The campground is well maintained but does not allow any yard art or anything on the lawn. Our GPS directed us into the back gate, which requires a combination to open. Registration is at the Outdoor Recreation site about 1/2 mile outside the front entrance. We had to ask directions. Our site backed up to the Potomac River. We made reservations 6 months in advance. - Richard R Reed

This is a very nice park right on the water. All sites are paved. No issues with Sat' reception as there no large trees at the spots. Price is high for a MWR camp. Hard to justify when there are no additional things at campground. A bathhouse and just a couple of washers & dryers. Price is based on competition off base. The bad part of the camp is that 99% of the sites are not level. Many are horribly slanted. The water and electric are located at the front of the sites. Why? A ignorant contractor and clueless contracting office come to mind. Industry standards were not met. The MWR office has good people working there. They do their best with the lousy reservations software they are forced to use. They do their best to help out. They keep the camp clean and the sites up and running. Parking for toads or trailers is limited. There are not many parking spots for visitors and second vehicles. Be aware, they may ask you to put your trailer in long term during your stay. Commissary & PX are just across route 1 on the other side of base. Real easy to get to and from DC, Pentagon and other tourist sites. National Museum of the Army is going in at the fort. This Campground really needs to expand to accommodate the influx of visitors. 54 sites will no be enough. The self appointed host onsite (does not work for & is not affiliated with MWR) will help you get set up. He will also visit you a lot, and then some. - KodiTzu

Clean. Pricey. Wifi internet is atrocious. Make sure you have good cell internet as the camp wifi internet is really bad. - Zybane

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 park is attached to a nice Potomac River marina, great water park, trails, and a variety of camping options. My sloped lot #42 comments: a challenge for backing in and I needed an extra hose for water hookup (no sewer on this site). They had other level and deeper sites which I will remember next time. Most sites are nicely shaded which brought some relief for 90+ degree days. I wasn't there for the family activities but enjoyed some nice quiet evenings in the shade. - Chaplee

We really enjoyed this campground, and that was without taking advantage of all the amenities. Our site was level and spacious, and bordered on the playground so it was fun watching all the kids playing. Plus, this gave us a big grassy area for walking our dogs. The check in guys were great, they allowed us to have parts for our trailer mailed there and even delivered them to our site. The utilities worked fine and they have a stone-filled trough around the water which avoids a lot of mud. It is s little tight bavking into the sote because the road is narrow. We would definitely camp here again and stay longer. - janci

This place is a gem in hiding. $10.00 senior rate close to lost of stuff Quiet. only 23 miles from Washington DC. If you plan to visit DC you must stay here. Transportation to city is close by and inexpensive. Train or metro. I would give a higher rating if I could. - averybound

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

Dry camping only with dump station near camp store and fresh water spigots at restrooms. Probably a great campground for tent camping but sites for RVs are very limited. The few that are level or long enough for an RV may or may not be available when you arrive, since you can't reserve specific sites ahead of time. Roads and sites are gravel/rock/dirt. Recent rains and poor drainage left some roads very pitted and with gullies running through them. Other than that, if you want to dry camp, have a small RV, and can grab an acceptable site (park literature says #'s C1,3,4,5,8 and B1,8,9 are good for up to 30' RVs) then this is really a beautiful place. Very heavily shaded. Near beautiful little lake. Nice walking trails. Lots of activities for kids in general park area (train, carousel, ice cream shop, putt-putt and disc golf). Verizon signal strong. Over-the-air TV antenna brought in plenty of channels. - aowcarol

This is a nice, small, primarily tent campground that is well maintained by the park authority. We spent one night during Labor Day weekend and there were plenty of sites available. Everyone was tent camping. Smaller trailers could back into some campsites witout too much trouble. All sites are under trees. There are only a few lake side campsites with limited views of the lake. There's a small playground and grassy field. There are 3 fairly clean bathhouses which is plenty for this size campground. A camp store and dump station are at the cg entrance. The main park which is on the other side of the lake has Par 3 golf, mini-golf, frisbee golf, fishing, rowboat rentals, ice cream parlor, carrousel, small train rides, and a good hiking/biking/fitness trail. Private canoes and kayaks are allowed, but no rentals. There is no swimming. You can get to the main park by using the trail. I was the only one who noticed a lot of night road noise from a road outside of the park. Otherwise, the campground was quiet. I'm sure we will return for a full weekend stay. - crazy4sailin

The site was large, almost perfectly level, and wooded. It was also right next to the bath house, which was great for the kids. There were several paved walking paths leading to the bath house, so no one cut through our site to get to it. Site was equipped with a fire ring, grill grate, lantern post, and nice long picnic table. There was a nearby shed with firewood for $5/crate, sold on the honor system. However, there were lots of downed trees around, so we never had to buy any firewood. We were near the "top" of the oval loop, so also had close access to the foot trail through the forest, as well as the foot bridge over the creek, leading to the marina. Bath house was old, and quite buggy, but reasonably clean. No dish washing sink. Showers looked ok, and the stalls were quite large. Marina at the day-use area was very nice. Several docks for strolling and fishing, and saw quite a few boat slips available. There is also a discovery/nature center and art center in the day use area, both of which we really enjoyed. There is a nice, brand new playground, and a pavilion which looked pretty basic and old. The day use area seems to see the most action (and maintenance) in the park, by far. There is a separate historic area in the park, which contains Gen. Smallwood's mansion, and a few other historic buildings. According to the website, these are only open a few days out of each month during the summer, and for an open-house type event around Christmastime. There is another pavilion in this area, as well as a recycled tire playground. The playground is about 15 years old, and you can tell it was really nice at one point, but has been somewhat neglected over the past few years. This is definitely one of the smaller, less popular MD State parks, and that shows in the lack of maintenance and updating of some facilities. Nevertheless, if you're looking for a place to just hang out, camp and fish, and don't need any bells or whistles, this could be a good option. - Jenventola

This is a little known gem in the Maryland State Park system. Very quiet and shady sites. Extremely clean. Easy access to dump station on way out of campground. All sites had a fire ring, picnic table, and large "patio" area adjacent to the site. Most sites are wide without trees obstructing back-in access, though there is PLENTY of shade. Multiple overflow parking areas available if needed, but we were able to fit camper, meg-cab dually and a 2nd vehicle within our site. Reservation website lists 30' max, but we found 8 sites we could easily fit our 43' triple axle triple slide 13'6" tall 5th wheel on. We were also able to maneuver on interior roads without issue. Short walk to the marina, historical museum, fantastic playground and new nature center. Wonderful shaded walking/hiking paths. Easy access to DC for those wanting to see the sights in the Capital. - User3193

This is a really nice park with plenty to do and see. Maybe a little too "woodsy". Sites are a little small but there is plenty of space between them. For a state park, I would have expected better trails. With the river so close, fishing and boating is very popular here. There is even a museum in the park. - tonymaldonado

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

Very few RV park options available close in to Washington, DC. This park is 32 miles out, one of the closest. Park staff were very friendly and accommodating. Park maximized the space available to provide pull through sites. Spaces are short, but ours was fine for our 26 ft. motorhome. Parking for tow vehicles was adjacent to RV rather than in front or behind. Site was fairly level, but had to use leveling blocks. No extra parking next to laundry room. Had to park in vacant RV site to unload laundry. Six washers and dryers available at $2 each. - Texas E-S

Decent older park adjacent to the national park. Interior roads and sites are paved, but not very level. Heavily wooded but no issues with overhead branches. - DrLewie

This was our 2nd visit to Prince William Forest RV Campground. Pros: Centrally located if your goal is to tour Northern Virginia historic sites; nightly fees a bit high but not excessive for the area; park amenities adequate and well-maintained; propane available; park manager, if asked, willing to offer general visitor info. Cons: Sites are closely spaced, parking pads often short and uneven, little personal privacy; limited number of sites available for BIG RIGS; tall tree cover is welcome during the summer but creates a dark and dreary mood during the rainy winter months. For us the CG is an OK place to stay if your goal is to spend most of your day visiting the area; it's not a CG we recommend if your goal is to hang-out and visit with friends. - Kona Boy

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

Friendly staff, but not really a place for someone just passing through. All but 8 sites are for seasonal campers. The overnight sites are grouped closely together on a grassy slope. We will not stay here again. - Dave51

This is a great value, what you pay vs what you get. The owners were super nice, went out of their way to make us feel welcome. I believe all but 8 sites are for seasonal campers. The sites are back to back, grass sites between the bath house and pool. The 30 amp power was good, but did not need to run the a/c. The bath house wasn't great, but was clean. This was an amazingly friendly group of people, made us feel very welcome. I would stay here again, great waterfront location, great kayaking nearby! - SteveandAnn

When this park is empty, it looks like little more than an open field, not very inviting. But, it does fill up on the weekends, and is a VERY friendly and kid-safe place. There is a down-home party atmosphere, so if you are looking for peace and quiet, this campground may not be the best fit. The pool is clean, the restrooms and showers are immaculate, and there is tons for the kids to do. We shared a power pedestal with other campers, but the 30amps was enough to power both of our AC units without a single problem. They do not have 50amp available. Wonderful church service on Sunday mornings at the pavilion. We will definitely camp here again as often as possible! - User3193
