Just got home from camping in this swamp. We camped in a pop-up for 6 nights in one of the electric only sites. While on paper it looks like an ideal place to set up base camp for an ideal Washington DC vacation, get the real skinny on this place. It is one of the most poorly maintained campgrounds I have camped at in years. We made sure to book our reservations well in advance (Feb for our late May trip), asked the guy to get us a good spot, we got the worst one at the bottom of a drainage ditch. It rained two nights before we got here, and our site never did dry out. We asked to be moved and there was no way they would accommodate us, even though we were pretty much alone in the campground the entire week. One: If you have small children beware no one seems to respect the fact that it is a campground, they drive like its an open road. Two: Trash can only be deposited at the dumpsters. Three: The greatly advertised large swimming pool is only open 3 days a week for 4 hours a day. We started calling our site the swamp, even found a stow-away frog in our camper. It would be ill advised to even give this place a first glance, much less a second.
