We've stayed here previously, about 5 or so years ago. There really are no other options that come close to Cherry Hill. Close to DC, with options from the park to shuttle in from the park. We drove into the train station without problems. Our site had shade morning and evenings before the sun went down. Navigating the park is easy enough. One of the largest on site stores I've seen. Golf carts are available if needed. We didn't really use any of the park amenities as we were in DC early in the day until late. Restrooms and showers were clean. We'll be back. We camped at Cherry Hill Park in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

This is a large park, I often read about people complaining about how large parks are or kids, etc. Go to the website, Look at the park map. But this is the best option around.

The park was big rig friendly and clean. We had trouble with the WIFI but that was eventually corrected. If you want to visit DC this is a very good place to stay. Easy access using the Metro. We camped at Cherry Hill Park in a Motorhome.

Check in was awesome. We were given lots of information and maps. However that is where the awesome stopped. The sites are very close. The streets are very narrow and can be difficult to navigate when everyone is home since the only place to park your car or truck is in front of your rig. The bath house was adequate. Every morning the showers had so much mud in them it was as if they had not been cleaned in quite awhile, but they are closed at certain times so they must clean them once a day.. Maybe they should be cleaned more often. They changed the gate code one day and when we came back from the Metro we did not know that and when we buzzed for help we were told "I'll buzz you through this one time but you have to come to the office for the code". I don't know how someone is to know the code has been changed. Also the cable never worked and the wifi is sketchy at best. All in all we were very disappointed in this park for the amount of money they charge. The redeeming factor is that the Metro is very close. However, I doubt we would stay here again. We camped at Cherry Hill Park in a Motorhome.

Second time we have stayed at this park to visit the D.C. mall. Easy access to the D.C. Metro system which gets you into and out of town safely and quickly. This is a large park, but, they did not fill it up for the 4th of July. Camp WiFi works well. Verizon and ATT phone and data signals are strong. Nice snack bar with good selection of food. We camped at Cherry Hill Park in a Travel Trailer.

Stayed here to visit D.C. but the park was sadly lacking. Upon arrival, young lady at desk had a serious "who cares" attitude. Gave us minimal information, wrong gate code. On the good side, park had a bus stop to go to Metro station. However, at first staff didn't mention that you could drive there in 10 min. and park for less than the cost of 2 riding the bus. All sites were jammed together and too many sites on property. Some sites were far too small for the units parked there. So small in fact that most had to park vehicles in the street within inches of your unit. During our stay it rained a few times but the drainage was horrible, our site seemed to be the collection point. We had to request mulch for our parking area since the mud was several inches deep. Vehicles had to be moved in order to allow other campers to park their rigs. Unstable power supply, frequent cable outages were bothersome. Fire pit was too close to our unit to use safely. Picnic table had to be moved in order to get out of trailer door, unusable. Amenities were superb. Bus station, nice café, great laundry (very overpriced though), pool, playground, ballroom, RV equipment store was really nice. But, amenities don't make the park. This park advertised itself as a wonderful place. It was not, except for those things mentioned. We are researching other parks in the D.C. area for next time, and will only stay at Cherry Hill as a last resort. We camped at Cherry Hill Park in a Travel Trailer.

Tips for other Campers:

Great access to Washington, DC. Costco, grocery stores, home depot and many other shopping opportunities in general area.

Parking at the Metro garage is free on weekends and federal holidays.

The cable was not satisfactory. Channels (TBS, NBC, TNT, AMC) would not come in. The WiFi only works at some times of the day. The bathrooms were kind of dirty and very muggy with little air flow. The cafe in the park was very good, much better than expected. Park is very quiet and transportation was good. We camped at Cherry Hill Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Tips for other Campers:

Bus and Metro were very convient but took about an hour if going to national mall

The park is old, reasonably well kept, and offers a lot of amenities (See the park's website). However, in our opinion it is not especially well suited for big rigs. We found the sites to be difficult, that is to say, not level with bizarrely placed utilities (although stable once you're able to hook up), and some are not particularly well located for backing in. We've stayed at Cherry Hill several times and have yet to be assigned a level site. Site 502 is decidedly not level. You need to park somewhat forward on site 502 in order to connect to shore power.

Road noise can be a problem depending on where in the park you are located.

The wifi is sometimes good, sometimes not so good. Cable channels are a mix of analog and digital. Not much available in the analog column, but a fairly extensive list in the digital column.

This park is probably the nicest park in the area - very convenient to D.C. and surrounding MD sites of interest.

When we're visiting the D.C. area, we typically stay at Cherry Hill and, unless something better comes along, we'll undoubtedly continue to use Cherry Hill as our base. We camped at Cherry Hill Park in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

There is a cafe/grill on park property that is reputed to be very good. At check-in the park gives you a 20% discount coupon to be used on your first visit to the cafe.

This place is a 10. There really isn't anything that is missing...a great extremely well stocked camp store, 2 pools, a modestly priced restaurant, helpful and plentiful staff, and transportation via train and tour bus from the campground to all over Washington DC. And, it's the closest campground to DC. We camped at Cherry Hill Park in a Motorhome.

This park is very convenient if your visiting DC. They have a daily travel talk that gives you information about how, when and where to go in DC. The metro bus picks you up right at the park and it takes you to the train station. The park is very large with lot of amenities including a reasonably priced café, well stocked store and RV parts. Lots of things for kids to do and everything was well contained so if you don't have kids it's not an issue. I can't imagine staying anywhere else for visiting DC. Our site did have some road noise, but it was not an issue for us. We camped at Cherry Hill Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Tips for other Campers:

Don't miss the travel talk if you have never visited DC. It was at 4 PM every day when we were there, but not sure if it's always at that time. Instead of the hop on-hop off bus, you can take the circulator for only $1 and it goes to all the same places.

This was the perfect place to stay while visiting Washington, DC. The park is the last stop on the metro bus line that takes you to and from the metro rail station. So you don't have to get in your car at all unless you want to drive to a nearby restaurant or store. Every afternoon at 4:00 they have an information session on how to get to and around Washington, DC, via the metro system which is very helpful. We stayed in a site directly across from the pool, restrooms/showers, and the café (which is open from either 7:00 or 8:00 in the morning until 8:00 at night). This is especially nice after a long day touring DC. You can even call and place an order to go. I highly recommend this park. We camped at Cherry Hill Park in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Beware: the Beltway is I-495 which encircles Washington. It has to be the most congested highway in the country as there is a massive amount of traffic 24/7. You can see Gettysburg Military Park easily on a day trip from here which I recommend. Buy the audio guide that is produced by a historian, not the NPS one. It is excellent and makes the battle come to life.

Easy in/out of park as well as the sites. Fairly wide sites with grass in between, but not very long. We couldn't fit in the assigned spot, but there were plenty of other spots to choose from. Nice store with souvenirs as well as necessities. Large dog park, but the grass is so tall we were afraid of ticks. Park is undergoing construction, so noisy trucks from early in a.m. and no cable, but the over-air channels come in very clear. Also some road noise from the nearby freeway. Wi-Fi works great. Park has bus stop for Metro bus, and is close to Metro station. Close to grocery store. Sight-seeing orientation provided every day, as well as Metro instructions. Café on site, and pool area looks beautiful. Tons of employees to answer all your questions. We camped at Cherry Hill Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Tips for other Campers:

Parking at nearby College Park Metro station is $5.10. We found that more convenient than taking bus from park to station. Recommend Old Town Trolley Tours for DC tour. Do laundry before this park-$2.25 for wash.

We loved Cherry Hill Park. Beautiful park and well maintained. Lots of amenities, including a nice big store, pool, cafe, hot tub, and very nice laundry facilities. They are very dog friendly with lots of dog areas for your pups. Only negative thing I could point out is if you're in a large RV the spots are a little on the tight side. We camped at Cherry Hill Park in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

There is so much to do in Washington DC and you can plan everything right from this RV park. We loved that the Metrobus picks you up right at the park and returns you. You can purchase tour tickets right from the RV park.

I've never given a rating of 10 before, but this CG is about as perfect as it gets. Full-service; knowledgeable and helpful staff; daily DC orientation; catch bus for tours and Metro right in the CG; sites are level, spacious and semi-private. Some road noise, but not bad. Strong AT&T and Verizon. Cable was being worked on while we were there, but OTA signals were strong. We camped at Cherry Hill Park in a Fifth Wheel.

If you are visiting the Washington and Baltimore area - this is a perfect place to set as your base. They provide bus service to the local Metro station. From there you can travel thru out the Washington metro area (Md and Va included). The staff is super helpful in directions and sightseeing info. You could stay here for a week or longer and not use a car much at all. The on-site restaurant has great food and reasonable prices. The cable and Wi-Fi are great. Caution on the water though. It has a fairly high pressure so you may need a regulator. The entire resort is hilly and it adds a nice charm to it. Great for walking exercises. The management is in the midst of some really nice upgrades and expansions. The ONLY complaint that we have is that this is the most expensive place we have stayed at (except for Disney Ft Wilderness). It is really nice - but a bit overpriced. We camped at Cherry Hill Park in a Motorhome.
