  • REVIEW – First and foremost, know that there are NO services here. Make sure when you make a reservation that you pick a camping loop that allows generators to run or prepare to use your solar panels. Generators area allowed all day but quiet time is 10:00 pm – 6am. No generators allowed between those hours. If you want to be comfortable here I highly recommend “off peak” season, aka: cool weather.  Also, be aware that there are wild horses here not tame horses put to pasture, we’re talking wild as in they take care of themselves and have been on the island for three hundred years. In a word they are magnificent. They are aggressive to the point of stealing food off of bbq grills and charging at people. If you get caught feeding them it is a $100 fine.
  • As far as what to expect here? It is as pristine as it can be. The beaches are amazing, the views are spectacular. Shopping is 10 miles away but it seems closer. Ocean City and the OC boardwalk are ten miles away as is the closest laundromat (Mr. Bubbles)
