I have never been to that CG so can't help much with that.

However, I live and work in the area and can offer advice on traffic and parking. Both are bad so I would suggest finding a CG between Fredericksburg, Virginia and Washington DC along interstate I-95 (on the Virginia Side) and close to the Virginia Railway Express (commuter Train) http://www.vre.org/service/systmmp.htm. On the VRE at Quantico is the Prince William Forest RV Campground, http://www.nps.gov/prwi/planyourvisit/rvcampground.htm. Good place to bivy and right next to Quantico MCB (if you are military). This way you can ride into DC on the train in the AM and ride out on the train in the PM. You don't want to drive from the suburbs in rush hour traffic which is just about always due to construction. The subway system (called Metro here) http://www.wmata.com/ is very good and can get you anywhere you want to go in DC.

Fredericksburg is also an area rich in Civil War history as a bonus.

I can’t offer any suggestions on the Maryland side so hopefully someone will chime in.

Hope this helps.

Dave

I agree with DRS244, a couple years ago I visited Washington DC, and even as I was not camping, we were staying at Inner Harbor in Baltimore, we used the Metro train, it drops you at the heart of everything in DC, from there you can use buses, cabs, or take one of the many tours offered in DC area to see what you want to see. Save the driving in traffic to the tour guides. About 6 years ago, I was in Baltimore and I had a rental car, I made the mistake of trying to drive to DC, I was not able to see anything of interest because I was so concentrated on the bumpers in front, bumpers in back and the whizzing tires as they flew past me.

flyrotor, thanks

Thanks for your input, I am well versed, last year my bride and I traveled US 50 route to Sacramento, which goes thru the heart of DC. Imagine, if you will a 35ft motorhome towing a car = 45ft long, going up New York Ave, and then down Constitution Av, still having nightmares about that decision. Grands have just got to see White House, so probably will either take tour bus or mass transit, pretty sure I will not drive....
