Here’s some info for all my RV Buddies out there who want to know more about Cherry Hill RV Park in College Park, MD.
After spending 6 days here, I highly recommend it. The price may be a bit, well ….. pricey, but it’s a comfortable and convenient home base from which to launch an assault on the tourist heaven that is Our Nation’s Capital.
I paid $55 per night (tax included) for water, electric, cable, sewer, and wi-fi. Each site contains a fire ring and picnic table. Some pull-through sites are available.

Step 1: Take the #83 Cherry Hill bus to the College Park Metro Station. Buses leave from the campground’s sheltered Bus Depot every ½ hour. The ride takes about 20 minutes over 6 stops.
Step 2: Catch the Green Line at the metro station.
Travel 9 subway stops until the National Archives station. This takes another 20 minutes or so.
Transfer to any of the other lines anytime to go anywhere.
Note: The bus from the campground also stops at a shopping center not far from the RV park that contains a Home Depot and supermarket.
A fully-supplied camp store with groceries, souvenirs, firewood, and just about anything else you need. The camping supply part of the store is relatively small compared to, say, Camping World but rivals it in inventory.
An on-site RV maintenance truck. I almost wish something was broken so I could take advantage.
On-site propane service. Sign up the day before and get propane fill-ups while you are off seeing the sights.
Pet-sitting and dog-walking services.
Tourist information. The staff are knowledgeable tour guides. Information sessions are held every afternoon at 4 PM. Metro passes are sold in the office.
SPOTLESS bathrooms and showers. I don’t think I have ever seen such meticulously-kept bathhouses.
Plentiful real estate in which to romp with your dog.
1) The traffic noise from nearby I-95 is constant. But I was able to tune it out and I’ve got GREAT hearing. The abundance of trees muffles the noise somewhat.
3) The sites are close together.
2) The cable reception isn’t that great for the upper channels. When I watched the World Series, I actually switched to antenna for a better picture.
I’m not sure a better options exists from which RVers can explore the DC area.
