“good for young family camping”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 20, 2012

we have two small children, 3 and 1, and this a good place to 'get your feet' wet with camping. we camped all over the US before settling down with kids. this was a our first camping trip with them. we booked a single site near the restroom. we arrive around 3:30pm and set up camp. the site we had was well maintained with a finely crushed gravel bed several inches thick. there was a picnic table and a fire ring with a grill grate. the restrooms were clean, had hot water and surprisingly had showers, something you don't see in national park campgrounds. about 20 yards behind our site was a hiking/mountain biking trail which i used to walk my son to get him to sleep.

in the park is a lake with fishing and paddle boats/canoes available for rent, several athletic fields, picnic tables galore and several pavilions and tents that could be reserved for events. there is also the water mine water park which i believe opens on memorial day.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 24, 2012

We tent camped here for three nights. The campground is nice and the bathrooms are okay - not dirty but not clean either (I wore shoes in the shower!). The one thing I liked about this campground was its proximity to the metro to go visit D.C.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 14, 2011

Super nice campground, facilities and the Water Mine! Clean water park. Near the Reston Zoo but we didn't go. We are locals so we didn't head into DC but you could if you are from out of town. This campground and park is in a super nice (very, VERY expensive) neighborhood and it's extremely safe. Burke Lake also has a good campground and might be a little closer to the city if you are from out of town and looking to do the tourist thing. Lots of good places to eat nearby. I highly recommend.
