This is a huge park, with easy access to DC by rail. The sites are pretty close together. We didn't have the best of sites, and the wifi was iffy. - Calteri

I see why people love this campground. It's clean, has lots of amenities. But the sites are short (we have a 39 ft fifth wheel). We had to park the truck with part of it on the small grass strip between sites. Your door sort of sees the neighbors sewer. It's convenient to Metro stop. - jcpjane

I can't say enough good things about this park. It was one of the nicest RV parks we've ever stayed in. Every convenience you can think of. We stayed for several days while visiting the monuments and museums in Washington. The staff are very professional and friendly. There is a 4:00 sightseeing meeting on weekdays that is informative about what to see and do in the area. Local buses run every few minutes and stop in the park to transport you to the train station - takes you to downtown Washington in only a few minutes. We also took a night tour of the city that was arranged by the park. Our site was level and had good cable and wifi. Bath houses (very nice and clean) are located throughout the park and there were plenty of trash containers. Another nice thing is that they don't charge you if you have to check out early as other parks will do. This is the closest park to the D.C. area and I recommend it to anyone. - farmboy25

We spent 5 nights here, going to Washington DC every day for tourist reasons. This is an incredible bargain as it is about 10 miles away from DC, and only about 2 miles to the Greenbelt Metro station. The first night we were there we were by ourselves at the end of the campground, the grass was about a foot high, and my wife said it felt creepy. The next day they mowed the grass and over the time we were there, more people came in to camp. There are no hookups, but we were fine in our self contained motor home. It rained a lot while we were there, when we left the dump station was flooded so we couldn't dump. We didn't look at the restrooms. - Russell G

Thick trees in serious need of trimming. Interior roads very tight, sites paved but many unlevel, and dry camping only. 1 shower stall for men in all of D loop, and that needed cleaning. Never saw the camphost, maintenance crew drove around but never saw them get out and do anything. Rain created muddy mess, garbage strewn about and not addressed. - rvrrat520

This is of course a NP campground. It is a little bit of heaven in a very large city. Like most NP campgrounds it is in need of a lot of repairs and updates, but if it were not a NP it probably won't even be here. I'm sure the property values in the area would make such a large section of land out of the range of most RV parks. In fact the only other RV park in the area charges $70 a night and that would have been way over our heads to stay at. There are trees everywhere and except for the faint noise of the busy highways on all sides you would think you were way out in the country. Those busy highways are what you have to take to get here but with patience and careful driving it wasn't as hard as I thought it would be. The roads inside the CG are a little rough and in need of repair. The sites could be a little larger and a little more level but we found one that would fit our 40' MH. There were picnic tables at every site but the fire rings were old and falling apart if they were even there at all. You are only 1 1/2 miles from the train station that takes you to downtown DC but we drove our car and after finding a hens teeth parking space we spent a wonderful day walking the DC Mall area. There were very few people the so it was easy to use the one shower in our loop but it would be difficult when it is busy. Most sites are back in but there are a few pull-through. The reservation system is fairly accurate in describing the size and levelness so if it says slightly unlevel you should believe them. Water was available close by and there is a dump station. The small visitors center was staffed by very helpful Park Service and volunteer people who directed us on ways to get around the city. Of course being in the city the cell and internet signal were very good. I would highly recommend this great CG for anyone with a desire to visit the Capital of the US. - rhianna

Very nice park with lots of elbow room. We were in #24 which is on a corner. The nearest RV to us was at least 50 to 75 feet away. The park is clean and they make everyone adhere to the rules (no parking on grass, no junk around, etc) which makes for a pleasing appearance. There was no wifi out where we were, electric was stable, water pressure was fine, and Verizon signal was 4G with 1 and 2 bars (not real strong). There are paved roads and concrete pads with gravel patios. Each patio has a fire pit and picnic table. The commissary and exchange were very nice. Here's our 2 complaints: First are the gates. The gates at the entrance and exit of the park are a pain. If you're on a military base where you are carded before entry, why do you need the gates? Second is Wifi/Hotspot. I called Verizon because my hotspot was worse than dial-up slow and normally it has very good speed. I was told that because of the area (between DC and Baltimore) the tower congestion is such that at certain times of the day it slows down to a crawl. That being the case, the park should have wifi repeaters. All in all we really enjoyed our stay at Camp Meade. - jomark

We've been here a month with a couple more weeks to go. This is a very nice park. Spacious lots, very nice laundry and shower building with a couple break room/library/game areas. Lots of trees but probably ? to ½ of sites are possible for satellite reception. Overall very quiet, except for the base special of reveille at 0630 over the base loudspeakers. Earplugs are useless to counteract, but we got used to it. Better than train whistles or traffic noise. They don't do it on the weekends.
They don't have wifi or cable, though I understand they're working on that right now.
Only downside is there's been a bit of musical spots. Their reservation software doesn't optimize the spots to minimize moves, so we moved twice in a week, but spent almost a month in the current spot. Seemed like it could be minimized since it was mostly people already there moving around. When we extended, the person we dealt with in the office made it so we didn't have to move again, but the experience/interest level of the staff varies.
This is certainly the best value in the DC area. We will be back in the spring for sure.
Rate based on monthly rate. - Seb

Very nice campground. Sites are big with plenty of space between them. I like the fact the grass gets mowed regularly. Good option for the DC area. We would do so again. - rwarner22

We stayed for 10 days and got weekly rate for first week, then daily. We wanted to stay longer, but they are booked in advance on weekends for Halloween activities. Location is excellent for visiting family, so we want to come back for a month next fall, but they won't take the reservation more than a month in advance, in case they have the opportunity to rent the space long-term. We get the impression that they are trying to transition into a trailer park instead of a campground, and that they don't really want campers like us but will take us if there is a vacant space. Very disappointing, as there is nothing else available in this immediate area. We like it here and would definitely come back, but it's hard to plan when they won't take our reservation. I rated Ramblin' Pines as 7 for this reason; otherwise, I would have rated it as 10. - SheriRS

Stayed 17 days, received weekly rate. Campground got a lot of business on the weekends and activities are planned. The camp staff was very friendly and helpful. The roads a little winded off the exit but navigable. Taking Hwy 97 off I 70 allows you to make a left turn into a lieu of taking Hwy 94. - bkboren

I struggled where to give my rating. Based on a few things I have given a 6 due to 1. they put us on 1X (don't take this site!), it is right beside the entrance and office and the busiest place in the park; there were I'm sure other sites they could've given, we were right beside the park host (really not sure why, this is an rv park with an office), their site should be 1x! 2. they have an entrance gate with a wooden bar that swings up, it is only activated by a staff member who sits in a cart a 100 yards ahead by the office; so if he's gone potty? you don't get in!! stupid system. And $62 per night is way too much for this park. The roads inside are easy to drive if you get a site further in. Hookups were good but no cable on this site, a staff member had to split off from a site behind us. All sites are gravel and fairly wide. - North America in 90 days

I almost didn't make reservations because we would be arriving on a Sunday in early May. Glad I did because the park was full. We read all the great reviews about the park entrance and had no problem with the approach to the campground. If you are very organized you can get a senior citizens pass well in advance and save quite a bit. Monday was a different day in the park. Trails empty of people and the park quiet. We stayed here because of the proximity to BWI airport. The drive to pick up our family was easy and uneventful. - travelnurse

The park is very shaded with black top roads and level graveled sites. As with most Maryland parks no water on the site. If you are lucky you can get a site close to a water spigot and run water to fill your tank with a long hose. In this case we were there only for two days so we did okay. Fire pit and picnic table were on the site.
We arrived west bound and went through the tunnel. Our height requirement was 10.5 feet so we cleared the tunnel height clearance of 11.1 feet. Not having been here before we didn't see any signs as to location of the campground; had to stop a ranger to ask directions. A couple of signs would have helped. Also the entrance was somewhat confusing at night after closing. You have to enter the exit to enter the code and go about 100 feet to the camping sites entrance and enter the same code again. This was a little redundant I thought. The lower rates for the camping fee is for senior citizens of Maryland, they enjoy about a 40% discount. All things considered, a very nice park. At&T was good. - Nautilus

Loved this park. A little difficult to get in and out of but it was worth it. Be very careful on your approach to the park. One entrance has a very low bridge and most RVs can't get in. Call the park for directions. The road down to the campgrounds themselves is very steep, just go slow and be careful. Camp hosts were great, sites very clean. The sites are nicely spaced and shaded. Good walking all through the park. A walk down to the river a must. - The Sandbox

We stayed here with our Stockade group. There are only two large open field sites available. We stayed at site 1 which is closest to the bathrooms. There is a water spigot near the restrooms but there are no shower facilities. Each site has a fire ring, picnic tables, and a nice new BBQ and a large wooden cooking type area built next to it. It even has hooks for your lantern. The rangers were nice and came out to check on us a few times and the park is great. The disk golf course and hiking trails were a big hit. We would stay here again. - Cfamily

This is the fourth campground / RV Park we've stayed at in the DC area. $51 for an electric only site is expensive even for this area. The campground's D loop is the only one with electric service, and has water spigots along the road every few sites. This loop has some sites that can handle big rigs, but some sites are only suitable for small RVs. Most sites are unlevel; we needed three wood blocks under each of our rear wheels and more under our jacks, so you probably won't be able to rely just on your jacks. The campground is heavily wooded which is lovely and gives lots of privacy between sites, but also means it's dark inside the RV even during bright sunny days. Interior roads are heavily wooded and some tree scraping was unavoidable. There are a few walking trails through the woods which were great for walking our dog. There are two bath houses, one in E loop and one in C loop. They were reasonably clean but full of webs and bugs in the corners. While the water was hot and pressure was good, the shower stalls were tiny with no shelves to hold your toiletries, and share a changing room separated from the rest of the bathroom by a curtain. There's an electronic gate at the entrance to the park, and when you check in they give you the code to get in any time. AT&T and Verizon both worked fine. Access to I-270 is very quick and easy. We'll likely stay here again because it's the closest park for visiting family. If it wasn't for the very unlevel sites and high price, we'd give Little Bennett a higher rating. - LifeRebooted

Be prepared to clean your campsite upon arrival, one of the worst we have experienced and way overpriced for the level of service and amenities provided. Staff was fantastic but appears to be poorly managed. Campground is in desperate need of basic maintenance and upgrades. - J K M

Nice county park, very heavily wooded, 30 or 50 amp power only on D Loop sites. Water available from spigots, not at each site. No sewer on site, but good dump station at exit. Laundry available at interpretive center. Pretty good access to major roads, not far from a metro station.
This is an excellent alternative to the outrageously expensive campground at I-95 and I-495. We will definitely stay here again. - wandrr

Very bad sites down back. Had to pull all the way to right side and up to front edge to even think about getting camper level. Which put our door at awful tree roots. Could barely walk with out tripping. Dirt.
Highway runs along side. Trees between but first day wind blew noise to park.
Stay up front. The office people are very nice, and they are big on Halloween. - TheRealMcCoys

Decent size sites, very good wi-fi, friendly staff, lots of activities, no cable but was able to receive 38 OTA channels. $5.00 for each extra vehicle. Nature trail needs maintenance. The capitolkoa.com web site has issues. Use koa.com to reverve at this campground. No indoor meeting facilities. - User3064

Friends that live nearby told us about this awesome park. Outstanding staff and the park is well maintained. It is a medium size KOA and with the holiday it was busy. The kids enjoyed the activities and liked the giant inflatable. Had an outdoor movie and played RV. Staff in the office told us about a special coming up in a few weeks. Stay one night get one free. A real value so we booked for that. It rained on and off so we didn't get to swim. Really enjoyed our stay because we were there with friends. It is a Great location in the woods but come out of the campground and your in close to grocery store and shopping centers. Downside was they had a flood. Asked in the office someone had flushed a depends pad down the toilet. Yuck. The store had water flowing in it from that. Double yuck. One thing missing was no cable tv. But they did have 20 channels local tv. A plus was WIFI was excellent for a KOA. - Daphney Albright

Very convenient location for visiting the DC area. With the recently opened Metro Silver Line, there is a stop only a few miles away. None of the sites have water or sewer, and about half have 50A electric service. The sites are reasonably spaced, and there is little shade. Sat TV and cell service were good. The camping area is high on a hill about a half mile from the lake/water park. The place is quiet on weekdays, but the water park and picnic areas are packed on weekends in the nice weather. - NKA

We had a large site with plenty of room for our dog to be outside. There were trails for hiking and lots of other activities in the park. People in the office were very friendly and helpful. Dish TV, AT&T cell phones and Verizon MiFi all worked well. We stayed here for a week and enjoyed it tremendously. It was a great base for sightseeing in the immediate area and in D.C. Will definitely stay here again if we are in the area. - Bobbi1948

A big, beautiful park convenient for seeing D. C. if you don't mind a 50 minute metro ride into downtown. The metro station is only a 15 minute drive away. There are many restaurants, groceries, pharmacies, etc. nearby. The main drawback is that there is no water or sewer hook-ups at the sites, although there is water nearby and a convenient dump. The restrooms are good although they could be cleaner, i. e. cobwebs in the corners and a few dead bugs on the floors. The showers are really good, as you have a private room, with the shower, bench, lavatory, and toilet. Verizon signal was good. Clear view for satellite in our site and a few over the air stations available. Many of the shorter sites appeared un-level. We stayed 10 days and would return. - starwind
