“So much potential and could be so MUCH better...”

Overall Rating

As a resident of Montgomery County, I'm truly disappointed and embarrassed by the condition, management, website and reservation system used by the campground. The parks department should give serious consideration to using Reserve America along with finding another host and website developer. Most often then not the website does not work.

The campsites are neglected and in desperate need of cleaning and basic maintenance. The RV campsites are just terrible and by far the worst we have camped. Some are just downright dangerous with widow makers above and an electrical system that provides fluctuating power. There is no water at the campsites so you need of fill the fresh water tank prior to arriving to your campsite. Many of the spigots are discussing and poorly maintained if not a health hazard.

Sadly there is no motivation for the county or the contract management company to improve as Little Bennett is the only campground in the county.

If visiting the DC area go to Cherry Hill or one of the campgrounds between DC and Baltimore or Northern Virginia...skip this place.

“A nice, heavily wooded campground, but pricey and a little tough for big rigs.”

Overall Rating

This is the fourth campground / RV Park we've stayed at in the DC area. $51 for an electric only site is expensive even for this area. The campground's D loop is the only one with electric service, and has water spigots along the road every few sites. This loop has some sites that can handle big rigs, but some sites are only suitable for small RVs. Most sites are unlevel; we needed three wood blocks under each of our rear wheels and more under our jacks, so you probably won't be able to rely just on your jacks. The campground is heavily wooded which is lovely and gives lots of privacy between sites, but also means it's dark inside the RV even during bright sunny days. Interior roads are heavily wooded and some tree scraping was unavoidable. There are a few walking trails through the woods which were great for walking our dog. Sugarloaf Mountain is close by, with lots of hiking trails. There are two bath houses, one in E loop and one in C loop. They were reasonably clean but full of webs and bugs in the corners. While the water was hot and pressure was good, the shower stalls were tiny with no shelves to hold your toiletries, and share a changing room separated from the rest of the bathroom by a curtain. There's an electronic gate at the entrance to the park, and when you check in they give you the code to get in any time. AT&T and Verizon both worked fine. Access to I-270 is very quick and easy. We'll likely stay here again because it's the closest park for visiting family. If it wasn't for the very unlevel sites and high price, we'd give Little Bennett a higher rating.
