We would like to stay at Fort Meade and have read on other sites there is a shuttle to the Mall in DC. Does anyone know if this is correct? We don't want to tow a vehicle & aren't sure about the distance to the Metro

I am not sure about Fort Meade having a shuttle, however, Cherry Hill Park is one of only a few campgrounds in the DC area. It will cost more than Meade, but there is Metro bus from the campground to the Metro station which is only a couple of miles away. The Metro station has a huge parking area if you wanted to drive your toad to the station. On the Metro you can get within walking distance of most of the tourist locations in downtown DC.

I enjoy the Camp Meade campground but if I were going to downtown DC, I would opt for Cherry Hill Park.

I'm a "local".. live on the Orange line..

Ft Mead.. per Google the CG is 2.3 miles from the MARC (Maryland Area Regional Commuter)(Penn Line) Odenton Station..

Quantico has a VRE (Virginia Railway Express) on station.

I know that the VRE from Quantico works, a fellow retiree used it last summer..

We have stayed at Ft. Meade twice now as a convenient place to tour DC. The parking at Odenton Station was enlarged on our last visit. You used to have to go early and park at the fire station and then walk to the station. No more. They now have a huge lot and it was never full during our last visit.
Considering the price of Cherry Hill, I would opt for the convenience of Ft. Meade. The drive takes all of five minutes and you can buy your train tickets in advance.
