Great place for a run!

We were staying at a local hotel and my husband loves to run each morning. We quickly scoped this place out before nightfall, and he had a great run the following morning. Some... read more

I am a writer and photographer for National Park Planner (npplan.com) and I visited Greenbelt Park in September 2016. Greenbelt Park is an outdoor recreation area that offers camping, picnicking, and hiking just outside of Washington D. C. on the northeast side of the Beltway. This is the closest campground to Washington, and it is only 30 miles from downtown... More

I like rustic secluded camping but we went here because we were evacuated from another place due to a storm. The lots were quite close together. Luckily we had nobody right next to us but the site two down was full of (possibly) college kids who thought it'd be fun to come to the park to play beer pong and... More

The park feels secluded though you can hear the distance sound of traffic. The inner sites are maintained better that the outer/wood sided sites are. There is one bathroom with one shower for each area, so if there is a number of campers, you will have to wait. Can't beat the cost over the lack of amenities and getting to... More

We are on a 2 week camping spree up the east coast. Most of our days are filled with things we find to do, so we usually roll in late to campsites. For some reason, some are closed at night (CRAZY). This one was open, and they even show the sites that haven't been reserved at the fee station. This... More

Last review I posted was last year. I picked up a tick there and ended up with Lyme. Just be careful and where insect repellent and if you are bit by tick watch for signs of acute Lyme, i had rash within 4 days.

We stayed in Loop D for 6 nights (Site #133). There is a bathroom with hot showers in this loop and in loop C there is dump station and fresh water which will take a hose attachment to fill the RV. We had no problem accessing the dump / fresh water with a 39' Class A RV. Metro / Safeway... More
