"Own your campsite at your own risk @ INDIAN ACRES"

For many years I owned a property at the year round Indian Acres campground of Chesapeake Bay in Earleville, Md. While living there for about 14 years I contracted to have a house built on what this community called their lots “Fun Steads”. This community existed off annual dues -- the dues included the cost of water and membership to all amenities in the campground. Property taxes are paid to the Cecil County Treasurer and the fee was nominal depending or how many lots an owner owned and the type of permanent structure situated thereon. The Cecil County Commissioners tried to evict the property owners awhile ago and they tried to curtail the owners’ access to their properties. This is a beautiful location but if the county government decides to bring this same issue up in the future – it is NOT worth the investment to deal with this potential ongoing scenario.

The services you get for your dues are:

• 24-Hour Security
• Fishing Ponds
• Boat Ramp & Loading Dock
• Picnic Area & Playground
• Clubhouse
• Pools - Olympic & Children's
• Game Room
• Tennis Courts
• Basketball Court
• Seasonal Activities
• Duck & Goose Hunting Blinds
• Year-round Bathhouses
• Convenience Store
• Beach
• Community Building
• Trash Dumpster Area
• Chesapeake Bay Access

HOWEVER BUYERS BEWARE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Properties can take YEARS to sell and in this type of situation they typically DO NOT appreciate in this type of business deal!!!
