    Camping / Lodging near the Germantown, MD?

    I'm thinking about doing the MoCo Epic this year. What are the closest campgrounds and hotels near Germantown? I'm guessing stuff fills up pretty quickly for that weekend

    I've camped at Little Bennett, its a nice campground that has full shower and bathroom accommodations.

    Montgomery Parks: Facilities - Little Bennett Campground

    There are others around the area, but I haven't been to them.

    Cunningham Falls is about a ~30 minute drive, so probably not the best. It has decent accommodations. There are several hotels around the Germantown area...the Hampton Inn and the Fairfield Inn and Suites are about 10 minutes (max) from the launch site. The Fairfield is in the same parking lot as Bailey's (bar), Longhorn Steakhouse, Red Robin and about a 2 minute walk from Taco Bell, Chik Fil-A, Panera,The Green Turtle (bar) and a movie theatre. Probably your best bet for hotels near the launch site/festivities, but probably not the most wallet freindly.
