Streets through town to get to park are very narrow. After you cross railroad tracks, be ready for a really dusty potholed road to campground. Check in was weird - we were given orange bands to display so staff could know we weren't "squatters". Finally got to "campsite" to find electrical and water hookups were at least 50 feet away. Campsite was on the edge of potential water hole if it rained any at all. Tried to get a refund as we decided we were NOT going to stay. Were told refunds had to be approved through general manager at main off-site office. Called and of course he had just left office for the day. We left to find something else. Refund was finally approved 3 days later. All we can really say is: JUST DON'T EVEN THINK ABOUT GOING HERE unless you see it first. Best thing that can be said is that the campground is on the Potomac River. - gwvwadc

My husband and I had planned to stay here for our first overnight stay in our new 26' TT. The drive to the campground was the first issue we ran across. The roads through town to get to the campground were very narrow and it was hard to make turns at stop lights without running up over curbs. Once we got through town and over the railroad tracks, we went down a very narrow gravel road, pass the sewage treatment plant and arrived at the campground entrance. I will say the lot we attempted to setup at had a very nice view overlooking the river. However, it was an extremely unlevel lot and we did not have very good success trying to setup the camper. After ruining one of our stabilizer jacks, we decided to pack up and go down the road to a different campground. - HappyCampers508

The road to the campground is narrow as everyone has said. The sites are on grass, very little shade. Some are pull through & some are back ins. The utility pole is far but if we pulled up, we'd be too close to the road. The road inside campground is very bumpy. Only one bathhouse, not convenient for everyone. Port a potties around though. The sites are long but neighbors are close by. Fire rings & picnic table. Playground & volleyball net. Hiking, biking trails. OTA TV local channels. Dump site use inconvenient. - jcpjane

Turns are very tight. If you're a MH towing, disconnect in their very large parking lot. Sites are all on a hill but so is the entire state. The utility side of the site has very large rail ties which can make it difficult to open basement doors for hook up. The cable connection ended in a male plug which required a male-to-male connector. Luckily, an employee was passing by and got one from another site. Overall the individual sites are lacking maintenance. Wi-if was very slow and required repeated sign on. - Rd yacht

Over priced for what you get. It's not worth it. No escort, tight turn getting into site and worst getting out. Luckily no vehicles were parked in the way. What once was narrow asphalt drive is now crumbling rocks. Had to turn sharp by a power pole to exit, not easy with 39 ft. 5th wheel. First stay here was in 2011. No improvements at all. Wi-fi was bad, cable was as bad this time as before. Do not intend to stay here again. Three strikes and you're out. Stayed three times and that's enough. - OKeadle

As with most KOAs, the sites were tight and the roads and sites were gravel. We had a great site with a bit more room than many, but most were fairly close to each other. The employees were very helpful, and there are a TON of activities for the kids at this campground -- more than the other KOAs I've visited. The camp store was very large and very well stocked. We enjoyed the movie theater during a summer downpour, and (while it needed some repairs) the mini-golf was great. The pool was good sized but could use some work, and it would be great if a lifeguard was on duty. We witnessed multiple kids breaking pool rules and endangering themselves and others, and unfortunately their parents weren't doing anything about it. We camped with friends who used a cabin in the back of the park. While the cabin itself was acceptable, the road down to it was in horrible shape with large ruts. Roads in the campground were, as a rule, very tight. Despite these points, however, we had a very nice time and would definitely stay there again if we're in the area. - SteveMM

We stayed at this campground for an overnight stop on our way home. The campground is located in a forest, with paved roads and gravel sites. Sites are large, well separated, shaded, and private. RV/trailer sites have electric hook-up only. Water is available at a number of locations in the campground. OTA TV is limited, Verizon signal is good, and there is no WiFi. Restrooms and showers are clean and well maintained. There is no traffic noise. A dump station is located near the campground entrance. We would stay here again. - tnyankee

Nice State Park in Maryland! Pleasantly small camping area, with only 34 sites. It was an enjoyable 5 night stay! The weekend nights were busier, which apparently had the drive by female campground supervisor needing to check on every site very often. A few comments and suggestions were a little unnecessary. The weeknights were a bit better with the male drive by campground supervisor(s) simply driving by and waving! The camp host was convenient and helpful when needed for information. Pet friendly park and campground! Shower/Restroom facilities were well lit, clean and in easy access for all campsites! Beautiful shaded campsites! Each site has a large well built picnic table and fire ring with grill insert and 2 lamp posts which were quite handy! All roadways in very good condition! Lots of wildlife everywhere you look, helping to make our camping trip an enjoyable one! - patti&charlie

A great little campground. It is centrally located to many historic areas and Maryland State Parks. There is a small pond to fish in and trails to hike within the park. The only sad part was that the park host is leaving this year and she not only kept the entire park clean, but assured that it was safe and quiet. - electrician549

This park has easy access and is big rig friendly with level sites, concrete patios, good utilities but is mainly a trailer park with many permanents. As their website describes, $45.00 a night with a three night minimum. Basically the only game in Frederick and is okay if you want three nights. - RJourney

As others have mentioned, this is not an RV park: it's a mobile home park that added spaces for RVs. It's not very tidy, but it was adequate for what we wanted: to be close to Frederick. Most RV sites are full of people doing contract work in the area for 4-6 months. All spaces are pull-throughs with concrete pads, which was nice as we got a lot of rain. No shade at all. The manager was very helpful and accommodating and he seems to keep a close eye on the park. Lots of restaurants and shopping close by. And while it's not an RV resort, if we return to the area we would stay here again. - mauigirl7254

This 'park' is NOT a campground. This is a former Mobile Home park that has been 'transitioned' to an RV camp (not campground). The only amenities are a laundry room. No Restrooms, no showers, no playground, no pool, we even have to mow our own grass!! The rates are very high ($800/month) but it does INCLUDE Electric (I have only used my propane sparingly for cooking). The manager is only here on Tues and Thurs from 10:00am-2:00pm. He is a nice guy, but not educated as to how a 'campground' should operate. Everyone here is permanent to semi-permanent and working in the area (Mostly men, very few families). I plan to be here until Jan 2010, when my husband hopes to return to the US (from working in Abu Dhabi, UAE) and we can finally retire and take off! The one thing that attracts people to this camp is the location. It is in the heart of Frederick, MD close to EVERYTHING! Very convenient location. - onthecoach

The park is easy to access from main roads and interstate but far enough back that the only "road noise" is a racetrack/drag strip that is near-by. As you enter the park, there is a convenient park station that you have to pass to check-in; parking lot can easily accommodate 4-5 large RVs plus vehicles. Campground has limited access with gate and keypad; it is fairly narrow and oversized RVs may be challenged. Dump station is on left as you access to fill up with water since only electric is available. Sites are then easy to access with well maintained, paved roads. There are 3-4 ring-roads that are alphabetical but named (Ash, Birch, Cedar, etc). Sites are easy to access although different sizes. Most are on the side of the sloped hill and at different elevations. All have covered by trees and many large rigs came in. Some sites have sloped driveways although the sites are fairly level (ours required 2 blocks on the right side that you couldn't tell by looking at it). Very quiet. Bath houses are centrally located but we did not use. Water points are throughout the ring road. Ring roads are curvy and long travel trailers would need to go slow; 35 and below probably no problems (at least on Cedar). We stayed in a 25' Travel Trailer. - Next Mission

Site was partially shaded, more private than many others in the loop, but still not very secluded. Nice and level. Hardly any space between sites. Definitely the tightest MD state park we've camped at by far. Luckily, we were there during the week, so it was not crowded at all, and reasonably quiet. Had we been there on a weekend, I can only imagine that the crowds and noise would have driven me crazy.
Facilities/Overall Park: Bath house was fine; very average as far as bugs and cleanliness. Only 2 or 3 shower stalls, IIRC; never a wait while we were there, but I imagine the lines are long on weekends. There was a relatively easy hiking trail from the campground down around the lake, with some nice, quiet little spots for fishing. To get to the sandy beach area of the lake, we drove, since we had 3 kids and a ton of crap to transport. The lake area is very nice, with tons of picnic spots in the shade. However, every single picnic table was in use, and the beach was pretty crowded, and we were there on a Wednesday! I can only imagine how packed it would be on a weekend. Despite the moderate crowds, we really enjoyed ourselves, and I think I liked it even better than the lake area at Cunningham Falls. - Jenventola

Great state owned campgrouond. Easy to get to from the Interstate.
We stayed in Cedar Loop which is the only loop with electric.
All back in sites. No water hook ups, no over the air TV.
The best part about camping here were the campground's hosts who were parked next to us.
They quickly solved an issue with another camper who was in our assigned site. Then they helped us with good suggestions on avoiding the beltway around Washington, DC. Lastly, they came over with freshly baked banana chocolate chip muffins!
We would definitely stay here again. - thetravelkids

This campground is basically an open field, but a very nice open field at that. Sites were grassy but on a slight slope. Roads were gravel. There are no bathrooms, picnic tables or fire rings. It is a no-frills kind of place, good for an overnight stay but not all that convenient being 4 miles or so from Interstate 81. I did appreciate the spacious, open sites and the price is right. - The 3 Blands

Arrived and went to office but no one there. The male owner walked over and waved us over to the camping area. Unknown to us, his daughter who manages it had left a phone message with our site number, but not hearing the message or seeing a site flyer on the office wall, we just chose our site and set up. My mistake. Fortunately we did not have to move. So check your phone as you drive in to see where you are supposed to be. Also, watch your voltages- we saw some large differences between L1 vs L2 and our power management system protected us 3 times. I shared that observation with the manager. - cherib

This is a Dr. Jekyll / Mr. Hyde experience. Even with the cons we'll stay again because it's what we need where we need it. Pros: Exactly right for a quick one night stop. Reasonable rate. Close to 81. *In general* the grounds were mowed and tidy, and wide open (it's a field), not crowded. Full hookups. There's actually a long (town) greenway accessible from the front of this campground which was a pleasant surprise. Easy in and out (whole site is spacious and flat). Cons: There's a junky area (literal junk) right when you come in. Don't know what that's about. And it's contained to that spot. But besides being aesthetically bothersome it didn't actually affect what we were there for. No shade. The water valve leaked at our particular spot so we turned it on/off as we used it. Not ideal but not unusable either. Management isn't actually in the little office. But if you call or email you can make contact. - SitStay

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

We were the only vehicle being used. There were a number of abandoned trailers. The swimming at the river was closed and is a hike away from the park. The advertised "museum" is run down and with unused equipment around. The caretaker was helpful. Would not recommend. - User2759

Ok this place is seriously under rated! When I arrived earlier than the 3pm check in time I was charged an EARLY Check In Fee...which I reluctantly paid. Once I drove through the park to my site I was very surprised at the layout, the cleanliness and helpfulness of the staff. This campground had as much or as little as you or your family wanted to do from the choice of 2 pools, a water park, zip lining, a FULLY stocked and reasonably priced camp store plus lots of interaction with Yogi, Boo Boo and Ranger Rick. We will defimetly come back here again and I will read the fine print in the reservation agreement especially when it comes to early check in. - ETCTA

When we moved a reservation from summer to fall because of a dangerous summer storm on check-in day, the front desk assured us that they won't charge us a fee because of the storm. Alas when fall arrived, their management team decided that the front desk was wrong to not follow policy and charged us $94. Our friend was charged $134. This management decision to charge us after our agreement with the front desk, is why this campground deserves a rating of 1 for now. That said, the campground has many activities like laser tag, water slides, pools, ninja warrior course, etc. The pull-through sites in the 700s section are not level, front tires of DP are lifted off the ground by levelers. Dog park is nice sized with green lawn. Wifi worked well on iPad, not PC laptop. Att signal good. Front desk never picks up phone, you leave vm, they call back whenever hours later. The pool and water slides are clean. Cigarette buttes in fire ring. Dog waste bags provided are excellent quality. They pick up garbage from sites, signage around park very good. - univmd

They created "red carpet" sites. A couple are nice but I don't think any of them are worthy of the being called red carpet. Yes they are paved, yes they have a grill, but the one I had was small and crammed into the area. We like preferred spots, they are spaced out better however, almost all spots in this area are not level at all. Grass was not cut, weeds growing in gravel. Pool water was filthy. Pool is very small with half of it roped off to be a landing area for water slides. Splash pad area is great for the kids. For the size of this campground, they should really put in another pool besides the small one up front for just swimming. I come her for my granddaughter, otherwise I wouldn't camp here at all. - Pirate
