We stayed here while touring Washington DC. It was a very convenient 15 minute drive to the Metro. This small, wooded campground has very few level sites, very poor power (we had to run our generator for A/C or our surge protector would turn off the power) and the bathrooms are clean but old & buggy. With the senior discount, it was still a good value & no reservations were needed. In spite of the power issues would stay here again if touring D.C. We camped at Louise F Cosca Regional Park in a Motorhome.

What a gem of a spot! It's smack dab in the middle of a D.C. suburb in Maryland AND it's 8 miles from the metro station AND...wait for it...it was $13/night!!!! (Senior citizen discount for the win!) We camped at Louise F Cosca Regional Park in a Motorhome.

Do not take Credit Cards, wanted cash. Small Narrow roads with many tree branches that scraped along side our 37 foot 5th wheel. No sewer hook ups, but water and electric were good. 30 Amp only. Tiny sites, only decent level ones for our 37 footer were 24 and 25. Price is right, but the traffic and crummy roads in and out of here in Clinton MD, were not worth the trip. We camped at Louise F Cosca Regional Park in a Fifth Wheel.

We stayed in the park while visiting Washington DC. It has only 23 sites, but was mostly empty when we were there. We arrived on Friday Veterans Day and the office was closed until Monday. But we found a spot and went to the office to check in Monday morning which is the accepted practice. This is a great place to stay. The price is amazing with water and electricity. The sites are well spaced. Each site has it's own garbage can. The public restroom and showers are not so great, but we are self contained. Branch Avenue Metro stop is about 6 miles away. Very convenient. The park outside the campground is very nice as well. We camped at Louise F Cosca Regional Park in a Fifth Wheel.

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. We camped at Louise F Cosca Regional Park in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

The nearby town of Waldorf (15 minutes away) has every type of store imaginable. Costco, Target, Walmart, Lowes, Kohl's, Home Depot, grocery, movie theaters, etc. Traffic can get heavy in the area during rush hour, however.

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. We camped at Louise F Cosca Regional Park in a Fifth Wheel.

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. We camped at Louise F Cosca Regional Park in a Fifth Wheel.

This small campground is in a very convenient location in Clinton. We loved the senior rate. You can drive a short distance to get the Metro at Branch Station, which will take you into the D.C. area. You pick your site here and then go out of the campground, down the road and through another part of the park to register. It is not a short walk. The water hookup was in an odd spot, but the water was good, as was the 30 amp electric. The heavily wooded sites were partially paved but most were super small. Roads were paved also. There is plenty of privacy. We picked up many local antenna TV stations. The bathrooms were unacceptable & beyond being able to be really clean. They need to be gutted & totally redone. The men’s shower was so bad that men were using the only women’s shower, which is secured with only a shower curtain. The dump station was a very odd mechanism and the tank overflowed once we began the process of dumping. It was beyond awful. The bathroom and dump station problems pull this rating way down. We will look for another solution next time unless the bathrooms are redone. We camped at Louise F Cosca Regional Park in a Travel Trailer.

Front office staff friendly. Recently remodeled/paved sites, although bathroom was a carryover from before the remodel. Many sites not level, and would be difficult for an RV to get level. Some sites were RV friendly, with a couple of pull-thru sites sprinkled in. Park was consistently patrolled by park police. We visited at the end of March, and the grounds were being cleared up in prep for spring / summer. The road in/out and the loop were tight. My biggest ding would be the men's bathroom, which is disintegrating along one wall due to a major water leak into the wall. I used the women's bathroom, as it had a recently remodeled shower. We used this as a low cost base of operations for a DC visit. We'd drive 5 miles to the Branch St station of the metro. We camped at Louise F Cosca Regional Park in a Fifth Wheel.

The price is the senior rate. The park is tight but very nice. It's very close to the city. I was bit bit concerned about safety but we had no trouble. You can't reserve a site. Make sure to ask about the check in procedure when you go. We had to choose a site then go to the office. We camped at Louise F Cosca Regional Park in a Fifth Wheel.
