Cherry Hill Park Celebrates 100 Years of Tenting | Southern Maryland Information Web


The campsite outside of Washington, DC has been a family business since 1921

This year, Cherry Hill Park, a premier campground in the Washington, DC area, celebrates 100 years of camping and 5 generations of family ownership with specials, activities, events, gifts and more.

In 1921 Jacob & Rose Gurevich founded Cherry Hill Poultry Farm, where the family’s first campers pitched tents behind the farm’s general store and pumped well water. The business has evolved over time. After the Second World War, GIs were housed in makeshift accommodation and, as the motorway system grew, they became tourism-oriented. The campsite is currently owned by Mike Gurevich, Jacob’s great-grandson, and his wife Linda. Your children are involved in the management and interested in continuing the family business in the 5th generation.

“You learn a lot at a campsite,” says Mike Gurevich. “Today we are sticking to the values ​​we have always had – good hospitality and friendly service do not go out of style. We pride ourselves on providing the best camping and tourism experience in the region to every guest who visits us. “

All year round in 2021, Cherry Hill Park celebrates its anniversary with:
• Special offers: The campsite has special offers all year round, and some lucky guests receive surprise gifts.
• Time capsule: This fall, the park will bury a time capsule with contributions from guests and staff that will capture the essence of camping in 2021.
• Retro toys: You can play with wooden panels, yo-yo, jacks, and other toys from the 1920s.
• Selfie Station: A selfie station offers guests the opportunity to win free stays through a photo competition.
