  • A nice ( and only ) place to camp close to DC. Facilities are minimal, but satisfactory. The shower in the scout loop consists of one stall. It would better serve the size of the area to have 2 at min...  more »

  • Campground is quite good. I really like the fact that they keep a bunch of sites for walk-ins, the rest is bookable online. The staff is nice and regularly checks around. It felt safe. But be prepared to line up for the showers! There was only on shower in the loop, and it got cold! Better facilities would make this place a gem.
  • Just came back from a two night scouting trip, camped in loop A. Facilities are fine, we had a large pack and did not feel over crowded. However, ticks we're a huge issue. Likely we just hit the prime season for them, but... We pulled 5 or 6 off my son, most very small (we think lone star ticks, nymphs), 2 off my husband and 1 off me. Yes, we used DEET bug spray. Made for a very creepy crawly experience.
  • Great open field for frisbee or just getting some fresh air. Good hiking trails in the woods. You feel really out in nature even though you're pretty close to a busting suburb
  • Stayed for 2 night camping trip and for first timers we enjoyed ourselves. The restroom and shower facilities were in good shape and I appreciated the park staff checking on us periodically. As stated previously by other reviewers-it is noisy due to planes, cars and nature however we would still return.
  • Stayed here 9 days to explore DC. Beautiful campground but poor upkeep. I am pleased to say that when I emailed a complaint about the dirty bathroom /showers it was quickly taken care of! So nice to escape the DC madness in the peaceful surroundings. Beware of the ticks, our dog was very kind in sharing his with us every day after his walks! They did not like his trifexis so they transferred to us! Ugh. The greenbelt Metro was intimidating for us 1st timers but the staff & locals were very helpful & we loved the convenience! After 1 trip we felt like pros!
