Are you longing for a camping vacation by the coast, where you can look out over the open, seemingly never-ending water, enjoy all sorts of seashore activities, and just be at the mercy of the weather for a while? If so, the first thing you need to do is book an RV in Somerset County so that you can go camping at Janes Island Campground. As the name suggests, this RV park is located in Janes Island State Park, which means that you’ll have access to fishing, boating, and paddling as well as many trails - both on land and on the water. Take in the spectacular views of the salt marshes and beaches that attract many a bird, fish, and crab and just be still for a bit.
When RV camping at Janes Island Campground, you can bring the family, your pets, and even a big group - everyone’s welcome here. Enjoy the playground, pavilions, as well as the picnic table, fire ring, and lantern post that come with each site, which are pull-through and have full hookups with 30 amp service. There are restrooms, showers, laundry facilities, and a dump station as well as a camp store at this RV campground, so you’ll have all the comforts you could ever wish for.
The surrounding area isn’t too shabby, either, not with the absolutely astounding views of the Chesapeake Bay, in which you’ll find Smith Island along with many recreation opportunities. Do some crabbing, go on a water adventure, and check out some local heritage before going on a cruise where you’ll get the freshest seafood you’ve ever tasted. You can also visit nearby Crisfield, see what’s happening in Pocomoke City or Princess Anne, or even visit the large cities of Baltimore and Washington - anything is possible when you get a camper rental near Janes Island Campground.
You’ve seen it from a distance, but now it’s time to actually visit Martin National Wildlife Refuge, part of Smith Island. This place is truly magical, whether you love the ocean or if it’s bird watching that makes your heart beat faster. With panoramic views of the Chesapeake Bay in every direction, hike among tidal marsh, creeks, and coves while looking at the thousands of both migratory and nesting birds such as long-tailed ducks, tundra swans, oystercatchers, and black ducks. If you don’t have a list of birds to cross off already, you’d better start working on one.
If you want even more coastal recreation and wildlife, then get into your motorhome rental and head to Assateague Island National Seashore. This large area really has it all - if you’re at all interesting in fishing, crabbing, or stunning beaches, wetlands, and dunes, that is. Go on a tour guided by a ranger, take a little kayak trip, or just walk around this fantastic environment that so many animals call their home. See beautiful birds, try to spot a seal, or admire the wild ponies that roam this outstanding island.
Should you want to mix it up a bit and experience some leafy forests made up of loblolly pine, mixed pine-hardwood, and bottomland hardwood, then off to Pocomoke State Forest you go. Much of this area used to be farmland but is now a place full of excellent opportunities for some outdoor recreation. Hike past the gorgeous trees or head to the swamps to spot wildfowl - perhaps you’ll see a deer and a wild turkey, too.
This area has a whole lot of history; park your motorhome rental in Crisfield and take a walk around if you want to learn more about it. Start with the J. Millard Tawes Museum, where you can see and explore various exhibits that will tell you about the maritime past of the town. There’s a little bit about natural history, the crab and oyster industries, shipbuilding, and decoys in the mix. If you’re intrigued by the decoys, then visit The Ward Brothers Workshop, where the genius brothers transformed the world of carving.
The town of Crisfield doesn’t just have a lot of heritage, but it’s very eventful as well. Depending on when you go, you’ll be able to attend a spring yard and art sale, the Strawberry Festival, or several other occasions that can be enjoyed by the whole family. Have breakfast with Santa in the winter, or stick around for one of the many crab-themed events, such as the Annual Soft Shell Festival or the J. M. Tawes Crab & Clam Bake.
Unless you don’t really like crabs that much, you have absolutely no reason not to book an RV near Janes Island Campground right this second, so hop to it.
