Campground Reviews

Oct 23, 2018
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!!!!

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.

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

It was good except for the fact that we arrived after office hours, in the dark with a very dark route to our campsite. Caught a rock in the aluminum skin of a slide out and fender. Dark (unlit) tight corners. This was the route drawn on our campground map. The campground is in a good area to access DC.

Staff was very friendly! We rented 2 tent, no electric sites (95, 96). These 2 sites are horrible for a tent. Both are on a steep hill. No where was it flat. It is also full of big roots and rocks. My tent got 2 holes in the bottom from stumps sticking out of the ground. They need to do better with these spots if they plan to rent these out.

You'd never know this KOA is so close to the highway! Easy access to DC and other popular destinations. Park was clean and hosts were friendly. We had a smaller site with electric and water but it was clean. It's small so make your reservations early!!!

New owner charging for everything except the air you breathe. Last year was much more laid back. Pillow was broken so kids were upset. Won’t be rebooking for next year. Too many other great choices than to stay at a nickel and dimer campground.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Jumping pillow is on order for next year. There was a inflatable on borrow to hold us over. Also had a bounce house over the weekend as well. Full activities for Halloween were enjoyed by many families. All activities included in the price for campers.

The events for this weekend were very unorganized and not planned very well.for the pumpkin painting there were not supplies provided;the hay scramble was not fair having adults pushing kids.adults should not of been in it. bounce house should be supervised by staff there were many teenagers playing on there while young children were on there which caused small children getting hurt and bullied.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

The well planned event schedule was given to all campers at checkin. It is posted in all buildings and online. The pumpkin decorating was listed on schedule. Plenty of supplies available for decorating. Bounce house had supervision all day. No children were hurt on the bounce pillow. No adults pushed any children at hay scramble as it is timed by age.

You have a nice camp ground.my two complaints ( or I should say unhappiness) are that you charge for all the extra people and cars per night.if all the load do that well then I guess that's it.2nd. Is that the activities same a little unorganized the hay thing u should have had them line up as to age my 2 yr old grandson got push out of the way a lot same with the costume contest.sorry

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

We have a lot of guests come visit our registered campers.The small fee helps defray the cost of all the activities and supplies. We have limited parking so we do charge for extra cars. We encourage people to car pool. Halloween weekends we can have 100 or more people come join in on the fun with our registered campers. They are welcome to do that for a small fee.

Our least favorite campsite so far, after 15 different camping trips this year.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

This campsite was near the playground a favorite for families with children. This area is a favorite as it is near everything.

I was very impressed with the activities available for children: the inflatable bouncy castle, playground, crazy bikes, outdoor chess set and ping pong. The pool looks nice but not open due to the season. I was disappointed in the campsites, Many were not level and our had so many tree roots is was hard to walk. Also, unlike most KOAs our campfire ring was not clean when we arrived.

The KOA app is not updated like the KOA website. Once again I planned a tour that wasn’t happening from the campground. The website clearly noted this but the app did not. If you want us to use the app then you need to keep it updated

Loved it! Great place. Great staff. We’ll be back!!

Location is very convenient for me, but I feel the daily cost for stays is too high. If there was another option / location I would probably stay there. One additional improvement suggestion would be: Given the distance from DC and Baltimore, the TV reception is very poor so it would be great if cable TV service was provided.

Great people and facility...

No reliable directions given. Hard place to find and drive a motorhome. Horrible traffic around it. Manager very snippy and aloof. Way over priced. Not a good value for the money.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

Okay. So someone else parked in your site and you were upgrade to a patio site. The manager did not charge you for your upgrade. So..... don't know why you felt this way. We are comparable to all other campgrounds in the area in price.

Love this campground. Very accommodating during a very busy time if year. Very friendly staff.

The map to our pull thru space on the 1st night was confusing and the spot was a little tight. However, when I asked if I could move to another space, you wre very accommodating and spot 16 was terrific. Bathrooms were clean. Really nice campsite.

The host Cheryl and Bob are wonderful as is the whole staff. My group is with Sisters on the Fly and love Capitol KOA the most!! Cozy,safe, and clean campground with amazing customer service!

We arrived at 8 pm in the dark and pouring rain. It was easy to find the site info and the actual site. The site drained very well once the rain stopped and was an okay size. It wasn't as large as we would like but it wasn't tiny either. The staff were very friendly and provided info on KOA camps in general as well as the local area. I would stay again if I was in the area.

Outstanding as usual See you Friday Miss the Master Chief though

Campround was clean and quiet. Restrooms clean. Convenient to metro station.

Sorry it’s just too close to each other for us to return.
Oct 15, 2018
Not what I expected from a KOA campground. Bad water pressure, sites very close together, sewage smell, pool and other services was closed for the season but rate remained high. Not pleased with the campground
Oct 15, 2018
Campground was clean and staff was friendly. However I did request at the time of my reservation (online and on the phone) to be on a site for my RV near my friends in a cabin and their cabin was the farthest from my camp site. It made it more difficult to enjoy our college reunion. I wish there was a way for people to get sites / cabins together. Camping is always better in a group.

The patio sites are awesome. Nice patio table and chairs for outdoor dining or playing games. Clean propane grill for your outdoor cooking and anarondac chairs for relaxing by the amazing fire pit.

Stayed overnight with a fifth wheel in a pull thru site with full hookups. Made a last minute reservation by phone to avoid Hurricane Michael. The lady that took my phone reservation was very friendly, efficient and accommodating. The office staff at check in was friendly and efficient. The site # 51 was extremely unlevel, due to lack of rock. The breaker box was very far from my power point.

Convenient campground very close to major metropolitan areas. Excellent directions to those areas by the campground. Thoroughly enjoyed our stay there. We are a 45 foot motorhome so we found getting to and exiting from our camp site a bit tight for comfort but were expertly guided by staff. Friendly and professional staff from start to finish. Flat, level sites. Fire pits.

The staff was very friendly, our site was clean and well-maintained, and the kids had a great time on the playground and blow-up obstacle course. It only took us about 45 mins (with traffic and construction) to reach DC.
