Camping near Washington DC

I'm planning our summer vacation, and we're looking at camping near the DC area in late June. Any campground recommendations?

Anybody know anything about Duncan's Family campground?

We're looking for the following:

Large family friendly (we have 8!)

Thanks in advance for any advise you can give!

Cherry hill park I think great campground pool grill will not need a car while there bus picks at park on regular schedule will carry you to college park to catch metro that will carry you anywhere you want to go in and around dc area lot of free things to also tickets for bus can be bought at campground or at the bus stop in campground get back on bus at metro where you got off we loved it there stayed there twice one in front royal once

X 2 on Cherry Hill Park, but book early, they tend to fill up in the summer.

Another thumbs up for Cherry Hill. Family friendly, large pool area, good coffee and sandwich shop, large well stocked camping store. Closest one to DC area, with buses to take you to the metro for easy access to DC.
Food/grocery store/shopping center a mile up the road.

Duncan's would probably be the least expensive but not the best choice for ratings or distance from DC

My parents and two other couples with Motorhomes stayed there a couple of years ago and they didn't have enough good things to say about Cherry Hill Park. I'm glad to hear it from others as well because I recently booked a spot there for the week of June 12-18. Looking forward to seeing the sights of DC.

Capital KOA much better than Cherry Hill. Stayed at Cherry Hill my last Trip to DC, the park was a ghost town but yet they still packed the few trailers that were there right on top of each other. The private tour bus was very unreliable. The KOA is in a much better area than Cherry Hill.
