just checked and read reviews. Its near Lothian, Md., has new ownership, is not perfect, but for OPs bucket list and our extended this spring trip to NIH in Bethesda, for DW treatment, Cherry Hill is too much resort ( been there then ) for a DC , MD. & DE. if you are parking to see the area sights.

Four a tourist visit by a person new or unfamiliar with the area Cherry Hill is your best bet.
However for a NIH visit I agree Cherry Hill maybe a bit too much.
Consider Little Bennet Regional Park as an alternative.
Much closer than the old Duncan's. large sites in a park setting.

Wouldn't it be great to have a nice sized National Park located 10 miles from downtown DC, a few minutes drive or a half hour walk to train service to DC?

Check out Greenbelt National Park. It is within the beltway, even closer to downtown than Cherry Hill, more convenient and of course way less expensive.

Everyone keeps forgetting close to the Metro.

Greenbelt Park looks interesting, but reviews are mostly poor, although many of them were old. It recently reopened after road repair/maintenance. Has anyone been there lately? Location and price certainly look good.

Did you see this on the greenbelt campground website?

No attachments to trees.
All vehicles must be parked on the asphalt pad.
All campfire must be contained in the grill.

Help us preserve this park for this and future generations.

Following.
My Dad lives in Alexandria. We stay at Pohick Bay, but I imagine it beyond public transit.

I have seen several closer in options for military only, too.

Not to mention, unless I am wrong Greenbelt National Park has NO HOOK UPS...

If 2 retired folks are looking to stay for 7 days ( 6th - 13th) I would think that would not be a great fit... Just guessing on my part.

I have stayed at Greenbelt. It was a pleasant wooded area with lots of space between campgrounds. Each site had a concrete area for parking. Greenbelt is very close to the Metro. Depending on the actual site selected, the walk is pretty short, several tenths of a mile. To drive means leaving the park, driving in a semicircle and parking in the metro lot. Total drive would be a couple of miles.

There are no hookups that I remember but I rarely look for them or use them.

I think this is an appropriate place to note how accommodating Cracker Barrel Restaurants are on our travels. Last time we stopped, there were 30+ RVs. Most recently, we've overnighted with them in Fort Myers and Miami FL. I haven't used them in the DC area, but expect to next time we pass through.
