Campground Reviews

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.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

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

It was quite and located in a beautiful area.

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

My stay was just ok. The website said that no electric and water tent sites were available for the weekend I stayed so I booked a regular one where they put us was a very bad spot. It was right next to the cap for the septic tank and we smelled sewage almost the entire stay. It was not a nice camp site. We walked about several times and found lots of campsites open that had electric and power.

Ok nice place would stay again

With the exception of the rude, angry, dismissive woman who checked us in, our stay was wonderful. Seriously considered cancelling our cabins and just losing $250 because of the way she behaved. I was so humiliated. She ended up calling the manager and I let my daughter deal with the check in.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

This camper was explained the visitor fees which she did not agree with paying them. After holding up a long line of people we asked her to step aside. We called the manager after she told the camper behind her to shut up. We were never rude to her.

Good Location, was clean and a nice pool.

Great staff, clean washrooms, good location. Main drawback is the fire pits are close to the RVs. Would come here again!!

Great campground.

It would be very helpful to your campers if you would add another Trash Bin. Having only one Trash Bin is a inconvenient

We visited the area in the off-season with plans to visit nearby attractions. We were welcomed by a pleasant staff that were very knowledgeable about the area attractions and modes of transportation in to the city. They helped us book trips in to see some of the attractions that were on our bucket list. Shout out to our bus driver that brought us in to D.C. We rode the wrong bus back to our meeting spot and our bus driver, from the campground, went out of his way to come get us. We love staying at KOA's; they have such friendly staff, real nice campgrounds and activities for all ages!!
