The Washington D.C. area is a popular stop on road trips, but finding somewhere to camp or to park an RV can be a challenge. Here are a few locations where you can find parking or a place to stay.
Cherry Hill Park
Open year round, this site features wifi, full RV hookups, and other onsite amenities. There are options for getting into the city from the area, including the nearby Metro station at College Park, which is about a ten minute drive away.
Union Station’s Oversized Parking Lot
Navigating the city in an RV is not advised. However, if you are comfortable with urban driving in a large vehicle, you can find parking at Union Station’s oversized parking lot. It is centrally located and you have access to the downtown by foot or bus, Metro, Amtrak and more.
Ten miles outside of DC, you’ll find this little oasis of green. Good for smaller RVs and trailers, there are trails for hiking, showers, campfire rings, and more.
Bull Run Regional Park
It’s generous to say this is close to the city, but there’s so much to do. There’s even a water park. There are full service RV hookups, too. You’re also not far from the Udvar-Hazy Center, part of the Smithsonian Air & Space Museum, as well as Manassas Battlefield. The closest Metro station is Vienna/Fairfax, where the Orange Line will take you right to the heart of downtown D.C.
Fort Belvoir Travel Camp
If you are Active Duty, Retired Military, a Reservist, National Guard, DoD Civilian, Installation Contractor and/or listed in AR215-1, paragraph 7-1 you are eligible to camp at the Fort Belvoir Travel Camp, just outside of Alexandria, VA, and not too far from Washington D.C.
