Many of the sites are very unlevel. Some are level. Have to choose carefully. Recommend choosing your own site for $20 extra. Stay 2 nights get 1 night free deal is nice, although resort fees for 3rd night are not free. Electric at our site was low voltage at our site according to our RV surge protector. But KOA guys said they will only replace breaker if breaker trips since it takes them 45 minutes to replace. - univmd

KOAs are never our first choice, but sometimes they are the only choice for a big rig. This park is no exception. The section for big-rigs is all pull-throughs, with narrow gravel lanes that slope gently downhill, and kind of terraced in steps down the hillside. We were assigned to a level spot at the bottom of the hill - but oh, my oh my, when it rained hard we were awash in mud. The narrow grassy strip alongside the coach was already muddy and straw-covered when we arrived, and it did not improve during our stay. Utilities were OK. Cell phone reception (Verizon) was marginal, but the wifi was OK. An OK park, but way overpriced. Having said all that, we did enjoy visiting Harpers Ferry and Antitam NPs. - MerBee

Not happy about the $10 a day "Resort" fee. They say that's for use of the pool, mini golf, "free" pancake breakfast (coffee not included). Putt Putt golf is run down and needs repairs. Pool was nice but the liner was mushy under your feet in some places. Cable didn't always work. No WiFi, Verizon cell service was ok. Camp store is very nice. Fire rings too close to other rv's, not safe. Too many stumps in camp sites. Lots of uneven sites. Dirt/gravel. - dcr126

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

Come here once or twice a year. Nice little campground, usually pretty quiet besides trains . Focus on the river with kayaking and tubing Small basketball court and playground .Pull through sites plenty long enough for 40 ' travel trailer and truck. Don't agree with earlier statement about dump station, there is a turn around right at dump station but could be confusing if you don't take a second to look at it. Main the road is historical so it can't be paved only maintained. Would recommend to friends. - Zack b

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 bear-bones campground is a multi-acre area in which all kinds of RVs are found, from the newest 45-footer to abandoned, rusty trailers overcome by growth. There are no picnic tables, showers, fire rings or screw threads on the sewer pipes. Water pressure was low. Credit cards are now accepted. - Mtmoi

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

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

There are two areas: a day use lake, picnic area and a camping area. The camping area has 4 loops, only one loop has power (Cedar Loop), this loop is the best geared to RV camping, a big portion of the other loops are for small units and tents. This is not a big rig friendly park. Few sites will accept big rigs. It is clean and well run. Cell service is good TV antenna service is fair. Satellite service is spotty, hour in the mountains. Overall a nice park. We were hosts here for 3 months; hosts have full hookups. We were in a 42' rig. - fulltime5er

They created "red carpet" sites. A couple are nice but I don't think any of them are worthy of the being called red carpet. Yes they are paved, yes they have a grill, but the one I had was small and crammed into the area. We like preferred spots, they are spaced out better however, almost all spots in this area are not level at all. Grass was not cut, weeds growing in gravel. Pool water was filthy. Pool is very small with half of it roped off to be a landing area for water slides. Splash pad area is great for the kids. For the size of this campground, they should really put in another pool besides the small one up front for just swimming. I come her for my granddaughter, otherwise I wouldn't camp here at all. - Pirate

Office is a LONG away from some of the sites, and the escort acted like he was breaking the rules by giving me a ride back to the office to pick up my toad. Didn't think I would like the prefab-looking restrooms, but they were fine. Camp store has very limited hours before Memorial Day. - VA Jim and Barbara

I know this is a family park but in Oct or Nov it is but a piece of ground to stay on the way south. These people raised their rate fro 96 for 3 nights to 138 in a year. There is absolutely nothing going on in this park no amenities other than a site. I've stayed here for the last several years and this is but another thorn in us as RVers. - tomman58

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
