We had booked a premium site for our stay in the DC area thinking it would be like other premium sites. We informed them of the size of our rigg and the size of our tow vehicle. We ended up pushing the RV deeper than we had to into the back of the site and our tow vehicle was still in the
road. We parked our vehicle to the grassy side of the lot and the following day the campground put a picnic table next to our vehicle (?). Our RV took up ALL of the site and both our fire ring and our grill had the last RV'rs wood and ashes in it.
Bath houses were par, but floors quite slippery. There were fans to attempt to dry the floors but they failed miserably. Good strong showers tho.
Pool it self was nice........... BUT............ If you had children with you.....CAVEAT....... the lifeguards on duty would not put there Iphones down and occasionally stop texting to look in the pool to observe people in the water.
The hot tub that they offered was a token gesture and should have been swapped out for one to fit in the room that it was in. When filled to capacity the water over flowed to who knows where.
Campers..... let me tell you..... be ready to fork out some $$$$$ for the nations transit system.
The museums and such are all free.... it's getting to them that will hit your pockets. The campground offers the "CARD".... it costs $10.... but only comes with $5 on it... and should you stay there long enough you can get a $3 rebate (put back on the card) after a certain amount of time. This transit system will never ....ever.... go broke. Try not to go during "rush" hour times and you might not pay so much.... but it's kinda hard if you have set sights you want to see. Have good walking shoes on.... you'll need them.
The staff at this campground were friendly and the cafe to by food was good also.
Our only regret would be the lack of understanding on the staffs part to put us in a site that will "FIT" our rigg and vehicle...... especially when you convey all this info to them while making the
reservation. We should have gone to the site next to us which a 43 foot motorhome was on but there was no planning for that I guess.
The campground was doing some construction and it looks like it will be bigger and better because of it.
Overall... once again....it was OK.... has the options in place to see the nations capital and other sites, but to us....that's about it.
