The "tree houses" were actually small cabins on stilts. But, they great for a protected sleeping area, better than a tent. We had the kids stay in the bunks and they loved it. They are all nicely located within the forest and are far enough apart for privacy. The fire pit, grill, and area around the tree house was excellent.... More

No wonder this place is fully booked so far in advanced. It is the perfect location for hiking, biking, tubing and canoeing (at least when it is warmer than it was this weekend!) The campsites and the cabins are rustic, but clean. The wood burning stove in our cabin kept us really warm at night. We will be back.

My son's Scout Troop planned a biking trip to the C&O Canal Trail, and when I found out the details I checked them out online, including the campgroung I am reviewing. We got there late on Friday (10pm) and my wife and two sons checked into our treehouse about 11. We were settling down to go to sleep and talking... More

When people repeat what someone said someone else said, there is room for mis-quotation, they call that hearsay. Calvin the maintenance man is a good 'ol country boy, self-professed hill-billy. He grew up working on a farm, and that's a good thing because working at the campground is hard work, long hours, and a low ceiling.. Calvin has tremendous heart... More

my boyfriend and i stayed in the robin treehouse, which louise told us was the oldest one, and a bit rustic. it is, but it was the only one available, so i was happy to get away. the cabin is plywood platforms for setting up your own air mattress etc., and it has a cute front porch that was great...

My girlfriend and I have been here 3 times so far and plan to make it a regular visit. We've stayed here twice for a weekend in the summer as home base for tubing on the Potomac, and once over New Year's during the winter. Book early, most weekends in the summer are booked solid weeks in advance. We waited... More

LOL. We don't get out much in the summer, but the rest of the time we have our week days. I get to go for a hike or maybe a movie. Calvin The Maintenance Man is a bow hunter, so he lives for napping in his deer stand, just over the hill here. Honestly, the only time I almost feel... More

I was thoroughly surprised and happy that we chose Maple Tree Campground for our first camping experience. My 4 year old son had so much fun. We stayed in the Wren treehouse, which was close to the facilities. The area around our treehouse was large and had two picnic tables, fire pit and charcoal grill. There was enough space for...

My husband and I just returned from this campground after a Labor Day weekend there. We both wish we were back, and are hoping we can come again next month! We stayed in the "Willow" tree cottage, which was really great, but after walking around the property think we would choose Magnolia next time... it had a great shortcut to... More

This was our first family camping experience (my first time camping ever). I have two young children ages 1 and 3 and was looking for a unique first camping trip. A friend recommended the tree houses at maple tree campground. Their website is very detailed and helped me select the appropriate site for my family. We decided on a "tree... More

Cute place and fun! We stayed at the Robin treehouse, which is supposed to be the oldest and "quaintest' treehouse. It was clean. It is very simple, but we had a blast! My 2 boys (7 and 12) loved being in a treehouse and thought it was a cool novelty. All of the campers seemed so happy to be there... More

The campground was adorable and the owner was super nice. We camped in a primitive site. The entire time we were there (a long weekend) there were large groups staying at the pavillion. (we didn't realize when we booked that people could actually stay in it or would have booked a site far away). We were treated to blasting rap... More

The tone of the campground is different every week end, depending on the character of the campers. It changes like the weather. 98% of the time our campers are truly lovely and respectful, 2% of the time they are problematic. I wish you would have come to talk to me if you were bothered by noise, or anything. Even if... More
