Maryland campground bans seasonal RV stays

A popular Maryland county park, Breezy Point Beach & Campground, will see a big change in 2024. A “daily camping model” is being set in place, and seasonal camping is chopped.

Seasonal camping is chopped in favor of better chances for all

Calvert County Department of Parks & Recreation officials say the change at the park at Chesapeake Beach will give residents and visitors a better chance to book a campsite at Breezy Point.

Seasonal camping is chopped, and there are other changes in the works. Those making camping reservations will now have to do so online. Campsite availability is first-come, first-served. While there was a waitlist option for booking, that too, is gone. Replacing the seasonal option, campsites can be reserved for up to 14 days at a time. Campers can stay more than 14 days, but there must be at least a one-day break between reservations. Reservations for the 2024 season will open in February.

Six-month camping season

The Breezy Point Beach & Campground season is May 1 to October 31. Seated at the heart of the Chesapeake Bay, it’s about an hour from Washington, D.C. For more information on the campground, follow this link.

Russ and Tiña went from childhood tent camping to RVing in the 1980s when the ground got too hard. They've been tutored in the ways of RVing (and RV repair) by a series of rigs, from truck campers, to a fifth-wheel, and several travel trailers. In addition to writing scores of articles on RVing topics, they've also taught college classes for folks new to RVing. They authored the book, RV Boondocking Basics.

So campers will spend a night at Walmart every other week, then head back. Doesn’t seem to change the situation much.

Thank you, Russ and Tina! Looks like a great campground. Downside is you pretty much have to take I-495, the beltway around DC, to get there. We lived in the area and drove 495 for 27 years. I cannot imagine driving an RV with a toad, or pulling an RV on that road. I-95 between Richmond and DC is unpleasant at all times, but the beltway is “something else.” If you go there, I suggest that you drive a class B. Safe travels and have a good Thanksgiving. 🙂
