We are just back from Cherry Hill RV campgrounds in College Park, MD. The campground is the closest and very convenient to DC for all the activities you can do there for free. CH is currently doing some upgrading and I can't wait to go back next year to see the changes.
We used the bus/metro system to get into DC but discovered that it was much more convenient using our own vehicle and parking at the metro parking garage for $5.10 a day then waiting for a bus to take you back to CH after a long, hot day. It is approx. $2.00 per person per each way so it pays to park. I can finally say that I have figured out the DC metro system after 12 years of having one or two of my children living down there. Very simple and the walks from the stations to all that DC has to offer is not that bad - just be sure to wear your sneakers.
I only had one experience using the bathhouse facilities and I was not too pleased to find that there was not any toilet paper :( Also it could have used a good cleaning. When we have been at other campgrounds that has never been the case.
The pool area is good but I don't know why they had a blue tarp under the seats at one of the pools - it looked nasty and I was not going near it.
CH is the type of campground that people are out all day and come back to cool off after seeing the sights. I thought it was quiet even though the campsites are very tight - you basically share a picnic area with next RV. So much for family time.
I certainly would go back and plan on it but now I know what the deal is!
