1 Park near Stafford, Virginia

We decided on the spur of the moment to take a quick little camping trip this weekend and went to Aquia Pines, which is the only campground in the nation to have its own brewery onsite, Wild Run Brewery, and they are very good to boot.
The campground itself is an older campground, mostly tight and wooded, very hilly and can be difficult to maneuver around, with gravel roads and pads. There is an open area for larger RV's. Some seasonals, all were well kept. Site was fairly level, but others were way off and people had to use a lot of blocks to level. We wanted just a W/E site, but the water was not yet turned on for the season (the campground is open year round) so were put on a full hookup site that had water for the same price. Bathrooms were dated, in need of a fresh coat of paint, but were very clean, which is what matters most to me. WiFi was excellent at our site. Nice size playground, pavilion and pool, though the later was closed. The campground sits between Route 1 and I-95, so lots of road noise, especially in the back closer to I-95 (and that is with a sound barrier there). We were toward the front of the campground and it was not too bad. Very friendly staff and owner. We enjoyed our stay and plan to return. - Cyclonic

We stayed here for two nights. This park is very busy and is nestled in a very hilly spot full of mature pines. It's lovely but the sites are somewhat crowded together making maneuvering a big rig a bit tricky. We used their laundry and found that to be fine. Traffic on US 1 is heavy, but we had no trouble getting in or out of the location. - george r

Two big issues. First was ants. Lots of those teeny weeny, almost microscopic ants. Asked management to treat area, and their response was that it wasn't their problem, and that we should just get some salt and spread it around. Sorry, but we've been to tons of RV parks, and this is the first one who refused to treat for ants. They got up into our rig, and we had active ant trails all over our kitchen and elsewhere. Second issue was WiFi. Their routers all would show up under one name, but not all of them worked correctly, so basically it depended on where you were in the park whether WiFi worked or not. We ended up having to haul our computers to the deck close to the office in order to access WiFi.
Here's the deal with this park. It is in a great overall location - close to DC, Civil War sites, the excellent National Museum of the Marine Corps, shopping and more - but the specific location is really poor. It is sandwiched between I-95 and US-1, and believe me, you'll hear both of them all the time (with plenty of sirens). Also, access is via US-1, which during certain parts of the day is EXTREMELY BUSY. Fortunately, there were enough kind commuters to let us either in our out without too much of a wait, but don't be surprised to see a wall of traffic as you enter or exit.
The park is extremely hilly, and many of the sites will take some skill to get your rig in (and out) of. - coffeetime
