Yes we've stayed there a couple times. There's bus service right at the office to DC so you don't necessarily have to drive into DC. The park is very nice, but you are close to Rte 495, Capital Beltway, so you can hear traffic but it's not too bad. We live within an hour to the park so we have gone there for a weekend from time to time.

I've been there twice. I had a popup at the the time. A bit expensive, but what can you expect close to DC. If you have a vehicle (no motorhome), you can drive down the beltway a mile or two to the Metro station. You can ride the Metro into DC all day for about $5 after 9:30am. I believe the campground will also take you to the Metro station.

FROG has hosted a trip there twice. We went on the first one. Great place to stay, with very easy access to DC. Recommend!

We went there this spring on the frog trip. Very nice campground, staff is very knowledgeable about all attractions you want to see. The bus leaves the park to take you to the rail but goes past Maryland university so we drove 1 exit up and caught the rail instead.

None of the other options are so convenient to public transit. And really- thats the only decent way to get into the city. I hate driving in DC.

The other campgrounds are- Kapitol KOA in Millersville, MD (I think). Duncan Family Campground somewhere south of DC. There is the Greenbelt National Park- cheap, not crowded but limited hookups. Otherwise, you could go into northern Virginia to Bull Run Regional Park in Centreville. You'd have to drive to Vienna to catch the metro after 10:00am when the reserved lot opens up (expect an hour's commute into the city). Or, about 40-50 minutes north (and then take the Metro from Silver Spring or Greenbelt) you could go to Ramblin' Pines in Woodbine, MD.

We stayed there in June of this year. Very convenient to DC via the metro. (We took the bus from the park to the GreenBelt metro station. You could drive, but we liked not having to worry about our vehicle.) As others mentioned depending on your site location it can be a little loud from the beltway road noise. They were very accommodating to us when we said we wanted a quite area away from kids, playgrounds, and bath houses. A little expensive, but I think you get what you pay for there.
