Fee is high. Disappointed no cable
May 07, 2018
Although the campground is kept clean and in order they do not offer cable and you can only get 2 networks over the air (abc and cbs) Some of the pull through sites have low hanging branches that will scrape on your roof and ac units, this mostly applies to 5th wheels and drivers. some traffic noise from route 3 but not overbearing.

Thank you for you great service. All the staff at the camp were extremely helpful. We were staying there due to having our dog checked at the vet and it was day by day due to the testing. The staff helped buy giving us all the help they could. Never giving us a problem with extending our stay. Thank you all and you have made a lifetime customer

Like the bus service to DC. It's the only way to go! ;)

The people there are great, and the campground is well maintained. My only complaint was the size of the site. We had a hard time parking our car because there wasn't enough room.

The name is a bit disingenuous, place is closer to Baltimore and Annapolis than D.C.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Campers come to Capitol KOA because of our shuttle service. It is the best way to get to DC. We are the only park in the area that shuttles to DC.

Great stay. Friendly staff. Camp ground is starting to look a little worn. But not bad

Sites were to close! Couldn’t get hot water in shower building!

We stayed at he KOA while we were attending the boat show in Annapolis and for my husband's sailing lessons. We did not make it to DC. The park was first class and staff was very helpful. Thank You

We came to visit 2 collages, our son is interested in attending. The Campground was easy to access and our site was level and clean. The personal was helpful and friendly. We enjoyed our stay, and would definitely stay here again. If our son decides on attending collage in DC, I'm sure we will be back. Thanks!

Thank you for taking the time to do our survey. We are glad you enjoyed your stay. Maryland is a great place for your kids to go to college. Hope to see you back soon.

Cabin was what was expected I just wish the portable heater is not something you are scared to use. But the staff is friendly so I can't complain. Thank you

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

The portable heaters are safe to use. Campers use them all the time. They have safety tip over shut off feature. Glad you did enjoy your cabin.
Apr 30, 2018
It was everything I have come to expect from KOA. Very friendly service. Very well kept Campground. We will be back!

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We have an awesome team that makes that happen. glad we fulfilled your expectations.

i really like the woodsy cabins that face the woods, face away from the camp. it's almost like a state park.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Our cabins facing the woods are especially nice. They are a camper favorite and very near the bathroom. Happy you enjoyed your stay.

I did not use the site assigned when I checked in after the office had closed for the day. The staff worked with me the next day to help minimize my moving to another site.
Apr 29, 2018
The staff was friendly and helpful. The site was good just wish it was a little more level.
Apr 28, 2018
Stayed in a 1 room cabin. Clean, nice, and tidy. Staff was friendly and efficient. Impressed with all the activities for kids (the pool wasn't open yet but there was still plenty to do). If you're heading offsite, you need to watch traffic as the campground access roads exit onto heavily trafficked roads.

We arrived after hours and someone else had taken our site assignment information. We picked a spot and checked in the next morning. We found out then that we had chosen a more expensive site and were asked to move. We were not charged the extra fee since we didn't know our site assignment. That was very much appreciated. Also, we found the staff to be very knowledgeable of the area and helpful.

Fantastic place to stay. Close to Washington DC

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thank you for rating our park. We are proud to have the President's award.
Apr 25, 2018
It is really sad that it is not possible to see all the amazing historical sites in Washington because they have the roads blocked. We drove almost 1000 miles to see the whitehouse and the Lincoln Memorial only to spend 4 hours in traffic trying to get even remotely close which failed

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

The KOA shuttle bus is the best way to get to DC that is why it is so popular. Also the metro train is a great way to go as it drops you right on the National Mall. Driving into DC yourself is not an easy way to go.

Love staying at this campground! Quiet, clean and well cared for! Thanks!

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

It was great seeing you again see you in the Fall.

The only odd thing was waking up on a Tuesday morning to the sounds of rather heavy gunfire. Perhaps we've stumbled on a re-enactment. Or perhaps we are camped close to a gun club. What ever the situation, not being told of it (presuming the staff was aware) is the only down check for this park

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Not sure what heavy gunfire this camper is describing as its the first we heard about it. We are not close to anywhere that would have a re-enactment. We are also not near any gun club. Perhaps this review is for another campground.

Enjoyed our first RV trip here, everyone was extremely friendly and facilities were clean and well kept!

The staff were super helpful and nice. The bathrooms were very clean and during the on-season, there seems to be a ton to do. The only downside is the tent sites are right on top of each other. If you like a little privacy when camping, this isn't the place for you.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

The back woods of the park is good for tent camping. Because of the unusual cold weather the water was not turned on in this section of the park because of freeze warnings. These are favored tent site areas. They have finally been opened this weekend.
Apr 22, 2018
Even if the camping is 3/4 empty, they give us small sites. Soap in the bathrooms do not smell good. Make sure to put half the soap in the frontal washers or you will have to pay for a second wash without soap. Only one light on the whole camping. Shower starts lukewarm and finishes cold. Too expensive for the month of April, without services and pool, etc.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

There are signs posted in the laundry stating to use half the soap you would use at home. We also remind campers if they come in for coins or soap. We have bright lighting around all the buildings in the park. We also have street lighting as well and also post lighting throughout the park.

Only a overnight stay but it was a nice park. Thank you to the manager for helping me get my car started. Friendly employees seems like a fun place to work.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thank you for filling out the survey we appreciate your kind comments. We will pass it on to our awesome staff.

We were charged an exorbitant amount of fees upon checkout. None of which were mentioned when we specifically asked at time of booking. Ants infestation in the cabins, along with incredibly rude and unhelpful staff didn't help at all. We will never stay here again.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

With the cold weather the ants are looking for a warm dry spot. This guest never mentioned while she was here that there was an ant problem. The guest was also sent an email confirmation that gives an estimated cost of your stay. The email also states additional fees may occur for extra people. This guest had 4 extra people per cabin. It is $ 5.00 per extra person which is a nominal fee.
Apr 20, 2018
Enjoyed our stay and the friendly staff. Just wish you had more fiull hook sites.
Apr 20, 2018
Nice location if you wish to visit Washington with the shuttle service
Apr 20, 2018
nicely maintained park but greatly over priced.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

In our area Capitol KOA is priced the same as other parks in the area. We do have a well maintained park as stated by this camper. We do have the President's Award.
Apr 19, 2018
The only good sites are in front of office .
Apr 19, 2018
Getting to the campground is tough, with all the traffic.
Apr 19, 2018
arrived after hours. no information on our confirmed spot. later, assigned spot difficult when so many others were easily available. However, assisted in other ways that made our stay more efficient, the next day. mjk

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

After hours campers who have not arrived yet need not worry. At our night registration guests will find their site map and directions to their site. This camper unfortunately did not stop to get their information. We did educate them on it the next day. So hopefully things will go smoothly for them next time. Whether here or at another KOA.

Very nice campground. Well maintained and very clean bathrooms and individual locking showers. Back in the country/woods area and away from the traffic/city. Premium pull-thru sites have a patio style table and chairs and gas bar-b-que grill. Only negative was that the store/office was closed at 6pm or shortly thereafter.
Apr 18, 2018
It was our very first stay with a 40 ft 5th wheel. The employee drove the golf cart ahead of us to our site, even veering out to show us how to execute the turn. Very friendly and helpful staff! The site also was clean and easy to level on. We will return!
Apr 18, 2018
Good location for visiting Washington. Site has it's own tour bus to take visitors into town. Showers worked well. We didn't try the new shower block at the back of the site, but they looked good. Staff friendly.

The shuttle into DC was convenient as you could not pay me to drive into town. The drivers were knowledgeable and friendly.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Our shuttle is very popular for that reason. Leave the driving to us. Spend more time enjoying your family without being stressed.
