We stopped in the Washington DC area for a few days in June to revisit some favorite spots, check out some new ones and catch up with friends in the area.
While we enjoyed visiting the Library of Congress (had never been – and we lived in the area for 15 years) and re-visiting Mount Vernon, one aspect of the trip we really enjoyed was the RV park at Fort Belvoir Virginia. A new addition to Belvoir in Northern Virginia. Fort Belvoir has grown in the past 15 years – with an impressive new Army Hospital – a great addition is the RV Park found next to an inlet of the Potomac River.
We were lucky to get a site right on the river. With full hook-ups, we had a great view of the water. Laundry facilities and a bath house – both new – are available for guests. The camp ground offers ~5 spaces, the minority on the water, many pull thru and more that back up to the woods. The park is behind a coded gate, so only those with the code can get into the campground.
This is in addition to the limited access to the Army base. We loved this park and hope to go back in the future. For those with pets, they offer lots of space for dogs to run.
You can get a site with your Military ID, Retired Military ID, your Current or Retired Civilian CAC card and other Federal Government employees (State & FBI). I would suggest you disregard the negative reviews about this park – it is great!
