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. We camped at Prince William Forest RV Campground in a Travel Trailer.

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. We camped at Prince William Forest RV Campground in a Motorhome.

We really liked this place - in spite of the fact that it didn't have cable, and that it was a good 20 min.+ from the nearest Metro! Our site was level, shaded, peaceful, and the staff, when we did see her, was super nice. I just wish we could have stayed longer - but they were already booked! Nice place. I did notice other site had some rough spots that could make for some leveling problems, so it might depend on where you got assigned, I guess. Oh, and the WiFi pole was right next to us, so reception was great!! We camped at Prince William Forest RV Campground in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

This was our "home-base" to go into Washington DC using the metro - so, of course, lots to see and do! Give yourself at least a week! One tip we learned if you want to go inside the Washington Monument, you need to be there by 7am to get a (free) timed ticket. They run out by about 10am! No matter the season! They start giving them out around 8:30am.

Price is good for the area. Greatly enjoyed our 6 night stay. Sites: Yes, sites are tight, and really long RV's may find some sites too short (our 32' MH (2 slides)was fine, but toad had to be separated.) All sites seemed level. Table, wrapped water (for winter use) and 50 amp electric + sewer fine. Paved interior roads, hard gravel sites. Employees are very friendly and helpful. Pool was exceptionally clean and large enough for all. WiFi was weak (as usual for campgrounds). Our Site (D7) good for Sat TV, but many others iffy. Bathhouses immaculate and shower stalls large! Campfires only allowed in raised fire rings. They had them for rent $6/night. Could only us their firewood (local and state regulations). Good Sam park. We camped at Prince William Forest RV Campground in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Target and grocery stores less than 1.5 miles away. Good local pub within 1 mile. Great steamed crabs at Crosby's Crab House, about 7 miles west. Easiest way to do DC is to drive to Metro (about 18 miles away) and go from there. Quick and easy. Absolutely no way to park in DC!

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 camped at Prince William Forest RV Campground in a Motorhome.

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.

We were very pleased with this campground. Staff at the office was terrific in giving perfect directions to our tourist destinations. We appreciated her excellent help! The sites are on 5 different levels buffered with 35 to 40 yards of tree line between levels. The individual sites are double wide and have a grass buffer. The roads and sites were paved. The laundry, restrooms, and showers were clean. We had a wonderful stay and would definitely suggest this campground. We camped at Prince William Forest RV Campground in a Travel Trailer.

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.

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.
