Close to DC $$ clean, family friendly, large sites, great bathhouse, wifi not good. Surprised, but this is our first stay at a military camp where we never heard morning or evening colors? Easy on and off base. Would stay here again. Site #48 was muddy due to a leaking faucet that had been leaking for sometime.
The sites are very nice. It is well maintained. The wifi connection is terrible. Most of the time you have to use your cell internet. We were told that after the 50 dollar across the board increase, the internet would improve. It hasn't changed at all. They have a building empty on site that could be used for many things, if they only used it for a RV park hangout. It would be nice. It would be nice if they had an enclosed dog area within the RV park.
This Camp is expensive and I got in before they raised the rates. We were in site #5. The Verizon signal was weak but tolerable. The wifi worked ok most of the time. The people in the Office were friendly and helpful. The sites are well maintained and lawn ornaments etc. are not allowed. Although it says there is a 14 day limit, it appeared more than a few sites were occupied by active duty assigned there. Most days they were at least 90% full. They are right on the Potomac (15 minutes south of Mount Vernon) but only 25% have any water view. You are close to DC, the Air & Space Annex is less than an hour, as well as many attractions. Overall the facilities are A+ and I probably would stay there again if I had to be in that area.
Planned on a whim a trip to Washington DC .......so we looked for a travel camp near our destination. So glad we found Fort Belvoir a really nice place on the Potomac River. It's the most we've ever paid to stay @ a military campground but we feel it was worth it. Not far from DC & all it has to offer & we took a roadtrip to Williamsburg. We stayed in our 37" travel trailer had more than enough room.
Great campground, lots of new updates with nice concrete pads on all sites, clean bath house with newer laundry facilities. Clean and well maintained overall. Outdoor rec office is relatively close with lots of options for rentals at fairly reasonable prices. Shopette with gas, food, ice is also fairly close to campground. Gate code prevents lots of ride through traffic, fishing pier very close and also very well kept. Overall a good experience, only negative is that the soap dispensers in the bath house may have been filled with sulphur. Other than that, a very nice experience.
Great location for visiting the DC area. We were able to fit our 38' coach and car trailer into a pull-thru site (#24) without unhitching the trailer. This actually worked to our advantage since the hookups were a bit forward on the site. Other than that, this is a nice park by most standards and we will return if we are ever in the area again.
R.K. left this review using the Directory software: - This was the perfect RV park for us to test and experience our "maiden voyage" with a new AS Interstate with all its amenities, well most of them. The cable guy was still working on the wifi and cable during our one-niter, said it wouldn't be ready until the following week; no discount offered minus the cable and wifi though. Since we don't live far I'm sure we'll be back again soon, being newbies to the RV lifestyle. For sure though the $60 price tag will keep our visits to a very short stay, 1-3 days.
