8 Parks near Clarksburg, Maryland
May 2015 - $30.00
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 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

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

Great location. Close to Gettysburg. The site is heavily wooded and was very level. Great place to just hang out and walk the grounds. Will return again. - MichaelRay

This is a very nice campground. It was very crowded over the weekend while we were here. They have a nice pool. No satellite signal but they do have cable. The channel line up is rather limited in my opinion. There is WiFi but it is slow. They have a nice pool & are dog friendly. One thing I didn't care for was there gate system. You can leave anytime but there is a gate to get in. You have to hit the button to call the office & then they raise the gate. When the office is closed you need to use a key card. To get a key card you must leave a refundable $40 deposit with the office. My questions are what if you expect to be back by 8:00 pm when the office closes but are held up? You would not be able to get back in. What if you leave early in the morning before the office opens? How would you get your deposit back. Shopping & restaurants are about 10 miles away. We would stay here again. - Connie's Co-Owner

Beautiful wooded campground. Lot spacing is spacious and mostly shady. Site surfaces are gravel and feature a fire ring, picnic table and patio. Lots of activities: pool, playgrounds, game rooms, etc. Mostly a weekend getaway spot. - JLF3426

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

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

We stayed here 18 months ago and gave it a lower rating, likely because it was our first experience without water and sewer. Now that we're much more experienced (and know what we like), we're much happier with Lake Fairfax Park. Since there's no water and sewer, the bathrooms and showers are very important: they're new and are some of the best we've used... huge, private, and heated. The campground is very pretty, with good-sized sites (important to us) and mature trees interspersed throughout. It's not heavily wooded, so you will see your neighbors. The price sounds high for an electric-only campground, but it's appropriate for the region, and is half the price of the only commercial RV park in the area (where your awning almost touches your neighbor's rig). There are miles of hiking/biking trails in the woods, but watch out for ticks on you and your dogs (the campground is very dog-friendly). The skateboard park was very busy (but closed at dusk while we were there), so I suggest getting a campsite on the other side of the campground. One oddity at the dump station was that the potable water spigot was right next to the sewer dump, while the non-potable (for rinsing sewer hoses, etc.) was further away. I'm not a fan of seeing the potable spigot one foot away from the sewer at a dump station. Due to the excellent location in Northern Virginia, the large sites, and the new bath/shower house, we really enjoyed our stay, and will be back again. - LifeRebooted

This park could be a 10 but no water or sewer or wi- fi at any sites. No pull thru either yet there is a water park on the grounds. Long drive to camping area and twisty hills for a motor home towing. $40 with senior discount but close to where we had to be and Cherry Hill is just too far and must use I-495 which is always bad. - lesashubby

We stayed for 10 nights while a major new sewer line was being installed by the Fairfax County construction team. This is designed to ensure the blockages referred to in a recent post are a thing of the past. The only major drawback with this park is the lack of water at each site. However we conserve water by showering at the individual bathrooms which are new, large, warm and of the highest quality. The park is busy on Friday afternoon through to Sunday morning. The lack of water at the sites, no full hook-ups and lack of seasonals, means the park is relatively quiet during the week. Most campers are either visiting family in the area or using the park as a base to visit Washington DC. - R and M

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

We have stayed here numerous times. It is one of the few RV parks that has a "resort" feel while maintaining a "camping" feeling without boasting they are more than they are: an RV park. This park is the closest to DC and is an easy Metro ride to DC. We always park at the Greenbelt Metro stop but they also have a public bus stop at the entrance (inside park so you are under covering and off the street), along with the ability to purchase bus and Metro tickets at park. Sites are well maintained as are the bathhouses. (This is the park we compare all other bath/restrooms too.) We have never had a problem while staying here. This trip included hiring a dog walker who is recommended by the park. She took our dog out twice one day so we could stay in town all day being "tourists." A neighboring camper mentioned she was gone about 20 minutes each time she took him out. This park also offers tent, group tent, cabin, yurts, and traditional RV sites.
Since our last visit they've added a splash park and new building with more laundry and bath/showers. Their first laundry room has always been sufficient so this was nice to see. Laundry wash was $2.50 per load using new front load washers and dry was about $1.50 per load since you pay $0.25 for each 6 minutes. Some loads were done in $1 while some needed more time. They have also eliminated the code entry at security gate. It is now a scanning device but every time we entered, a staff member was at the gate and opened it as we approached. After 8 days, they recognize you!! - Ms Winnie

We really enjoyed our stay at this park! Very well maintained, clean.. We used the pool almost nightly and even enjoyed some pizza from the cafe. The pizza was excellent, was not expecting what we got!
We had a very nice conversation with the person running the information/Metro booth at the campground. This campgrounds goes above and beyond and has excellent customer service.
One of the better stocked camping supply stores I have seen at a campground.
We would stay here again in a heartbeat! - WYDan

Lots for kids to do when not sight-seeing. Very nice pools and splash park, putt-putt golf, game room and movie night. Huge, clean laundry rooms. Easy to get into DC either by shuttle to the metro station, or a short drive to park there. The staff is very friendly and helpful with how to get around and what to see. - Peglegtraveler
