A solid, muggy, bare-bones site
Nice, relatively quiet site near the road. Fire pit, but recommend bringing your own grill as the attached grill is mangled and unusable. Very convenient to local stores (Buck’s), the Assateague Surf Shop, and the big water park/commercial campground. There are goats, sheep, and cows across the road, which add some local color and chatter.
The conditions were very muggy with minimal breeze when we were there at the end of August, so be prepared. Bugs were not oppressive, but the humidity sure was until the temp dropped late at night. No water and minimal accoutrements means you had better bring anything you might want.
Overall, it was a solid camp site if you are going bare bones and don’t care that you aren’t fully secluded from a quiet rural road.
Great place for a beach weekend
Friendly owners and safe location. Even provided some split firewood for us. The closeness of the campsites to the road was concerning at first, but there was hardly any traffic on the road at all. The proximity to Assateague Island is great, especially when it’s near impossible to get a lot on the island unless you book far in advance. Ocean City is really close too.
This was a very enjoyable experience and I recommend camping here if you are looking for a few days in Ocean City or on the island on the cheap.
Great location and hospitality!
This site was just like advertised, but with the added bonus of astounding hospitality. We hiked all the way from Assateague State Park to the National Park, the beach was amazing, and had a comfortable place to come back to close by. I was surprised with how friendly and how much effort the host put in to making sure we were comfortable and had everything we needed.
We would definitely come back.
There was a nice flat area next to a brushy area with trees. The grass made the ground soft for our campsite. If you are not familiar with the climate you should take steps to repel ticks as they are bad after the mild winter.
Super close to assateague island!
Booking at Wade's Chance was the only way we were going to get to spend as much time in Assateague without getting a campsite reservation, so we did it. It's nice and close to the park and to the cute downtown of Berlin. But we left because we managed to nab a spot in the park at the last minute!
Jjmmy was really pleasant and very accommodating. I'm sure the stay would have been fine. My biggest concern was the bugs, but we had that everywhere we went!
Great for last-min backyard camping
Jimmy was very accommodating and communicative—a great host. There are two campsites, one in his backyard and another out front near a porta-potty. While initially a little off-putting to camp in someone’s backyard, we were left alone with plenty of space and with a great view of the stars. Do make sure you have bug repellant as the campsite behind Jimmy’s backs up onto a large preserve or field, so there are a pretty fair number of mosquitoes and other bugs.
