The location close to Washington DC is great with public transportation (bus) coming right to the campground. I had to go into DC 5 days of our stay for a conference so the bus connection to the subway station was great! You can ( and should) buy the transportation pass at the camp office. Just more convenient and then if you get the Smartcard you can load money to the card on the bus. There are also other tour buses that I believe depart from the campground. Our dogs appreciate the dog park. My family used the laundry, pool, and other facilities. Bath house was clean and had plenty of room in the shower areas. Our site could have used more shade in the sun most of the day, but other sites were more shaded. Level gravel site.
