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.

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.

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.

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.

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

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

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.

Wonderful campground with large sites compared to other KOAs. Clean showers and nice laundry. Pool was nice too.
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.

good

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.

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.
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.
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.

Normally it would have been a great day great location. The pool was shut down for more than 24 hours. It was 88 degrees. We had to stay in the motor home. The amenities were great at the campsite. Clean neat well cared for, mowed. The rest room were not airconditioned the humidity could not escape even though there was an exhaust fan. They left the back door open with a fan it was both male/femal

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thank you for taking the time to fill out the survey. The pool was not closed for 24 hours on any day. This past week there were a lot of thunderstorms everyday a few times a day. our restrooms have a separate Mens Room and separate Ladies room. One of our bath houses has single door shower stalls.
Jul 31, 2016
Awesome!! Staff members are great, very friendly. They can take you from the KOA to walk around DC for $13.50 and they pick you up. We will be back here!! Highly recommend.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thank you for commenting on your stay. Especially this hot summer campers are enjoying the shuttle service we provide. We are proud of our friendly staff and will pass on the kind comments. Thanks and come again soon.

Consistently clean restrooms. Great staff. Good communication. Pool run very well and extremely clean.
Jul 26, 2016
Our stay was great. The shuttle to Washington DC was fantastic.
Jul 26, 2016
Our first time, very nice. The shuttle to DC is the best. Not a lot of spaces for the shuttle so reserve early. Would definitely go again. Thanks
Jul 26, 2016
The people were great, they held out med school. The only thing was we hado ask for 50mp but got there they were out. When you make a reservation easy you want what you ask for.
Jul 26, 2016
People were very accommodating facilities clean and neat. Some of the sites could be improved
Jul 25, 2016
Overall our stay was pleasant. The grounds were nice and had a variety of camping selections. Unfortunately, were we stayed the sites were extremely close. The staff in general were accommodating and nice with the exception of the person that check us in. The shuttle was a great feature to have and we used it both days. You will need to get an additional tour package for Washington.
Jul 25, 2016
We had a great time. Nice quiet, clean campground !

Friendly staff, clean campground, but very poor Wi-Fi and NO CABLE! I was amazed at this due to proximity of nation's capitol! Shuttles to and from Washington had little to no air-conditioning and were uncomfortable - especially for $17.00 fee to travel. No receptacles around campground for dog poop disposal. Enjoyed out stay, but probably wouldn't return here.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We are responding to the survey and want to clarify a few things. We have dog waste receptacles in the dog park. We also sell inexpensive bags in the store. The shuttle buses are air conditioned however with 100 plus degrees on sunny afternoons its a challenge. We also provide free ice water on bus.
Jul 25, 2016
Nice campground with very clean facilities and friendly staff. The rules were a little tight however. We appreciate and understand the need for oversight, but our kids were hesitant to open up because they were watched very closely - lifeguard at pool and especially at the jumping pillow. This is the highlight at KOAs for our children and they went once. Need more activities as well.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Our lifeguards are contracted out and we are happy to hear they are doing their job well. Pool safety is very important to all of us. The jumping pillow is manned by our staff. I am also glad to hear they are doing their job well. We do lots of activities on the weekends. Lots to do here outside.
Jul 25, 2016
The campground was well kept up. But the sites were very small an crammed together. My son had very little room to play outside of our motorhome. An they are so close together that you feel like your neighbors are on vacation with you camping. So we went out to do things or stayed in the motorhome. The camp store is also very over priced. 2 Popsicles an 2 cups of ice cream was over 19 dollars.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We have many ammenities for children playground, jumping pillow, outdoor movies, outdoor games, crafts, swimming pool lots for kids to do. Our camp store is comparable to the area. We sell premium ice cream pints not cups. Our store pricing is cheaper then downtown DC.
