Since my last visit the campground has become populated with permanent party personnel, making reservations difficult. Effectively half of the sites are occupied by long term occupants. It has become more of a housing area, rather than a FAMCAMP. - hw8200

I would expect that a campground associated with the US Naval Academy would be more up to date. This campground needs an upgrade to bring to the standard you find at USMA and USAFA. - hw8200

The campground is not in the Academy section of the Navy base. That makes it hard to find and difficult to get to. One has to drive through a residential area on a curvy road where there is a lack of signs pointing to the campground. That is one issue that makes it not big rig friendly. Another reason is that the interior campground road is gravel and hilly with some sharp turns. Most of the sites are concrete pads, but they are not long enough to provide plenty of space for a longer RV. I noticed just one pull through. Power is only 30 amp. There is no sewer. I did not use the dump station. The bath house is an older, heated, cinderblock building. It was clean, but adequate only to serve its purpose. The Wi-Fi signal is not generated from within the campground and is weak. There is nothing for the kids to do. A primitive area exists for tent use, but sites aren’t marked. Verizon 3G was fine. During another season, I suspect there would be little satellite signal reception because there a lot of trees. Over the air TV channels are plentiful. The campground is half full of permanents; most likely service members who are stationed there. It is a short drive to the full service commissary, Exchange, gas station, and golf course. Check in is at the MWR/gym facility that is several blocks past the campground. There are no convenient places to park an RV while you register. They honor the America the Beautiful card for a 50% discount and that is reflected in my rate. This is just an OK campground that is better suited for shorter rigs and those who want an inexpensive place to stage from while being a tourist. It won’t be on my return list. - RLM

This is a very nice park right on the water. All sites are paved. No issues with Sat' reception as there no large trees at the spots. Price is high for a MWR camp. Hard to justify when there are no additional things at campground. A bathhouse and just a couple of washers & dryers. Price is based on competition off base. The bad part of the camp is that 99% of the sites are not level. Many are horribly slanted. The water and electric are located at the front of the sites. Why? A ignorant contractor and clueless contracting office come to mind. Industry standards were not met. The MWR office has good people working there. They do their best with the lousy reservations software they are forced to use. They do their best to help out. They keep the camp clean and the sites up and running. Parking for toads or trailers is limited. There are not many parking spots for visitors and second vehicles. Be aware, they may ask you to put your trailer in long term during your stay. Commissary & PX are just across route 1 on the other side of base. Real easy to get to and from DC, Pentagon and other tourist sites. National Museum of the Army is going in at the fort. This Campground really needs to expand to accommodate the influx of visitors. 54 sites will no be enough. The self appointed host onsite (does not work for & is not affiliated with MWR) will help you get set up. He will also visit you a lot, and then some. - KodiTzu

Clean. Pricey. Wifi internet is atrocious. Make sure you have good cell internet as the camp wifi internet is really bad. - Zybane

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

The girl who checked us in rattled off a very fast, rehearsed and monotone speech with all of the information, rules and directions. We didn't catch any of what she said. We stayed here for a week. All of the sites in the loop that we were in circle around and back up to a noisy playground. Most of those sites at least have some foliage separating them from the playground, but our site was wide open to it. If you have young kids with you, site 22 is the place to be, but if you want quiet then you don't want this site. The road is heavily wooded and the site markers are wood poles placed at the corner of the site driveway and the road. This combination makes it very difficult to back in, even more so when there is someone else camping at the spot across the road which parallels the road and is very narrow. We had to go ahead, turn around in a different site, and then drive the wrong direction on the one way road in order to get into our site. The sites are all dirt with woods in between sites. They pick up the garbage at your site every day if you leave it by the road, although I did not see any information about recycling. It's convenient that they have laundry facilities, but we did have to run the dryer through two cycles each time we did laundry (we used both Comfort Stations and it was the same each time). The park/campground is located on a peninsula and I found that location to be somewhat far from anything else we wanted to do. We did enjoy seeing the bald Eagles in their nest at the cove. - Juniper94

A gem amid chaos. Nice park 22 miles from DC. Stayed in site 67 - only area of Park really suitable for MH. Heavy shade so no satellite, a few over the air digital channels. Level, gravel sites with full hookups. - GlobeTrotterRV3

Easy access to Metro about 30" away for touring activities in DC. For a state park campground, it was a beautiful, peaceful setting. No WiFi, but phone reception was OK. - Ronzo Rig

The 17 site daily campground is basically a sandy field alongside the beach. The sites 20-25 feet wide are separated by electric pedestals. Some sites have trees along side the beach so those sites get some shade. Tables and fire rings are also lined up along the beach. Sites are slightly messy. No big debris but lots of cigarette butts, bits of paper and plastic, plastic bottles, etc. The County does rake the beach. For a County as prosperous as Calvert they should do better. - RobertW

-Personal beach area
-Good power and water
-Nice warm water
-Boat and paddle board rental on site
-2 security gates
-Coincidentally spot 16 needs maintenance but we were given boards and assistance to get settled into the site
My family absolutely loved this campground! This was our first time staying at a public operated campground so some things took some getting used to. We were so pleased with the campground we are contemplating getting a seasonal site next year. We've been all the way to the Keys and haven't had as good of an experience as we had here.... - On_my_whey

Great beach front camping on the Chesapeake Bay. Campsites are very sandy (this is a beach remember) and have good 50 Amp power and water at each site. No sewer or dump station, just a honey wagon service twice a week. The weekends are very busy here as the location is so great.
Each campsite has a campfire ring on the beach behind the campsite. A great place to have a beach campfire. Swim, wade, boat right from the beach behind the campsite. The campsites are packed full on weekends as is the nearby day-use area. During the week it is much less crowded. There is a pretty big marina right next door also.
The sites are nice and long but fairly narrow. The beach area behind the campsites is a nice large shared use area for campers only. It is a nice sized beach that provides lots of room for the campers to spread out on right behind your campsite.
Reservations are by telephone only. This is a County Park run by Calvert County, Maryland. - eb145

This is a unique facility. The four sites are narrow, gravel, and fairly level. There is only electric (two with 30 amp and two with 50 amp service) and cable, no water or sewer. All this being said, it worked for us. RVs with slides on both sides would find the sites very tight. There was very good lighting. The members of the Lodge were extremely nice, and we were invited to dine with them. For $14 we had a wonderful meal, and were able to have wine for less than $3/glass. You need to time your arrival and departure carefully, because when Lodge members arrive, the parking lot is small, and cars will block egress to the sites. We would definitely return if in the area. If all sites were in use, it could get claustrophobic. - EdGuru

Prices have changed since previous review - 2015 new costs are $20 Elk member, $35 non. This is for electric only - or you can refill water by pulling up to front of building during times the place is closed. Closest dump is 10 miles away and is cost to sewer plant.
Other reviewer was right, get there early in the day to get your rig parked (4 sites, all back ins and the folks coming to the bar or meetings park on empty sites. Sites are really close - if you have opposing slides, you'll be inches to the next rig. And the landscaping between sites makes walking to the paved area difficult - and if it rains, it gets muddy quickly. Electric posts are at front edge of site, bring an extension cord if you plug in from the rear of your unit. Sites are right next to an outdoor bar and the horseshoe pits. They also hold turkey shoots on weekends so it gets rather noisy.
The plus to this location is proximity to Annapolis, just on the eastern side of the Bay Bridge. They have some picnic tables and a big fire ring near one site that's supposedly open to all campers. - yesmar

One of the nicer Elks Lodges - even open to non-members. Prices: $15 if member of this lodge, $20 if member of other Elks Lodge, $25 if non-member. Very nice people at lodge. There are 4 sites - 2 with 30-amp, 2 with 50-amp. Fresh water available at front of lodge to fill tanks. Sites are narrow, but plenty deep for the biggest of rigs. Try to come before 3pm when bar opens - if not, the lot may be difficult to maneuver to fill water and/or back into sites. We would stay here again. - campingandtravels.blogspot.com
