Maryland Is Open for Camping!
With many thanks to Governor Hogan and his team of advisors for recognizing campgrounds as essential businesses, it gives us great pleasure to announce that Maryland’s private campgrounds will be permitted to open Thursday, May 7th, at 7:00 AM.
Please keep in mind that because we are private businesses, you will need to contact each campground to confirm their schedule and plans.
We will still have to maintain proper health guidelines and procedures. While we are thrilled to be open, we need to be sure that we do it as safely as possible to protect our staffs, local communities and our campers. Thank you so much for your patience during the past weeks.
Welcome to Camping in Maryland
Maryland welcomes you! We’re famous for our sun drenched seashore, delectable blue crabs and beautiful boating waters, but Maryland’s landscape is actually quite diverse. Maryland’s Western region takes extreme recreation to a new level. Rapidly flowing rivers and rugged mountain trails provide year-round excitement. The mountain side of Maryland is an outdoor enthusiast’s dream, bringing trails and tradition together.
America’s past is a fresh memory amid Civil War sites and 18th century structures in the Northern Region of Maryland. Beautiful Main Street communities feature many inviting places to relax before exploring Civil War landscapes, antique shops and inspirational attractions.
The Central area of Maryland is full of energy and excitement, from our State’s captivating Capital, Annapolis, to our largest city, Baltimore. Pick from shows, shops, events, attractions and so much more. Here you can experience big city life and the quiet rolling hills of horse country.
River-born recreational pursuits give way to rich traditions, history and relaxing getaways in the beautiful and hospitable Southern Region, where Maryland’s story began. A boater’s wonderland, a sightseer’s delight and a seafood-lover’s dream come true.
The Upper Eastern Shore, just across the Chesapeake Bay Bridge, welcomes visitors to the gorgeous sunsets, quiet village retreats, wildlife sanctuaries and the country charm and tranquil way of life of this lovely region.
The Atlantic Ocean and Southern Eastern Shore area is home to miles of soft white sand beaches, and the East Coast’s “number one family resort”, Ocean City. Wild horses, history and hospitality greet you in this coastal resort area.
With its 12,407 square miles of land and water, everything about Maryland is colorful, unique and full of out-of-the-ordinary camping destinations. We offer four seasons of exciting and varied outdoor pursuits, fabulous shopping, award winning restaurants and wineries, museums, professional sports teams and attractions that vary from the 180' tall, air conditioned Capital Ferris Wheel to the birthplace of the Star Spangled Banner, Fort McHenry.
Whether you call Maryland home, or are just stopping by for a visit, please take the time to stay in a private Maryland Campground. Get away for a night, a week, or a season, and find out what we mean when we say we “pamper our campers”. Camping in Maryland just comes naturally!

Members Ban the Importation of Firewood
The Maryland Association of Campgrounds and
the Maryland Department of Natural
Resources’ Forest and Park Service have
joined forces in taking active measures in
the State’s effort to stop the spread of the
emerald ash borer by introducing a new
policy designed to prevent campers and other
visitors from bringing outside firewood into
campgrounds. Our members are notifying
campers of the restriction at the time of
reservation. Only firewood purchased on
location may be used.
