Cherry Hill Park Campground
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 8 August 2014

My family and I stayed at Cherry Hill Park for 3 nights while visiting the capitol and the Smithsonian museums. The tent site we had was very small, was strewn with half-rotten leaves from last fall (we stayed in August!), it was very uneven, it had no grass, rather gravel, sticks and leaves. Worst of all it was about 150 feet from the freeway - the I95! Obviously, the road noise was very loud and unabated throughout the night, making sleep very difficult. About the only positives were the nice pool and clean washrooms. While it is one of the only choices that is accessible by MetroBus, I would recommend staying a little farther out of town and simply parking at a MetroRail station for each day you plan to spend downtown. Not worth $50+ a night. The road noise simply ruins the campground.

We stayed here for a week, and it was a great spot to access DC. The park is nice with larger sites, and good spacing between. There are a lot of sites to choose from, and overall the park staff is great in assisting you in finding the right site. There is a bus service to the local subway system, but we oped to drive to the station, much faster, but you do have to pay for parking when you get to the station, but worth the time savings. We would stay here again if ever in the DC area.

If you want to visit DC - this is the best campground to stay!!
The service you receive is great. They even organize metro tickets for you to visit DC.
Very very clean campground. Nice sides, enough room.
Will take you 1 hour from here to be in center of DC on the National Mall via bus and Metro/subway.
I have seen 15 campgrounds both East and West coast, this is the best of them all.

This has to be the best campground we've ever stayed at! We planned to visit Washington DC with our family. We stumbled upon this campground via the Internet having no clue that this would turn out to be such an amazing experience for our family. The key words to this campground are: organized, professional & knowledgeable staff, clean, kid friendly, convenient & modern (on site restaurant and canteen, 2 pools; no parent supervision required for kids 14 and over as lifeguard on site which is great for parents& 1 spa, park with play structures, location of carts, wifi, outdoors movie theatre), upcoming renovations for 2015 which will add even more state of the art amenities.
ATTRACTIONS: If you are planning to visit Washington city, the best way is to drive to College Park parking lot (great advice from the staff!). It is FREE on Sunday's and $5.10 weekdays. From there you can hop on a Metro that will bring you directly to your destination. Personnel is there should you require assistance. It cost our family $32.00 both ways, which was well worth it! We arrived at the Archives exit. However, depending on where and what you plan on visiting, you will need to verify the metro route. If you are planning to visit the Pentagon, please don't make the same mistake that we did :(. You need to reserve this on line at least 2-3 weeks prior to your vacation. We wished we would have known this prior to taking a metro all the way to the Pentagon only to be disappointed re: not being able to be part of the daily tours. However the memorial tribute was well worth the trip to the Pentagon. The campground also offers bus tours for those who do not wish to overthink it nor wish to drive. There are also buses that leave directly from the campground. Enjoy your stay!

Outstanding camp ground close to Washington DC.
Employes are very helpful with information on how to get around
Buss transportation (Metro stop) right at the camp ground
Two swimming pools, great WIFI
Lots have good shading but are close (your fire pit is next to the neighbors dump connection)
Sites are well maintained and level
This park is located next to the beltway and you will hear traffic most of the time (ear plugs for night time sleeping) is recommended.

My Family and I stayed here for 4 nights and had a wonderful time while visiting our nation’s capital. We go camping several time a season because we love campaign and the outdoor. Neighbors are always friendly you see everyone outside cooking on the grill or fire pit and roasting marshmallow by the fire at night. What a great lifestyle! Not here. I think I was the only one with a fire each night. Then it finally downed on me that this is not a “staycation” type of place. Everyone staying here was there to visit DC and I can’t imagine a better campground to do so. With the subway station just down the street and the Bus station right in the campground you couldn’t ask for more.
The RV part section on the camp store almost rivals Camping World. If you need something to fix or update your camper they have everything from bolts and washers to toilets( and yes all the cool stuff too). The staff is very friendly and helpful and they are currently adding allot of new stuff to the campground. I was a little disappointed that something’s like the put-put were closed during this but it looks like it is going to be pretty impressive once they are done. I would definitely stay there again if I was going to visit DC.
