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 our second time staying here within 5 years. We come to the park for the convenience to go to Washington, D.C. There is a 16 mile drive to the subway, one way. Truly not an inconvenience at all. In fact, it is an easy and fast drive, straight and right to the subway in a secured parking lot. It just so happened that we were a day ahead of our schedule. We called them and asked if they could take us a day early. They welcomed us without any problems. We extended our stay for six days which was during the Memorial Holiday Week. A very busy time of the year. The place only changed their name that we noticed. The restrooms and laundry facility was extremely clean and in working order all the time. The only real difference from our stay in compared to our last stay, was the site. We were more on a downhill slope to which we had to raise our rig up extremely high with more blocks under the trailer jack. So the back was approximately 5 inches off the ground and the front was (no kidding) at least 3 feet from the ground. We weren't the only ones with this challenge. We saw motorhomes with their wheels off the ground. We were secured and so were they. A few of us did talk about it and we said next time we will not stay in those spots. Many of the other spots were a lot more level. Lesson learned. There are many restaurants (both private and national chain restaurants) close by and grocery shopping was easy to do. The only reason I rated this place an 8 is because of our spot. Last time it would have scored 10! 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.

Park is on federal land and run by a private contractor. Seems to be well and clean. Easy access for big rigs. But sites are very unlevel, almost every unit we saw had multiple blocks on one side. The other reason for losing points was that the fire ring had to be rented each night, for an additional charge. We camped at Prince William Forest RV Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

We needed a park convenient to the District and Northern Virginia and this one met our needs. We checked out other parks in the area (Pohick Bay is nice, but a little remote and camping with a capitol "C". Aquia Pines Camp Resort appeared to be primarily monthly residents in the FHU area, the other sites would be very difficult for us to get into). Travel Trailer Village is a basic, no frills, utilitarian park. We had FHU with 30 amp which we found to be adequate (we were here in September and were not using AC). Sites are close together and just large enough for RV and one vehicle. The staff was friendly, and the park well maintained; restrooms and laundry were very clean. Access to I-95 and shopping is good. We will stay here again. We camped at Prince William Forest RV Campground in a Motorhome.

The staff is very helpful and courteous. The park sites are for small units. Several long units, including ours, were allowed into the park and we barely fit. We had to park crooked so we did not block road access. There are only two parking spaces for all the vehicles on your row and visitors are using them. There is no where to park your tow vehicle. The park is good if you are under 35 ft, which is what I believe they say they accommodate. When you call, they say they have spaces to accommodate you, but boy is it tight. The restrooms and laundry are excellent. If you have a large fifth wheel and your truck, I hope they direct you accordingly. We camped at Prince William Forest RV Campground in a Motorhome.
