We enjoyed our stay at the KOA campground! Very clean restrooms and showers. Purchased campfire wood and very nice gentleman delivered it to our campsite within minutes. Playground was awesome. Park very clean. The girl who checked me in was not very helpful and was more concerned about ordering her dinner then paying attention to the check in process. I do highly recommend!

Enjoyed the stay despite the weather, we really didn’t stay much during the day but we always enjoy your KOA and stay there for most of the Navy Football home games!

This was non descript, but felt safe. I was not clearly made aware of the pool being closed the day after Labor Day (because they have to have a lifeguard even for adults?) so it was miserable heat/humid days with no way to enjoy the outdoors. The metro was actually 35/40 min each time in addition to another 40 min to the mall. Driving in was 42 min. I consider this for proximity only stay.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We close the pool Labor Day weekend and it is listed on the website and also on social media. Here in Maryland the pools close Labor day. It is mandatory to have lifeguards. It can not be KOA staff. Our pool service ends our contact on Labor Day. The metro is the fastest most convenient way to get to DC. We don't recommend campers drive into DC.

We made reservations July 11 for Aug 28-Sept 5 (8 nights) and it would have been nice to have a shady spot but we were told that others reserved for the weekend. 8 days

The only bad thing I can say is the laundry room sucks. It should be huge & air conditioned!

Weather was perfect for the kids, bathroom and shower was clean all the times, the only that I don't liked was a grill, because was in the ground floor and I have a really back problems. Other wise, everything was good. We enjoyed. Thank you

It was nice. Would like a more level lot next time.

Common areas were neat and clean however our site was not mowed and very muddy. More stone was needed to cover dirt. I would stay there again however only in a few spots that I have noted on the map as I walked around the campsites. Staff was friendly and very courteous.

Overall, the campground was nice. The team that runs the KOA is extremely nice. My only complaint is the showers need a good cleaning!!

People were very cooperative and helpful.

We came for the Maryland Renaissance Fair and to explore Annapolis, both were extremely close. The staff was very friendly. I was super impressed at how trusting the KOA system is for people arriving late. Our key for the cabin was just sitting out in a little alcove, and after driving 8 hours it was quite the relief. Would come back again. Only bad thing was the water temp in the shower.

We are glad you came for the Faire it was fun to see all the costumes. We are glad you found your key easily and could get to your cabin.

I was disappointed that I didn't get the cabin I wanted but we had a great time anyway! The staff was very pleasant even when i was very upset that my reservation wasn't correct. I learned what not to do when making a reservation in the future!

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

The site guarantees are a great way to ensure you get a favorite cabin. When available we can assist you in picking it out. Early reservations are wise as we fill up very fast at this KOA especially holiday weekends.

We have been KOA last three years and we had some bad experience this time. The Manager was very Rude when we were using swimming pool after check out instead she should have convey very gently. Kids were very disppointed as they were ask to go out in middle. And we had lots of insect bites, Big disappointment.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

This group had already been told it was past checkout. Front desk told them once they turn in their tags they were to leave. Other guests had paid for late checkout. This group refused a late checkout fee. The lifeguard had told them to leave and they refused. We have to fair to other paying guests that paid extra to remain later. We did have to tell them twice to leave as they ignored staff.

At a glance this KOA is nice and the facility is well maintained. However, once the sun goes down the noise ratchets up and the management is nowhere to be seen. Several tent campers partied, fought and played music late into the night, making it very difficult to get sleep.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Manager is on call and available all night. There are after hours numbers posted for immediate response. Manager was not contacted all night.

This was our first time staying at a KOA and it was a great experience. I was very surprised and happy to see that there was a dog park and dog friendly trails. The facility was very clean and organized and the staff was extremely friendly and helpful. Would definitely stay there again if we are ever in the area!

We are glad to be your first KOA experience and happy you enjoyed your stay. Come and see us again!

Great location for seeing the D.C. sights. We used the KOA shuttle and did the whole tourist thing. The campground facility was nice and well kept. The staff was very friendly and informative. Great shopping and restaurants within a few miles on Rt. 3. The only thing we would have wanted was cable TV. We'll be back when the weather isn't in the high 90's. We would recommend this facility.

We had another great stay! Our guaranteed site reservation was not correct when we arrived, but the office staff worked hard to get it corrected. The only thing I think the campground is ever missing is some type of Friday/Saturday night event (other than the outdoor movies) for the campers at least on the big weekends. (e.g. a dance or party in pavilion w/ music, etc.)
Sep 04, 2018
Very nice staff, accommodating and helpful. The shuttle was the best way to go into DC!

Expensive compared to other KOAs considering lack of amenities/layout (refrigerator, bedside table, fire pit immediately next to road and driveway). Campground tight w/ no clear paths to walk through without going through other people's sites. Small bathroom for size of campground. Only pluses were pool and moonbounce. 1 hr+ from DC doesn't justify the "DC" cost. Will not stay again.

This guest had rented a basic cabin which is a economy cabin. There are two bath houses and well marked roads to and from the amenities. This KOA also offers deluxe cabins with all the amenities mentioned above. The KOA is comparable in price to campgrounds in the area.

Arrived Friday night at our Deluxe 8-person, departed Sunday morning. Perfect for a weekend getaway with friends, enjoyed cooking on the kitchenette and sitting around the fire pit. Will definitely stay again!

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

The deluxe cabins are a camper favorite and so nice to stay in. It really is a home away from home with all the amenities they offer.
Sep 04, 2018
Bathrooms were filthy and the tall bright red haired lady was extremely rude. I thought all KOA campgrounds had to meet certain standards.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

It is not rude asking the guest to abide by the rules of the lifeguard.
Sep 03, 2018
Unfortunately we only had 2 days for our visit. We will definitely have to return sometime in the near future to see some more of the amazing sights.

Our trailer broken down on the way to your site and we had to stay one night on the road. Cheryl was very nice and waved the first nights fee until we could get to the campground and put us up in a cabin for our vacation to DC. All the staff was very friendly and helpful. The campground was very nice but the bathrooms were very humid and showers were as well. Pool was great as was the shuttle.

Stayed here one night on the way to the shore 25 years ago. Stayed here again on 8/29/2018. Other than a few new cabins no updates. We registered on line for a pull thru site with full hookups. The site we were provided was a pull thru but it was poorly graded gravel, no cable TV. For the price we were charged I expected more. I

Had AC problems with our RV on a blistering hot week. Staff did a great job (Cheryl) in helping us find a solution and get us back on the road just prior to a busy Labor Day weekend. Very pleasant stay even considering the problems.

We were glad to be able to assist you in your hour of need. We are glad it made your stay better. Glad you made it back home safely.

This is the perfect place if you want to be away from the city of DC. You have the option of a no drive trip into DC ( highly recommend), with drop off in front of the Capital. The grounds and facilities were nice, and campsites are well spaced. Staff were very helpful with recommendations in DC. We stayed 5 days needed another 5 to really see the history of our nation. Perfect stop!

The ground pillow was damaged. Unfortunately, these things happen. They brought in another inflatable, but stated that it blew the breaker and they weren't going to put it up until the weekend. I was staying with three children that were extremely excited for the inflatables and instead the inflatable laid on the ground for the 2 days that we were there.

It was our first excursion in our motorhome and things went very smoothly. Everyone was very nice and helpful. We did have an issue with our reservation. We had specifically asked for a certain spot and reserved it in person and when we went to check in the spot was unavailable. Other than that we had a good experience.

Cabin was clean. Neighbors were great. Bugs weren't as bad as I thought they would be. Staff was very accommodating--1. Had two handicap family guests who were offered a golf-cart ride to my unit. 2. My other guest forgot his bathing suit, and Staff loaned him a pair so that he wouldn't have to buy a pair. 3. Were open to the suggestion of selling white chocolate (daughter is allergic) for s
