This is my 3rd year staying at Andrews Fam Camp for the Winter, I have been pleased for the price for what they have. This year someone decided to raise the rate from 600 a month to 900 a month. Its not worth that much. The internet doesn't reach to the campers, no cable, only 30 AMP hook ups for now. When it gets 32 degrees or below the water has to be disconnected from the camper, the bathrooms are rough looking, I do think they are clean. The positive thing there is they have concrete pads. There is a camp ground 15 minutes away from the base that the water can stay connected, has cable, bathrooms are much better,the internet is much better, and has a pool. They are 950 a month.
An embarrassment to the Presidential Flagship Base. It is run down and unkempt. They are suppose to be upgrading the park as it is old. However, there is nothing being done except roped off areas, un-mowed areas and a very shabby appearance. The 30 amp service is so weak that we could only run one thing at a time. If a/c, then no hot water. Couldn't use microwave or convection oven at all. It was 94 and I didn't want to turn off a/c for that. But had to bite the bullet to take a shower. The woman in the office is full of attitude - in my opinion. She accused me of telling her I had a shorter unit than I do and would not let me tell her otherwise. I would not say we are shorter than what we are - that would not be to our benefit in any way. Her tone is condescending and rude. We will not be back. It is a shame too because it is a great location for visiting DC.
The only thing that is nice here is the location. Easy to get into and out of DC. The rest of the site is pretty run down with about half of the sites closed for some reason. The employees are very rude and abrasive and believe the amenities are there for them. Manager told us we could not change the channel in the day room area because the TV was there for management. The main thing is you are getting what you pay for at this site.
Pass on by Joint Base Andrews... You would think with it's importance, location (proximity to Washington DC) and value to the military community at-large in the area this would a be a superb, prime and logistically a top RV campground for thru travel, visiting DC and the surrounding area (military, historical and vacationing) in general. As someone who lives (16 years and 20 minutes) nearby this "campground" it's said to say it is one of the worse if the worst I've ever seen. No CATV, internet and very limited Wi-Fi. Must use dump station that's barely accessible, and also deal with 90-95% homesteaders. The road leading to it is bumpy (potholes), the road inside CG is gravel/dirt and the sites are tight. You may have at any time share water with other campers. Baths/showers are dirty and need upgrading. Camp managers and hosts are not friendly or helpful. DON'T BUY fuel on post. It is 10-15 cent higher than off post. Your best bet is Quantico MCB or Fort Belvoir, Virginia, Fort Meade Maryland. On the good side: Commissary, BX and other services on base are great.
Ditto the last review. We arrived on a Saturday, got our site assignment envelope from the board, proceeded to the assigned site to find it occupied. Went to 2 host sites, no one available. Found an emergency phone number at host site, called and they said they would be back in 20 minutes. So we sat in our RV waiting. While waiting another guest arrived and found his assigned site occupied. Host arrived, opened office, and was able to find a open site. Stayed there 8 nights, Office closed Sat&Sun,hours Mon&Tues 8-1, W,T,F, 8-4. Host were never around when office was closed. FamCamp map shows 3 host sites. I saw them cleaning the showers one time, I wonder what their job description is? This is the 21st AF FamCamp We have visited, along with many other Army and Navy RV parks, the has to be one of the lowest rated.
