We rented a camper cabin at Bull Run park for two nights. It was a 35 minute drive from DC with light traffic. The facilities were spotlessly clean and the few other campers we saw were pleasant. A lovely playground near the cabins made a fun distraction for the kids. The camp store was staffed from 8 to 8 and had a bit of anything you might have forgotten but the campground was a short drive from suburbia and we noticed a Walmart less than 10 minutes away.
We were a little uncomfortable because of how empty the campground was, one night we saw only one other family on the other side of the campground. There were probably 80 empty sites between us and them. Some campers would love this but I was a bit uncomfortable as all our other camping trips were to very popular crowded campgrounds. The kids prefer camping with other families and children to play with. I'm told that on the weekends they rent all the cabins and are much busier.
The water park was fun and crowded each day we went.
We spent a few hours exploring local civil war sites each day.
I would highly recommend this campground.
