Meet Your Hosts

Everyday camping is better than a day at work.

Hi my name is Bob McGinnis and I want to welcome you to Washington D.C./ Capitol KOA Campground. Whether you are looking for a busy day of sightseeing in Washington D.C. or a fun weekend camping trip, you have come to the right place. I always refer to our campground as a "quiet little country campground in the middle of nowhere 20 minutes from everywhere". The campground is located just 20 minutes from Baltimore's Inner Harbor, 20 minutes from downtown Annapolis, home of the United States Naval Academy and 20 minutes from the Metro stop to Washington D.C., our Nation's capitol. Be sure to check-out our Washington D.C. shuttle that leaves directly from the KOA everyday through September.
