12 Parks near Frederick, 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

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

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

Talk about camping in the wild! This park is literally in the middle of nowhere. No Wi-Fi, no cable, no water, no sewer...just electricity.
Still it was a pleasant change of pace and very quiet. - dhaney1944

Well kept state park with a large campground. Electric loop is one of the older loops and sites are not all that level. We stayed in one of the H/C sites with electric in a tenting loop because access was easier. Each loop has a host site but only one of the five hosts was present. Campground is uphill from everything at the park and plan on driving down to the lake or trail heads. Within the park hiking available or just across the road to the larger Catoctin National Park with plentiful trails and rock outcroppings to visit. Lake has a couple of nice sand beaches and the falls were running due to recent rains. Park tends to get a lot of day use at the beaches but the campground is secluded and access restricted. Restrooms were clean and serviced daily. We camp here two to three times a season. - HR52

The reason for the 5 rating is mainly because the trees in the park need to be trimmed and pruned back. There are too many low branches, and limbs sticking out into the road. Extensive problem in this park. They recently poured loose gravel alongside all the interior roads, blocking access to even the campsite driveways, had to shovel it away, just to get our RV into the site. Thirty amp power breaker switch was weak, tripped easily, even while using less than 30 amps, breaker switches on pedestals simply need to be replaced. Otherwise park is beautiful. Be careful and drive slow on 77 into park, windy road with many sharp curves and tree limbs. Do not arrive in the dark. - univmd

In my 40 years of camping I have never felt so unwelcome as I did when entering this park today. Not only were we not permitted to access a perfectly open site until the 3 PM check-in time, but also we were directed to take our 30 foot motor and just go park it somewhere until it was time. We went to the lake, and the person there was seemingly unwilling to let us take our camper into the beach parking area, the only place there was decent parking anywhere around. Some training in public relations is in order. - SilverOtter

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

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

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
