This campground is very nice with lots of trails, a lake, and an equestrian loop. Sites are spacious and shaded. Very close to DC. We would camp here again. - rebcon

Sites were very nice, trails were in very good shape considering the recent hurricane. Park was patrolled regularly. Staff was helpful and friendly. For the surrounding area being so close to DC and Waldorf, it was quiet. Stayed over the weekend when the leaves where just changing colors. Will revisit. - MacQude

What a great find! Close to DC and good shopping but still remote and quiet. Very reasonable rates. We had no trouble parking our 33 foot fifth wheel there. - paylor

The campground only has about 25 sites, and they vary greatly from large pull-throughs to walk-ins, some much more level than others. Few were taken when we arrived, so we had many to choose from, but I wouldn't have been very happy getting stuck with one of the less level sites. The sites are not very consistently laid out, so tables and fire pits may or may not be close to one another or near/aligned with an RV. Each site has its own trash can that was emptied each morning of our stay. The loop is narrow and winding, and while we certainly had no problem in our 24', we were amazed to see a couple of very large rigs. (The terrain slopes sharply from the pavement in some areas, so a tire on the shoulder could be problematic.) The park office was a challenge to find, as it is across the street in the main Regional Park grounds, which are absolutely fabulous, by the way. (The park itself gets 5 stars!) We got the senior rate of $13, which for both power and water is amazing! The campground is pretty much surrounded by suburbia, so expect to occasionally hear sirens, helicopters, airplanes, etc. There really isn't anything super special about the place - it's a campground in the woods - but for $13/night, it's fantastic. We will definitely stay here again if we pass through the area. - Libre RV

I have used this park many times as I live 2 miles down the road. The entire campground is newly paved asphalt. The electric is new 30 Amp service. They maintain the camp very well. They are always blowing the roads and site of leafs and debris as it is nestled in the woods. most sites however are unusable to large RV's as they are on a steep grade or to short. There are only 25 sites total of which only 3 or 4 would accommodate a 40'er. It is a very pretty park, very quiet and safe. There are never more than 3 or 4 guest in the park at one time. I really enjoy this park. Closest to DC for the tourists. Only 10 mins to the Branch ave Metro Station. 2 week total length stay. The bath house is in serious need of upgrading. They say that it is scheduled to be replaced next year. - Powerstroke

Stayed here for a few days while visiting family in Waldorf. As with many CGs signage could be much better for finding CG office then CG after that. Special care is needed for those with larger rigs at CG entrance. Deep ditches either side of narrow entrance with evidence from those who didn't notice them. Interior roads somewhat narrow & needing extra care with larger rigs. A mixture of site pad sizes small to very long. Nothing really level. Again, the larger the rig the more limited the usable site. Some noise from nearby Andrews AFB but it is essentially an urban CG so noise goes with the territory. We have a 5th wheel. - Veebyes

We are retired military. We stayed at this campground many years back when we full timed in our RV as well as had been stationed here previously. The campground is an older one and I believe they have done a good job in keeping up the park considering cash is not likely flowing to them. When I called for reservations, I was not going to be able to get full hookups for the entire week we were there and agreed to take an electric only site (which is close quarters). prior to leaving on our trip, the staff called to say they had a place for us - full hook up for our entire time. They were as friendly in person as on the phone. There was some road noise as a main street is just over the fence line and an occasional take off to get your attention :)) - ownedafew

First time staying at this campground. Found it very nice to use while visiting the DC area. The staff was very friendly and helpful. Originally booked in an electric only site but was moved up to full hook up when one came available. We would stay there again when in the area. Camped in a Class C motorhome. - Tiger6

The park has gotten a upgrade since I last stayed here. All sites have a concrete pads now. Just wide enough for your RV. The electric is old and only 30 Amp. The roads are gravel and not maintained very well at all. When it rains it gets very muddy. All in all you can't beat the location. close to dc. - Powerstroke

The Office Staff is very nice. The sites are a mess, not level, mixture of sand, grass and gravel, with lots of "pines". Decent wifi, and have cable. Unfortunately, they apparently don't realize how much you pay for your unit you pull in there, due to the lack of care while mowing, throwing rocks and debris with the riding lawn mower, hitting people's RVs with all this mess. I am not a happy camper. They need a bagger, or they need to clean up their sites so that you do not risk getting your unit dinged up, or windows broke from the negligence while mowing. - Nitwitt100

This is now an Adventure Bound RV Park and I thought they deserved a better review. The park is centrally located between Washington, D.C. and Annapolis, MD. It is a large park of pull through sites with full hookups for RV's, in addition there are cabins and tent sites and it appeared that they are trying to bring it back. There are quite a few full timers, but the travelers are in a different area. Sites are large and graveled, mostly level, with grass in between, picnic tables and fire rings. They have a lot of activities for kids, pool and dog run. Several laundry, bathroom and shower facilities as well as a store are on site. They could accommodate some of the largest rigs I've seen, but the trees can be a little close in some sites. Our cable went out, but I'm not sure that was their problem. Antennas work well there, trees might make it difficult for satellite in most sites. - Traveler Anne

If we hadn't paid this high rate, I might be more kind. But we had a huge generator running day and night within 50 feet and a second 200 feet away. The cable hookup was in the next site. The "free" Wi-Fi was a joke--it takes 3 minutes to open a traditional site. But they offer you a "speed-up" for $$. Their café had only half of the things we wanted to order. The lifeguard sat while a stranger rescued a toddler. C'mon folks -- live up to your billing! - sherwood

-Personal beach area
-Good power and water
-Nice warm water
-Boat and paddle board rental on site
-2 security gates
-Coincidentally spot 16 needs maintenance but we were given boards and assistance to get settled into the site
My family absolutely loved this campground! This was our first time staying at a public operated campground so some things took some getting used to. We were so pleased with the campground we are contemplating getting a seasonal site next year. We've been all the way to the Keys and haven't had as good of an experience as we had here.... - On_my_whey

Great beach front camping on the Chesapeake Bay. Campsites are very sandy (this is a beach remember) and have good 50 Amp power and water at each site. No sewer or dump station, just a honey wagon service twice a week. The weekends are very busy here as the location is so great.
Each campsite has a campfire ring on the beach behind the campsite. A great place to have a beach campfire. Swim, wade, boat right from the beach behind the campsite. The campsites are packed full on weekends as is the nearby day-use area. During the week it is much less crowded. There is a pretty big marina right next door also.
The sites are nice and long but fairly narrow. The beach area behind the campsites is a nice large shared use area for campers only. It is a nice sized beach that provides lots of room for the campers to spread out on right behind your campsite.
Reservations are by telephone only. This is a County Park run by Calvert County, Maryland. - eb145

We loved it here. Will definitely come again. We were right on the beach. We were provided boards to park on, but didn't need them. Our grandchildren had a blast here, and we enjoyed the wonderful view of the water right from our kitchen window. The bathrooms and showers were not the best, but we really didn't need them. The pump-out service was great. We didn't have to do anything. Great place for a family. - sharivas

Stayed here for about a month. Good spacing between sites, but relatively no shade on any of the sites. Hookups were a little different, water/electric/cable towards the very front of the site, sewer at the back. A bit of a challenge if your electric is in the back etc. Sites are not as level as you would hope for in a newer RV park. The challenge was not just side to side, but front to back too. Some semi-permanent residents that "shuffle" from site to site, but still a nice place. - RobT

Spent 4 nights here. This is a beautiful new camp in a beautiful location on the river. The facilities are new with concrete pads for vehicle and patio. My only negative comments are: I think $40.00 is a little much for a military site. When they installed the concrete pads you would think they could have been level, but few to none are level and some are off a lot. The bath/laundry house is very nice, clean and well equipped, but it sits on a hill on one edge of the campground. It could have been more centrally located. But even with the cost I would stay here again. - trav

The pros: This RV park is located in a beautiful area right on the Potomac River. The cons: The kids who work in the office are clueless about all things RV with no understanding of hookups, necessity of level sites or even the ability to give simple directions or information about the base. Very few sites are level in any direction (i.e. side-to-side or end-to-end) to the extent that we had to try about a half-dozen sites before we found one in which our motor home auto-leveling system could level the coach. Aside from restrooms and laundry facilities, there are no other amenities in the park itself. Other military RV parks in the Washington DC area are either much cheaper. There are many other superior and cheaper places to stay that do not have the design flaws that cannot be corrected at Ft Belvoir. The management and Fort Belvoir leadership have no idea of what is important to RV'ers. If they did this campground would have been better designed, better built, and more military camper friendly with respect to policies, prices, reservations and cancellations. Do yourself a favor, drive on by and stay north of the city. This is the most expensive military campground that we have encountered in seven years of full-timing and has the poorest site design. - flrvers466

Nice, cost effective place to use as a base for visiting DC. A metro stop is fairly close that will take you into the heart of DC. Our site was a pull through, dirt, moderately unlevel. Lots of trees so that you don't feel close to your neighbor. Electric only. Water is a bit of a problem and only available at the check in office where maneuvering is tight for rigs over 32. Careful with GPS. My Garmin would have had me go 2 miles past the entrance. Google Maps was dead on. Fortunately it is well marked...so follow the signs. The entrance/store/check in is not well designed. Very tight for rigs over 32, especially if towing. Water is available only at the check in, making a traffic mess. - tom&kathryn

This is a great park just outside of the capital beltway. Lots to do in this park: Mini Golf, Frisbee Golf, rent paddleboards or kayaks, hike and swim in a pool.
The sites are under trees and even thought it was 85 degrees out, it did not feel that hot. They also have great cabins that we stayed in.
The bathrooms were clean and the laundry room (2 washers & 2 dryers) was clean too.
Everyone was friendly, and the roads are well maintained. No complaints at all. - The Bees

Pohick Bay Regional Park is located in a wooded area. Roads are paved.
Sites are dirt, but they were putting gravel down. Our site also had timbers placed around it to help contain gravel. It was the only one with the timbers.
There are only 10 sites with full hookups. Other sites have water and electric or shared water at some tent sites.
There are two bath houses with laundry areas, but only one was open as we were here out of season.
The office has wifi. We were able to get a weak signal from it with our Jefatech repeater using an outside antenna. Later in the week, we moved to a second site and could not pickup the wifi, so the coverage is spotty away from the office.
There was a loop with some small rustic cabins. Also, there were a couple new cabins build recently in another area overlooking the river. These appeared to have central AC or heat. - B D HOWie

Friendly staff, but not really a place for someone just passing through. All but 8 sites are for seasonal campers. The overnight sites are grouped closely together on a grassy slope. We will not stay here again. - Dave51
Sep 2013 - $30.00
This is a great value, what you pay vs what you get. The owners were super nice, went out of their way to make us feel welcome. I believe all but 8 sites are for seasonal campers. The sites are back to back, grass sites between the bath house and pool. The 30 amp power was good, but did not need to run the a/c. The bath house wasn't great, but was clean. This was an amazingly friendly group of people, made us feel very welcome. I would stay here again, great waterfront location, great kayaking nearby! - SteveandAnn

When this park is empty, it looks like little more than an open field, not very inviting. But, it does fill up on the weekends, and is a VERY friendly and kid-safe place. There is a down-home party atmosphere, so if you are looking for peace and quiet, this campground may not be the best fit. The pool is clean, the restrooms and showers are immaculate, and there is tons for the kids to do. We shared a power pedestal with other campers, but the 30amps was enough to power both of our AC units without a single problem. They do not have 50amp available. Wonderful church service on Sunday mornings at the pavilion. We will definitely camp here again as often as possible! - User3193
May 2008 - $37.00
the electric is very outdated. we lost electric each day and were told to turn off the ac units to save the boxes. the sites are not marked and there is not water and electric to each site you must share with others and if you do not have enough cords oh well. there is no camp store and the costs jump up after 2 persons and yo have other fees as well on arrival. we were disappointed in the depth of the water 3 - 5 feet only and the docks were always taken and there is no safe area for the kids to play oe swim. if you are looking - pass this one up!! - mountainbreeze

This is a little known gem in the Maryland State Park system. Very quiet and shady sites. Extremely clean. Easy access to dump station on way out of campground. All sites had a fire ring, picnic table, and large "patio" area adjacent to the site. Most sites are wide without trees obstructing back-in access, though there is PLENTY of shade. Multiple overflow parking areas available if needed, but we were able to fit camper, meg-cab dually and a 2nd vehicle within our site. Reservation website lists 30' max, but we found 8 sites we could easily fit our 43' triple axle triple slide 13'6" tall 5th wheel on. We were also able to maneuver on interior roads without issue. Short walk to the marina, historical museum, fantastic playground and new nature center. Wonderful shaded walking/hiking paths. Easy access to DC for those wanting to see the sights in the Capital. - User3193

This is a really nice park with plenty to do and see. Maybe a little too "woodsy". Sites are a little small but there is plenty of space between them. For a state park, I would have expected better trails. With the river so close, fishing and boating is very popular here. There is even a museum in the park. - tonymaldonado
