Cherry Hill Park is located in College Park, Maryland.  They bill themselves as being the closest RV park to Washington, DC.  From I-95 south, take exit 29B(Calverton).  This will put you on SR212.  Go about 1.2 mile to Cherry Hill Road and make a left turn.  Go about 1.1 mile to the campground on the right.  From the Beltway, I-495/I-95, take exit 25 to US 1/Baltimore Ave.  Turn left and go about .5 mile to Cherry Hill Road.  Turn right and go about 1 mile to the campground on the left.

This is a very large campgound with 350 full hookup RV sites with 30/50 amp electricity.  The interior roads are paved but the RV sites are gravel.  All but 33 of the sites are backins.  Almost all of the pull thrus are side-by-side hook ups and those sites are fairly narrow in width.  There is a picnic table and a BBQ at each site. In addition to the RV sites, there are 50 tent sites and 12 rental units.

This is a very nice campground with a lot of nice amenities.  It is nicely landscaped and well maintained.  We were disappointed with the side-by-side hookup that we had and the fact that our site was very narrow.  A lot of the sites aren't long enough to adequately park your tow vehicle and therefore gives a crowded feeling when the campground is full.  However, the positives out weigh the few negatives in our opinion.  This is the only campground that I have seen that will give you a refund if you decide to leave early.  If you are planning a trip to Washington, DC, this is the place to be.
