We arrived at 3pm Sunday night and found our site. There is no information as to where the camp office is to get our permit. And yes you need a permit to camp here. To get the permit you have to go across the street to the main park and follow the road back to the office. On Sat and Sundays they close at 2pm. So we could not get our permit . About 9 PM the park police came though and sat outside our site. When we approached them they said no permit to gotta leave. When we explained the office was closed when we arrived they said you can't stay here. Just so you know the park police will not give you a permit to camp only the office which opened at 0730 the next morning. The park police did let us stay the night with the promise we would be at the office the next morning when they opened. They do patrol the area to keep moochers from camping and leaving without paying.I was in this park back in 2005 and it has changed a little since then. The sites are not all level. Site 1 is pretty close and deep. Each one has water and electric but no sewer. The sewer dump is on the road on the way in. So dump when you enter not exit. There is a picnic table at each site and the few pull through are good for a small to mid size RV. There is a group camp area at the back for tents. The bath house is not in the greatest shape but hey it's a city park not a resort. Men's has a stall and urinal, 2 sinks and Shower. Same in womans except for the urinal. Sites are always open. Keep the park patrols number on hand. Locals do walk there dogs through here and sometimes cars come in during the night from the local area. But we have not had any problems. If you want rustic this is it. Our rate was $23 per night.

“Cheap campground, poorly maintained. Works if you have to be in this area”

PG county is overall a really crappy place to be so it's no surprise the one area campground is subpar. We had to be in this area for work otherwise we would never be here. Pros: it's super cheap. It's very quiet and was mostly empty while we stayed. Water and electric hookups plus dump station. Small playground in loop for our kids. Across the street from a much larger park with multiple playgrounds and skatepark.

Cons: it's very poorly maintained. Trash in many campsites (cigarette cartons). Maintenance just drives by trash and pays no attention. Bath house is in desperate need of repair. Location is not great. If you have to be in this area this campground will suffice especially for the price but otherwise I would avoid. Most sites are not level but some big pull through sites have plenty of room.
