Hi! My name is Chris Raynsford and I'm the General Manager here at the Washington DC/Capitol KOA Holiday.  I would like to welcome you and your family to our wonderful 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.
