When I was a stay at home mom I tried my hand at homesteading. Then I realized it's really hard work to parent and farm at the same time! Today I still have grapes blueberries and figs but that's about it. I currently operate a pet sitting business and find myself busy and satisfied working with cats, dogs, chickens, and occasionally reptiles!  If you need a pet sitter while you are at Fools Grove, feel free to ask!

I parked my 30' RV on her front lawn. Kept it attached to the truck. I did not have to level anything. Elizabeth is a great host. She had a little outdoor potty and coffee pot, toaster oven and refrigerator in her garage.

Camping for Bike week with 2 large
This was my first experience with Hipcamp and bringing our two mastiff lab mix puppies! Liz was just super amazing! We had our toy hauler and our motorcycle with us. Spectacular location and just so easy to Zip over to Delmarva bike week events!! Achilles and Haus loved their visits with Elizabeth. Next visit we may have to take her up on her pet services because her reviews for that are amazing also.

Many amenities. Great host.
Wow, we would love to stay here again. The host Liz is an absolutely wonderful person and very helpful. She took the time to show us around and pointed out every amenity. Liz definitely has thought of every detail. We needed a place to camp on very short notice. Liz responded quickly with confirmation. There are some houses nearby, but we felt very secluded. It was not a problem at all for us. Restaurants and gas are a short drive away. We very much enjoyed our time here and will be back. Thank you!

Fools Grove Camp was a great spot to stay on my family's vacation to the Eastern Shore. Liz greeted us at the driveway upon arrival and gave us a tour of the facilities. We were allowed to pitch our tent and canopy in a large field behind her house and had access to a kitchenette in the garage. We were also given Farm Fresh eggs! We opted to pay a few extra dollars for some bundles of firewood and had a roaring fire going all evening. Granted the property is in a residential area, it was quiet (minor street noises as cars passed), and Liz gave us a ton of privacy while still offering her assistance, if needed. I highly recommend this campsite. It was only an hour away from the ocean and nowhere close to the hassle of booking a busy hotel!

Excellent host & awesome camping
Elizabeth has a great property and an AWESOME hipcamp set up!! She's a very helpful and kind host and she goes out of her way to make sure you enjoy your stay. The garage setup with the little kitchenette is pretty cool and very well done. There is a chemical toilet for use that is very clean. There is a hose where you can get water and a beautiful flat large area to camp in!

Loved our stay at Fool’s Grove! We went on a last-minute girls trip to Assateague/Rehoboth beach and were lucky enough to find Fool’s Grove. Liz was very sweet from the minute we arrived. She showed us her edible landscaping and told us all about her plans for the property. If only we had known to come a few weeks ago when everything is in bloom! But she promises her garden will be bigger and better next year, so we’ll definitely be back to check it out ;) Be advised, this site is in a somewhat residential area. Site 2 afforded us a reasonable amount of privacy, but we could still hear traffic from the neighbors and the main roads during peak hours. We also had access to the bonfire to cook dinner, but unfortunately the wood that was provided was wet. Of course, this isn’t the host’s fault, (she set aside MOUNTAINS of fallen twigs, branches, etc and even brought us some fire starters she had made!) and as we found out, it gets VERY humid/dewy at night. Anyway, there are several convenience stores VERY close by for food/liquor/firewood runs in case you forget anything or decide your night of stargazing deserves a little more wine to go with dinner! :)

Excellent choice for a stopover
Elizabeth answered all my questions prior to booking and our arrival. The site was the perfect place to stay for our visit to Assateague and Chincoteague. A coffee station was also setup prior to our arrival, which was a definite plus. The toilet was clean each morning and the grass was freshly mowned prior to our arrival. We booked site 1 and 2 and ended up using only site 2 just for comfort and proximity to each other. The place had plenty of space to setup both of our tents, which are a medium size (each tent for 6-8 people), but smaller than I had thought. One thing to note is that the first night was a bit loud, perhaps because it was a Saturday. The second night was just fine. Overall, I would recommend Elizabeth's place and would stay here again!

Elizabeth was very thorough and prompt with communication. She's a very sweet host and joined us for a lovely conversation when we were grilling. It's a lovely big camping space, very safe neighborhood. It wasn't very private though, fairly close to the highway and had a lot of light from neighboring homes. Campsite was as described, with a chemical toilet and hand washing station and fire pit with a few chairs. I would recommend this if you're looking for something not too far from assatugue and just need a place to set up your tent :)

My stay at Fools Grove Camp was great! Liz was so thoughtful & friendly- I wish we could’ve interacted more, but we kept distance being in a pandemic & all. The space was quiet & safe, and before I left I picked some of the most delicious blueberries! I would definitely stay here again if I ever find myself up that way again.

Pros: Elizabeth is a lovely host -- she was SO flexible and accommodating with our delayed arrival (due to a travel snafu, we didn't arrive til 9pm). She was incredibly kind, and even set up lighting to help us pitch our tent in the dark! Wow. The site itself is lovely and very well-kept. When we woke up, lots of different birds were chirping ... I loved seeing the fruit on the pear tree in the orchard. Cons: We experienced the site as somewhat noisy. Traffic noise from a nearby road was prominent. A group of men outside the house next door were talking, laughing, and fixing a flat tire between 11pm and midnight. You are in the middle of a residential neighborhood ... I recommend earplugs!

My friend and I had a lovely stay at Elizabeth's place. We camped around the back of the property at site 2, which is more private from the road. It is quiet and nicely kept, with a wonderful little orchard and lots of native plants. We appreciated the Covid precautions, low contact, masks worn, etc. A very pretty, easy 45 minute drive from Bethany Beach. Thanks so much, Elizabeth!

Great place.
We reserved at the last moment because of corona must c1ampgrounds weren't accepting tent campers however she confirmed our booking in less than 3 hours she was accommodating in everyway. This was our first time ever using hipcamp so we were a little weary and sketched out but she put our minds at ease right away we would definitely camp here again. Thank you so much!

We had a great time at Fool’s Grove! Elizabeth was really accommodating when we had to arrive late, and was such a welcoming host. The campsite was in a field surrounded by trees, so there is privacy. There is also a fire pit with extra brush that we used to have a bonfire. My friends and I stayed for two nights and had an amazing time. The property has a tree grove and plants, so you get to wake up to birds singing and the sounds of nature. Would definitely come again!

Elizabeth is a very cordial host and her site proved to be great! My wife and I were looking for a place to stay while we visited the Assateague and Chincoteague Islands (highly recommended if you haven't been there). Elizabeth's place was an awesome location for that. It was a buggy at our site so do make sure you have insect repellent. Even though we did not spend much time at the site, we enjoyed the nature and privacy found there.

If you drive the backroads to Fools Grove Camp, you will be treated to a view of beautiful farms and large expanses of fields on both sides of the road. Fools Grove Camp can accommodate both tent campers and camper vans/vehicles. There is an area to the side of Liz's house for your vehicle, which is where we parked. There is also a large fire pit in this area that is available for you to use. It was filled with tree trimmings while we were there! Back behind the host's house is a small fenced in backyard where she has peas growing on the swing set! In the open space behind the fenced in yard you will see a solar panel and a run of grapes along with a solitary blueberry bush. This area is for tent campers and can easily fit two different groups with plenty of privacy for all. You also feel much further from the road than you actually area and the property is quite pretty. Liz your host is very friendly and eager to make sure you are comfortable. Salisbury is only 6 miles away and offers restaurants, breweries, grocery stores, and anything else you should need. We recommend a stay at Fools Grove Camp if you are in the area!
