This used to be one of our favorite weekend getaways from DC to tent camp in the Summer. It was peaceful and a good place to get away, while not completely roughing it. The last several times I've gone, however, over the past two years, it's gotten very crowded and loud.

Sorry we did not go in April, we went in September. Weather has been very unpredictable, cold and dreary one day, hot another day. At night it can be quite cool.

In our spot, A40 it was right next to the car. Other spots were a bit farther. I passed on that was quite a ways down the hill.

"This is a camp ground"
"This is a campground, not a hotel. Pick sites in the interior of the campground with a little less wind."
"The showers require $1.75 in quarters."
"Go for tent only if you want quieter space."
"Avoid the center of G loop."
