14 Parks near Brunswick, Maryland
May 2016 - $40.00
The 3/4 mile long dirt, pothole, muddy road to the park seemed much longer. The constant fear that an RV might come from the other direction made it worse. We knew there was no sewer but I was very dissatisfied to find the dump station is at the end of a dead-end road with no place to turn around with any decent sized rig. One night and out of here. We do have a 40ft fifth wheel and the "D" section pull-through was plenty long enough and did have 50 amp. With all the rain it was very mushy so I popped the truck in 4WD to make sure I didn't get stuck. Would not stay here again. - cwier

There are no sewer hookups at this campground. There is a single dump station. The campground's website boasts that it is a "full service" campground, and nowhere does it say that there are no sewer hookups. I found this deceptive.
It's reasonable value based on the area, but sky-high if you're a fulltimer with the ability to pick-and-choose your destinations. We stayed one week just because we wanted to see DC. I can't imagine staying here otherwise.
We had a hard time getting our 35' travel trailer into the most spacious site in the campground. - JPen365

Just spent 5 days at the Brunswick campground and had a wonderful experience. Very friendly and helpful staff, clean restrooms (newly painted) and right on the C&O Canal Bike Trail, which is why we were there anyway. PLUS they had dry wood for campfires and they'll even deliver to your site.
Are trains running close by? Yes! Didn't bother our party of three a bit. We stayed in a pop-up and had water and electric for about $45/night. Reasonable for the area!
Will we return? Absolutely!!! - JeffKruzic

An older KOA, it's in need of site improvements. Some are OK, some are terrible. We had a three night stay in a nearly empty park and was assigned a lousy site when there when numerous sites in better condition available. The site was not level from front to rear and side to side. Dirt was the main site surface and gravel had not been added in a very long time. Mature trees also had exposed roots throughout many sites making walking difficult. Ask to see your site BEFORE accepting. - Finder9

Book 2 nights get 3rd night free deal by calling on phone only. Rate can be tricky because they have so many fees for people and dogs, and rates/deals by phone are different than online, some rates do not allow KOA discount. Every person and every dog wears a paid paper band. Our site was level but most sites are unlevel and almost impossible to get to for big rigs. Do not try to pull through our site, even though pull through site, it is much easier to back in. Do not arrive at night, interior roads super hard and unlevel to navigate. Wifi actually worked most of the time, speed was good, it took awhile for iPad to lock onto signal though. Att wireless signal 1 or 2 bars. Trash in fire pits and on campsites. Pay $20 extra to pick site, bundle of wood, and elastic picnic table cover. Otherwise they pick your site number. - univmd

This campground was huge, and very crowded. We were there in the days leading up to 4th of July, and there was not a single empty site. Our section had mostly pop-ups and mid-size travel trailers, so the sites were all grassy. However, the area with pull-through sites for big rigs was just a huge RV parking lot. All roads were very narrow and winding. We did fine with the pup, but can't imagine trying to navigate a large motorhome through there. Crowding/space issues aside, this is a really nice (albeit expensive) campground. Everything, from the grounds, to rec halls, to pool and laundry, was sparkling clean and beautifully maintained. Staff was very friendly, as well. Tons of stuff to do here, especially for families: arts & crafts, indoor movie theatre, games, civil war reenactments, wine tastings, etc. We were certainly never bored, and the kids thought they had died and gone to heaven. Bathrooms were very clean as well, and there was surprisingly never a wait for the showers. Free daily pancake breakfast is included during the on-season, which was nice. Overall, this is a really nice place, but much more of a resort than a campground in my opinion. The kids loved it, but I'll always prefer the wooded seclusion of a state or national park. However, if I was looking for a more action-packed, activities-filled "glamping" experience, I wouldn't hesitate to return. - Jenventola

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

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

There are two areas: a day use lake, picnic area and a camping area. The camping area has 4 loops, only one loop has power (Cedar Loop), this loop is the best geared to RV camping, a big portion of the other loops are for small units and tents. This is not a big rig friendly park. Few sites will accept big rigs. It is clean and well run. Cell service is good TV antenna service is fair. Satellite service is spotty, hour in the mountains. Overall a nice park. We were hosts here for 3 months; hosts have full hookups. We were in a 42' rig. - rmckee

If you want playgrounds and swimming pools, this is not the place. If you are looking for a great spot to call "base" and use your time visiting the many historic places nearby, then this is a fine campground. Great freeway access, close to level spots, plenty of room to move around, not stacked with your neighbors slide-out almost touching your patio awning. Plenty of shopping nearby. restaurants, Harpers Ferry, even a casino. Good water, electric, and sewer. Just no "amusements". - scooterrooter
Jun 2016 - $35.00
This is a no frills campground. The sites are reasonably level and have water, electric, and sewer hook-ups. The water pressure is it great. There is no bathhouse... No toilets or showers. Most sites do not have a picnic table. There are no trees/shade near the sites. The campground is located just off a main highway, so there is some road noise, but it's not too bad. Overall, the campground is reasonably clean and well kept, but there are some junky areas. For the price, this campground isn't bad, but don't expect much more than a place to park & hookup. - wanderfilledlife

This is a very utilitarian campground. The owner (a former UK citizen) inherited the farm from her grandfather and turned it into a campground. Campsites are very spacious. Hookups (30 amp, water, and sewer) worked well although the water pressure was very low. There is no wifi and cell phone didn't work in the site either. There are no amenities here. This site is convenient to all the major attractions in the area. - Melodycthomas

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
Aug 2014 - $47.00
We really like this park. First stayed because it was close to our daughter and grandkids. Shaded sites. Can't get satellite from roof mounted dome but over air TV is fine. We stay in "D" loop which has electric hookups. Park's website has good info on the sites. Usually will give you requested site. This trip, main trees on main entrance/exit road really needed trimming. Branches getting heavy and could not swerve around all of them. This is our only complaint. Very convenient to shopping/restaurants. 50 amp sites cost a few dollars more than 30. - MissingLinc

Stayed here for 5 nights while visiting the attractions in the DC area. Very good location for that, convenient to the Shady Grove Metro and the District, Gettysburg, and Antietam, just to name a few. Nice campground with gravel sites which could use a little work on the leveling, so the rating reflects that. Clean bathroom/shower buildings, reasonably well-designed. Very friendly staff. The rate seems a little steep for a County Park campground with no water/sewer hookups, but you're basically paying for the location. Best campground I've found yet in the DC area, but keep your leveling blocks handy. - A Frame

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

BEAUTIFUL PARK with great services. Stayed at o e of preferred sitses. Grear distance between sites. Escorted to site and stayed until hook ups completed. - JOHNGW
Aug 2016 - $128.00
Kind of expensive for Hagerstown. We paid extra $10 to pick site & $25 to checkout late 6pm. The 700's sites are more level than the 200's. Visually sites look level, but when parked, front is lower than rear. Front tires almost off ground. Sites are not level, but at least they are as flat as can be for the land. Laser tag $5 day, $10 night. Zip line similar charge. Water slides free. Clean resort. Nice pool and playground and activities, store, and restaurant. Not much to do in Hagerstown outside resort. - univmd
Jul 2016 - $89.00
This park is geared to families and I understand that and usually when I use it, is for a one night stop. But $89 for one night and the site was not level is just frustrating. The site was easy in and out on gravel and out in an open field. The entrance to the park does wind around trees and you need to be careful.
This time I dropped them down from an 8 to a 6 do to them wanting me to stay 2 nights or no reservation. To do one night I had to wait till the week of the visit to reserve the site. I understand it is summer and they can be busy. When I got here, half the sites in the field were open. They could have given me the single night when I called 3 weeks before, as they knew then that they probably would not be full. - peddy dick
