Their are a few things you should know about this place if your on the tow path and thinking
About stopping for the nite . The tent sites are just a few hundred yards from the municipal waste
Water plant ,and man the entire area smells bad, also no picnic tables at any of the tent sites
Even if you ask for one, and they will charge you $23 per tent that you set up, even the smallest
And if you don’t like this place once you have paid, absolutely no refunds . so I would have to say
This campgrounds is definitely not bike friendly.. keep on moving

DO NOT STAY HERE! This place is a rip! There are free sites within 8 miles in either direction on the trail. Go poop in their facilities, then move on.

This may be a little late coming, but concur. Did not get a warm and fuzzy feeling when we spoke to the staff. Ended up going up to Harpers Ferry and staying at the Teahorse Hostel. Yes, don’t waist your time or money here. This place is a rip-off!

I stayed at the Brunswick Family Campground in May of 2012 during a thru-ride from Pitt to D.C. I was only there for the night but my experience was fine. The staff was very friendly and suggested that I set my tent up under one of their picnic pavilions since rain was predicted. It was nice not having to deal with wet gear in the morning. They also delivered ice and firewood to my site and the hot showers available there was certainly welcome since I was camping the entire time (no budget busting B&B stops). Regarding the wastewater plant. I didn't smell anything during my visit. I think I paid about $6 for the night. Not sure how that would be considered a rip-off.

I was there the end of March, beginning of April 2013. I might have been their first customer of the year. The showers were clean and hot, that was the best thing for me. The worst was the train noise during the night.

Stayed here on the way down to DC and on the way back. HOT showers and friendly people. ONLY PAID $5 OFF THE TRAIL. Ordered take out that was delivered and slept under a dry pavilion that was available. I plan on staying this summer too. Highly recommended.
