Campground Reviews

Sep 05, 2018
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!

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.

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!

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.)

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.

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.

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

Super clean and very family friendly. Campsite itself was extremely small and you could hear all the traffic on RT 32 (which was directly behind the site). Had fun for our first camping trip

Les terrains avec du 30 ampères ne sont pas tous égaux. Lorsqu’on a un motorisé 35 pieds, on ne devrait pas être dans la section boisée. Faudrait faire attention où on assigne les places. Le personnel jeune est désagréable. Au moins, les plus vieux sont sympathiques et serviables.

Very comfortable, with super clean bathhouses. The shuttle service to and from D.C. was perfect--reasonably priced, convenient, and so much easier than trying to drive and park oneself. The drivers were super courteous. We had only one complaint, and it had to do with campers nearby who had 3 very loud and yappy Dachshunds. Not sure if this was management's responsibility or not.

The pool was out of commission which we had planned to enjoy. We feel that a reduction in what we were charged should have happened based on this fact. Also we were going to have 2 guests in one car come visit but were told that we would be charged $15 for them to do so. This is outrageous. We drove to them instead.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

The pool was closed for some necessary maintainance that could not be helped. It was reopened 3 hours later. We have a nominal fee of $ 5.00 for outside guests and it is a fair price for all the entertainment provided at our park.

Very quiet and relaxing, extremely friendly staff.

Main concerns:we parked in space provided for checking in & our brand new 2019 car was hit by child riding the rent a bike. Many kids were unsupervised and the next day some boys about ran into me getting out of car because our cabin had just pull to side of drive to park which was sandy and muddy. The cabin floor was gritty when we checked in. Shuttle bus daily &wished it had dvd or narration.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

The car was not damaged at all as it was rubber tire to rubber tire. The children were spoken to by their Mom.

Quiet and very relaxing. Enjoyed the stay. No complaints.

Vraiment un très beau camping. 5 étoiles :) Merci

From the moment we arrived until we left we had a blast there. Very informative and always asking how things are going. Also informing us on other resources available.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thank you for responding to the survey we are glad you enjoyed your stay. the front desk does a great day giving information about DC. Makes it easy for campers to plan their day. Come and visit again soon.

We love this KOA. One bedroom cabins are great and tent sites are huge compared to some others we’ve seen at other KOAs

Good starting point for visit to Washington, please consider evening return of the shuttle to be able to see Washington monuments and memorials in evening lights
