Turns are very tight. If you're a MH towing, disconnect in their very large parking lot. Sites are all on a hill but so is the entire state. The utility side of the site has very large rail ties which can make it difficult to open basement doors for hook up. The cable connection ended in a male plug which required a male-to-male connector. Luckily, an employee was passing by and got one from another site. Overall the individual sites are lacking maintenance. Wi-if was very slow and required repeated sign on. - Rd yacht

Over priced for what you get. It's not worth it. No escort, tight turn getting into site and worst getting out. Luckily no vehicles were parked in the way. What once was narrow asphalt drive is now crumbling rocks. Had to turn sharp by a power pole to exit, not easy with 39 ft. 5th wheel. First stay here was in 2011. No improvements at all. Wi-fi was bad, cable was as bad this time as before. Do not intend to stay here again. Three strikes and you're out. Stayed three times and that's enough. - OKeadle

As with most KOAs, the sites were tight and the roads and sites were gravel. We had a great site with a bit more room than many, but most were fairly close to each other. The employees were very helpful, and there are a TON of activities for the kids at this campground -- more than the other KOAs I've visited. The camp store was very large and very well stocked. We enjoyed the movie theater during a summer downpour, and (while it needed some repairs) the mini-golf was great. The pool was good sized but could use some work, and it would be great if a lifeguard was on duty. We witnessed multiple kids breaking pool rules and endangering themselves and others, and unfortunately their parents weren't doing anything about it. We camped with friends who used a cabin in the back of the park. While the cabin itself was acceptable, the road down to it was in horrible shape with large ruts. Roads in the campground were, as a rule, very tight. Despite these points, however, we had a very nice time and would definitely stay there again if we're in the area. - SteveMM

Streets through town to get to park are very narrow. After you cross railroad tracks, be ready for a really dusty potholed road to campground. Check in was weird - we were given orange bands to display so staff could know we weren't "squatters". Finally got to "campsite" to find electrical and water hookups were at least 50 feet away. Campsite was on the edge of potential water hole if it rained any at all. Tried to get a refund as we decided we were NOT going to stay. Were told refunds had to be approved through general manager at main off-site office. Called and of course he had just left office for the day. We left to find something else. Refund was finally approved 3 days later. All we can really say is: JUST DON'T EVEN THINK ABOUT GOING HERE unless you see it first. Best thing that can be said is that the campground is on the Potomac River. - gwvwadc

My husband and I had planned to stay here for our first overnight stay in our new 26' TT. The drive to the campground was the first issue we ran across. The roads through town to get to the campground were very narrow and it was hard to make turns at stop lights without running up over curbs. Once we got through town and over the railroad tracks, we went down a very narrow gravel road, pass the sewage treatment plant and arrived at the campground entrance. I will say the lot we attempted to setup at had a very nice view overlooking the river. However, it was an extremely unlevel lot and we did not have very good success trying to setup the camper. After ruining one of our stabilizer jacks, we decided to pack up and go down the road to a different campground. - HappyCampers508

The road to the campground is narrow as everyone has said. The sites are on grass, very little shade. Some are pull through & some are back ins. The utility pole is far but if we pulled up, we'd be too close to the road. The road inside campground is very bumpy. Only one bathhouse, not convenient for everyone. Port a potties around though. The sites are long but neighbors are close by. Fire rings & picnic table. Playground & volleyball net. Hiking, biking trails. OTA TV local channels. Dump site use inconvenient. - jcpjane

This campground is basically an open field, but a very nice open field at that. Sites were grassy but on a slight slope. Roads were gravel. There are no bathrooms, picnic tables or fire rings. It is a no-frills kind of place, good for an overnight stay but not all that convenient being 4 miles or so from Interstate 81. I did appreciate the spacious, open sites and the price is right. - The 3 Blands

Arrived and went to office but no one there. The male owner walked over and waved us over to the camping area. Unknown to us, his daughter who manages it had left a phone message with our site number, but not hearing the message or seeing a site flyer on the office wall, we just chose our site and set up. My mistake. Fortunately we did not have to move. So check your phone as you drive in to see where you are supposed to be. Also, watch your voltages- we saw some large differences between L1 vs L2 and our power management system protected us 3 times. I shared that observation with the manager. - cherib

This is a Dr. Jekyll / Mr. Hyde experience. Even with the cons we'll stay again because it's what we need where we need it. Pros: Exactly right for a quick one night stop. Reasonable rate. Close to 81. *In general* the grounds were mowed and tidy, and wide open (it's a field), not crowded. Full hookups. There's actually a long (town) greenway accessible from the front of this campground which was a pleasant surprise. Easy in and out (whole site is spacious and flat). Cons: There's a junky area (literal junk) right when you come in. Don't know what that's about. And it's contained to that spot. But besides being aesthetically bothersome it didn't actually affect what we were there for. No shade. The water valve leaked at our particular spot so we turned it on/off as we used it. Not ideal but not unusable either. Management isn't actually in the little office. But if you call or email you can make contact. - SitStay

We were the only vehicle being used. There were a number of abandoned trailers. The swimming at the river was closed and is a hike away from the park. The advertised "museum" is run down and with unused equipment around. The caretaker was helpful. Would not recommend. - User2759

Nice person at check-in, however my site was difficult to get in to, rough, uneven, etc. I knew this place would NOT be to my liking the moment I parked. Across the small stream, there were 2 - 3 groups of men standing around with music playing loudly, all drinking beer and staring at us. I called office later early evening re: the wi-fi, and got a recording. Hoped someone would be there later on, after 10:00 when the noise (loud talking, laughing, loud music) continued...no answer, no one came around to check on the CG..noise and disruption continued until 1:00 am or later...VERY IRRITATING. I never went to the bathroom or shower, as the path leading up to them was rocky, steep and uneven..I had just had knee surgery, and couldn't do the uphill climb on such a treacherous path. It didn't look too appealing anyway. NEVER WILL STAY HERE AGAIN! - NFRS

We were on our way home after a five week trip to the Great Lakes and didn't realize it was Memorial weekend. Could not find anywhere to stay, but luckily, the policy of this place does not take advance reservations, so we called the day we planned to arrive and they were able to accommodate us for two nights. The site we were assigned was right by the busy road and was down in a grassy gully by a little stream that looked scary and pretty muddy with all the rain, but we were able to just barely get our trailer situated around the trees. We got mud all over our truck and trailer when leaving the next day as it rained overnight and made the site even muddier. These sites could stand to have some gravel added to keep the mud down. The water did not work at our site, but we still had water on board and were only there for two nights so it wasn't a problem. We did have good wi-fi here and AT&T cell service. I don't think the sites down by the little creek in the front had cable hookups, but we didn't need any as we rarely watch TV while camping. The road noise was loud all day and night, but we ran our fans and put in ear plugs at night, so we were able to get a good night's sleep. Looks like most of the campground is occupied by full timers living there, but was not a problem. We would stay here again for an overnight or two if in the area, but would hope to get a site away from the road. Also, with no sewer at our site, we weren't able to dump as they don't have a sanitary dump station, so this was not good for more than a couple of days. - LZee11

One night's stay. It was stormy, but quiet in the park for an excellent night's sleep. Staff was very polite and helpful. The road behind the building down to our campsite#2 looked intimidating but worked out just fine. We weren't comfortable pulling our 40' Class A into the spot, but it was easy enough to back in. No reservations! Made us nervous, but they appear Abe to accommodate anyone who shows up. No fancy amenities, wouldn't want to stay long term. - Gurleymon

The park is easy to access from main roads and interstate but far enough back that the only "road noise" is a racetrack/drag strip that is near-by. As you enter the park, there is a convenient park station that you have to pass to check-in; parking lot can easily accommodate 4-5 large RVs plus vehicles. Campground has limited access with gate and keypad; it is fairly narrow and oversized RVs may be challenged. Dump station is on left as you access to fill up with water since only electric is available. Sites are then easy to access with well maintained, paved roads. There are 3-4 ring-roads that are alphabetical but named (Ash, Birch, Cedar, etc). Sites are easy to access although different sizes. Most are on the side of the sloped hill and at different elevations. All have covered by trees and many large rigs came in. Some sites have sloped driveways although the sites are fairly level (ours required 2 blocks on the right side that you couldn't tell by looking at it). Very quiet. Bath houses are centrally located but we did not use. Water points are throughout the ring road. Ring roads are curvy and long travel trailers would need to go slow; 35 and below probably no problems (at least on Cedar). We stayed in a 25' Travel Trailer. - Next Mission

Site was partially shaded, more private than many others in the loop, but still not very secluded. Nice and level. Hardly any space between sites. Definitely the tightest MD state park we've camped at by far. Luckily, we were there during the week, so it was not crowded at all, and reasonably quiet. Had we been there on a weekend, I can only imagine that the crowds and noise would have driven me crazy.
Facilities/Overall Park: Bath house was fine; very average as far as bugs and cleanliness. Only 2 or 3 shower stalls, IIRC; never a wait while we were there, but I imagine the lines are long on weekends. There was a relatively easy hiking trail from the campground down around the lake, with some nice, quiet little spots for fishing. To get to the sandy beach area of the lake, we drove, since we had 3 kids and a ton of crap to transport. The lake area is very nice, with tons of picnic spots in the shade. However, every single picnic table was in use, and the beach was pretty crowded, and we were there on a Wednesday! I can only imagine how packed it would be on a weekend. Despite the moderate crowds, we really enjoyed ourselves, and I think I liked it even better than the lake area at Cunningham Falls. - Jenventola

Great state owned campgrouond. Easy to get to from the Interstate.
We stayed in Cedar Loop which is the only loop with electric.
All back in sites. No water hook ups, no over the air TV.
The best part about camping here were the campground's hosts who were parked next to us.
They quickly solved an issue with another camper who was in our assigned site. Then they helped us with good suggestions on avoiding the beltway around Washington, DC. Lastly, they came over with freshly baked banana chocolate chip muffins!
We would definitely stay here again. - thetravelkids

Ok this place is seriously under rated! When I arrived earlier than the 3pm check in time I was charged an EARLY Check In Fee...which I reluctantly paid. Once I drove through the park to my site I was very surprised at the layout, the cleanliness and helpfulness of the staff. This campground had as much or as little as you or your family wanted to do from the choice of 2 pools, a water park, zip lining, a FULLY stocked and reasonably priced camp store plus lots of interaction with Yogi, Boo Boo and Ranger Rick. We will defimetly come back here again and I will read the fine print in the reservation agreement especially when it comes to early check in. - ETCTA

When we moved a reservation from summer to fall because of a dangerous summer storm on check-in day, the front desk assured us that they won't charge us a fee because of the storm. Alas when fall arrived, their management team decided that the front desk was wrong to not follow policy and charged us $94. Our friend was charged $134. This management decision to charge us after our agreement with the front desk, is why this campground deserves a rating of 1 for now. That said, the campground has many activities like laser tag, water slides, pools, ninja warrior course, etc. The pull-through sites in the 700s section are not level, front tires of DP are lifted off the ground by levelers. Dog park is nice sized with green lawn. Wifi worked well on iPad, not PC laptop. Att signal good. Front desk never picks up phone, you leave vm, they call back whenever hours later. The pool and water slides are clean. Cigarette buttes in fire ring. Dog waste bags provided are excellent quality. They pick up garbage from sites, signage around park very good. - univmd

Used it as an overnight stay because the last time in this area we stayed at another campground - a big mistake. The entrance into this park is unnecessarily tight taking you around trees and rocks. We showed up at 2:00 and were told rather abruptly that check in wasn't until 3:00 but they would check to see if our site was ready. Once they confirmed that it was, we were escorted to our site which was in an area of at least 80% empty sites. The young man that escorted us directed me into the site and told me when to stop. He was ready to depart when I had to ask him how I was supposed to get out of our motorhome. When he asked what I was talking about, I pointed out the very large bush that was completely blocking our door. The site was level and hookups were easy. You are supposed to wear hospital-style wristbands in order to walk around the campground - we didn't and weren't prevented from buying ice cream at the store which had only a few choices since their freezers were out of order. After searching forever for a dumpster, I learned that they pickup trash at your website, although they didn't tell me that at check-in or in the literature. WI-FI was slow even with so few sites in the area occupied. - Rd yacht

We stayed at this campground for an overnight stop on our way home. The campground is located in a forest, with paved roads and gravel sites. Sites are large, well separated, shaded, and private. RV/trailer sites have electric hook-up only. Water is available at a number of locations in the campground. OTA TV is limited, Verizon signal is good, and there is no WiFi. Restrooms and showers are clean and well maintained. There is no traffic noise. A dump station is located near the campground entrance. We would stay here again. - tnyankee

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

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
