Bare bones minimum state park, but it did have sewer hookups, which made it better than average for a state park. The staff in the office were typical government workers. They did their job but were not especially friendly or helpful. But for the Washington DC area, the price was very reasonable. This was our second time at this park. The last time we were chased out by the possibility of Hurricane Sandy hitting the DC area. Closest rail station is the end of the line at Vienna Station, about 17 miles away. Parking there is $5/day and if over 65, be sure to get a senior pass to get 1/2 price transit fares. - travelinggramma63
All the trees had me worried about getting into and out of this park in our 42' motorhome, but it was no problem because the trees were all trimmed up high enough not to bother our rig. Our site was roomy, shaded, and had woods nearly all around so more privacy than most campgrounds. The Shooting Center has been mentioned before, but bears repeating. We were away visiting relatives most of the time, but if we had been sitting outside we would've felt like we were in a war zone. Planes from Dulles flew overhead intermittently during the times we were actually in the campground. Every campground has its pluses and minuses--noise is the minus here but the up side is so good we'll stay here again for sure! - Pamela R.
Very nice park. Large open areas for day use, and campsites are good. Some campsites are a bit odd with placement of utilities, but can be reached. We had an issue with the electric on our site as our power cord got a little singed at the female end of the cord. There is a shooting range very near the camping area that is open every day except Mondays and Tuesdays. It stays very busy and the gunfire continues until closing at 8 PM, but don't let this stop you from visiting this well maintained park. It is also very convenient to either the park and ride bus or the Metro Train. - air28
