Cherry Hill Park: what do users think?


Eric Isaacson: I had high expectations and they were well met. So much of the staff was just so friendly and actually trying to make sure we enjoyed our stay. I even saw a lifeguard smiling while watching kids play in the pool. They're just happy and helpful and care. The facilities were great. We played in the pool, did laundry, enjoyed their out door movie night, played on multiple playgrounds, and sat in the hot tub. You'll want to make sure you have a support slinky for your sewer hose though as their drain pipes are a little elevated. also, just a heads up that the Cherry Hill bus line that starts and ends at the gate is not super dependable and just doesn't show sometimes, twice for us. That's not the campgrounds fault, just a heads up for visitors. On this trip, we've seen Mt. Rushmore, the Statue of Liberty, the Gateway Arch, the National Mall, and the Smithsonian Zoo (to name a few) but Cherry Hill is the favorite destination for some of my kids and in the top few for all of them. This was a sad place to move out of as we continued our trip. Thank you!
Response: Thanks, Eric, it makes us so happy to hear that you and your family were treated well at our campground. We love our staff, and we're so glad they made such a positive impact on your stay!

Gigliotti Family: Great RV resort with lots of amenities and close to DC. We stayed for 3 nights over Easter. Sites are a little small but very clean. Bathhouses were close and also very clean. We had planned on going into DC 2 separate days but there was so much to do at the resort and our kids were having so much fun we decided to stay at the campground for 1 of the days instead of going into DC. The transportation offered to the metro was excellent and so convenient! Being novice campers, we forgot a few things but the general store at the campground had everything we needed. The cafe also has excellent food! We will definitely be back!!
Response: Thanks for camping with us - we're happy to hear your family enjoyed the amenities so much! See you next time :)

Kellie Fischer: We brought our RV in at night and they were very accommodating to helping us find our site. Jon was so kind and helpful to us our whole stay. We really appreciated his help and conversation! The location was fabulous! The young man in the camp store gave us exact directions into Washington DC and even assisted in loading subway cards so I didn't have to fuss with getting them at subway station. Great customer service! Thank you Cherry Hill Park!
Response: We agree, Jon rocks! We will pass on the compliment. We're so glad our staff helped make your trip easy and relaxing!

Desi Jerry: The camp grounds was immaculate, bathrooms were clean at all times! We stayed in the premium tent site that were well worth the extra fee. Having the lawn chairs and gazebo was wonderful… Our family will stay here again! Location was close to stores if you needed to pick up groceries. The site also supplied Ice and wood delivery!
Response: We're so glad you enjoyed the premium tent sites - thanks for camping with us, Desi!

Michael Kraxberger: What a great place! The campgrounds are huge, but because of the segmented areas, it still has a small park feel - depending on where you are located. Some areas are quite tight and look crowded, others a little more spacious. Location is everything - this is 5 minutes from the Metro station (actually 2, we always went to Greenbelt station) which will take you anywhere inside the beltway, several downtown locations, and even to Mt. Vernon. The campground also has several private tours directly into DC - we took the night tour, which was a marked difference in the standard group tour. Grounds - exceptionally maintained. Amenities - beyond expectations. DC highlights seminar at 4:00 every day - fantastic content and helpful advice about the city. 2 pools, Hot tub, and sauna, two laundry rooms, clean, spacious, well-lit bathhouses, kids programs, gated access - all above standard. This is one of the best in the country!
Response: Wow, Michael, thanks so much! We're really glad you were impressed with us, and we hope we helped make your trip to DC everything it could be. Thanks for camping with us!

Angeli: Everything was Excellent! The customer service was great. Everyone my husband and I dealt with that worked at the campground was very friendly , helpful and welcoming. The facilities ( Bathhouses) the shower stalls were keep pristine, there were very good water pressure and plenty of hot water. All of the amenities were obviously well maintained, The pool, Splash pad, miniature Golf, Basketball Court. The campground at Cherry Hill Park is a beautiful place with many areas of peaceful tranquility so you can really relax. Also the roadways are well paved and lighted to make driving at night around the campground or even walking around at night quite comfortable. We used a tent and our site #116 was great. plenty of room for our vehicle, tent and lounge chairs. A picnic table and fire was provided. Thank you to everyone at Cherry Hill Campgounds. My husband and I really enjoyed ourselves and are already planning a return trip later this year.
Response: We're so glad you enjoyed your trip, Angeli! Sounds like we'll see you again soon :)

Shelli Echave: Park was wonderful! The staff was super friendly and helpful, the grounds were very clean and well maintained. The laundry and showers were conveniently located and reasonably priced. The metro bus made it easy to connect to the metro line for the ride into DC. Overall, I couldn't be happier with my stay.
Response: Thanks, Shelli, we're so glad to hear that!

Jeff Dykie: Our family stayed here in a travel trailer. We chose Cherry Hill Park because of how close it is to Washington DC. Cherry Hill is fabulous! We have stayed at many campgrounds and this was one of the nicest. The pride the owners and employees have in this campground is evident when you first enter. There really are no "bad" sites. A lot to do, great store. Went to DC on the express bus, very convenient. We already booked for next summer!
Response: Thanks, Jeff - we're so glad to hear you'll be joining us again next year!

Ashley Savina: Love this park! I stayed in the couple' style dog friendly pod and it was one of the cleanest places I've stayed. It was nice having the climate control, electricity, bed, table/chairs, mini fridge and microwave for more of a "glamping" experience. It was nice having shelter during the rain as well. You do hear traffic from the highway which was like white noise to me but for some it might take away from wanting to enjoy "peace and quiet" The bath house was very clean too.This camp ground is well taken care of. Lots of activities around the park, I can't wait to come back!
Response: Thanks Ashley - we're so glad you enjoyed the pod!

Eric Wolf: This was our second trip to Cherry Hill. We were here 5 years ago and stayed in a cabin, that has since been upgraded to a Yurt. This time we came in our own camper. We would highly recommend and will definitely return when we want to visit DC again. The convenience of the location is unbeatable. They do run a bus from the campground to the nearest metro station. We opted to drive our truck to the Greenbelt station and park for a $4.95 flat rate during the week, free on weekends and get a 3 - day metro pass ($28.00) We could not have been happier with this decision. The drive in on weekdays to DC was routinely showing 1 hour on google maps. The Campground has definitely made many improvements since we were last here. The pool is a fun spot, the dog park is great, the mini golf is as good as any that would pay to go to. (there is a $1 fee per person) I was glad to pay as it kept kids from just congregating there. The workers were all very friendly. We ended up in the middle of a large group of campers who told us they were there to party. Party they did, but the campground was on top of them and shut them down promptly at 10 p.m. every day. The bathhouses were clean and maintained, as is the whole campground. It is very well kept up. The store is well stocked with groceries and essentially an RV parts store. The only negative is that there is a fair bit of highway noise, but we were okay with that since we were so close to DC.
Response: Thanks for sharing your experience with us, Eric. We agree that the Metro is the best way to avoid the often traffic-y drive into DC. We are so happy to hear that we were on top of enforcing our quiet hours - we've implemented a ranger program over the past couple of years to address this exact issue, and we're so pleased with our excellent team! We appreciate you camping with us, and we hope we'll see you again next time you're traveling in our area!

Greenbelt Campground: what do users think?


Heather Bowman: Upon checking in, realized our site was too small for our tents (a 3 person and a 1 person). We were able to switch sites but then realized the bathrooms were gross. The mens room did not have doors on the stalls which made my 10 year old son uncomfortable. The ranger was incredibly helpful and kind, but we left.

C F: So I understand that the campground has been closed for awhile and recently opened. It could definitely use some upgrades, but seems like they are working on it. Bathrooms are outdated and on the dirty side, but warm and functional. It's been below freezing at night so the tick problem isn't so bad yet, but I did find one on my dog. I imagine it will get worse as the weather gets warmer. The park is really big with trails and picnic areas, but because of the cold weather I haven't done much hiking, but the one trail I did hike was nice. The camp host is super nice and drops in to chat while doing his rounds, and was very helpful with a few things I needed and questions I had. Overall, for 20 bucks a night to be this close to DC, I can't believe that the place is not packed for cherry blossom season, but it's almost empty. It's really a nice campground and will hopefully get better if they do some upgrades, which it seems like they are.

Arndts Aren’t Staying Put: We enjoyed our time at Greenbelt Campground. This affordable option near the District was awesome for exploring the Capitol. Lots of nature and wildlife to explore at this beautiful spot. The only things we didn’t love were the tight fitting campsites, unlevel spaces, and lack of electric hookup options. Still, we recommend this park! We’re the Arndts, a family of four (+2 cats) traveling the US’ state and national parks full time. Follow us on Instagram: @arndts.arent.staying.put

Blaine Kaiser: Pretty good campground. $20/night is not terrible for how close you are to DC and metro stations to take you in via train. Spots are nice and blacktopped. The fire pit and grill in my pictures are some of the nicer ones I could find to photograph. A lot of the fire pits are pretty well destroyed. The bathrooms are probably a 6/10. I'm not sure they got cleaned the first week we were there. The showers could use more attention than what they get, the shower often times has a drain full of hair. It would be awesome if there was power provided. Overall, totally worth the stay.

Scott Schroth: Awesome camp ground. Very well kept paths and pad suites. Most camp sites have a fire cover they ask you to use for control. The cover is a great aid to help cook food or roast marshmallows. Most site areas have a picnic cable and a standing grill near by each site.

merlemcc: Stayed one night while passing through on a bike trip. Our fellow campers are quiet, but you hear some traffic noise from the city. Our campsite was washed out from heavy rain and unusable; we set up our tents on the pavement. Bathrooms were clean enough, with nice hot water in the shower, but in disrepair. In general, it looks like a park hanging on with a shoestring budget. Ranger was very friendly and took the time to chat with us.

Mirko Abad: Very peaceful. Really relaxing is worth the trip and spend a few days.

Waleed AlRayes: Online and easy booking, amazing place and close to downtown attractions

Sebastien Pilon: Perfect place to stay if you want to visit the Capitol while camping and having fun!!

Chris: Great campgrounds! Plenty of drive-in campsites with built-in picnic tables, fire pits, and warm restrooms.

James Walker: The Park Service employees do a tremendous job, that a lot of people never think about. When visitors tour Washington, DC events like the Cherry Blossom Festival and parades, just highlight how much extra goes into landscaping, building maintenance, and technical support.

Eric Lewis: I love working for the Parkservice.

Clentis Scott: Shout outs to those individuals who helped to clean up on and around the World War I I Memorial after last night storm July 19, 2016. I apologized for taking you for granted. Trees and debris removed #Always out thereThank you

Valencia Jackson: The bathroom were disgusting and the women was not open so we had to use the men this is not acceptable

Greenbelt Park: what do users think?


Rick Sussman: Though we lived in the area for nearly 25 years (Montgomery County) this was our first time here. And a wonderful time of year for camping, too, with hardly anybody else here. We spent 5 nights in D loop in our 30 ft travel trailer, using our generator throughout the day and evening as necessary. Our site was just long enough for us, fairly level and open. We spent much of our time outside the park visiting family. And as close to very urban areas as it is, in the back of the campground it almost felt remote. Sunsets were beautiful.

Na'ilah Dawkins: I gotta say as my first time coming here there is so much space, it's within 15-20 minutes, and fun for all age groups! It was my first time at the park. I was participating in 'Eco-Games' a Sierra Club event! I'm a member, I went. It was very fun! I was alarmed though at the park bathroom situation and lack of available staff concerning communicating about any concerns. The bathroom needs soap on deck and ut didn't! Thank goodness I had hand sanitizer. The women's bathroom left sink didn't work. I used the one to the right side. Disappointed. Where is the funding for national parks like this going, if bathroom necessities are lacking? More funding for our state parks are needed!

Moving on with Old Man River Old man river: I camped at this national park last night May 4th 2022. I am a tent camper and want certain things. I want a bathroom close. Before you book please know what you are booking. A great number of the camping sites have (for me) too much of a slant. I drove around took the number of different campsites and then booked They charge 20.00 per night and have the discount rate of half price for the disabled card holders. The park is close to Washington DC.

Richard C. IV: With miles of unpaved trails meandering through a lush and verdant forest teaming with life, it is easy to forget you are inside the capital beltway. The freshly repaved roads throughout the park are a magnet for road bikes zipping up and down the small hills. Truly a wonderful outdoor oasis in the heart of the DMV.

Jarmonay Nelson: This place is decent. When you have a group of first time, campers or children. I did not like that. The people drove around all throughout the night. I mean it's safe. They make sure that we're safe, but it was like kind of annoying when your children are trying to sleep and they still have their high beams on making sure that there's no fire or anything. . This place has a lot of bugs like of every kind I seen so many bugs in the bathroom at our campsite and the grass just everywhere hanging out spiders all types of critters. This place definitely had a lot of extra wood and trees around to help you grow better fire. I like that they had a clean bathroom and a water pump. This campground feels like a big community and I like that, but I also love privacy so I probably won't come back unless I invite a big group of children or friends who want to experience camping. You can hear the police cars and the city still. And that's not very peaceful but overall we enjoyed the stay.

Favio Urla: Plenty of parking alway a plus; and benches. No parking or entrance fee. Has a short trail and a long trail (1.4 miles). Pet friendly, but do please pickup after your friends 🐕💩 droppings.

Mike Jones: Nice park in urban area. Hosted 40 years of Wednesday night bike racing, which is the only reason I go there!

Sean Troxell: The roads and parking lots are open again. We had a nice walk with the kiddos on a brisk sunny day.

Stick X: Its a nice campground with a nice area and also provides showers (not many campgrounds provide showers). Although, the camping sites are really close to each other and it kinda feels a little weird camping 10 feet away from an entire other family. Although the trails are nice.

Hannah T: Great campsite for our tent camping with kids. Had large lots and no gravel camping pad. We got a no electricity lot that Included water nearby and a shower/bathroom nearby and great trails for walking. We did find a Lone Star Tick on one of our party while at the campgrounds. Hadn’t realized they were in the area.

Washington DC / Capitol KOA Holiday: what do users think?


RandThrockM: Good place to getaway and relax. Bathroom and showers we're well maintained. Campsites a little close to each other but neighbors were friendly. Hiking trail not bad, need more and clear markings as well as bushes need to be trimmed some on the path. Inside the registration/store we met one of the best workers there, sorry feel bad can't remember this older gentleman's name. Very helpful and polite throughout our whole stay, definitely deserves kudos for going over and beyond his job. 👍🏽 If staying longer, there are some good shopping and activities nearby.

Nicole Neumann: I would rate this place 0 stars if I could. The staff was not friendly/helpful at ALL. My family and I live in our camper and are just passing through the DC area. Thank GOD it is only a 2 night stay. My kids went to the jump pad and I was sitting outside of my camper watching them, however the staff would not allow that. Even though, there were 3 other kids on the jump pad with no parents in sight. I was at least watching my children. Once the staff decided to tell me they could not jump unless I was STANDING at the fence line, we tried to mention that there were other children up there with no parents around and instead of having a grown up conversation, the staff decided to drive away on their golf cart in the middle of us talking to them. They were extremely rude. The staff is truly watching your every step, so if you like having baby sitters, then by all means, this is the campground for you. On top of the unfriendly staff, the facility is filthy. The pool is now open for the summer and the water is GREEN. You would think after being closed all winter, they would have had it cleaned and ready for opening week. I would NEVER stay here again, nor would I even recommend this campground to my worst enemy.

Mia Fish: It was good enough for what we needed. It was off season and we were happy to get a place to stay. Our spot wasn’t great due to the size of our rig and the spot was up an incline then we had to go back and forth to find most level spot. Other spots much more level but in all fairness we might have asked for this spot not realizing how it was in real life. Easy to get to in snd out. No narrow barriers. You can unhook right outside check in office. I’d definitely stay again.

Anne Byrnes: Worst experience at a KOA ever. We found one staff member to be blatantly rude and condescending during our stay. He was abrasive and challenging to my husband in tone and manner. It was totally inappropriate and unnecessary. The showers and restrooms have bugs everywhere. They keep the doors to these areas open 24 hrs a day so anything could crawl into the area. Disgusting. The water is cold and the shower stalls so small you can't move. Overall the place is dirty. We've always stayed at KOA campgrounds and never had this type of experience prior. Keep driving and avoid this place.

Lill_Ginge: After staying here, my views on this location are severely altered. Aside from the low cost and distance to the city, everything was negitve, the largest problems being with a complete lack of hot water in the showers and sink. It was also next to a large highway and a airport which isn't really the "camping adventure" anyone is looking for. While my stay was enjoyable, this was only due to my family's presence.

Dr. Mott: Capital KOA only receives 1 star. We stayed at a "premium site" ($100). We arrived to a dirty fire ring and a non working grill. They cleaned the fire ring and disassembled the grill but never fixed it. They left the gas on and it smelled terrible so I turned it off. Most of the staff is polite but a few are indifferent. The bathrooms were not cleaned frequently but were not terrible. I stay here twice a year every year but will not be back. It's not worth the price even though the location is central to DC, Annapolis and Baltimore.

Julie Moore: My daughter came down with a fever the day before our arrival. She also developed a cough. We called to cancel our reservations to do the right thing even though of course we were disappointed to not have our family vacation. I called ahead, but it was not 48 hours ahead. We would have called 48 hours if she fell ill the day before. I was told that I would be charged the first night. The receptionist said that she would speak to the manager and she was sure that given the circumstances, it would be refunded. I still have not been refunded and I've called several times to resolve this. I would have used the site and kept our distance if we had known that we would have not been refunded. I am very disappointed in this KOA. Seems like they would rather people come sick than encourage people to do the right thing.

MaryBeth L: I’ve been a slacker about my reviews but I’m making a point to leave a review because clearly some of the issues haven’t been resolved. We stayed in March. Staff did not make clear what check in process was and i didn’t personally hear from them until I contacted them that there was no hot water in the showers. We were told they were “on the list” and it should be fixed next week and in the mean time to use the showers by the pool. Clearly that hasn’t been resolved. Also - the name is a misnomer because it’s nearly an HOUR to get into the Capitol area most days. I’d stay here again if I had to but it won’t be my first choice. I let them keep 3 stars because the sites were level, they had FHU and facilities - even if they weren’t very useful, and they had a playground.

Dean Krebs: They had no hot water in the rest rooms. I was very happy to be able to shower in our trailer. I have, however, stayed there many times in the past going back to the late 70s with our children and grandchildren and had wonderful times, so I won't give up on them for one bad week.

Alecia Burke: Update: they charged my debit card without authorization because I was a guest to a camper and I left after 12. I never signed anything so this is illegal. This KOA leaves a lot to be desired. Some of the staff were nice, some, not so much! Rules changed depending on who you spoke to, and so did prices. Guests went from $10 (5 per person) to $15 (5 per person and per car). The pool was closed for the season (we visited in JUNE). Not worth the price. Poorly planned sites that are close to each other and have no pathways in between, so you have to walk ALL the way around all of the sites to get to the playground, if you're parked in the middle of the campground. The playground didn't have enough gravel, so you can see the very bottom of the playground (the part that's supposed to be buried). I would not stay here again and would not recommend it.

FamCamp: what do users think?


Xavier Lugo: Super Friendly staff... Great location.Sites are tight in the electric only area, however, well sized on the full hookup sections. The park needs some work on both landscaping and the ammenities.

Christopher French: Great place. The staff is friendly, professional, and helpful. I recommend this place to anyone visiting the area. We have a 42ft 5th wheel and got full hookups. There are trees all around, and we heard a few jets in the morning, but we slept in a bit.

J: Recent rate change to $45 per night full hook up. Camp is neglected. Camp host runs the place. No on site government employees. Hard to get ahold of anyone to make reservations. Calls are not returned. Operational Hours are limited for Famcamp staff. Famcamp employees are off site and do not know what is going on at camp. Numerous empty slabs available but we are full. Go figure. Campers clean laundry room and bath house. No government contracts for that? Appears there is no competent leadership in the our door recreation office or in the FSS.

Hope Cico: Not bad for a fam camp. Nothing fancy. Wish there was a playground close by or paved roads, so the kids could have played more.

Gini Scherer: Denise and Adele are very helpful. They go out of their way trying to help us with our situation. Internet 'sucks'. Almost non-existent in the campground. Time to grade the driveway! Trees need to be trimmed so they don't damage larger, taller RVs.

Dianne Bennett: I read a few reviews on how bad the campgrounds and base were and was scared as to what we would find. The campgrounds were neat, concrete slabs, a/c in laundry room didn't work but looked like new washers and dryers. No wifi. The base looked better now than in 2012 when my daughter and her husband were stationed there. BX and Commissary were good and prices not too bad. Very sad that the stupid virus was here and all museums were closed. Zoo opened on Friday but not able to get tickets only so many people allowed. So we stayed on base, saw wonderful friends, went to Walmart and read books. Two and a half weeks on to North Carolina and Gem Mountain!!! Yeah.

Amy Street: Our stay here was uneventful. The only things this campground has going for it is location to DC(metro)& level cement pass. It needs a complete overhaul!! The roads inside the park need regrading. They are very bumpy and uneven, NOT good for your RV/camper. The buildings are very dated. The grounds have been ignored for a long time. They are covered with layers & layers of old leaves and sticks. I will say, the laundry area was nice and priced great however, there is no change machine available and office doesn't have any either. We had to leave campground and go to golf course clubhouse for change "frustrating ". Denise in office was nice and very helpful. Honestly, the manager of this facility needs to take a good look at it and ask him/her self "Am I proud of this campground I manage "? I also want to say, the military NEEDS to start putting more money into these Famcamps. This is NOT any way to treat your active, veteran and disabled personal.

r k: Fantastic experience. Denise and the camp host were extremely helpful, professional, friendly and overall awesome! The facility is clean, organized and close to DC. Uber allowed on base for easy transport. Highly recommend!!

Jason Deleo: This new generationAre spoiledComplaining about internet why they're camping I guess they don't know what real camping injoying nature

Jared Preshong: Mosquitoes were insane, but not their fault, just a warning. Woman managing grounds is rude, she accused me of being a "speeder" on the phone before ever meeting me and warned me if my dog wouldn't be quiet while I was away that they'd have security forces break my door down to get her out. I had arranged to stay for 25 days. I have paperwork confirming this. Half way through my stay I was told I was only staying 15 days and no explanation was given as to why my stay was shortened. Place is far from pet friendly. When you check in they will give you a full page of rules for your dogs. There are signs EVERYWHERE telling you "No pets allowed." There is a tiny dog park up front, which is where your dog is expected to poop, I'm not sure if they know this, but a dog will poo where it wants, regardless of what you want. I'd go as far to say this place is hostile towards families with pets. If you are not at a full hookup site like I was, water used to fill my fresh water tank smelled odd. Like it had bug spray in it.

Rock Creek Park: what do users think?


Maame N: Great picnic areas. Spacious and clean spaces. Bathrooms were relatively clean for a park. No funky smell, well lit, and ac controlled. Kayaking, pedal boat, and row boat available on the lake. Playgrounds are really nice. Home/bike trail available too.

Mike Jones: A jewel in the heart of DC. A great escape from the city within the city. Great for biking, hiking, picnicking, bird watching, golfing, and more. I'm so grateful to live 5 minutes from Rock Creek for the past 25 years.

Kenneth Kilgour: Rock Creek Park is an underappreciated DC treasure. It's lousy with wildlife. It's tranquil. And it's nearby. Rock Creek has a nature center, hiking trails, and picnic areas, some with pavilions. Some of the roadways are closed to motor vehicles. Please do not feed the ducks; it violated Park Service rules, and it's harmful to the ducks, besides.

Dawn Anacleto-Tosca: Rock Creek is a total jem in the middle of DC. I love it there so much. So many awesome trails & for as long as I've been going I always find new trails and see new areas.

Esther Y: You can park anywhere with a picnic area. However, traffic can get pretty bad during the day. Lots of trees! There is also a biking path on the side :)

Rosie C: A great place to hike especially during the fall. There are different routes you can take all ranging in distance and intensity. Make sure you get back to your car before dark.

Jason Williams: One of my favorite parks in the DMV area. I've never had issues with parking and it's not as congested on the weekend as many other parks. The scenery is beautiful and I've never noticed any trash or water bottles lying around anywhere throughout the short time I've been coming here. It's a nice way to escape the feeling of being in DC without actually leaving DC.

Joe J.: This relatively large, beautiful park located in the city of Washington DC is a nice escape from the bustles and noises. There are a few nice spots like the amphitheater and a few trails that definitely shouldn't be missed. Overall, I find it amazing to have such a nice nature retreat in the middle of the city with such greenery. This place looks amazing in the summer with green leaves everywhere. The creek is also nice to follow!

Jessica Long: Beautiful paved trails. Wooded trails that were by the creek. It wasn’t the clearest which direction to go to stay in the main wooded region because there weren’t easily accessible or visualized signs with route maps. But lots of ground to discover.

EDP: Love this park. I wish I had more time to discover more of the location. There’s one section closed off to traffic which made it much more enjoyable.

Great Falls Park: what do users think?


Credible Critic: A beautiful park, well-maintained featuring its natural attributes splendidly. The observation areas are well situated for everyone, including the physical-challenged people. Many shaded areas for families to picnic or just simply taking a break to take in the views. We really enjoyed walking, hiking along the river trail. The trail took us right to the edges of many cliffs, showing the spectacular views of the water. A great area to enjoy nature, just a few steps from the hustle of the city. A must visit in the DC area.

Triloka Shanbhag: I love Great Falls park for a good day out in nature. There are so many hikes and trails to choose from and can be for all level of hikers/walkers. Its also a great spot for just a picnic or finding look out points over Potomac. I'm pleasantly surprised at the level of care and maintenance that goes into this large of an area including keeping trails clear. Entry fee to the park is $20/car without a National parks annual pass. Love coming back here.

Parker Kelley: Very fun experience and atmosphere ! I was thrilled to see that they do military discount upon entry. Finding parking was a little tough due to the amount of spots they have available. The park itself, including the bathrooms and walkways, were clean. They had a food truck serving different types of foods and drinks. The views of the waterfall is amazing & the hiking trails also has great views. I will definitely be back.

Jessica Alva: This place is beautiful! You only need to be a walker to experience its beauty. Lots of paved trails. However, there are pathways you can take that are also clearly marked. Plenty of placards to indicate what happened or what is going on at certain locations. There are the overviews of the falls; personally I liked overview 1 best, as it is the closest to the falls!

Cerenna Redmon: Definitely a go-to destination in the area. There are a couple scenic points to see the falls and like many things, you have to see it to get a real feel for just how amazing it is! There are other trails that extend beyond the falls. One trail follows the river and offers some fun rock scrambling. The trails are relatively flat without much elevation gain. So the difficulty is easier. There is a lot of outdoor rock climbing all along the river! If you're into that, try it out. I've climbed here many times, but the early bird gets the worm on the weekends (early bird gets first pick on where to climb). There are two parking lots when you enter the park. Admission is $20 per vehicle or something close to that price. But don't forget you can buy a national parks pass and see other parks year-round! There is a visitor center, bathrooms, picnic tables, and tons of beautiful nature

El Cid: Car lines can be long on the way in. The $20 entrance fee per vehicle feels little steep IMO esp when found out that the visitor center is closed for renovation, and limited availability of rest rooms. Plenty of parking, they fill up fast though, so get there early if you can. Rest rooms are limited considering the number of people at the park, and when they are being cleaned be prepared to wait. There are some rest rooms available but is a little walk in the other direction. Picnic tables are available, a lot of them could use a good pressure washing. Saw several food trucks on site, which is good if you forgot to bring your food. The main attraction of the park: the falls is great, several viewing platforms/overlooks provide good view. it's a bit crowded when we went but not a big issue. Have not explored other trails, but its worth a visit.

armaan Khan: Great place to visit. $20 per car entry fee. The pass is good for a week. Plenty of parking. Multiple view points. Trails is not harsh. White river rafting available. Rocky trail towards the end. There are snakes and spiders along the trail busy over the weekend. The currents are really dangerous. The water is calm near the beginning of the trail. Must experience it.

Steffanny Leiva: What a beautiful place to go for a walk! you really enjoy the view and the constant noise of the water throughout the trail. It is a place that I recommend visiting on weekdays, on weekends many people go and you cannot appreciate the true beauty of the Billy Goat trail.

Da-Wang Wu: There are three overlooks, and each of them has a great view. Although it’s an easy hike, I would recommend wearing comfortable shoes since there are still some rocks and ups and downs. The first overlook is just next to the visitor center, and the other two are within 10 minutes by walking. The entrance fee is $20, and National park pass can be used here. When the weather is good, parking lots can be filled up quickly. Highly recommend for a half/full day trip!

Jeff Kale: Well maintained National Park on the Virginia side of the Potomac River with breathtaking views of the falls and numerous hiking trails. Picnic area near the Visitor Center with charcoal grills and there was a Food Truck there today. Park entrance fees are $20 per vehicle unless you purchase an annual pass for $35 or have a Lifetime Pass. Great family fun!

Fort Foote Park: what do users think?


Carlton Willis: The park is one of the best in the area with the exception that trails can be blocked by falling trees and the grass tends to get too high during the summer. A little maintenance by the NPS and this does up to 5 stars, especially with the addition of interpretive signs a couple of years ago.

Tia Wheeler: This is a nice park for walking, but aside from a few markers and two cannons there is not much regarding the fort. There are some nice views across the river to Alexandria.

Iveth Garcia: I really do love it here. It’s one of my happy places. I well say though, there are days were you find the unexpected. Some good and sometimes smelly unexpected. It’s a very nice place to get your feet wet and maybe fish. I brought my kids here the other day. You do have to keep in mind it’s probably 20 something minute walk from the car to the beach area. It’s has very nice historical sites to see. A lot of hiking!

Heman Gharibnejad: It’s a bit strange to have a national park in the middle of a neighborhood. The area is not so well kept. But the giant guns are a real treat. Despite seeing pictures of them I was still shocked by their size and location. This is a very unique place.

Marleen Greenleaf: Great location for a walk or hike, but be prepared to be bombarded with bugs and cobwebs on the trail.

Samuel Christiansen: This place is local and convenient for a quick hike. The cannons are cool. The trail down to the river both ways is nice. Saw a lot of deer, and I was able to get close. However, there is prevalent trash. This is clearly the result of people who have no stake in this place, or their own community, which is sad.. Not a bad spot for a quick workout hike and to see the cannons. It is a shame that a few bad and lazy people make it nasty for everyone else..

Donnie Horton: Very nice off the beaten path gem of a hike.Best I've had yet

Jennifer Clark: The parking lot is currently closed yet is still accessible. I'm not sure how Covid effects our ability to safely park in a wooded area, but you're offered to brave passing cars and to park in a ditch. I had my Maltese and daughter with me. We could tell early on another hiker was in the area with a pet. After seeing the cannons and wanting to explore closer to the water, the smell of marijuana became quite strong. We decided not to meet our smoking hiker friend and left the trail early.

Lyssa McEachern: My favorite park to bring the dogs! It’s quiet and the other trailgoers are so sweet and friendly. My favorite part is the beach at the end of the trail!!

Keryn Ahmed: We walked through with our bikes September 2019. The highlights were the water views, eating paw-paws that had recently fallen, and the scenic beach at the North end.

George Washington Memorial Parkway: what do users think?


Marcia Dias: I visited Daingerfield Island which is 3/4 miles south from DCA. There is a sailing Marina, bathrooms and a nice deck and grass area where you can picnic, layout by the water and watch airplanes taking off. It's not too noise.There are plenty of parking spots. One more free spot to visit and enjoy the beautiful spots that DMV has to offer!

Laura Inglis: Plenty of places where it's safe to park and walk/bike along a trail running along the parkway. Lots of areas to get photos of the DC Skyline

Kevin Spann: Considering all the construction throughout the DMV, the Parkway is great access to Montgomery County without traveling through the city. However, listening to a GPS and trying to navigate was challenging. The best part is there was always a work around. There are scenic overlooks that are definitely worth visiting.

elvia hernandez: One of my favorite places to visit. You get the best views of DC minus the traffic. There is parking so visiting is just a breeze. It’s great for walking with the family and kids as traffic is always less than 15 mph so everyone is safe. You can picnic and enjoy a nice day under the trees as well

Joana O'Brien: Living in NOVA for over 20 years, this remains my favorite place to drive. I love the entire drive - even through rush hour traffic (and that's saying a LOT). As you drive down the parkway, you are surrounded by luscious green trees and djungle-like flora. Every so often there are "scenic overlooks" where you can stop and look at the beautiful area. The parkway is typically pretty full of traffic, but if you turn on some good tunes and enjoy the outside views, you will wish there were more.

Brian Copes: Let’s start with parking first. If you plan on hiking the turkey run and heritage trail than make sure you park in lot C1. I repeat park in lot C1. My friend and I didn’t do trail research prior and we ended up parking in lot B. There was no long hiking trail from parking lot B. This park has tons of open restrooms which is rare in my opinion. Great place to have a moderate level hike near the Potomac River. I think we were on two separate trails this afternoon so this park does provide variety. The park has park benches and plenty of open field space for any outdoor activities. I loved the little stream that runs through the trail. It seems like a popular dog walking Park as well. I would recommend experiencing the park but please do your trail research ahead of time for a better experience.

Kerry Carlson: The park stops along the parkway are all wonderfully accommodating. From Fort Hunt all the way out to 495, the George Washington memorial Parkway is taking care of by some of the most dedicated park rangers in the national Park service. There are times where the potholes build up, but that's the fallout from being funded entirely by Congress, at the whim of politicians. George Washington memorial Parkway is one of the most beautiful highways in the country.

Michael Andryuk: An outstanding park on the banks of the Potomac River. Check out Mount Vernon, explore Martha Washington's garden, somberly contemplate the struggles of the people the Washingtons enslaved, and enjoy some really cool wax statues of George at different points in his life, from surveyor to colonel to general to president. Recommended for everyone, even if there is a little propaganda.

Todd S: Wonderful road, some of the scenic overlooks are over grown and obstruct the view. However timing is everything here. We came into Washington on a Thursday around 3-5pm traffic was great going into DC but leaving was bottle necked for miles. We left DC Sunday afternoon and the traffic again was great by coming in was heavy but moving

robert honeycutt: Not well cared for as in years gone by. Seems like democratic administration's don't care about memorials that true Americans paid for with their lives and not with a deep hiddened pocket 🤔! Wonder how we'll remember them??

Meridian Hill Park: what do users think?


Shay Wright: This park is beautiful 🤩 it has educational information about local plants and you can even purchase them. The park is larger than I expected with garden grounds and a pond.

Debbie Perez: Had a great time at the park over the Valentine's day weekend. I photographed a couple for their engagement pictures. Big day is in September of this. So happy to be working and sharing in this special moment. Great park, lots to see and do.

Leslie Williston: this place is great for dog and people watching! could use some freshly planted grass though as it’s a bit dry and dirt like. overall fun times here!

Shannon Curvey: Nice park! Great place for an impromptu yoga class!...Wonder why the name changed to Meridian Hill?

Brian SHIELDS: A hidden gem 💎 among the many others eclipsing it, this place is the "Holy Grail" of public gathering venues, bar none! Multiculturalism thrives here...group activities (mostly during weekends) are abounding...yoga, 🧘‍♀️ meditation 🧘‍♂️, musicians, 💃dance, juggling, tightrope walking...myriad entertainment attractions...all within the hallowed realm of Meridian Hill, or, Malcolm X, Park. And yes, there's public restroom 🚻 access daily until 6pm as well. But for the longer Summer Solstice hours of daylight and there's the need for bathroom duty, just visit any of the local restaurants conveniently located nearby and indulge your natural appetites for food, fun, and festivities...but DO return to Meridian Hill Park where "true" community bliss is found and shared!

Ashley Deck: Wonderful park. Stunning architecture. Great people. The drum circle is just the icing on the cake. Such a heartwarming vibe 💗

Tarika Smith: Born and raised in D.C. and yesterday was the first time I've ever visited Meridian Hill Park. I must say it was amazing. Just a overall great vibe. A nice place for people to gather and socialize or just have a relaxing sit down on a blanket. I enjoyed the drums as well as the DJ that was playing music. The only downside is there is not a place where little children can play. It would be nice to have a small play area.

courtney mims: I love this park. It's a 15 min walk from our house but I drive and never had a problem with parking. I love to take my two pekingese to walk at sunset. They get to socialize with over a dozen other pups. They love it even more than I do.

Ryan Conklin: Malcolm X Memorial Park (how you’ll hear most DC residents refer to it) is a gem of a green space in the beautiful Adam’s Morgan neighborhood. Kissed my beautiful girlfriend here, 10/10 experience, we go regularly and so does half the neighborhood. Great sense of community and good jugglers, a taste of a European city in DC.

María VC: Every Sunday afternoon there is a “drum circle” playing! Dozens of people come to watch, dance or play their own drums. You can also have a picnic or take a nap under the trees. Lovely park!!

Buck's Fishing & Camping: what do users think?


Crystal Hailstorks: Walked up on this place four minutes before they opened. They requested that we wait outside for a while. Perhaps to finish pre-shift. Fine. Everything was fairly tasty. The cornmeal fried oysters were a hit with my cousin and I. The wedge salad had a tart/citrus but savory taste to it. Topped with yummy thick cut bacon. Entrees were sort of bland. I enjoyed the cauliflower purée and sprouts. However, the scallops had a rough texture to them. I’m not exactly sure why they tasted rough/dry. Usually scallops have a soft, buttery taste to them. My cousin did enjoy the lemon caper sauce. I’d say the sauce was enjoyable. We also ordered the crab cakes, please order with caution. They aren’t lump crab, if you’re a local. No pic because the dish did not look appetizing. Reason I’m rating this place a two is because I go to restaurants for more than ambiance. I go for food and service. The server was nice and knowledgeable. He neglected to inform me that he charged me twice after we requested a split check. My cousin paid and tipped in cash. After calling the manager tonight when I noticed, she said she couldn’t find the check. I told her I can email everything to her. I asked for email address and she told me it was on the website. Second inconvenience. I went to website and there’s no email address. There’s nothing about this place that would make me return after the manager on duty’s communication with me. Do better.

M planetmike: Consistent, Cozy, Expensive. For a long standing neighborhood restaurant, this one leans towards the expensive side. It is a small space. So reservations are recommended. Try the bar area if there is only two in your party. Service across most restaurants has been impacted by COVID. Bucks is no exception. We had one waiter serving more than her share of tables. While the waiter was helpful and gracious, waiting too many tables impacted her ability to be attentive and engaging. The food is consistently good but pricey. Unlike other restaurants, Bucks has not modified it's menu selections due to the pandemic.

Maggie Kash: I usually come to buck's since it's consistent and a nice spot for a pleasant dinner with friends. The food is fine, nothing to write home about, but pleasant enough. I have never thought the service to be lacking, but was shown out quite rudely by the staff when the restaurant was closed for a private event. Of course my friends and I were not intentionally crashing a private event. Put up a sign. I will take buck's off my list in the future.

CA PA: Food is okay but $5-$10 overpriced for the delivery. Skip the “caesar salad” which is romaine stems with dressing. Drinks are okay but uninspired. The ambiance is great, both inside and outside.

Soumeya B.: Lovely neighborhood joint with a Brooklyn vibe. Laid back, excellent food and interesting art. I had the steak, and the tomato salad, both were great. My companions had the burger, carrot dip and meatballs. The meatballs were too rubbery (over-ground) but everything else was great. The carrot cake was one of the best I have had as well.

Alyx Henry: I had the Impossible Burger which came with fries and ketchup and I added cheddar cheese to the burger. The burger looked and tasted so real but it was definitely all plant based. The french fries were amazing. Our waiter asked if we wanted any ketchup, mustard, or anything else. I asked for the mustard and it was Dijon, very delicious!

Matthew Henry: Wow! The French fries are to die for. The fish melts in your mouth. And the butternut squash soup is delicious. What a very unique place. Canoes in the ceiling, bread on the table, very good.

Anne Tax: My family went to this restaurant last night. The food was delicious. However the service was terrible. The waitress was rude and ungracious.

Justin Johnston: An adult male who I believe to be the manager tried to lure my young son(7yrs) to the bathroom away from our family by saying they had a bowl of candy in there and to come with him. I filed a complaint and police report with no response.

Savannah Morgan: Cute little mom and pop style place! Nice atmosphere, yummy food, good drinks and great service but a bit expensive for what you get which is why I gave it 4 stars. Overall I would recommend this place!

Oak Ridge Campground: what do users think?


Lotta Danielsson: One of the nicest campgrounds in the DC area. Sites are well maintained, as are the restroom and shower facilities, and the sites are fairly large and well separated. Loop C is best for privacy and tent camping, Loop B for groups, and Loop A for RVs and campers (no electric hookups). Campground is near several trails and has easy access to the bike paths. Note that you have to pay for park entrance separately from the camping reservation. It’s a bit of a drive to get to the campground from the park entrance, so work that into your schedule.

Mike Colie: Great secluded camping. No hookups but the restrooms are clean with very nice showers. All sites are paved, great tables and fire rings. Spacious sites.

Jessica Kirschner: Camped two nights at spot C03, Loop C which was very pleasant. Campsites to the left and right are close and there is no privacy but spot backs up to a field.

Eric (Briteidea08): Girlfriend and I stayed here this past weekend. Really nice place! Got there a little late. Setup quickly. Then foraged for kindling and wood.Apparently there’s a 7-11 down the road that sells wood. We didn’t find out unto the following morning. Mostly because the visitor center was closed.

John Kinch: Pretty decent campground. The bathrooms are pretty clean, and there's potable water. We never interacted with any park rangers which could be a positive or negative depending on who you ask

Team Link: The place is clean, well maintained, & affordable. There is no electricity or water at the sites, that doesn't have to be a problem if you are prepared. If you are in an RV, be aware of the size limits. The hiking is great, we've been several times without camping. The trails are marked pretty well, & they are maintained. There are trails that start at the campground.This was our first time camping & we enjoyed it. We did not see firewood for sale, but we brought our own. My only issue is there is little to no cell signal. It's very spotty at best. If you're using the NPS app , you'll need to download the map.

Samantha Carp: Went and explored today for the 1st time. There's soo many camp ground spots and some of Bs & Cs has pretty good size ones with some privacy. I do wish they had power that was a huge down fall for us because we need it to air up air mattresses ect. And I wish they had a playground, I know one of the other grounds has one but that's a drive down the road not really walking distance with kids. Also I checked out the bathrooms they were very clean but I didn't see showers but saw in the other reviews someone say there was one so it must have been in a different bathroom.

Chad Goyette: Excellent campground with clean bathrooms and showers.

Brittany B: This is a nice place to go camping if you don't want to go too far out, plenty of spots some trails and even a bathroom with hot showers. However they do not sell firewood on site or at the visitor center so make sure to stop at the 7-11 on your way in to grab some!

Bill Fekete: This is a very pretty campground with many nice campsites. It is designed for tents. We went with a small RV. Our bad. This campground is not set up for RVs. There is separate RV camping, however it is located outside the park itself. If we come back we will probably stay there. If you do come with a RV make sure it is small. Ours is 21 foot and we were able to find a site that worked. There is no water available to connect or fill so be sure your water tank is full before you arrive. There are 3 bathrooms. One has been upgraded with showers and is beautiful. The other 2 bathrooms are sort of dumpy, but functional. There are trails that start at the campground. Even though it was fairly full when we were there it is very quiet at night. No electricity or RVs so that is probably part of the reason. During the day you get to hear the constant target practice from Quantico but it is not too annoying. there is no firewood nor ice available and it is a pretty good drive back to town so prepare for that as well.

This is a very special place that puts their philosophy into action. I wish I'd had this type of supportive, positive sports education as a kiddo myself!

West Potomac Park: what do users think?


I SLAY ALL DAY TRAVEL The Solo Traveler: I’m born and raised in DC and never been to West Potomac Park. Glad I came here to participate in the activities. This was for the Something in the Water Gospel event. It was a pop up church service and free! I love my city DC. 🙏🏿❤️

John Thompson: Actually, I met several US Park Police officers when I was stopped for driving 31 mph in a 15 mph area. I often drive through the park to access 395. Officers were great and professional. I was polite and guilty. Still got a 100.00 ticket for not having registration and insurance card in vehicle. The best part is that they did not keep the THC gummy bears on the front seat.

Michael B: A really great spot for social and intramural sports, but it is kind of hard to navigate to. Be prepared to make your way through hoards of mall tourists and find limited cabi bike parking.

Mina F.: Amazing place. I don’t know why the world’s is getting worse. Why we don’t Lear about this people again

Michael Gast: Love this park. We did the lime scooters and had a blast. It is amazing to see all the monuments up close.

Patricia Zimath: The Cherry blossom blooming are amazing

Abhijit Ahir: Loved the scenery and the quiet here! Great if you run or do long walks everyday. A little far away from the hustle-bustle of the Capitol area but definitely worth it. Just park your car in this lush green park, take a stroll alongside the beautiful Potomac river, and breathe some clean, fresh air!

James Walker: Great views around the Tidal Basin, walk from Kutz Bridge at Independence Avenue see some older magnificent cherry trees. Continue down pass MLK Jr. Memorial and between Roosevelt Memorial for great panoramic views over to Jefferson Memorial. If you're careful, you can see all the way to the District Wharf Southwest.

Yadsendewodtitahw With Cheryl: Great event given by Pharrel Williams pop up church great success . Secure.. no biting mosquitos ect. Clean

Ryan Lemmer: Incredible spot to see the cherry blossoms. Well worth getting there early to get a spot. The area is safe and parking is reasonable.

United States National Arboretum: what do users think?


Eduardo Moser: We visited during cherry blossom days. They have a great variety of cherry trees and magnolias. It is a complement to know different cherry blossoms from those of the Tidal Basin. There is no proper public transportation, so the place is fairly free of tourists. We came to this place by car on the recommendation of a friend who lives in DC. The Bonsai collection is amazing. There is much to walk and explore. On a plain they have mounted the original columns of the Capitol. Bring some snacks and drinks, because there is no service in the place. Access and parking is free.

Laurie Zabala: Beautiful landscaping. Very tranquil & relaxing walk through the extensive herb garden. The Bonsai museum is a must. Great place for a picnic. The National columns are stunning. Entrance is free. Be sure to use the restroom at the visitor center when you first arrive because you'll do alot of walking & that's the only restroom on the grounds. Bring a water bottle & snacks as there is no restaurant on site. Definitely a treasure that's worth the trek to the east edge of DC.

Marty Shaw, Author, RCA, BCMA: Great experience! Just go! I was there in early spring and the colors were amazing. So many different specimens of plant material I never see commercially. They have an amazing assortment of unique things you won't find anywhere else. It was a real treat.

Da-Wang Wu: We came here in late April, and the Azalea blossoming was pretty amazing! Walking on the trail with the Azalea blossoming along the way was very nice. Parking inside the park can be tricky, so we parked in the lot right next to the entrance and walked 5-10 minutes to the main campus. Overall, it’s a beautiful place, and I would definitely come back.

CJ: Depending on when you visit the US National Arboretum, something different is peaking. In mid April, the fruit trees were just past peak, but the lilacs shrubs were close to full bloom. As I strolled thru the lilac grove, the soft lilac fragrance permeated the air. One of the US National Arboretum’s most prominent and a little puzzling landmarks is the old Corinthian National Capitol Columns residing on the Ellipse Meadow. The US National Arboretum was not the column’s intended home when they were quarried back in the early 1800s. Originally, the columns were built as a part of the east portico of the US Capitol Building now located about 3 miles away from the US National Arboretum. By the 1860s, when the dome of the Capitol was completed, the columns were deemed inadequate to support the new dome. It wouldn’t be until the mid 1980s before the columns would find their final home at the US National Arboretum. Twenty-two of the original 24 columns are on majestic display in Ellipse Meadow. During our trip to the US National Arboretum in mid April, the Azaleas were just starting to bud and bloom. So no good pictures this trip. Peak time for the Azalea garden at the arboretum is late April. I hear the Azaleas are a beautiful sight when the hillside is painted with splotches of different colors.

Omar Abu-sabha: It is a great place to walk and enjoy the area's vegetation. The Japanese and Chinese pavilions are very interesting, although they are closed in winter. The old columns of the capitol are without a doubt a must if you like photography.

Melissa B: Despite living in the DC area for over 30 years, I had never been here. What an oversight! The National Arboretum is beautiful and interesting. Everyone there, staff and visitors, were very friendly. I'll be bak again.

Karthikeyan Rajaram: Luck is when you run into a beautiful place like this without planning. Better luck is when you get into it in the company of a person who used to volunteer at this place. We didn’t really plan to be at the arboretum, considering that the Spring is still not Springy enough. We had seen enough of Cherry Blossoms in the Tidal basin area that we thought we could do something else. We just made it to this place on recommendation from one of our relatives, who also accompanied us. Since he was a volunteer here, he helped us navigate and gave us so much insights about the different kinds of plants, flowers, bonsais and the what the lovely people who work here, do. We drove around this place and still got to see more cherry blossoms, along with different other species of flora. The enchanting Bonsai museum is a must visit as it did take our breathes away. The old columns of the capitol and the grove of different state trees are some of the special features of this place. The flowers were not in full blossom and we definitely look forward to checking this place again in summer.

Logan Heilman: Visited for the Bonsai event they were having and had a blast. All the vendors were great and the museums bonsai and penjing exhibit was phenomenal. Will definitely be back.

Elisabeth “Beth” Ostrander: We only had about an hour and headed to the bonsai area. Wow! To see living gifts from Japan and China that were started and cared for since before the birth of our nation was truly outstanding. Befitting our National Arboretum! Will return to see more treasures!
