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. We camped at Aquia Pines Camp Resort in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Located a short drive south of USMC Quantico, and the incredible National Museum of the Marine Corps, this park is also reasonably located south of Manassas, VA and Washington DC. Touring areas of the Chesapeake is easy from this park as well.

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. We camped at Aquia Pines Camp Resort in a Travel Trailer.

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. We camped at Aquia Pines Camp Resort in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

We were up there to see the last flight of the CH-46 that the Marine Corps was retiring. Air and Space Museum and the Marine Corps Museum was very good. Traffic in Stafford is bumper to bumper after 3 PM.

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. We camped at Aquia Pines Camp Resort in a Motorhome.

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. We camped at Aquia Pines Camp Resort in a Motorhome.

Do NOT go here unless you just need a nice, cozy, place to park your big RV. The bathrooms are clean and the pool and playground are great. BUT the tent and cabin spaces are far from these facilities, out of Wi-Fi range, do not allow fires and are so close to Route 95 that the traffic drowns out conversation. It is clear from the overgrown tent sites and empty cabins that nobody uses these options. My cabin took hours to air out and had lots of dead flies. The pitch black darkness and traffic noise made it impossible to feel safe - a little light on the path to the facilities would have gone a long way. The owner could not have been ruder or more demeaning when I expressed my concerns after a sleepless night and asked to be let out of the two day minimum. I left feeling that he was unprofessional and abusive and that I would have been treated differently if I were not traveling alone with my son. We camped at Aquia Pines Camp Resort in a Campground Cabin.

This park is quite narrow for getting around the lanes to get to your site. Sites are mostly on hills; hard to get into and out of. They say big rigs are okay, and we did get in and out, but not without a great deal of maneuvering. Trying to get propane at their store was a chore also. Hard to get the hose to the RV. It is also very, very pricey. We stayed there and took public transport into New York City. Office staff was very nice to deal with, but the park is overpriced in our opinion. We camped at Aquia Pines Camp Resort in a Motorhome.

The owners of this park are deceptive. Be careful. We distinctly asked for a pull thru several times, were assured we had that and were given a pull IN. Had to back our fiver out. Could not even detach as the site was on an embankment. Please be advised they are building a hotel on their adjacent site and huge trucks rumble through at breakneck speeds all day long. Noise and dust are the rule here. Staff was not there to greet us and got annoyed when I asked for my Good Sam discount. Most of the sites are occupied by construction workers. I cannot recommend tthis place. We camped at Aquia Pines Camp Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

Aquia Pines is a wonderful overnight or long term park. The owner is very friendly and constantly ensuring that the park is clean and any repairs needed are handled immediately. Several types of sites from pull through for big rigs to very rustic tent camping and everything in between. Even rustic large group or Boy Scout areas available. Great pool, laundry, TV room, and playground. Cabins from one room to large ones with kitchen, bath, bedroom and living. We are full time military and full time RVers. Our stay was for 6 wonderful years...never a complaint. Several military and construction personnel do stay long term, but keep their sites very clean. Several families and retired spend a night to several nights. Pet friendly. Even in winter, the owner ensures the main roads are cleaned immediately and salted. We miss the staff. Built into a hill area that is terraced nicely. Stayed in back for 3 years and newer section for 3 years. Loved both areas. We camped at Aquia Pines Camp Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

What I’m looking for in campgrounds is easy big rig access, full hookup at 50 amp, level sites, secure area, and clean restrooms. Drive-thru, Wi-fi and cable TV are bonus features which are much appreciated. I have no interest in a pool, a dog run, or kid’s activities. I’m here to see sights in the area and the campground is simply a place to park my 37‘ 5th wheel. Previous comments I've read about this campground indicated this campground was built into a hillside, and I agree. But, I must say it is terraced with many very level sites. Some of the pull through sites have a hump for entry or exit which is no good for me as I'd be scraping the rear of the camper on rock. The site I had was flat (no hump), and I was able to easily get to the site (pull-through )and set up with no problems. The pool was still winter covered when we were there, but I would not have used it anyway. Looks like pool could be nice with nearby playground in summer. Laundry was very adequate. There is a front section and a back section to the park. The front (newer section) does not have mature trees which is fine with me. The back section has many trees and narrow access roads that I would prefer NOT to try to park in. For the most part these were not pull though sites. The staff was very courteous and friendly and allowed me to see my site before pulling in. I felt the nightly price was a bit much. As far as "next times" I think I'd shop a bit more before staying here again. We camped at Aquia Pines Camp Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

Close to freeway, some noise. Paved roads and gravel sites. Roads could be tight for big rigs. Some sites have steep entrance or exit, park built on side of hill. Power, water, and cell signal (AT&T) good. We would camp here again. We camped at Aquia Pines Camp Resort in a Motorhome.

We were only staying overnight (40' rig and toad) so the pull through site we were given did not have any tree cover. However, the campground had plenty of trees. The roads and sites are crushed rock. The sites are fairly close but they do have picnic tables. We camped at Aquia Pines Camp Resort in a Motorhome.

Interstate 95, Exit 143. Located about 40 miles from Arlington National Cemetery and Washington, D.C. This is an excellent location to see all the sights. Many restaurants and shopping very nearby. Nice park and can accommodate a big rig. Gravel sites and gravel interior roads. The site layout can be confusing so I would not suggest arriving after dark. Nothing fancy but clean and well maintained. Good power and water pressure. We camped at Aquia Pines Camp Resort in a Motorhome.

This camp ground is not a "resort!". Gravel pads, no concrete. Picnic table was dirty but we took care of that. It is very basic campground with a basic pool. Employee was not friendly. We would never stay here again and actually left early. Cable TV reception was very poor. Location is directly on a very loud highway so there was noise all night. We were close to groceries, dining and historical sites such as Fredericksburg. We camped at Aquia Pines Camp Resort in a Motorhome.

Noise from interstate. Sites are confusing, but owner brings you to site. Staff is friendly. Sites a little cramped, but seems the norm around this area for private campgrounds. A little pricey, but it is a good spot for exploring this area of Virginia. Would stay again. We camped at Aquia Pines Camp Resort in a Fifth Wheel.
