Near Washington D.C. in no particular order...
410/267-2385 Annapolis Naval Station
703/784-2014 Quantico Marine Corps Base
703/545-6700 Fort Belvoir
301/619-8000 Fort Detrick
301/677-6261 Fort Meade
202/562-2673 Bolling Air Force Base
301/981-9111 Andrews Air Force Base
The above telephone numbers are for the main base operator. Ask for the
Public Affairs office and they can help you or refer you to the proper
person. The exception is Quantico, where I've listed the MWR Recreation
number, which is who we went through to get a campsite.
Our troop has camped at Annapolis, Belvoir, and Quantico. All have been
satisfactory. I think any on the above list would be good.
Best of luck,
