COLLEGE PARK, Maryland - Not everyone booked a five-star hotel for this week’s inauguration events.
Visitors flocked to the Cherry Hill Park campground in College Park, where assistant general manager Chris Lim says there’s a bipartisan crowd: about 200 parties of Trump supporters, including Bikers for Trump and 50 groups here for the Women’s March on Washington are settling in.
The campground can accommodate up to 400 groups and features a dog run, cabins, laundry facilities and more. RVs dotted the park, some of them decked out with American flags and large signs, including Trump posters and placards.
