This is a huge park, with easy access to DC by rail. The sites are pretty close together. We didn't have the best of sites, and the wifi was iffy. - Calteri

I see why people love this campground. It's clean, has lots of amenities. But the sites are short (we have a 39 ft fifth wheel). We had to park the truck with part of it on the small grass strip between sites. Your door sort of sees the neighbors sewer. It's convenient to Metro stop. - jcpjane

I can't say enough good things about this park. It was one of the nicest RV parks we've ever stayed in. Every convenience you can think of. We stayed for several days while visiting the monuments and museums in Washington. The staff are very professional and friendly. There is a 4:00 sightseeing meeting on weekdays that is informative about what to see and do in the area. Local buses run every few minutes and stop in the park to transport you to the train station - takes you to downtown Washington in only a few minutes. We also took a night tour of the city that was arranged by the park. Our site was level and had good cable and wifi. Bath houses (very nice and clean) are located throughout the park and there were plenty of trash containers. Another nice thing is that they don't charge you if you have to check out early as other parks will do. This is the closest park to the D.C. area and I recommend it to anyone. - farmboy25

We spent 5 nights here, going to Washington DC every day for tourist reasons. This is an incredible bargain as it is about 10 miles away from DC, and only about 2 miles to the Greenbelt Metro station. The first night we were there we were by ourselves at the end of the campground, the grass was about a foot high, and my wife said it felt creepy. The next day they mowed the grass and over the time we were there, more people came in to camp. There are no hookups, but we were fine in our self contained motor home. It rained a lot while we were there, when we left the dump station was flooded so we couldn't dump. We didn't look at the restrooms. - Russell G

Thick trees in serious need of trimming. Interior roads very tight, sites paved but many unlevel, and dry camping only. 1 shower stall for men in all of D loop, and that needed cleaning. Never saw the camphost, maintenance crew drove around but never saw them get out and do anything. Rain created muddy mess, garbage strewn about and not addressed. - rvrrat520

This is of course a NP campground. It is a little bit of heaven in a very large city. Like most NP campgrounds it is in need of a lot of repairs and updates, but if it were not a NP it probably won't even be here. I'm sure the property values in the area would make such a large section of land out of the range of most RV parks. In fact the only other RV park in the area charges $70 a night and that would have been way over our heads to stay at. There are trees everywhere and except for the faint noise of the busy highways on all sides you would think you were way out in the country. Those busy highways are what you have to take to get here but with patience and careful driving it wasn't as hard as I thought it would be. The roads inside the CG are a little rough and in need of repair. The sites could be a little larger and a little more level but we found one that would fit our 40' MH. There were picnic tables at every site but the fire rings were old and falling apart if they were even there at all. You are only 1 1/2 miles from the train station that takes you to downtown DC but we drove our car and after finding a hens teeth parking space we spent a wonderful day walking the DC Mall area. There were very few people the so it was easy to use the one shower in our loop but it would be difficult when it is busy. Most sites are back in but there are a few pull-through. The reservation system is fairly accurate in describing the size and levelness so if it says slightly unlevel you should believe them. Water was available close by and there is a dump station. The small visitors center was staffed by very helpful Park Service and volunteer people who directed us on ways to get around the city. Of course being in the city the cell and internet signal were very good. I would highly recommend this great CG for anyone with a desire to visit the Capital of the US. - rhianna

Very nice park with lots of elbow room. We were in #24 which is on a corner. The nearest RV to us was at least 50 to 75 feet away. The park is clean and they make everyone adhere to the rules (no parking on grass, no junk around, etc) which makes for a pleasing appearance. There was no wifi out where we were, electric was stable, water pressure was fine, and Verizon signal was 4G with 1 and 2 bars (not real strong). There are paved roads and concrete pads with gravel patios. Each patio has a fire pit and picnic table. The commissary and exchange were very nice. Here's our 2 complaints: First are the gates. The gates at the entrance and exit of the park are a pain. If you're on a military base where you are carded before entry, why do you need the gates? Second is Wifi/Hotspot. I called Verizon because my hotspot was worse than dial-up slow and normally it has very good speed. I was told that because of the area (between DC and Baltimore) the tower congestion is such that at certain times of the day it slows down to a crawl. That being the case, the park should have wifi repeaters. All in all we really enjoyed our stay at Camp Meade. - jomark

We've been here a month with a couple more weeks to go. This is a very nice park. Spacious lots, very nice laundry and shower building with a couple break room/library/game areas. Lots of trees but probably ? to ½ of sites are possible for satellite reception. Overall very quiet, except for the base special of reveille at 0630 over the base loudspeakers. Earplugs are useless to counteract, but we got used to it. Better than train whistles or traffic noise. They don't do it on the weekends.
They don't have wifi or cable, though I understand they're working on that right now.
Only downside is there's been a bit of musical spots. Their reservation software doesn't optimize the spots to minimize moves, so we moved twice in a week, but spent almost a month in the current spot. Seemed like it could be minimized since it was mostly people already there moving around. When we extended, the person we dealt with in the office made it so we didn't have to move again, but the experience/interest level of the staff varies.
This is certainly the best value in the DC area. We will be back in the spring for sure.
Rate based on monthly rate. - Seb

Very nice campground. Sites are big with plenty of space between them. I like the fact the grass gets mowed regularly. Good option for the DC area. We would do so again. - rwarner22

According to the rating I gave this RV park, you can see I wasn't too impressed. Let me first say that Andrews AFB is the President's Flagship Base as Air Force 1 is housed here and all the officers and personnel that keep everything in Presidential order. This FamCamp is an embarrassment to the base - in my opinion. It is old and apparently suppose to be upgraded but it is obvious that no work has been done to make improvements even though areas are roped off and those areas are totally unkempt with tall grass and neglected. The area that is being used is mowed where the RV's park, but the center section is growing wild. It is overgrown as close as 4' from the back of the RV and full of no-see-ums and jiggers. There is only 30 amp available. We have a 50 amp unit and have used 30 amp many times without problems. We simply use one a/c. In this park, 30 amp may as well have been plugging our RV into a household plug. If I ran an a/c the only other items that could be on were the LED lights. To take a shower we had to turn off the air (it was 94 while we were here), turn on the water heater and let the water get hot, take the shower then turn off the water heater and turn on the air. One thing at a time. Couldn't use the microwave or convection oven at all. And this after we had them put a new 30 amp breaker on the pole. When we first got here, the breaker kept tripping no matter what we did. The person working in the office claims I told her I had a 36' unit (I did not - that would not be to my benefit to say such a thing. We are 39') and that was the only reason she made the reservation for us. What difference 3 feet makes to the power pole is beyond me. She was very rude and argumentative. It is mostly her tone and attitude. We did not hit it off well at all. We will not be back. Although Andrews is a great place for visiting DC, I would not recommend this RV park. - jomark

we were only staying for 2 weeks but Denise squared us away and we were able to stay for 15 days! The staff was great Denise was very helpful!!! We had no issues plus plenty of space to walk our dogs! Grandsons came to visit our last week and had a blast!!! They are renovating some sites! We will definitely be back!!! - Griffin2

Half of the park was closed for reconstruction, the other half was neglected. Site had concrete pad which was the most positive aspect of the park. One staff member was rude and seemed to think answering questions was not in job duties. Roads gravel, muddy and potholed, restrooms were clean but really outdated, staff seemed to think it was okay to leave mops and brooms anywhere they stopped using them.
Grass around office area trimmed and mowed, rest of areas and campsites grass was 12-18 inches tall. Grass around dog area fencing mowed, inside not mowed. Piles of limbs and leaves everywhere.
Half of park being rebuilt/upgraded to 50 amp, but placement of utilities made no sense. While a very good location for visiting Washington DC, a disappointing park. One would think that the support base for the Presidential fleet of aircraft would be a showplace in all its facilities.
Base Exchange being remodeled but open for business, commissary large. Golf course one of the best I've ever seen on a military base. - Retired Medic

Very bad sites down back. Had to pull all the way to right side and up to front edge to even think about getting camper level. Which put our door at awful tree roots. Could barely walk with out tripping. Dirt.
Highway runs along side. Trees between but first day wind blew noise to park.
Stay up front. The office people are very nice, and they are big on Halloween. - TheRealMcCoys

Decent size sites, very good wi-fi, friendly staff, lots of activities, no cable but was able to receive 38 OTA channels. $5.00 for each extra vehicle. Nature trail needs maintenance. The capitolkoa.com web site has issues. Use koa.com to reverve at this campground. No indoor meeting facilities. - User3064

Friends that live nearby told us about this awesome park. Outstanding staff and the park is well maintained. It is a medium size KOA and with the holiday it was busy. The kids enjoyed the activities and liked the giant inflatable. Had an outdoor movie and played RV. Staff in the office told us about a special coming up in a few weeks. Stay one night get one free. A real value so we booked for that. It rained on and off so we didn't get to swim. Really enjoyed our stay because we were there with friends. It is a Great location in the woods but come out of the campground and your in close to grocery store and shopping centers. Downside was they had a flood. Asked in the office someone had flushed a depends pad down the toilet. Yuck. The store had water flowing in it from that. Double yuck. One thing missing was no cable tv. But they did have 20 channels local tv. A plus was WIFI was excellent for a KOA. - Daphney Albright

We stayed here for about 10 days as repairs were being made on our trailer. Two days we stayed in a cabin as the repairs couldn't be done on site. I have to say the staff went out of their way to help us out and worked with us giving us reduced rate on the cabin as well. Some of the best customer service we've ever had. That being said the park itself is in transition and we could tell they've been working hard. The park is mostly permanent to semi-permanent and unlike other reviewers we didn't see any separation. The space next to us was full of trash but we were told that the guy had issues and we didn't understand his situation. There were quite a few like that but others were neat and tidy. The location is good and very convenient to shopping, gas, etc. About 20 minutes to Metro station. - Catsinatrailer

We stayed 5 weeks, rate is based on the monthly rate plus electric. Awesome changes in progress! Campground is being completely renovated, bath house upgraded, sites leveled, trees cleared, roads graded, new washer/dryers, everything. Roads & sites are gravel, a few too many trees for our rooftop satellite to lock on but we positioned our carry out to get a signal. All utilities, electric, wifi, sewer, and cable worked well, water pressure dropped a bit when the pool was filled, otherwise worked well. Employees are awesome, went out of their way to accommodate us and make us feel welcome. Our site was a hair tight going in, but no issues leaving. We tow with a Freightliner, there was room to park it on the site. When the weather warmed, there was a huge blow up water slide and bounce house for the kids. Some neighborhood noise, but not that bad. We plan to stay here again. - Born2RV

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

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!) - Boerne6
Jul 2017 - $13.00
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. - June & Joe

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. - Scuba Rock
Oct 2017 - $40.00
We had a large site with plenty of room for our dog to be outside. There were trails for hiking and lots of other activities in the park. People in the office were very friendly and helpful. Dish TV, AT&T cell phones and Verizon MiFi all worked well. We stayed here for a week and enjoyed it tremendously. It was a great base for sightseeing in the immediate area and in D.C. Will definitely stay here again if we are in the area. - Bobbi1948

A big, beautiful park convenient for seeing D. C. if you don't mind a 50 minute metro ride into downtown. The metro station is only a 15 minute drive away. There are many restaurants, groceries, pharmacies, etc. nearby. The main drawback is that there is no water or sewer hook-ups at the sites, although there is water nearby and a convenient dump. The restrooms are good although they could be cleaner, i. e. cobwebs in the corners and a few dead bugs on the floors. The showers are really good, as you have a private room, with the shower, bench, lavatory, and toilet. Verizon signal was good. Clear view for satellite in our site and a few over the air stations available. Many of the shorter sites appeared un-level. We stayed 10 days and would return. - starwind

Most recent stay was June 27th thru July 1st 2017 We camp in a Little Rig "Tear Drop" style RV only 15' long w/o toilet or shower ~ plus we like to eat outdoors using the picnic table and set up our dining canopy for sun and weather protection and thus rely on condition of campgrounds facilities and being nearby our site ~ so our critique is focused in that area. Our site 61 was close to restroom/shower building, a modern newer facility with painted cement block walls and cement floor. Restrooms had separate entrance from showers which were large private individual rooms with a shower stall, toilet, and sink. This campground is operated and maintained by Fairfax County with a camp host on site. Cleaning of restroom/shower done every morning but appeared it was only a partial cleaning at best with hosing down the floors and maybe that's all - see my photos - was like that all 5 days of our stay. The walls were high but open ceiling with exposed rafters - I suppose for improving ventilation, but it didn't help much because there was no air movement; stuffy after the shower. Also drainage problem in all showers, leaving standing water on the floor after shower but there were no rubber mats to stand when toweling off and paper towels that could have been used to help clean up after using the sinks which remained messy. Our site W&E only was in hot sun - no shade trees - other sites had some shade but campground was fully reserved because of holiday (4th of July) and we couldn't move. Was a good base camp for taking day trips exploring Washington DC. We learned how to navigate public transportation taking Metrorail. It's highly recommend instead of driving to DC in extremely heavy traffic and then good luck trying to find a parking lot. - dido

I almost didn't make reservations because we would be arriving on a Sunday in early May. Glad I did because the park was full. We read all the great reviews about the park entrance and had no problem with the approach to the campground. If you are very organized you can get a senior citizens pass well in advance and save quite a bit. Monday was a different day in the park. Trails empty of people and the park quiet. We stayed here because of the proximity to BWI airport. The drive to pick up our family was easy and uneventful. - travelnurse

The park is very shaded with black top roads and level graveled sites. As with most Maryland parks no water on the site. If you are lucky you can get a site close to a water spigot and run water to fill your tank with a long hose. In this case we were there only for two days so we did okay. Fire pit and picnic table were on the site.
We arrived west bound and went through the tunnel. Our height requirement was 10.5 feet so we cleared the tunnel height clearance of 11.1 feet. Not having been here before we didn't see any signs as to location of the campground; had to stop a ranger to ask directions. A couple of signs would have helped. Also the entrance was somewhat confusing at night after closing. You have to enter the exit to enter the code and go about 100 feet to the camping sites entrance and enter the same code again. This was a little redundant I thought. The lower rates for the camping fee is for senior citizens of Maryland, they enjoy about a 40% discount. All things considered, a very nice park. At&T was good. - Nautilus

Loved this park. A little difficult to get in and out of but it was worth it. Be very careful on your approach to the park. One entrance has a very low bridge and most RVs can't get in. Call the park for directions. The road down to the campgrounds themselves is very steep, just go slow and be careful. Camp hosts were great, sites very clean. The sites are nicely spaced and shaded. Good walking all through the park. A walk down to the river a must. - The Sandbox

We stayed 4 nights at Ft. Belvoir Travel Camp. Very well maintained, all sites were paved, easy in and out. The view was lovely and waterfront. Nice and quiet and easy to get to the Metro station at Franconia-Springfield to travel into DC for sight seeing. We highly recommend utilizing your military/DOD benefits to utilize this lovely Travel Camp. - landsmitchell
Sep 2015 - $50.00
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
