Used this as a base to visit Alexandria and to visit friends in Bethesda and Arlington, so it was centrally located for our needs. Campground was very nice with things to do, but many of the seasonal activities still closed (water park). Was there for Cherry Blossom Parade and park had plenty of campers (many looked like season-long rentals and were empty) but did not fill up as we expected. We camped at Cherry Hill Park in a Motorhome.

Best place to stay if you are visiting DC. Great Wifi. Great Cable. Bus service from Cherry Hill to Metro. We drove our car the 10-20 minutes to the Metro. The bus has stops to make, so it is quicker to take your car. $5.10 a day to park. But the bus could be relaxing too. Make sure to attend the DC orientation. They have one each day at 4pm. Very helpful!! Just a great campground. Very nice staff. Only reason we gave it a 9 instead of a 10 is depending on where you are the traffic can be very loud. We stayed on Arctic Circle loop. We could hear traffic, but nothing that kept us awake at night. Sites are rock with RR tie boarders. Roads are paved. We camped at Cherry Hill Park in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

You could stay two weeks with no rest and not see it all. We really enjoyed the ride to Mt. Vernon. You can take you dog. Washington had several dogs on his property. Dogs are only allowed inside two buildings, but they can go everywhere else. Much of the tour is outside. My husband went into Washington's house first. Staff understands the "dog switch" and let me go to the head of the line when it was my turn. Sitting on the veranda over looking the Potomac was unbelievable.

Great park to stay at if you if you are planning on visiting DC. Bus stops at the park or the Metro is a ten minute drive. The staff is friendly and extremely helpful. It appears the back-in sites are the better sites. Lots of amenities, with great wifi. The dog walker is fantastic. Overall it is a bit spendy, but we would stay there again. We camped at Cherry Hill Park in a Travel Trailer.

We selected this park because of the location, close to Washington DC. We were pleasantly surprised that the park was so nice. This is a large park with all kinds of activities and services. We didn't get the chance to experience many of these items in the park because we spent all 4 days in DC and didn't return to the park until dinner time.
They are doing lots of work improving the park and adding additional buildings and open spaces.
If you looking for a park to take advantage of visiting the National Capital, this is it. The bus line comes right into the park for a trip to the subway system but you can also drive to the station as well. It is only about 10 minutes away and the parking is only $5 for the whole day and free on the weekends.
We would definitely stay here again. We camped at Cherry Hill Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Tips for other Campers:

Visit Washington DC but check with your state representative if you want tips and reservations on visiting various sites throughout the city.

Stayed here one night then stored trailer while we spent Easter in DC with our kids. Very nice staff. Nice store. Huge campground. Nice area to walk dogs. Lot spacing was very close with a sunny/open exposure. Site surface was a concrete pad. We camped at Cherry Hill Park in a Travel Trailer.

Tips for other Campers:

Convenient to DC.

This is an excellent campground for a visit to the Washington, D.C. area. Staff were very friendly, helpful and courteous. They had excellent directions to major sights in the area as well as helpful hints and info about using the public transportation, the Metro subway and Metrobus. A Metrobus stops in the park several times a day. The park has a great little cafe and large laundry area. We didn't have children with us but there are plenty of places for kids to enjoy. Our site was a hard gravel/asphalt mix back in that had plenty of room for our 42 ft trailer. There is some freeway noise but this is a major metropolitan area and it didn't bother us any. Easy to get in and out of park. Would stay here again if ever in the area. We camped at Cherry Hill Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Tips for other Campers:

We drove to the Greenbelt Metro station instead of using the bus that stopped in the park. The bus ride was longer than what it took to drive to the station 2.5 miles away. Very easy to navigate the subway system in DC.

$59 per night was for a mostly level gravel site with full hookups. Our site #31 was surrounded by grass and treed at the back. There was a brick patio upon which were placed a wooden picnic table and steel table with springy chairs. There was a pedestal BBQ unit and a fire ring. The facility as a whole is well maintained and very attractive. All employees we encountered were friendly and helpful. This campground is located near to Washington and Baltimore so there are abundant sights to see and, of course, every amenity is available. AT&T service was five bars of 4G LTE and Verizon service was three bars of 4G LTE. Wi-Fi is included in the rate and it was always snappy during our stay. We received 69 digital over-the-air TV stations and many radio stations. Road noise was white noise for us. We camped at Cherry Hill Park in a Motorhome.

This is a very well maintained and landscaped campground. Our site was level and our full hookups were in good working order. Interior roads were paved, campsites had crushed stone. Noticed a multitude of site sizes to accommodate the many different types of RV's. Wi-Fi worked well, good signal on our Verizon cell phone. Bathrooms and showers were clean. Showers have plenty of hooks, space and a large bench to put your stuff on. Geography at the campground was open to lightly wooded and mostly level. We found the food at the campground café & grill to be disappointing. Camp store & office was well stocked and very functional. Highway noise throughout the campground. Friendly and helpful staff. We enjoyed this campground and would certainly return or recommend this place to anyone. We camped at Cherry Hill Park in a Travel Trailer.

Tips for other Campers:

We found the café at the Natural History Museum to be above our expectations; we also found the daily 4pm travel class at the campground community room to be very informative.

Stayed in space 27, one of the better sites. Convenience to DC is the park's best appeal. Use the Metro, don't drive in, metro is best option. You can drive or take bus from the RV Park to metro station, we drove ourselves. Park does all they can to make your stay a good one. 2 good size and clean laundry rooms. Cafe is handy after a long day in DC. Park is close to almost anything you could need. BIG dog area and plenty of trash cans throughout the park. Will use this park again. Space 27 is good for DirecTV reception. We camped at Cherry Hill Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Tips for other Campers:

Avoid supermarket next to Home Depot on Cherryhill Blvd, slow service and lower quality foods, better store on Power Line Blvd about mile from park

This was our 3rd visit to the park and agree with others comments about the location and how well they help you navigate Washington DC. We requested a pull-thru site for our 9 day stay and that was a big mistake! These sites have 2 RVs parked in opposite directions with a shared water hookup and power & sewer between them. We had about 2 feet between us and the RVs parked next to us when they put out their slides. The closeness blocked out all of our light and view from that entire side of our coach. We have hydraulic leveling system but the site side to side was so un-level that we needed to drive up on boards and noticed other RVs that had their tires off the ground. If we were to stay again we would not request a pull-thru site and pay more for a total lack of privacy. We camped at Cherry Hill Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Tips for other Campers:

Drive to College Park Metro Station. Parking is $5.10 M-F and free on S&S. For Seniors the park sells the Senior Metro Smart Trip card for $2. You put money on it at the Metro Station and pay 1/2 priceThe Grayline Day Tour sold by the campground is a good way to start your visit and see the Capitol, White House VC and monuments.

Great grocery store just down the street and the Metro is minutes away.

Closest park for our DC touring activities. Clean. At junction of I-95 and I-495 so some distant road noise. Daily educational session on traveling around DC on the Metro, suggestions for restaurants, other hints. Nice. The Metro bus does stop at the campground and after a 20 minute ride, does stop at the College Park Metro stop. Be aware though that waiting for the next bus or next train will make your trip into town longer. We averaged 1.5 hours each way. Still convenience overrode the length of time. Office staff very helpful and plenty of staff to handle the volume of campers there. We camped at Cherry Hill Park in a Motorhome.

Our first stay here and we loved it. We were given a premium site but had requested a standard. Due to our request to be near the pool, we were given the premium site. We were happy with the upgrade because of location, site size and short walk to the pools. Went in the pool everyday which was nice after a long day walking around DC. We did not use the metro at all but decided to drive to DC and park for free. It was 30 minutes if we were not traveling during rush hour. The store was great, huge RV section. The campground had a lot to offer and we were glad we stayed here. Will stay again at some point. We camped at Cherry Hill Park in a Travel Trailer.

The folks here have pretty much figured everything out. It's a busy busy park and well organized. The roads are paved and the sites gravel and level. It's a big park with lots of sections - and plenty of clean bathhouses. Big laundry facilities. Large pool. Even a nice store - stocked with both food items and RV parts and accessories. They have you covered.

Good cell coverage and dozens of WiFi access points - but somehow the Wifi seems to drop every 15 to 20 mins or so - and then come right back within a couple of mins. Why is it so many RV parks exhibit this behavior?? We're using a combination of Verizon Aircards and their Wifi.

The bus comes into the park and picks up folks and takes them to the Metro station. Or you can drive to the metro station 4 miles away. But be aware that parking at the metro station is a flat $5.50.

It is crowded, and two or three interstates run all around the outside boundaries of the park - so there's road noise all the time. But its not as much of a bother as you'd expect.

It's no "Anchor Down RV Park" (see Anchor Down in Dandridge, TN) but it's pretty good and very convenient. There is even a Starbucks, Home Depot, Shoppers Grocery Store and Best Buy within a mile or so of the park. Very handy.

We would, and no doubt will, stay here again. We camped at Cherry Hill Park in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Take the metro - go into town. See the sites and enjoy the city. Oh, and there is an Ikea Store very close by, too.

Located close for transportation into D.C. Very clean and well run. They are very friendly and have a seminar that tells you about tours, places to eat and how to use the metro. We recommend this highly and will go back. We camped at Cherry Hill Park in a Fifth Wheel.
