A decent site to visit USNA and Annapolis, just don't expect much from the campground. It is a good launching point to visit the area, but nothing for the kids or family to do in the campground. The check-in staff was less than helpful and did not offer to reserve us a site, unlike other reviewers, even when calling to confirm our reservation the morning of our arrival. There is a traffic loop to turn-around near the MWR check-in, but there is no dedicated RV parking for check-in. Our site (#7) had broken glass all over the concrete pad; we called the office to switch but they wouldn't move us; they said they'd send someone out to clean up the glass, but they never did. The pads are concrete and level, but not very wide. The campground is gravel and on a decent incline. Our site was well shaded, especially from noon to sunset, without too much tree overhang. There were no fire rings, but some folks had fire pits burning. The campground is surrounded by the Midshipmen obstacle trail in which the Plebes were running in the mornings - great motivation! If you are in sites 1-4, you may have a group (20+) muddy Midshipmen in front of your campsite, resting after their run, so be aware. The bathhouse was clean, but in need of some updating and repair. The several layers of paint were peeling and rusting, and the bugs were enjoying the place as well. It was in a good state of police, but it wasn't the most comfortable bathhouse. The dump station didn't have a tight fitting for your sewer hose, so you get to enjoy the smells of your visit when flushing. Overall, a decent location and price, as long as you know what you are getting for such a low price.
