Episode Info: 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. Th...
