Campground Review #98: The Resort at Massey’s Landing near Rehoboth Beach, Delaware

Beach camping resorts are having a moment in the Mid Atlantic region, and this week we are reviewing another great option: The Resort at Massey’s Landing in Long Neck, Delaware about 15 minutes from Rehoboth Beach.

This brand new campground, built from scratch, is privately owned by the a company called Blue Water Development that also recently purchased Sunset Beach Resort and Chincoteague KOA in Virginia. It’s located on a peninsula bordered by the Rehoboth and Indian Point bays.

The Resort at Massey’s Landing comes by its name honestly, offering enough onsite amenities and activities to truly earn the resort moniker. The most important thing to realize before booking a stay here is that this is a bustling, busy campground so if you are looking for a quiet, peaceful, and private camping experience, this probably won’t fit the bill.

It did fit the bill for us, though, and we had a fantastic stay enjoying the pool, bay beach, and onsite restaurant and tiki bar.

Campsite Details

Almost all of the sites here are back ins, and will run you from $60-$105 depending on season, length of stay, and location within the resort. In our perspective, it’s waterfront or bust when booking here. Make sure to listen to the episode to hear our specific campsite recommendations.

Amenities and Activities

You could easily spend your entire vacation without leaving the campground property, especially with all the delicious breakfast, lunch, and dinner options. Additional campground amenities include…

  • Heated pool
  • Adult pool with swim up bar
  • Private Beach on the Rehoboth Bay
  • Dog beach
  • Boat cruises that leave right from the campground dock
  • canoe, paddleboard, kayak, golf cart, and bike rentals
  • Happy Jack’s and The Jackspot restaurants
  • RV Storage and Valet option
  • Dog walking services
  • Well-stocked camp store and packaged goods store

The Resort at Massey’s Landing also has themed activity schedules from April through October as well as fitness classes and other scheduled recreation.

Regional Highlights

The Resort at Massey’s Landing offers a complete concierge service, connecting campers with the best experiences in the area. We enjoyed our Farm Tour run by Delmara Discovery Tours. Other area highlights include…

  • Dogfish Head Brewery
  • Historic downtown Lewes
  • Cape Henlopen State Park
  • Rehoboth Beach and boardwalk
  • Bethany Beach

If you are thinking of visiting The Resort at Massey’s Landing, book now. This campground is truly the hot, new spot in the Mid Atlantic Region and you will have to book far in advance to get the best spot.

Campground Review #97 Sunset Beach Resort in Cape Charles, Virginia

Located on the eastern shore of Virginia, Sunset Beach Resort is a fantastic addition to camping in the Chesapeake Bay region. On this episode of Campground of the Week, we discuss our five-day visit to this new campground where we spend tons of time relaxing on the beach and exploring the surrounding area.

Sunset Beach Resort is owned by Bluewater Development, a private company that also manages Massey’s Landing in Delaware and the Chincoteague KOA in Virginia. From what we have seen so far, they are doing a great job bringing the hotel resort point of view to their campground properties.

Campground Details

Sunset Beach Resort is a very large campground with several hundred sites mostly for transient visitors. However there were a few rows of seasonal sites as well. Most of the sites are back in, but tune in to here our suggestions for the best four sites at the campground (rare pull thrus and easy to miss on the map!!!). Prices are reasonable for beachfront camping, ranging from $43 to $85 dollars depending on the season and day of the week.

This campground is a true resort property with onsite beach, pool, and full-service restaurant and bar area. Other amenities include:

  • campground store and gift shop
  • breakfast and lunch cafe
  • playground
  • new, clean bathhouses and laundry facilities
  • golf cart rentals
  • daily activities and themed weekends

Regional Dining and Attractions

We truly enjoyed our time exploring the surrounding Cape Charles region as well. Listen to hear more about our top travel highlights including…

Campground Review #93 Oceanside Beachfront RV Resort in Charleston, Oregon near Coos Bay

Oceanside Beachfront RV Resort is the type of campground that you leave with a heavy heart, knowing that you won’t find any other place quite like it on your journey. Camping on the beach is certainly a pleasure like none other…but camping on the beach along the southern Oregon Coast? Well, that’s just a dream come true.

On this episode of Campground of the Week, we are sharing all the details from our stay at the Oceanside Beachfront RV Resort in Charleston, Oregon just south of Coos Bay. This is a paired travel episode, so make sure you listen to RVFTA episode #154 to hear about all the hikes, lighthouses, day trips, and restaurants we recommend in the area.

Campground Details

Oceanside Beachfront RV Resort is about 20 minutes south of Oregon Dunes National Recreation Area and about 30 minutes north of Bandon. Portland is four hours away, so this is a great destination for a long weekend escape from the city.

The campground is owned by Highway West Vacations, which has properties in California, Oregon, Washington, and Utah. This was our second stay at a Highway West Vacations property and we were just as impressed with the level of customer service and attention to guest experience.

It’s a smaller campground with only about 60 RV sites. Additional accommodations include safari tents (which we stayed in!), cabins, and vintage RV rentals. Listen to hear all the details on our magical stay in the safari tent!

There are a mix of back ins and pull thrus, but you will probably want to choose your site on based on location. Check out the campground map to decide if you would prefer to be right near a beach entrance or in a more private site that backs up against the coastal cliffs.

The prices for RV sites range from $54-$68 depending on the season and the day of the week. Oceanside Beachfront RV Resort is open year round, and if you are visiting during the summer you will probably want to make a reservation. The campground was sold out during our stay in July.

Activities and Amenities

The campground has all the basics:

  • clean restrooms and showers
  • laundry facilities
  • cable
  • wifi
  • well-stocked campstore

But it also has some super-duper special offerings, like a crab cleaning and cooking station, complete with pot and propane provided. How do you catch the crabs? Why, just use one of their crab nets available for loan from the campground!

We love on-site dining at a campground, and the Coos Bay Crab Company is one of the best we have ever experienced. The fish and chips are divine, and we could enjoy the clam chowder bread bowl for dinner over and over again.

Make sure to listen to RVFTA episode #154 Greetings from the Oregon Coast to hear other recommendations from the area!

A huge thank you to our podcast sponsors for supporting weekly content for all our camping and RVing fools:

We’ll see you at the campground!
