Not much to say
Aug 27, 2016
1. needs secure wifi 2. needs cable tv 3. the pool rules are crazy ! the rent-a-lifeguard gets a 15 minute break every hour and the pool has to be emptied while they take a break? I did appreciate the shuttle service to downtown DC. It was quiet at night. the main areas were very clean.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Our wifi is one of the best in the area. The lifeguard must go by our county rules. They have to test the water once an hour. Everyone must be out of the water. It takes 10 minutes. Yes it is a challenge but KOA follows Maryland rules. The lifeguard is not taking a break once an hour.

Right off the bat I wasn't impressed with my check-in. The man wasn't knowledgeable and forget to give me the key to my cabin. I realize he was new but he shouldn't have been left alone. Also upon departing I had to wait until 8 to leave. This messed up my schedule. No one told me that there was a night drop off until I inquired upon leaving at 8.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

This camper was contacted and things were straightened out. Our brochure that we hand out to guests contains information about our park. Including checkout time. Thank you to the camper that commented. We are installing a key drop box for the cabins for early morning departures.

A dumpster pick up is scheduled for pickup 2 days a week at 5:30 AM. It is very loud and goes on for at least 10 minutes. No warning or concern from the staff. No my idea of a relaxing wake-up.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Yes that one is a tough one to address. We live here as well on grounds. It is early because of safety concerns when during the day the park is busy. It is also our waste managements schedule they get to pick the time.

The sewer pipes in the ground are too small to accept standard hoses and the staff seem unconcerned. Their fix was to stack pieces of wood against the pipe to hold it in place. Not acceptable, especially for the price we paid.

It was a great centrally located campground for this stay. Went to DC and Baltimore to watch an Orioles game. The only concern we had was the pool was not open as initially advertised due to school going back and there not being a lifeguard. It did not open until 4:00 pm and there was no mention until after we inquired:

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

There are signs on the pool entrance and also in the store. Our pool service is a outside company. It is mandatory in our county that lifeguards have to be present. The lifeguards are students and we have to go by the pool company schedule. We are open on weekends 10:00 PM to 9:00 through Labor Day.

Check in took about 2 minutes we were staying in a deluxe cabin. It was very clean. Lee and Jill went above and beyond and made you feel like family. Will definitely go back.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thank you for taking the time to do the survey! Yes Lee and Jill are part of our awesome stay! We are lucky to have them. We will pass on your kind comments to them. Come back soon and often.

It was a pleasure staying with you, site's were spacious,restrooms were clean and it was very quiet at night. Thank you for a wonderful stay.
Aug 23, 2016
Loved our time at KOA and will absolutely be back again next year!

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Capitol KOA is a campground people return to time and time again. In a campers words it is a hidden gem in Maryland. See you next year.
Aug 23, 2016
We were pleased with our overnight stay in Maryland KOA. The room was clean and the air conditioner worked great. A television would have made our stay perfect.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Glad you enjoyed your stay. Air conditioning is wonderful especially this hot hot summer. Our deluxe cabins have televisions in them. Perhaps next visit you might like to upgrade to one of them. Campers love them they have a kitchen and a bathroom. Come back soon!
Aug 23, 2016
Upon arriving at the campground I had to wait to check in while one employee was checking another guest in and the other two were engaged in a personal conversation for about 1m30s. The grounds were nicely kept and clean though it seemed nothing was improved upon from our last stay here four years ago. The bathrooms are in need of remodeling although they were kept clean during our stay.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

I suspect you were there during a change of shift. The girls probably were all ready cashed out. Perhaps next time you come you might treat yourself to a new deluxe patio site. Campers have really enjoyed having the cement patio and propane grill and patio furniture.
Aug 23, 2016
It was pleasant & I come often but more features need to be added to the cabins like Televisions & bathrooms because the prices we pay don't offer any other amenities besides an air conditioning unit.Thank you!

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

This camper stayed in one of our basic cabins. We do have deluxe cabins with kitchen, bath and other great amenities. Advice would be book early as those cabins go fast. Thanks to the camper that took the time to comment. Also look for our Hot Deals on our website capitolkoa.com.

I'm a tent camper and the spot that I was assigned was a sand box it rained heavily that night and my tent was covered with sand.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Capitol KOA is on the Eastern shore and it is sandy. Rain does change some campers prospective. Its the sunny days that make camping awesome. During rain we offer cabins to campers when available. A good option when its raining. Campers like the sand surface for their tents.

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.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We are glad you enjoyed your stay! Next time you might to treat yourself to more luxury! Try one of our Deluxe cabins which has bathroom and kitchen and other get amenities our campers love them! Thank you for taking the time to write to us.
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

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

When we have availability we will gladly move you to another site you like better. Capitol KOA is a very popular park. Its never to early to make reservations. Some of our returning guests book a year ahead for desired sites. So book early and come often.
Aug 20, 2016
First day no hot water in shower. Very little gravel in sites, very muddy when rains.
Aug 20, 2016
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!

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thank you for the feedback and we appreciate you taking the time. We are glad you enjoyed your stay. We hear over and over how awesome our staff is . We are quite proud of them. Love seeing families enjoying themselves.

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:

ved. The commenter was contacted. We do have 2 bath houses one is always open. Our staff is mentioned time and time again for being friendly as mentioned in other surveys. The bees are especially active early this year. Exterminator addressed issue.
Aug 18, 2016
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!
Aug 18, 2016
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.
Aug 17, 2016
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.
Aug 17, 2016
Excellent customer service and we enjoyed our short stay very much. Thanks Judy Hill

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We hope you come back again soon. Yes our staff is awesome! Thanks so much for the Great comments I will pass it on to our staff.

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.
Aug 15, 2016
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
Aug 15, 2016
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.
Aug 15, 2016
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.
Aug 11, 2016
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.
Aug 09, 2016
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.
