Closest park in for visits to Annapolis and D.C. Have stayed here twice in past two years for that reason. This park is on bottom of my list of positive experiences with KOA parks. Staff was indifferent and otherwise pre-occupied. Large group of scouts tented, so staff could not keep ahead as pertains to cleaning restrooms. Did not pick up trash on site as other KOAs have done, no community building or evening activities. Their big plus is a bus ride into and out of D.C. Daily, for $13 each. I can settle for less campground service for the less stress of commuting into and out D.C. We camped at Washington DC / Capitol KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

The website says the pull-throughs are 60' - 70' long however ours barely held our 37' motorhome and we did not see any longer than 50'. Some of the deluxe sites had a concrete patio with wrought iron table and chairs along with extra seating, ours however, had a picnic table on a sloped small patch of grass. The sites are pretty close together and the "streets" to get into and out of the sites are very narrow. While we were there five nights we had two days with no water due to some issues they were having. The sewer hookup at our location was defective as the adapter couldn't screw into the connector and the office was aware of the issue - seems it was throughout the campground. The location is convenient to Annapolis and Baltimore as well as DC. We camped at Washington DC / Capitol KOA in a Motorhome.

We arrived at 12:15 PM and the office was closed until 1 even though their website says check in is at 12 noon. The sites are unleveled and needed a lot of additional blocks. My front tongue was so far up it couldn't go any further which made the camper feel funny. There was no cable for the price we paid. The bounce pillow cost and ADDITIONAL $6 for 30 minutes (isn't this why families choose KOA's)? The roads are narrow which makes navigating to your site difficult (and we didn't have anyone help us, he was on lunch break) and unpaved. The Internet was fair at best when it was working but it stopped a lot. Even though I reserved a back-in full hookup, KOA was going to charge me for a pull-through if I didn't say anything. Be careful. When I told her what I reserved, she said, "Let me see if I have anything available." This was Easter break and a bit early for the camping season and the camp was EMPTY. The camp "host" was not very friendly especially when my husband went to him after hours for something, he couldn't be bothered. The day we were leaving, we had a minor medical issue and asked if we could stay until 2 PM (no one was in our spot that night) and the office said, for $20 we could. My husband was asking for a favor and she said, "If I do it for you, I have to do it for everyone." I realize that but it was a minor medical issue and most people don't have that. We couldn't pack up fast enough to get away from that KOA. We stayed at another campground near by last time and would most definitely pay a bit more to stay at a much friendlier park. Also, careful with the GPS, it is a bit tricky to get into the park (not KOA's fault but a bit of a hassle). Over all, I would NOT recommend this KOA to anyone. Even the worker there said that the owners are not very nice. We stayed her for one week while visiting Baltimore, Annapolis and DC. The other campground close by would have been just as convenient. Don't waste your time at this KOA! We camped at Washington DC / Capitol KOA in a Travel Trailer.
Stay at the other campsite. You will still be able to see Ft. McHenry in Baltimore, the Naval Academy in Annapolis and all the wonderful sites Washington, DC has to offer.

The staff was very helpful. The park is tight and a challenge to a big rig. The sites are small and difficult to get into. We usually stay in College Park but decided we would stay closer to where our friends live. We camped at Washington DC / Capitol KOA in a Motorhome.
College Park (Cherry Hill) is a better value and is lower priced.

Convenient and relatively inexpensive for visiting DC. Our pull-thru site was not level and would require lifting front wheels off the ground to correct. Utility connections were convenient, water pressure was fair to good, good park wifi, very good Verizon 4G service. We camped at Washington DC / Capitol KOA in a Motorhome.

This park is centrally located to visit Baltimore, Annapolis and DC. It has both large pull thru and wooded shaded spots for tents and cabins and shady sites and full sun. Has wifi that goes in and out but it is free but it is Tengonet so it is not the fastest. The staff is incredibly helpful and the place is very clean. We camped at Washington DC / Capitol KOA in a Motorhome.

Very nice KOA with both wooded and open sites. Bath house clean and modern, with individual shower rooms. Staff was extremely helpful re: transportation to the sites in Washington. Just a couple of negatives to note: I understand the high price. It's a KOA near a major tourist city without a lot of RV options. But for this money I would expect cable TV and level sites. But there is no cable (but adequate antenna channels) and the staffer who directed us to our site commented that none of the sites are very level. Other than that, the place is fine and just about 60 minutes from DC and an okay place to use as a base for touring. We camped at Washington DC / Capitol KOA in a Fifth Wheel.
We used public transit to get to DC due to parking and traffic issues that always exist in the city. A Metro station with lots of parking is about 20 minutes away.

Too expensive for what you get. Partially graveled sites. Pull thru sites were short. Most people had to park their tow cars at an angle to fit. Dirt around the camping spot. Low water pressure, slow non dependable internet. I was quoted a rate on the phone and when I got there I was charged more. I mentioned it but no interest in correcting it (only a few dollars). Staff was fair at best. But - they were fairly full. They must not have competition. Take 25% off and it would be OK. We camped at Washington DC / Capitol KOA in a Motorhome.

This is a nice KOA in a very busy section of the US. The positive is that it succeeds in giving you a tranquil spot is the middle of chaos. There is nothing spectacular or horrible about this well run park. It has a nice pool, good Internet and fairly roomy spots, depending on which one you get. It has both wooded and open sites. We would return. We camped at Washington DC / Capitol KOA in a Motorhome.

Staff are outstanding; they go the extra mile to help. They have two bathhouses. Older bathhouse could use some updating. Newer bathhouse was nice. Some walking trails. Quiet campground. Fenced playground for dogs. Large playground for kids. Shuttle to the sights in DC such as Smithsonian and memorials. Convenient to grocery stores and Baltimore/DC. It saddens me that their rates have gone up drastically (an increase of $20/night). It's going to be difficult to afford at that price. We camped at Washington DC / Capitol KOA in a Travel Trailer.

We camped here 2 weeks to explore DC. The baths were kept clean, but the water pressure in the showers was weak. Also, the water has a slightly musty smell. Good on-site store, well-stocked. Good wi-fi. They have a daily van ($13/person/day) to take campers into & return from DC, but we rented a car instead to drive to the New Carrolton Metro Station and took the subway into DC each day. The nightly rate (even with our KOA ValuKard discount) was much higher than it should have been. We camped at Washington DC / Capitol KOA in a Motorhome.

Another pricey KOA for the facilities of the park. This is about an hour from downtown DC and the Baltimore, Annapolis area so the location is good. Just be sure to follow the GPS and road signs to get to the park. From when we were here last July and suggested they put in more 50 amp spots, nothing has changed. Still fewer than 10 of those and they have been full since we have been here with a few other spots from tent campers on up here at the park. They do have a shuttle to the area attractions and because this is a 20 minute ride from our family, we will continue to use the park. The price reflected is WITH our rewards card so for those not members it will be 10% higher. The weather has been great--70s this time of year and pleasant to sit out or tour on foot the area attractions. We camped at Washington DC / Capitol KOA in a Motorhome.

We have been in this park for a while now, so I can give a pretty good report. The park is near Baltimore and Annapolis and DC and you can tour all of them from here. The campground is pretty quiet late at night though you can hear some road noise from the jake brakes outs at night if they are very loud. It does not really offend though, but it is noticed as the rest of the time it is pretty quiet. They escort you to your site when you get here. The issue is that they have so many foreign motorhomes and rentals that they escort everyone. It is interesting to see. The bathhouses are clean and tidy, but they could use an extra dumpster on the weekend, but they make do. The sites are fairly level up front and on the sides. There is one section in the trees that has great shade, but the sites are not as level but I have not seen any issues with people getting level. They are also the closest campground to Johns Hopkins and right now there are two of us in the campground getting radiation treatments. They have bent over backwards to make sure both of us are ok. The other guy found out when he turned his head and broke his neck that he had cancer and they have moved things around to let him stay here till he can arrange getting his rig home and himself as well. They have a pool while small is comfy and their are activities for the kids. The grands visited and had a great time. It is pretty quiet at the end of August and till they close once school is in session, the campground will not be full. We had a heat wave and the power was a bit low, but we all survived. They are planning on adding more 50 amp sites too. There are great eateries close by, too. I will say that they do not allow more than a 2 week stay, as it is a county regulation. We camped at Washington DC / Capitol KOA in a Motorhome.

Park itself is well kept and clean, everything works as you can expect from a KOA. I give only six stars because I think that 69 USD for a pull-through with water & electric is way too expensive. If the price and traffic noise don't bother you, this is a recommendable park, however. We camped at Washington DC / Capitol KOA in a Truck Camper.

A bit cramped for a KOA. Narrow, single lane gravel access roads. Sites are level gravel with adequate spacing. Sites could use more gravel to better deal with rain. Power OK (118v w/ac running). Water pressure bit low (38psi). Some sewer connections are elevated making it difficult to get a slope on sewer. Wi-Fi OK (tengo, decent speed during day, abysmal at night). Trees from Hog Farm Road into campground are not fully trimmed on sides. OK if you drive down the center line. Significant highway noise. We will look elsewhere on next visit to area.
