If we hadn't paid this high rate, I might be more kind. But we had a huge generator running day and night within 50 feet and a second 200 feet away. The cable hookup was in the next site. The "free" Wi-Fi was a joke--it takes 3 minutes to open a traditional site. But they offer you a "speed-up" for $$. Their café had only half of the things we wanted to order. The lifeguard sat while a stranger rescued a toddler. C'mon folks -- live up to your billing! We camped at Duncan's Family Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Dirty, dirty, dirty. Had to shower the dogs after every walk. More gravel in the coach than a pit. Was not told when checking in that the park did not have power, 12 hours later generators were running. They were kind enough to trim branches so we could leave. We camped at Duncan's Family Campground in a Motorhome.

October trip, so park was almost empty. Some seasonals. Nicely wooded. Some road noise which probably would not be noticeable if normal park noises were happening. Interior roads need grading, but it is the end of a long rainy season. Site was roomy and easy to back into. Wi-Fi weak and intermittent. Water pressure very high. Would definitely return if in the area. We camped at Duncan's Family Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Just spent five LONG weeks in this campground while working in the DC area. Could not take it any longer and moved 30 minutes further south. The electric is pitiful. They actually burned power cords on several neighboring RVs and the power panel on one. Our EMS was constantly cutting our power off to protect our coach and water pressure is non-existent; all the while management blamed the electrical problems on everyone's rigs and accepted no responsibility. And, they had the audacity to raise the monthly rate another $100. Could not get out of there fast enough and will Never go back! The sites are small and nothing but sand and leaves and not worth near what they are charging.Don't care how close to DC they are! Such a shame, could be nice but the owner doesn't have a clue! The $35 nightly rate is based on the almost $1,100 a month they were charging, which included electric. We camped at Duncan's Family Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Staff was very friendly and helpful. Information was provided on attractions nearby and detailed instructions on how to get to the nearest metro to travel into the city. They have a little nature trail to walk on. Sites are good sized and everything kept clean. One of the few parks we've been at where you can set your trash and recycling out at the curb for pickup. We full-time in our RV with our two cats and spent eight days here. We camped at Duncan's Family Campground in a Motorhome.

We chose this campground as it is closer to Mt. Vernon than our usual destination when visiting the DC area. We arrived quite late, but our check in information was in the 'late arrivals' box at the welcome center. Our site was OK, nothing great. It was reasonable level, but just long enough. We did not avail ourselves of any of the activities, as we were there only as a base and as such it was fine. One nice feature is that the pool is open late, 9pm and 8pm all except Sunday when it closes at 6pm. We would return here if in the area as it is closest to Annapolis.

Close to DC and Annapolis. Showers had poor water flow and were dirty. RV sites are on dirt, mostly level, hook ups are at the back of the site - a long power cord is necessary. Roads through the park have potholes. There's a busy street close by and you can sometimes hear traffic noise, especially early weekday mornings. We camped at Duncan's Family Campground in a Travel Trailer.

We've gone to Duncan's the last 3 years for the "kids are special" weekend. This year, we talked another couple into coming with us, and they were sold! Such friendly staff that works there! The planned activities they had for the kids were off the chart! Pool is great, very pet friendly. They have a doggie park, playground, and mini golf.

We were not warmly welcomed in the office on arrival, but next day there were only temporary staff because regulars were out sick, so perhaps that was the reason for what felt like a cool reception. Nice wooded surroundings, but sites are very close with alternating hookups such that for us, the hookups were on the door side. Two fire-pits on one side because of this awkward staggered arrangement. Had to park the truck elsewhere as no room on our site. It's off season so it was raining, making the sites and roads very muddy as they were inadequately graveled. Our whole site was flooded for two days. Small laundry was clean, but expensive. $2 for small washer tub (no large ones), $3 to dry a load of towels. Excepting those points, and some trashy-looking permanent units, it looks like it would be an okay place in season with its pool and playground for the kids. Would have rated it higher if sites were well graveled. We camped at Duncan's Family Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Great location to visit Washington DC (45 minutes away) but only 21 miles. Staff was very helpful and the sites are easy to get into. Probably very busy during the summer, but lots of space this month! We camped at Duncan's Family Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Big rig tight! When you arrive, park and walk to your site to make sure you will fit. There is one corner we almost did not make it around. Roads are paved, sites are gravel and grass. Electric was a little low but not enough to set off our surge protector, even running both A/Cs. Lot of trees, do not count on satellite; nice selection of cable channels. Pet friendly (breed restrictions call to verify), spotless, employees are very helpful. The sites on the back row alternate, so you can park door facing door with another camper. Good mix of campers - seasonals, full-timers, weekenders. I marked it a 7 because it is a bit tight, expensive and they need to give out an instruction sheet when you check in with info on what to do with trash, cable channels, store hours, etc. We camped at Duncan's Family Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Awesome campground. My husband and I are insurance adjusters and we travel all over the United States and this is by far one of our top picks in campgrounds. We stayed here while working for about 3 weeks with our 2 kids, one 15 and the other 10, plus we had our 3 dogs. What I liked the most was all the kids and kid activities. My kids never wanted to leave the park and were outside all day playing in the pool that has a life guard on duty at all times, a pool slide, pool toys and large enough for the whole campground. Plus there is a convenience store right next to the pool that has home made pizza, nachos, ice cream, slushies and all kinds of stuff with an outdoor picnic area. They have this cool little stage with picnic tables all around where they have events for the whole family like movie night where they set up a movie screen and show family style movies. When the pool closes at 9pm, you walk right next door and watch a movie and eat. During the day they have scavenger hunts and all kinds of events for the kids. This place is 15 to 30 minutes from everywhere. There is Breezy Beach where you find sharks teeth and all kinds of historical places. Its easy access to Washington DC. We parked our vehicle at the Largo Metro Stop and took the metro to the Smithsonian. It was $9 a person and the metro train dropped us off right in front of the Smithsonian Museum of Natural History. It took all of 45 minutes. This park is clean. Lots of showers, laundry rooms and space between RV's. You can have a very shady spot or open spot. It's expensive out here in Maryland which we were not aware of however there are a lot of free activities and tourist stuff to do. I love this place and of course its pet friendly. It even has its own fenced in pet park. We camped at Duncan's Family Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Lots of stuff to do with kids at Duncan's. Lifeguards on duty at pool. Cute little café with pizza, ice cream and hotdogs. Friday or Saturday night they have outdoor family friendly movie night with a large blow up movie screen. Scavenger hunts for the kids during day. The owner is very creative and personal about keeping her guests happy. I really loved this park. We stayed there for 30 days while working and we had two kids with us. The kids never wanted to leave. We camped at Duncan's Family Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

I spent several months at this campground while working in the DC area. The staff is amazing,so helpful. I had trouble getting my awning out and the staff saw me and came right over to help. The restrooms are very clean and they have one in the front that is very new. I don't have kids but i saw a lot of kids here for the campgrounds Halloween. This place was packed two weekends in a row. It looked like a lot of fun. I can tell the Duncan family puts a lot of pride into their work. The roads are well maintained, not paved but okay. The site was big enough, the electric boxes look like they have had some repairs recently. All in all I would highly recommend this campground to anyone working in the area or to families that want to have a nice family camping spot.
