Campground Reviews

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.

Bathroom could use a good old fashion cleaning.

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.

Great help at the registration desk regarding getting around. The only thing I would like to see improved is better wifi as there are no tv's in the cabins and a fridge as the other KOA cabin's we have stayed in had them

We stay there for 3 days took a shuttle in the DC it was overall a good experience no complaints

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

The KOA Shuttle is a popular option to get into DC. It is a good value at $ 14.50 round trip.

The staff was very nice but our site #13 was the worst . No tree, very close together...for the price thumbs down. The shuttle to DC and dog park made up for some of our disappointment.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Site 13 is a popular site especially for guests with children. It is up front and satellite friendly and across from the playground.

Nice deluxe cabin. We stayed 2 nights with 2 adults and 5 children. Sleeps 7-8 (2 in queen, 2 in bunkbed, 2 in loft, 1-2 on folding couch). Linnens, kitchen pots and pans, towels all included. Table with 4 seats inside, another set outside on the deck. Master bedroom bed very comfy. A/C in living too close to couch, used the seat cushions against wind. Train station New Carrollton at 30 min drive

Perfect

This is always a quick, overnight stay as I drive between the Lakes Region of NH and the Savannah, GA area a few times a year. The staff is pleasant and efficient. I appreciate that when I request a specific site (or area), and able to be reserved, I am accommodated . The campground is quiet, clean, and well maintained. Thank you!

Everything was excellent. The check in process was simple. The site was level and very easy to get in and out. It was shaded most of the day which was very nice. The entire campground is kept very clean and neat. The location is perfect for visiting Baltimore, DC, and Annapolis. We enjoyed our stay very much and are definitely staying there every time we need to visit in the area. Often.

Excellent service.

Its a nice campground but an hour away from any sites. Most of the staff is friendly but one staff member (who we always seemed to be stuck dealing with) was very rude. We spent $75 one day for the shuttle into DC only to be brought back in a crappier leaky shuttle and I was soaked to the bones and freezing when we got back. The next day we spent $90 on the shuttle that had no air conditioning!!!

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

This camper who was late returning to the bus for pickup was soaking wet when she got on the bus. The rest of the passengers who arrived on time were patient about waiting for this group. The next day they were late again and ended up on the sunny side of the bus.

The campground was well located for our trip to DC. My only complaint is that we were on the third row of sites from the bathrooms. Because of the way the sites are laid out, we had to walk a very long way to the bathrooms ( down a road and then double back) even though we weren’t too far from the bathrooms the way the crow flies.

Nice convenient campground close to Annapolis & DC with tours available. Milano's restaurant delivers great food quickly and is quite reasonable...flyer in campground registration materials. We look forward to next year!

The staff in the office were so friendly and helpful. The campground was clean, and check in was easy. I was disappointed that their large sites are basically in the parking lot right beside the main entrance. There was a lot of traffic. The sites are very close together, our picnic table was about 2 feet from our neighbors sewage. The pool was also very cloudy, but to be fair, it rained a lot.

Everything was fantastic about this campground except for the sight itself. The sight we were assigned had a very big slope making it difficult to level my trailer. Maybe it was just me since I am a first time travel trailer owner. All the staff were very helpful in all my needs.

A great campground, some things are a tad older, but they have been making renovations and the layout, location, easy in and out, made it a great stay.

We went to the Renaissance Fair and this is the best place to stay.Debbie in the office was so funny and great with the kids. And Helen at the front desk checkin was so pleasant and Bob took us to our site. We Ubered to the Faire. New this year they have a GaGa Ball Pit. The kids had a blast and they had a new jumping pillow thingy. We stayed on a premium patio campsite and it was nice and relaxing. They delivered firewood and ice right to our site. We are coming back for their great Halloween.
