Great people, facility and location. Had a tire blow out on the rear of our coach. Tire company came out to change the tire and the other three rears. They didn't have a large enough wrench to get the center cap bolt off! But "Doc" who works there did! Great people. Thank you all!

This camper was such a nice gentleman and was grateful and thanked everyone. Our "Doc" is a handy helpful guy. Lol

Manager and wife extremely unfriendly and not helpful. Many other team members were very nice and helpful. No information offered about the area. Paid extra for kids - they were looking forward to jumpy pillow, but it was not available. Dog area was muddy and poopy. Sites very close together, no activities for kids, nothing special at all for the high price paid.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

This camper was unhappy about the jumping pillow being broken. The front desk has all kinds of information on DC and the surrounding area. We provide that at check in. Not sure why they say we were not friendly as we spoke to them several times. And gave them ideas what to do in the area. This family arrived at the tail end of Halloween weekend. Dog area is monitored daily by staff.

People,cabin and,the gift shop was nice with sales.Only thing I would say is I wish the dogs could stay in any cabin with it being small and potty trained.

Sites were little more than stone dumped between trees, poorly marked sites, thank goodness it didn’t rain. The staff was very friendly and helpful.

Stayed at a lodge to visit our son at the Naval Academy. The lodge was impeccably clean and comfortable. And the staff was extraordinarily helpful. Thank You

Management is very unprofessional and rude. Won't be back.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

This camper was upset we would not inflate the inflatable house while it was raining or wet. She asked 5 times. It was 45 degrees outside. The inflatable holds water. Too wet and cold. None of the employees were rude to this camper.

Shower heads need to be replaced. Water did not get hot. Unable to use. Was told that they will be upgraded in the near future.

The campground is nice enough, and in a good location, but the freeway is very close and noisy.

Very handy

I love the small campground. The staff was nice as well. Only issue was all the RAIN.... but it did let up before the kiddies went trick and treating.

Loved the campground. Our only issue was the amount of people at the site. We were told 6, but woman at counter argued when we requested a wrist band for a 5th person. I was even told that no one told me 6 people and implied we were lying. Your policies should be in writing when making reservations so no one is confused. Other than this we had a great memory making weekend

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

The campground policy of 6 per site max is listed online, in our brochure and is standard for campgrounds. The amount of wristbands are what is listed on reservation and are ready for the guest. Our policies are in writing on multiple websites and is listed on reservation confirmation. I am sure Miss Jones was polite at check in. You would have to pay for a 5th band.

Nice place. Not happy with the roster fixtures and loose towel hangers in showers behind main office. Other showers are fine. I expect nicer when I am paying this much to stay. Overall I enjoyed it.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We don't have rusty fixtures or lose hangers. ?

Staff was kind and friendly. Wish my fire ring was not flooded with water.

Despite a rainy start, we had a really great time (as usual) at the KOA for Halloween weekend!

The stay was very expensive. Over $500 for 2 nights. It did rain 75% of the time which I understand is out of anyone's control. Our cabin itself was nice. However the pots and pans provided weren't usable. If you tried to cook the fire alarm continuously went off, only one person could shower because the hot water only lasted 10 minutes. No sheets were provided for the bunk beds although stated.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

There is a standard pots and pans set provided. Smoke alarms are mandatory in cabins. The bunk bed sheets are stored in plastic boxes under the bed. When there is an issue we recommend you come talk to the staff. We were not made aware of any issues while the guest was here. This guest stayed in one of our popular deluxe cabins.

It was an amazing stay! We loved the campground and the Halloween activities for the kids were awesome! We loved it all. Thank you to all the amazing staff. We will definitely come again!

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thank you! Despite the weather everyone came together to show their kids how Plan B works with the rain. We were very grateful by midafternoon the rain stopped. Kids enjoyed the pony rides, climbing wall, bounce house, face painting, pumpkin decorating, costume contest hayrides, and trick or treating.

Staff was wonderful.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Thank you they all came together to be sure the guests had a great time. We had many happy campers despite the rain.

We just a little upset when we got there even though we brought an extra card it brings our kids we got charged extra $5 for a car that stays on our campsite interfering with anybody else's and that's $5 a day people were nice though electric on a campsite was on the wrong end though we had a hard time stretching a cord out to get it had to move the camper way to the front of the campsite electric

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We have lots of campers invite guests to our Halloween Special Event weekend. All campgrounds in our area charges for extra cars as we have limited space. We provide an awesome weekend for the families and it helps defray costs associated with this event. This camper stayed in a popular site usually enjoyed by campers.

Friendly, helpful staff! Got to enjoy the Halloween decorations and fun. Laundry facilities were clean and all machines operable. Easy access to the metro station to get to Washington DC.

Welcome back we are glad you enjoy staying with us frequently. Building memories with families is our business. Come again soon.

A convenient stay for visitors to Washington, DC, or Baltimore area. Bathrooms are clean and well maintained. Pull-through sites are well rocked, but back-in sites are not... lots of bare dirt. Over priced for the site.
Oct 24, 2018
Very nice campground but seemed a bit pricy for this late in the season. Still, a very convenient location for the Annapolis/ DC area we were visiting.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Fall is prime season at Capitol KOA between the Renaissance Faire, Boat Shows, Fleet Week, and our Super Fun Halloween weekends. We bring in a lot of amusements for our Halloween weekends. We also allow our registered campers to bring in outside guests which brings lots of children to our events. For a small fee they get to enjoy all the fun activities our campers do.

Great time. Great activities.

Always a great lay over at this park!

Loved the new management - efficient, courteous, caring, knowledgeable, thoughtful ........
Oct 23, 2018
We stay every year for Halloween weekend with a group of friends and our families. We really love the small campground and feel our kids are safe when they are out exploring the activities going on. They were very disappointed that the bouncy pillow wasn't up. This is one of the things they really look forward to. We hope to see it next year.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

The plans are to put in a new bounce pillow next year. The pillow had a big hole in and that's why it was not up. See you guys next year have a great winter.

The manager of the camp ground Bob was very rude. He should not be in a customer relations fails at all. He talk down to us like we were children because we were listening to a little radio and talking around a camp fire at 950 pm. Quiet time was at ten but we weren’t making that much noise at all. He pretty much ruined our camping trip. I hope the other KOA’s aren’t like this!!!!

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

What they failed to tell you it was actually 10:50 PM and this was the 2nd time they were asked to be quiet. I had told them that I have received several complaints from other customers who wanted to sleep. And that it was fine for them to sit around the campfire and talk, but they needed to keep it down and turn off the radio. Also that there were 10 to 12 people around the campfire. And that 2 o

The staff is well organized and very attentive. Requests for support, such as propane or firewood, were fulfilled immediately. We brought grandchildren for the Halloween weekend for a second year and were just as impressed as we were last year with the activities.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We are glad you enjoyed our Halloween weekends. We had the perfect weather for it. I will pass on the compliments to our hard working staff. It takes a lot of planning for our favorite holiday weekends.

When I checked in I was refused using my KOA points because it was a special event weekend. While I understand the 2 night minimum on this weekends and not allowing use of points for one of the 2 required nights, I was staying 3 nights. I should be allowed to use my points for the 3rd night of a 2 night minimum weekend. If I had came in for only Sunday they would have been accepted.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Points can not be used for outside guests entry fees.

Halloween weekend was a blast. Lots of fun for kids and adults.

Great Halloween event,will be back next year

Could hardly sleep. The noise from the highway up the hill behind our site was very loud and never stopped.
