Cherry Hill Park Campground

The location close to Washington DC is great with public transportation (bus) coming right to the campground. I had to go into DC 5 days of our stay for a conference so the bus connection to the subway station was great! You can ( and should) buy the transportation pass at the camp office. Just more convenient and then if you get the Smartcard you can load money to the card on the bus. There are also other tour buses that I believe depart from the campground. Our dogs appreciate the dog park. My family used the laundry, pool, and other facilities. Bath house was clean and had plenty of room in the shower areas. Our site could have used more shade in the sun most of the day, but other sites were more shaded. Level gravel site.

This campground is large and clean. There are two pools, playground, and putt putt golf. There is a store near by fir groceries. They have a bus station in the campground. The laundry room could use more ventilation. It was hot and muggy in there during the summer. I would stay here again.

You actually kind a feel like your at a Disney resort. There's transportation, outdoor movies, a small but cool water park and restaurants. Very close to DC, I highly recommend it. They even let us stay after check out so we could tour dc... How cool is that? Super cool!!!

Nice location, drive to the metro takes about 10 minutes or you can bus there if you wish. Quiet, nice clean showers, close to grocery and restaurants. Try the Sierra Grill nearby for a great meal. Buy your train pass at the camp office. Very helpful staff, good camp store.

Judging from the amount of RVs, this location is primarily for those folks but I thought I'd write a review from my perspective as a car camper. The campground is quite large and has a lot of amenities.

Pros:
- Bus service to DC Metro station (this was the main reason I chose this location. Never had to drive my car into DC once)

- Bath house was maintained well. It wasn't always super clean (typically water all over the floor most of the time), but I did see a crew headed in to clean on a regular basis.

- I liked that we had access to a well stocked camp store, two large swimming pools, a cafe, walking trails, hot tub, and the WiFi signal was typically pretty strong even at the tent site location.

- Lots of stores/restaurants within a short driving distance from the campground.

- Tent specific location was kept away from the RVs and was well shaded. The trees actually helped keep some of the rain away.

Cons:
- As others have noted, there are major roads all around the campground. From my tent location, it kind of created a white noise effect but I did eventually buy earplugs to help drown out the noise. I'm not sure if this noise is an issue if you're staying in an RV, but if you're in a tent, just be ready for it.

- In the designated tent location, the majority of the locations are on a slope. Not very steep, but you'll want to put up your tent accordingly.

- This isn't specific to the actual campground, but there are photo-enforced / speed traps on just about every road around the campground. You've got to be on constant alert for them.

We stayed in one of the cabins, very comfortable. We enjoyed the two pool areas and the family movie nights. The food at the café was great. Well priced and solid portions. The staff was very helpful. A great alternative to a hotel in this area, the Metro bus comes to the park, so you can get around the entire metro area from the campground, very easy.

Our family stayed at this camp in 2012 over the 4th of July week. The park was clean and full of amenities. The camp sites for tents were shady and covered in mulch. The perfect place to stay for a DC trip. We toured the city all day and then came to home base for food a swim and a relaxing night sleep.

Room Tip: There were some cute yurt style cabins in the woods that we would have liked to try.
