Campground Reviews

Aug 21, 2016
Very nice staff . The only issue we had was we had a tent sight right at the entrance and exit . While it's great that it was close to the playground at night with the late campers coming in and out it had more traffic pass by than the rest

We had a great stay! The staff was friendly and helpful. Everything was nice and clean and our kids loved the pool and the jumping pillow! The cabins were very comfortable to stay in with our four children. Kudos to Capitol KOA on an excellent job.

First day no hot water in shower. Very little gravel in sites, very muddy when rains.

Our stay was great! Employees were super. Cabin was clean. Kids loved the bouncy pillow and the rent-able bikes. Pool was a nice reprieve from the heat. Ice cream social was delicious and the kids craft and activity on the weekend was super fun!

The front desk rarely answers their phone and they are rude when they do. The showers are being cleaned during prime morning hours.The sweat bees on our campsite were beyond unbearable. The lifeguard was asleep on duty. Our first stay with this campground in July was a delight. This stay left a bad taste in my mouth. I plan to contact the owner.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We have two bath houses. One is open all the time during cleaning. As you can see in our other surveys our staff is known to be friendly. We sell insect control in our store. Have not heard anything bad about any of the lifeguards who are contracted out. Wouldn't you come in and say something?

Campground was nice however pool was closed for a few hours during extremely hot days.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thank you for responding to the survey. With the extreme heat last week the pool company had to adjust pool chemicals. They follow the guidelines set by the township. The health and safety of our campers is top priority .

Our requests were fulfilled, though our campsite was very close to an ant pile, nothing a little Off spray around our tent couldn't keep away. The Wash,DC bus ride is the way to go and very helpful with the maps and advice of the many museums there. The facilities were clean and the staff was very hospitable. Though close to the freeway it was very quiet on site. Overall our stay was enjoyable!

Very convenient location for visiting Washington. The availability of the shuttle bus was a big plus. The operators very polite, courteous and knowledgable of the area. Will recommend without hesitation.

very quiet, very clean. close to DC, Baltimore, Annapolis. TV reception is poor but not a big issue.
Aug 17, 2016
Nice KOA good location near DC. A little pricey but like I said, its near DC.
Aug 17, 2016
Very nice cabin Had to pay for sheets and towels.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thank you for filling out the survey. We want to clarify that basic cabins do not come with linens. It is a extra service we provide at campers request. We use an outside laundry service. The price we charge covers the cleaning. However our deluxe cabins have full linen service included.

Excellent customer service and we enjoyed our short stay very much. Thanks Judy Hill

The park is nicely secluded off the main highways but convenient to access. KOA store is well stocked. Restrooms/showers were spotless!!! Laundry was a treat and cheaper than most places (surprise). We had a deluxe site with a cement patio, table and 4 chairs, gas grill (clean), and 2 Anirondack chairs with a fire pit. It was lovely. Staff is so friendly and helpful!

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thank you for taking the time to post regarding your recent stay. Thank you for all the great comments. Our staff works hard everyday making it Great for our guests. Yes campers love our New Patio sites. Come back again soon.

Our cabin seemed brand-new and was very clean. Loved that the linens were bagged and unstained. Pocket doors on the bedrooms were perfect. The bunk room had no AC unit, but other than that, it was perfect.
Aug 15, 2016
Wonderful campground with large sites compared to other KOAs. Clean showers and nice laundry. Pool was nice too.
Aug 15, 2016
Great location between Washington DC, Annapolis, Chesapeake Bay. Something for everyone.

This was our 2nd stay at this KOA (last stayed June 2015). Cabins are well-maintained and clean. The 1 room with extended porch cabins are well-situated near woods. Mosquito population was lower than expected. nice staff. Nice restrooms in satellite bldg Biggest complaints: nature trail is poorly kept and barely marked, spotty wifi, cabins could use mini fridge (like similar cabins at jellystone

This is a very small campground. It's clean, but sites are very small. The pool is very small and is really crowded. The bounce pillow is pretty neat, but that's about 15 minutes of entertainment for a kid.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

The kids here love the bounce pillow. They play on it numerous times a day. Other then the pool it is a top favorite. The pool was a very popular place last week because of the extreme heat. Hint of the day first thing in the morning its less crowded.
Aug 15, 2016
There are only a few concrete pads which are unavailable to normal campers like myself, the shuttles are extremely hot, the air-conditioners do you not cool off the shuttles enough. On a positive note the staff was friendly.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Our patio sites are available to everyone. On a first come first serve basis. They are very popular so they go first. Lots of repeat campers request them because they are awesome! The heat index was 106 degrees all last week. We did supply ice cold water complimentary for returning shuttle guests.

Enjoyed the outdoors and pool and lake but ALL of the bathrooms and showers are not just out dated but in really bad shape. They are also not air conditioned or ventilated well. Discolored, rust, cracking, and clogged drains in all locations at this camp. I was really bummed but I know that KOA just bought out this RV park in April 2016 and I'm hoping these bathrooms are next on their remodel list

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

This review is not our park. We do not have a lake and the park was bought in 2007.

short and sweet, very nice, quiet. Only problem was office closed before we could get a souvenir.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Sorry you didn't get your souvenir we are open from 8:00 am to 10 pm. Yes we have a quiet relaxing campground.

Stayed in a deluxe cabin for a girls only getaway! Had a great time. Everyone was very friendly and helpful. Enjoyed the bouncing pillow and the pool.
Aug 11, 2016
We stayed in a little cabin and the guy who escorted us there was really nice and helpful. The pool was fun. The washrooms were hard to access because we had to walk all the way around the RVs and at night it was just too long.
Aug 10, 2016
Very nice. 3rd time that we stayed there. well run, & very clean.
Aug 10, 2016
Not what I expected. Area was really exposed in other words I thought we'd be camping in a secluded area but I was literally only feet away from the check in office. The receptionist however was extremely friendly and accommodated us in our needs.we thought it was pretty cool that they delivered the firewood to our site. The only real down fall was that we kept getting attacked by wasps.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thank you for completing the survey. When available we could move you to a site in the lower section. We are proud of our friendly staff. This time of year the bees are out. We do sell insect control products in the General Store. Bugs are part of camping.

We rented a cabin with an extended porch - well worth it! Conveniently located between DC & Baltimore it was an economical way to visit the area. The owners were gracious & accommodating - when I went to the store looking for popcorn and they had none - they gave us a bag from their home to pop! We'd definitely go back!

The campground was clean. The staff was amazing.

The website and reservation says animals allowed but when we got to the cabin there was a posting inside that said "no animals allowed inside cabins." Other than that, this KOA was beautiful and the cabins were tucked I between some nice foliage.

The campground shuttle to DC was great. The new patio sites are really nice they have patio furniture and a gas grill. The swimming pool was a popular place and refreshing after spending the day in DC. The General Store is well stocked and has DC souvenirs. Will return in the Fall for family reunion.

Near DC and all the attractions.

campsite in the wood was uneven. I ask for a shady site, the answer was: the computer does select a site ?!

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

The site this camper was on is a shady site. What the front desk means is the computer picks sites by availability. Capitol KOA Holiday is a very favored park. We always recommend advanced reservations especially during our peak season. Then there is a lot to choose from.

We had a great time. The cabins were very clean!!
Aug 02, 2016
Good location and quieter than I expected being by the freeway On the side of a hill, the sites are terraced and still fairly level. Would stay again. Follow the signs and NOT gps.
Aug 02, 2016
Love staying there. Not far from great dining, D.C. and Baltimore.
Aug 02, 2016
Loved the shaded site in the woods but was disappointed to find out that the "full hookup" site did NOT have cable. "Full Hookup" means ALL hookups not just some!

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

A full hook up site is water, electric, sewer. The sewer is what is considered full hookup. Cable TV can be in some parks that don't have full hookups. It is not part of the definition of full hookup. It is an add on.

Very familiar with KOA campgrounds. Was my first time staying in a two room camping cabin. Spent most of the day in DC via th awesome Shuttle. Came back to my cabin at almost a frigid temperature. Was very refreshing after a very hot day.
Aug 01, 2016
Such an easy way to travel. Our late check-in was handled smoothly and everything was ready. Campground is well maintained and bath house very clean. We would stay again.
