Kern River Vacation Trailers: what do users think?


Amie Allman: This business is not closed. They are very open and charging erroneous fees. There was a miscommunication about whether or not we wanted to proceed with our rental. My card was charged on June 18th for 3 trailers with no receipt or contract given. When I called the next morning the owner was quite nice and refunded the full price of the trailers. This was a good thing because during our conversation she mentioned that one of the ones we reserved might not be available. Glad we didn't find that out when we arrived to the campground! There was also a fee of $190.25 that the owner did not know about. She had no record of the fee and could not figure out how to refund me so I told her I was going to do a chargeback which she agreed was best because she could not refund something she didn't charge. Quite hard to believe but I did the chargeback. Then I checked my card this morning and discovered that the fee was charged again on July 4th! I now have to cancel my card 5 days before my trip and I did another chargeback. I called them to give them the opportunity to do the right thing and the owner never called me back. Too bad! Thank goodness for credit card protection. Truly the twilight zone.

Cherry Hill Park: what do users think?


Eric Isaacson: I had high expectations and they were well met. So much of the staff was just so friendly and actually trying to make sure we enjoyed our stay. I even saw a lifeguard smiling while watching kids play in the pool. They're just happy and helpful and care. The facilities were great. We played in the pool, did laundry, enjoyed their out door movie night, played on multiple playgrounds, and sat in the hot tub. You'll want to make sure you have a support slinky for your sewer hose though as their drain pipes are a little elevated. also, just a heads up that the Cherry Hill bus line that starts and ends at the gate is not super dependable and just doesn't show sometimes, twice for us. That's not the campgrounds fault, just a heads up for visitors. On this trip, we've seen Mt. Rushmore, the Statue of Liberty, the Gateway Arch, the National Mall, and the Smithsonian Zoo (to name a few) but Cherry Hill is the favorite destination for some of my kids and in the top few for all of them. This was a sad place to move out of as we continued our trip. Thank you!
Response: Thanks, Eric, it makes us so happy to hear that you and your family were treated well at our campground. We love our staff, and we're so glad they made such a positive impact on your stay!

Gigliotti Family: Great RV resort with lots of amenities and close to DC. We stayed for 3 nights over Easter. Sites are a little small but very clean. Bathhouses were close and also very clean. We had planned on going into DC 2 separate days but there was so much to do at the resort and our kids were having so much fun we decided to stay at the campground for 1 of the days instead of going into DC. The transportation offered to the metro was excellent and so convenient! Being novice campers, we forgot a few things but the general store at the campground had everything we needed. The cafe also has excellent food! We will definitely be back!!
Response: Thanks for camping with us - we're happy to hear your family enjoyed the amenities so much! See you next time :)

Kellie Fischer: We brought our RV in at night and they were very accommodating to helping us find our site. Jon was so kind and helpful to us our whole stay. We really appreciated his help and conversation! The location was fabulous! The young man in the camp store gave us exact directions into Washington DC and even assisted in loading subway cards so I didn't have to fuss with getting them at subway station. Great customer service! Thank you Cherry Hill Park!
Response: We agree, Jon rocks! We will pass on the compliment. We're so glad our staff helped make your trip easy and relaxing!

Desi Jerry: The camp grounds was immaculate, bathrooms were clean at all times! We stayed in the premium tent site that were well worth the extra fee. Having the lawn chairs and gazebo was wonderful… Our family will stay here again! Location was close to stores if you needed to pick up groceries. The site also supplied Ice and wood delivery!
Response: We're so glad you enjoyed the premium tent sites - thanks for camping with us, Desi!

Michael Kraxberger: What a great place! The campgrounds are huge, but because of the segmented areas, it still has a small park feel - depending on where you are located. Some areas are quite tight and look crowded, others a little more spacious. Location is everything - this is 5 minutes from the Metro station (actually 2, we always went to Greenbelt station) which will take you anywhere inside the beltway, several downtown locations, and even to Mt. Vernon. The campground also has several private tours directly into DC - we took the night tour, which was a marked difference in the standard group tour. Grounds - exceptionally maintained. Amenities - beyond expectations. DC highlights seminar at 4:00 every day - fantastic content and helpful advice about the city. 2 pools, Hot tub, and sauna, two laundry rooms, clean, spacious, well-lit bathhouses, kids programs, gated access - all above standard. This is one of the best in the country!
Response: Wow, Michael, thanks so much! We're really glad you were impressed with us, and we hope we helped make your trip to DC everything it could be. Thanks for camping with us!

Angeli: Everything was Excellent! The customer service was great. Everyone my husband and I dealt with that worked at the campground was very friendly , helpful and welcoming. The facilities ( Bathhouses) the shower stalls were keep pristine, there were very good water pressure and plenty of hot water. All of the amenities were obviously well maintained, The pool, Splash pad, miniature Golf, Basketball Court. The campground at Cherry Hill Park is a beautiful place with many areas of peaceful tranquility so you can really relax. Also the roadways are well paved and lighted to make driving at night around the campground or even walking around at night quite comfortable. We used a tent and our site #116 was great. plenty of room for our vehicle, tent and lounge chairs. A picnic table and fire was provided. Thank you to everyone at Cherry Hill Campgounds. My husband and I really enjoyed ourselves and are already planning a return trip later this year.
Response: We're so glad you enjoyed your trip, Angeli! Sounds like we'll see you again soon :)

Shelli Echave: Park was wonderful! The staff was super friendly and helpful, the grounds were very clean and well maintained. The laundry and showers were conveniently located and reasonably priced. The metro bus made it easy to connect to the metro line for the ride into DC. Overall, I couldn't be happier with my stay.
Response: Thanks, Shelli, we're so glad to hear that!

Jeff Dykie: Our family stayed here in a travel trailer. We chose Cherry Hill Park because of how close it is to Washington DC. Cherry Hill is fabulous! We have stayed at many campgrounds and this was one of the nicest. The pride the owners and employees have in this campground is evident when you first enter. There really are no "bad" sites. A lot to do, great store. Went to DC on the express bus, very convenient. We already booked for next summer!
Response: Thanks, Jeff - we're so glad to hear you'll be joining us again next year!

Ashley Savina: Love this park! I stayed in the couple' style dog friendly pod and it was one of the cleanest places I've stayed. It was nice having the climate control, electricity, bed, table/chairs, mini fridge and microwave for more of a "glamping" experience. It was nice having shelter during the rain as well. You do hear traffic from the highway which was like white noise to me but for some it might take away from wanting to enjoy "peace and quiet" The bath house was very clean too.This camp ground is well taken care of. Lots of activities around the park, I can't wait to come back!
Response: Thanks Ashley - we're so glad you enjoyed the pod!

Eric Wolf: This was our second trip to Cherry Hill. We were here 5 years ago and stayed in a cabin, that has since been upgraded to a Yurt. This time we came in our own camper. We would highly recommend and will definitely return when we want to visit DC again. The convenience of the location is unbeatable. They do run a bus from the campground to the nearest metro station. We opted to drive our truck to the Greenbelt station and park for a $4.95 flat rate during the week, free on weekends and get a 3 - day metro pass ($28.00) We could not have been happier with this decision. The drive in on weekdays to DC was routinely showing 1 hour on google maps. The Campground has definitely made many improvements since we were last here. The pool is a fun spot, the dog park is great, the mini golf is as good as any that would pay to go to. (there is a $1 fee per person) I was glad to pay as it kept kids from just congregating there. The workers were all very friendly. We ended up in the middle of a large group of campers who told us they were there to party. Party they did, but the campground was on top of them and shut them down promptly at 10 p.m. every day. The bathhouses were clean and maintained, as is the whole campground. It is very well kept up. The store is well stocked with groceries and essentially an RV parts store. The only negative is that there is a fair bit of highway noise, but we were okay with that since we were so close to DC.
Response: Thanks for sharing your experience with us, Eric. We agree that the Metro is the best way to avoid the often traffic-y drive into DC. We are so happy to hear that we were on top of enforcing our quiet hours - we've implemented a ranger program over the past couple of years to address this exact issue, and we're so pleased with our excellent team! We appreciate you camping with us, and we hope we'll see you again next time you're traveling in our area!

Adventure Bound Camping Resorts - Washington DC: what do users think?


Tiffany Belcher: This is a quiet place to enjoy the outdoors. Plenty of amenities (laundry, pool, playground, etc) to keep everyone happy. People are very kind and accommodating. There are short and long-term campers here. A little out of the way but still close to plenty of local comforts. There’s a nice Dutch market nearby too (very limited hours so plan accordingly).

Travis S: Very laid back. Very quiet. Definitely great for long term camping. I work construction. So we are longer-term. Good value on the cabin and trailers for rent. I was able to get most of crew a place to stay here. Close to the city but far enough away you don't have to deal with the city. I would recommend this place to anyone. The staff has always been very helpful and accommodating.
Response: Thank you for your review, Travis! We're happy to hear you had a very pleasant stay with us, and we hope to see you again!

Katie Baber: Very welcoming campground! The staff and community are amazing! The place could use a little work, but the campground has been hard at work making great changes since I got here in November! Absolute best place in the area!
Response: Thank you for your wonderful review, Katie!

Robert Rudis: ****NOT DIRECTED TOWARDS MANAGER ANDREW AND STAFF**** You as a corporate management team should be ashamed of how you have destroyed this campground. Look at the pictures from when Duncan owned until you have. The lack of funding given to this campground for capital improvements and amenities for customers is beyond shameful. In the Rental Community you are known as a slum lord. Pot Holes throughout No operational pool 3 years Dogs biting people and other dogs are allowed to stay Cabins and trailers who have had over dosed heroin addicts. Excessive road noise of Dump trucks and dirt bikes Adultery's No landscaping and lawn maintenance Excessive rent and rate hikes with no amenities in return Excessive electricity mark ups Other Campers sites kept unsightly with trash and debris Trees falling on campers On and On I can go Thieves/Extortion and Slum lords

Krista Webb: I agree with another recent review. One star for friendly staff (so friendly that I felt too bad to complain about our horrible stay). One star for clean bathrooms. Please note that the lock on bathroom stall 2 does not work sometimes. Those are the only positives I can give this place. I guess I would add a half-star if I could for the game room. At least it was air-conditioned, but the equipment needs updating. There was only one paddle for ping pong, the darts for the electric dart board were broken, all but one of the pool sticks were broken, and the fuse ball table was put together wrong with the skews that hold the different colored players in the wrong place. The pool is green and inoperable...this needs to be mentioned on the website as the main activity for many families while camping is swimming. There did appear to be working laundry facilities. I was given site 76 with electric for my tent so I could blow up my air mattress. It was a grassy spot next to the front gate and main roads which appeared to be one of about 5 available spots in the whole campground not occupied by long term residents or rental campers/cabins. The grass had grown up to mid-calf and was uncomfortably itchy. They did mow around my tent on day 2, but that just created a mess of grass clippings to track into my tent. There was no fire ring or picnic table at the one spot I was assigned. The residents were loud and the noise from the street and surrounding neighbors even louder. I should have spoken up, but instead I left very disappointed and felt robbed of $138 for two uncomfortable nights on a patch of grass with minimal amenities. People...save your time and get your money's worth...stay in a hotel.

Donna Schmitt: Before I wrote this review, I went back and read some prior reviews to see if the problems we noticed were recent or long-term. My impression is that this place has been on a slow decline since being purchased by Adventure Bound. The place has a lot of potential because it is nice shaded spots and is in a good location for visiting the area - campgrounds near DC are hard to come by. HOWEVER - the place is basically a dump at this point. Most of the campsites have long-term campers in them and their sites are rundown. the pool was GREEN with algae at the bottom. The buildings looked run down and in bad need of paint. We didn't have a picnic table but in walking around, the picnic tables looked they were falling apart. There was nothing "resort" about this place. If they want to have "campers" versus residents they need to move the full-time people to one part of the park and have a designated area for "campers" and fix the place up.. I DO NOT RECOMMEND. I did not go in the bathrooms so cannot report on them. There is a really nice KOA in Millersvile that we have stayed in before - but it is farther from the points we want to visit so we tried this place. Will not do it again.

Janine Roberts: One gold star for clean bathrooms One gold star for friendly staff and fire ant control Minus 2 stars for not being able to sleep Minus one star for broken pool not mentioned when booking days prior to our stay For tent camping in my opinion they could of done a better job carving out a nicer area. The tent sites are right by the front gate. This camp ground has a ton of traffic an the gate sounds like a baby T-Rex ALL hours of the night. The pool is broken but we did see people working on that issue. The bathrooms were as clean as you would expect with hot water, power outlets and A/C but one bathroom had a busted lock an someone walked in while I was in the shower, (would of showered in the other bathroom but someone else was using it). Camp was close to the attractions and things we wanted to do in the area while passing through, I'd say that's the only plus side to this experience. Recommend bringing EAR PLUGS if u want peace when trying to sleep.

Linda Lehmann: We requested an overnight site so we would not have to unhook. Indicated to the woman on the phone we were towing a 32 foot camper. When we arrived we were given a back in site. When we got to site 125 it was literally big enough for a pop up. We had to finagle the camper sideways next to the road. We only had electric and water and was charged $79 for the night. We had a hard time leveling the camper but with some ingenuity we got it level. It was obvious no one has camped there in a long time. The grass hadn’t been mowed and the general appearance of the campground is run down and dirty. The swimming pool was green. The bathrooms and showers were disgusting, Not sure what diseases were in them. I would not recommend this campground and will never return. Definitely overpriced.
Response: I'm sorry to hear you did not have a 5-star stay. Please tell us more about your visit on our contact page. Thank you. https://www.abcamping.com/

alexis b: Me and my family booked a night at this campground and it was honestly not the best. When we booked our night the lady on the phone gave us a site number I believe in the 190’s however, when we got here they completely changed the site we were staying at without our knowledge and so suddenly. Anyway, we brought our bathing suits expecting to go swimming until we saw how dirty the pool water was (which was green) at least on the phone it’d be nice to know if the pool was open or not. There’s also minor things like our campsite was really cramped, it didn’t have that much space and we were right next to our neighbors sewer hookup. I don’t recommend this loooovely campground. I’ve been to better places.
Response: I'm sorry to hear you did not have a 5-star stay. Please tell us more about your visit on our contact page. Thank you. https://www.abcamping.com/

Pieter Ras: Not a recreational campground to visit with a family which is probably why they mostly have long term renters. Overpriced for what you get.

Fletcher's Cove: what do users think?


Rosie: I loved this place. Set my portable hammock in the shade and let the day pass by. Plenty of families enjoying the place but not too crowded. Watch out for the ducks and their dropping in the grass. Go for a walk in the trial then relax and unwind here.

Riley E: Beautiful park with trails and lovely views of the river. Lots of trash though, hopefully people are more careful to pack out what they pack in. Imagine how much cooler the park would be if folks didn't litter. Got some seriously lush greenery there, it's a shame it's dotted with cans and food wrappers.

Leah Lambart: Fun park to bring kids and dogs. We had a fun time exploring this park and hiking trails. The trails were muddy at points but we walked in sneakers without any problem. They had many fishermen fishing off the side of the banks. It’s a great view of the river and nature. There’s plenty of things for kids to climb on and explore.

Johny Mccahill: Fletchers cove is a great place.You can find parking for your car or bike and look over the river and relax.Rent a boat and grab a snack and put in to enjoy nature along the shore and see ospreys and other wildlife abundantly.

Rose Schaum: I'm always looking for parks along the river and this one along B&O and Potomac is really rustic and fun. It can be a little confusing your first time going there, I suggest you do a little direction research ahead of your outing. Biking and hiking trails, kayak and canoe rentals, picnic tables with some stationary grills and spots for campfires. Dogs on leashes are very welcome. The restrooms are at the upper parking area. The larger parking area is down by the river past upper parking lot just go straight over tiny bridge when entering.

Susan Reinhardt: Enjoyed a guided kayak tour on the Potomac on a spring evening just before sunset. Beautiful views, decent boats, and nice guides. A little pricey but worth it. We saw a bald eagle along the shore which let our boats drift nearer to him. Very cool!

Lauri Pesantez Pacheco: Beautiful place! To park there the car must go under a tunnel and there is a height limit. There is a boat/kayak rental and can use their ramp for personal kayaks for 5 dollars. There is also a free launching site that doesn’t have a ramp but is pretty easy to use.

Amjad Ibrahim: Really nice area I definitely recommend for a picnic and fishing

beyondTabu: It has potential. Parking is sufficient, kayak/ canoe rental does the job. There’re multiple bbq pits and a nice area to relax. The issues are there’re no trash bins so people leave their trash on the trails and there’re way too many hooks and lines left behind from anglers. They authorities need to have more patrols to fine people who litter etc.

Jake Jacobs: Great area to go to for a walk along the canal. Short walks are fine, but if you're someone who likes to put some milage on your walking shoes, you can walk along the canal for several miles. Also great views of the Potomac River along the way.

Pohick Bay Regional Park: what do users think?


Amanda McHugh: A great park with lots to do - easy to spend a whole day here. There’s a gorgeous lake that you can enjoy (boating, fishing, etc.). Paddle boards, canoes/kayaks, and some other non-motorized water equipment is available for rent or you can bring your own. There’s a boat drop available (small fee charged upon entering the park) and a smaller launch site for things like kayaks and paddle boards. There are pavilions with grills available for reservation, a disc golf course, and a water park for the kiddos. There are also some hiking/walking trails. Don’t sleep on this park - it’s great!
Response: Thank you Amanda! We're glad you enjoyed your visit to Pohick Bay Regional Park! We hope you come back and visit us again very soon!

Abby Berk: Amazing camping experience! We had a wonderful time. The weather was perfect, the campsite are so spacious (we stayed in a non-electric site). Their grounds were well kept and lovely. They had an outdoor movie night that was such a fun surprise! We bought all our firewood from the campstore - it was such high quality wood, easy to light, easy to get more if needed! We played their disc golf course. I love that they sell discs in the camp store. It was a nice course, great for beginners. A nice amount in the sun and in the shade. We also tried a few if their trails! They were so fun! Tons of dogs and kids. The acorns were a little exciting on the trails- I recommend a good tread on your shoes. We will definitely be coming back! I can't wait until next year to try out their kayaks.
Response: Thank you Abby! We're glad you enjoyed your visit to Pohick Bay campground! We hope you come back and camp with us again very soon!

Mike E.: Our early Spring visit was beautiful. Few people on the trails (we saw one guy over two hours of walking multiple trails). Lovely trail system so you can piece together any length. Great for hiking and fairly non-technical trail running. Some hills, but just enough to get your heart going and make you feel alive. We'll be back for sure.
Response: Thank you Mike! We're glad you enjoyed your visit to Pohick Bay Regional Park! We look forward to welcoming you back!

Louise Brady: We only experienced the youth group campsite with the cub scouts and half of the red trail but it was fantastic. Looking to come back and explore more another weekend. We saw multiple frogs, and a baby caterpillar.
Response: Thank you Louise! We're glad you enjoyed your visit to Pohick Bay Regional Park! We look forward to welcoming you back!

Josh Williams: We love stopping by the park for the putt putt golf, the water park in the summer, and the playground is nice for the kiddos. Always a fun place to stop by with the family to get away from the hussle and bustle of Northern Virginia
Response: Thank you Josh! We're glad you enjoyed your visit to Pohick Bay Regional Park! We look forward to welcoming you and your family back!

Daniel Hudson: Very family friendly. Lots to do in one place and everything I have tried has been great. Disc golf course is a little more open now after a few trees had to be taken down due to a storm. Beginner friendly and a great place to learn. Be ready to hit some trees!
Response: Thank you Daniel! We're glad you enjoyed your visit to Pohick Bay Regional Park and enjoyed your disc golf course!

John Varney: Great campground, with lots of extra amenities! Primitive camping all the way through "tour bus" sites with full hookups. Family and pet friendly! We will definitely be staying here again.
Response: Thank you John! We're glad you enjoyed your visit to Pohick Bay Campground! We look forward to welcoming you back very soon!

Ajisai Purple: I was really surprised there was a lot of wildlife. Really nice campground but glass was all over my site when I arrived. I tried cleaning it up. The bathrooms were muddy. Faucets were too close to the edge.
Response: Thank you Ajisai! We're glad you enjoyed your visit to Pohick Bay Campground. We apologize for the glass in your campground. In the future please contact the park manager for any issues you may encounter. We want to make sure your camping experience is the best as possible.

My Hanitizer: Lovely to visit, hike, do water activities and kids can be kids on the playground. I wasn't sure if they had grills but we had tons of fun and went on kayak it was fun. The girls saw horses that was sweet!
Response: Thank you! We're so glad you and your family had a wonderful day at Pohick Bay Regional Park. We hope you come back and visit us again very soon!

Amanda Parks: A great family fun day awaits you at Pirate's Cove. Cool off on a hot day in their relaxing pools. There's plenty to do here and delicious food as well. Enjoy!
Response: Thank you Amanda! We're glad you enjoyed your visit to Pirate's Cove Waterpark! We hope you come back and visit us for another day of endless summer fun!

Washington DC / Capitol KOA Holiday: what do users think?


RandThrockM: Good place to getaway and relax. Bathroom and showers we're well maintained. Campsites a little close to each other but neighbors were friendly. Hiking trail not bad, need more and clear markings as well as bushes need to be trimmed some on the path. Inside the registration/store we met one of the best workers there, sorry feel bad can't remember this older gentleman's name. Very helpful and polite throughout our whole stay, definitely deserves kudos for going over and beyond his job. 👍🏽 If staying longer, there are some good shopping and activities nearby.

Nicole Neumann: I would rate this place 0 stars if I could. The staff was not friendly/helpful at ALL. My family and I live in our camper and are just passing through the DC area. Thank GOD it is only a 2 night stay. My kids went to the jump pad and I was sitting outside of my camper watching them, however the staff would not allow that. Even though, there were 3 other kids on the jump pad with no parents in sight. I was at least watching my children. Once the staff decided to tell me they could not jump unless I was STANDING at the fence line, we tried to mention that there were other children up there with no parents around and instead of having a grown up conversation, the staff decided to drive away on their golf cart in the middle of us talking to them. They were extremely rude. The staff is truly watching your every step, so if you like having baby sitters, then by all means, this is the campground for you. On top of the unfriendly staff, the facility is filthy. The pool is now open for the summer and the water is GREEN. You would think after being closed all winter, they would have had it cleaned and ready for opening week. I would NEVER stay here again, nor would I even recommend this campground to my worst enemy.

Mia Fish: It was good enough for what we needed. It was off season and we were happy to get a place to stay. Our spot wasn’t great due to the size of our rig and the spot was up an incline then we had to go back and forth to find most level spot. Other spots much more level but in all fairness we might have asked for this spot not realizing how it was in real life. Easy to get to in snd out. No narrow barriers. You can unhook right outside check in office. I’d definitely stay again.

Anne Byrnes: Worst experience at a KOA ever. We found one staff member to be blatantly rude and condescending during our stay. He was abrasive and challenging to my husband in tone and manner. It was totally inappropriate and unnecessary. The showers and restrooms have bugs everywhere. They keep the doors to these areas open 24 hrs a day so anything could crawl into the area. Disgusting. The water is cold and the shower stalls so small you can't move. Overall the place is dirty. We've always stayed at KOA campgrounds and never had this type of experience prior. Keep driving and avoid this place.

Lill_Ginge: After staying here, my views on this location are severely altered. Aside from the low cost and distance to the city, everything was negitve, the largest problems being with a complete lack of hot water in the showers and sink. It was also next to a large highway and a airport which isn't really the "camping adventure" anyone is looking for. While my stay was enjoyable, this was only due to my family's presence.

Dr. Mott: Capital KOA only receives 1 star. We stayed at a "premium site" ($100). We arrived to a dirty fire ring and a non working grill. They cleaned the fire ring and disassembled the grill but never fixed it. They left the gas on and it smelled terrible so I turned it off. Most of the staff is polite but a few are indifferent. The bathrooms were not cleaned frequently but were not terrible. I stay here twice a year every year but will not be back. It's not worth the price even though the location is central to DC, Annapolis and Baltimore.

Julie Moore: My daughter came down with a fever the day before our arrival. She also developed a cough. We called to cancel our reservations to do the right thing even though of course we were disappointed to not have our family vacation. I called ahead, but it was not 48 hours ahead. We would have called 48 hours if she fell ill the day before. I was told that I would be charged the first night. The receptionist said that she would speak to the manager and she was sure that given the circumstances, it would be refunded. I still have not been refunded and I've called several times to resolve this. I would have used the site and kept our distance if we had known that we would have not been refunded. I am very disappointed in this KOA. Seems like they would rather people come sick than encourage people to do the right thing.

MaryBeth L: I’ve been a slacker about my reviews but I’m making a point to leave a review because clearly some of the issues haven’t been resolved. We stayed in March. Staff did not make clear what check in process was and i didn’t personally hear from them until I contacted them that there was no hot water in the showers. We were told they were “on the list” and it should be fixed next week and in the mean time to use the showers by the pool. Clearly that hasn’t been resolved. Also - the name is a misnomer because it’s nearly an HOUR to get into the Capitol area most days. I’d stay here again if I had to but it won’t be my first choice. I let them keep 3 stars because the sites were level, they had FHU and facilities - even if they weren’t very useful, and they had a playground.

Dean Krebs: They had no hot water in the rest rooms. I was very happy to be able to shower in our trailer. I have, however, stayed there many times in the past going back to the late 70s with our children and grandchildren and had wonderful times, so I won't give up on them for one bad week.

Alecia Burke: Update: they charged my debit card without authorization because I was a guest to a camper and I left after 12. I never signed anything so this is illegal. This KOA leaves a lot to be desired. Some of the staff were nice, some, not so much! Rules changed depending on who you spoke to, and so did prices. Guests went from $10 (5 per person) to $15 (5 per person and per car). The pool was closed for the season (we visited in JUNE). Not worth the price. Poorly planned sites that are close to each other and have no pathways in between, so you have to walk ALL the way around all of the sites to get to the playground, if you're parked in the middle of the campground. The playground didn't have enough gravel, so you can see the very bottom of the playground (the part that's supposed to be buried). I would not stay here again and would not recommend it.

Rock Creek Park: what do users think?


Maame N: Great picnic areas. Spacious and clean spaces. Bathrooms were relatively clean for a park. No funky smell, well lit, and ac controlled. Kayaking, pedal boat, and row boat available on the lake. Playgrounds are really nice. Home/bike trail available too.

Mike Jones: A jewel in the heart of DC. A great escape from the city within the city. Great for biking, hiking, picnicking, bird watching, golfing, and more. I'm so grateful to live 5 minutes from Rock Creek for the past 25 years.

Kenneth Kilgour: Rock Creek Park is an underappreciated DC treasure. It's lousy with wildlife. It's tranquil. And it's nearby. Rock Creek has a nature center, hiking trails, and picnic areas, some with pavilions. Some of the roadways are closed to motor vehicles. Please do not feed the ducks; it violated Park Service rules, and it's harmful to the ducks, besides.

Dawn Anacleto-Tosca: Rock Creek is a total jem in the middle of DC. I love it there so much. So many awesome trails & for as long as I've been going I always find new trails and see new areas.

Esther Y: You can park anywhere with a picnic area. However, traffic can get pretty bad during the day. Lots of trees! There is also a biking path on the side :)

Rosie C: A great place to hike especially during the fall. There are different routes you can take all ranging in distance and intensity. Make sure you get back to your car before dark.

Jason Williams: One of my favorite parks in the DMV area. I've never had issues with parking and it's not as congested on the weekend as many other parks. The scenery is beautiful and I've never noticed any trash or water bottles lying around anywhere throughout the short time I've been coming here. It's a nice way to escape the feeling of being in DC without actually leaving DC.

Joe J.: This relatively large, beautiful park located in the city of Washington DC is a nice escape from the bustles and noises. There are a few nice spots like the amphitheater and a few trails that definitely shouldn't be missed. Overall, I find it amazing to have such a nice nature retreat in the middle of the city with such greenery. This place looks amazing in the summer with green leaves everywhere. The creek is also nice to follow!

Jessica Long: Beautiful paved trails. Wooded trails that were by the creek. It wasn’t the clearest which direction to go to stay in the main wooded region because there weren’t easily accessible or visualized signs with route maps. But lots of ground to discover.

EDP: Love this park. I wish I had more time to discover more of the location. There’s one section closed off to traffic which made it much more enjoyable.

Swains Lock Hiker/Biker Campsite: what do users think?


Hunter Long: I was there just this Sunday 6*26*22. When it was 98° out you didn't feel any of it in the shade at the campsite sitting by the water it was some cool 75°. Great place to overnight 🏕 for free. You can day 🏕, sit out in the hammock grill out. Just a great place to explore. You can fish if you want, you can kayak, canoe there's a small Island to visit by water transportation. Just a very good place for family friends or alone.

Nicholas Montalto: Great primitive campsite we have used a few different times! Set in vicinity of the old swains lock lock house. You can even reserve a stay in the building or camp on one of the five overnight camping sites. Plenty to do and not that far away from great falls if you want to hike down and back and check out the falls from the MD side.

David Harris: This campsite had a day-use area on one side and 5 campsites, each with a picnic table and a fire pit. Not very much available firewood on the ground (quite picked over), but lots across the canal in the wooded area (nearby bridge makes that easy). Beautiful view of river but difficult access (steep banks about 10 feed straight down for most of it). Lovely flocks of merganser ducks and canada geese in late Nov in the morning. 4-5 port-a-potties up by the C&O path, campsite is downhill from it. Try to arrive with some daylight left or else it is difficult to find exactly where the campsites are.

Harley Johnson: What a beautiful, quiet, and small campsite. It’s really tucked in and hidden behind a trail, which means it can be quiet, but also have a lot of foot traffic. There are no more than 8 sites so be sure to get your spot locked in! I LOVE that this is right along the river. It’s also incredibly close to Great Falls, if you want to walk 3.5 miles on the towpath to get there.

Mark Perschel: It is so convenient to the road that it is a little to accessible. Other that that it is a beautiful area and sets up for a nice bicycle ride into DC...

John Ainsworth: Benn coming here since I was kid. Great place to look at old history. Very difficult concerning parking.

Lewis Bryant: Great place to chill, camp, hike or bike. My new go to spot. Just wish it wasn't so far from me and the parking is very limited.

BabyFUG: Nice place, free camping. Only downside is the bathroom doesn't get cleaned enough and is always out of toilet paper.

Smokey Beard: Great spot to camp especially if you want to bike to Washington DC the next day only 18. Mile marker 26 next camp sits going north has better water access. Watch out for the crazy squirrel he will bite right through your bags even tent if you keep food close enough. Lot of mosquitos bring bug spray or you will be eaten alive. I never use bug spray but had no choice this time.

Robert Dickson: The wind exacerbates the cold in the winter, but overall this is a nice spot to stay along the canal towpath.

Treehouse Camp At Maple Tree: what do users think?


Elaine Peiffer: Such a great place! The cabin is clean and well kept. There are real bathrooms should you need them and hit showers! The staff was friendly and helpful. Thanks to Nick who helped us make this a camping trip truly amazing!

Cari K: Peaceful mountain campground, built into side of mountain, .6 miles off AT, showers, toilets, water, many choices of camping in three season wood tree houses with bunks, fully enclosed cabins, awesome after hour check in service. Wonderful sunsets since you face west. 15 min to harpers ferry by car, about 3 hrs by way of the AT. Caretakers keep it clean, peaceful and welcoming.

Terry Jones: We stayed in the Hobbit House, the place was very clean, very nice and the person that we talked to at the office was very pleasant and helpful. I'd recommend highly for anyone who really enjoys primitive camping, I'm personally more of a glamper, and prefer a little more amenities. However overall we mostly enjoyed our experience.

J Kennedy: Clean cabin and bathrooms. Cabin had bunks with mattresses, wood stove for cold nights, and picnic table. Close to AT. Staff was friendly and helpful. Great place to stay warm and dry. Family friendly. Highly recommend!

Catherine “Kate” Richards: Will always love this spot . We had Willow cottage this time … don’t expect anything posh .. just the great luxury of having a camping experience with a roofed area and WARMTH. The folks that run this spot are terrific .. the location is great .. super quiet in the late fall and winter. Endless trails for all levels of hiking . A great spot for an escape

Lisa Schneider: So. Much. Fun!!!!!!! The owners are SUPER friendly and go out of their way for anything! We forgot foil and they went and got us some! The bathrooms were cozy, toasty and clean. The cabins were warm comfortable and the VIEWS! The best part is how quiet it is. We wanted a weekend to unwind and restart away from all the craziness and that's just what we got. Everyone's super considerate. The hikes surrounding the camp site are beautiful & lots of pet friendly restaurants too. We had both dogs and there was at least 10 food places near that allowed dogs. But we cooked out majority of the time with the nice grills they have for each site. Day one we decided this will be a yearly get away for us and we even are planning to get the surrounding two cabins for our siblings and their kids, so we can all have a camping trip together. Highly recommend, and it's family owned. What a better place to vacation at!

Kelly RCee: Such a lovely way to camp! We opted for the tree cottage instead of fussing with a tent, and we loved it! My beloved has been there several times but this was my first time, and it did not disappoint! The proprietors were kind and accommodating, and the facilities were sparkling clean! I truly cannot wait to return next fall, and every fall as long as I can!

Katie Myers: We had a great experience staying in the Bonsai Cottage. We loved the layout, an the fire pit outside. It was a nice family friendly campground an we can not wait to go back! Definitely a place worth checking out.

Inday wakwak: I was here camping, making a reservation was smooth and easy. I spoke to Abby and she was so helpful and nice, she assigned me to the beech house which she said it’s the oldest among all the tree houses “which is ok with me” there was a little problem regarding the wood stove pipe but I called the office and Nick came over to fixed the problem, he was a nice guy. I really like the ambience, wooded area nice settings, 11pm is No loud noise time which campers are following the rules. The only downside in this beech house is a little close to the road where you can hear the cars passing by, but there’s a map in the website you can see and choose the tree house away from the road a lot of choices. I can’t remember if Abby mentioned that to me or not. But over all its very nice, I camp all over the place and been camping for years and I just started filming all my camping adventures and if you wonder what my experienced in this campground you can check out my YouTube channel “Inday Wakwak” I really had a blast in this campground very nice, next time I will visit here I will try there firefly house or wooded tent site. I love camping using hot tent and hot stove so this is something I have to ask if I’m allowed. But if you are near this area pls check this out. I drove 3hrs and half to experienced the beauty of there tree house. Take care guys God bless.

M.Wayne Grimm: Awesome place about a 5+ minute hike west off the AT but well worth it! Host family is awesome, and they have some refeshing beverages and hot showers for hikers. Some poison ivy spotted around our tent campsite so be careful not to wander in the brush ...
Response: Hello Wayne, thanks for kind words, glad you enjoyed being here. Yes, we keep poison ivy far out of the sites and off paths, but, it is in the woods, so people who are allergic should stay in site and on designated paths only. Thanks for the review!

Larry Gouge: This is our third time staying here. We love it. The staff are very helpful and courteous. Marisol did a great job keeping us updated with any changes and the entire staff was so positive and upbeat. The rooms do need some updating but the location is great. We stayed here because one of our kids was attending a sports camp.

Phil Kraft: Ten of us made plans to have dinner at Middleton's before taking a short cruise from the Annapolis harbor for New Year's 2020. Thinking it would be a late night we decided to stay in Annapolis. Two of our friends are retired Navy and suggested the Navy Getaway. They procured 5 rooms all which were excellent. Our facility was a 2 room suite with a living room area and separate bedroom which we used to host a get together before going to dinner. Check in was good with great recommendations offered by the friendly staff. Our suite was excellent, well kept and nicely decorated. The bed was super comfortable and made for a good sleep after our New Year's celebration. Highly recommend if you are military or have friends that are.

Frank Mckinney: Wonderful accommodations and arrangements. Very attractive! Wonderful staff.

Joseph Bowman: Great place to stay and my wife and I loved that it is with in walking distance of some really great restaurants.

Susan Powell: Must be a DOD employee or service member to stay here. Very nice, simple accommodations.

Donna Dempsey: Comfortable and quiet. Great staff. Very convenient to town.

Dan Boelsche: Wonderful. Clean. Friendly. Will return.

Douglas Shuey: The room was fantastic and the service was amazing.

Thomas Rollow: On the yard. Easy after hours check in. Parking permits issued.

Patricia Bloh: Beautiful. Must have connection to the Naval Academy

Yax Ganzero: Not long after booking, I noticed news about servere thunderstorm and flush warning. But they said park will remain open and people can camp, so here I am not a living creature thats appeared to be here. Tip: first timer be aware, this place is full of tree it can protect you from light rains but when it's windy and thunderstorm, it could destroy you and your tent.

Tatiana Russell: “Urban” campground close to the road and camping shop. It’s fairly compact and easy to find - across from a beautiful lake

CHRIS VANWINKLE: Just returned from 4 days at site B30. It’s a nice camp ground, the store and attractions are ONLY OPEN FRIDAY SAT and SUN, so if you are camping during the week you are on your own for ice and wood. Be very aware of falling branches from the trees, one of which hit my daughters car , no damage. The tent sites are on very sloping ground so be prepared with water mitigation systems. Bath houses are fine and well cleaned, water spigot is there as well as trash can and electricity. Great trail around the lake for mountain bike, jogging and a fitness trail as well. Also, watch out for poison ivy - its everywhere.

Dale Johnson: Camp sites are very close together. The road between the sites is un paved, rutty, and the exact opposite of clearly marked. There are nice large fire rings, and picnic tables, and pedistal grills. No lantern post tho. I threw clothesline over a tree branch to hoist my lantern. The bathroom I used was more like a locker room. No privacy to change at the shower. The staff were very helpful, and able to answer my questions. Camp rules is for no outside firewood. A bundle of wood at the office is $9.99. Swing by the grocery store and buy firewood there to save a few bucks, but the hi price also goes into the park coffers to pay the staff and upkeep. It wasn't a terrible experience, but the campsites are just too close together.

Jesi: I booked 2 nights to stay here, then the gas crisis happened so I had to cancel. I called the day before the first night (2 days before the second night, which under company policy, should’ve been refundable) an hour before they were supposed to be out of the office and no one answered. We called the day of and they cancelled it but said we couldn’t get a refund. That’s $70 wasted on a campsite we couldn’t go to because of a state of emergency, their not answering their phone or email, and the employee cancelling before even checking if we could get the refund. I understand they need their money, but we should have gotten a partial refund.

ib webn: I'm in the middle on this one. PROs - Close to everything and not far from DC. - In a park that has miniature golf, frisbee golf, regular golf, canoe rentals, playgrounds, and a nice walking trail around a beautiful lake. - If you live in the county, and looking for quick and close place to go camping, then this place fits the build. - Reasonably clean and well kept. CONs - Being in the middle of the most populated county in Virginia it is not secluded or peaceful. - While not overly loud, you can definitely hear the sound of the surrounding traffic in the area. - The campsites are extremely close together. (NOTE: It looked like the campsites in the "A" section had a little more room, but I don't know if they were for groups.)

Eddie Wayne: Good selection of camp sites. Some larger than others, you decide. Access to the lake and fishing. The camp store is well stocked. All scouts welcome. Great place for family camping.

John Kinch: A very nice campground right next to Burke lake with a great trail goes all the way around the lake. The camp store has few items aside from the essential, but what it does have is at a reasonable price. The staff is friendly and helpful. All around a great campsite

Helen Wu: Be aware—additional $28 just for dumping.. seriously?! At no point it was communicated until upon departure. The site itself was small, no hookups. Not suitable for RV camping.

Francisco Vanegas: Everything is set as it is supposed to be. I found it beautiful and cozy, besides ... safe. Would come back, for sure!

Oxon Cove Park & Oxon Hill Farm: what do users think?


L Smith: The most peaceful place ✨the animals seem happy here All of the parents communicated to not touch or harass the animals, which was nice, particularly for the chickens. The chickens are out and about so it’s nice they don’t have to feel vulnerable around people. There are two trails here. They’re easy to follow with bright tree markings and there were kids on them, so they can’t be too serious. There were cows, horses, pigs, a rooster, chickens in the farm area, as well as vultures on the trail. There’s are two picnic areas, one has a grill. There’s a shop as well.

Moving on with Old Man River Old man river: This is a great little national park site. It was not listed in my book. I learned about it from a volunteer worker at Fort Washington. A lot of school kids from the Washington DC area are school bussed there. The rangers told me for many of them this was the first time to visit a national park or even a farm with chickens. Cows horses and hogs. The rangers were very nice and helpful to everyone.

bigshow379: It's been about 20 years since I have been here. I spent a lot of time here working with my dad rehabilitating and transforming a few buildings there into what they are Today. My dad was a carpenter for the national park service. Rip pop. Covid has changed things ofcourse no activities involving groups. Beautiful place my kids loved it. Bathrooms are clean grounds taken care of decently. Plenty of Picnic area with grills.

Nathan Mease: Great picnic areas with tables and grills available. Recommend close toed shoes and plenty of water.

Austin Graff: Just across the Southwest D.C.-Maryland border is a 19th century farm preserved by the National Park Service. Every day, the park ranger opens the gate around 6:30 a.m. and closes it at 5 p.m. All are welcome to visit the farm free of charge. Here's why you should visit: 1) Museum: It's an interactive museum. As you walk the farm's campus, you'll read historical markers and go inside almost 200-year-old brick barns. You learn about the farm and the history it witnessed (like being attacked during the War of 1812 or watching Alexandria across the Potomac get captured by the British). 2) Farm: You can see horses, goats, chickens, hogs and cows on the farm. They offer some farm programming for kids like chicken feedings, tractor rides, etc. 3) Trails: Beyond the early 19th century farm house is a trail that leads to Oxon Cove and wooded trail with river views. Once at he cove, there are benches, views of Alexandria, picnic tables and a running trail that goes for miles. Oxon Hill Farm is a perfect adventure for the whole family, runners and history buffs.

Victoria: Beautiful but the trails are terribly labeled. I came here to hike with my dog. The farm portion of the park has a no dogs sign, which makes sense given the livestock. So my plan was to circumvent the park using the green trail line shown on Google maps, and follow it all the way down to the water and back up. Well, because nothing is clearly labeled, I ended up on a service road. Trying to get back onto the green trail, I turned off onto a gravel trail that ended up taking me all the way back up through the farm (where I wasn't supposed to go because I had my dog with me). It's just frustrating that I was trying to follow the park rules and be considerate of the farm, but a lack of clear trail signage not only cut my hike significantly short, but also meant I broke the rules anyways.

kara taylor: Great family outing. The staff was very engaging and the kids loved it. They are very upfront about the history of this farm which I appreciated seeing throughout the farm.

SoundBite: I loved visiting here--It was the best use of my lunch break I've had by far. It was beautiful in the nice weather and if I'm ever in the area again I'd go. Really nice walk, 100% free, and even a small gift center (I did not enter.) They have horses pigs cows chickens and more.

Chris B: Not sure what was up when we went on this Saturday morning in June but the only animals we could find were 4 cows in a pen and some chickens roaming the property. No other animals in their stalls nor fields, was pretty bizarre tbh. At least the kid got to run around some.

Vilia McClearen: Five stars if you're looking for a country venue in the city, three stars if you're taking kids to a park but there is picnic eating area and you can see the highway if you're interested lol

Greenbelt Park: what do users think?


Rick Sussman: Though we lived in the area for nearly 25 years (Montgomery County) this was our first time here. And a wonderful time of year for camping, too, with hardly anybody else here. We spent 5 nights in D loop in our 30 ft travel trailer, using our generator throughout the day and evening as necessary. Our site was just long enough for us, fairly level and open. We spent much of our time outside the park visiting family. And as close to very urban areas as it is, in the back of the campground it almost felt remote. Sunsets were beautiful.

Na'ilah Dawkins: I gotta say as my first time coming here there is so much space, it's within 15-20 minutes, and fun for all age groups! It was my first time at the park. I was participating in 'Eco-Games' a Sierra Club event! I'm a member, I went. It was very fun! I was alarmed though at the park bathroom situation and lack of available staff concerning communicating about any concerns. The bathroom needs soap on deck and ut didn't! Thank goodness I had hand sanitizer. The women's bathroom left sink didn't work. I used the one to the right side. Disappointed. Where is the funding for national parks like this going, if bathroom necessities are lacking? More funding for our state parks are needed!

Moving on with Old Man River Old man river: I camped at this national park last night May 4th 2022. I am a tent camper and want certain things. I want a bathroom close. Before you book please know what you are booking. A great number of the camping sites have (for me) too much of a slant. I drove around took the number of different campsites and then booked They charge 20.00 per night and have the discount rate of half price for the disabled card holders. The park is close to Washington DC.

Richard C. IV: With miles of unpaved trails meandering through a lush and verdant forest teaming with life, it is easy to forget you are inside the capital beltway. The freshly repaved roads throughout the park are a magnet for road bikes zipping up and down the small hills. Truly a wonderful outdoor oasis in the heart of the DMV.

Jarmonay Nelson: This place is decent. When you have a group of first time, campers or children. I did not like that. The people drove around all throughout the night. I mean it's safe. They make sure that we're safe, but it was like kind of annoying when your children are trying to sleep and they still have their high beams on making sure that there's no fire or anything. . This place has a lot of bugs like of every kind I seen so many bugs in the bathroom at our campsite and the grass just everywhere hanging out spiders all types of critters. This place definitely had a lot of extra wood and trees around to help you grow better fire. I like that they had a clean bathroom and a water pump. This campground feels like a big community and I like that, but I also love privacy so I probably won't come back unless I invite a big group of children or friends who want to experience camping. You can hear the police cars and the city still. And that's not very peaceful but overall we enjoyed the stay.

Favio Urla: Plenty of parking alway a plus; and benches. No parking or entrance fee. Has a short trail and a long trail (1.4 miles). Pet friendly, but do please pickup after your friends 🐕💩 droppings.

Mike Jones: Nice park in urban area. Hosted 40 years of Wednesday night bike racing, which is the only reason I go there!

Sean Troxell: The roads and parking lots are open again. We had a nice walk with the kiddos on a brisk sunny day.

Stick X: Its a nice campground with a nice area and also provides showers (not many campgrounds provide showers). Although, the camping sites are really close to each other and it kinda feels a little weird camping 10 feet away from an entire other family. Although the trails are nice.

Hannah T: Great campsite for our tent camping with kids. Had large lots and no gravel camping pad. We got a no electricity lot that Included water nearby and a shower/bathroom nearby and great trails for walking. We did find a Lone Star Tick on one of our party while at the campgrounds. Hadn’t realized they were in the area.

Anacostia Park: what do users think?


Carolyn Grant: This is an underrated park, it has lots to offer. I took my class off preschool down here and just playing they had fun. People who know just know.... fishing ,roller skating ring, basketball, picnic, nature watching,walking,playgrounds. Rowing, Kayaking and so much more.

Nathan Lapin: Great trail to walk or bike. Has nice stopping points so one can overlook the river. We even saw a helicopter land nearby!

Austin Graff: Let me count the ways I LOVE Anacostia Park: 1) It's one of the best running trails in all of DC. It stretches for miles along the Anacostia River and the path is well kept for runners. 2) There's a lot of green space to picnic and enjoy nature. 3) There are hidden gems throughout from murals under highways and even a famous skating ring. 4) It's great for kids. One of DC's best playgrounds complete with a pirate ship is in the park. I could go on and on so instead how about you head on over to Anacostia Park and check it out for yourself. It's a GREAT spot!

Margaritta L Martin: Washington DC has changed since I left the metropolitan area when I lived in Maryland It was my favorite park to go too and relax or grill near the river I asked my sister who lives in Dc did Anacostia Park and other Parks I visited existed and she told me all still do

Jessica Light: Nice little spot for a doggy play date

Brian Burrell (Big B): There can be heavy foot traffic. But good for a bike ride or walk sf cookout. Starting to be kept clean often

A'nya-Rae Ebb: I've enjoyed this wonderful park for 40+ years. Looking forward to the new amenities!

Richard Newman: Not the park I grew up with back in the day. My hats off to those who made what it is today 100% better. not the feds . everyday people !

L. Butler: I love Anacostia Park because it's a walking distance from my neighborhood to walk for miles without interruptions. It's a great place to walk and to jog while watching beautiful sceneries...species of variety birds flying, boats cruising, Rowers rowing, athletics of basketball, football, soccer, fishing, rollerblading and families celebrating.

K Wallace: When that weather gets warm in the park
