12 Parks near Marbury, Maryland
Jul 2013 - $32.00
This is a little known gem in the Maryland State Park system. Very quiet and shady sites. Extremely clean. Easy access to dump station on way out of campground. All sites had a fire ring, picnic table, and large "patio" area adjacent to the site. Most sites are wide without trees obstructing back-in access, though there is PLENTY of shade. Multiple overflow parking areas available if needed, but we were able to fit camper, meg-cab dually and a 2nd vehicle within our site. Reservation website lists 30' max, but we found 8 sites we could easily fit our 43' triple axle triple slide 13'6" tall 5th wheel on. We were also able to maneuver on interior roads without issue. Short walk to the marina, historical museum, fantastic playground and new nature center. Wonderful shaded walking/hiking paths. Easy access to DC for those wanting to see the sights in the Capital. - User3193

This is a really nice park with plenty to do and see. Maybe a little too "woodsy". Sites are a little small but there is plenty of space between them. For a state park, I would have expected better trails. With the river so close, fishing and boating is very popular here. There is even a museum in the park. - tonymaldonado

This is a great park just outside of the capital beltway. Lots to do in this park: Mini Golf, Frisbee Golf, rent paddleboards or kayaks, hike and swim in a pool.
The sites are under trees and even thought it was 85 degrees out, it did not feel that hot. They also have great cabins that we stayed in.
The bathrooms were clean and the laundry room (2 washers & 2 dryers) was clean too.
Everyone was friendly, and the roads are well maintained. No complaints at all. - The Bees

Pohick Bay Regional Park is located in a wooded area. Roads are paved.
Sites are dirt, but they were putting gravel down. Our site also had timbers placed around it to help contain gravel. It was the only one with the timbers.
There are only 10 sites with full hookups. Other sites have water and electric or shared water at some tent sites.
There are two bath houses with laundry areas, but only one was open as we were here out of season.
The office has wifi. We were able to get a weak signal from it with our Jefatech repeater using an outside antenna. Later in the week, we moved to a second site and could not pickup the wifi, so the coverage is spotty away from the office.
There was a loop with some small rustic cabins. Also, there were a couple new cabins build recently in another area overlooking the river. These appeared to have central AC or heat. - B D HOWie

This park is heavily wooded off the Pohick Bay which is part of the Occoquan River Water Trail, connecting Occoquan Regional Park and the wildlife refuges of the Potomac River. We were there at a bad time, after some heavy rains with lingering showers. It made the air damp, the ground was wet but the site was not muddy. Our biggest problem was backing into the site with our 37' trailer. It took several attempts. Luckily no one was in the two sites across the street from ours so we were able to maneuver easier. The site was fairly level. There are two great reasons to choose this campground. The water sports are great for family fun plus you are within 35-40 minutes of the center of Washington DC. We were using it as an overnight spot, heading for western New York's Finger Lakes and New England to enjoy the fall foliage. - Lucy's Friend

Stayed here for about a month. Good spacing between sites, but relatively no shade on any of the sites. Hookups were a little different, water/electric/cable towards the very front of the site, sewer at the back. A bit of a challenge if your electric is in the back etc. Sites are not as level as you would hope for in a newer RV park. The challenge was not just side to side, but front to back too. Some semi-permanent residents that "shuffle" from site to site, but still a nice place. - RobT

Spent 4 nights here. This is a beautiful new camp in a beautiful location on the river. The facilities are new with concrete pads for vehicle and patio. My only negative comments are: I think $40.00 is a little much for a military site. When they installed the concrete pads you would think they could have been level, but few to none are level and some are off a lot. The bath/laundry house is very nice, clean and well equipped, but it sits on a hill on one edge of the campground. It could have been more centrally located. But even with the cost I would stay here again. - trav

The pros: This RV park is located in a beautiful area right on the Potomac River. The cons: The kids who work in the office are clueless about all things RV with no understanding of hookups, necessity of level sites or even the ability to give simple directions or information about the base. Very few sites are level in any direction (i.e. side-to-side or end-to-end) to the extent that we had to try about a half-dozen sites before we found one in which our motor home auto-leveling system could level the coach. Aside from restrooms and laundry facilities, there are no other amenities in the park itself. Other military RV parks in the Washington DC area are either much cheaper. There are many other superior and cheaper places to stay that do not have the design flaws that cannot be corrected at Ft Belvoir. The management and Fort Belvoir leadership have no idea of what is important to RV'ers. If they did this campground would have been better designed, better built, and more military camper friendly with respect to policies, prices, reservations and cancellations. Do yourself a favor, drive on by and stay north of the city. This is the most expensive military campground that we have encountered in seven years of full-timing and has the poorest site design. - flrvers466

Friendly staff, but not really a place for someone just passing through. All but 8 sites are for seasonal campers. The overnight sites are grouped closely together on a grassy slope. We will not stay here again. - Dave51
Sep 2013 - $30.00
This is a great value, what you pay vs what you get. The owners were super nice, went out of their way to make us feel welcome. I believe all but 8 sites are for seasonal campers. The sites are back to back, grass sites between the bath house and pool. The 30 amp power was good, but did not need to run the a/c. The bath house wasn't great, but was clean. This was an amazingly friendly group of people, made us feel very welcome. I would stay here again, great waterfront location, great kayaking nearby! - SteveandAnn

When this park is empty, it looks like little more than an open field, not very inviting. But, it does fill up on the weekends, and is a VERY friendly and kid-safe place. There is a down-home party atmosphere, so if you are looking for peace and quiet, this campground may not be the best fit. The pool is clean, the restrooms and showers are immaculate, and there is tons for the kids to do. We shared a power pedestal with other campers, but the 30amps was enough to power both of our AC units without a single problem. They do not have 50amp available. Wonderful church service on Sunday mornings at the pavilion. We will definitely camp here again as often as possible! - User3193

Very clean, easily accessible with excellent service and convenient to I-95. - Charles and Joyce Dixon
Aug 2016 - $54.00
For what you get, it sure is very high. I don't usually complain about price, but there is nothing to offer. Electric was so, so when the AC's were on. Sewer connection was not very convenient. It was at the end of site. - xflyhighx

This campground was a total disappointment and is overpriced. It is not being maintained well. Roads have deteriorated. Sites are unbelievably short. There are issues with adequate and intermittent power. In desperate need of rehabilitation and redesign to accommodate modern rigs. Short RV's may find it adequate. We will not be back to this facility. - americanrascal

This is a beautiful 18,000 acre park operated by the National Park Service. The web site indicates RV's are restricted to 32 ft, but this is not true. Larger units can be accommodated. All sites are heavily wooded and the campground is 7 miles from the entrance to the park. The staff and campground host are very helpful and friendly. This is a campground for people who want to be close to nature. If you desire swimming pools, etc., this park is not for you. It is within a 1/2 mile of I-95 located just 30 miles south of Washington D.C. - geodrake

This is a National Park facility, 18,000 acre forest with 100 camp sites carved out of the forest. Reservations are available, but not necessary. All sites have paved parking. Many miles of hiking trails. A concession operated RV park with full hook-ups is available, but does not provide access to the park. - geodrake

We stopped here for one night on our way to VT. It was a lot like a state park in terms of ruggedness. Our site did not have sewage and I am not sure if all the sites are like that. The spaces on our side were very close together, we couldn't open our canopy because it was so close to the trees. It would have been nice had they spaced the RV sites out more. I am not sure if all of them were that close. The pool and brewery were a nice touch. The bathrooms were clean. We had an issue with our RV's plumbing and the manager was very helpful and even had a part for us. The whole staff was very friendly. We would stop here again for a night. - woowoo

Not big rig friendly. Very small sites, on hills and hard to get into. Paid for a full hook up site and owner decided to work on the water by our site without telling us, ended up with our water being on and off for 5 days. Went to talk with him and see about possibly moving sites since all other sites had water and instead he told us to get out. He refuses to fix his issues at campground and as soon as questioned its either his way or get out. - Cc1595

Interior roads are tight, but park personnel guided my 43 ft motorhome into my space with no problem. Cable and sat reception were both good. Wifi was sporadic. Site was level, but cramped. Pool was clean and large enough to enjoy without feeling crowded. - westwill3

I have used this park many times as I live 2 miles down the road. The entire campground is newly paved asphalt. The electric is new 30 Amp service. They maintain the camp very well. They are always blowing the roads and site of leafs and debris as it is nestled in the woods. most sites however are unusable to large RV's as they are on a steep grade or to short. There are only 25 sites total of which only 3 or 4 would accommodate a 40'er. It is a very pretty park, very quiet and safe. There are never more than 3 or 4 guest in the park at one time. I really enjoy this park. Closest to DC for the tourists. Only 10 mins to the Branch ave Metro Station. 2 week total length stay. The bath house is in serious need of upgrading. They say that it is scheduled to be replaced next year. - Powerstroke

Stayed here for a few days while visiting family in Waldorf. As with many CGs signage could be much better for finding CG office then CG after that. Special care is needed for those with larger rigs at CG entrance. Deep ditches either side of narrow entrance with evidence from those who didn't notice them. Interior roads somewhat narrow & needing extra care with larger rigs. A mixture of site pad sizes small to very long. Nothing really level. Again, the larger the rig the more limited the usable site. Some noise from nearby Andrews AFB but it is essentially an urban CG so noise goes with the territory. We have a 5th wheel. - Veebyes

This small campground is in a very convenient location in Clinton. We loved the senior rate. You can drive a short distance to get the Metro at Branch Station, which will take you into the D.C. area. You pick your site here and then go out of the campground, down the road and through another part of the park to register. It is not a short walk. The water hookup was in an odd spot, but the water was good, as was the 30 amp electric. The heavily wooded sites were partially paved but most were super small. Roads were paved also. There is plenty of privacy. We picked up many local antenna TV stations. The bathrooms were unacceptable & beyond being able to be really clean. They need to be gutted & totally redone. The men’s shower was so bad that men were using the only women’s shower, which is secured with only a shower curtain. The dump station was a very odd mechanism and the tank overflowed once we began the process of dumping. It was beyond awful. The bathroom and dump station problems pull this rating way down. We will look for another solution next time unless the bathrooms are redone. - R&S

This campground is very nice with lots of trails, a lake, and an equestrian loop. Sites are spacious and shaded. Very close to DC. We would camp here again. - rebcon

Sites were very nice, trails were in very good shape considering the recent hurricane. Park was patrolled regularly. Staff was helpful and friendly. For the surrounding area being so close to DC and Waldorf, it was quiet. Stayed over the weekend when the leaves where just changing colors. Will revisit. - MacQude

What a great find! Close to DC and good shopping but still remote and quiet. Very reasonable rates. We had no trouble parking our 33 foot fifth wheel there. - paylor
