Aug 16, 2016 - Prince William Forest

Unfortunately we must leave. We have a wonderful time even in the really hot weather. We were staying at the Capitol KOA, nice park, no shade but only 15 miles from Ann's. We are headed to Prince William Forest RV Campground just 65 miles down the road. The park is in the trees so we will be in the shade. We head out to take a tour through Prince William Forest NP. During the depression Roosevelt brought inner city kids from poor families and in some cases the mothers also here during the hot summers. During WWII years 1942-1945 the OSS...

May 25, 2015 - DC with Bonds and Chens

We arrived at the Prince William National Forest (Dumfries, VA) on May 21. Site was a tight fit for our 36' rig, lending credence to reports we have heard about possible small spaces in State and/or National Parks. The lady who checked us in kindly allowed us to move to a slightly larger site, even though the park was almost completely booked. When we moved to the new location we discovered that it wasn't level (important for RV refrigerator operation), so John found a Home Depot and came back with boards to slide under our leveling jacks...

May 26, 2010 - DUMFRIESii

I'm sending along this few days old picture, as it's one of the few that I can get through on this service...till I upgrade, when I get to a wifi service next. And it does show you that we are on the road...have been through SC and NC, and are now nestled in a nice campground in Dumfries, VA...about 30 miles SW of Washington, and an easy 20 miles from Chris (easy, that is in the middle of the day). We are here visiting with him today; tomorrow plan to go into Washington and tour the Newseum--a fairly new museum that is said to have an...

MAY 23, 2009 beginning mileage 133621 9:00 a.m. Today we headed out once again I-95 we traveled through NC into Virginia and stopped for the night in Dumfries, VA about 20-30 miles outside of Washington DC. We camped at Travel Trailer Village Park, it was a nice wooded park with paved roads and cost once again $33.00, camping up this way is a little pricey as we cannot find any passport America parks. We had breakfast in today and we ate lunch out at Taco Bell. Tonight the park host had smores for anybody who wished to enjoy so we did and...

Nov 4, 2008 - Dumfries, VA - Mount Vernon

We stayed at Prince William Park in Dumfries for two nights and went to Mount Vernon, George Washington's home on the Potomac River - only about 12 miles away. The house, surrounding countryside and visitor's center were all great. We went on a "National Treasure - Book 2" tour of Mount Vernon, which was featured in this popular kids movie. We were able to see other areas of Mount Vernon that are not on their regular tours like the cellar, the ice house and down by the wharf on the Potomac River. We all got a kick out of the tour because...
