Very clean, easily accessible with excellent service and convenient to I-95. - Charles and Joyce Dixon

For what you get, it sure is very high. I don't usually complain about price, but there is nothing to offer. Electric was so, so when the AC's were on. Sewer connection was not very convenient. It was at the end of site. - xflyhighx

This campground was a total disappointment and is overpriced. It is not being maintained well. Roads have deteriorated. Sites are unbelievably short. There are issues with adequate and intermittent power. In desperate need of rehabilitation and redesign to accommodate modern rigs. Short RV's may find it adequate. We will not be back to this facility. - americanrascal

This is a beautiful 18,000 acre park operated by the National Park Service. The web site indicates RV's are restricted to 32 ft, but this is not true. Larger units can be accommodated. All sites are heavily wooded and the campground is 7 miles from the entrance to the park. The staff and campground host are very helpful and friendly. This is a campground for people who want to be close to nature. If you desire swimming pools, etc., this park is not for you. It is within a 1/2 mile of I-95 located just 30 miles south of Washington D.C. - geodrake

This is a National Park facility, 18,000 acre forest with 100 camp sites carved out of the forest. Reservations are available, but not necessary. All sites have paved parking. Many miles of hiking trails. A concession operated RV park with full hook-ups is available, but does not provide access to the park. - geodrake

We stopped here for one night on our way to VT. It was a lot like a state park in terms of ruggedness. Our site did not have sewage and I am not sure if all the sites are like that. The spaces on our side were very close together, we couldn't open our canopy because it was so close to the trees. It would have been nice had they spaced the RV sites out more. I am not sure if all of them were that close. The pool and brewery were a nice touch. The bathrooms were clean. We had an issue with our RV's plumbing and the manager was very helpful and even had a part for us. The whole staff was very friendly. We would stop here again for a night. - woowoo

Not big rig friendly. Very small sites, on hills and hard to get into. Paid for a full hook up site and owner decided to work on the water by our site without telling us, ended up with our water being on and off for 5 days. Went to talk with him and see about possibly moving sites since all other sites had water and instead he told us to get out. He refuses to fix his issues at campground and as soon as questioned its either his way or get out. - Cc1595

Interior roads are tight, but park personnel guided my 43 ft motorhome into my space with no problem. Cable and sat reception were both good. Wifi was sporadic. Site was level, but cramped. Pool was clean and large enough to enjoy without feeling crowded. - westwill3

This is a little known gem in the Maryland State Park system. Very quiet and shady sites. Extremely clean. Easy access to dump station on way out of campground. All sites had a fire ring, picnic table, and large "patio" area adjacent to the site. Most sites are wide without trees obstructing back-in access, though there is PLENTY of shade. Multiple overflow parking areas available if needed, but we were able to fit camper, meg-cab dually and a 2nd vehicle within our site. Reservation website lists 30' max, but we found 8 sites we could easily fit our 43' triple axle triple slide 13'6" tall 5th wheel on. We were also able to maneuver on interior roads without issue. Short walk to the marina, historical museum, fantastic playground and new nature center. Wonderful shaded walking/hiking paths. Easy access to DC for those wanting to see the sights in the Capital. - User3193

This is a really nice park with plenty to do and see. Maybe a little too "woodsy". Sites are a little small but there is plenty of space between them. For a state park, I would have expected better trails. With the river so close, fishing and boating is very popular here. There is even a museum in the park. - tonymaldonado

Nice, cost effective place to use as a base for visiting DC. A metro stop is fairly close that will take you into the heart of DC. Our site was a pull through, dirt, moderately unlevel. Lots of trees so that you don't feel close to your neighbor. Electric only. Water is a bit of a problem and only available at the check in office where maneuvering is tight for rigs over 32. Careful with GPS. My Garmin would have had me go 2 miles past the entrance. Google Maps was dead on. Fortunately it is well marked...so follow the signs. The entrance/store/check in is not well designed. Very tight for rigs over 32, especially if towing. Water is available only at the check in, making a traffic mess. - tom&kathryn

This is a great park just outside of the capital beltway. Lots to do in this park: Mini Golf, Frisbee Golf, rent paddleboards or kayaks, hike and swim in a pool.
The sites are under trees and even thought it was 85 degrees out, it did not feel that hot. They also have great cabins that we stayed in.
The bathrooms were clean and the laundry room (2 washers & 2 dryers) was clean too.
Everyone was friendly, and the roads are well maintained. No complaints at all. - The Bees

Pohick Bay Regional Park is located in a wooded area. Roads are paved.
Sites are dirt, but they were putting gravel down. Our site also had timbers placed around it to help contain gravel. It was the only one with the timbers.
There are only 10 sites with full hookups. Other sites have water and electric or shared water at some tent sites.
There are two bath houses with laundry areas, but only one was open as we were here out of season.
The office has wifi. We were able to get a weak signal from it with our Jefatech repeater using an outside antenna. Later in the week, we moved to a second site and could not pickup the wifi, so the coverage is spotty away from the office.
There was a loop with some small rustic cabins. Also, there were a couple new cabins build recently in another area overlooking the river. These appeared to have central AC or heat. - B D HOWie

Stayed here for about a month. Good spacing between sites, but relatively no shade on any of the sites. Hookups were a little different, water/electric/cable towards the very front of the site, sewer at the back. A bit of a challenge if your electric is in the back etc. Sites are not as level as you would hope for in a newer RV park. The challenge was not just side to side, but front to back too. Some semi-permanent residents that "shuffle" from site to site, but still a nice place. - RobT

Spent 4 nights here. This is a beautiful new camp in a beautiful location on the river. The facilities are new with concrete pads for vehicle and patio. My only negative comments are: I think $40.00 is a little much for a military site. When they installed the concrete pads you would think they could have been level, but few to none are level and some are off a lot. The bath/laundry house is very nice, clean and well equipped, but it sits on a hill on one edge of the campground. It could have been more centrally located. But even with the cost I would stay here again. - trav

The pros: This RV park is located in a beautiful area right on the Potomac River. The cons: The kids who work in the office are clueless about all things RV with no understanding of hookups, necessity of level sites or even the ability to give simple directions or information about the base. Very few sites are level in any direction (i.e. side-to-side or end-to-end) to the extent that we had to try about a half-dozen sites before we found one in which our motor home auto-leveling system could level the coach. Aside from restrooms and laundry facilities, there are no other amenities in the park itself. Other military RV parks in the Washington DC area are either much cheaper. There are many other superior and cheaper places to stay that do not have the design flaws that cannot be corrected at Ft Belvoir. The management and Fort Belvoir leadership have no idea of what is important to RV'ers. If they did this campground would have been better designed, better built, and more military camper friendly with respect to policies, prices, reservations and cancellations. Do yourself a favor, drive on by and stay north of the city. This is the most expensive military campground that we have encountered in seven years of full-timing and has the poorest site design. - flrvers466

We just love this park! This is our second stay and we reserved the first two weeks of April 2017 hoping to see the Blue Bells. The park is convenient to the highway and to public transit into Washington DC.
Park roads are good to excellent with just a few potholes.
Full hookup sites are all on one road. NOTE: The hookups for some sites are on the wrong side or at the rear of the site. Suggest you call ahead and discuss if this is important to you.
The park is perfect for those who enjoy nature. Woods, flowers, trails, trees, wildlife. What's not to love!? Sites are spacious and the park is enjoyed by those in RVs of all sizes as well as tents.
We saw deer several times in the park and on the trails. We were also ther as Paw Paws ripened and were able to enjoy them as a snack during our hike.
Please beware of Rocky Raccoon. This masked bandit removed our suet feeder and hanger from a tree and hauled it off to his own home. Rocky returned two days later hoping for an encore but, on encountering humans, fled up a tree. - Moe and Flo are on the go

This is a large community park just off I-66 about ½ hour west of Washington, DC. The park has huge open areas, picnic pavilions and a water park. The campground is wooded with nice sized site pads. The driveways are asphalt in good condition and the site pads are gravel. We had a large "pull along" site with 50 amp electric plus water. A dump station is available. The bathrooms are nice and super clean. We paid $44.76 per night. - Coopsecondact

It is hard to believe that this park is so close to Fairfax and DC - lots of open space and very quiet, considering I-66 is so close. We really like the way you pull into your site along the camp road and the hook ups are close to the road. Our site was very spacious, level, and we felt as if there was more room because there was not another campsite in front of us. Dump station was very convenient and spacious. The only negative during our stay was the noise from the shooting range, which is located in the park, mostly during mid-morning time frame; however, it was not that bad. We would definitely consider camping here again. - dadseven

Friendly staff, but not really a place for someone just passing through. All but 8 sites are for seasonal campers. The overnight sites are grouped closely together on a grassy slope. We will not stay here again. - Dave51
Sep 2013 - $30.00
This is a great value, what you pay vs what you get. The owners were super nice, went out of their way to make us feel welcome. I believe all but 8 sites are for seasonal campers. The sites are back to back, grass sites between the bath house and pool. The 30 amp power was good, but did not need to run the a/c. The bath house wasn't great, but was clean. This was an amazingly friendly group of people, made us feel very welcome. I would stay here again, great waterfront location, great kayaking nearby! - SteveandAnn

When this park is empty, it looks like little more than an open field, not very inviting. But, it does fill up on the weekends, and is a VERY friendly and kid-safe place. There is a down-home party atmosphere, so if you are looking for peace and quiet, this campground may not be the best fit. The pool is clean, the restrooms and showers are immaculate, and there is tons for the kids to do. We shared a power pedestal with other campers, but the 30amps was enough to power both of our AC units without a single problem. They do not have 50amp available. Wonderful church service on Sunday mornings at the pavilion. We will definitely camp here again as often as possible! - User3193

This is our second time staying at Hillwood, the first was a 3 year stay, and then this 2 night stay. The camping park is great. It's beautiful, green, and quiet from the minute you drive inside. Trees, a beautiful pond, and flowers make it feel so secluded despite being in the city. The camping park is so reasonably priced for the area. They provide a laundry room, bath house, and mail services. - skisqueen

This camping park is a blessing. It has the best staff, a beautiful location, and amazing prices!!! It caters to long-term tenants, which I love, no constant in and out. It doesn't have certain perks, pool or playground, but the surrounding area makes up for it! There is a water fountain, a water park, tons of playgrounds, bounce houses, tons for families to do! The sites are well maintained, considering the high level or rain and snow that falls there. The laundry facility does its job, cheap washers and dryers! The bath/shower house isn't perfect, but long-term residents don't need it to be, our campers provide it. There is no problem with security here, as a resident of 3 years, there was 1 incident. I recommend this park to the fullest, I couldn't have been happier anywhere. - skisqueen

This park needs lots of improvement. First off this is not a tourist park, it is mostly long-term campers who are here on contract jobs from out of town. There is no maintenance or upkeep of the park, all the sites are nothing but grass which turns to mud every time it rains or snows. Sites are not level either. If it snows, trees fall on your camper and destroy it, two campers completely destroyed during our stay. There are two maintenance workers on-site, but only one of them actually cares and will help you if you need something. The restrooms, showers and laundry are very rustic, old and filthy. While we were there, a camper had his back window broken out and everything was stolen out of the camper, so this place is not safe, nor does it supply any security. There were some reports of campers having their LP tanks stolen too. Be careful what you say to the lady that works in the office, she will tell everyone your business. The owner is very indifferent, unfortunately they are the only long-term camping park in the area and they know it, so complaining about anything in the office is not worth your trouble, basically the attitude is, you’re more than welcome to leave or find someplace better. So bottom line, if you are a tourist, I recommend you stay away and find another campground. If you are here on a long-term job, it is the only game in town, but you have been warned. Too bad too, this could be a nice park if the owner cared for it. - smackj
