RV Reviews

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.

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.

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.

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.

First impression with check in with Juliet was horrible. Rudest person we have very met. After check in she walked away without a word asked what next she said find our spot or wait for escort then scratched her crouch grabbed her lunch bag and walked away. Thanks to dr bob for fast service on fixing the electric box. Everyone else super nice. Clean and organized campground.

Very pleasant with excellent hosts.

1st all staff members were very nice & helpful. The reason for the low rating is due to the sight we were on being awful. It was muddy, uneven and unfortunately the wifi was horrible plus no cable.When I booked the stay I wanted a larger area but according to the app there was none for the time I needed, yet there were multiple larger lots vacant the entire stay. Pools overcrowded, bathrooms dirty

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

The site was chosen by the camper because of economy price. We have excellent WIFI at this location. Often people think that empty spaces mean they are not rented. We were at capacity for the last three nights. There were no other available sites for this camper. Book early at Capitol KOA.

The shuttle service they run to and from DC is a joke. The trolley service they recommend and sell tickets to is even worse. Day one we had to run 10 blocks after waiting 45 minutes for a trolley to get back in time for the return shuttle. Day 2 we ended up having to Uber back to the campground after waiting almost an hour for a trolley. Staff was rude and unhelpful!!

Clean. Big sites for a KOA. Helped me with printing tickets. No problems, pleasant stay.

emplacement pour vr très croche,mal nivelé

Campground was average the site we had was easy to get into but very close to adjoining sites. The most important thing we always look for is the condition of the restrooms. They were a little disappointing the restroom by the office was not very clean with overflowing urinal and toilets. The other restroom was much better water temperature was hard to adjust. Couldn’t get a late check out

This was the second time we stayed here while visiting DC. Shaded lots and really convenient to the metro. They also have a shuttle service.
Jul 16, 2019
Great place we stumbled on...all facilities are clean, campground is also clean and appealing. Sites are well kept and easy to maneuver RV through grounds. Ability to access Washigton DC from the site whether through the shuttle the KOA provides or via Lyft is great! Would highly recommend and would definitely return.

We had requested a shady spot when we made our reservation. When we arrived we were told that no shady spots were available. Our grand daughter has a medical condition that prevents her from sitting in the sun. Charging five dollars a day for having an extra vehicle and for guests is outrageous. Staff was very friendly.
Jul 15, 2019
The showers were ice cold and it wasn’t until after 9am when the cleaning crew showed up that the water heater was reset. By that time many campers had departed. Evidently, from comments this is not uncommon. Very little grass anywhere. Scruffy at best.
Jul 15, 2019
Above and beyond to make our experience great!! Thank you for all of your help.

It was very fun but signs and rules seem outdated. At first my 5 month old couldn’t go into the pool (with a swim diaper) which if that’s your rule fine but it needs to be posted on website. We didn’t know until we were there and wouldn’t have gone there. They eventually said ok. Also ENO is a tree friendly hammock but not allowed? Two big flaws for me. Enough to not return.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

The lifeguard objected to the baby not having a swim diaper on. The rest of the guests objected to the baby being in the pool with no bottoms on.

Nice facilities. We were there with granddaughters who really enjoyed the pool and bouncy thing. Being there on a Saturday night was nice, too, for the ice cream social and movie. Friendly and helpful staff. Cons: fire wood too expensive. Spots too close together.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

The firewood is the same price as Walmart. The county does not allow any outside firewood. Therefore at Capitol KOA you buy it where you burn it. Please help save our trees.

Excellent campground!!!

Great location close to Baltimore and Washington DC, great washrooms and showers and helpful staff!
Jul 13, 2019
Staff was friendly and helpful. Bathrooms and laundry were clean and the camp ground was relaxing and quiet. Pool and play area was great for kids. The lifeguard was great. The only drawback was the RV sites were very un-level. Took a bit of time to get our camper situated.
Jul 13, 2019
I liked the buses into Washington DC. The next time I would stop I would schedule these trips for the days I would be staying at your cammmmmmmpground.
Jul 12, 2019
Great site and the staff was friendly and helpful. Had an issue with the electric hookup, the staff acted right away to resolve the problem. Thank you and we will be back and recommend your campground as a great one to stay at.

Took 8 year old grandkids to see DC. Shuttle was handy, staff great and facilities good for and kid friendly
Jul 12, 2019
We were in a great camp site that had all of the amenities, then we had to move to a site that charged for a premium site & it didn’t even have a septic drainage. Very disappointed in the site
Jul 10, 2019
I was here after a holiday weekend and we had made reservations 4? Months before. Was given a spot not quite big enough for our camper. Had to move and put us on a site without full hookup. Spent 3 nights and looked like we could have easily had a full hookup site. Had been to 2 others before in the same week a loved the other locations.
Jul 10, 2019
We have stayed here several times and we will continue to do so. Wonderful staff!
Jul 10, 2019
This is a busy campground with alot of kids. Highlights were the giant pillow bounce thing. The swimming pool was fun accept for some crazy older lady mad that she couldn't just leave her kid in the pool alone. Was screaming at the lifeguard that her grandkid was not the guards business. We all had to get out of the pool cause nutty lady wouldnt listen and was on her phone the whole time!

The campground bathrooms, while there were plenty, were all located in the middle of the park, leaving quite a walk for us staying on the last row. Everything else was great and the location was awesome!
Jul 09, 2019
The camping was clean and well maintained. The pool medium size. The layout of the camping is kind of particular, the sites are not level. Our site was a pull through but the gentleman who accompanied us told us to back in because the bump was to high to pull through. The neighbors fire pit was to close to our RV for my liking. Very easy to get to Washington with the subway, 13$ all day pass.
Jul 09, 2019
When we arrived our campsite was horrible. I couldn’t level our Motorhome and the trees were inches from my slides. I tripped on the tree roots multiple time while running back and forth to flip the breaker of my 30 AMP service. It was definitely not producing 30 AMP service. So the next morning I called and upgraded my $88 site to a $102 site. We moved and that site was nice but very pricey.

We stayed here for 2 nights, and found the owners/staff to be very kind even when we pulled in after dark. For an RV full-hookup spot, we were in close quarters with other RVs but nothing outside the norm. Site was clean, bathrooms clean. The pool was great & well supervised, and we had a good experience overall. A great campground to stay at if you're looking to be close to D.C. or Annapolis.

Thank you. Close to DC and Annapolis, friendly staff. We enjoyed our stay. Only comment is pull through site can use some more crushed stone to prevent mud during rain.
Jul 08, 2019
Beautiful campground. Very friendly and informative staff. Nice amenities.
Jul 08, 2019
It was really nice the only bad thing is that it rained a lot at night and our lot did not have any gravel so it was muddy and flooded. Our camper was a mess after our 2 day stay.
Jul 07, 2019
Nice place, good location. No safety bars in handicap restroom or shower. Staff friendly but not flexible on possible change requests and options.
Aug 03, 2020
This campground was very well kept and we loved the pull through sites for our travel trailer. We were there Wednesday through Friday and although a good portion of spots were taken, we were surprised at how quiet it was. Staff was approachable and friendly and check in was easy and quick. Hookups were well maintained and modern. We will stay here again if we're in the area. Only 20 minutes to Kent Island and 40 minutes to Baltimore.

Beautiful and super clean. Would highly recommend staying here. However, when we booked a five night stay here they did not tell us the pool would be closec. Come on! Outside pool full of chlorine.. My highlight of the trip was to stay back and lounge by the pool while the resr of my family went sight seeing. VERY disappointed. Don't tell me it's for my own good. I would sign a waver. Let me decide.
