    Campground Review: Cherry Hill Park near Washington D.C.

    Cherry Hill Park is a premium camping option for visitors to Washington D.C. Our family has gone every year for four years. So what brings us back to Cherry Hill again and again? Not only does it offer an amazing campground experience, it’s also in an excellent location. Cherry Hill is located just outside of our nation’s capital. A major bonus is its proximity to the Metro line, meaning you can get downtown easily without having to drive. Plus, it’s open year-round…and it’s not even in the South.

    Washington D.C. is a popular tourist destination for good reason. Visitors can explore our nation’s history here like no place else. It’s where history is literally being made each day. Plus, it’s a truly lovely city, offering scenery and culture. Our boys are at the perfect age because they can soak this up–and they earnestly want to experience it all.

    Campground Details: Cherry Hill Park

    Cherry Hill is not actually located in Washington D.C. Instead, you’ll find it in the suburban town of College Park, Maryland. A trip to the National Mall (the area of D.C. stretching from the Lincoln Memorial to the U.S. Capitol Building) will take approximately 30 minutes, whether you drive or take the Metro on lightly trafficked times. Using public transportation is truly convenient and saves you the hassle of parking.

    Cherry Hill puts a unique spin on urban camping. Many urban campgrounds offer what is essentially a parking lot near a major attraction (such as the San Francisco RV Resort or Liberty Harbor, near NYC). While these parks meet their mission of providing a good basecamp for your urban adventures, Cherry Hill is truly a resort campground, combining location and amenities in a way you don’t usually see. This is a park we might visit even if Washington D.C. weren’t just down the road.

    Cherry Hill is considered a private resort-style RV park. One of the things that sets this campground apart is the fact that it has been owned by the same family for five generations. They truly take pride in running this place, as they have since 1980. They’ve created a landmark campground that reminds us of places like Normandy Farms or the Lake George RV Resort.

    Campsite Details: Cherry Hill Park

    The first thing you should know is that Cherry Park is HUGE. But, it really doesn’t feel overwhelming, partially because it’s divided into two sections that feel like two separate campgrounds. One area is a big, bustling RV park with nice sites and decent shade, while the other section feels quieter and has roomier sites. Each traveler has to decide which vibe they prefer.

    Cherry Hill’s website does a great job of showing the different types of RV sites. Be sure to check it out before booking. The sites near the front entrance are especially convenient and located near the amenities; however, these might be a little too hectic if you’re hoping to relax at your site.

    Further out and to the right, you’ll find more scenic, private campsites. These are perfect if you’re seeking some relaxation. You’ll be pretty far away from the amenities, however. Don’t hesitate to call and talk through your options.

    Cherry Hill definitely is not a rural retreat, as it is right off of the interstate (I-95). Some sites are closer to the highway than others. If noise is an issue for you, ask for a site away from it.

    If you aren’t hauling a trailer or driving a motorhome, you’ll find tons of other options at Cherry Hill. Glamping pods, cottages, cabins, and even a yurt are available.

    We appreciated that many are stocked more like a hotel room, with linens and towels included. Some cabins even have dishwashers!

    Due to the park’s popularity, it does fill up during the peak season and during the D.C. Cherry Blossom Festival. During the shoulder season, you’ll have a better chance of snagging a spot with much less notice. All sites are full hookup–and the water spigot is even heated during those winter months! Expect to pay $60 for tent sites and between $77-98 for RV sites. Cabins, cottages, and etc. run between $100-300 a night. Cherry Hill is a Good Sam park, so be sure to use your discount.

    Campground Amenities: Cherry Hill Park

    Cherry Hill truly is a resort, no questions asked. Though we’ve never been there when the pools were opened, there are two huge pools. We have, however, used the hot tub and sauna, and let us tell you, they were greatly appreciated during our chilly visits. Kids will especially love the new splash park and the two playgrounds.

    Tons of kid-friendly activities are offered, as well. From fishing to tractor rides to gem mining and more–you’ll have to drag the children from the campground to see the sights in D.C.! If you’d like a sightseeing tour, Cherry Hill can even arrange that for you.

    The clubhouse is truly spectacular. It has great gathering spaces for groups. You will find a fireplace, board games, and more. There’s a game room and a cafe onsite. Other amenities include a secure front entrance, two dog runs, propane delivery, golf cart rentals…the list goes on and on!

    Local Area: Cherry Hill RV Park

    Washington D.C. is an exceptionally cool city. The obvious must-dos include the National Mall (where the Washington Monument and other major memorials are found) and the Smithsonian Museums. You could easily spend a week just touring these spots. We recommend using booking a Big Bus Tour (with the hop-on-hop-off option) for an easy way to navigate all of the sites.

    One important tip: There are many ticketed events in D.C. You can’t just arrive at the Washington Monument and expect to get inside. Be sure to look online to find out the procedures for all of the sites you hope to hit. The good thing is that many of these are free–the tickets just help with crowd control. Popular ticketed sites include the National Museum of African American History, Ford’s Theatre, the House of Representatives, the Supreme Court, and much more. One surprisingly entertaining hit for our family was the Postal Museum. Visit it, and then head next door to the famed Shake Shack for off-the-hook burgers!

    Washington D.C. is a delightful, informative, and interesting spot for families to visit, and a stay at Cherry Hill is truly the cherry on top of a visit this awesome city!

    See you at the campground,

I am in love with trains and railroad history so this was a total blast for me. One thing to note, if you come in the fall/winter, it can get very cold, so bring firewood to run the potbelly stove and know how to use it first! We had such an amazing time and can’t wait to come back!!” – Katie

    Cherry Hill Park – RV Campground – College Park, Maryland

    Dubbed as the “closest RV park to Washington DC”, this true resort style RV park is located less than 20 miles outside of our nation’s capital. “Chocked full of amenities” doesn’t begin to scratch the surface of all that Cherry Hill Park offers its patrons. The front office and store offers a good collection of Washington DC souvenirs and the well-stocked store provides a plethora of grocery and camping items. Staff at the front office are incredibly helpful at guiding folks around the area and the on-site bus depot and ability to buy a SmartTrip Card makes navigating DC a breeze. Washington DC can feel a bit daunting to visit, but the website offers a lot of great information about getting around the area. Staff is always willing to help out travelers looking for advice about places to visit, things to do and tours to take including offering daily sightseeing sessions. Some tours even depart from the on-site bus depot.

    This park is expansive. Online guides help campers locate their perfect campsite based on specific needs or amenities. Don’t have an RV or camper but still want to try something other than a hotel while visiting the area? Cherry Hill Park offers all types of accommodations to meet just about every need. They offer full hook-up campsites (pull through, back-in, premium sites, basic sites), tree-lined sites, tent sites, premium log cabins, glamping pods, yurts and cottages (rental houses).

    As for those amenities, the list is extensive and the ability to charge “to your site” makes your stay feel more like a hotel than an RV park. Cherry Hill Park offers two pools, one of which offers a beach walk-in and fountain. The Star Café offers breakfast, lunch and dinner options that can be enjoyed either in their quaint dining room, by take-out or even delivered to your door. Golf carts can be rented on site or reserved in advance on-line. After a long day exploring the city, the hot tub and sauna are a welcome reprieve for sore and tired muscles. Kids will love the splash park and large playgrounds and the kid in all of us can’t wait for an exciting game of 18-hole mini golf. Four-legged patrons can tire themselves out at the dog park and dog run and there are even dog walking services available.

    But wait, there is still more. Summer days are filled with tractor rides through the park on a 1952 Farmall and summer nights are enjoyed under the stars watching a movie on a big screen. Try your hand at gem mining or even fishing in a well-stocked pond for bluegill, catfish and large-mouth bass. The list continues with laundry facilities, a lounge room, arcade game room, propane delivery, bathhouses, basketball court, outdoor fitness area, indoor exercise room, walking trails, access to off-road cycling and walking trails, a gaga pit (think dodgeball), ping pong, cornhole and all the countless memories that this park will provide you and your loved ones.

    Cherry Hill Park is a vacation all by itself. Add in nearby and easily accessible Washington DC and now you have an unforgettable vacation that your family will be talking about for years and years to come.
