Washington DC on a budget

Hello, I was hoping that someone knows an RV park for a 40' MH close to a Washington DC metro at a price in the $40 or less per day. I have seen the KOA and Cherry Hill ads but 58/ day hurts the budget. Thanks for your help

I think you might be able to trade a vote on Tuesday for a parking spot!

You might consider the Green Belt National Park - If you dry camp and have a vehicle to get to the Metro. I was amazed to find such a nice national park within 20 miles or so of downtown DC.

Even tho Cherry Hill may be a bit pricey for you, you may want to reconsider. The city bus stop is there and the tour bus is there. We found that to be very convenient when we stayed last year. They also have a nice orientation meeting each afternoon for new arrivals. At this meeting they cover the buses, tours, recommendations, answer specific questions on DC and so forth.

We stayed at Prince William Travel Trailer Village back in 97 and found it to be very nice for the money. We drove into DC early on the weekend and found a parking place near the Smithsonian and walked every where we wanted to go. I understand you can park at a Metro station South of DC and ride the Metro in also.

Keep in mind that Cherry Hill also includes sewers and sufficent electrical amperage versus Prince William plus doorstep transportation. Sometimes the extra goodies offset the other things. Prince William also used to have a lenght restriction

DC on a small budget.

I too am/was looking for an inexpensive site for DC. I liked the cost and location of the Greenbelt but I was not sure about the no hookups. I found that Thousand Trails has a special of $499 per year for the whole southeast from Va south. You can stay up to 14 days at any one park. I have selected two parks in the DC / Williamsburg area which will give me four weeks. If I did not use it anywhere else during the year (which I will) that would bring my cost down to less than $18 a day. There are a lot of associated parks you can also get discounts at. I am planning on using these for the entire summer of 2011 in DC and that will me some time to visit some of the TT parks in Maine and all points between. I did pay extra for the ability to visit parks in the Northeast. Just read carefully so you understand what you get each year and what possible fees some parks may charge for longer stays. Since you can only stay 14 days and need 7 days away, I plan on using the Greenbelt park between the TT parks.
