7 Perfect Camping Spots In The Mid-Atlantic

BY Jenn Greene TIMEJuly 13, 2022 PRINT

Camping in the mid-atlantic offers a multitude of ways to enjoy the great outdoors. From tent sites and RV parks to luxurious yurts and rustic-yet-air-conditioned cabins, several of the Mid-Atlantic states have all your camping (and glamping) needs covered.


Quaint Villages
Delaware’s Quaint Villages are home to some of the best year-round “off-the-beaten path” camping locations in Kent County. Camp under the stars at Smyrna’s Blackbird State Forest or at Felton’s Killens Pond State Park. Both offer birding, outdoor activities, and more. Or head to family owned G&R Campground located in Houston.


Hagerstown – Washington County
The Treehouse Camp at Maple Tree Campground has 20 wooded acres backing up to the Appalachian Trail on South Mountain, providing a peaceful escape and relaxing atmosphere for your next outdoor adventure. Enjoy a unique camping experience at rustic tent sites, tree houses, tree cottages or the new Hobbit House.

Harford County
Come see beautiful, preserved open space where nature, untouched, can be enjoyed by all. Go RV-camping on the Bush River at Bar Harbor RV Park where amenities include a swimming pool, a gift/grocery store, and a playground. For a more primitive adventure, rent a camper cabin at Susquehanna State Park.

Wicomico County
Camp by the water in Wicomico County. Bring your tent or RV to Roaring Point Waterfront Campground in Nanticoke or Sandy Hill Family Camp in Quantico, which are both along the Nanticoke River. Woodlawn Campground in Delmar is another local place to camp.


Potter County-Tioga County
Camp under the darkest skies on the East Coast at Allegheny River Campground in untamed, untouched, and unspoiled Potter County. The river offers great fishing and tubing opportunities. Drive Historic Route 6 for a visit to “Pennsylvania’s Grand Canyon.” You just might catch a glimpse of a wild elk herd!

Lancaster County
Among Lancaster’s many overnight options, a visitor favorite is the open-air fun of our many campgrounds. There’s nothing more natural than a restful stay in a tent, RV, or cabin at one of these well-maintained properties like Lake-in-Wood Camping Resort in Narvon or Yogi Bear’s Jellystone Park in Quarryville.


Charlottesville and Albemarle County
Located a short and scenic drive from downtown Charlottesville, Shenandoah Crossing offers up some of the most glamorous camping options around in luxurious yurts. The yurts are large, round canvas tents with central heat and air, flat-screen TVs, kitchens, bathrooms, and bedrooms, for the ultimate Central Virginia glamping experience!

Another place we love to camp in the mid-atlantic is Gettysburg, PA. It offers everything from tents to cabins and the historic backdrop makes for a fun and educational trip. Drummer Boy Campground offers theme weekends that are sure to be a hit with the family.
