Customer service was nice. Official checkout time is 2PM but they let everyone checkout at 3PM. T mobile service was great. Sites in the front and across from storage lots are large and level. Sites within the trees deeper in are tight and not so level. Too bad no online reservations. They do allow you to transfer reservations, pretty friendly policy. Not that much to do around area, rural. Nice Halloween activities with free hotdogs, chips, drinks on Saturday night. - univmd

We planned to stay a week but had to have parts shipped in and were able to extend to make repairs. Staff was very helpful and professional. Too many trees for satellite but cable was good. Water pressure, WiFi and power good. Office is open 9-9! There is a security gate so get a swipe card , worth the $40 deposit - no problem returning it. Main roads are paved, secondary roads gravel; sites are gravel and grass. Sites were a little close, only about 10’ from my awning to the neighbors slide. You have to back in on the blind side on the FR row. Pet friendly. The road in is twisty, with tight turns and hills, no matter which exit off 70. They recommend Exit 73 but there is a round about - it has fewer turns. Exit 76 has more tight turns and hills but doable - take your time. Either exit is fine - try not to enter the first time at night. We would stay here again. A side note - they have awesome RV storage. One row even has electricity. - Born2RV

This is our second visit here, arrived just after Florence. Site was level, very little mud. Had to bail out the water well to hook up, no different than before. We camped in the FR section, which is more open than the other sections. Still not good for getting satellite service, however the cable is very good. The laundry is very clean and the machines are excellent. We were visiting friends in the area, so jusst stayed two night. - Nautilus

We stayed here with our Stockade group. There are only two large open field sites available. We stayed at site 1 which is closest to the bathrooms. There is a water spigot near the restrooms but there are no shower facilities. Each site has a fire ring, picnic tables, and a nice new BBQ and a large wooden cooking type area built next to it. It even has hooks for your lantern. The rangers were nice and came out to check on us a few times and the park is great. The disk golf course and hiking trails were a big hit. We would stay here again. - Cfamily

Reiterating what others have stated: approach from the west and you're OK; approach from the east and beware the 11 foot bridge (and we saw NO warning signs!!); 30 amp only; entry road is indeed steep, but not really a problem unless your vehicle is underpowered; a few sites looked like they would require more care to get into with larger rigs. Other tidbits we learned: sites are pretty widely spaced and thus quite private; very wooded which makes it a nice 10 degrees cooler, but forget about satellite anywhere; the potable water is in one spot and the dump is in another and both are on the inside "electric" loop; you must use their wood, but they have plenty; you have to make a 90 degree turn to exit, which isn't a big deal unless there are cars queued up at the entrance like when we left --- we had to thread the needle; when leaving the park the entrance ramp on to Hwy 40 is very short, so you'll have to wait for a gap and/or floor it. As others have stated, this is a great state park to get away from it all with a classic feel and hiking trails, pavillions, ranger programs and the quiet of the woods at night. We didn't explore the trails or woods as we used this as a base for exploring Baltimore, so we went into the city every day. Our site was 429, the last on the electric loop, which is very long and has the added advantage that you can go the wrong way on the one way road for about 20 yards and pull right into your driveway without having to go all the way around the loop when returning to camp. - darwinmoore

Good for what it was - a reasonable state park very close to Baltimore. We stayed here while visiting my daughter who lives in the city. Easy access into Baltimore. Most sites are spacious and look easy to get into. Rest rooms were dirty and didn't appear to be cleaned during our stay. Our site was very difficult to get into, though the campground hosts were familiar with it and spent a half hour with us helping us jockey our rig back and forth to get in. We made a list of sites we will use next time, which does NOT include 427 - avoid that site if you have anything other than a small trailer or class B camper. - DaveAndJoyce

The registration area is away from the camping area and if arriving from the East is hard to access due to a 11 foot underpass restriction. RV sites use the inner loop which has 30 amp power but no water. Sites are about 30 feet apart. Residential housing is visible behind the campsites but we did not have noise problems. Only one place to take on fresh water or dump waste but we did not have to wait. Overall functional but not scenic. - rudyhehn

First of all the site we were given D69 was very unlevel. We are full time RVers and have never come across a site anywhere near that bad at a campground. Other than that the campground is very nice, clean, and quiet. They do however seem to have a very strict check out time as someone knocked on our door 6 minutes after 11, then came by again shortly after as we were getting ready to pull out. We have never had someone basically chasing us out of a campground like that before. - BrittanyFenn

This is not a regular RV park it is a county park. Located in a forest full of very private places. Verizon WiFi receives good. Good and easy service in the office. Nice and clean place to stay for a longer time. - Obcy

Roads into the park and inside the park are good. Check in was fast and friendly and they offered area information. The park is well maintained. There is a camp store with your basic needs. Lots of trails for hiking and activities for kids. We were in D-51, a gravel pull through with full hook ups. The site is VERY unlevel no matter where you pull in. We used all of our jack pads and our tires were far off the ground. We needed to buy additional sewer hose to reach the sewer connect. To turn the water on - there is a small ring under the faucet that needs to be pulled down - they didn't tell us this but luckily a neighbor knew what to do! The sites are very large and wooded. It was plenty long enough for our 37-foot Class A, tow-dolly and parking the car. Extremely quiet. It seems they are working on the leveling issues, which would give it a 10 star rating. The laundry room and bathrooms are clean. There is no WiFi. Our Verizon signal was good. We stayed May 28 - June 4, 2018 and paid $36 a night with our Passport America discount. - BarrettsHappyTrails

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

This park has easy access and is big rig friendly with level sites, concrete patios, good utilities but is mainly a trailer park with many permanents. As their website describes, $45.00 a night with a three night minimum. Basically the only game in Frederick and is okay if you want three nights. - RJourney

As others have mentioned, this is not an RV park: it's a mobile home park that added spaces for RVs. It's not very tidy, but it was adequate for what we wanted: to be close to Frederick. Most RV sites are full of people doing contract work in the area for 4-6 months. All spaces are pull-throughs with concrete pads, which was nice as we got a lot of rain. No shade at all. The manager was very helpful and accommodating and he seems to keep a close eye on the park. Lots of restaurants and shopping close by. And while it's not an RV resort, if we return to the area we would stay here again. - mauigirl7254

This 'park' is NOT a campground. This is a former Mobile Home park that has been 'transitioned' to an RV camp (not campground). The only amenities are a laundry room. No Restrooms, no showers, no playground, no pool, we even have to mow our own grass!! The rates are very high ($800/month) but it does INCLUDE Electric (I have only used my propane sparingly for cooking). The manager is only here on Tues and Thurs from 10:00am-2:00pm. He is a nice guy, but not educated as to how a 'campground' should operate. Everyone here is permanent to semi-permanent and working in the area (Mostly men, very few families). I plan to be here until Jan 2010, when my husband hopes to return to the US (from working in Abu Dhabi, UAE) and we can finally retire and take off! The one thing that attracts people to this camp is the location. It is in the heart of Frederick, MD close to EVERYTHING! Very convenient location. - onthecoach

Traveling full-time in a 38-foot coach we stayed 23-nights in a site for big rigs (site # 506). Pd $69 night. The good....if you desire to stay close to DC this would be an excellent choice. This is a very well-kept and quiet park with great amenities. There's a cafe on site plus they offer a travel/trip adviser. Take advantage of this as their expertise will help make your excursions into DC much easier. There's even a bus stop at the front of the park. If you have a dog there's ample area to walk your pet plus a fenced dog park. This park has decent wifi and our AT&T phones worked great here. Our satellite did receive reception, however most of the sites have way to many trees to receive satellite reception. This is not a dusty park so the dust on your coach will be minimal compared to many other parks. Big coaches need a gravel pad, so we give this RV Park a 5-star rating for the thick gravel pad. Each site had room at the side of the coach for sitting and relaxing while BBQ'ing. The bad...if your site is next to the freeway you may hear some traffic noise and in the wintertime the noise is a little more noticeable due to the lack of tree leaves blocking the sound. This is a great place to stay and we highly recommend it! - JDC10

A park with this many amenities and price should have a higher rating. The park offers everything you could possibly want from a RV park. The reason for not a higher rating was 1) site not level. I could not level with just my levers had to use 4x4 's 2) levers sunk into the ground 3) Lots of fwy noise. Everything else was very good. Would stay again but would try to get a spot more towards the front to get away from Hwy noise. - newbies2016

Th closest park to DC, very nice and spotless, site was very large. Staff was very good was taken to our site. Bring a water pressure regulator water pressure over 60 PSI. Park is very close 4 miles to the T and they have a shuttle. - tazman1953
