We have stayed at the Capital KOA and also Cheery Hill we prefer the KOA. I like the location of the KOA better, they both offer transportation to DC. Enjoy DC there is so much to see.

Ramblin Pines is north of Dc and west of Baltimore. I haven't been there in a few years, but it was ok when we were there a few times.
Bar Harbor in Harford County is close to Baltimore but further north from DC.

This blog entry should help:
Camping near Washington, DC

Basically, Cherry Hill is the most convenient but also most expensive. There is a national park that doesn't have hookups that is almost just as close.

Going further out are more options, but getting into the city is less convenient. Big Rig, was there an extra cost for the transportation at Kapitol KOA?

Capital KOA had a shuttle to the Metro but also offered evening bus tours around DC at a cost. I didn't feel safe at Cherry Hill. The place was empty but they packed everyone in one area.

I looked at the list on the blog and remember staying at one listed about 8 years ago. Boy was that an experience. I won't say which one, hoping it has changed for the better. One Saturday night when the staff finished their shifts, 6 or 7 staffers went in to a camper. An hour later they had to open the doors to ventilate it. It looked like Jeff Spiccoli from Fast Times at Ridgemont High, Cheech and Chong was stumbling out. The purple haze was horrible. I found out when I left that a sex offender also lived and worked there. I'm now a retired cop. I wasn't retired at the time, so we left immediately.

What amenities are you looking for during your stay?

I realize that it is a little over an hour away, but we camphost at Point Lookout State Park and we LOVE it. We go in to DC a couple of times while we are there.

This is my home area, do you mind PMing the campground that this was?

If you have any military connection; Andrews has one, and Fort Belvoir supposedly just opened a new one. Good luck.
