We stayed in two different tree houses at this campground. (We stayed an extra night so they moved us to an open tree house) We really enjoyed ourselves. The owners were very friendly and helpful. There have been some comments about the cost being too high but I would have to disagree. The KOA down the road is much more... More

I'll get to the showers in a minute. A group of friends and I stayed at the tree house camp over a weekend in July. First know that it's a very popular campground - it seems that a lot of urbanites and families from DC and Baltimore go to Maple Tree for a nice weekend getaway. And we had a... More

I agree with you, our showers are great. Check back next year, we are going to build a water playground. Honestly, the only reason I would go into the "spiel" is if someone tells me they think our prices are too high. At that point, I honestly don't see it as a "spiel", I see it as a conversation. I...

We took a few days off last week and were looking for a camping experience but didn't want the hassle of setting up a tent and wanted to sleep a bit more comfortably. We also could not afford to spend a lot. A friend recommended this place as he had been going there regularly. It was perfect for what we... More

I was planning my vacation with my daughter & 3 grandchildren around washinton dc. We decided we wanted to go camping, so I started researching campgrounds when I came across the Maple Tree Campground and glad I did. Even though it was about an hour or little more from the campground, I didn't care, we loved the idea of tree... More

The treehouse campground really opened my eyes. I am a city girl, used to the streetlights and I never knew it could get so dark at night. My favorite part of my stay here was watching the lightning bugs in complete darkness. We were surrounded by trees and they were our umbrella during a long light rain through the night.... More

My bf and I drove down from Chicago, planning on doing business in the state and driving back. Each night, we found ourselves asking to stay another! We stayed in one tree house, one tree cottage, and two tent sites. Personally, I preferred the tree house to the cottage because there were screens that allowed for airflow and a nice... More

Overall, a nice campground, but with a few shortcomings. The owners live at the campground and are very involved, which is both good (always making sure the bathroom is clean) and bad (seemed a little over-protective sometimes). I stayed in a tent at a campsite, which was spacious and free of trash, etc. I liked how the campground was within... More

Thank you for your review. There was a temporarty problem with the drain because a group of young boys left the showers on for 24 hours and backed up the drain. The showers are designed to simply get the job done and get clean in a short amount of time, they are not designed for lingering. They have a different... More

The tree cottages and houses are a convenient way to camp comfortably in a magical setting. There are so many special details that make this place wonderful; delicious spring water, beautiful flower gardens as well as uplifting thoughts decorating walls. The grounds and cabins were very well kept: Very clean, large grassy (cut very short) tent camping area with a... More

Maple Tree was everything that I was expecting and more. I read through tripadvisor extensively before picking this place. I found all the reviews helpful, whether they were "poor" or "excellent". While reading the reviews, I found that folks in the "poor" to "average" scale just had different expectations than I would for a camping experience. For instance, if I... More

Thanks for your review. We have "the guy" with the Bobcat smooth out the roads 2 or 3 times a year. When it rains heavily, as in a flash flood, the water pours down the mountain like a river and damages the roads. I am consulting with an engineer about building a drainage system, but that would cost about $15,000.00.... More

I loved being able to just get away for the weekend and leave everything behind. The cabins were spacious, clean and inviting. The area around the cabin were set up with campfire circle and even a grill which was fantastic!
