Feedback from anyone who has stayed at the Cherry Hill park and can offer insight on their facilities would be greatly appreciated. Also, any info on taking the Metro into DC tourist areas would be very helpfull.

Agree with K-Star. Little pricy but worth it.
You can buy bus and train tickets in the office, they will also give you a schedule on which bus to and from and also which trains.
They even offer dog walking service. Never heard of this before. We are talking location with this park. Nice store, friendly, ect.
If we went back to Washington DC, would not even consider some where else. Have a good time!

Thanks E Z Livin,

We are heading up the end of this month. Where in SC are you living. Your screen name indicates that you have a firm grasp on the SC way of life.

Located in Florence. About 80 miles inland from coast. Not bad location from Mountains or Coast but not only that it is home.
Not many places in downtown DC to have lunch. They are hid away in the office buildings.

Just noticed where you are located. My son is in Mt. Pleasant. Nice area but lots of traffic.

Hi there, just noticed you request. I agree with other fellers. Campground is fine and it certainly is easy and convienent for going down town DC. I've seen that many RVers use it when visiting DC.

Novi,

Thanks for the feedback.

Hello E Z Livin,

As you can see from my screen name I am a native born Charlestonian. I remember when the only time we went to Mt. P was because it was on the way to the beaches. Then even the beaches where dead except from May to Labor Day. You are right on about the traffic, but now days it's not just Mt. P, but the whole lowcontry. Not sure where all the people are coming from and most importantly where they are working to afford the price of our homes these day. One of the homes I lived in as a kid just sold for +2mil. Fifty years ago it would not have brought 20K and that would have been a lot for a house south of Broad. Heck, thinking back I remember when the reason most people went to Florence was to get new teeth at Sextons Dental Lab. Is it still there?

Geechee, yes Sextons is still here. I notice the other day passing that they finally built a nice new big building. Wonder how many extractions that took? Been there for years.
Land in Low Country is out of site. My son (33 years old) just turned down over 700K for his new house before it was finished. Bought the lot for 107K and I thought he was crazy, three months later bought one two doors down for $180 to build a spec home on and again I thought he was crazy. Well, they are up to $260 now less than a year later. He has his own construction business but mostly commercial construction.
As his Dad, I can tell you at my age I can not afford (or even come close) to what he lives in. I guess the college is doing its thing as he is way to tight to go into much debt.
Charleston is nice, but if I sold my house here (and it is nice), I could not get a shack there.

Cherry Hill is a great campground, bus leaves right from there or you can drive 5 minutes to the metro.

Again thanks for the info. We spent last week at Cherry Hill and was very pleased with our stay. It is a little pricey and the sites are very close together, but I would recommend staying there if you want to visit DC. The access to the bus and Metro service is first class.
