12 RV Parks near Lothian, Maryland

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

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

This is a very nice state park near Waldorf, MD. We have a 32 foot Class C and tow a Chevy Equinox, so when I was researching the sites on-line from home, I had picked Site #12 which was listed as 60 feet long. After checking-in, I drove to the site and immediately noticed that it was very level for the back 20 feet or so, but the remainder was on an incline. Trying a hard as I could, I would have needed at least 6 inches of blocks under the front wheels to bring the MH anywhere near level. Using the auto-levelers in the MH made the rig look like a bucking bronco with the front end up in the air. So I looked around and found that site #16 was much better and would work for me, so I called the office. They were great to work with and let me change from 12 to 16. Site 16 proved to be a little shorter in length but it was level and still long enough for the MH and the Equinox. The electric was fine and we had a water spigot less than 50 feet from the MH, so it was easy to fill the fresh water tank. The dump station is situated on the way out and had a working water hose and good water pressure for the black tank flush. Of the 30 sites, only 2 or 3 others were occupied, so it was very quiet, cold and peaceful during our short stay. If in the area, I would not hesitate to stay here again. - Love To Travel 2

Nice, small, and quiet campground. The sites are well-shaded and trees separate the sites, providing some privacy. My motorhome is less than 25', so I have no problems maneuvering into any of the sites; however, some larger than 35' might have issues, as not all sites can accommodate large rigs. Some sites have electric, none have water, but water spigots are placed generously throughout the campground. There are also fire rings and picnic tables on the sites.
The bathhouse is clean and has showers.
There are trails for walking and horseback riding and a lake for fresh water fishing.
I camp at Cedarville when I need a break and don't want to travel far from home. - DestinyBoundRV

Point lost for site selection method. Only a few sites suitable for longer rigs but no attempt by park to assign rigs to size appropriate sites. A class B or tent can fit into any site. A larger rig can only fit into larger sites. No issue for us since we were off weekend & at end of season. There was a teardrop trailer in an extra long site nearby. Had a 40' rig come in the park would have lost the revenue since the teardrop had the only site suitable for a big rig. Feels very remote & quiet. Only noise is distant Andrews AFB air traffic. - Veebyes

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

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

The 17 site daily campground is basically a sandy field alongside the beach. The sites 20-25 feet wide are separated by electric pedestals. Some sites have trees along side the beach so those sites get some shade. Tables and fire rings are also lined up along the beach. Sites are slightly messy. No big debris but lots of cigarette butts, bits of paper and plastic, plastic bottles, etc. The County does rake the beach. For a County as prosperous as Calvert they should do better. - RobertW

-Personal beach area
-Good power and water
-Nice warm water
-Boat and paddle board rental on site
-2 security gates
-Coincidentally spot 16 needs maintenance but we were given boards and assistance to get settled into the site
My family absolutely loved this campground! This was our first time staying at a public operated campground so some things took some getting used to. We were so pleased with the campground we are contemplating getting a seasonal site next year. We've been all the way to the Keys and haven't had as good of an experience as we had here.... - Slo Mo

Great beach front camping on the Chesapeake Bay. Campsites are very sandy (this is a beach remember) and have good 50 Amp power and water at each site. No sewer or dump station, just a honey wagon service twice a week. The weekends are very busy here as the location is so great.
Each campsite has a campfire ring on the beach behind the campsite. A great place to have a beach campfire. Swim, wade, boat right from the beach behind the campsite. The campsites are packed full on weekends as is the nearby day-use area. During the week it is much less crowded. There is a pretty big marina right next door also.
The sites are nice and long but fairly narrow. The beach area behind the campsites is a nice large shared use area for campers only. It is a nice sized beach that provides lots of room for the campers to spread out on right behind your campsite.
Reservations are by telephone only. This is a County Park run by Calvert County, Maryland. - eb145

Since my last visit the campground has become populated with permanent party personnel, making reservations difficult. Effectively half of the sites are occupied by long term occupants. It has become more of a housing area, rather than a FAMCAMP. - hw8200

I would expect that a campground associated with the US Naval Academy would be more up to date. This campground needs an upgrade to bring to the standard you find at USMA and USAFA. - hw8200
Nov 2012 - $9.00
The campground is not in the Academy section of the Navy base. That makes it hard to find and difficult to get to. One has to drive through a residential area on a curvy road where there is a lack of signs pointing to the campground. That is one issue that makes it not big rig friendly. Another reason is that the interior campground road is gravel and hilly with some sharp turns. Most of the sites are concrete pads, but they are not long enough to provide plenty of space for a longer RV. I noticed just one pull through. Power is only 30 amp. There is no sewer. I did not use the dump station. The bath house is an older, heated, cinderblock building. It was clean, but adequate only to serve its purpose. The Wi-Fi signal is not generated from within the campground and is weak. There is nothing for the kids to do. A primitive area exists for tent use, but sites aren’t marked. Verizon 3G was fine. During another season, I suspect there would be little satellite signal reception because there a lot of trees. Over the air TV channels are plentiful. The campground is half full of permanents; most likely service members who are stationed there. It is a short drive to the full service commissary, Exchange, gas station, and golf course. Check in is at the MWR/gym facility that is several blocks past the campground. There are no convenient places to park an RV while you register. They honor the America the Beautiful card for a 50% discount and that is reflected in my rate. This is just an OK campground that is better suited for shorter rigs and those who want an inexpensive place to stage from while being a tourist. It won’t be on my return list. - RLM

This is a unique facility. The four sites are narrow, gravel, and fairly level. There is only electric (two with 30 amp and two with 50 amp service) and cable, no water or sewer. All this being said, it worked for us. RVs with slides on both sides would find the sites very tight. There was very good lighting. The members of the Lodge were extremely nice, and we were invited to dine with them. For $14 we had a wonderful meal, and were able to have wine for less than $3/glass. You need to time your arrival and departure carefully, because when Lodge members arrive, the parking lot is small, and cars will block egress to the sites. We would definitely return if in the area. If all sites were in use, it could get claustrophobic. - EdGuru

Prices have changed since previous review - 2015 new costs are $20 Elk member, $35 non. This is for electric only - or you can refill water by pulling up to front of building during times the place is closed. Closest dump is 10 miles away and is cost to sewer plant.
Other reviewer was right, get there early in the day to get your rig parked (4 sites, all back ins and the folks coming to the bar or meetings park on empty sites. Sites are really close - if you have opposing slides, you'll be inches to the next rig. And the landscaping between sites makes walking to the paved area difficult - and if it rains, it gets muddy quickly. Electric posts are at front edge of site, bring an extension cord if you plug in from the rear of your unit. Sites are right next to an outdoor bar and the horseshoe pits. They also hold turkey shoots on weekends so it gets rather noisy.
The plus to this location is proximity to Annapolis, just on the eastern side of the Bay Bridge. They have some picnic tables and a big fire ring near one site that's supposedly open to all campers. - yesmar

One of the nicer Elks Lodges - even open to non-members. Prices: $15 if member of this lodge, $20 if member of other Elks Lodge, $25 if non-member. Very nice people at lodge. There are 4 sites - 2 with 30-amp, 2 with 50-amp. Fresh water available at front of lodge to fill tanks. Sites are narrow, but plenty deep for the biggest of rigs. Try to come before 3pm when bar opens - if not, the lot may be difficult to maneuver to fill water and/or back into sites. We would stay here again. - campingandtravels.blogspot.com

First Impression: Open and spacious. Well maintained landscaping. Safety: No concerns. Access: Get to the Veterans Highway exit off I-97 (exit 10A), cross under the highway, turn left, watch for small KOA sign on right, turn onto Hog Farm Road. Follow signs. Access road in excellent condition, good signage. Garmin GPS got lost as CG mailing address isn't physical address. Office: Friendly staff, large store with snacks, food and soft drinks, RV and camping equipment items. Credit cards accepted. Online reservations available. My price reflects the KOA discount. Facilities: Nice pool, no spa, no fitness room. Small, clean laundry room with commercial machines. Nice restrooms/showers, clean, no mold. Propane sales. Playground with bounce pad. Off-leash dog park. Campground: Not in a flood plain. No storm shelter available. Lightly wooded with big trees around perimeter. Interior roads are wide, dirt/gravel and asphalt in good condition with gentle turns and no overhead obstacles. Big rig and long coach friendly. Tent areas and cabins but no yurts. Sites are all spacious, level, packed gravel, pull-through and back-in, grass between. All utilities at middle of site. Electric is ala carte (mine was 20/30A); no meters. Adequate water pressure with good taste. Sewer pipe is 4" threaded, about 2" above ground level. No patios; usable picnic tables. Fire rings. Satellite views vary but high perimeter trees. Some sites get free cable TV. OTA TV found 34 channels (Baltimore and Washington). Free Wi-Fi with excellent coverage and bandwidth. Verizon phone at 3 bars; 4G at 2 bars. Recycle bins. Noise: No railroad, aircraft, or traffic noise but US-32 behind CG is very, very loud. Bug Report (late July): no insect issues. Runners: CG roads ok for running. Yoga: grass between sites good for your mat. Conclusion: Score 6-Nice. Unfortunately, there are few CG options in the area. - StephenK

Stayed for 5 nights in a motorhome towing - pull through was large and able to park car behind the motorhome. Our site was very convenient to all amenities - pool, showers, camp store, and playground. No trees on our site which was great for our satellite - there is no CATV at this park. Convenient to DC by car, trolley, or metro. Will stay here again. - Jeff & Terry

We have stayed at this park 3 times since 2011. It does not appear to have improved in 9 years. The sites are still uneven, most have little or no gravel so are muddy when it rains, dusty when dry. The roads inside the campground are dirt. There are few 50 amp sites but we got one because we booked in March. The location is great. It is a shame this park carries the KOA name as one assumes a quality that is not available. Interior roads need to be resurfaced with gravel, sites need to be leveled, and more 50 amp spots installed. - leciel19

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

nice military family camp. no pool on the site, but Ft. Meade has a pool you can use. Getting to the campground was a little challenging, directions are not good. PX / Gas station were close by. the restrooms were always clean, showers were clean. the restroom/shower building was centrally located and close by. campground is well maintained. when we arrived our 50 amp plug was damaged and not usable, the engineers came out right away and repaired it. power was good. the office / store is a typical military building, nicely maintained and functional. limited camping supplies available. we would stay here again. - Chief55M

Nice park on Ft Mede for Military/DOD personnel. Price is consistent with other Military FAMCAMPS in the DC Area. Current construction around the post makes for challenging entry. As of May 1 2019, Llewylen Avenue is closed to inbound traffic, so the best (only!) way in is on Reece Road (Main Gate) Make your best way to MD-295 and take Exit 16 to Annapolis Road (MD-175) [i.e. follow the signs to Ft. Meade) Continue down Annapolis through some very heavy construction (but doable in a 45' Motorhome towing a Jeep Cherokee) and get in the LEFT Turn Lane at Reece Road. Either of the lanes at the Main Gate can accommodate a Big Rig RV. Continue down Reece to Cooper AVE and turn LEFT. Go to Llewylen AVE and turn LEFT and continue to Wilson St and turn RIGHT. The Outdoor Rec will be on your left @ 1/4 mile down Wilson. Pull in (4 Big Rig RV Lanes are available) and register. RV Park is directly ahead from the RV Parking Lanes. - BamaBob
