They are pricey because they are right next to the resort town of Ocean City where in season hotels and house rentals are also outrageous. The campgrounds are still a value compared to them . If you want a considerably cheaper alternative there is Assateague SP campground and the Assateague National Seashore Campground just a few miles from OC, but of course they do not offer the activities and amenities that Frontier town, Fort Whaley, and Castaways offer.

Not to mention, mosquito haven!

We stayed in Berlin at a hotel a few years back for a wedding. Nice interesting little town. We tend to look for places like Assateague over the big resorts. We do stay in some but Ocean City is not that appealing.

Berlin is a nice town. Also where "Runaway Bride" was filmed.

We've been going to Ocean City since I was a young kid. My opinions on it has changed dramatically. We rarely go into OC anymore. We find other things to do in the area. Like Berlin, for example as you mentioned.

Yeah the kids love OC but its a bit too hectic for me now. The older I get the less I like crowds and traffic.

Spent an evening in OC MD back in June while camping at Assateague. Had not been there in years. Unimpressed except for a couple of Restaurants on the south end even then pricey. Boardwalk OK but not exciting and same shops over & over.
Just how many Grains of Rice with my name do I need?

Just returned from a great week at Castaways, highly recommend this campsite.

Great facilities and staff, very pristine.

I share your thoughts on OC, we spent much of our time at Assateague, as well as visiting Berlin.
