Brunswick Family Campground has been voted to have the most awesome family camping sites in the Washington Metropolitan Area. The recognition was given by the e-savvy company Red Tricycle whose mission is to “help busy parents have more fun with their kids.” According to their website, “Red Tricycle's Totally Awesome Awards” lets parents nominate and vote for the best family-friendly products, parenting tips and resources in their community.”
Brunswick Family Campground is located on a quiet stretch of river frontage land beside the Potomac River and the C&O Canal National Historic Park in Frederick County, Maryland. The campground is owned by the city of Brunswick, Maryland and is managed by River & Trail Outfitters, the oldest family outfitter in the Harpers Ferry region. Surrounded by beautiful views and abundant wildlife, campers can explore nature by canoes, kayaks, tubes or bikes conveniently available for rent onsite at the campground, through River & Trail Outfitters. Fishing can be done from the shore or on a boat launched at the campground’s public boat ramp. The campground has 100 Tent Sites and 48 RV Sites with electric service and water hookups. Additional facilities include a dumping station for campers, a bathhouse with hot showers, a campground store and vending machines. There are three covered pavilions with plenty of room for groups, and picnic tables are located throughout the campground. A children’s playground, along with game areas for horseshoes and volleyball and basketball courts, round out this uber family-friendly campground. Other attractions nearby include whitewater rafting on the scenic Shenandoah and Potomac Rivers, the Appalachian Trail, Harper’s Ferry National Historic Park, Antietam National Battlefield and the Brunswick Railroad Museum. Restaurants, crafts and antique shops are also nearby. Campers can conveniently visit Washington, D.C. by commuter trains Monday--Friday. The train station is located 3/4 mile from the campground, within easy walking distance.
Campers can access the campground by road, by bicycle on the C&O Canal Towpath or by boat on the Potomac River. For a perfect “Get Out Of the City Package,” take a camping weekend by riding a Friday commuter train to Brunswick and returning on a Monday morning commuter to D.C.!
