Our story

 4 generations of our family

Cherry Hill Park is a family-owned and operated campground that has been in the Gurevich family for 5 generations. We've grown from a modest farm and general store into the premier camping destination for travelers visiting the Washington, DC, area. We love hosting guests from all across America, from all over the world, and from just down the road in our home state of Maryland.

Our story begins back in 1921, when Jacob and Rose Gurevich allowed customers to set up camp behind the small general store on the edge of Cherry Hill Poultry Farm.

After World War II, we underwent our first major transition, becoming Cherry Hill Mobile Home Village. We housed many GIs in response to the nation-wide housing crisis of the post-war era.

As the interstate highway system grew, Americans began to travel for leisure, and many needed a place to stay while visiting Washington, DC. Cherry Hill Campcity was born, and we became a business that catered to travelers and tourists for the first time.

In the 1980s, Rose and Jacob's grandson Norman Gurevich had a vision for a new kind of campground: a top-tier destination park that offered premium amenities, extensive services, full hook-ups, and room for even the biggest RVs. We built Cherry Hill Park from scratch, moving one mile down the road from our original location.

2 generations later, we've officially settled into our new location, and we are still focused on continuing to grow and change to accommodate the needs of our guests. In 2015, we completed another major renovation, adding a splash park, premium log cabins, 18-hole mini golf, a new bathhouse, a gym, an outdoor pavilion, new laundry facilities, and group tenting sites.

Through all of the changes, we've stayed rooted in the same values we held as a family of farmers. We're proud to work hard and to put smiles on the faces of those we serve. We focus each day on providing our guests with the best hospitality and tourism options that Washington, DC, has to offer.
