Cherry Hill Park in College Park, Md., is probably one of the greenest campgrounds in the country, having made substantial investments in solar panels for water heating and power generation.

But two years ago, a visitor from the University of Delaware opened park owner Mike Gurevich’s eyes to yet another way his park can support the environment:

“This guy knocked on the door and said, ‘Can I charge my car?’ I said, ‘Absolutely.’”

Using a campground’s 50-amp/240 volt electric hookups, most electric vehicle owners can charge their cars in about four hours.

So what do people do when they’re waiting at Cherry Hill Park for their vehicles to recharge?

“They just hang out,” Gurevich explained in a news release. “Some sit at our picnic tables and work on their computers, using our Wi-Fi system. Others eat lunch at our café.”

Edeitor’s Note: This story  tells of a trend that actually started over ten years ago when Fran and I called Travelhome Park in Yuba City Ca our home base.  An electric car owner made an annual trip from the San Francisco bay area to Lake Almanor, CA. Yuba City was a halfway mark between the two and he would stop each direction to recharge his electric car.
