Ok what can you say for 16 bucks a night! In Washington DC,the park is part of our National Park system, It located just about 12 miles out of Dc and about 3 miles from the train station, the camping is dry camping only, the park is very large as in perhaps 100 acres, it is secluded right in the middle of a metropolitan area. be warned, it is dry camping only, no hook ups. Generators are allowed between 6 am to 10 PM, but who starts a Gen set at 6 am? , we ran ours from 8 to 9 am and from 7 to 9 PM, most did not run them that long, we have a 43 foot motor home, there are a few sites we could get into but mostly not, most areas are heavily wooded so no satellite service. the park was not busy so we found a site #41, the RV barely fit but the car did not, we were able to park it in another site but would not be able to if it was busy, perhaps it would have been a good walk to get car. We camped at Greenbelt Park in a Motorhome.

This is a real nice park very close to DC, train station is close by, all paved roads and plenty of hiking, we found it to be quite.

We stayed here while visiting DC. I was concerned with security prior to my arrival, but was very surprised to find a park that made me feel safe. The NP police headquarters, for all National Parks in this area, is located at the park entrance. The park is completely surrounded by a huge forest. Though it is close to I-495, we could barely hear traffic at night. We were there mid September when the sites were 75% unoccupied, one loop was completely closed for the season. Our site was paved. Handicap and a few others are paved with asphalt, but most are gravel/dirt. $16 regular nightly fee or $8 with senior/disabled pass. No sites have hookups. There is water (hose bib) within 100' of most sites. There was only one dump station, which will be problematic during high use times. I will stay here again spring or fall, but not during high use summer season. We camped at Greenbelt Park in a Travel Trailer.

Tips for other Campers:

Downtown DC is 20-30 minutes away when traffic is good, though during rush hour more than 1 hour.

A large variety of shopping and fuel can be found nearby.

Many locals use the park for walking, jogging, biking during the day, but the park closes to them at dusk. Campers have access 24/7.

This was a great place to leave RV and explore D.C. Metro is a half hour walk away. Easy to use but make sure you have $5 notes handy for the machines. Two toilet blocks but only one has a shower. Dry camping so don't expect electric water or sewer. No wifi but tmobile worked fine here. Very pretty setting. Apparently they still have ticks but we weren't bothered by any. Great option close to DC. We camped at Greenbelt Park in a Motorhome.

This is our "go-to" campground when visiting Washington, DC. Campground is close to 2 Metro stations for easy access to DC. Sites are spacious and plentiful. We had no problems finding a site for our 37' 5th wheel. The campground is dry camping, but we had a generator to help and fresh water and waste water carriers that kept us in our site for our full 2 week stay. At $8 a night with the Senior pass for National Parks, this is one of the best values we've found. We camped at Greenbelt Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Interior of park continues to be infested with massive amounts of ticks in 2013. We kept our dog inside our RV except for potty breaks, and she still got multiple ticks on leg and under ear flap, even with Frontline Plus II. Tree limbs need to be pruned and trimmed back away from the roads, continues to be a problem in 2013, too. Good AT&T iPhone signal. Virgin Mobile Wi-Fi card service too weak to use inside this park. The only thing about this park that brings us back is the location. We camped at Greenbelt Park in a Motorhome.

Stayed one night, $8 with Senior Pass. Very nice campground, good hosts. This is not a well known campground. Right near highway. Hiking trails which are kept up. No amenities. Helicopters stopped around 7:30. Bathrooms were heated (no showers), hot water. But, as others have indicated, they are in need of an upgrade. Water available. We will probably stay here on our way back to MA because it's really like camping without the frills. We camped at Greenbelt Park in a Motorhome.

Too many ticks. They have not fixed the problem in years. We live across the street in heavily wooded Old Greenbelt, and there are no ticks like here. Too many low branches sticking into loop roads and campsites. Management needs to trim more. Most of the sites are unlevel. Beautiful park and great location and price. We camped at Greenbelt Park in a Motorhome.

With other nearby RV parks charging upwards of $70 a night, this conveniently located park is a steal. Big rigs can fit in the D loop, and the park is not at all crowded. This is a beautiful wooded park, and campground is about 2.5 miles deep into the park. But all city conveniences are located just outside the entrance. Most RVers apparently are turned off by the lack of any hook-ups. However the park is well shaded, so we didn't even need air conditioning. You can run your generator til 10pm. A dump/refill station is available. Self-register and pick a site. A mile walk to public transportation. We stayed 6 days and that wasn't even long enough to take in all the free museums and attractions in D.C. Free concerts every night at the Kennedy Center. The park has a 14 day limit. We camped at Greenbelt Park in a Motorhome.

Rate quoted is with National Parks Senior Pass. This is Washington DC's best kept secret. Park police training facility on site so good security. Good air TV signal. Good Verizon phone & data. No reservations available or needed. This is our 5th time here. We stayed a week. About 2 miles to two different transit stations. Dump station and water available. We camped at Greenbelt Park in a Motorhome.

Nice rustic campground. Easy to spot deer. Easy access off beltway. Pretty good big rig access in the D loop. We have a 40 motorhome and I don't like tree limbs touching it. The dump station is located in the C loop and the trees were not trimmed very well in that loop. We only stayed two nights so we did not use the dump station. We camped at Greenbelt Park in a Motorhome.

Price with Senior Pass. Water and dump is available. Sites paved but not real level. Great cell and Verizon data. About 2 miles from transit stations. Never crowded in spring or fall (haven't tried it in summer). This is our forth time here and will always come back due to the reasonable price. No reservations needed. Stayed one week this time. One bath has a shower. We camped at Greenbelt Park in a Motorhome.

We are travelling in a self contained bus and were quite pleased with this campground. Dry camping, sewer dump and drinking water included in fee, access for our 45' bus without problems, we used site 111 loop D, and moved in and out with ease. Dump station is in the back of loop C. Pick site, then pay and register, first come first served. Lots of ticks and chiggers when we visited, but close to Washington, and no problems driving to the city with our family of 9 (cheaper than the Metro). 2 and 3 hours free street parking on the mall nearest the Capitol. Free city parking in East Potomac Park lot, near the Lincoln Memorial- about a 12-15 min walk to the national mall. We camped at Greenbelt Park in a Motorhome.

Great campground for a dry campground. Perfect location, close to DC and everything. Price was great. No hookups, but there are sewer dump and fresh water fill. We were able to get our 43 ft. motorhome in. Sites are asphalt paved. Most are unlevel. But ours was perfectly level. Just look around for a level one. Check-in was self-check-in, just drop the money in the box. There are ticks, so just be aware and remove whenever you see one on your body or dog. Bathrooms do need to be updated, very old, and dead bugs. But for the location, the price, the paved RV pad, and the perfect levelness of our particular site, the campground gets a 9. We camped at Greenbelt Park in a Motorhome.

We went to this park during Memorial Day weekend. The Campground Hosts were wonderful and very helpful. During the weekend, the showers and bathrooms were filthy but on the Monday and Tuesday they were much cleaner. The shower curtains were moldy and the plumbing needed work. There was a posted warning about ticks and chiggers and they were not kidding. Every evening that I was outside I came in with at least six of the critters on me until I started soaking myself in deet. The park is a lovely gem so close to DC but the bathrooms and the critters made it less then pleasant to stay here. We camped at Greenbelt Park in a Motorhome.

We stayed here at the beginning of February, had snow on the ground! Only one or two other campers in the whole park. Used it as a base for going into Smithsonian and other DC sites. One day took the Metro train in from nearby station and parked car at station. Next day drove the car into capital area. Nice wooded campground with good buffer between other roads. Various stores and grocery choices just outside the park. Right off highway. We camped at Greenbelt Park in a Motorhome.
