Why Not Acres

12 sites · Lodging, RVs, Tents17 acres · Frankford, DE
HORSES WELCOME!  Why not run your horse on the beach, then come to our campsites to relax for the rest of your day.  There is a fenced pasture positioned next to the sites so you can see your faithful friend enjoying some grass or hay.  We have a new Zinger 29' trailer set up with a bunk room and another bedroom, full kitchen and bathroom.  It can easily sleep six people.  If you have your own RV, we have a full hook up at the same area.  The pasture where your horse stays will also have hay, water and shelter with a run-in.  This is a sanctuary for our animals.  We have nine animals here, four horses (some minnies) and five donkeys (some minnies).  By staying here, you will be helping us to support our animals.  We are in Frankford, De which is close to all the beaches and parks.  There are many shopping adventures awaiting you, either outlets or upcycle stores.  If you just want to relax, there is a small pond out back stocked with bass and turtles.  We have 17+ acres but we only use the front five acres and leave the rest for the deer, foxes, eagles, hawks and whatever else shows up.  We believe this is Heaven on earth and would love to share it will you.  So please come, stay at our farm and relax.  We are here year round.

Historic Blueberry Lane Farm!

5 sites · RVs, Tents36 acres · Frankford, DE
Pitch your tent or park your RV on our historic 36-acre blueberry farm. Picnic tables, charcoal grills, and fire pits are located on lots. We  are a newly renovated farm that has an almost 60-year history. Very close to Delaware and Ocean City Beaches!  Our property is also  monitored by security cameras.Once owned by Tom Ryan and part of the 100+ acres of Ryan's Berry Farm, Kingsley Orchards now owns the middle 36 acres and market building of the historic farm. It was purchased at Sheriff Sale by Tony Morgan in June 2016 and 10+ months of extreme labor and renovation were required to bring the very neglected farm back to life.  Efforts paid off and the farm and market opened in June 2017 with a beautiful crop of blueberries and many multi-generational customers coming back with their children. The best outcome has been the opportunity to share growing food with children and helping them learn a love for outdoors and farming. Many of the customers remember their own grandparents bringing them to the farm! We had customers from age 1 to 89 picking blueberries. Meghan was able to retire from her state job in August to devote her full time and attention to the farm and family. Special accommodations and transportation options are  available to all customers! We also offer  a climate controlled restored marketplace for parties, events and several campsites on our farm.

Loblolly Landing SBY

3 sites · Lodging, RVs5 acres · Salisbury, MD
Just outside of Salisbury, five minutes from the highways and thirty minutes from OC, we're at the end of a closed road and surrounded by five acres of mixed pines. This rustic woodland hideaway is a perfect blend of seclusion and convenience. Relax in a vintage Airstream stocked with the works, chill out in a custom tiny Teardrop, or safely overnight in a private spot with your own camper. Spend some time outside. Listen to songbirds sing and watch squirrels scurry. Explore our gently maintained trails traversing both forest and farmland. Keep an eye out for deer, foxes, bunnies and more while you're here. Both camper BandB's have comfy outdoor setups with plenty of room to relax. Grill dinner under the trees with stars peaking through and absolutely do not miss the brilliant sunrises and sets from the end of the driveway. Trust us, you won't regret the early rise! Everything you need from the world is still close. We're 2 miles from Rt.50 and 5 miles from the Rt. 13 exits. Salisbury Regional Airport is almost in our front yard. The corner store for gas, snacks, sandwiches, beer and wine is at the head of our road. Go to the grocery store or pharmacy in 5 minutes or the hospital in 15 minutes. Head downtown or over to SU in 10 minutes and be on campus at UMES in just 20 minutes. All the fun stuff isn't far either. Spending a day at the beaches is an easy 30 minute trip. See wild ponies up close at Assateague Island. Stroll the boardwalk in Ocean City, ride the ferris wheel and chow down on Thrashers fries (say yes to vinegar). Keep cruising and party on at Dewey. Drive a little more and wander around quaint Bethany or shop 'til you drop at the Rehoboth outlets. There's so much more to the beaches than just beach. Aside from the coast there are plenty of closer things to get into. Pick a local brewery, any brewery! Test your palate at a local winery or find legit farm to table produce at our farmstands - the kind where there isn't a label saying it's so because it literally just came from the ground. Play a round of golf at one of the pristine courses. Take a ferry ride to Smith Island for a piece of their to-die-for cakes or have the best seafood of your life in Crisfield, seriously nothing compares to authentic Chesapeake Bay Crabcakes. You'll never be the same. The Eastern Shore is your oyster! Come stay at Loblolly Landing SBY while you experience all that it offers. We'd love to have you. ******************************** AIRPORT NEIGHBOR NOTE: The closed road out front is a primo place for plane spotting. Take camp chairs (just ask and we'll provide) along with some drinks down to enjoy the show! Regional air traffic is part of life here and doesn't spook the wildlife. Likewise, most people are not negatively impacted and find seeing the various planes exciting. However, if you are highly noise sensitive please take this into consideration before booking. ******************************** OTHER: There are security cameras outside throughout the outside grounds of Loblolly Landing for your protection and ours. Absolutely NO SMOKING or vaping in the campers or anywhere at all on the property. The closed road is a perfect place to take a stroll and a smoke should you so desire. Dogs considered, please message prior to booking with details for approval. ******************************** SERVICE DISCOUNT: We are thankful for those who serve others. Veterans, Military personnel, Law Enforcement, Firefighters/EMT's, Nurses and Teachers receive a 10% Discount on Airstream and Teardrop stays. Message us PRIOR to booking for a code to use at checkout.

The Draper Property

2 sites · RVs, Tents130 acres · Milford, DE
Tent, Teardrop, and camper van styles only because of low hanging branches on the camp road. No kids of any age, including teenagers. No porta potty is on-site this year, you must have a camp toilet. The property is 130 acres, a 66-acre field. This property is a forager's dream. I've got everything here. There is an old borrow pit we always called the 'dirt pit' and about 60 acres of mature forest with creeks. The 'dirt pit' was my favorite swimming hole in the 70s but the pines have grown up around it and now it looks like a pond in the woods. There are two ponds and the land in between is the perfect place to camp. That campsite is called 'Between The Ponds.' I added a second campsite, 'Top of The Pond', which overlooks the larger pond. I only have 2 campsites with plenty of space dividing them. 'Between the Ponds' is the best campsite in Delaware. Lots of wildlife. including possible screaming foxes in the middle of the night, tons of bald eagles and hawks, turkeys, deer, box turtles, snapping turtles, and snakes. Bring tick repellent. Very primitive camping... all you get is tables, chairs, and a fire ring. The property is close to town so there is some noise, but the camps (only 2) are very private.

The best camping near Trap Pond State Park guide

Overview

About

Immerse yourself (or at least your boat) in a wetland forest at Trap Pond State Park. The park is home to the northernmost natural stand of bald cypress in the United States. This unique ecosystem is home to rare and elusive birds, plus a diverse bounty of flora and fauna. The best way to explore the swamp is by canoe, kayak, or paddle boat. Get lost among the trees and become one with your inner Thoreau. There’s also a sweet trail around the pond, a nature center, playground, and shoreside campground—everything you need for a down 'n' dirty vacation at one of the First State’s first state parks.

When to go

The ideal time to visit Trap Pond State Park is during the spring and fall when the weather is mild and the natural beauty is at its peak. Summer offers a full bloom of activities, though it can be quite warm. Winters are less crowded but can be chilly, so prepare accordingly.

Know before you go

  • Check the park's website for any alerts or closures before your visit.
  • Ensure you have all necessary permits for activities like fishing or boating.
  • Wear appropriate footwear for hiking and bring insect repellent to ward off mosquitoes.
  • Remember to pack out all trash and leave the park as pristine as you found it.
  • Accessible facilities are available; inquire at the visitor center for more information.
