I have been to Quantico on several occasions and there have been tent campers there each time. One of the areas of Lunga Park is dedicated to tent campers. I have seen scouts camped there.

Quantico is a great, cost effective alternative to high priced campgrounds. The problem is getting your reservations before all of the sites are booked. We love Quantico.

I'm heading up to the DC area this summer with my sister and we're looking for a semi-inexpensive (we're trying to be realistic about the DC area) place to stay. Do any of the C/G's mentioned have a place for plain ole tent camping? It sounds like Quantico is a no-go for that, but what about the others?


GG.. Come on down! Lunga has plenty of tent sites.. great tent sites.. bad point is pit toilets..



Pine Area.. see site map under state listing..


You are allowed to use the Station Gym, Showers just past the commissary and PX by the Air Facility

For DC.. ride the train.. www.vre.org/

We have stayed at Ft Meade quite a few times. I know they have a base shuttle, but as far as I know it does not go off base. I'm not even sure if the shuttle stops at the campground. The amtrak train station is not far, MWR can give directions, but you will need a car to get there. Now for tent camping they do allow tents, but you will pay the same as everyone else. This is where it may not be worth it since, Ft Meade is one of the most expensive military campgrounds at any military location. You can check out the price on this site. During peak seasons it can be hard to get a back in site which are cheaper. Be prepared and bring enough money, MD and DC, along with the campground is not cheap. If money is not a problem you will love the Smithsonian. Take some really comfortable shoes, it is a lot to see.

Sorry just noticed, I should of probably directed you to the post on this site, titled FT Meade. It gives information on the campground, along with somethings I already mentioned.
