About
Lots of level places to park, mostly grass, asphalt and gravel surrounded by woods. No water hookup, but water fill (close to camp sites, one site may require 2 hoses) and dump with permission (dump is not at your camp site, you must move your rig to dump). Very peaceful with lots of wildlife. Playground for kids by the house, and lots of room to run and bike. $15 a night for electric hook up (non optional) and $10 for a dump. For electric, we have (2) 30 amp RV plugs,. If you are staying here we ask that you plug in and use our power for the duration or your stay. Please keep your AC thermostat at 79 degrees and heat pump/ electric heat at 58 degrees when you are out of the RV for extended times. In other words help us and the planet. No fire rings or fire pits No wood fires or Charcoal grills. Propane fire ring OK with permission. Propane grills OK. If you need to cancel or change dates, that’s fine, life happens, but please let us know as soon as you know (not the day after you are supposed to arrive) we try to schedule so we are around when you arrive to get you placed, and go over power, water, dump, and local attractions. We have full schedules, and may have other things to do if you are not coming. Please show this courtesy to all hosts, it is what keep this wonderful system available for all of us. Suggested Local Attractions:15- 20 Min to DC Metro Shady Grove Station (which has plenty of car parking). 1 Hour Drive to DC or Baltimore (2 hours in rush hour). 35-45 Min to Frederick, 1 Hour to Hagerstown, or Charles town / Harper's Ferry. 75 Min to Annapolis Md 75 Min to Gettysburg
