Where to camp near Washington D.C.?

I'll be heading up the Blue Ridge to the D.C. area and am wondering where a good place to camp with my Scamp. I'd heard that their is a campground in Virginia that is near a train station that goes into D.C. Any suggestions are appreciated...

Bull Run Regional Park and Fairfax RV Park are both places we have camped with an RV and are within striking distance of DC.

We stayed at Cherry Hill Park and took the metro bus/train into DC. We would stay there again.

Greenbelt Park. I think it's National Forest Service Park

Cherry Hill is a clean, commercial and expensive (around $60.00 per night) campground (Campground Reviews) that has a bus stop that gets you to the Metro, which gets you just about anywhere.

Greenbelt Park is run by the National Park service - inexpensive ($16 or $8 with senior card), but dry camping (with restrooms without showers) that is about 12 miles from DC, and a 4.5 mile drive to the Greenbelt Metro station. One note - there is a posting on the Greenbelt web page warning about ticks, and a couple of complaints about the same at Campground Reviews.

Thanks for the replies. I'll be reading up on the suggested campgrounds and making a choice. a short drive to the train station is a good option for my wife and I...

Hi,

We were happy with Duncan's Family Campground in Lothian, MD. Last summer the cost for the Shuttle Van was $6. per person, round-trip, to the Largo Metro Station.

Duncan's Family Campground - Near Washington DC and Annapolis
