The campsites' amenities were newly installed last year in the entire campground. Some of the campsites pads were not wide enough, but the Park personnel were working to resolve that issue with the contractor. The hookups are too close to the site and are arranged oddly, in conjunction with the narrow site--it made opening the slide an interesting exercise. I have a 25' motorhome and a Mini Cooper--my site was just long enough to accommodate both, but I was able to park the car alongside the motorhome. The park does offer a parking lot for cars that cannot fit into the site. We camped at Lums Pond State Park in a Motorhome.

We stayed for two nights in November. The park is nice, although the sites were a little closer than I have camped in at other MD State parks. There is an amphitheater on the water, a nature center, and spots along the riverbank provide seats and cover from the sun while fishing--nice. The park staff were extremely friendly and helpful. You can really get your daily steps in by walking throughout the grounds, exploring.
Unfortunately, the only dump station was not working and campers had to go to Tuckahoe to dump tanks. But, I guess that could happen anywhere and Tuckahoe was on my way home, so it was not much of an inconvenience.
I would stay at Martinak Park again. We camped at Martinak State Park in a Motorhome.
There are strip malls on the way to the campground, including Walmart. Lots of places to eat and a couple of miles past the campground on Rt 404 is Vanderwende Farm Creamery, where you can buy homemade ice cream.

Nice, small, and quiet campground. The sites are well-shaded and trees separate the sites, providing some privacy. My motorhome is less than 25', so I have no problems maneuvering into any of the sites; however, some larger than 35' might have issues, as not all sites can accommodate large rigs. Some sites have electric, none have water, but water spigots are placed generously throughout the campground. There are also fire rings and picnic tables on the sites.
The bathhouse is clean and has showers.
There are trails for walking and horseback riding and a lake for fresh water fishing.
I camp at Cedarville when I need a break and don't want to travel far from home. We camped at Cedarville State Forest in a Motorhome.
If you want to take a sightseeing trip into DC, Cedarville is less than 30 minutes away from the Branch Avenue Metrorail station.
Stores (Target, Safeway food, Costco, 7-11), gas stations (Wawa, 7-11) and restaurants (McDonald's, Sonic, Cheddar's, etc.) are all within a 5-10 minute drive. There is a theater nearby, as well.
