Traveling full-time in a 38-foot coach we stayed 23-nights in a site for big rigs (site # 506). Pd $69 night. The good....if you desire to stay close to DC this would be an excellent choice. This is a very well-kept and quiet park with great amenities. There's a cafe on site plus they offer a travel/trip adviser. Take advantage of this as their expertise will help make your excursions into DC much easier. There's even a bus stop at the front of the park. If you have a dog there's ample area to walk your pet plus a fenced dog park. This park has decent wifi and our AT&T phones worked great here. Our satellite did receive reception, however most of the sites have way to many trees to receive satellite reception. This is not a dusty park so the dust on your coach will be minimal compared to many other parks. Big coaches need a gravel pad, so we give this RV Park a 5-star rating for the thick gravel pad. Each site had room at the side of the coach for sitting and relaxing while BBQ'ing. The bad...if your site is next to the freeway you may hear some traffic noise and in the wintertime the noise is a little more noticeable due to the lack of tree leaves blocking the sound. This is a great place to stay and we highly recommend it! - JDC10

A park with this many amenities and price should have a higher rating. The park offers everything you could possibly want from a RV park. The reason for not a higher rating was 1) site not level. I could not level with just my levers had to use 4x4 's 2) levers sunk into the ground 3) Lots of fwy noise. Everything else was very good. Would stay again but would try to get a spot more towards the front to get away from Hwy noise. - newbies2016

Th closest park to DC, very nice and spotless, site was very large. Staff was very good was taken to our site. Bring a water pressure regulator water pressure over 60 PSI. Park is very close 4 miles to the T and they have a shuttle. - tazman1953

We spent 5 nights here, going to Washington DC every day for tourist reasons. This is an incredible bargain as it is about 10 miles away from DC, and only about 2 miles to the Greenbelt Metro station. The first night we were there we were by ourselves at the end of the campground, the grass was about a foot high, and my wife said it felt creepy. The next day they mowed the grass and over the time we were there, more people came in to camp. There are no hookups, but we were fine in our self contained motor home. It rained a lot while we were there, when we left the dump station was flooded so we couldn't dump. We didn't look at the restrooms. - Russell G

Thick trees in serious need of trimming. Interior roads very tight, sites paved but many unlevel, and dry camping only. 1 shower stall for men in all of D loop, and that needed cleaning. Never saw the camphost, maintenance crew drove around but never saw them get out and do anything. Rain created muddy mess, garbage strewn about and not addressed. - rvrrat520

This is of course a NP campground. It is a little bit of heaven in a very large city. Like most NP campgrounds it is in need of a lot of repairs and updates, but if it were not a NP it probably won't even be here. I'm sure the property values in the area would make such a large section of land out of the range of most RV parks. In fact the only other RV park in the area charges $70 a night and that would have been way over our heads to stay at. There are trees everywhere and except for the faint noise of the busy highways on all sides you would think you were way out in the country. Those busy highways are what you have to take to get here but with patience and careful driving it wasn't as hard as I thought it would be. The roads inside the CG are a little rough and in need of repair. The sites could be a little larger and a little more level but we found one that would fit our 40' MH. There were picnic tables at every site but the fire rings were old and falling apart if they were even there at all. You are only 1 1/2 miles from the train station that takes you to downtown DC but we drove our car and after finding a hens teeth parking space we spent a wonderful day walking the DC Mall area. There were very few people the so it was easy to use the one shower in our loop but it would be difficult when it is busy. Most sites are back in but there are a few pull-through. The reservation system is fairly accurate in describing the size and levelness so if it says slightly unlevel you should believe them. Water was available close by and there is a dump station. The small visitors center was staffed by very helpful Park Service and volunteer people who directed us on ways to get around the city. Of course being in the city the cell and internet signal were very good. I would highly recommend this great CG for anyone with a desire to visit the Capital of the US. - rhianna

Travel from Long Island, and this is always our 1st stop. There is construction at the entrances to the post. Tight turn until at camp gate. Entrance to office parking lot to narrow, as evidenced by the tire marks on the curb. We come here for the commissary, the PX, and the class 6 store. The rate has again increased. No cable at site (connector is there) and no WIFI. Seems a lot (45) for what you get. Fort Belvoir (not far) has a new campground and charge $50/nite. They offer a lot more than Fort Meade. The rates must reflect the closeness to the DC area. Interior road has some big potholes. The pull thru's usually for MH and Toad. - Long Island Mac

Very nice park with lots of elbow room. We were in #24 which is on a corner. The nearest RV to us was at least 50 to 75 feet away. The park is clean and they make everyone adhere to the rules (no parking on grass, no junk around, etc) which makes for a pleasing appearance. There was no wifi out where we were, electric was stable, water pressure was fine, and Verizon signal was 4G with 1 and 2 bars (not real strong). There are paved roads and concrete pads with gravel patios. Each patio has a fire pit and picnic table. The commissary and exchange were very nice. Here's our 2 complaints: First are the gates. The gates at the entrance and exit of the park are a pain. If you're on a military base where you are carded before entry, why do you need the gates? Second is Wifi/Hotspot. I called Verizon because my hotspot was worse than dial-up slow and normally it has very good speed. I was told that because of the area (between DC and Baltimore) the tower congestion is such that at certain times of the day it slows down to a crawl. That being the case, the park should have wifi repeaters. All in all we really enjoyed our stay at Camp Meade. - jomark

We've been here a month with a couple more weeks to go. This is a very nice park. Spacious lots, very nice laundry and shower building with a couple break room/library/game areas. Lots of trees but probably ? to ½ of sites are possible for satellite reception. Overall very quiet, except for the base special of reveille at 0630 over the base loudspeakers. Earplugs are useless to counteract, but we got used to it. Better than train whistles or traffic noise. They don't do it on the weekends.
They don't have wifi or cable, though I understand they're working on that right now.
Only downside is there's been a bit of musical spots. Their reservation software doesn't optimize the spots to minimize moves, so we moved twice in a week, but spent almost a month in the current spot. Seemed like it could be minimized since it was mostly people already there moving around. When we extended, the person we dealt with in the office made it so we didn't have to move again, but the experience/interest level of the staff varies.
This is certainly the best value in the DC area. We will be back in the spring for sure.
Rate based on monthly rate. - Seb

According to the rating I gave this RV park, you can see I wasn't too impressed. Let me first say that Andrews AFB is the President's Flagship Base as Air Force 1 is housed here and all the officers and personnel that keep everything in Presidential order. This FamCamp is an embarrassment to the base - in my opinion. It is old and apparently suppose to be upgraded but it is obvious that no work has been done to make improvements even though areas are roped off and those areas are totally unkempt with tall grass and neglected. The area that is being used is mowed where the RV's park, but the center section is growing wild. It is overgrown as close as 4' from the back of the RV and full of no-see-ums and jiggers. There is only 30 amp available. We have a 50 amp unit and have used 30 amp many times without problems. We simply use one a/c. In this park, 30 amp may as well have been plugging our RV into a household plug. If I ran an a/c the only other items that could be on were the LED lights. To take a shower we had to turn off the air (it was 94 while we were here), turn on the water heater and let the water get hot, take the shower then turn off the water heater and turn on the air. One thing at a time. Couldn't use the microwave or convection oven at all. And this after we had them put a new 30 amp breaker on the pole. When we first got here, the breaker kept tripping no matter what we did. The person working in the office claims I told her I had a 36' unit (I did not - that would not be to my benefit to say such a thing. We are 39') and that was the only reason she made the reservation for us. What difference 3 feet makes to the power pole is beyond me. She was very rude and argumentative. It is mostly her tone and attitude. We did not hit it off well at all. We will not be back. Although Andrews is a great place for visiting DC, I would not recommend this RV park. - jomark

we were only staying for 2 weeks but Denise squared us away and we were able to stay for 15 days! The staff was great Denise was very helpful!!! We had no issues plus plenty of space to walk our dogs! Grandsons came to visit our last week and had a blast!!! They are renovating some sites! We will definitely be back!!! - Griffin2

Half of the park was closed for reconstruction, the other half was neglected. Site had concrete pad which was the most positive aspect of the park. One staff member was rude and seemed to think answering questions was not in job duties. Roads gravel, muddy and potholed, restrooms were clean but really outdated, staff seemed to think it was okay to leave mops and brooms anywhere they stopped using them.
Grass around office area trimmed and mowed, rest of areas and campsites grass was 12-18 inches tall. Grass around dog area fencing mowed, inside not mowed. Piles of limbs and leaves everywhere.
Half of park being rebuilt/upgraded to 50 amp, but placement of utilities made no sense. While a very good location for visiting Washington DC, a disappointing park. One would think that the support base for the Presidential fleet of aircraft would be a showplace in all its facilities.
Base Exchange being remodeled but open for business, commissary large. Golf course one of the best I've ever seen on a military base. - Retired Medic

A tough one to rate. Overall the campground is not a bad choice for visiting the Baltimore/DC area. We are local to the area and were doing a day trip out of and back into BWI airport, which is close by, and decided to use this campground to stay the night before and after our flight. The problem was that the KOA website enables you to book a site at the campground, they evidently have 10 sites open through the winter, but does not indicate that all facilities in the campground are closed. Our little trailer does not have a wet bath, so we rely on a campground's facilities. Rate was considered to be already discounted and so the KOA membership would not apply, again something else the website did not mention (when booking it still advertises that you save an additional 10% with a membership at check out).
Otherwise it is a nice campground, it is next to a highway, but it is not a busy highway at night and there are a lot of trees between the highway and the campground, so noise was minimal. The site was level gravel with a patio, and all utilities worked well. They have nice long pull throughs in the open as well as a nice wooded section, and cabins sprinkled throughout. It is an easy trip many area attractions, and they run a shuttle in season. - Cyclonic

Stayed a week and really enjoyed our deluxe spacious pull through campsite with concrete patio, table/chairs, grill and shade. Park is in an area with many nearby Interstate and four lane highways with limited access making it complicated to get to/from but GPS worked fine. Located about 20-30 minutes to Annapolis and 40-60 minutes to Washington or Baltimore. Park has many trees for shade and many sites can access satellite (be sure to ask if you need this when making reservation). Did not use but park has pool, playground, dog park, large inflated jumping pillow, fee based shuttle service. Roads and pad are level gravel in pull through area. Space between sites are grass and decent width between rigs and many are spacious for KOA standards (this is more upscale KOA Holiday than your average KOA). Park was very clean. They charge $10 to reserve a specific site. - Tom Willing

Staff was very helpful and took us to our site. We stayed 7 nights and drove to New Carrolton station and caught the metro downtown Washington most days so never used any other facilities. Never used their shuttle. Quite east to do. Wifi was typical some times there but mostly not. No cable. - Aussie Chums

I don't think there is a great park in the metro DC area and this one is the same. It is older but with mostly good power, water, sewer, but not all sites. Also roads are falling apart, highly wooded so it is tough to get a spot where your satellite will work. Lots of monthlys, or even yearlys. Spots on the upper portion are for all realistic purposes not useful by RVs over 28'. Most are pretty close together, some very close together. Staff is nice but not special. It is convenient to drive into DC, Annapolis, and other tourist areas. Would stay again if in the area but would love to find something better (someone would have to build new) - Johnny xxxxx

We stayed here 2 years ago when owners were new and had no problem getting in. This is the only non-military park anywhere in the area close to Annapolis. Barely got in this time so call well ahead. Disappointed to find it 99% permanent resisidents and although improved, not kept up as well as our last visit. Really wish they had more space for travelers.Very nice staff. - Traveler Anne

Price was for the off season. Swimming pool wasn't open in early May. Lots of other stuff for kids. New owners have filled in some ruts but speeds in most of this large park are governed by the remaining potholes. Utilities were fine. Satellite accessibility is not available at most sites because of extensive foliage. Annapolis is more than ten miles away but this is the only nonmilitary park in the area. - Mtmoi

What a gem of a spot! It's smack dab in the middle of a D.C. suburb in Maryland AND it's 8 miles from the metro station AND...wait for it...it was $13/night!!!! (Senior citizen discount for the win!) - Boerne6
Jul 2017 - $13.00
We stayed here while touring Washington DC. It was a very convenient 15 minute drive to the Metro. This small, wooded campground has very few level sites, very poor power (we had to run our generator for A/C or our surge protector would turn off the power) and the bathrooms are clean but old & buggy. With the senior discount, it was still a good value & no reservations were needed. In spite of the power issues would stay here again if touring D.C. - June & Joe

Do not take Credit Cards, wanted cash. Small Narrow roads with many tree branches that scraped along side our 37 foot 5th wheel. No sewer hook ups, but water and electric were good. 30 Amp only. Tiny sites, only decent level ones for our 37 footer were 24 and 25. Price is right, but the traffic and crummy roads in and out of here in Clinton MD, were not worth the trip. - Scuba Rock
May 2013 - $10.00
We actually left and did not stay here - really no RV sites or place to park - just in a very small un-level parking lot. There is no RV electric - only 20-amp household electric plug-in that one would find in a house. People were very nice, no doubt, but too many factors to stay, even for one night. - campingandtravels.blogspot.com

This is a nice little park very conveniently located to DC. There is no water or sewer at the sites, so come prepared! We filled our fresh tank and made it 6 nights without an issue. As others have mentioned, the shower house has 6 individual rooms that are like private bathrooms, except that they're open above so you can hear everything. The fans were never on, but if they could be turned on it would probably help with the humidity. I suspect the showers are hosed down, but lifting up the "handicap bench" disclosed mucky black hair balls that could easily have been cleaned, and it was very slimy! An elevated mat in the dressing area would be nice so you don't have to stand in the water that comes out from the shower or is left from the hosing down. Also, check the water before you undress - some of the showers only trickle (#1) and the water never gets warm! On the other hand, the sinks spray with such force that you are basically showering there with your clothes on, and the water gets so hot you can't rinse your face with it! Seems like a couple of easy fixes are in order there. Overall it's a nice park, wish we could have explored the trails a bit more, but it rained the first 5 days we were there non-stop, so we only had one nice day. We were grateful the campground is on high ground! The dump station is near the shower house and seems easy to access, we'll use it on our way out. All-in-all, it was convenient for us and we would stay again. - Denise and Glenn

Very convenient location for visiting the DC area. With the recently opened Metro Silver Line, there is a stop only a few miles away. None of the sites have water or sewer, and about half have 50A electric service. The sites are reasonably spaced, and there is little shade. Sat TV and cell service were good. The camping area is high on a hill about a half mile from the lake/water park. The place is quiet on weekdays, but the water park and picnic areas are packed on weekends in the nice weather. - NKA

We had a large site with plenty of room for our dog to be outside. There were trails for hiking and lots of other activities in the park. People in the office were very friendly and helpful. Dish TV, AT&T cell phones and Verizon MiFi all worked well. We stayed here for a week and enjoyed it tremendously. It was a great base for sightseeing in the immediate area and in D.C. Will definitely stay here again if we are in the area. - Bobbi1948

Reiterating what others have stated: approach from the west and you're OK; approach from the east and beware the 11 foot bridge (and we saw NO warning signs!!); 30 amp only; entry road is indeed steep, but not really a problem unless your vehicle is underpowered; a few sites looked like they would require more care to get into with larger rigs. Other tidbits we learned: sites are pretty widely spaced and thus quite private; very wooded which makes it a nice 10 degrees cooler, but forget about satellite anywhere; the potable water is in one spot and the dump is in another and both are on the inside "electric" loop; you must use their wood, but they have plenty; you have to make a 90 degree turn to exit, which isn't a big deal unless there are cars queued up at the entrance like when we left --- we had to thread the needle; when leaving the park the entrance ramp on to Hwy 40 is very short, so you'll have to wait for a gap and/or floor it. As others have stated, this is a great state park to get away from it all with a classic feel and hiking trails, pavillions, ranger programs and the quiet of the woods at night. We didn't explore the trails or woods as we used this as a base for exploring Baltimore, so we went into the city every day. Our site was 429, the last on the electric loop, which is very long and has the added advantage that you can go the wrong way on the one way road for about 20 yards and pull right into your driveway without having to go all the way around the loop when returning to camp. - darwinmoore

Good for what it was - a reasonable state park very close to Baltimore. We stayed here while visiting my daughter who lives in the city. Easy access into Baltimore. Most sites are spacious and look easy to get into. Rest rooms were dirty and didn't appear to be cleaned during our stay. Our site was very difficult to get into, though the campground hosts were familiar with it and spent a half hour with us helping us jockey our rig back and forth to get in. We made a list of sites we will use next time, which does NOT include 427 - avoid that site if you have anything other than a small trailer or class B camper. - DaveAndJoyce

The registration area is away from the camping area and if arriving from the East is hard to access due to a 11 foot underpass restriction. RV sites use the inner loop which has 30 amp power but no water. Sites are about 30 feet apart. Residential housing is visible behind the campsites but we did not have noise problems. Only one place to take on fresh water or dump waste but we did not have to wait. Overall functional but not scenic. - rudyhehn
