Positives: Our kids love jumping pillow & playground. Negatives: We were woken up repeatedly by smokers. We found it not only disgusting but also worrisome as we have an asthmatic three year old. $50 seems pricey for these relatively small & exposed tent sites. It'd be helpful if pool were open until it's no longer hot--came for pool as it was 100 degrees, but it closed last wknd / Labor Day.

Beautiful campground with friendly staff. Plenty of shaded tent sites and clean facilities.

Staff and facilities are wonderful. Rest rooms and pool very clean. Lifeguards were very good at what they do! The store is extremely well stocked with anything you forgot or need. Many things for kids to do - outside movies and ice cream social was the added bonus to all the amenities. Just a wonderful place for a fun and relaxing getaway!!!

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.

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

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.

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!

Great location between Washington DC, Annapolis, Chesapeake Bay. Something for everyone.
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.
Jul 25, 2016
Our site was covered in bees, but other than that, we had a great time!

There were many fun things to do on our one night stay. The pool was great and the price of the stay was affordable. The only mishap we had was that our site had no room for a six person tent duebtonitnbeing n on a hill. Following a relocation, our spot was nice and flat.

The location worked very well for our family. Our children enjoyed the many activities available to them during our stay.
Jul 16, 2016
The people were very nice and helpful. I loved that they have a shuttle bus into the city that was great and the bathrooms and laundry room were very well taken care of and my kids loved the playground and pool. The only thing I would do different is add a baby changing station in one of the bathrooms. It was hard to change the baby, other than that great people, great place

We had a great time!

Was very nice very friendly and helpful people there very clean and beautiful place. I will come back to Capitol MD campground. Loved that the campground had a bus to Washington D.C. each day for everyone.
Jul 11, 2016
Very nice campground with lots of activities for kids. Wish the tent sites were a little more established. Hard to tell where one starts and ends.
Jul 07, 2016
It's camping. Staff and lifeguards not super friendly and even rude at times. Amenities were great for the kids. Movie was difficult to see and hear. Staff unsympathetic and even laughed when my son's sandals were taken by a neighbor camper. Again, it's camping....not a hotel stay.
Jul 07, 2016
even though it rained for most of our stay, we had a great time. Kids had the opportunity to freely enjoy themselves at the different stations without any problems.
Jul 06, 2016
The amenities were very nice. The sites themselves were very small. Felt like we were all on top of each other.
Jul 05, 2016
Very friendly staff!
Jul 05, 2016
My family really enjoyed it!
Jul 03, 2016
Our stay was great,Quiet and friendly. Our drivers Mike,Dennis and Bob were great driving in that mess, better them than me. That is why I chose your campground. The young man that took my reservation knew his sites for my situation. Thank you for a great week. Betty and John

Very clean. Very nice employees. Will go back.
Jun 27, 2016
My 10yr old and I had a very fun weekend. The bounce pillow was a big hit. The campground was clean, the staff was very kind and helpful. The tent sites on the hill could use some leveling but we managed just fine. Will be visiting again, daughter is already planning our next trip.
Jun 27, 2016
the tent sites with no hook up were confusing where to pitch your tent, sites were small and hilly. But overall the staff was friendly and the facilities were nice. Shuttle to DC was nice a change of not driving into Washington dc,
Jun 26, 2016
It was great. But no way to buy firewood except at camp store. Usually Random people who live near campgrounds sell firewood cheaper along side the road. But not in this area..strange to me. And u cant pick ur site number. Those r my only complaints. Everything else is fantastic

This was our first time staying at a KOA. A few weeks earlier we switched our campsite because we needed an electric with our tent. We made the best of the layout of site 49. Now that we've been there we have an idea of some better sites to request the next time that we want to visit DC. A great campground with friendly staff.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

This is a favored campground with a lot of returning guests. Good insider tip is to pick your favorite site. Then book your favorite site before you leave. Booking early is key to those favored sites. Thank you for the kind comments and we agree. Our staff is awesome!

The restroom was a disaster in the evenings (soap all over the counters, crowded with families). Also, a lot of noise from vehicles driving through the campground well after midnight Friday evening (not to mention the nearby highway). But overall, it is a very nice family atmosphere with pleasant surroundings.
Jun 19, 2016
My son and I needed a quick place to stay in the DC area and you KOA was the perfect fit! My late reservation put me in site 68 which is a little small, but it worked well. The staff was great and very helpful. This is very nice place to stay. Now if I could only get my wife to enjoy camping!
Jun 16, 2016
Toilets need some work, very poor flush power. On busier days, this could be a real problem.
Jun 15, 2016
Clean bathrooms, nice facilities, sites were not very level, all road should be paved to reduce dust.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thank you for taking time to do our survey. We are proud of our staff and our park. It has been very windy and dry so it can get dusty. We are in a sandy area. We suggest to our campers book early for favored sites! Ask about our site guarantee and pick your favorite site for your next stay.
Jun 13, 2016
Jenifer was an excellent customer service rep! Thank you for having us and for the awesome experience camping for a night!
Jun 12, 2016
KOA was recommended to me by a friend and I couldn't be any happier with my stay in KOA Washington. The facilities are clean and well maintained; the staff Helpful, Friendly and Hospitable. I'm looking forward to other future trips to KOA this summer~! And mostly likely for years to come. Thank you!! PS. Water pressure was fantastic!!!

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We are happy you enjoyed your stay. Thanks so much for taking time to complete our survey. Capitol KOA are proud to help our campers build lasting family memories. Our park is a favorite in the area and we have so many fun things to do in the park and also around the area. Come back again soon!

It was great.
Jun 05, 2016
Efficient check-in, nice tent-site, clean restrooms, friendly staff; can't ask for more.
Jun 04, 2016
We stayed in tent site 46 with a large tent (holds 5 adult Coleman cots). The bathrooms were easy to access as well as the pool and play area. We used the shuttle 2 days and that was really great. The staff is fabulous and my kids said it was the best KOA they've ever stayed in. We had a great time. Showers were hot and bathrooms were clean.

I wanted two particular camp sites and had put that in the notes on my online reservation. Someone was already on the two sites I had requested. Thankfully the campgrounds was able to finde two campsites next to each other.
May 30, 2016
We had a great time at this KOA. Pool was clean and well guarded. Loved the jumping-thing. Plenty of very helpful and polite staff.I gave 4 stars because it would have been nice to have a heads up that a huge motorcycle group would be in the campground. Mostly it was not an issue but when they started rolling out at 5am, it was hard to stay asleep :-)
May 30, 2016
I thought the campground was very nice. I love that it is pet friendly because I don't go anywhere without my pups.
May 22, 2016
I was charged a more expensive price than previously quoted

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

I sorry you felt you were quoted a different price. Capitol KOA sends a confirmation email before arrival with the price you have been charged. You were on a tent site and it was the regular price. It is good advice to get a KOA Value card. You save 10 percent every night you are staying at KOA.
May 16, 2016
My least favorite KOA so far.
May 09, 2016
As a tent camper, I couldn't say it was my favorite spot to stay. BUT, the staff was just exceptional and went above and beyond. I've travelled all over the world and if every business had staff like this KOA, they would be successful. Even checked the tires on my van and added air when we thought one tire looked low. Showed a movie to our girls even though it was just for the three of them. Super

Loved all of the activities for the kids and the shuttle (and drivers) were great! Some site plumbing upgrades would be helpful.
