The Halloween Weekend was so perfect for the kids. Kids of all ages had the best time. Super cute cabins. That climbing wall was an AMAZING thing to throw in!

Everyone very friendly. We were not aware we were staying on a Halloween celebration weekend. The weekend was very enjoyable and festive.

Nothing that you can change, but compared to other KOAs this one is extremely pricey for being squished on top of each other. The fire ring is almost on the road and there is no privacy at all due to how close things are. Would never choose to stay at this one again.

Great location and very nice campsite with lots of option for staying. Easy access to shops and restaurants. Bathrooms and Cabin was clean as expected.

1st time staying at a Koa and wasn’t sure what to expect from a chain style campgrounds. Everything was great, we stayed in a cabin and it was cute, clean and comfy. I do wish this Koa had pictures of the cabins on the site, I loved how the decks pointed into the woods instead of the road like the stock photos.

Lovely campground and facilities! The employees at the office were so helpful and welcoming! I stayed 2 nights in an affordable cabin on a road trip up the east coast! I plan to stay here on my way back down the coast as well! Thanks KOA!

Our cabin site was small but nice. The bathrooms were clean. The office delivered bundles of wood for our fire. We also called the office and said we would be late back from the Navy football game and they left wood on our porch waiting for us. KOA let us pay them the next morning. My kids loved the bounce pad. Overall solid experience.

We stayed 3 days and 2 nites . The bathrooms were never cleaned . The cabin was very comfy and the lady at the office at nite was VERY helpful, with that said the last day when we were leaving we waited till 8 am (when you open so the sign says ) we walked up to the door that was locked and a young girl opened the door and not very nicely stated “is there something we can do for you” rude!

Cabin was clean, landscaping around k121 needs some help as it was very dusty from being straight dirt. Loved the dog area. We were surprised how little road noise there is even with being just over the hill. Sat evening we were disappointed to see a very unprofessional moment between two employees in the office as he was screaming at her for not double checking an RV length, please address this

This is my third time staying here. The first two times were 4 and 5 years ago. I live locally and all three times including this time were to have small camping themed birthday party. The KOA site itself is great - the staff are friendly and nice EXCEPT the check in woman. She is NOT NICE at all. The other two times I had been 4 & 5 years ago were so nice and accommodating. This time was CRAZY.

Nice location and peaceful. The staff was very nice. The tv didn't work very good in the cabin and bathroom had mold on walls. Didn't bring these concerns up to staff when staying there wasn't that big of an issue.

Dirty and flooded men's bathroom that is close to the office (all the time). Spiders, spider webs and mouse droppings in the Cabin. No kids activities planned during the week or on the weekend. Unfriendly service and rude behavior of the management working in the office with the customers. Poor site maintenance and not a fun place to stay. We didn't like Capital KOA campsite or its management.

Loved the setting of our cabin- our air conditioner barely worked warm and extremely damp at all times in our cabin- respiratory issues- so it was difficult. Bathrooms poorly maintained and cleaned. Nice staff and great location for the Metro

Everything was great. The only down side was we rented the large cabin that sleeps 8 and another cabin that sleeps 4. With 6 adults we were only allowed 1 car per site. The third car had to pay $35 for the week and park at the office even though our large cabin had room for a second car.

Staff was very courteous. Having shuttle bus to DC was convenient. Rented a deluxe cabin, it was clean and necessities were provided. Campground was clean and had lots of things to do. Only down fall is that the sites are tight for an RV and where I had to park my truck it was very tight.

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.

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.

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!!

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

Great staff, wonderful campsites, nicely done!

People working there were nice. Camp was clean. But it is too close to a highway and the truck and car noise take away from the tranquil quiet nature of camping. They should add a free standing grill to the cabin and tent sites. The grill is on the ground also used as a fire pit.

Wish you allowed pets in cabins that had bathrooms.

Great stay! Clean and this KOA has a very friendly staff.

We were not aware of the fee for our extra vehicle until check in, only one was allowed at the cabin, which was fine and we parked our other car in the store parking lot, but its $5 per day for a 2nd vehicle. So I paid $10 just because we had 2 cars, which I've never experienced before at other KOAs. Staff could be friendly!! Otherwise, it was an ok stay.

Ask for close to bathroom got for away
Jul 15, 2019
Asked for late check out being that we checked in late didn’t mind paying extra.Was told no Paid for another night the lady that checked us in said that no one was coming in after us on Sunday And we didn’t have rush out then some other guy showed up at 11:55pm and said we have to get our stuff out of the cabin right now.Paid $500 for some uneducated man to speak to My very disrespectfully


Guest was told checkout was 12 pm. Cleaning staff were kept waiting until 12:30 pm because guest said they were still in the pool. They were informed early in the morning that there is no late checkout. The new campers coming in had to wait to checkin as the people had not left on time. The cleaning crew were not rude as they had to ask three times before they could get in to clean.

Awesome place to vacation. Great location but a little tricky to find, new signs would help a lot. The pool is beautiful with a lifeguard in duty so parents can really relax! Staff is very friendly and helpful. The shuttle to D.C. is a lifesaver!

The cabin was great. The bus was not good. The AC did not work in the back, did not work well on the first day, the shocks were AWFUL. The showers & bathrooms were amazing

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!!

This campsite is a diamond in the rough! We booked a cabin for the Halloween festivities and worried it might be a let down. It was the opposite! It was packed full of things to do and lots of people to do them with. They even did trick or treating on the grounds and my kids loved going from RV to cabin and getting candy. My whole family talked about going back in the summer and seeing how it would be in a different season. Definitely check it out!
