Our first time, will use koa again. Great entertainment things for our 10-12 year old grandsons. Loved being in a cabin in the woods. Only down side was the sour smell in cabin. We think from AC unit.

Nice campground w/lots of amenities. It is sort of far from DC but the closest KOA. It is also good for visiting Mount Vernon.

Our site was convenient to all the amenities, open for our satellite TV, wonderful pull through! The areas were clean, the staff very friendly and helpful - especially Kate, and has so much for the children. Highly recommend this KOA - we will be back - thanks!

Very clean, nice features. Everything worked. Easy check in. Very nice desk people. But it only takes one thing to tic a customer off and the whole experience is tainted. Your policy that my guest coming to pick me up to take us to dinner had to pay $5 for the car and $5 each just to drive to our camp site is so patently stupid, I will be pissed for months.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

The policy is you register at the front desk and pay guest fee. They are told if you return within 15 minutes you would receive your money back. Since most people intend to stay longer they never come back in fifteen minutes to receive refund and leave park.

The shuttle to Washington DC was incredibly helpful. The campground was clean with great, family fun facilities (ping pong table, pool, and jump pad). Having two shower house facilities also was a big plus! Already recommended this campground to my in-laws who are planning a trip to DC.

Staff was kind and helpful. Prices were a little high.

This was my children’s first time camping and they had so much fun. Will return really soon

Nice campsite, perfect for one night stay when you need to be near Washington DC. Traffic noise is there, but not as bad as we thought it would be.

This was my first visit to Washington DC. The staff at the KOA were fantastic. Super friendly and always there to assist. My only issue is that the highway nearby is extremely loud at night but that’s not there fault. The shuttle to the Capital was was a bonus so that I didn’t have to drive into the city and find parking. Overall a great camping experience.

The camper cabin was perfect. It was quiet and comfortable. The amenities (bath houses, pool, games, jumping pillow) were all well kept. My kids had a blast. Hopefully we will make this trip again and stay at this KOA again.

The restrooms are not well ventilated and therefore very warm on hot days. Likewise for the showers and they are also very small. There was a lot of debris in the pool and the water was not clear. The lifeguard was much less than pleasant.

Cabin was perfect size, nice new deck, nice table/chairs, and fire pit. Pool clean. Bathroom and showers always clean.
Jul 29, 2019
The site unlevel, deep gully on left side, tree roots in sitting area, firepit 2' feet from sewer drain. Unhappy with site #68.
Jul 29, 2019
Staff for phone service poor. Mediocre campground for the price. Have stayed there several times due to family lives close by.

Great campground, to much traffic noise

Management is clueless and oppressive. Stay here only if you like being harassed and abused.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

This camper refused to come in and register his unregistered guests who refused to come to the office. They had been asked three times to come to pay the guest fee. He was rude to his neighbor and got in another fight with another guest in the park over a firepit. He was dealt with quickly and was asked to leave the park.

Everyone was very nice and helpful. We are planning on coming back for a longer stay. So much to see.
Jul 27, 2019
Overnight stop, very clean, staff all were very helpful, would not mind spending a couple of days there!
Jul 27, 2019
Perfect place for our family of 5 to stay! Amenities were clean, plenty of activities for the kids and cabin was well maintained. Wish we had stayed longer!!
Jul 27, 2019
Staff were lovely! Thank you for a great stay!
Jul 27, 2019
Our stay was very good. A little pricey for camping so I would have expected cable tv and/or a better wifi system. Otherwise, the staff was great and the campground is very clean and well kept.

Great stay, perfect location between DC and Annapolis .
Jul 26, 2019
Very nice campground. Bathhouses are great and clean. Close to Annapolis and Baltimore. Easy to into DC when no traffic. Close to shops, food, etc.

The sites are beautiful, the staff helpful. It is an old campground, & needs serious updating. No AC in bathrooms, bathrooms worn, wet, usually not clean. Security non-existent, entrance gate never closed (we returned after midnight), bathrooms not locked. Sites NOT level at all, drainage runs right through sites 4) tables very poor shape 5) firepits poor shape. Campgound feels like state park.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

This camper stayed two weeks during extreme heat in 90+ degrees in a tent. We had major heat and thunderstorms every night. Not surprised they weren't happy. Capitol KOA does not need to close their gate. Bathrooms are not locked here as we are in a great neighborhood. We have upgraded deluxe tent sites which are very level. They chose basic site. And booked very late.

Had a reservation for a premium site. Got there and previous renter was still there so I was put in a dirt site with 30 amps and no sewer suitable for a 20 towable not a 41 foot motorhome. They didnt know what to do. No back up plan at all. Employees and manager are worthless. Will not go back. If this is the type of servthrough out the system then I think I wasted my money on a membership.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Not sure what you are talking about you were on a 90 ft PATIO site with 50 amp service and sewer. Site 34

Need disabaled hand rails in handicap shower. Need paper towels in restrooms to wipe off counters and bugs out of sinks

This camper comment has been removed by KOA due to profanity.

Polite staff, clean cabins, everything was as expected. Short drive to metro which gets you basically anywhere we needed to go in DC. Thanks!
Jul 24, 2019
very enjoyable

It's a nice campground with a pool and a few amenities for the kids. A lot of staff continuously riding thru as if they were looking for camper infractions. Just my opinion.
Jul 23, 2019
Great place to stay, conveniently located between Baltimore and DC. I think most people who stay here are visiting either DC or Baltimore, so the campground is quiet during the day. Good electric service, was able to keep A/C running even on one of the hottest days of the year. Friendly staff, clean bathrooms, nice laundry room.

This campground was a convenient location to stay close to a friend's house in Maryland. The camp ground was clean and we found everything we needed. The staff was very helpful when we checked in.
Jul 23, 2019
I was not happy when I arrived and learned that I would not have a full hook up as I had booked. The office indicated that this is a problem when booking online. Also, the bath houses were very dirty and very hot. While we had extremely hot weather during our stay I noticed that the bathrooms did not have A/C . The staff was friendly. I would like to say more but I'm out of characters.

My wife and I had a wonderful time! The cabin was beautiful, Cheryl and Bob could not have been nicer. They went out of their way to accommodate my wife and I.
