Stayed July 1 through 5. Campground was as advertised, the staff was very helpful and friendly and I noticed that everyone was wearing a camp shirt so you knew who staffers were. I felt very well staffed as well.

Check-in was fast. We arrived 10:30 AM and no issue, went right to site. Site was bit tight. Stayed in 311. Fire ring was too close to neighbors, so you could not sit around the fire. Was not comfortable having fire that close to other rig. The premium

sites have bit more room so would book that next visit. Everything was clean and maintained at campground. Since campground is located very close to interstate you will hear cars humming by. But it really wasn't a deal breaker.

We chose this camp ground since close to DC and that it is, the bus system to and from metro was great. We chose to take car to station on weekend since free parking on weekends and holidays--plenty of parking there. Metro was very easy to navigate--safe and clean. The staff was very informative on how to sightsee. We did the bus night tour from campsite on our first night, it was fun. Our bus driver was very informative and knew his history of DC.

After sightseeing all day the pool at campground were very refreshing, also clean and life guards on duty. Pools were open till 10 at night. Splash park was really cute for little ones.

Plenty of lounge chairs at pools n splash park. Played mini golf; it was cute. $1.00 fee per player.

Did not travel with kids but did see activities planned and they had a outside movie screen with small stadium like seating.

Traveled with dog. Park does have areas but I did not see good fencing so did not let dog off leash. Walked and rode bikes to exercise him. He was fine. Hiking trail was all the way around campground it was marked and wood chips walk pretty much throughout. We enjoyed our stay and would recommend this campground. We camped at Cherry Hill Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Since no one across from us when we arrived back in was bit easier but could see issue if sites were full.

Amazing! This is a family oriented park, great playgrounds, pools, wadding fountains, par 3 golf, all in top notch condition. Free talks on access to DC and sites. Bus stop right in park for transportation to subways. Everything is well maintained and clean. Great place. We camped at Cherry Hill Park in a Motorhome.

This is our third time using this park. It is right after the 4th of July, so park wasn't too crowded. It is a perfect place to stay while visiting D.C. and the surrounding area. The bus access to the metro makes travel really easy. FHU site with WiFi and cable worked properly. We combined local over-the-air TV with cable to get a nice selection. The Star Cafe is a welcome place to eat when you are finished with a long day of exploring D.C. Food is freshly cooked after you order. Two wash rooms so there is always a washer and dryer available when you need it. We camped at Cherry Hill Park in a Travel Trailer.

Tips for other Campers:

Use the 83 bus to get to and from the College Park Univ of Maryland metro stop and then head into D.C. Leave your car/RV at the park. The park has added a Saturday afternoon guided monuments tour that we found very nice. Kind of pricey at $55/person, but it did include a box lunch with a bottle of water, and you are not driving, just riding. Be prepared to walk around the monuments. The bus can only get so close.

Lots for kids to do when not sight-seeing. Very nice pools and splash park, putt-putt golf, game room and movie night. Huge, clean laundry rooms. Easy to get into DC either by shuttle to the metro station, or a short drive to park there. The staff is very friendly and helpful with how to get around and what to see. We camped at Cherry Hill Park in a Motorhome.

We really enjoyed our stay at this park! Very well maintained, clean.. We used the pool almost nightly and even enjoyed some pizza from the cafe. The pizza was excellent, was not expecting what we got!

We had a very nice conversation with the person running the information/Metro booth at the campground. This campgrounds goes above and beyond and has excellent customer service.

One of the better stocked camping supply stores I have seen at a campground.

We would stay here again in a heartbeat! We camped at Cherry Hill Park in a Motorhome.

We had 5 in our party so we drove to the metro parking and paid $5.10 to park before taking the Metro. That was less than paying for the Metro bus to the Metro station. Figure out how to use the Metro and don't be afraid to ask questions.

This campground is very crowded. Sites are very close together. We had a standard back-in site (69) and it was barely long enough for our 45' motorhome. We struggled to find room for our car. Cars were parked all over the roads making it difficult for large RVs to pass at times. The park was clean, had lots of activities and facilities. The location was terrific for touring DC. We took the Metro each day and it was very convenient. We camped at Cherry Hill Park in a Motorhome.

Be sure to attend the sightseeing talk on your first day. It's very informative and will help you plan your visit. When you check in they will give you some great maps and metro information.

Visit the Dutch Country Farmers Market!!! Awesome food market not too far from the campground in Laurel, MD. Only open Thursday, Friday & Saturday.

Site was level , good size, and utilizes worked good except for the 30amp electric. My AC would almost stop when compressor tried to kick on. Talk to personal about low voltage and they decided that it was a 30 amp circuit breaker and when they replace it things seem to work. When asking about getting around DC they seemed to know how to get you places but they would talk so fast it was very hard to follow what they where saying. They need to slow down when talking. We camped at Cherry Hill Park in a Travel Trailer.

We stayed 4 nights at Cherry Hill while we visited Washington, DC. This is an urban campground in a college town. It's not Yosemite. Understanding that, we were very pleased. From start to finish the staff was friendly and accommodating. The facilities were clean and quite nice. They have a Star Cafe that serves ice cream and real food, including breakfast. Laundry facilities & TV room behind the cafe were top notch as well. Bathrooms were not huge but were clean and we never waited a minute to shower or potty. There are a lot of big rigs in this park so many people seemed to use their own facilities. The two pools and splash pad near the Star Cafe were clean and had lifeguards.

The lots are tight. We backed (30ft TT) in and had plenty of room for our F150. We had a premium site (909, excellent location) so we had a brick patio, a picnic table and a round patio table with chairs. We also had a grill, which we did not use. There was green space between us and the row behind us, but it's certainly fairly tight. Site 909 had extra road space for backing and it was close to the Star Cafe.

We arrived at 5 pm and at 6 pm we boarded a gray line bus right on site for a DC After Dark tour (excellent!). The other days we drove to the College Park metro station (green line/yellow during rush only) and went into the city. It's probably a 10-15 minute drive to the metro station and a good half hour into the city. $5.10/day to park at the metro station (free on weekends). You can pick up a bus at the campground to go to the metro if you choose.

The campground was big enough to explore on bike, and there was a fishing pond and other activities going on that we never had a chance to enjoy because we were focused on DC. They show family movies in the evenings. We camped at Cherry Hill Park in a Travel Trailer.

One of the best, if not the best park we have visited. Although the sites are a little close and there's an interstate nearby, It has everything else: bus transportation on the half-hour to the Metro, a nice little cafe, and very helpful staff. We camped at Cherry Hill Park in a Motorhome.

You can take the bus to a nearby shopping center that has a nice pub, grocery store and even a Best Buy. Don't bother to bring a dingy vehicle because you can use Uber or Lyft to get anywhere that the Metro doesn't go.

If you are visiting DC, this is the place to stay. It is called a "park", but it is more of a resort. We had a pull thru, but most are back in sites. All sites seem to be full hook up. Presentations on visiting DC including tours, buses and Metro trains. Service is excellent. We camped at Cherry Hill Park in a Travel Trailer.

We stayed here for five nights to visit the DC area. Very nice park and the staff that we dealt with were very nice. Our biggest complaint would be the Ballroom. At check-in we were asked if we had a preference for site and all we requested was being near a bath house. We were placed in a site near the cafe, laundry, and Ballroom. Unbeknownst to us, they rent out the ballroom for parties. Two out of five nights that we were at the park there were parties with loud music going on. As I type this it is after 10 pm, which is quiet hours according to the park rules, but I hear loud music from the ongoing party. These were not parties for park guests, but instead a venue for outside guests. The noise and traffic were very annoying. So my advice to others would be to make sure you are NOT near the ballroom. Other than that it is a very nice park. Very convenient to drive to the College Park Metro station to park & ride. We would stay here again. We stayed in a back-in, but did notice that some pull thrus were very close together. We camped at Cherry Hill Park in a Travel Trailer.

This is the closest park to the Washington D.C. area and within about 30 minutes of Baltimore and Annapolis. They are very friendly and seem to be customer oriented. They have a class on how to navigate the mass transit system in D.C., as well as sell tickets to some of the sight seeing businesses. There is also a mass transit bus stop at the park. If you need propane, just go to the office, and let them know. They will have it delivered to your site, even if you are gone, just pay when you come back. There is cafe in the park, as well as a camp store, which is one of the largest we have seen at a campground. The road in the park is asphalt, with the sites being gravel, but we had no problem getting leveled. Cable, antenna, and satellite TV all worked well. We camped at Cherry Hill Park in a Motorhome.

If you plan on visiting D.C. and this is your first time, make sure to go to the class on using the mass transit system. Also, we were informed by our congressional representative that the White House tours were booked up months in advance. Check out the Chesapeake and Ohio Canal National Park, at the Great Falls Tavern Visitor Center in Potomac, Md.

Expensive but excellent, full service resort with lots of amenities and a great location centered among D.C., Baltimore and Annapolis. Most of the sites are back-ins and not overly generous, but most are level and have some shade. They offer an excellent class on how to navigate the mass transit system in D.C. (which is clean, safe and excellent), as well as sell tickets for some of the tours in D.C. There is a mass transit bus stop at the park but we didn't use it: parking at the Cherry Hill Metro stop is $5.10 a day and (on weekends) parking is free. Excellent laundry facilities, well stocked store, dog runs, good Wi-Fi and cable and OTA television. We stayed there two weeks and still didn't get everywhere we had hoped to go but we had a great time! We paid more than we are used to paying but we got a lot for that money. We will definitely stay there again when we are in the area. We camped at Cherry Hill Park in a Motorhome.

The only reason for not giving the park a "10" is the sites were gravel. Very well maintained gravel. If you are touring the DC area, this is the place to stay. Extremely access to mass transportation from within the park or a short drive to the Metro. Sites were spacious, though not overly so, clean and easily fit our 45 ft 5th wheel. Staff was top notch. Did not use the WiFi. Pools were nice too. Very family friendly, but not loud. We will return. We camped at Cherry Hill Park in a Fifth Wheel.
