If you'd prefer to camp closer to the Chesapeake Bay, check out the Washington D.C./Capitol KOA Holiday. Situated about 30 miles from D.C. near Severn River, this KOA provides spacious pads with full hookups and max-amp electricity. Pets are welcome and accommodated with an on-site dog park. The campground also offers a shuttle in summer so you can get to and from D.C. When you're not touring the Capitol grounds, you can laze by the pool or rent a bicycle and explore Maryland's countryside. You'll also have a few home comforts like Wi-Fi access, laundry facilities, and restrooms.

Things to do in Washington DC

Things to do in Washington DC

Planning on taking your Washington D.C. trailer rental downtown? Unfortunately, the U.S. capital isn't very RV friendly — traffic is some of the worst in the country, and navigating the sprawling metro area can be tricky if you're new to D.C. However, if you plan to drive into the city, an excellent place to park is Union Station, which has spaces for smaller motorhomes. Luckily, D.C. has a world-class metro system, which makes getting around easy. Many nearby campgrounds also provide shuttle services to D.C.

With some advanced planning, RVers can spend the day touring the country’s most famous building, the White House. Parts of the tour will take you through sections of the White House. Have any questions during the tour? A U.S. Secret Service Agent is stationed in each room to answer your queries. If you’d prefer to skip the inside of the White House, you can still tour areas of President’s Park. Your best bet is to begin your tour at the White House Visitor Center.

Campers searching for an excursion that'll keep their kids entertained should consider the Smithsonian National Museum of Natural History. One of 17 Smithsonian museums in D.C., the National Museum of Natural History is one of the world's most popular museums. The museum has a massive collection of over 145 million objects, ranging from ancient Egyptian mummies to a near-complete Tyrannosaurus rex skeleton.

Washington D.C. can get a bit overwhelming, so if you're looking to escape the hustle and bustle, spend a few hours at Rock Creek Park. It's the largest park in D.C., covering over 1,700 acres of lush forests along Rock Creek. The park is ideal for walking through the trees, with 32 miles of trails, including area favorites, the Western Ridge Trail and Valley Trail. For a more tranquil visit, take a load off and spend the day creekside fishing or picnicking.
