I stayed here while visiting the DC area. I visited in the late fall / early winter and it was so vacant that it was spooky. Also, it gets dark so quickly and there aren't many lights throughout the park. The park staff were very unfriendly. However, the value is good, especially to be 20 miles outside of DC. Definitely do not try to drive into DC from this park between the hours of 8am - 11am. I was stuck in traffic for almost 2 hours. Instead, take the VRE from Lorton, VA which is a few miles outside of the park. The cleanliness of the bathrooms and showers left alot to be desired. However, they were warm, which was a plus. As a woman, I didn't feel very safe by myself, as there weren't many lights and it didn't seem that the park staff patrolled the campgrounds very much. The foliage was beautiful and it is a nice park, I just wish that the staff had been friendlier and that it had felt safer.
