A quiet haven just south-east of DC; Cosca Regional RV Park

While some RV parks, like Cherry Hill Park, in the DC area are fetching upwards of $100 a night, and getting great reviews from those who seek entertainment and amenities, Cosca Regional offers a quiet haven. Just south-east of DC, this 609-acre property in Clinton, Maryland, features both natural, undeveloped areas and land that has been developed for recreational use. The most you will pay here is $23 per night.

Reservations for approximately 25 campsites are accepted March through October. Some are smaller, back-in sites under 30′ and some are pull-through for larger units. All are paved, and about half are level. All have water, fire pits, and picnic tables, while only a few have electric hook ups. There is a bathhouse and playground area. A dump station is convenient upon exiting. WiFi is weak throughout the park, but I could get three bars that accommodated Zoom meetings without interruption near the two large groups sites, opposite the entrance.

The roads are a bit narrow in places but adequate for most rigs. Traffic can be heavy and faster than the posted speed limit. Many eateries, stores, and services are within 5 miles. The 1/2 mile main path that passes all the site, forms a circle that is ideal for walking and biking jaunts and the backside is near a residential area that can be seen through the trees to campers in sites 8-12. There are a few reminders that reality is close! Planes and helicopters can be heard, and highway noise penetrates the chirping of birds, but most won’t find it intrusive. While there in April, only handful of tents, motor homes and small trailers visited with slightly more traffic on the weekend.

Overall, Cosca Regional is an excellent option for budget-conscious RV enthusiasts visiting the DC area. It’s on many campers’ preferred stops list, and the reasonable rates ensure that you can enjoy a peaceful and comfortable stay without breaking the bank.
