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.

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.

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.

The rate includes the KOA member rate. This is an excellent location for sightseeing in both Baltimore and Washington and there is a shuttle during the summer season for just that purpose. There are too few 50 amp sites, especially in the summer heat and when one has 2 ac units and only 1 can be used. The staff was friendly. There are activities for children and family without leaving the grounds, but there is a gas station less than 2 miles away and shopping for groceries and a vet about 6 miles away. The bathroom has had a water leak that had not been addressed, but since we are self-contained, that was not a problem. We would stay here again, but would make plans to get a 50 amp site if we were here in the middle of summer. We camped at Washington DC / Capitol KOA in a Motorhome.

The trailer spots in this campground are extremely unlevel, some to the point that you might feel your trailer may run away down hill. There was at least a foot difference between the front and rear of our thirty foot trailer. The front jack was at its extreme lower setting with only one small block under it. The spots up front are level looking but, no trees or shade of any kind. The spots are very cramped. Our tow vehicle was right up against our poor neighbors' picnic table. The fire ring was tight against the other neighbors' electrical and water supply.The Wi-Fi does not work in the wooded section. Typical KOA, overpriced.

Very nice place. We stayed here for 6 nights. They have a shuttle to D.C. which cost you $12.00 per person. They leave you in front of the Capital around 10:00, and pick you back up at 4:30. If you want to stay in D.C. longer, you are better going by metro, this way you can visit longer. The staff is very friendly. I would stay here again.

We enjoyed our stay here and the location is almost perfect for visiting DC and Baltimore. The upper level sites are level, but lack shade. The lower level has plenty of shade, but some leveling will be necessary. The facilities were clean and the campground was kept up well. The staff is very friendly and always willing to help. There are plenty of activities for the kids. The store is well stocked and we didn't have any issues with WiFi. I took off a couple points because they were experiencing some issues with their hot water supply (but I'm sure they will correct it, they were already attacking it when we left) and our site could've used some fresh gravel. When it rained our site got a little messy. Definitely nothing to keep us from coming back. We camped at Washington DC / Capitol KOA in a Travel Trailer.

Campground is in a great location for visiting the Baltimore/Washington area. It is a great environment shielded from the traffic and congestion. The ownership and staff seem to genuinely care about doing a good job and maintaining the facilities. The sites in the woods are very nice but could use a bit more stone to improve the level for RVs. We did fit our 34' rig into a site in the woods with little difficulty. We camped at Washington DC / Capitol KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

This is a great base to explore Washington DC. The campground shuttle bus provides daily transportation to the Mall. The Metro subway station 5-miles away has ample parking. The drive is not too far to city center Baltimore. Our 40-foot pull-through site was level, although with little shade. There was more shade at smaller sites.

As stated in previous reviews, the only negative is the price but it is conveniently located between DC, Baltimore and Annapolis. Roads are blacktop or gravel, plenty wide for big rigs. Sites are gravel and also big rig compatible. Electric, sewer, water, roof-top satellite worked well - sewer is being upgraded, to make adapters seat better. Sprint cell and mifi service worked well. Employees are great, helpful and work hard at keeping the park immaculate. Lot of nice little touches - camp store is well stocked and open until 10p, daily Washington Post available. Double washers and dryers available, $2 for washer and $1.50 for dryer (no extra time needed!). We camped at Washington DC / Capitol KOA in a Fifth Wheel.
