Beautiful in Fall

This is definitely a family campground.  So my activities for kids and places to run around. Pirate's Cove waterpark is definitely a highlight in summer

Boating in summer from kayaks to motorboats

Thumbs up

Very nice staff and clean facilities. Water park is great.

Woods and City

We stayed here for 3 nights at a back in with w/e. We enjoyed sitting around the campfire at night and walking the dogs down to the water. We were right next to a hiking trail that went down to the water and a beach area. We were working in Arlington/DC only a 25 min drive away and it was nice to come home to some nature.

Great Place to stay

This was a great place to stay! Close t9 everything D.C. has to offer while being far enough away to be in the woods. We went during the fall, but the summer woukd be an ideal time to go so you can enjoy the water park and bay.

Family Camping Success

We had a great time here over a long weekend in August. The check in is a breeze and the staff is super nice and helpful. They gave us a great intro to the park as we were first timers. They informed us that they had a scavenger hunt for the kids going all weekend, they had an outdoor movie scheduled for Friday night, a campfire story time scheduled for Saturday night and crafts scheduled for Sunday morning. This was music to our ears as we camp with our 3 and 1 year old. There is also a pool/water park in the park as well as a nice network of trails. There is plenty of things to do here to keep a family occupied.

We got a site on thr inner loop and it backed to the playground and the bathhouse. The site was spacious. We are tent campers but almost all our neighbors were in an RV or trailer. The site had water and electric which was nice. The bathhouse is standard but also has laundry and an outdoor dish washing station. The campground was quiet which is nice.

This was an amazing weekend for us and we will definitely be back. There is boat rental a short walk down the trsil from the campgrounds and the pool and disc golf course are another short trail walk away.

stayed in spring

loved staying here with family for vacation! the park for kids is fun. the bathrooms are very clean. the popup camper fit nicely on the site. respectful neighbors on the campgrouds and clean sites. we got there a bit early for the pool but it looked nice!

Go-to weekend spot

Pohick Bay is my go-to weekend camping spot. Just a few miles outside DC, Pohick Bay is a hidden gem in the area. I’d recommend taking in a game of disc golf on their 18 hole course.

Loved the view of the Potomac!

This park is a great spot for tent or pop-up camping. It had a wonderful hiking trail overlooking the Potomac River. We loved, loved, loved the water park feature. We can wait to visit again.

Family fun

We camp here twice a year Memorial Day and Labor Day. It’s a clean and laid back park that has fun programs fir the kids. We camp around the playground and they have several events scheduled right there so the kids don’t have to go far and the parents can relax and watch. The little camp store is fun to visit for the little ones as well with some live reptiles to see. There is also hiking, fishing and frisbee golf all within walking distance of the camp ground.

the restrooms/bathhouse are well maintained and cleaned several times a day.

Eagle haven!

Beautiful campground located near the National Harbor. Eagles everywhere! Large clean sites. Great staff!
