Camp Meade RV Park Featured
June 24 - July 8, 2017
The location of Ft Meade and the quality of the RV Park make it an ideal, reasonably-priced place to set up a base camp for visiting POI’s in Washington DC, Baltimore, Annapolis, Gettysburg, and all the other historic and cultural sites in the surrounding area. This is our fourth two-week stay at Ft Meade. The RV Park offers more than just RV back-in or pull-thru sites. They have a large “Group Camping Area” for tent campers with an adjacent restroom/shower facility. The tent area has very limited shade so it would probably be advisable to have some type of canopy to lessen the effects of being in the hot, direct sun. The park also offers four small, air conditioned cabins which are part of back-in sites #’s 1, 8 (Handicap Accessible), 2B & 3B. It appears that the RV site-Cabin combinations are under-utilized. The concept provides a cost-effective lodging solution for groups when an RV alone cannot accommodate the lodging needs of the group. We will have two guests joining us during our second week and have already planned their stay in our RV. If we have guests during future stays at Ft Meade we will strongly consider the RV site/Cabin combination. Like most military campgrounds, Ft Meade also seems to have their share of active-duty homesteaders. However, the presence of homesteader does not seem to deprive recreational campers from being able to get a site. There appears to be RV’s coming and going every day, leaving several sites vacant each day. Having said that, we would not risk coming here without a reservation. We like to believe that we have a positive attitude about Ft Meade, but also recognize that it has opportunities for improvement. This review process is not the forum to complain or influence change. There are other ways to communicate those efforts directly to the organizations that have the means to implement changes or improvements. And finally, while in this area enjoy everything it has to offer – especially a trip to the Chesapeake Bay area for steamed blue crabs or crab cakes.
