Visiting Washington DC

Plan on visiting Wash DC later this year and looking for the best campground to stay nearby. Looking for tours and shuttles available from the campground. Thanks in advance.

Welcome to the forum! You can use our search function and search on the topic but you'll find that Cherry Hill RV Resort seems to be by far the most popular choice. We stayed there last spring and everything about it... with the predictible exceptions of price and the size of the sites... is top notch.

The Metro runs right inside the park and will take you anywhere you want to go... and you won't want to drive anywhere. The park hosts a little seminar each evening explaining how to use the Metro. It's a little intimidating for rookies at first but really a piece of cake.

It's a remarkable place to visit and we didn't think a week was near enough. It's kind of a shame because the park has so much to offer but you always want to be in DC seeing the sights.

Have fun.

I'll second Cherry Hill for conveniences, etc. but if you dry camp & do national parks and have transportation consider the Green Belt National Park. You can't believe how remote it feels and it is within 12 or so miles of the capitol and museums, monuments.

This is another vote for Cherry Hill. Not only does the metro buses go past the park, but tour buses can also be used from the park. Add to that, though, the fact that you can get right back on the expressway and go one exit to catch the train/subway system. Huge parking lot.

This is a dedicated exit designed just for the train/subway. It will take you everywhere.
