Stayed here week of July 4th, 2011. The campground was expensive, but worth the price due to the convenience of being close to the metro line to get into DC. The lots were small, but we did not spend a whole lot of time at the campground. The campground was quiet, well maintained, the bathrooms very clean, and hot water for the showers, nice playground area.
The pool area was clean, although the water temp in the larger pool was FREEZING! The pool house was clean and offered a snack bar, small video arcade, showers, hot tub, and outdoor big screen movie theater. The putt putt golf course could use some serious work.
The camp store was OK, your basic supplies and a ton of DC souvenirs. The staff was incredibly helpful. I suggests asking one of the older staff members for assistance. The younger ones are, well, young and not too helpful.
The staff provided us with a ton of information to get from the campground to the metro station, buying metro tickets, and driving ourselves to the metro instead of taking the city bus. There is a city bus that stops at the campground and it will drop you off at the metro station, but we found it more convenient to drive to the metro ourselves. On the bus, you have to stop often, so that adds a good 30+ minutes to your trip downtown, plus the metro ride. We didn't pay to park at the Metro on Sat, Sun, or Mon the 4th. Can't remember about Tues., I wasn't driving!! :-)
