My wife and I want to visit DC in March and April. Can anyone recommend a campground a short distance from a Washington Metro Stop. We would like to ride the train into DC and not have to drive very far.
Any help will be appreciated. Thanks

Do not remember the name, but you can look on-line. We stayed at a park that had a Van take people downtown in the AM and pick them up either in the afternoon or PM, no charge!

Try Cherry Hill RV Park.

City bus stop at the park takes you to a Metro Stop. Here is their website.

I understand there is some federal land on Pennsylvania Ave that has a white house and a rose garden. Might be a part of BLM.

Cherry Hill is the one suggested the most suggested.

Also, Pohick Bay is a short drive from the Franconia-Springfield Metro stop.

This is another vote for Cherry Hill CG. They're not perfect, but the total package they offer can't be beat. The bus comes to the CG and will take yo to the train station.

Here is a map of the RV parks closest to DC.

The only one we have used is Cherry Hill, and were satistified with it. For touring DC without having to drive in DC traffic it is probably the best.

Greenbelt National Park is a one mile walk from the metro at College Park. $16 a night $8 with old age pass. Beautiful quite park in the woods you will not be able to tell you are surrounded by a big city. Big rigs OK Reservations available Memorial day to Labor Day. First come first serve the rest of the year.
