Cherry Hill has its ups & downs. The 'ups' -- very well-maintained; fine campsites; great amenities; and most importantly a quality base from which to explore Washington DC. The 'downs' are significant road noise -- it's nestled into a piece of land snug into the junction of I-95 & the Beltway -- and just an OK neighborhood outside the park. Price is more than a typical campground, but compared to the cost of staying in hotels in DC, it's not too bad a deal. We were there in the offseason, and unfortunately it was really cold the week we stayed, so we weren't really able to do much at the facility. Odds are you're probably going to want to spend most of your time away in DC anyway. Convenient enough to Metro stops on the green line; it's about 45 minutes from the campground to the Mall. I'd stay there again, though if you really want to make use of the campground, come in the summer! - Spiffe

We spent 5 nights here, going to Washington DC every day for tourist reasons. This is an incredible bargain as it is about 10 miles away from DC, and only about 2 miles to the Greenbelt Metro station. The first night we were there we were by ourselves at the end of the campground, the grass was about a foot high, and my wife said it felt creepy. The next day they mowed the grass and over the time we were there, more people came in to camp. There are no hookups, but we were fine in our self contained motor home. It rained a lot while we were there, when we left the dump station was flooded so we couldn't dump. We didn't look at the restrooms. - Russell G

Thick trees in serious need of trimming. Interior roads very tight, sites paved but many unlevel, and dry camping only. 1 shower stall for men in all of D loop, and that needed cleaning. Never saw the camphost, maintenance crew drove around but never saw them get out and do anything. Rain created muddy mess, garbage strewn about and not addressed. - rvrrat520

This is of course a NP campground. It is a little bit of heaven in a very large city. Like most NP campgrounds it is in need of a lot of repairs and updates, but if it were not a NP it probably won't even be here. I'm sure the property values in the area would make such a large section of land out of the range of most RV parks. In fact the only other RV park in the area charges $70 a night and that would have been way over our heads to stay at. There are trees everywhere and except for the faint noise of the busy highways on all sides you would think you were way out in the country. Those busy highways are what you have to take to get here but with patience and careful driving it wasn't as hard as I thought it would be. The roads inside the CG are a little rough and in need of repair. The sites could be a little larger and a little more level but we found one that would fit our 40' MH. There were picnic tables at every site but the fire rings were old and falling apart if they were even there at all. You are only 1 1/2 miles from the train station that takes you to downtown DC but we drove our car and after finding a hens teeth parking space we spent a wonderful day walking the DC Mall area. There were very few people the so it was easy to use the one shower in our loop but it would be difficult when it is busy. Most sites are back in but there are a few pull-through. The reservation system is fairly accurate in describing the size and levelness so if it says slightly unlevel you should believe them. Water was available close by and there is a dump station. The small visitors center was staffed by very helpful Park Service and volunteer people who directed us on ways to get around the city. Of course being in the city the cell and internet signal were very good. I would highly recommend this great CG for anyone with a desire to visit the Capital of the US. - rhianna

Travel from Long Island, and this is always our 1st stop. There is construction at the entrances to the post. Tight turn until at camp gate. Entrance to office parking lot to narrow, as evidenced by the tire marks on the curb. We come here for the commissary, the PX, and the class 6 store. The rate has again increased. No cable at site (connector is there) and no WIFI. Seems a lot (45) for what you get. Fort Belvoir (not far) has a new campground and charge $50/nite. They offer a lot more than Fort Meade. The rates must reflect the closeness to the DC area. Interior road has some big potholes. The pull thru's usually for MH and Toad. - Long Island Mac

Very nice park with lots of elbow room. We were in #24 which is on a corner. The nearest RV to us was at least 50 to 75 feet away. The park is clean and they make everyone adhere to the rules (no parking on grass, no junk around, etc) which makes for a pleasing appearance. There was no wifi out where we were, electric was stable, water pressure was fine, and Verizon signal was 4G with 1 and 2 bars (not real strong). There are paved roads and concrete pads with gravel patios. Each patio has a fire pit and picnic table. The commissary and exchange were very nice. Here's our 2 complaints: First are the gates. The gates at the entrance and exit of the park are a pain. If you're on a military base where you are carded before entry, why do you need the gates? Second is Wifi/Hotspot. I called Verizon because my hotspot was worse than dial-up slow and normally it has very good speed. I was told that because of the area (between DC and Baltimore) the tower congestion is such that at certain times of the day it slows down to a crawl. That being the case, the park should have wifi repeaters. All in all we really enjoyed our stay at Camp Meade. - jomark

We've been here a month with a couple more weeks to go. This is a very nice park. Spacious lots, very nice laundry and shower building with a couple break room/library/game areas. Lots of trees but probably ? to ½ of sites are possible for satellite reception. Overall very quiet, except for the base special of reveille at 0630 over the base loudspeakers. Earplugs are useless to counteract, but we got used to it. Better than train whistles or traffic noise. They don't do it on the weekends.
They don't have wifi or cable, though I understand they're working on that right now.
Only downside is there's been a bit of musical spots. Their reservation software doesn't optimize the spots to minimize moves, so we moved twice in a week, but spent almost a month in the current spot. Seemed like it could be minimized since it was mostly people already there moving around. When we extended, the person we dealt with in the office made it so we didn't have to move again, but the experience/interest level of the staff varies.
This is certainly the best value in the DC area. We will be back in the spring for sure.
Rate based on monthly rate. - Seb

A tough one to rate. Overall the campground is not a bad choice for visiting the Baltimore/DC area. We are local to the area and were doing a day trip out of and back into BWI airport, which is close by, and decided to use this campground to stay the night before and after our flight. The problem was that the KOA website enables you to book a site at the campground, they evidently have 10 sites open through the winter, but does not indicate that all facilities in the campground are closed. Our little trailer does not have a wet bath, so we rely on a campground's facilities. Rate was considered to be already discounted and so the KOA membership would not apply, again something else the website did not mention (when booking it still advertises that you save an additional 10% with a membership at check out).
Otherwise it is a nice campground, it is next to a highway, but it is not a busy highway at night and there are a lot of trees between the highway and the campground, so noise was minimal. The site was level gravel with a patio, and all utilities worked well. They have nice long pull throughs in the open as well as a nice wooded section, and cabins sprinkled throughout. It is an easy trip many area attractions, and they run a shuttle in season. - Cyclonic

Stayed a week and really enjoyed our deluxe spacious pull through campsite with concrete patio, table/chairs, grill and shade. Park is in an area with many nearby Interstate and four lane highways with limited access making it complicated to get to/from but GPS worked fine. Located about 20-30 minutes to Annapolis and 40-60 minutes to Washington or Baltimore. Park has many trees for shade and many sites can access satellite (be sure to ask if you need this when making reservation). Did not use but park has pool, playground, dog park, large inflated jumping pillow, fee based shuttle service. Roads and pad are level gravel in pull through area. Space between sites are grass and decent width between rigs and many are spacious for KOA standards (this is more upscale KOA Holiday than your average KOA). Park was very clean. They charge $10 to reserve a specific site. - Tom Willing

Staff was very helpful and took us to our site. We stayed 7 nights and drove to New Carrolton station and caught the metro downtown Washington most days so never used any other facilities. Never used their shuttle. Quite east to do. Wifi was typical some times there but mostly not. No cable. - Aussie Chums

Reiterating what others have stated: approach from the west and you're OK; approach from the east and beware the 11 foot bridge (and we saw NO warning signs!!); 30 amp only; entry road is indeed steep, but not really a problem unless your vehicle is underpowered; a few sites looked like they would require more care to get into with larger rigs. Other tidbits we learned: sites are pretty widely spaced and thus quite private; very wooded which makes it a nice 10 degrees cooler, but forget about satellite anywhere; the potable water is in one spot and the dump is in another and both are on the inside "electric" loop; you must use their wood, but they have plenty; you have to make a 90 degree turn to exit, which isn't a big deal unless there are cars queued up at the entrance like when we left --- we had to thread the needle; when leaving the park the entrance ramp on to Hwy 40 is very short, so you'll have to wait for a gap and/or floor it. As others have stated, this is a great state park to get away from it all with a classic feel and hiking trails, pavillions, ranger programs and the quiet of the woods at night. We didn't explore the trails or woods as we used this as a base for exploring Baltimore, so we went into the city every day. Our site was 429, the last on the electric loop, which is very long and has the added advantage that you can go the wrong way on the one way road for about 20 yards and pull right into your driveway without having to go all the way around the loop when returning to camp. - darwinmoore

Good for what it was - a reasonable state park very close to Baltimore. We stayed here while visiting my daughter who lives in the city. Easy access into Baltimore. Most sites are spacious and look easy to get into. Rest rooms were dirty and didn't appear to be cleaned during our stay. Our site was very difficult to get into, though the campground hosts were familiar with it and spent a half hour with us helping us jockey our rig back and forth to get in. We made a list of sites we will use next time, which does NOT include 427 - avoid that site if you have anything other than a small trailer or class B camper. - DaveAndJoyce

The registration area is away from the camping area and if arriving from the East is hard to access due to a 11 foot underpass restriction. RV sites use the inner loop which has 30 amp power but no water. Sites are about 30 feet apart. Residential housing is visible behind the campsites but we did not have noise problems. Only one place to take on fresh water or dump waste but we did not have to wait. Overall functional but not scenic. - rudyhehn

According to the rating I gave this RV park, you can see I wasn't too impressed. Let me first say that Andrews AFB is the President's Flagship Base as Air Force 1 is housed here and all the officers and personnel that keep everything in Presidential order. This FamCamp is an embarrassment to the base - in my opinion. It is old and apparently suppose to be upgraded but it is obvious that no work has been done to make improvements even though areas are roped off and those areas are totally unkempt with tall grass and neglected. The area that is being used is mowed where the RV's park, but the center section is growing wild. It is overgrown as close as 4' from the back of the RV and full of no-see-ums and jiggers. There is only 30 amp available. We have a 50 amp unit and have used 30 amp many times without problems. We simply use one a/c. In this park, 30 amp may as well have been plugging our RV into a household plug. If I ran an a/c the only other items that could be on were the LED lights. To take a shower we had to turn off the air (it was 94 while we were here), turn on the water heater and let the water get hot, take the shower then turn off the water heater and turn on the air. One thing at a time. Couldn't use the microwave or convection oven at all. And this after we had them put a new 30 amp breaker on the pole. When we first got here, the breaker kept tripping no matter what we did. The person working in the office claims I told her I had a 36' unit (I did not - that would not be to my benefit to say such a thing. We are 39') and that was the only reason she made the reservation for us. What difference 3 feet makes to the power pole is beyond me. She was very rude and argumentative. It is mostly her tone and attitude. We did not hit it off well at all. We will not be back. Although Andrews is a great place for visiting DC, I would not recommend this RV park. - jomark

we were only staying for 2 weeks but Denise squared us away and we were able to stay for 15 days! The staff was great Denise was very helpful!!! We had no issues plus plenty of space to walk our dogs! Grandsons came to visit our last week and had a blast!!! They are renovating some sites! We will definitely be back!!! - Griffin2

Half of the park was closed for reconstruction, the other half was neglected. Site had concrete pad which was the most positive aspect of the park. One staff member was rude and seemed to think answering questions was not in job duties. Roads gravel, muddy and potholed, restrooms were clean but really outdated, staff seemed to think it was okay to leave mops and brooms anywhere they stopped using them.
Grass around office area trimmed and mowed, rest of areas and campsites grass was 12-18 inches tall. Grass around dog area fencing mowed, inside not mowed. Piles of limbs and leaves everywhere.
Half of park being rebuilt/upgraded to 50 amp, but placement of utilities made no sense. While a very good location for visiting Washington DC, a disappointing park. One would think that the support base for the Presidential fleet of aircraft would be a showplace in all its facilities.
Base Exchange being remodeled but open for business, commissary large. Golf course one of the best I've ever seen on a military base. - Retired Medic

We stayed here with our Stockade group. There are only two large open field sites available. We stayed at site 1 which is closest to the bathrooms. There is a water spigot near the restrooms but there are no shower facilities. Each site has a fire ring, picnic tables, and a nice new BBQ and a large wooden cooking type area built next to it. It even has hooks for your lantern. The rangers were nice and came out to check on us a few times and the park is great. The disk golf course and hiking trails were a big hit. We would stay here again. - Cfamily

Customer service was nice. Official checkout time is 2PM but they let everyone checkout at 3PM. T mobile service was great. Sites in the front and across from storage lots are large and level. Sites within the trees deeper in are tight and not so level. Too bad no online reservations. They do allow you to transfer reservations, pretty friendly policy. Not that much to do around area, rural. Nice Halloween activities with free hotdogs, chips, drinks on Saturday night. - univmd

We planned to stay a week but had to have parts shipped in and were able to extend to make repairs. Staff was very helpful and professional. Too many trees for satellite but cable was good. Water pressure, WiFi and power good. Office is open 9-9! There is a security gate so get a swipe card , worth the $40 deposit - no problem returning it. Main roads are paved, secondary roads gravel; sites are gravel and grass. Sites were a little close, only about 10’ from my awning to the neighbors slide. You have to back in on the blind side on the FR row. Pet friendly. The road in is twisty, with tight turns and hills, no matter which exit off 70. They recommend Exit 73 but there is a round about - it has fewer turns. Exit 76 has more tight turns and hills but doable - take your time. Either exit is fine - try not to enter the first time at night. We would stay here again. A side note - they have awesome RV storage. One row even has electricity. - Born2RV

This is our second visit here, arrived just after Florence. Site was level, very little mud. Had to bail out the water well to hook up, no different than before. We camped in the FR section, which is more open than the other sections. Still not good for getting satellite service, however the cable is very good. The laundry is very clean and the machines are excellent. We were visiting friends in the area, so jusst stayed two night. - Nautilus

This is a nice little park very conveniently located to DC. There is no water or sewer at the sites, so come prepared! We filled our fresh tank and made it 6 nights without an issue. As others have mentioned, the shower house has 6 individual rooms that are like private bathrooms, except that they're open above so you can hear everything. The fans were never on, but if they could be turned on it would probably help with the humidity. I suspect the showers are hosed down, but lifting up the "handicap bench" disclosed mucky black hair balls that could easily have been cleaned, and it was very slimy! An elevated mat in the dressing area would be nice so you don't have to stand in the water that comes out from the shower or is left from the hosing down. Also, check the water before you undress - some of the showers only trickle (#1) and the water never gets warm! On the other hand, the sinks spray with such force that you are basically showering there with your clothes on, and the water gets so hot you can't rinse your face with it! Seems like a couple of easy fixes are in order there. Overall it's a nice park, wish we could have explored the trails a bit more, but it rained the first 5 days we were there non-stop, so we only had one nice day. We were grateful the campground is on high ground! The dump station is near the shower house and seems easy to access, we'll use it on our way out. All-in-all, it was convenient for us and we would stay again. - Denise and Glenn

Very convenient location for visiting the DC area. With the recently opened Metro Silver Line, there is a stop only a few miles away. None of the sites have water or sewer, and about half have 50A electric service. The sites are reasonably spaced, and there is little shade. Sat TV and cell service were good. The camping area is high on a hill about a half mile from the lake/water park. The place is quiet on weekdays, but the water park and picnic areas are packed on weekends in the nice weather. - NKA

We had a large site with plenty of room for our dog to be outside. There were trails for hiking and lots of other activities in the park. People in the office were very friendly and helpful. Dish TV, AT&T cell phones and Verizon MiFi all worked well. We stayed here for a week and enjoyed it tremendously. It was a great base for sightseeing in the immediate area and in D.C. Will definitely stay here again if we are in the area. - Bobbi1948

First of all the site we were given D69 was very unlevel. We are full time RVers and have never come across a site anywhere near that bad at a campground. Other than that the campground is very nice, clean, and quiet. They do however seem to have a very strict check out time as someone knocked on our door 6 minutes after 11, then came by again shortly after as we were getting ready to pull out. We have never had someone basically chasing us out of a campground like that before. - BrittanyFenn

Roads into the park and inside the park are good. Check in was fast and friendly and they offered area information. The park is well maintained. There is a camp store with your basic needs. Lots of trails for hiking and activities for kids. We were in D-51, a gravel pull through with full hook ups. The site is VERY unlevel no matter where you pull in. We used all of our jack pads and our tires were far off the ground. We needed to buy additional sewer hose to reach the sewer connect. To turn the water on - there is a small ring under the faucet that needs to be pulled down - they didn't tell us this but luckily a neighbor knew what to do! The sites are very large and wooded. It was plenty long enough for our 37-foot Class A, tow-dolly and parking the car. Extremely quiet. It seems they are working on the leveling issues, which would give it a 10 star rating. The laundry room and bathrooms are clean. There is no WiFi. Our Verizon signal was good. We stayed May 28 - June 4, 2018 and paid $36 a night with our Passport America discount. - BarrettsHappyTrails
