“Great park, close to DC”

Reviewed Nov 15, 2018

Overall Rating

Nice park that was quiet during the week and still tolerable during a busy weekend. Close to DC and some historic sites, good spot for a family trip. Our site was not level and we could not get our camper level, but everything worked. Staff was fantastic- friendly and helpful, even when we arrived at 1:00am, someone showed up to be ... more

Great staff at the park and check in center. Nicole was a fairly new employee that went out her way several times to help us. She has a great smile and personality! All the staff we encounter were pleasant. Site 12 was wide and easy to back in to and set-up/level our travel trailer. It would be nice if the more sites offered water h... more

“Good for visiting DC”

Reviewed Jul 23, 2018

Overall Rating

This was just a spot for me to park and sleep while I went in to DC to visit the Holocaust Memorial. I paid about $20 for an Uber ride (Express Pool) into DC (Lincoln Memorial) on a Sunday morning. It took about 45 mins maybe a little less. You can also take the metro from the Franconia-Springfield station which is about 11 miles and ... more

“Great Regional Park - Don't stay where I stayed”

Reviewed May 15, 2018

Overall Rating

This place is very nice, ideally located, clean facilities and overall a great campground. However, the sites are highly variable, we wrote a blog post about that (see the blog posts tab). If you camp in the middle of the big loop, you'll get a great spot. The two best spots in this campground are 67 & 75, both of which have full hooku... more

This is a lovely suburban park about 5 miles from the Springfield, Virginia, metro station that takes you into Washington, DC. We tent camped with a group in an overflow camping area on a weekend in late October. The park was pretty full, but thinned out Sunday night. Very clean and modern restrooms and laundry facilities. Cabins avail... more

Stayed here for 2 nights. It rained while we were here so unfortunately we couldn't take advantage of the kayaking/river activities and the trails were muddy. They have various types of sites, including full hook up sites but we were in an electric only site. Site 72 was relatively level but just a little close on one side to our ne... more
