  1. If I want to bring my RV, is there a place to park that you can suggest as I would like to sleep in it given that I live close to Baltimore and certainly will not be driving back at night.
    if there is a place close to the hotels, that would work great cause then I can use the shuttle.

    1. Try the marina right next to Tiki Bar. I think they are renting to RVs. Unsure of the name of Marina

    2. I’m sure you could park it at the Walmart parking lot in California and then get an Uber to and from Tiki across the bridge! There is a campground right there, but it’s military only.

    3. To AJ try calling the local hotels, they may let you park the RV in there respective parking lots. Good luck

  2. Campgrounds near the bar isn’t military only.
    It’s DOD accessible if reservations are made in advance. Probably too late to inquire now.
