If you have any type of camper that is over 26 feet in length, avoid camping at Prince William Travel Trailer Village! After the fact we found there to be other, better campgrounds in the DC area that we could have stayed at --- some with public transporation (the traffic around here is insane) that would have virtually picked us up at our front door...But I digress... When I booked our campground over the phone the lady I spoke to said she would be giving us one of their 40 foot pull-through campsites, and assured me that our 37 foot, five-slide fifth wheel would fit nicely on our campsite with room to spare so that our Ford F450 could be parked right next to it on the site's adjoining paved car parking spot. Upon arrival, we found their 40 foot pull-through sites to be no more than 26 feet long, and I had to use a shoe-horn to get our trailer to even fit kitty-corner across the site. And as for our tow vehicle, it ended up having to be parked in their 'overflow' parking lot. Did I mention that they don't have 50amp electric service? To get to our campsite I actually had to back our 37 foot fifth wheel down the exit road (actually its a glorified paved path) because other large rigs were so badly overhanging their pull-through sites (evidently they didn't go to the extent we did when we wedged ourselves into our campsite) they were literally blocking the entrance way we would have normally used to pull through to our campsite. I reported this to the campground management, but realized later that so many rigs were blocking the roads everywhere throughout the campground, that there was no way that anything could be done about it --- so basically if your rig is over 26 feet, you're looking at becoming part of the problem here. Even after the extra effort we put into making sure that our trailer wasn't sticking out into the front and back roads (no small feat), we returned home at the end of each day half expecting to find that someone had plowed into the side of our trailer which we could only eke inches off the roads. Did I mention that the sites are so small they don't allow campfires? The only saving grace for this campground is that the water pressure is great -- Oh, did I mention that the day after we arrived they had a water main break and the water pressure for the rest of our stay there was bearly a trickle? Did I mention that we didn't care for this campground?
