WHAT A GREAT CAMPGROUND!!!! We wanted to visit the Washington DC area and do some sightseeing and Lunga Park was the best campground to do that. We were amazed at the amount of traffic on I-95 ALL THE TIME! So, we took the Virginia Railway Express (VRE) train from Quantico to Union Station in Washington DC ... then walked outside to get on our "Hop On, Hop Off" tourbus for the Washington DC tour. No traffic headaches. This campground is without doubt the best military campground we have ever stayed at. If you are planning a visit to Lunga Park, ask for Site 37 (the best site in the campground) or Site 16 (the second best site in the campground). [The last 4 pictures are of our RV on Site 16 and Site 37, respectively.] We experienced "brown out" conditions while on Site 16 and our 50 Amp surge suppressor saved the day. Recommend you get one if you don't have one. The lake is beautiful and the wildlife will amaze you ... deer are everywhere. The Marine Corps Base Exchange and Commissary are also fantastic. The MCB is 8 miles from the campground, so it was inconvenient when you make several trips to and from the campground to the MCB. While there, we visited Mount Vernon and it was great. As was the Marine Corps Museum. You can buy all of your tickets at the MCB ITT office for sightseeing trips. I give this campground our highest rating. The staff was very nice, too.
