fire ring with grill that we used to cook on. The 30 amp service was good as we had to run our AC all week due to heat and humidity. The roads are all paved. There is good crabing from the pier in Lake Conoy in the Hoffman loop. A sandy pet beach at the begining of the Causeway on the Bay side that we also used to cool down with our dog as was less crowded on weekends than the designated swimming beach on the Potomic River side. Fishing was also good off the Causway. Canoes and kyaks can be rented from the Camp Store. Day Trips can be taken to St Mary's City a recreation of the 1st Capital of Maryland in the 1600's. Pautexaunt Naval Air Base Museum and the Calvert Marine Museum on Soloman Island. All are within 25 miles of the park. We camped here in a Motorhome.

Living an hour away from this wonderful State Park, I'd never camped there previosly. It was the 'off season' and some features of the park were closed. Rain detered much of our activity outside, not visiting Fort Lincoln, and the museum was closed. No bugs during our visit, and they continued to spray Mon, Wed & Fri mornings. Tulip Loop is pet friendly and on the 'loop' itself, you are not far from the main road into the park, so you can hear traffic at about 5:30am. Clean, spacious, well designed sites made camping and privacy a joy. Nearby in the town of Ridge is the Ridge Town & Country Grocery store with paperback lending library, and nextdoor is an Ace Hardware, carrying just about everything. There are many local eateries, and major towns of Lexington Park and Leonardtown are not far either. Ice and Firewood are available at the campground office. There are laundry facilities onsite, as well as boat rentals, Smith Island Cruises, the Bay, Lighthouse and a designated swimming area. Great fishing pier and boat launch/marina also.
