The stay was okay. My problem was that I was charged 10.00 for a guaranteed lot. I asked if I could get a private lot and requested 2 different areas. I was never told nor did I see anything in writing that I would be charged. When I asked the man at the front desk, he just said it's the policy, but could not show 4me where it was written down. I was Not a happy camper.

Good experience overall. Would go back.
Nov 03, 2016
Everything was great. The only thing that could use improvement was the attitude of employees working at the camp store. They seemed bothered when asked questions about the activities going on the weekend our family stayed.

Had a great Halloween experience. Kids want to come back next year. Told a few friends and they may join us as well next year.

We have a 6 year old, 13 year old, 15 year old and all three kids had a blast!

We are glad your children enjoyed their stay. KOA is about helping families build great memories. Our Halloween weekends are super special. Come back again soon.

The office staff is usually so friendly...that was not the case this time.

Great for location and well run. Our site was very cramped and no where close to level. You have to drive over curbs they have installed to control drainage and we damaged one of our breakaway chains. Even though we signed waiver that sites were short and tow vehicles had to be parked elsewhere, there were TVs parked all over the roads.

Great stay since it was close to the Renfest but the site that we stay at(37) was the same site we had last year and I could not the nights since I light a fire when my camper was to close to the ring. I hope to stay there next year for Renfest but it takes a little coordinating with the others that we are camping with. Please do not put us on that site again.

A good suggestion is to book a favored site early. Then ask for a site guarantee and you will get your favored site. Capitol KOA repeat campers do this often as they return year after year.

Always have fun,will be back often.

Thoroughly enjoyed our first time at Capitol KOA!! Had a blast decorating our site for Halloween!!
Nov 01, 2016
We thought it was hard to find, but once we got there, we had a good time.
Nov 01, 2016
Great time, but I was charged a fee for making my reservation early. I forget what you called it but it was stupid since I made the reservations last year. It was only 10 dollars but you should not change more for reservations made a year in advance!

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We have a site guarantee which is 10.00. You get to pick your site and are guaranteed to get the favored site you have requested. Campers like to be assured they will get their favorite site. Capitol KOA is a very favored park for Special Event Weekends.

We had a great time camping at the KOA and the kids all really enjoyed all the Halloween festivities! They also couldn't get enough of the jump pillow. Taking away one star because our site was right by the dumpsters and the VERY LOUD trash truck came beeping and banging before the sun was even up - waking up our daughters much too early which made for a very long day for everyone.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We are glad you had a great time with our Halloween festivities. We apologize for the early trash pickup in the morning. We unfortunately are on their schedule of area pickup. We have tried in vain to resolve this.

This site was only 3 stars and was also the most expensive we visited during the last two months of travel. I know DC and MD are expensive all around, but still?? Give us a break.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We are reasonably priced for the area and competitive for the area. it is good to purchase a KOA Value card you save 10% on every stay. We are a vacation destination. There is camping and then there is KOA.

Everything was perfect

Came for Halloween weekend. Mad reservation last year at $70/night pull thru full hookups. Was charged $82/night. Excuse given by staff "Sir prices go up every year". Was not able to pull thru, staff member even told me it was a back in. Website shows site price at $68/night. Someone made some money! 1 vehicle per site rule. most had 2-4.
Oct 31, 2016
Beautiful campsite. Would definitely want to return. Great staff!
Oct 31, 2016
Small cafe miniature golf would be nice
Oct 31, 2016
Front desk check in person. She is not very friendly, questioned everything we inquired about and made it seem as she didn't want to be there.

This was our first camping trip in our new pop up and it couldn't of went better. The staff was very kind and friendly. The Halloween activities, playground and the giant pillow kept our child entertained the entire weekend. We enjoyed trick or treating at KOA more than at our home. We are definitely making this a yearly tradition.

Oct 31, 2016
we enjoyed are stay very much great for are grandson. Thanks

Have stayed at KOA before & everyone has been respectful of the rules, except this stay. Our neighbors were up to 2am from the Halloween events. We didn't get any sleep, had to be up early for tournament with our son and pack up to also drive back to FL. Called to to notify the KOA directors on site & they really didn't care. The broucher clearly states quiet time 10pm to 8am ENFORCED! NOT!!!
Oct 31, 2016
Very nice Campground, a little noisy from highway near by. But the people were great and the facility had all kinds of fun stuff for the kids.
Oct 28, 2016
It was a great time. The office personal could have been more nice. I heard from a few campers that they were only aloud 1 parking pass. This didn't make sense to me since they charge extra from more passes why they would not allow them an additional pass. If the office lady was a little more friendly that would have made the stay that much better.
Oct 28, 2016
had recycling. A big plus and so rare. It is disgusting that you don't make it compulsory
Oct 27, 2016
Perfect!
Oct 27, 2016
The cabin was very nice. The kids enjoyed the bunk beds. Lots of activities for them as well.
Oct 26, 2016
Love it here. The kids are entertained. Halloween is so much fun!

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thank you for responding to our survey! We did have a awesome fun filled first Halloween Weekend. And we get to do it all over again this weekend! Kids costumes were so original and inventive.
Oct 26, 2016
Campgrounds were awesome! The cabin was very smelly... like mildew. Staff was wonderful and we had fun with all of the events!
Oct 26, 2016
Great location, bathrooms were clean and smelled good.
Oct 25, 2016
Loved it. We have already made plans to return.
Oct 25, 2016
Very nice campground, except for the disappointing fact that there was no cable tv.
Oct 25, 2016
We have been staying at Kapital KOA for the past 4 yrs and we always have a wonderful time.The campground is clean and the staff is friendly and helpful. We would totally recommend it to everyone and we are looking forward to our stay next year!

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thank you for your compliments about the Special Event Halloween Weekends. I think the staff had as much fun as the campers did. We were near full to capacity. We got so many comments of what a great time they had. See you next year!
Oct 24, 2016
A wonderful place to come to celebrated the season with family... the parents feel confident that it is a safe environment for children at Halloween.. great activities too! Well done KOA!
Oct 24, 2016
Family friendly environment. A lot of activities included in your stay. Campsite was a perfect location. Fire pit and picnic tables on your own site.
Oct 24, 2016
We come every year for the Halloween weekend and it would be nice to see some "new" activities for those that come on a yearly bases. I know this year there was the inflatable that the kids enjoyed. Nice to see something "new" for them.
Oct 24, 2016
Weekend stay to visit with some family there.
Oct 24, 2016
Clean restrooms, friendly staff & great activities for kids.
Oct 24, 2016
They provided a lot of fun activities for kids at no extra charge. Loved that. Signs staTed no outside guests. We always have my brother join us for Halloween camping. If this is to be the rule, it needs to be stated when we register. I was thinking there would be a fee and I was fine with that. They did allow him to come, but please be up front with rules ahead of time. My camper sleeps 10.
Oct 24, 2016
Always a great place to stay. The staff works very hard to make us have a wonderful stay. Everything clean and well taken care of!
Oct 24, 2016
Great time! Enjoyed the fun Halloween activities!
Oct 24, 2016
Beautiful location very convenient to Washington DC, nice staff, great showers
Oct 24, 2016
I am having a hard time rating this campground. Everyone that works there was extremely nice and things were clean but the rv beside us was loud well past 1 am. With kids that is not something we can over look.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Looking up this camper's location there are no rvs next to them. ? However there are after hours numbers posted around the campground. Management lives on property and will come out to resolve a noise issue.
Oct 24, 2016
I had a great weekend. We come to this campground every year at Halloween. This year, the campground is under new management. I think they are excellent managers. They were friendly and very approachable. The staff was excellent as well. I look forward to coming back next year at Halloween! Thanks for a great weekend! :)

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

This family had the funniest decorated campsite. Right in theme with the election year. They were also a wonderful family. Look forward to seeing them all next year.
Oct 24, 2016
Our families decided to get together to go camping. One complete family stayed in their camper, another family stayed in 2 tents and my husband and I stayed in a cabin. We all had a great time, so much to do. This was the first experience for our grandchildren and they had a great time. The adults had a great time as well. We certainly would do this again. In planning stages already!

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Families have been coming to Capitol KOA for a long time. It has really gotten to be a family tradition. Campers get to reconnect with family and also make new friends. A lot of campers book for next year before they check out. The weather was shaky but it cleared up and everyone enjoyed their stay.
