I'm not sure I'd call these treehouses; they're really more like cabins on stilts. However, don't let that dissuade you from coming here to do some great car camping! The Maple Tree Campground is close enough for day trips to Harper's Ferry, Frederick, MD, Antietam Battlegrounds, and Charles Town Race Track. The "treehouses" make the perfect spot for car camping,... More

Hi, thanks for encouraging words. The pathway to the restroom is quite removed from the Woodpecker site, and people should not walk through your site. Normally it is common sense for people understand this, as the paths are well marked, but sometimes kids don't think about these things. Under those circumstances, it is appropriate to ask people to please not... More

I booked a weekend trip with nine friends the weekend of June 13-15 and we had a great time! We booked a few months in advance and stayed in the Robin treehouse. I spoke to the staff beforehand and they said that it may be a squeeze for 10 people, but it was a spacious cabin and we were able... More

First, The staff is amazing. They were super friendly and very helpful. We stayed in a cottage. It was more than enough room for our family of 4. I wasn't crazy about the fact that the doors do not lock. I understand that locks on the door for the Tree houses would be pointless but I was shocked to find... More

Hi, Thanks for positive words and feedback. Traditionally when people camp, locking a tent is a non-issue, and, everything here is camping. In 42 years, we have never had a problem with theft. I think having latches on the cottages is a good idea, so, it is on my to-do list now. We suggest you keep valuables locked in your... More

I've lived in the general area for years and have no idea why this place was undiscovered by us until now! It's wonderful!! We stayed here and had a lovely time. The ladies in the office were friendly and helpful, the cabin was cute, clean, comfortable, and snug; the bathrooms were warm and well maintained. We used sleeping bags on... More

This weekend we celebrated my son's 13th birthday at Maple Tree campground. My family and dog stayed on Friday night, and I returned with my son and 3 friends to stay Saturday night. We had a great experience in the Bonsai cabin. I have read most of the reviews, so I will preface by saying that we are avid campers,... More

We camped in the tent site farthest away from the offices. This is a very rough campground and very hilly hard to walk around on. Too many rocks everywhere. Our tents are kind of big but we did manage to find some flat area to set-up. The tent floor was not completely stretched out though. The weather was very hot... More

So sorry the weather was not the best for your camping trip. Every year, this area gets on average about 2- 3 heat waves that last roughly 4 days where the temperature can spike over 100 degrees, and, yes, camping in a heat wave is not ideal. The rest of the time it is comfortable and breezy. Unfortunately, we can't... More

I rented a tree cottage with my boyfriend and 2 friends in mid December. I will warn you that calling this a cottage is a BIG stretch; it has no electricity and no furniture besides a picnic table and bunk beds. That being said, if you go in knowing that this is what it is, you'll have a good time!... More

Absolutely stunning location for this campground. We drove to and from at the peak of fall color and I have to say it's probably the most scenic drive I've ever taken. Campgrounds themselves are nestled onto a hillside of the Appalachians with views of other hills/mountains all around. Nice tall canopy of trees throughout the campgrounds. And lots of activities...

Thank you for kind words. We recently completed Fall maintenance of chimney sweeping, your stove probably needed a cleaning. Often a stove will smoke a little bit in the beginning, and then once the draft kicks in, they work pretty well. One trick is making sure the flues are open before opening the door to add more wood, each stove... More

We went for a friends wedding in early August and had the best time. It's an easy distance from DC and the campgrounds themselves are a great mixture of rustic and comfortable. The showers have great hot water and of course, it's beautiful! I highly suggest going with great friends and taking time for a float down the river in... More

We rented the entire campsite in early August 2013 for my son’s wedding from Friday to Sunday. This was quite an undertaking since the majority of the wedding party, including the bride and groom, lived in states that required at least a full day of travel to reach the D.C. area. The staff cooperated with us every step of the... More
