Cherry Hill Park

Just returned from a long weekend at this campground in College Park, Maryland, just off the beltway north of Wash. DC. I found it to be a first class operation.

The entire staff was friendly, professional, and went out of their way to help. The campground itself and rest room/showers were exceptionallyneat and clean. And, aside from the constant drone of the beltway in the background, it was very quiet.

It was a bit pricey at $47 per night for a 3-way w/cable, but with the amenities-two pools, hot tub, exercise room with high end equipment, internet cafe (free), Wi-Fi (30 min.free per day, after that an hourly charge), outdoor theater, restaurant, and conference center. They also had one of the better RV/camping supply stores I've seen to date. They offer 10% discounts on site rentals for AAA, some RV clubs, military, police, etc.

We chose it primarily for it's proximity to DC. The Metro buses stop right at the park several times daily, and will take you to the Metro subway where you can connect to anywhere in the city and surrounding areas. We drove downtown the first day and spent most of the time looking for parking spaces. I believe it to be more cost effective and certainly less time consuming to use the Metro systems.

Overall, it was a good experience. We're already planning our next trip over Thanksgiving. The only disappointment - there wasn't a single other Airstream in the entire park.

Same experiences

It's nice to see that someone else has had a similar experience as I..
Stayed there back several years ago because of a convention that we attended being held in Baltimore, and found it to be an excellent excuse to use the Airstream in place of the norm..(Kind word for Hotel)
A very good friend of mine once said something to this effect about staying in her own Airstream, rather than use a hotel, "I'd rather make my own DNA deposit." Excellent point...
BTW, the price you paid isn't bad at all~ Did you stay at the premier site located just across from the tram station??
Not only is the on-site store one of the better ones but, the RV service on-site (for those needing it) is above par. I had a water failure and they send over one of the guys that works there..Fix'd the problem in abt 30 minutes. Turned out to be a clogged filter..
ciao
