We Enjoyed It
Camped two nights visiting family in August. Nothing fancy, but comfortable. Nice camping by the Potomac. You do hear the train yard, but it's just background noise, very few trains pass by. Cute town,small shops and restaurants. Larger big box grocery store in town. Plan to stay again.

Tough place to find. Bare basics here. It was ok for our one night stay, as there isn’t much in the area. I wouldn’t go back, but it suited our needs at the time. Not a destination campground. We did not use the limited amenities, so no comment there. Spots were somewhat close together. Our dog did love swimming in the Potomac River...which is about all this place has going for it.

Comfortable and Easy
Comfortable campground with swings and a play area for kids. Potomac river access, nice shaded lots if you can get them (we had a field lot), decent bathrooms. Lots of excursions if you are interested: kayaks, canoes, tubes. Everyone was friendly and laid back. Would come again.

We where very disappointing in this campground instead of decorating for Halloween they should be improving the place. after one day of rain we had a lake in front of us. and don’t try to drown out the loud kids screaming on weekends you’ll get a visit from the noise police. also to expensive not to be full hookups. We want be back.

Do not follow iPhone GPS, use google maps. The iPhone left us in the middle of the town & told us to walk to the site. Sent us through many small roads...awful trip to it.
Site are level, but you share water & electric boxes. Bring long hose. Very bad road into site, low hanging branches & lots of holes in dirt road.

Level tent and RV sites. Small cabins nice for families < 6 people. weekends can be noisy but weekdays quiet, peaceful. Bath house cleaned daily, better than average, but only 2 shower stalls per restroom. Daylight trains limit access into/out of campground. Many river, trail, sightseeing opportunities nearby. Weekend/holiday tent/bike parties using C&O Canal NHP--like Boy Scout troops--often stop here, arise early and ignore impact of loud voices on neighboring campers. Camp managers do not advise such groups of campground quiet times or monitor adherence. Also managers allow weekend "squatters" to enter campground without renting a site, set up picnics on vacant campsites/tables. Such persons trek indiscriminately thru registered campers' sites: very off putting and can feel a threatening as they often do not speak English, and seem unaware/uncaring of impacts of invading neighboring campers' home away from home. Overall, recommend this as workweek location: Skip weekends/holidays!

Trains can be annoying. Dump station not convenient for my 35' coach. We loved the atmosphere of the town very near by. Old school feeling. Great Mediterranean eatery (Potomac grill). The grounds were clean with lots to do. The staff was friendly and very accommodating. Maybe consider this again if we can't find anything better in the area.

Next to railroad tracks. If you like the sounds of trains this is your place.
