Campground Review #57 Cherry Hill Park in College Park, Maryland near Washington DC

On this episode of Campground of the Week, Stephanie and Jeremy Puglisi of RV Family Travel Atlas review Cherry Hill Park in College Park, Maryland just outside of Washington DC.

The Campground

This campground is their preferred choice for exploring the amazing city of Washington DC, and they highly recommend it as an “Urban Basecamp”, a campground that gives you easy access to a great American city.

Cherry Hill park is located within a highly urban area, so campers need to be prepared for some road noise. The tradeoff is that you are under 30 minutes from the major attractions in Washington DC. You also have access to DCs public transportation system–there is a bus stop within the campground that will take you to the Metro, and Metro cards are available for sale in the camp store. That’s about as easy as it gets!

Campground Review #52 Timberlane Campground outside of Philadelphia in Clarksboro, New Jersey


On this episode of Campground of the Week, we have a review of Timberlane Campground which is the closest campground to Philadelphia.  Located in Clarksboro, New Jersey, this is what we like to call a base camp: a great place to park your rig or pitch your tent when exploring an urban destination.


Timberlane is a private, family-owned campground and offers a surprising amount of natural beauty considering its proximity to the City of Brotherly Love. The amenities are not fancy, and some things could use updating, but they are sufficient for relaxing after a long day of enjoying the food and historical sites that Philadelphia has in spades.
