This is the 2nd time we've stayed here because it's close to family. Both times we've said we will not return but next time we will definitely stay in a different park even though we'll have to drive longer so see family. The pull through sites are sideways, but the hookups are poorly lined up and not even, which makes pulling in difficult. Our site was not level. We had to use 2 pieces of wood to level and not have our tires off the ground. Sites are a little bit of gravel but mostly dirt. Water pressure was terrible. We couldn't pull through to leave because of the trees and side drop offs. We arrived just after noon and were charged a $5 early registration fee - registration starts at 1:00. Never had this happen before! No cable, no WiFi, no satellite, just noise from the gun range and airport. This was not a pleasant experience. - dickens

Be careful of GPS directions in this location. Thankful I called the office and asked about directions. She told us not to take Compton Rd. We rode it in the car later and it is horrible. We turned on Bull Run Post Office Rd off of Hwy 29 and it isn't any fun in a large RV but doable. Main problem is it's very narrow. Once you get into the park, the roads are fine. We loved the campground. Sites are private and shaded. - AnnS

This park is well maintained. Beautiful in spring. Our site had no water or sewer hook ups, which we were a little apprehensive about upon booking. They have a potable water and dump station at the entrance of the campground, so it worked out perfectly for our 2 night stay. Sites are pull off, meaning that your door will face the woods. We really enjoyed this set up. The sites were adequately spaced, but having the pull off set up made it feel extremely spacious and private. Again, we love this configuration. We camped on Memorial Day weekend, so the park was completely full but it was still quiet and pleasant. The staff were friendly and helpful during check in/out process. We found the roads easy to maneuver our 36'. No issues there for us. We did hit the water park for a few hours and our 4 year old had a blast! It was smaller than I originally expected, but it was an amazing value with the camping discount (only $4 entrance fee for the water park). Kids also enjoyed the playground. We didn't use the bathrooms or showers, so can't speak to that. Overall, great weekend retreat if you prefer a campground close to nature. We would probably stay longer next time if we were able to get a full hook up site. We would gladly camp here again. - Brownsonthemove

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

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

A great campground when visiting the D.C. area. Located on a working farm, this is a very large campground, with lots of limited amenity sites located in the woods. Our site, however, was out in the open near the pool. We had a pull through with 50 amp full service. The campground is a bit hilly, but our site was level and adequate. However, the sites face each other so your awning and sitting area faces your neighbors. Unfortunately, there was only one picnic table, but we didn't need to use it, so our neighbors had it to themselves. We would stay here again when visiting the D.C. area. - Gus the Fireant

Electric 50/30/20 is good. Sewer good. Water 40@ psi. Wi-Fi not available. AT&T Cell ok. Verizon 4G LTE Air Card good. Cable none available. Site: S4. Site Size long enough to park truck with trailer. Site are close but enough room to put out awning. Roads into the park are rough and narrow. Have a problem with oncoming traffic especially if pulling the trailer or in a MH. Didn't use Restrooms. Didn't use Laundry. Didn't see any Long term tenants. DirecTV Satellite easy in the open pull through but in the back wooded area it would not be possible. No Discounts. Payment by credit card. This is the best park in the area. Not quite as bad as others have reviewed if you stay in the pull through area or on top of the hill. Stayed for a week to visit family and would stay here again if the pull through sites were open. - TXBobcat

This CG has only location going for it...proximity to Washington, DC. It's entrance road is rutted. It has no internet or cable. The "full hook-up" sites are narrow and NOT level. I was quoted $38.00, but "with tax" raised the price to $42.94...13% tax??? I had to return to pay my charges because the person who could run the register "was indisposed." The picnic tables are warped and unusable...none match. Even with its proximity to DC and the Manasass Battlefield, I could not in good conscience recommend this place to anyone. I would never return for sure! - Momtotwo

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. - pamhyatt1

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. - bsb814

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. - RV-1

This park could be a 10 but no water or sewer or wi- fi at any sites. No pull thru either yet there is a water park on the grounds. Long drive to camping area and twisty hills for a motor home towing. $40 with senior discount but close to where we had to be and Cherry Hill is just too far and must use I-495 which is always bad. - lesashubby

We stayed for 10 nights while a major new sewer line was being installed by the Fairfax County construction team. This is designed to ensure the blockages referred to in a recent post are a thing of the past. The only major drawback with this park is the lack of water at each site. However we conserve water by showering at the individual bathrooms which are new, large, warm and of the highest quality. The park is busy on Friday afternoon through to Sunday morning. The lack of water at the sites, no full hook-ups and lack of seasonals, means the park is relatively quiet during the week. Most campers are either visiting family in the area or using the park as a base to visit Washington DC. - R and M

Total sites shown includes lots of tent sites. About 40 sites for RV. Fill your tanks at a central spigot, and dump when necessary at the station. Spacious sites (gravel, and 1/2 are level, other 1/2 not level) have electrical pedestals only. The park is clean, quiet, and about as close to Washington tourist attractions as you're likely to find. Price shown is with senior discount, and county resident discount. This park is not run by RV'ers as indicated by the following. Time to dump. We went to the dump station, connected and pulled the dump valve. Sewage all over. On calling the office, was told "Oh yes, I heard this morning when I came to work there was a problem." She had known since 8 AM of a sewage stoppage, and others knew before, but no-one had posted a sign. We had no indication of a problem, as we were the first to dump that AM, and the sewer pipes had drained slowly overnight. Reinforces the adage: " You don't get anything you don't pay for." My numeric rating reflects this event. Otherwise would have been an eight. - rollingredwood

This park is heavily wooded off the Pohick Bay which is part of the Occoquan River Water Trail, connecting Occoquan Regional Park and the wildlife refuges of the Potomac River. We were there at a bad time, after some heavy rains with lingering showers. It made the air damp, the ground was wet but the site was not muddy. Our biggest problem was backing into the site with our 37' trailer. It took several attempts. Luckily no one was in the two sites across the street from ours so we were able to maneuver easier. The site was fairly level. There are two great reasons to choose this campground. The water sports are great for family fun plus you are within 35-40 minutes of the center of Washington DC. We were using it as an overnight spot, heading for western New York's Finger Lakes and New England to enjoy the fall foliage. - Lucy's Friend

Pohick Bay is close to a family member so it is always our campground of choice when we are in the area. For the first time we used their full hook up service.
50 amp electricity is not always reliable so we had to carefully monitor our usage. The sewer connection was about a foot out of the ground so it was a challenge to get our sewer hose to have enough slant to really work. We had to change sites in the middle of our stay and the second site was a challenge to try to get level. There were some other similar sites with the front tires off the ground. We choose to keep ours on the ground and never got completely level.
After saying all that, we do enjoy being at Pohick Bay. When the grandkids are with us they really enjoy the playground. They enjoy the woodsy feeling of the campground. Pirates Cove swimming pool is nearby. (There was a drowning the day before we used the pool, though.) The trails are fun to follow and lead you all the way down to the Potomac River, where there is another great playground. - Pennimanman

This is a very pretty park with lots of walking trails, right on the bay, and obviously in the season has lots of water activities on offer. We stayed here for a week using this campground as a base to visit Washington DC. The park is about 15 minutes drive from the metro railway station which made it nice and easy to get into the city. It is obvious that a lot of the sites are permanently booked out by people living in the area as the park really filled up on the weekend. This resulted in us being allocated a site (number 52) which is probably the worst and most difficult to get into. All the sites are back in but this one was up a rather steep incline and was the most uneven site we have ever had in our entire 18 months of RVing. We had to use every leveling block and plank of timber we owned. In addition to that the sewer hookup was higher than the outlet on our 5th wheel, so every time we needed to dump it was a two person job having to lift the sewer pipe up to get it to drain. When we checked out we used the dump station at the front gate - thankfully there was a good hose fitting and the sewer outlet was on a downward angle. We also had to fill our on board fresh water tank and use that as the water pressure was so low it trickled out of the tap. The staff were friendly and helpful but we wouldn't stay here again unless we were able to secure a better site. - Aussie Gap Year

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
Dec 2013 - $45.00
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

This resort is on the side of a mountain. It was hard to level the RV. Water pressure was low. The pull-through we had was long enough for our RV plus truck. Not very friendly when we checked in and didn't give us any paperwork as to what the park had to offer. No dog run. They need to trim some of the bushes. Should not be called a resort. Price was too high for what the park looked like. Don't look to go back there again. - gmasharp

We stopped here on the way home from SC and thought we could use the pool while and rest up before traveling the last leg of our journey. The pool water was green and no one was using it. The bathrooms, while clean, had very little water pressure, the knob for the water in the shower was hard to turn on and backwards. There was dog poop on the ground from not being cleaned up either by the employees or previous campers. the store, while large, was full of beer brewing products and not much in the way of camping supplies. - Lancelotsangel

It is a somewhat crowded resort. Everything is stacked. The plots are spacious but the access roads to them are a little convoluted.
The pool is between trees which has little sun and a few hours.
It is best that is heavily wooded for shade of MH. - gofion

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

I have used this park many times as I live 2 miles down the road. The entire campground is newly paved asphalt. The electric is new 30 Amp service. They maintain the camp very well. They are always blowing the roads and site of leafs and debris as it is nestled in the woods. most sites however are unusable to large RV's as they are on a steep grade or to short. There are only 25 sites total of which only 3 or 4 would accommodate a 40'er. It is a very pretty park, very quiet and safe. There are never more than 3 or 4 guest in the park at one time. I really enjoy this park. Closest to DC for the tourists. Only 10 mins to the Branch ave Metro Station. 2 week total length stay. The bath house is in serious need of upgrading. They say that it is scheduled to be replaced next year. - Powerstroke

Stayed here for a few days while visiting family in Waldorf. As with many CGs signage could be much better for finding CG office then CG after that. Special care is needed for those with larger rigs at CG entrance. Deep ditches either side of narrow entrance with evidence from those who didn't notice them. Interior roads somewhat narrow & needing extra care with larger rigs. A mixture of site pad sizes small to very long. Nothing really level. Again, the larger the rig the more limited the usable site. Some noise from nearby Andrews AFB but it is essentially an urban CG so noise goes with the territory. We have a 5th wheel. - Veebyes

This small campground is in a very convenient location in Clinton. We loved the senior rate. You can drive a short distance to get the Metro at Branch Station, which will take you into the D.C. area. You pick your site here and then go out of the campground, down the road and through another part of the park to register. It is not a short walk. The water hookup was in an odd spot, but the water was good, as was the 30 amp electric. The heavily wooded sites were partially paved but most were super small. Roads were paved also. There is plenty of privacy. We picked up many local antenna TV stations. The bathrooms were unacceptable & beyond being able to be really clean. They need to be gutted & totally redone. The men’s shower was so bad that men were using the only women’s shower, which is secured with only a shower curtain. The dump station was a very odd mechanism and the tank overflowed once we began the process of dumping. It was beyond awful. The bathroom and dump station problems pull this rating way down. We will look for another solution next time unless the bathrooms are redone. - R&S

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

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

Rate is for Coast to Coast members. We were in Glen 2. Our site was very wide with gravel to park on and grass next to it. There was a table and bar-b-q on the site. The playground across from our site was well maintained and large. Would have given higher rating, but when we took a walk we found a number of other areas that were very run down. - Mitchelmal
Apr 2011 - $10.00
Check in was easy with the friendly staff. When we arrived I did not think we would get satellite due to all of the trees. We were assigned site #295 which is a large open 30 amp full hook up site at Coast to Coast rate. There are many shaded sites. Dish Network and Verizon cell and air card service worked great. There appear to be 10 sites set aside for C2C but not exactly sure, we made our reservations online. There are residential sites and some of them are not in the best of shape. We did not see the stagnant pond but did see the large beautiful lakes. Numerous things to do here. - FD5

First time staying at this campground. Found it very nice to use while visiting the DC area. The staff was very friendly and helpful.

The park has gotten a upgrade since I last stayed here. All sites have a concrete pads now. Just wide enough for your RV. The electric is old and only 30 Amp. The roads are gravel and not maintained very well at all. When it rains it gets very muddy. All in all you can't beat the location. close to dc. - Powerstroke

The lady at the front office, is wonderful! She gives clear, concise instructions and is very helpful. The facility is immaculately maintained and go above and beyond to assist in your every need. They have upgraded since last reviews. If a repair is needed, they even assist in repairing or finding someone who can. The sites are nestled in between two of the three golf courses, so you might even see the President or other dignitaries playing. Very quiet, very clean. Only 9 miles to Washington, DC, so is strategically located for touring. Base has hospital, large commissary and exchange, dog walks and bike and running paths throughout. I will stay here again next summer! - PurplePassion

The folks here have pretty much figured everything out. It's a busy busy park and well organized. The roads are paved and the sites gravel and level. It's a big park with lots of sections - and plenty of clean bathhouses. Big laundry facilities. Large pool. Even a nice store - stocked with both food items and RV parts and accessories. They have you covered.
Good cell coverage and dozens of WiFi access points - but somehow the Wifi seems to drop every 15 to 20 mins or so - and then come right back within a couple of mins. Why is it so many RV parks exhibit this behavior?? We're using a combination of Verizon Aircards and their Wifi.
The bus comes into the park and picks up folks and takes them to the Metro station. Or you can drive to the metro station 4 miles away. But be aware that parking at the metro station is a flat $5.50.
It is crowded, and two or three interstates run all around the outside boundaries of the park - so there's road noise all the time. But its not as much of a bother as you'd expect.
It's no "Anchor Down RV Park" (see Anchor Down in Dandridge, TN) but it's pretty good and very convenient. There is even a Starbucks, Home Depot, Shoppers Grocery Store and Best Buy within a mile or so of the park. Very handy.
We would, and no doubt will, stay here again. - Creativepart
Sep 2015 - $67.00
Our first stay here and we loved it. We were given a premium site but had requested a standard. Due to our request to be near the pool, we were given the premium site. We were happy with the upgrade because of location, site size and short walk to the pools. Went in the pool everyday which was nice after a long day walking around DC. We did not use the metro at all but decided to drive to DC and park for free. It was 30 minutes if we were not traveling during rush hour. The store was great, huge RV section. The campground had a lot to offer and we were glad we stayed here. Will stay again at some point. - Happy Camper X2

We stayed at Cherry Hill Park for around four weeks in connection with the birth of a granddaughter in the DC area. The facility exceeded our expectations in about every possible way. Starting with check-in, which took probably no more than 5 minutes, we were constantly amazed at how efficient, competent, helpful and friendly the park staff were. The three different sites we camped at were all level and clean and large enough for our purposes, although by no means spacious. All had trash and recycling containers and bath facilities nearby, as well as places to walk our dogs, equipped with numerous dog waste bag stations and even enclosed dog parks. The cable and WiFi were both free and excellent. The bath houses were immaculate (except occasionally for bath house #2, which served a large number of itinerant tent camping groups) and well equipped. The pools and laundry facilities were first class and the Star Cafe was wonderful. A thing we really noticed (and appreciated) was the overall "live and let live" attitude. We never once saw any silly rules being pressed on anyone. - ScoWall

The river was beautiful. Mike was great. Staff was friendly. The tubing was AWESOME. The campsites were the biggest I've ever seen. Nice, wide, more than enough room. We arrived on a Thursday and left on Sunday and also had some tent people meeting us there. For us, the stay was nice. For the tent people not so great due to the bath houses being completely disgusting. You also have to bring quarters with you to use the showers which the website doesn't disclose. A certain nationality of people showed up Friday night, by the hundreds. Things went downhill from there. They were loud, dirty and I think the bath house situation was because of them. They played loud music, left their trash everywhere, sped through the campground. Border patrol was all over the place and cops frequented the campsite over the weekend. On Sunday, they all packed up and left. They left garbage EVERYWHERE. I felt so bad for the owners to have to clean up such a mess. This is such a beautiful place to camp. I hope the owners can figure out a way to deter the illegals (I'm assuming illegal with so much border patrol officers around). - Leslie C.

Don't trust these people, this used to be a great campground that our group stayed at for several years in a row. USED to be friendly and worked well with us. We always came with a group of 20-100 people. Then things started going downhill. A bad element of people started coming in, in spite of complaints by us for a couple of years in a row of campers from other sites/groups coming into our reserved areas disrupting our functions and items coming up missing nothing was done by management to curb it. Although management lives right across the road, once they are gone for the day that's it, you're on your own. The last straw was when we made our usual reservation at our usual group rate, something happened and the lady that used to handle our reservations was no longer there. ONE WEEK prior to our event we were told that neither the space we had reserved nor the rate we were promised would be honored. They doubled the price, we did get our space back, but not without a lot of hassle. This same thing happened to another sister group earlier. We won't be back. - luvmyhp

I read the reviews here, and decided to take a chance. Here's what we found: This park is relatively far from a main route. Getting there requires navigating a windy, hilly road for a few miles from RT 340. We had no trouble, but this campground is not close enough to I-81 to be useful to folks moving through. We arrived after dark to find the gate manned. We paid and were told to pick a site. Because it was dark, it was very hard to see where the sites were. Even during the day, it is hard to see where the sites are. Some of the marked sites have broken electric. We set up and found it was difficult to level the RV, given the sloping nature of the grass. If you plan on staying here, you should know that the sites along the river are nice, but lack electricity and tend to attract noisy groups. There was no effort to quiet down the loud music on Friday night. Bottom Line: This is a chill-out park that would be great for a few days in an RV. This is not the best park for thru-travelers due to the distance from the main roads. There are no facilities other than a dump station and water/electric. - outsid4evr

We stayed here while visiting DC. I was concerned with security prior to my arrival, but was very surprised to find a park that made me feel safe. The NP police headquarters, for all National Parks in this area, is located at the park entrance. The park is completely surrounded by a huge forest. Though it is close to I-495, we could barely hear traffic at night. We were there mid September when the sites were 75% unoccupied, one loop was completely closed for the season. Our site was paved. Handicap and a few others are paved with asphalt, but most are gravel/dirt. $16 regular nightly fee or $8 with senior/disabled pass. No sites have hookups. There is water (hose bib) within 100' of most sites. There was only one dump station, which will be problematic during high use times. I will stay here again spring or fall, but not during high use summer season. - R V Camper

This was a great place to leave RV and explore D.C. Metro is a half hour walk away. Easy to use but make sure you have $5 notes handy for the machines. Two toilet blocks but only one has a shower. Dry camping so don't expect electric water or sewer. No wifi but tmobile worked fine here. Very pretty setting. Apparently they still have ticks but we weren't bothered by any. Great option close to DC. - kiwitravelers

This is our "go-to" campground when visiting Washington, DC. Campground is close to 2 Metro stations for easy access to DC. Sites are spacious and plentiful. We had no problems finding a site for our 37' 5th wheel. The campground is dry camping, but we had a generator to help and fresh water and waste water carriers that kept us in our site for our full 2 week stay. At $8 a night with the Senior pass for National Parks, this is one of the best values we've found. - dthurk

Nice county park, very heavily wooded, 30 or 50 amp power only on D Loop sites. Water available from spigots, not at each site. No sewer on site, but good dump station at exit. Laundry available at interpretive center. Pretty good access to major roads, not far from a metro station.
This is an excellent alternative to the outrageously expensive campground at I-95 and I-495. We will definitely stay here again. - wandrr

We really like this park. First stayed because it was close to our daughter and grandkids. Shaded sites. Can't get satellite from roof mounted dome but over air TV is fine. We stay in "D" loop which has electric hookups. Park's website has good info on the sites. Usually will give you requested site. This trip, main trees on main entrance/exit road really needed trimming. Branches getting heavy and could not swerve around all of them. This is our only complaint. Very convenient to shopping/restaurants. 50 amp sites cost a few dollars more than 30. - MissingLinc

Stayed here for 5 nights while visiting the attractions in the DC area. Very good location for that, convenient to the Shady Grove Metro and the District, Gettysburg, and Antietam, just to name a few. Nice campground with gravel sites which could use a little work on the leveling, so the rating reflects that. Clean bathroom/shower buildings, reasonably well-designed. Very friendly staff. The rate seems a little steep for a County Park campground with no water/sewer hookups, but you're basically paying for the location. Best campground I've found yet in the DC area, but keep your leveling blocks handy. - A Frame

Just spent 5 days at the Brunswick campground and had a wonderful experience. Very friendly and helpful staff, clean restrooms (newly painted) and right on the C&O Canal Bike Trail, which is why we were there anyway. PLUS they had dry wood for campfires and they'll even deliver to your site.
Are trains running close by? Yes! Didn't bother our party of three a bit. We stayed in a pop-up and had water and electric for about $45/night. Reasonable for the area!
Will we return? Absolutely!!! - JeffKruzic

This campground has about 100 sites. About half of these are RV sites. My site had 20/30 amp service. Their web site said that they also have some 50 amp sites. The roads are gravel. My site, though level, was grass only. The main activities available here are fishing, hiking, biking, boating, rafting and tubing. This campground appears to be run by a local outfitter. The bath house was clean. They have handicapped facilities. In order to get to this campground one has to drive .75 miles along the C&O Canal Towpath. It is narrow, so if another vehicle comes along from the opposite direction, some compromising is in order. There is an active train track just beyond the towpath, so bring ear plugs. And the campsite URL is potomacrivercampground.com, which is a bit confusing. My Dish Tailgater worked fine and Verizon cell service had two bars. This is a nice campground for a quick getaway trip. I will return here. - User3064

We arrived in Brunswick and it was necessary to go over 2 railroad tracks and down a mile long road along the river to get to the campground. This road and the roads within the park are "horrible". It was like a washboard and had numerous potholes all along it. The park host was out somewhere in the park so we had to track him down. Sites were not level at all and we encountered more potholes getting to them. I would not recommend this campground to anyone. - travelfool

We stayed her for a weekend to tour the civil war battlefields of Fredericksburg. The campground was lovely and the people were very friendly. Our site was an electric/water very shaded back in site. The only real complaint was the fire pit was located under our awning so no fire. The showers were clean but the water pressure was not the best. Was able to connect to the wifi but it was extremely slow. If we come back again to finish touring the battlefields, since it takes more than a day, we would stay here again. - alnal90

We have stayed here 3 times in the last 2 years. It is a clean, well maintained park.
The narrow hilly road to get there is a challenge if you have a big rig.
It is kind of pricey, but, most KOA camps are.
There are many Civil War historical sites nearby.
For one or two nights, it is a great place to stay. - Jimal

This campground, in my opinion, looked like it was once a very nice campground. But now, it looks like it has fallen on hard times. About 60 sites, some have W/E/S. There was trash all over my site. I had to take a black plastic trash bag and filled it half way with trash.
There were two travel trailers on each side of me. Both were dirty, run down, had pieces missing and hoses, cables, trash and insulation strewn all around them. The sewer line at my site appeared to be 'full'. I should have left right then. But I didn't. The 30A connection was on a weathered log, had no front plate, no containment box, no cutoff switch and was exposed to the elements.
The one positive that I will say about this campground are that both of the employees that I dealt with were very nice, though they did not appear to agree with my observations, offer solutions nor apologize for the condition of the park. Unfortunately, I can't go back to this place nor can I recommend it to anyone else. - User3064

This campground is a diamond in the rough. The manager and maintenance man were both very friendly and helpful! This park was built 40+ years ago, with limited improvements but decent maintenance since. Consequently, big rig access is somewhat limited and may take some careful maneuvering. There are a few pull-through sites available, but getting a big rig into them may be a little dicey. The bathroom/shower facilities were clean but definitely show their age. There are a good number of long-termers here, but they were friendly and not rowdy. If you want to just kick back and relax, or want to visit the Culpeper area including any of the numerous wineries, this is a fine place to do it. - DB_Engineer

This is a very plain Jane park with only a few sites that all back to the river. Pads are gravel, barely. We arrived in the early afternoon to find no one at the office. We asked someone that was a seasonal camper and he had no idea what we should do. The signage said to call a number and not to pull into a site. We called and two hours later still no return call. We went ahead and picked a site, anyway. Finally someone, not the manager, came by and took our payment although we could not use our credit card as was stated on the web site. The water was also very brown even after running the water for a minute after hooking up. We only stayed overnight although we had planned on a 3 night stay. - HRambler

Maybe just the first 6 sites have 50amp service. The rest are 30amp with some sewer hookups. All have water and all back up on a bank on the Shenandoah River. There is a boat ramp and apparently deep water with a little current that had me concerned about launching a kayak. We had to use 2x6's under the front tires to level and the soft ground absorbed about half of the boards under the jacks of our diesel pusher. The WiFi was strong and fairly fast. About half the sites seem to be seasonal. - Juandering

This campground is off Rt. 66, and there are signs on the highway and off to direct you. We've stayed here twice for a night. It is basically a large grassy area with a line of sites on the Shenandoah River and treed. There is a boat ramp and fishing in the river. Very peaceful and clean. Picnic tables and fire rings. You pick your spot and the owner comes around in the AM for payment. Seem to be some seasonals, but lots of sites available. - poodlecamper

We, myself,son-his girlfriend and my 7,6,2 year old grand daughters camped for the first time at Front Royal RV Campround this past weekend Aug 15-17. The campground didn't fit the description on their website- the hot tub was broken, bath house closed where we were camping, other one was by the office at the opposite end of the campground. Site was small and uneven. There weren't any activities for the girls and there were no other children to be seen, campground had lots of open sites for a weekend stay. For adults only it would be very quiet. We were disappointed and will not stay there again. - grandma2girls

We stayed there a single night as we were passing by. The main attraction was that the owners were willing to allow late-night check-in. The sites were far from level, but we did OK with our auto-leveler in our 37 foot rig. 50 amp power was OK. There was a pool, but we really didn't check anything out. The store had the basics, but some things had no prices, so the owner just made something up (though not unreasonable). - Brian Gould

Big rig friendly with level sites. Wi-Fi and cable was good except did not have HGTV. There were numerous washers and dryers but half of them were broken.

I generally only review anything when I have something good to say. RV parks that don't live up to their promotions are not that uncommon and it just usually is not worth the time to spread negativity. This particular facility, however, is worth an exception just in hopes of saving others the disappointment and aggravation of a poorly designed facility with just about the rudest front desk person we've encountered in 20 years of RVing. This won't be detailed, but the $125 fee for two nights in mid-week off-season; the abrupt, careless and downright rude behavior of the office staff; the narrow sites, unlevel and nothing more than parking spots, really; the non-functional WiFi and non-functional television cable. Well, they're probably enough to give an idea of our experience. I expect they are around only because they have no nearby competition. My advice - Find a different park if you want a pleasant experience. - Travelin'2

If we hadn't paid this high rate, I might be more kind. But we had a huge generator running day and night within 50 feet and a second 200 feet away. The cable hookup was in the next site. The "free" Wi-Fi was a joke--it takes 3 minutes to open a traditional site. But they offer you a "speed-up" for $$. Their café had only half of the things we wanted to order. The lifeguard sat while a stranger rescued a toddler. C'mon folks -- live up to your billing! - sherwood

October trip, so park was almost empty. Some seasonals. Nicely wooded. Some road noise which probably would not be noticeable if normal park noises were happening.

Would definitely return if in the area. - Maine-iacs

Warning: Read all reviews. I will add to what was not stated. First a very narrow rough dirt road entrance in a bad spot in the highway. The 82 year old owner was rude and greedy. Wanted extra $3.00 For the towed. Once she found out our holding tanks were near full she refused to let us use her dump station. Said she had just had her septic pumped and didn't want it filled up again. Not to mention a strong odor of alcohol as we conversed. She did agree to give us a refund. We would not recommend this park to anyone. - arlin

So much potential...shaded sites, quiet stream. And then there was the nasty lady who runs the place and the trashy appearance of the campground itself. When we arrived there was one other camper already there. We were placed right next to them - no option for moving to a more secluded site. Owner/host never got out of her chair when we arrived. Never a friendly wave or 'hello'. Just give me your money - park over there. Campsite wasn't very level, filled with trash and cigarette butts. There was even a sign at the office encouraging campers to burn trash in the campfire. A bit of traffic noise but the deal breaker was the trash and host. We won't be back. - Doneitall

My wife and I have a small class C. We decided to stay here based on the review and the Web site. When we arrived we noticed garbage and leftover food all over a table outside the office, There was so much junk we had to walk around the patio to get to the office. On our way to the office an older lady came out of a trailer beside the office. We asked for a full hookup. She quoted $27 for a mostly grass pad. Then stated that it was a backin. I said ok, we will unhook the towed. She said in that case it would be an extra $3. I said no thanks and left. On our way out we looked at the sites. We are glad we passed this one by. - afundaburk

There needs to be an addition in the RV Club books that this is a members only park and non-members are put in a section C slum. A long walk to all the amenities.
No cable, WIFI took three tries to connect. RR Tracks nearbye. I hope they are not active.

Our lot was on gravel, and narrow. It wasn't really level, but we managed. We didn't have a problem with the satellite reception. They did have a nice fenced in area for the dogs.

As others have mentioned, this is not an RV park: it's a mobile home park that added spaces for RVs. It's not very tidy, but it was adequate for what we wanted: to be close to Frederick. Most RV sites are full of people doing contract work in the area for 4-6 months. All spaces are pull-throughs with concrete pads, which was nice as we got a lot of rain. No shade at all. The manager was very helpful and accommodating and he seems to keep a close eye on the park. Lots of restaurants and shopping close by. And while it's not an RV resort, if we return to the area we would stay here again. - mauigirl7254

This 'park' is NOT a campground. This is a former Mobile Home park that has been 'transitioned' to an RV camp (not campground). The only amenities are a laundry room. No Restrooms, no showers, no playground, no pool, we even have to mow our own grass!! The rates are very high ($800/month) but it does INCLUDE Electric (I have only used my propane sparingly for cooking). The manager is only here on Tues and Thurs from 10:00am-2:00pm. He is a nice guy, but not educated as to how a 'campground' should operate. Everyone here is permanent to semi-permanent and working in the area (Mostly men, very few families). I plan to be here until Jan 2010, when my husband hopes to return to the US (from working in Abu Dhabi, UAE) and we can finally retire and take off! The one thing that attracts people to this camp is the location. It is in the heart of Frederick, MD close to EVERYTHING! Very convenient location. - onthecoach

The park is in a beautiful and quiet area. A few of the sites on the ends of the rows had more privacy, but most sites did not afford any privacy. There are no services here, and no showers, but there is potable water near the dump station. There is no wifi, and I was able to get att cell service (but not verizon) with an antenna, for brief periods here and there. Generator use is restricted to two hours in the am and three in the late afternoon. There are miles and miles of great hiking trails. The biggest problem I had with this park was that there were only a handful of nearly level sites, and none of them are reservable. Many sites had sharp level differences both front to back and side to side. - KAP99

We are owners and keep our motor home at Skyline Ranch Resort all summer except when we are traveling. We love being there in our "second home." We do not use the facilities as we have our own bathroom and shower. The resort has improved a lot over the last few years. Swimming pool is amazing. The chalets are very nice and cabins are rustic. The dog park is the best in any campground where we have stayed and we have visited many. We travel with two dogs. We have a level site that is long with a nice view of the pool and next to the ice cream parlor. If we have this site next year, we will add sod. - Margie S Heiler

Under normal circumstances, I am a travel trailer camper. My stay at this "resort" was in a cabin, but I looked at the facility with the experienced eyes of a rv camper. I found the site sizes to be average. The roads were tighter and more narrow and looked to be an issue with bigger rigs. I did walk to one of the shower houses....DISMAL! Very outdated looking and had not been cleaned in several days as there was a large, dried fecal smudge on the floor that had animal tracks in it and there were black shoe prints all over the floor. No effort had been made to mop or clean anything. The added fees for use of the ATM were outrageous. And if you want a scoop of ice cream be prepared to part with an arm and a leg...$3.49 for a single scoop. And based on the scoop size, you'd think they were scooping gold bouillon. I was actually glad that we didn't have our camper, but also sad that I had to stay in one of the disgusting "rustic" cabins. "Rustic" translates into very small, extremely filthy, outdated space. Not sure who they keep around as the cleaning crew, but they must be visually impaired and have no olfactory sense. There were visible cobwebs and spiders in every room. I did not get the shower curtain closed well enough and some water splashed out on the floor. I made a visibly clean spot on the dirty linoleum just by rubbing my foot around with a wet paper towel. The steps on the front of the cabin were loose and rotting. The maintenance crew came to "fix" the step, which consisted of an inadequate patch to prop up the sagging corner. I pity the fool who spends hard-earned money to rent this dump then has the misfortune of being the person to fall through the steps and then pay a doctor office co-pay for a tetanus shot. I see no reason on this earth to ever go to this place again. - LRDavis

The campground is located in a convenient to DC and Baltimore. The site are large and there is plenty of grass. They have cabins with attached back-ins. The management is very difficult to work with. The other employees are nice and helpful, but even they speak poorly of the manager. He seems to make rules up as he goes along. He has one rule for one person and another rules for the rest. We enjoy staying here but are considering not returning because of the high price and the management. - boatwench1

It is apparently VA parks policy to not assign sites during reservation. When you arrive you are told to pick out an available site and report to the office site selected. This method requires 2 trips and inconvenience. Check-in staff were friendly. Interior roads and some site drives were paved. Most site drives were gravel. The sites are new and on a side of a hill. Interior roads are a little narrow to turn or back into sites, if you have a big rig. Take it slow and easy. Good amount of green space between sites. Trees are small, so little shade and they don't present a hazard. No Verizon cell service. Sat TV was easy to receive. Many water activities and zipline are nearby. - eaglessoc

We were on site 4 which is super unlevel for a diesel pusher, all tires were off the ground except for the rear driver's side. Site 2 also unlevel, rear tires off the ground. The rangers need to do a better job leveling the sites. Most sites looks level, but once you park a diesel pusher, you will notice that sites are unlevel. Checkout time of 3 PM is great. Power pedestal worked great this time. Water pump station noise in back of campground needs to be shielded with sound wall. - univmd

For a state park, this 4-year old campground was better than we expected. We loved the size of the sites and the separation between them. We were on the upper tier of sites (#2) where most, if not all, are pull-through sites. The sites' patios are staggered, so your next door neighbor isn't peering onto your patio when he looks out his window. The lower tier had mostly back-in sites, but were much closer to the river access points. I was a little disappointed in the access points, thinking they would be more user-friendly, but that's just me. The electric and water utilities were flawless. Satellite access in the upper tier was excellent. As noted before, cell phone service can be a challenge. The visitors' center has a Wi-Fi network that you can access while there. It's a bit of a hike to get there, or just drive as most do. Otherwise, you need to drive into Front Royal, about 8 miles away. Our camp host was a tent camper, and a very pleasant one at that. Overall, a great, relaxing, and quiet campground. - USMCRET

Nice new park with wide paved campground roads with both back in and pull through sites. Bath house was like new and in the style of newly renovated VA State Parks. Laundry facilities provided in one of the two bath houses. RV sites were large, well separated, and generally level but still needed blocking to level our RV. Some pull through sites were runoff rutted. Plan to arrive early to pick your best unoccupied site. Lots of trails to hike. Camped mid week and only two of the 23 RV sites occupied. Will definitely be back. - HR52

If you're camping in a tent or want to dry camp this would be rated a 8 or 9. Our 35ft 5th wheel was almost too big for the few electric sites available. No water or sewer available. I would advise the 35ft plus rigs to stay away. The bridge is very narrow but it looks like they are working on a new bridge. It's early but it looks promising for better access to the park. They offer tube/canoe service. The store is barely stocked but they do have basics. - Craig H

This is a small and simple riverfront campground. The main focus is the simple camping and the river, bring your tube or kayak! We dry camped at a river front site for $25.00 a night. Very large site, not level and no pad, but useable with the use of our bus jacks. Great to sit right on the river, fish,wade, and within walking distance is a canoe rental shop that runs trips on the river, to include transportation (this business is not part of the campground). The road here may be a challenge for large 40'+ motorhomes or big trailer rigs. There are some steep grades, tight turns, low trees, and the bridge is narrow but safe. We were fine and have a length of 33' and 12' overhead clearance. Campground overall is very suitable for tenting, small to mid size trailers and motorhomes. There are about 60 sites which are divided into three main areas. The first section includes about 5 sites that are pull through and have hookups. The second section of perhaps 20 sites runs along the riverbank of the Shenandoah River and puts you right on the river with very good sized sites; no hookups. The third section is a large field; no hookups. Roads are gravel. Staff was friendly and the office had a small store with the very basics. The restrooms/showers were clean when we looked, but we did not use them. - f.wernlein

Rate is for Zone Pass holders. Nice and quiet, except for occasional ordinance testing about 15 miles away. Managed to get good DirecTV shot at site B26. Not easy here - many, many trees. Didn't use Off quickly enough and got mosquito bitten every day. We'll go back, but probably not when it's hot and damp because of the bug bites. Don't believe your GPS when you come. One of ours tried to send us down a dirt road, and the other took us down a permanently closed road over a dam whose road had washed away. - VA Jim and Barbara

We had been camping at Harbor View three weekends ago, we decided go come back made reservation for Aug 16 weekend requesting a pull-thru. We pulled in to the campground that morning and they told me they have a new policy that only 38 foot RV can use the pull through sites and I told them that my RV is a Fifth wheel 35 foot with slide outs on both sides and a satellite dish that I can only use in the pull through sites. We have stayed in the pull-through on past visits, and four of them were unoccupied when we arrived. They tried placing me in a back in site that would be to small. I was told that their policy is first come first served we will never book or join with encore again ! - User639

Enjoyed our stay again this time, but they continue to have water problems. The site we originally wanted didn't have water, and its neighbor had a hose strung to an adjacent site because it was dry too. They repaired one section of the park with new water and power, but they charge $5 per night extra to stay in that section. That section is not upgraded, just fixed. Not a big deal to go from $0 TT member price to $5, it's just aggravating. It also causes the other two sections to be crowded while the "premium" section is sparsely used. We'll be back, but not as happily as before. - VA Jim and Barbara

No water right now. Wonderful getaway campground. Love going there in a tent. Can accommodate an RV or travel trailer. Has a dump station. No electric or water at the site. - tec2tec

Rate reflects Senior discount from NPS. This place has improved since our last visit. It is in a good location, has easy access, each site is roomy, and comes with table. Check in is "easy" but first go to the office, then they have you pick a site, return to MWR, sign up, then go hookup. Lot's of back and forth. We found a good site close to bath house and were able to pick up WiFi in coach. If we were further away, not sure it would have worked. However, the utilities are still messed up, with a need to share water stanchions, and sewers not always placed conveniently. In addition, they seem to be (according to other campers) always working on water issues and so the quality is questionable. We resorted to bottled water. And when we dumped at our site prior to leaving, we realized the sewer lines were backed up. Told by another camper that this happens every other month or so. So if you can do without WiFi, cable, have long water hoses and two-fers, and are willing to chance the water and sewer, it's not a bad place. But clearly, they need to put some money into the infrastructure. - Too-wow

This is a MILITARY campground on Fort AP Hill, available to military and civilians working for Dept of Defense. It is not difficult to get on and use the park, if you are authorized. Getting a full hook-up site at Champs is almost impossible with all the contractors and civilian employees taking up many of the "good" sites. Plus, they've got 4 of the 30 amp sites tied up with rental trailers. The camp host couple both work on A.P. Hill. The utilities are misplaced and not effectively utilized. Despite all this, the location is excellent. We used it for a shake-down at the start of spring and to help friends who had just purchased an RV (retired military) learn how to set up and use the RV. It is probably not a destination site, unless you want to hunt in the fall or do some fishing. Some LONG term seasonals (over a year!) are taking up the 50amp sites, so your choices are limited. - Too-wow

To me this is almost the perfect campground. It's no frills sites on grass with full hookup. I'd have rated it higher, but the water pressure is poor. I used my on board tank and water pump while staying there. It's location is great - close to Martinsburg, Antietim Battlefield, Manassas Battlefield, Harper's Ferry, Shephardstown and an easy day trip to Gettysburg. Easy access to I-81. I'd certainly return if in the area again. - 15243

We stayed just one night. Very basic campground, we had a level parking spot and could drive in and out without difficulty. The owner was very friendly. He met us and led us to our site. We followed him as he stopped at several sites then decided to take us to another. Finally settled on one near the highest area of the park. It was a nice location. We were pretty much in a field with utilities. That describes the whole park. Nearest site was 50 feet away. Payment is cash or check, no credit cards. The campground can be seen from Highway 9 traveling south from Martinsburg. Take the next turn-off to the south, two left turns and the road ends in the campground. - LivinTheDream

We stayed at this campground due to convenience (location for a family event). Price $30 a night (no credit cards, only cash or check). Here is the run down: Positives are as follows: • Price - $30 a night – for electric/water & sewer (can’t beat the price) • Location – 10 minutes from Martinsburg, from interstate 81. • Big pull through sites • Staff – very friendly – we liked the manager a lot – when our A/C kicked off due to heat, and we had to leave the campground for our family event, and he agreed to stop by our camper to make sure the A/C kept running since we had 2 dogs in the camper. • There is a small stream behind the campground – I think they call it Opequon river. The water looked clean and flowing nicely and you can walk under the new route 9 bridge, but I can’t see anyone fishing from the river banks - they are too high and the water seemed too shallow. I wish we could have heard it at the camper – it would have been soothing. Negatives: • No swimming pool • No playground • No cable • No Wi-Fi • Several permanent trailers but no one bothers you and the staff tries to move you to a non-residential section. I think it is a lot of space for a 40 site campground – surprisingly – we had a huge yard area. • No bathhouse, you will need to use your own camper for showers and bathroom. They have something being built that looked like a bathhouse but it was not done. • Right beside new interstate 9 east/west and you hear the traffic when you are outside the camper, and even inside if a tractor trailer or emergency vehicle passes. • If you like scenery and nice landscape at your campground, this also might not be your cup of tea because they have equipment lying around the building under construction. Bottom-Line: • We would stay again, due to location and price and staff. It is more of a one-night stand to pull into if you need to stay overnight somewhere when you are tired. • Also, it is a little hard to find. Take the exit off the NEW route 9 for Opequon LANE (it is important that you look for LANE on MapQuest, not “road” or “drive” because MapQuest will take you to some God awful location if you look for a “drive” or “road”. • When we stayed, Friday and Saturday (last weekend in June 2012) a tornado hit Martinsburg, WV and our camper had the electric awning ripped completely off. This was of NO fault of the campground, but I think being out in the open field like environment didn’t help when the 85 mph wind rolled over the bridge and up to our camper. We were not there when it happened or we would have rolled our awning in before the storm. The manager cleaned the down trees up very quickly. They do try to keep it a fairly decent place. • Lastly – this campground is NOT that bad, so I hope that is not the picture I have painted. This is not really a place to have your summer vacation, however, they need to advertise more – a website, add some pictures of the BIG sites, advertise price and location and then once the bathhouse is in, perhaps invest in a pool and I think business would improve drastically. Again – we would stay again, probably next year for the next family gathering. - Tinkielynn

We had come in and booked for two nights. Once we were there we realized it was not going to be for us. No level ground, no sewer, place was a mess and had cats running all over the place. We stayed one night because we had family that stayed in tents. We asked for a refund for the second night but they said they dont do refunds only gives rain checks. I will be giving those to someone else because we are not going back. - HeatherRVing

Let's start with the pluses: great people to deal with, easy choice of sites, wonderful tenting areas, right on an arm of Lake Anna, staff quick to help and correct problems (just tell them the restroom is dirty and it's tended), well stocked camp store, great views and good water with mini-beach areas for swimming. We checked out the area before deciding to spend a weekend and are not sorry we did. Met great folks, had relaxing time, and enjoyed ourselves. Now for the minuses: few level sites for RVs, hookups shared with others, dump station on top of hill, road in to campground (and up to dump site) could be improved, some campers let dogs run and leave messes where ever, electric box had no breaker plus boxes were older and loose, a few folks were not observant of quiet hours. In summary, this is a rustic site with many seasonal/permanent trailers (at the back of the property) where they welcome you and you can relax. But do NOT expect state park level sites with well maintained hook-ups. If you are into tenting, this is DEFINITELY a place to consider. If you have a larger RV, you might want to look first. The pictures in the web site are excellent and very representative of what we experienced. We would go back on a non-holiday week or weekend to enjoy the people, the lake and the ambiance. - Too-wow

No one answered the phone and no sign of owners or management, but did speak to a cleaning lady who couldn't assist In any way. Roads rutted, causing tow vehicle to drag. Had to drive over fire pit to get into/out of site. Lots of long term campers in the park. Has LOTS so potential but looks like owners may have given up. Don't know how it's rating manages to be so high. But! Convenient to I-81 for overnighting on the north-south migration route. Smaller rigs would be much happier here. We are 65' with tow vehicle. - VRoss716

This is a very basic campground. It may be a little over-priced for what you get, but this is a very expensive area. The owner is working hard to make it a success. While it is convenient for an I-81 stop-over, there are too many permanent residents and leveling is almost impossible. - larriin

This is one of those parks that could be a real gem if it wasn't full of full-timers with rundown trailers and barking dogs. There are new managers recently as of september, and they are working to clean the place up. Very friendly folks. The area isn't a vacation destination, so I imagine that parks in this area have to allow full-timers in order to make a living. However, having some rules in place and enforcing them would make things better. Pros: Close to main highway, good water pressure, long spots with plenty of room on the sides, pretty creek running through park. Cons: Busy road right next to park, full-timers with rundown trailers and barking dogs, our power surge protector was constantly flashing red letting us know that the power source wasn't steady, dirt spots and very muddy due to recent rain. I think the new managers are on the right track with this campground, but I don't know if they plan on cleaning up the clientele of the park at all. It worked for a couple nights stay so we could go into DC for a day. - Salina

Nice State Park in Maryland! Pleasantly small camping area, with only 34 sites. It was an enjoyable 5 night stay! The weekend nights were busier, which apparently had the drive by female campground supervisor needing to check on every site very often. A few comments and suggestions were a little unnecessary. The weeknights were a bit better with the male drive by campground supervisor(s) simply driving by and waving! The camp host was convenient and helpful when needed for information. Pet friendly park and campground! Shower/Restroom facilities were well lit, clean and in easy access for all campsites! Beautiful shaded campsites! Each site has a large well built picnic table and fire ring with grill insert and 2 lamp posts which were quite handy! All roadways in very good condition! Lots of wildlife everywhere you look, helping to make our camping trip an enjoyable one! - patti&charlie

A great little campground. It is centrally located to many historic areas and Maryland State Parks. There is a small pond to fish in and trails to hike within the park. The only sad part was that the park host is leaving this year and she not only kept the entire park clean, but assured that it was safe and quiet. - electrician549

This park is a gem, with top notch facilities for enjoying the outdoors. Facilities rival those of most private campgrounds we've stayed at. Each site has a picnic table, fire ring with grill, lantern posts on a gravel pad. Some sites are W&E only but there are a few full hookup sites too and primitive sites. Sites are well-spaced. The sites are shady and cool, roads are good, and the bath/shower houses were spotless, well-lit, with ceiling fans and good ventilation. The dump station was being worked on during our visit, but wasn't a concern for us. There's a small fishing pond and lots of walking trails. The campground host was very friendly and escorted us to our site. We would drive out of our way to stay here again. - leorah

We stay at this park twice a year for a week while visiting family. It's a well-run park; lots of rules and not inexpensive, but it's consistently good. I do question why an overnight visitor costs $10 but the same person as part of your camping party would only be $5, but other than that I have no complaints. If you're spending more than one night, make sure you borrow a gate pass; otherwise you'll end up leaving your car outside one night. The deposit for the pass is now $40; we were told that too many of them weren't being returned when it was $20. Contrary to what was posted in a previous review, it is possible to get satellite reception if you request one of the "front" sites. It's takes a bit of positioning, but we were able to get DirecTV.
It's worth noting that approaching the park via MD94 is easier than via MD97. Both are doable, but we use 94 since we are coming from the west, anyway. - docj

Overall this park does not seem to care about customer service. Perhaps this is because they cater to weekend guests from Baltimore and do not really care what out of town guests say. Unfortunately there are not many alternatives in Maryland, especially near Baltimore. Overall the park is OK, not outstanding. The facilities are clean, but could use some updating. They do have things for kids to do. Again the playground equipment could use some TLC. Do not believe everything the web site states. For example the "petting zoo" is comprised of a pen with 2 goats and a sign on the fence that states the goats bite. The miniature golf costs extra, even for those guests that have paid extra to visit with a camper in the park. There are a lot of sites crowded together. Even the larger sites are not big although they have quite a few sites that can accommodate large rigs lengths. However you side neighbors will be close. Most of the roads are paved, but none of the sites are. They do have 50A/30A electric service and full hook ups with basic cable. Do not try to get your satellite to work, the entire park is heavily wooded. Our biggest problem with the park is their total lack of customer service. We voiced 2 separate questions which ultimately became complaints and the staff's response in both cases was "oh well". This take it or leave it attitude really put me off. They know basically they are about the only game in town so take it or leave it. For the quality of the park and the need for some TLC, we felt the prices were high, but again, there is little or no competition. I will probably be stuck going back when we visit our daughter only because there is nothing close other than this park, but I cannot recommend it for those wishing a quiet park to stay for a week when visiting Baltimore. It is pretty noisy on the weekend. Read all the reviews then decide for yourself. - Medico

Rate seems a bit high for what you get but this is the only game in town. Cable and Wifi available. Great location 3 miles out of historic Winchester and about 6 miles from I-81. Cacapon Resort State Park is 28 miles north on route 522. The quaint town of Berkley Springs is just 7 miles further north. Some sites are concrete slabs, some are gravel, both pull-thru and back-in sites available. Our pull through site allowed us to stay connected for an overnight. No leveling necessary on concrete pad. There are many shade trees next to the site. Campground has a nice pool, playground and lots of open space, rolling topography. The bathrooms are very outdated and need a serious update. Old wooden doors on the toilets but clean. Showers were roomy with a plastic shower curtain but dressing area was not private; consisted of a bench just outside the shower curtain, not enclosed. We will stay there again...great spot for overnight or for visiting interesting areas nearby. - Lucy's Friend

We usually stay here on our way to our son's home in southern Virginia. It is a wonderful campground for an overnight stay. We especially appreciate how clean this campground is.

Beautiful, well maintained park with gorgeous landscaping: no shortage of lush green grass and flowers. We stayed here for three nights and as we prepared to leave for our next destination, discovered a large slide would not retract! Park staff went beyond being courteous and helpful by recommending a repair company: they actually helped PUSH THE SLIDE IN. Beautiful grounds, friendly, caring people, we highly recommend. - User615

This park is centrally located to visit Baltimore, Annapolis and DC. It has both large pull thru and wooded shaded spots for tents and cabins and shady sites and full sun.

We met with 4 other campers here for our Club's Grandparents' Week. We ended up paying $200 more to have a golf cart. The park has lots for kids to do, including many activities. I rate it high for that. The dog park, however, is a sorry sight. There is no grass, it has poison ivy and is very small. That was a huge disappointment given they have so much ground and everything else is so nice. - Margie S Heiler

We stayed a week here. It's a great place for kids. Just about everything is included in the cost of the site. Ours kids are teens and they still used all the attractions. Our site (204) was very level, had a nice cement pad. The cable box is a good 20 feet away so bring a long coaxial cable with you. We were escorted to the site but the "ranger" said he wasn't supposed to help guests back in. Fortunately some friendly campers jumped in to help. This row of motorhome sites has the best views in the park. 204 is directly across from the playground, which was fine with us but if you want quiet you might get one in another row or further away from campground. I had a couple of issues with electric and they handled it quickly. It's hard to reach the front desk by phone. There is one person working there who I think has been there a little too long. However, the young staff was very friendly. Overall, its a nice park. The "rangers" we called the Yogi PoPo and it did seem sometimes like were the "inmates" as opposed to customers. But that didn't ruin the trip. When they say "Quiet Time" is 11 PM, they mean it. All kids have to be back on the site at 11, which is early in the summer, for our kids anyway. The washing machines are clearly marked as "cold water only". The dryers were very good. The store is nice and has a lot of RV supplies. - User3662
