12 RV Parks near Frederick, Maryland
Oct 2015 - $45.00
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

This is the fourth campground / RV Park we've stayed at in the DC area. $51 for an electric only site is expensive even for this area. The campground's D loop is the only one with electric service, and has water spigots along the road every few sites. This loop has some sites that can handle big rigs, but some sites are only suitable for small RVs. Most sites are unlevel; we needed three wood blocks under each of our rear wheels and more under our jacks, so you probably won't be able to rely just on your jacks. The campground is heavily wooded which is lovely and gives lots of privacy between sites, but also means it's dark inside the RV even during bright sunny days. Interior roads are heavily wooded and some tree scraping was unavoidable. There are a few walking trails through the woods which were great for walking our dog. There are two bath houses, one in E loop and one in C loop. They were reasonably clean but full of webs and bugs in the corners. While the water was hot and pressure was good, the shower stalls were tiny with no shelves to hold your toiletries, and share a changing room separated from the rest of the bathroom by a curtain. There's an electronic gate at the entrance to the park, and when you check in they give you the code to get in any time. AT&T and Verizon both worked fine. Access to I-270 is very quick and easy. We'll likely stay here again because it's the closest park for visiting family. If it wasn't for the very unlevel sites and high price, we'd give Little Bennett a higher rating. - LifeRebooted

Be prepared to clean your campsite upon arrival, one of the worst we have experienced and way overpriced for the level of service and amenities provided. Staff was fantastic but appears to be poorly managed. Campground is in desperate need of basic maintenance and upgrades. - J K M

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

Site was very shaded, and quite secluded. Camping pad was nice and level, although the driveway was slightly sloped. Nice amount of space in between sites. Very short walk to bath house. Campground was relatively empty our first night (Thurs), but filled up the next day. Still, heard hardly any noises from our neighbors. Camp hosts were very friendly, and came over to introduce themselves and go over park info shortly after we checked in.
Facilities/Overall Park: Bath house was centrally located. Pretty average as far as cleanliness goes, but everything worked, and the showers were hot. Great recycled tire playground, and awesome nature center w/ turtles and various birds of prey on site in the Manor Area. If you head over to the Houck Area of the park (about a 15-20 min drive), you'll find the lake, falls, and another campground. The Houck area definitely tends to be more crowded. I can't speak to the campground, but the lake is nice, and the falls are beautiful. The hike up wasn't too strenuous, either; my husband, dog, and 5-year-old handled it just fine. - Jenventola

Campground loops were at the top of a hill away from the rest of the park. sites were good sized with lots of woods behind most sites. High power line did run through nearby. Cell phone reception was good. Day use area at lake was free to campers, but parking filled up on holiday weekend and it was a long, steep hill to walk down to the lake and back. - direwolf2001

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 park is easy to access from main roads and interstate but far enough back that the only "road noise" is a racetrack/drag strip that is near-by. As you enter the park, there is a convenient park station that you have to pass to check-in; parking lot can easily accommodate 4-5 large RVs plus vehicles. Campground has limited access with gate and keypad; it is fairly narrow and oversized RVs may be challenged. Dump station is on left as you access to fill up with water since only electric is available. Sites are then easy to access with well maintained, paved roads. There are 3-4 ring-roads that are alphabetical but named (Ash, Birch, Cedar, etc). Sites are easy to access although different sizes. Most are on the side of the sloped hill and at different elevations. All have covered by trees and many large rigs came in. Some sites have sloped driveways although the sites are fairly level (ours required 2 blocks on the right side that you couldn't tell by looking at it). Very quiet. Bath houses are centrally located but we did not use. Water points are throughout the ring road. Ring roads are curvy and long travel trailers would need to go slow; 35 and below probably no problems (at least on Cedar). We stayed in a 25' Travel Trailer. - Next Mission

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

Stayed 17 days, received weekly rate. Campground got a lot of business on the weekends and activities are planned. The camp staff was very friendly and helpful. The roads a little winded off the exit but navigable. Taking Hwy 97 off I 70 allows you to make a left turn into a lieu of taking Hwy 94. - bkboren

I struggled where to give my rating. Based on a few things I have given a 6 due to 1. they put us on 1X (don't take this site!), it is right beside the entrance and office and the busiest place in the park; there were I'm sure other sites they could've given, we were right beside the park host (really not sure why, this is an rv park with an office), their site should be 1x! 2. they have an entrance gate with a wooden bar that swings up, it is only activated by a staff member who sits in a cart a 100 yards ahead by the office; so if he's gone potty? you don't get in!! stupid system. And $62 per night is way too much for this park. The roads inside are easy to drive if you get a site further in. Hookups were good but no cable on this site, a staff member had to split off from a site behind us. All sites are gravel and fairly wide. - North America in 90 days

We stayed at Ramblin' Pines Campground in April after we bought our camper. We want to try out things on the camper, and it was local. Very nice people (staff), clean for the most part, quite, easy in & out with trailer, easy hook-ups. - M D Hirsch

Streets through town to get to park are very narrow. After you cross railroad tracks, be ready for a really dusty potholed road to campground. Check in was weird - we were given orange bands to display so staff could know we weren't "squatters". Finally got to "campsite" to find electrical and water hookups were at least 50 feet away. Campsite was on the edge of potential water hole if it rained any at all. Tried to get a refund as we decided we were NOT going to stay. Were told refunds had to be approved through general manager at main off-site office. Called and of course he had just left office for the day. We left to find something else. Refund was finally approved 3 days later. All we can really say is: JUST DON'T EVEN THINK ABOUT GOING HERE unless you see it first. Best thing that can be said is that the campground is on the Potomac River. - gwvwadc

My husband and I had planned to stay here for our first overnight stay in our new 26' TT. The drive to the campground was the first issue we ran across. The roads through town to get to the campground were very narrow and it was hard to make turns at stop lights without running up over curbs. Once we got through town and over the railroad tracks, we went down a very narrow gravel road, pass the sewage treatment plant and arrived at the campground entrance. I will say the lot we attempted to setup at had a very nice view overlooking the river. However, it was an extremely unlevel lot and we did not have very good success trying to setup the camper. After ruining one of our stabilizer jacks, we decided to pack up and go down the road to a different campground. - HappyCampers508

The road to the campground is narrow as everyone has said. The sites are on grass, very little shade. Some are pull through & some are back ins. The utility pole is far but if we pulled up, we'd be too close to the road. The road inside campground is very bumpy. Only one bathhouse, not convenient for everyone. Port a potties around though. The sites are long but neighbors are close by. Fire rings & picnic table. Playground & volleyball net. Hiking, biking trails. OTA TV local channels. Dump site use inconvenient. - jcpjane

Turns are very tight. If you're a MH towing, disconnect in their very large parking lot. Sites are all on a hill but so is the entire state. The utility side of the site has very large rail ties which can make it difficult to open basement doors for hook up. The cable connection ended in a male plug which required a male-to-male connector. Luckily, an employee was passing by and got one from another site. Overall the individual sites are lacking maintenance. Wi-if was very slow and required repeated sign on. - Rd yacht

Over priced for what you get. It's not worth it. No escort, tight turn getting into site and worst getting out. Luckily no vehicles were parked in the way. What once was narrow asphalt drive is now crumbling rocks. Had to turn sharp by a power pole to exit, not easy with 39 ft. 5th wheel. First stay here was in 2011. No improvements at all. Wi-fi was bad, cable was as bad this time as before. Do not intend to stay here again. Three strikes and you're out. Stayed three times and that's enough. - OKeadle

As with most KOAs, the sites were tight and the roads and sites were gravel. We had a great site with a bit more room than many, but most were fairly close to each other. The employees were very helpful, and there are a TON of activities for the kids at this campground -- more than the other KOAs I've visited. The camp store was very large and very well stocked. We enjoyed the movie theater during a summer downpour, and (while it needed some repairs) the mini-golf was great. The pool was good sized but could use some work, and it would be great if a lifeguard was on duty. We witnessed multiple kids breaking pool rules and endangering themselves and others, and unfortunately their parents weren't doing anything about it. We camped with friends who used a cabin in the back of the park. While the cabin itself was acceptable, the road down to it was in horrible shape with large ruts. Roads in the campground were, as a rule, very tight. Despite these points, however, we had a very nice time and would definitely stay there again if we're in the area. - SteveMM

Our $10 rate was based on Coast to Coast. We knew they would not offer us full hookups, based on information in our C2C resort guidebook. Our site was much flatter than many of the reviews I've seen. We didn't use the pool but it looked nice and uncrowded even though the park was pretty full. Had no trouble maneuvering our 30' travel trailer and was able to back in with ease. Overall good experience. Quieter than I expected during the summer months. - Joe525

We have visited here in the past, and can see that they have worked hard to solve the sewage and electrical problems. They have a great recreation area, that includes a basketball court, shuffleboard, volleyball, a pavillion. and an Olympic size pool. Plenty of activities scheduled for the kids, and re-enactors camping in their area. The lots aren't large, but wooded. They have an enclosed dog park. AND it is in Gettysburg. - lynette47

We accidentally got in a bad spot so I can't really speak on that. The place is "ok" I guess. The people who work there are nice enough but they didn't have ice and some other things. There was no real space for the dogs but there were some trails in the woods - full of seeds that stuck all over the place. The internet worked well. - Candalee
