After all these glowing recommedatios for Cherry Hill Park in MD and then we decided that will be the place we go. Today I called them to make a reservation for September and they tell me that can't assign a spot for us until we get there!!WHAT???? I can request a spot near this place or that place or whatever but I will get what they have when I check in. Soooo....I went to the web site to take a look at the park map. How in the heck can you request ANY spot when one can barely see the map? How do I know that they won't put us in some god-fosaken site? I'm confused. We just made great reservations for James Island in SC without this sort of problem. Anybody got any suggestions? Maybe you've been there and can tell me what to avoid.

Never had a problem with ANY of their sites. They do their best to accomadate you. We asked to be by the playground last time there... We were placed right next to it, I couldn't have requested a better site! It will be OK. I haven't seen a "crappy" site there

From what I could tell, there are no premium sites. When we were there we were told to try to get a site near the office, which we did, but there was more traffic noise from freeway, and rv's going in and out. I think the quietest is the far end of park away from office. Take what they give you, it won't make much difference. You can't escape the freeway noise. You will still have a great time, we did.

Not far from Cherry Hill is a Federal park (Greenbelt) on US193 near the intersection of I495(DC Beltway and BW Parkway. With or without a Golden Age Pass it is also inexpensive. It does have potable water and a dump station. I think it has electric. 2-3 miles to DC Subway. NPS website has map and more info. I'm pretty sure you can reserve a spot at least 6 months ahead.
