We stayed 4 nights to see the area as there isn't much to choose from in the area.

The park has easy access to & from Interstate 95.

The campground is on NPS land. It was built on hill so there might be a hand full of sites that are close to being level. The vast majority of the sites have a 2 directional slope making it difficult to get level including the new 80' back in sites for big rigs. Only F16 & F17 are close to being level.

The interior roads are paved but very narrow with tree encroachment from above and sides. A lot of the trees could use some trimming but being on NPS land that probably won't happen. The sites are a mixture of pavement and gravel. There isn't much privacy between the sites because they are very close to each other.

The tree canopy made satellite reception difficult to impossible. A few sites could get reception by setting up the dish outside of their sites with long runs of cable across the roads. A few sites in the center of the CG around the pool in the "C" row had the best chance to get satellite reception but they seem to be water & 30 AMP electric only. Was told that site F17 had gotten satellite reception in the past. That is no longer a possibility. It seems that none of the new 80' back in sites (F12 to F18) had any chance of getting satellite reception.

The broadcast channels did not include any of the major networks with sufficient reception for a satisfactory picture.

WiFi reception was surprisingly good except in the rain.

The designated fenced pet area was adequate. There was sufficient area to walk dogs along the park roads. There was a bag dispenser next to the fenced dog area to pick up waste and a can to dispose of waste.

A couple of dumpsters available around the campground.

For being in a hazardous/severe weather area, there was no underground storm shelter. None of the structures in the park were identified as a severe weather shelter.

Would not stay here again. We camped at Prince William Forest RV Campground in a Motorhome.

Stayed here for one week while attending some training nearby. Park is over-priced for what you get. Campground is right next to Rt 234 (4 lane) so cars and trucks are driving by and making noise all night long. Spots are so narrow and right on top of each other, that I can sit in my trailer and talk to my neighbor in his through the window. WIFI is so slow as to be unusable. Campground was largely empty and although I spent $280 for the week, when I asked ahead of time to checkout an hour and half late (due to a meeting) they charged an additional fee. Also charged extra if you wanted a fire...they remove the rings so you can't build one unless you pay to have them bring you a ring. Bathroom wasn't terribly dirty, but sinks weren't clean all week long. There are better places for less money and I wouldn't stay here again given the other choices. We camped at Prince William Forest RV Campground in a Tent Trailer.

The spaces are pretty close together and they don't give you lots of length space either. The person working the office was friendly and helpful. We don't use the shower house, so I can't say if it was clean or not. It is about 18 miles to a DC metro line, so it was convenient for getting to DC to sightsee. It was ok for a one night stay, but I think the next time we may stay elsewhere. The sites were level, although tight. We chose the secluded spot without sewer, thinking we would have more privacy, and we did, but that was only because everyone else chose full hookups, thereby not filling up our row. Convenient and clean. We camped at Prince William Forest RV Campground in a Travel Trailer.

We visited over Easter Weekend, so many of the amenities, e.g., pool, boating were not open. That said the park was spotless, the staff helpful and very friendly and the sites easily accessible. As previously mentioned, the park is close to DC and makes it an affordable base for visiting DC. We enjoyed the walking through the trails of Prince William Forest. Only challenge was leveling our 38 foot coach. Success was achieved after moving from F18 to F16. That said, we would highly recommend it and will return.

We stayed 4 nights. Sites are paved and fairly level. Pull through sites are short and had to unhook the car and tow dolly. Have to park on an angle to get your car next to the RV. No cable and the internet is very slow but good for checking e-mails. Pool was closed (after labor day) even though it was in the high 90's. Thought it was expensive for what you get but the location to DC was good. Doubt we would stay there again. We camped at Prince William Forest RV Campground in a Motorhome.

Very good rate for the greater DC area, and a peaceful, wooded spot with plenty of stores and dining close by, as well as the Marine Corps museum and the Prince William Forest Park facilities. We enjoyed the pool on a hot night and had it all to ourselves. Would definitely stay here again. We camped at Prince William Forest RV Campground in a Motorhome.

This park is very convenient to the Washington area. Right off I-95. The park is very nice for small RVs. They have just lengthened 5 or 6 sites to accommodate big rigs, but they are not level. Jacks and air bags could not even come close to leveling our 45 ft MH. Staff was very friendly, and the park is lovely. Would love to stay here again, but sites would need improvement.

This was our second stay in this park. While it has a pool and small play ground, I would not call it family friendly. Both times we have been here it seemed to primarily cater to an older, retired population. TV reception and WiFi are both iffy, best bet for WiFi is the middle of row D in front of the bath house. Because of the trees, TV reception via satellite or antenna is iffy. Rate reflects 30 amp and Good Sam discount. We camped at Prince William Forest RV Campground in a Motorhome.

This campground is right on a busy street, but adjacent to a state park and set up to feel as though we are in the woods. Thick tree areas in front and between site rows. Very clean bathrooms, showers, laundry and pools. Sites well maintained. Cement roads and sites, with grassy areas between are roomy enough between sites, but this older campground was not built to accommodate some of the extra long RVs of today. They advertise 35' sites, and even that would almost put the RV on the roadway, but not in jeopardy. Vehicles go slow and careful in the park. Regular TV is good, but limited. Wi-Fi is sporadic...good when it works. Sites are pull-through, some with E/W and some with full hookup. Good dump station on the way out. We like this park and will definitely use it again when in the area. It doesn't have the amenities some have, but probably the best RV campground bargain this near Washington.

Best campground in the D.C. area for the price. We stayed in Travel Trailer Village which is a vendor-managed campground in the Prince William Forest Property. Nice paved level sites (albeit slightly small but manageable). Nice older swimming pool and courteous, helpful staff. Easy access to I-95 and about 20 miles from the Metrorail. We would definitely stay here again. We camped at Prince William Forest RV Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

We stayed here for several weeks after selling our home. The campground is old, and not built to accommodate bigger rigs. We had to squeeze into our site with a 40' motorhome, and we were told that there are only about 3 to 4 sites that could accommodate a rig that size. The sites are also very unlevel. On the positive side, the staff is very friendly and efficient, and the wi-fi works pretty well. There is not much of a campground offering in the area, and the price reflects that. With that being said, we would still stay here again if in the area. We camped at Prince William Forest RV Campground in a Motorhome.

The park is nice and the location is fairly central for what we were doing. The sites are too narrow and too short in our opinion. They also were not level. And we only have a 28 foot fifth wheel! There is no cable so between the lack of cable and the small sites we give it a 7. The W-Fi worked quite well on the positive side. We would stay if in the area again, but we doubt we will be back. The traffic is horrible in the DC and Virginia area to travel in an RV! We camped at Prince William Forest RV Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

This campground apparently has recently changed names. It was Travel Trailer Village. Certainly not a bad place for an overnight stay. About 3 or 4 miles from I-95. Most sites are pull throughs and about 40% have water, electric and sewer. There is also free Wi-Fi (which works very well). This campground is 32 miles from the White House, if you’re in the area to tour DC, and just a few miles from Quantico. They use a code for the bathing house. Not sure why. We were only there for one night, but the place was busy, especially for a Monday night. We camped at Prince William Forest RV Campground in a Travel Trailer.

We stayed here a week and this campground was just as stated in an earlier review. By today's standards, sites are on the small side and not particularly level. However, the pool and quiet locale makes up for all site problems. This is a great place from which to visit our nation's capital. The VRE, the commuter train, is close by at the town of Quantico, and it can take you into town close enough to transfer to the Metro. Not having to drive in DC is a plus. The History of the Marine Corps Museum nearby is well worth the visit. We recommend this for DC visitors. We camped at Prince William Forest RV Campground in a Travel Trailer.

This is a neat little park but is hampered by small sites in most of the campground. Four of the five loops are pull-throughs. The fifth loop has some back-in sites that will accommodate an RV longer than 35 feet. Sites are paved, close to each other, and most are not level. Nice wooded setting and most sites are shaded all or most of the day. Grounds and facilities are clean. It was quiet at all hours. Office staff very friendly and helpful. Pool and restroom facilities were not the most modern but were very clean. We would stay here again but in a site that was a bit more level. Rate reflects 3rd person in our party. We camped at Prince William Forest RV Campground in a Travel Trailer.
