If you are planning a visit to Washington, D.C., you may be surprised to learn that you can camp a mere 13 miles from the White House. Greenbelt Park in Maryland is an urban oasis, which offers 174 campsites. So if you are looking for a budget vacation, this may be the perfect spot for you. Contact the park directly for information on camping.
Park staff request that campers do not bring any campfire wood into the park. Rangers want to protect the trees in Greenbelt Park from the Emerald Ash borer. This is one of the simple ways you can protect our national parks for present and future generations.
