Nice And Cheap
20$ per night. Clean camping. Just a lot of helicopters during the day (noise) but I guess it’s because we are close to Washington DC.
5min by car to go to College Park and park the car. Then it’s a 20min métro to go to L’Enfant Plaza and visit The White House, Capitole and everything.

Perhaps this is a beautiful campsite but we didnt stay long enough to find out. We booked a space a month in advance and arrived late in the evening only to find our reserved spot was taken by a tent camper. The sign on the post had their name and their camping dates as if we had never made the reservation, even though we had the confirmation email in our hands?!! Luckily, despite it being a busy holiday weekend, we were able to find another spot. Definitely dissatisfied that they didnt honor their bookings!!

Convenient And Close To City
We really enjoyed this place. Most people staying here are heading into D.C. for the day, so this is ideal.
You can bike all
The way from the campground to the city (about 12 miles) and avoid all the traffic and parking issues that go along with that.
Great trails around the park - and plenty of wildlife too!

Not A Restful Nights Sleep.
This actually has less to do with the actual park than its location to a large city. So the pros are that the metro is close there is even a trail from the park. It's about a 30 minute ride to the National Mall. The facilities are adequate. I made a reservation on line however upon arrival I was informed that a boy scout Troup was camping where I had chosen to camp. Ok no biggie. I was told to go to the walk in loop. The only real issue I have with this is until Midnight people were coming and setting up their campsites. Yes, as in just arrived! The other issue is that there were several other groups that were LOUD! I actually finally walked over and said something. I normally wouldnt but it was midnight! I know that when you camp close to a big city it's pretty normal to encounter people who are camping novices and taking their kids camping once. But gees the host really should just make a stroll around 11. They don't close the gates at this park.
