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 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

I don't think there is a great park in the metro DC area and this one is the same. It is older but with mostly good power, water, sewer, but not all sites. Also roads are falling apart, highly wooded so it is tough to get a spot where your satellite will work. Lots of monthlys, or even yearlys. Spots on the upper portion are for all realistic purposes not useful by RVs over 28'. Most are pretty close together, some very close together. Staff is nice but not special. It is convenient to drive into DC, Annapolis, and other tourist areas. Would stay again if in the area but would love to find something better (someone would have to build new) - Johnny xxxxx

We stayed here 2 years ago when owners were new and had no problem getting in. This is the only non-military park anywhere in the area close to Annapolis. Barely got in this time so call well ahead. Disappointed to find it 99% permanent resisidents and although improved, not kept up as well as our last visit. Really wish they had more space for travelers.Very nice staff. - Traveler Anne

Price was for the off season. Swimming pool wasn't open in early May. Lots of other stuff for kids. New owners have filled in some ruts but speeds in most of this large park are governed by the remaining potholes. Utilities were fine. Satellite accessibility is not available at most sites because of extensive foliage. Annapolis is more than ten miles away but this is the only nonmilitary park in the area. - Mtmoi

Stayed a week and really enjoyed our deluxe spacious pull through campsite with concrete patio, table/chairs, grill and shade. Park is in an area with many nearby Interstate and four lane highways with limited access making it complicated to get to/from but GPS worked fine. Located about 20-30 minutes to Annapolis and 40-60 minutes to Washington or Baltimore. Park has many trees for shade and many sites can access satellite (be sure to ask if you need this when making reservation). Did not use but park has pool, playground, dog park, large inflated jumping pillow, fee based shuttle service. Roads and pad are level gravel in pull through area. Space between sites are grass and decent width between rigs and many are spacious for KOA standards (this is more upscale KOA Holiday than your average KOA). Park was very clean. They charge $10 to reserve a specific site. - Tom Willing

Staff was very helpful and took us to our site. We stayed 7 nights and drove to New Carrolton station and caught the metro downtown Washington most days so never used any other facilities. Never used their shuttle. Quite east to do. Wifi was typical some times there but mostly not. No cable. - Aussie Chums

Arrived at the campground, staff was very friendly and accommodating. Our site escort took us into the site next to ours which was odd and to boot the site numbers are on your neighbors tower, not yours which amplified the confusion. We had to back up with car in tow. That night our friends were having power problems at their site, when their 2nd AC would turn on it would drop voltage and shut off. The following AM we began to experience electrical problems with the tower. Low voltage concern also as our friends. The office sent staff over to look at the tower and tell me that I have to understand that the campground is busy there is a lot of RV's pulling power and this sort of stuff can happen, HUH, you offer 50 AMP service, I paid for it and you cannot supply it? They then told me it was our motorhome, not their tower. After the manager came over and began to dig deeper we had a breaker problem, they corrected it (2 hours has passed now) we were all fixed up, not after it burned out my Portable Progressive EMS unit. So I had to run to a local RV dealer and spend $442.00 on a replacement. Us and the two other families that experienced the same problems will not be back. When a campground risks damaging your equipment its just not worth the risk. - Vhljaljr

Very nice park with lots of elbow room. We were in #24 which is on a corner. The nearest RV to us was at least 50 to 75 feet away. The park is clean and they make everyone adhere to the rules (no parking on grass, no junk around, etc) which makes for a pleasing appearance. There was no wifi out where we were, electric was stable, water pressure was fine, and Verizon signal was 4G with 1 and 2 bars (not real strong). There are paved roads and concrete pads with gravel patios. Each patio has a fire pit and picnic table. The commissary and exchange were very nice. Here's our 2 complaints: First are the gates. The gates at the entrance and exit of the park are a pain. If you're on a military base where you are carded before entry, why do you need the gates? Second is Wifi/Hotspot. I called Verizon because my hotspot was worse than dial-up slow and normally it has very good speed. I was told that because of the area (between DC and Baltimore) the tower congestion is such that at certain times of the day it slows down to a crawl. That being the case, the park should have wifi repeaters. All in all we really enjoyed our stay at Camp Meade. - jomark

We've been here a month with a couple more weeks to go. This is a very nice park. Spacious lots, very nice laundry and shower building with a couple break room/library/game areas. Lots of trees but probably ? to ½ of sites are possible for satellite reception. Overall very quiet, except for the base special of reveille at 0630 over the base loudspeakers. Earplugs are useless to counteract, but we got used to it. Better than train whistles or traffic noise. They don't do it on the weekends.
They don't have wifi or cable, though I understand they're working on that right now.
Only downside is there's been a bit of musical spots. Their reservation software doesn't optimize the spots to minimize moves, so we moved twice in a week, but spent almost a month in the current spot. Seemed like it could be minimized since it was mostly people already there moving around. When we extended, the person we dealt with in the office made it so we didn't have to move again, but the experience/interest level of the staff varies.
This is certainly the best value in the DC area. We will be back in the spring for sure.
Rate based on monthly rate. - Seb

Very nice campground. Sites are big with plenty of space between them. I like the fact the grass gets mowed regularly. Good option for the DC area. We would do so again. - rwarner22

According to the rating I gave this RV park, you can see I wasn't too impressed. Let me first say that Andrews AFB is the President's Flagship Base as Air Force 1 is housed here and all the officers and personnel that keep everything in Presidential order. This FamCamp is an embarrassment to the base - in my opinion. It is old and apparently suppose to be upgraded but it is obvious that no work has been done to make improvements even though areas are roped off and those areas are totally unkempt with tall grass and neglected. The area that is being used is mowed where the RV's park, but the center section is growing wild. It is overgrown as close as 4' from the back of the RV and full of no-see-ums and jiggers. There is only 30 amp available. We have a 50 amp unit and have used 30 amp many times without problems. We simply use one a/c. In this park, 30 amp may as well have been plugging our RV into a household plug. If I ran an a/c the only other items that could be on were the LED lights. To take a shower we had to turn off the air (it was 94 while we were here), turn on the water heater and let the water get hot, take the shower then turn off the water heater and turn on the air. One thing at a time. Couldn't use the microwave or convection oven at all. And this after we had them put a new 30 amp breaker on the pole. When we first got here, the breaker kept tripping no matter what we did. The person working in the office claims I told her I had a 36' unit (I did not - that would not be to my benefit to say such a thing. We are 39') and that was the only reason she made the reservation for us. What difference 3 feet makes to the power pole is beyond me. She was very rude and argumentative. It is mostly her tone and attitude. We did not hit it off well at all. We will not be back. Although Andrews is a great place for visiting DC, I would not recommend this RV park. - jomark

we were only staying for 2 weeks but Denise squared us away and we were able to stay for 15 days! The staff was great Denise was very helpful!!! We had no issues plus plenty of space to walk our dogs! Grandsons came to visit our last week and had a blast!!! They are renovating some sites! We will definitely be back!!! - Griffin2

Half of the park was closed for reconstruction, the other half was neglected. Site had concrete pad which was the most positive aspect of the park. One staff member was rude and seemed to think answering questions was not in job duties. Roads gravel, muddy and potholed, restrooms were clean but really outdated, staff seemed to think it was okay to leave mops and brooms anywhere they stopped using them.
Grass around office area trimmed and mowed, rest of areas and campsites grass was 12-18 inches tall. Grass around dog area fencing mowed, inside not mowed. Piles of limbs and leaves everywhere.
Half of park being rebuilt/upgraded to 50 amp, but placement of utilities made no sense. While a very good location for visiting Washington DC, a disappointing park. One would think that the support base for the Presidential fleet of aircraft would be a showplace in all its facilities.
Base Exchange being remodeled but open for business, commissary large. Golf course one of the best I've ever seen on a military base. - Retired Medic

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.... - Slo Mo

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

We spent 5 nights here, going to Washington DC every day for tourist reasons. This is an incredible bargain as it is about 10 miles away from DC, and only about 2 miles to the Greenbelt Metro station. The first night we were there we were by ourselves at the end of the campground, the grass was about a foot high, and my wife said it felt creepy. The next day they mowed the grass and over the time we were there, more people came in to camp. There are no hookups, but we were fine in our self contained motor home. It rained a lot while we were there, when we left the dump station was flooded so we couldn't dump. We didn't look at the restrooms. - Russell G

Thick trees in serious need of trimming. Interior roads very tight, sites paved but many unlevel, and dry camping only. 1 shower stall for men in all of D loop, and that needed cleaning. Never saw the camphost, maintenance crew drove around but never saw them get out and do anything. Rain created muddy mess, garbage strewn about and not addressed. - rvrrat520

This is of course a NP campground. It is a little bit of heaven in a very large city. Like most NP campgrounds it is in need of a lot of repairs and updates, but if it were not a NP it probably won't even be here. I'm sure the property values in the area would make such a large section of land out of the range of most RV parks. In fact the only other RV park in the area charges $70 a night and that would have been way over our heads to stay at. There are trees everywhere and except for the faint noise of the busy highways on all sides you would think you were way out in the country. Those busy highways are what you have to take to get here but with patience and careful driving it wasn't as hard as I thought it would be. The roads inside the CG are a little rough and in need of repair. The sites could be a little larger and a little more level but we found one that would fit our 40' MH. There were picnic tables at every site but the fire rings were old and falling apart if they were even there at all. You are only 1 1/2 miles from the train station that takes you to downtown DC but we drove our car and after finding a hens teeth parking space we spent a wonderful day walking the DC Mall area. There were very few people the so it was easy to use the one shower in our loop but it would be difficult when it is busy. Most sites are back in but there are a few pull-through. The reservation system is fairly accurate in describing the size and levelness so if it says slightly unlevel you should believe them. Water was available close by and there is a dump station. The small visitors center was staffed by very helpful Park Service and volunteer people who directed us on ways to get around the city. Of course being in the city the cell and internet signal were very good. I would highly recommend this great CG for anyone with a desire to visit the Capital of the US. - rhianna

Elevated views of the Chesapeake Bay and well-manicured sites highlight this campground just south of Rock Hall, MD. Ample, large sites for tents overlook the shore looking west, affording awesome sunsets; however, the 20- to 30-foot-high position above the Bay means no swimming or fishing from the shore. Most of the campground's sites are reserved for long-term campers. Most of the sites are narrow and well-shaded; the inner rows surround a grassy area with a playground, pond and volleyball court. No sewer or pump-out service. An ample number of dump stations exist; all are well-maintained. No planned activities for children or families. Place was pretty quiet by 11 each night. We would stay again. - Lancaster Camper

One of the most well maintained and beautiful parks we have stayed in. The showers could use some updating and they are a little on the small side but very doable. The owners & staff were very friendly and our visit could not have been any better. We would come here again anytime. - JOHN DEAS

This is a beautiful "resort" style park. The grounds are well landscaped and I don't blame them for not allowing parking or mats on the grass. The price is not high. This campground was full, and was turning away reservations, they must be doing something right. The wifi was strong in my site, the local antenna was incredible, you can pick-up Washington and Baltimore stations so no real need for cable. I have been here three times and have noticed that this campground has improved every time, and I am looking forward to my next visit. - Maryland Traveler

This is not an RV park. Instead, it is a mobile home park that happens to have three long-term RV sites nearby. Sites rent only on a monthly basis at $795/mo, including all utilities except cable and phone. You get a regular street address and USPS mailbox at the street. The sites are very bare bones, with gravel pads that are pretty level, picnic tables at two of the sites but no patios, full-hookups, and grass is mowed religiously by on-site caretaker who lives just two doors down and is a bit nosy. The sites sit right on Bull Neck Creek. This is a blessing and a curse. Great views of the water, fishing, and lots of waterfowl, but the area is prone to flooding, and the sites get boggy fast. We often find ourselves stepping out our door and into a puddle after a big rain. In the event of a tropical storm, hurricane, or unusually high tides you will have to evacuate. The driveway into the sites is not paved so gets rutty and muddy in snow and rain. If you aren't careful, your vehicle and rig can get stuck very easily. Septic tanks sometime back up, but maintained man will pump them for you. Electric, water, and cable supplies reliable. Very quiet park and neighborhood. We've been here nearly a year and have never seen a police car or ambulance in the area. We've also had no neighbors in the other two sites during that time. The mobile home park sits right between two county parks with fishing and boat ramps, so recreation is readily available. Property manager (who is located off site) is very friendly and helpful and will work to accommodate your needs. Pets are allowed ONLY on the RV sites, not in the mobile home park or in the stick-built homes nearby. Large, open field nearby where you can walk your pets. You are responsible for taking your garbage to the curb once a week and supplying your own garbage can. Raccoons and stray cats in the area, so you don't want to sit your trash out unprotected. Sites are about a block away from railroad tracks, and trains do come through in the wee hours. High tension power immediately adjacent to the sites. This said, these are the ONLY RV sites near Baltimore that allow pets, have full hookups, cable access, AND allow long-term residents. Lots of mobile home parks in the area do allow RVers, but most won't allow pets. If you plan to winter over in this park, know that you'll get to shovel the 100 feet or so to the street in the event of a blizzard (we had three this last winter). The county does plow the streets, and there is some car parking about a block up, so you can park your car or truck there in the event of snow. Carpenter ants are a problem here, and they will eat the wood in your RV, so be careful. We haven't yet found a good remedy for them except keeping the tree branches over our rig trimmed back. Mosquitoes are also fierce because of the nearby creek. I'd give the park a higher rating if the sites and driveway were paved, if the drainage were better, and if the monthly rate was a bit lower, but I suppose this is the cost of living right on a tributary of the Chesapeake and only 20 minutes from downtown Baltimore. - Mary Jo
