Thumbs up

Planning on going to DC for a few days in June 07 and wondered if anyone had any experience with campgrounds around that area. Suppose it would be nice to be not too far from the train rail. Thanks for any help

Looks like quite a place. With the kids, runs about $60 / nite . Maybe the place but I'm hoping I can find one not quite so much but I am afraid of primitive in June since we like the A/C. I have awhile but this maybe the place instead of paying to park at the train?
Kids ought to love it.

Google up the Virginia State Parks, you may have to settle for a bit longer ride but for under $25.00 w/water and elec, dump station. The transportation system in Washington is 2nd to none and you can catch them all around the perimeter of the city. One park that comes to mind is Shenandoah River State Park. Virginia is proud of their State Park system and it shows in all I've been in. Good Luck

Lake Fairfax Park is a nice place in Reston VA. About 10 miles out of DC. Here is a link

Thanks to all . Those are some good ideas although there seems to be a problem with reserveamerica website right now but maybe later.
Virginia state parks look interesting.

If you don't mind an hour or so drive from DC Lake Anna State Park is a beautiful location. Also, Cherry Hill in Winchester VA is nice, and has some sewer hookups.

We went to Greenbelt National park last month (10 minutes from Greenbelt metro station- green line). Very nice place. a lot of deers...
see http://www.marcbarriere.com/?p=251
But no services. 16$/night.
There is a very good Web report on camping in Washington DC

Chris: I don't know if you already made your plans, but we just stayed at Greenbelt Campground in DC last week for 4 days. We found it to be a very nice, heavily wooded park with lots of wildlife and good safe asphalt roads for the kids to bike and scooter. There were hot showers and flush toilets and utility sinks for washing dishes. The park was not very crowded at all when we were there and most days we had a lot of privacy. The campground is 2 miles into the 1100 acre park, but the interstate entrance is just a block or two from the gate to the park. The prices can't be beat (only$8 with Golden Age Pass, and regular $16). Because of the wooded sites, it seemed 10 degrees cooler than in town and there was a breeze so we didn't need any AC, even though it was in the 90's. There is a ranger station at the entrance, and the park was patroled regularly. The village of Greenbelt is just a few blocks away and has free internet at the library and the town itself is worth a visit for the interesting history. It was an FDR WPA planned development community, one of 3 in the U.S. during the early 1930's, so it has an art deco theme. As mentioned, the downside is no electric hookups. We used our battery power conservatively for the 4 days we were there, and had a very enjoyable stay.
