you’ve been looking for something “different” in summer
living, a place you could call your own, a place that’s
not far from home in miles but is a world away in
relaxation, you’ve found it. Buttonwood Beach is a
unique concept in campground living. The sites are sold
on a long-term 99-year renewable lease basis (we do not
offer any type of “transient” camping). Each site has
underground sewer, water, electric, telephone and cable
hook ups. One of the questions that most folks ask is
how much does all of this pampering cost? Yearly fees at
Buttonwood Beach are much less than you would pay for a
summer’s seasonal rental at most campgrounds. Our fees
last year were just over $2,200. They are based on a
sharing of the expenses by all of the members in the
park (which is why we use the phrase “condo camping”).
Our books are audited annually and the yearly fee is
subject to change annually depending on actual expenses
for the year. As a lessee, you are billed quarterly for
these charges. The only other expenses you would have,
aside from the original purchase price of the lease and
trailer, would be for propane,
insurance on your
trailer, and electricity for your site.
Open sandy beaches located on the shores of the Elk River, at the head of the Chesapeake Bay welcome you to the land of pleasant living here on Maryland’s famed Eastern Shore. This is prime boating country with easy access to all types of fun in the sun and on the water. Whether you prefer lots of horsepower or the wind to propel you across the waves, you’ll find the perfect place to set sail as you launch from one of our boat ramps. When your youngsters are tired of water sports they can have fun on the nearby playground equipment. Located right on the beach, our swimming pool beckons on a hot summer day.
During the summer months, our business office is open daily to pamper campers, handle inquiries, and try to assist in every way possible to increase your enjoyment during your stay with us. Located adjacent to our office, the Buttonwood Beach Convenience Store is open daily during the summer months for your convenience. Our store is full of all kinds of goodies - from snacks to sweets, gasoline for your boat, worms for fishing, ice cream, milk, bread and our ever popular Buttonwood t-shirts, hats and more! Don’t want to worry about paying when you buy? (Who wants to carry cash in their bathing suit?) No problem. Get a Buttonwood Beach store charge card - and be billed for your purchases once a month. Even the kids love to charge their purchases. (Don’t worry - you can limit their credit if you’d like!)
We want you to be sure that our resort is the right place for you and your family to enjoy your summer seasons. If you’re not certain, and would like to try us out on a short-term basis, some of our campers rent their units during the summer months. For a free copy of our rental list, please contact us. We welcome the chance to show you that the finest in “condominium camping” is at Buttonwood Beach.
