After a great holiday on the Jersey shores, we met some new friends and are trying to boook our 2013 summer holidays with them. Castaways in Maryland was brought up, looks good, just would like to hear some feedback from others.

Great place, just keep in mind, 3rd or 4th person, is extra $12 per person per day (adults).

Just got back a few days ago from Castaways. I thought the location was fantastic and the park was ok. We found more than a few rude young employees there. Most of the older employees were very nice. They have there own private beach that my 11 year old really enjoyed. Tiki bar was a win. Very good Bahama Breeze . Like another poster said I did feel nickel and dimed. My 2 kids cost us $8.00 a day extra per kid. Thats insane if you ask me.
I think next time we may go 5 miles farther down the road to Assateague Island Park.

It's a great place. We used to go 4 times a season. However, they have started nickle and diming you to the death. Awning facing water? + $5 Close to the pool? + $5 End lot? + $5 More than two dogs? + $4 per day

If you are in Island Oasis - there is a Tiki Bar there. So music and singing until 11 pm. The general public can get in to the Tiki Bar. So you have ppl who aren't even camping there.

Like I said, it's a great place and we love it. But since they started adding all the extra fees, we haven't gone. I just can't see paying close to $100 a day.

If you are going in Sept, they have a big craft show in OC. I think it's usually the 3rd weekend, but not sure.


Whatever hits the fan will not be evenly distributed.

We just got home last night from a week's stay at Castaways ...this is our second time there - we went once to Frontiertown. I agree that it's gotten expensive but yet all of us want to go back There's so much to do there that we didn't spend as much "extra" money so I guess it all evened out. The kids love the things to play on in the water and the fishing and crabbing right from the pier. We took the free shuttle to Ocean City but bought the week's pass at Assateague National Seashore for $15 so we could drive ourselves to the beach (2 families, 4 kids, lots of stuff!) We had no problems with any of the employees - the ones we interacted with were friendly and helpful ... we liked our site - it was a back in with plenty of room. It's definitely a busy campground. Sites would open up and in a few hours someone new would be there!

We are headed to Castaways in October (after the rates drop) This will be our first time but we have been to Frontiertown several times and always enjoyed it.

Castaways is a nice park, However they have lots of rules and lots of fees.
The deal breaker for me is they have breed restrictions, and do not allow me to bring my dog so I go elsewhere.

WE have camped in the National Park part of Assateague and loved it there. No hookups though. I want to check in to the State Park part - I think they have some loops with electric. It's just too hot down there without the a/c. I have to remember to make reservations earlier for next year. I waited too long this year and everything was booked.
