Asked for shady spot, and although plenty available, got a bare spot� Also, booked shuttle for next day but had to cancel two hours later because of repair issue that had to be resolved next day. Refund refused. Greedy, not very accommodating. Also, very expensive for nothing special. No cable tv. Sites need more gravel. Would not return.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

This camper asked the next day for a refund not two hours later. At check in campers are informed before buying tickets that they are non refundable. We got complaints about site 21 repairing their tire at 12 am in the morning. And talking loudly at that early hour disturbing other campers. When another guest asked them to keep it down Site 21 was rude to them.

All was good except when a tree snagged my roof and ripped a hole in it coming out of the site. All trees need to be trimmed to allow clearance for RV's. This will be very expensive fix and uncalled for in a campground. ALWAYS should be clearance for trees.

The KOA daily shuttle to D.C. was wonderful. The staff at the KOA was very courteous and helpful. The general store is above average for a KOA. Large, quiet KOA. Prompt wood delivery. For suggestions, perhaps upgrade the small bathroom facilities near the office. Also, we could have used a path from the extended deck cabins to the bathrooms to shorten the walk in the middle of the night.

The nature trail was disappointing but the rest of our stay was great. We had 4 grandchildren 12 and under

Si vous y aller avec une tente demander les site de luxe car les autre sont mal placer plein de vase et non adéquat pour une tente. Sinon le personnel est tes courtois.

we usually tent camp, but given the crazy Maryland weather this summer we opted for a 1 room cabin. The cabin was clean and very comfortable. We had a great time at the pool and joining in the crafts and family game sessions. Thank you KOA staff you are all very helpful and polite.

The staff was phenomenal, courteous informative and attentive and smiled through my son flooding the bathroom lol. Overall campground was great. Pool, outdoor pool table, ping pong, chess and always the pillow got heavy use. Upgrade to power and water tent site, rustic sites or around pillow have biting ants and some sort of gnat. Also, defy GPS at times, the merge onto 3 sucks.

We appreciated the extra effort put forth to make our stay an enjoyable one! We took the shuttle into Washington, DC and it was well worth every penny. Upon leaving, we were given excellent directions to get back on the interstate and return home. If we decide to visit Washington, DC again, we would consider staying at this KOA.

Wifi work excellent and Tour Suttle bus service appreciated.

We stayed for a week and had a really good time. A few bonus things would be an arcade/club house for kids on rainy days, maybe more movie nights and deli meats/cheeses. We will definitely be va I!

Staff was great, facilities for kids excellent, price is very high but typical for DC and Annapolis. Due to small sites, lack of privacy between sites and a "parking lot" feel, it doesn't feel like camping as much as parking.

We loved the showers. Lock the room for complete privacy.

Second time we stayed . Great location and lots to do . They do have a life gaurd at the pool which is great but when there is only 1 on duty they close the pool 1 time and hour for 10 minutes . They also don’t allow some child floatation devises which is their choice but check before you goto swim with your child ... the life guard was not to friendly. I would stay again for sure . Thank you

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thank you for filling out the survey. Wanted to clarify it is a Maryland rule that floatation devices must be coast guard approved. It s not an option it is mandatory here in Maryland. The lifeguard's job is to ensure our guests safety. Sometimes she has to say it more then once. Glad you enjoyed your stay.

I would go here anytime .

Had a level shaded pull through site in the woods for the Motorhome. Temperature was 15 degree cooler than the sunny sites during our stay. Will be back again.

Just not up to a FUN family KOA stay. Told no water at tent site but there was, told no fire pit use but others did, pool shuts down every 60 minuets for 10 minuets for a chemical check. That's nuts don't tell me about pool chemicals I live in Miami. EVERYONE here has a pool. Not a lot of stuff for kids. Not a good value overall.We loved the KOA in Cape Cod, MA. Thats a great KOA.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

The rules are different in Maryland compared to Florida. It is a county rule the water must be tested once an hour. The pool service contracted is required to follow these rules. It is the law. The playground, jumping pillow, fun bikes, pool table, ping pong, basketball and swimming pool is enjoyed by many children. On weekends there is a full list of activities.

It's unusual for a KOA not to offer cable. There were quite a few local channels available over the air, but at $80 a night cable should be included. Bathrooms need updating and sites need to be more level. It's an adequate facility in a market where RV parks are limited so we end up staying there but we have stayed in much nicer KOAs. Dog park is tiny.

Quiet, clean, and peaceful.
Aug 06, 2018
Bathroom could use a good old fashion cleaning.
Aug 06, 2018
We really enjoyed our stay! Plan on coming here again.
Aug 06, 2018
Staff was great from the we called to make my reservation to the time we left. It is a very nice well kepted campground. If I were to have one minus it is the young man who was lifeguarding should stay of his phone while on duty.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

The lifeguard was female watching the pool. The supervisor that stops in is allowed on his phone. He calls in the pool chemical counts. He is not the lifeguard.

Great place to stay ads no need to battle traffic when you take the Campground shuttle.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

The shuttle is very popular for the ride into DC. We are glad to make it stress free to ride into town for you and your family.

Worst spot of all campgrounds. Could not get RV leveled. And in mud. We arrived late in dark and directory of campground was wrong. They clean bathroom between 9:00 - 11:30 AM... stupid. Too expensive for such a bad spot.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

There is always a bathhouse open during cleaning times. Site 54 the directions are accurate as there are guests in this area every night. Arriving after dark is always a challenge.
