Nice campground for an overnight stay while traveling through. It's a bit busy getting in and out, as it is co-located with a resort golf course and a new casino. The signage for the campground could be better. Hint: Turn right at the first road off the highway (away from the golf course and casino) and past the park office. The staff was very friendly and helpful, the sites were spacious, level, and private, and the bathroom/shower facilities were clean and well designed. There are trails from the campground suitable for walking the dog. Note that this is a no-alcohol campground, but if you are discreet and act like an adult that should not be a problem.

Nice campground overall, although a little cramped for my taste. The sites were well-leveled and the hookups especially well designed. Friendly, helpful staff, nice camp store, and restaurant. Unfortunately, the restaurant is only open on weekends before Memorial Day and they closed at 3 pm on Sunday, so we did not get a chance to sample the fare. Also note that the office closes at 3 pm on Sunday, so get your firewood early. The showers were clean but especially poorly designed. Very tiny stall and the shower head is mounted way too high with no way to adjust it downward. Bathrooms were clean when we arrived on Sunday, but the ones nearest our site were not cleaned at all on Monday and were noticeably dirty by Tuesday morning, which is really unacceptable. I'm assuming that was just a one-time oversight, because the general condition clearly indicates that they are regularly cleaned. On the plus side, there is a State Park directly across the road with miles of trails, including some paved and graveled rail-trails, so a great place to walk the dog. Lots of family activities, including two large swimming pools and a small amusement park with kiddie rides. We would stay here again.

I really, really wanted to rate this campground higher because the staff was so friendly and accommodating and the bathrooms/showers were so spotlessly clean. But the reality is that it is crowded, noisy, and occupied primarily by seasonal and/or year-round units, many of which are well past their prime. The road noise from Rte 340 was very noticeable, especially in the front of the park. There were nearby trains all night long blowing noisy horns, and on Friday nights you get the special treat of the race cars blasting their engines at the speedway down the road. There is nowhere to walk the dog other than on the roads around the park, which is OK I suppose. The seasonal campers were quite friendly, but some trails through the unused wooded areas would be nice. On the positive side, it is convenient to the Blue Ridge Parkway and Shenandoah National Park, so there are hiking opportunities there if you're willing to drive a bit. The sites were poorly graveled but reasonably level. Barely adequate for an overnight stay, but bring your earplugs.

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.

Stayed here for a night while passing through, and it served well enough for that purpose. There is nothing particularly special about this campground, but the roads and sites are paved and for the most part quite level. The big negative was the restroom facilities. There is only one shower building for the entire campground, and it is in the non-pet loop, so if you're traveling with your pet you are going to have a long walk to take a shower. There are no modern restrooms at all. The vault toilets scattered about the loops are of a rather odd design, with open space at both the top and bottom which allows the wind to freely blow through the stall. Not fun when it's 40 degrees out. Also note that this is a no-alcohol campground, but if you're discreet and act like an adult that should not be a problem.

Generally nice campground in a State Park with lots of family-oriented amenities and activities. Roads are paved. The gravel sites range from open and sunny to shaded with good privacy, and were mostly level. Note that not all loops have electric hookups, so pay attention when choosing your site. Only one modern bathhouse was open this early in the season. The restroom facilities were as clean as could be expected given their age, but the showers were rather grim with lukewarm water at best. The shower curtain appeared to be from last season, which is odd, as you would expect that to be one of the first things they would replace when preparing for the new year. Otherwise, we had a very pleasant, restful stay for one night.
