This campground is close to the highway so expect some road noise. There was construction going on out towards the highway so we heard a lot of that also. The people working there are real nice and eager to help with directions or town info. The Wi-Fi was not good out in the camping area so we had to go sit up close to the main building. The roads inside the campground must have experienced a big rain storm as the ruts were hard to maneuver without a big jolt. We had to attach our tow car out at a nearby gas station because of the ruts. I would probably not stay here again due to the road conditions in the park.
We paid for two nights but only stayed one. The pool and hot tub looked like they needed some attention so we stayed clear of those. The washer and dryers were a good deal. The over-rated Wi-Fi connections only worked if you are close to the main building. They have three hot spots but we could not get a good signal at any of them from our slot of the parking lot. I would camp at a truck stop next time than waste money staying here again. The sites are closer than parking in the Walmart parking lot. One other note: some poor guy in a class A came in and got to close to one of the few trees they have and it tore off part of his top railing! (they need to trim the trees).
Campground loop B was a little worrisome getting to in a 32 foot RV because the roads are tight and have hairpin turns. I disconnected the tow car and had it driven ahead of our motorhome so I could be informed of any cars ahead. Once into the loop it was tight maneuvering again. We did get a site right next to a stream that made it all worth it. Unfortunately, a camper at the end of the loop had two dogs that they let roam the campground and no one cleaned up after them! Other than that it was very peaceful and I would camp there again.
The last two reviews really cover it pretty well. We camped here due to the RV Park reviews and we were not disappointed. Close to many National Parks and when we got back from a long day of hiking we could relax in the hot tub or play putt-putt golf! We extended our stay here with no problems, there is just so much to do here! Our site required some levelers.
This was a great find on our trip across country. The sign said the campground was full but we drove up by chance someone canceled their reservation. We got lucky. The park has a few pull through sites and only a few looked level (we had to use two levelers on our site). The site had plenty of space to spread out and the tables are sheltered with a night light. The best thing we liked was viewing the milky way at night, it was so clear. I have never camped at a campground a quite as this one was (very refreshing after a few nights in rest areas and parking lots). You will need to bring your own water. All campsites have electric. There is a dump station. For $20 a night this was a great campground.. We would camp here again,
Nice and quiet at night. Had good laundry service. Swimming pool was open. Overall it was a good stay with some nice hiking trails. It was close to the Creation Museum. Taking the back roads we discovered the small town of Rabbit Hash.
The site we had has full hookups and cable TV. The RR's are new so this was a big plus. Nice laundry facilities. Located 1.5 miles from the North entrance to Yellowstone. This was a great base camp for exploring all of Yellowstone. We stayed for 3 nights. Called them from the highway about 2 hours out and they were able to get us a good site. Sites are very well maintained. I would camp here again.
We went to this campsite to learn more about the Little House on the Prairie and it was not disappointing. The owners are very knowledgeable about the history of the Ingalls Homestead. They have lots of activities for the kids. There are 4 campsites and only Gray water dump station. It was very peaceful at night and would stay here again.
Sites were very nice, trails were in very good shape considering the recent hurricane. Park was patrolled regularly. Staff was helpful and friendly. For the surrounding area being so close to DC and Waldorf, it was quiet. Stayed over the weekend when the leaves where just changing colors. Will revisit.
I have camped at this campground for the past 5 years and each year I have always wanted to stay an extra week because it was so nice. This year however I noticed deteriorating playground equipment on several of the small playgrounds throughout the park. Many of the picnic tables needed to be repaired or replaced. Also, several fire pits were broken and unusable for cooking. The men’s bathroom showers on our loop had tiles that were missing or loose. Also, there was no hot water in the woman’s restroom deep sink. During the week it was very peaceful and relaxing, with other campers adhering to park rules. However, during the weekend we had some noisy neighbors who were checking in late, well past the quiet hours that are from 9 pm to 8 am. They made unnecessary noise while setting up camp. Even though the park rangers came and spoke to them to ask them to quiet down, the rangers made it seem that the campers should be expected to make such noise while setting up, even at 11:30 pm. We will definitely camp in a different loop next time to see if that makes a difference.
We camped in the Dogwood loop because it allows pets. The sites were all very clean and the crushed gravel was raked out and the fire pit was cleaned out. We backed into the site and found there was no electric on this loop but since we had our dog we had to make the best of it. The restrooms were very clean and even had soap to wash your hands with at the sink! We took our bikes but the hills are pretty steep. Up in the far corner of the Dogwood loop is a play field with volleyball, badmitten, soccer, frisbee, and a picnic area. There are lots of hiking trails and a lake for swimming. The loud speakers at the lake were kind of comical and annoying. If you go on the weekend you need to be at the lake very early to get a table. This was our second time camping here and I'm sure we will be back.
We camped for the weekend. It was a quiet campground. The bathrooms were clean, spacious and well lit, though there were many stinkbugs in there one afternoon. The playground was only a swing set located in the tent camping area. There is one full-hookup site, but it was taken when we got there. We would camp there again. It is close to the Western MD Rail Trail and the C & O Canal for bike riding. Downtown Frederick is also close by and a nice place to walk around.
Camped 14th - 16th of May. The weather was perfect. Bugs were hard to find. Showers and bath house were clean in section B. Campground host was very friendly. The DNR personnel made rounds on foot, in car, and ATV. This was our first time here and it was very pleasant. There seemed to be about 100 kids which was good for our kids to play with. The Frisbee golf courses were not groomed so we were not able to play. We did not bring our bikes and that was a big mistake. BRING YOU BIKE! We had great camping neighbors. We will make another trip later this year.
I booked and paid for a premium site Dec 26 - 31 2009 and when I got there they put us in a tent site. I called the front office and they said sorry that's all we have available. Disconnected my trailer and drove to the office and we got another site that had electric, water, and sewer. We were not offered any refund. We had to call guest services due to neighbors breaking quite hours in which at 2 am they finally went to bed. I will never take my family to this campground again. For the amount of money spent I felt like I could never relax in order to get my monies worth. We stayed up the road for $19 a night and had a more enjoyable time.
The campground was very well kept. It was very quite at night and the local sheriff patrolled the grounds. The drive in was not as bad as others made it out to be (I've been through worse). The park rangers were very nice and helpful.
Bullrun park has lots of fun stuff to do there hiking, biking, swimming, water park, 18 hole Frisbee golf and playgrounds. The park is well maintained. The only disadvantages are the firing range close by and the airplanes landing at Dulles airport. But being this close to the big city these are to be expected. We have camped here several times and will return.
We camped at this Jellystone the week following Labor Day Weekend in September. Our major complaint was the golf cart mania. Most campers were driving golf carts around the campground in excess of the posted speed limits, and many times younger children were behind the wheel, despite the rules disallowing this. We did not feel safe allowing our children to go across to the playground for fear they would be hit by golf carts. The quiet hours (11pm) seemed a bit late for our family. There was a DJ from 9:00 PM till 11:00PM with unavoidable music blasting throughout the campground. There is a put-put golf course that was in disrepair and when we were there, most of the fairways were covered with leaves. In addition, the showers in the bathhouse on our loop cost $.25 per 5 min. The one thing that we did enjoy was the new pool, that, during the week we were allowed to use anytime. Overall I would not recommend this campground unless you like the party atmosphere with kids involved.
