Where can I go camping within 2 hours of Washington, DC?
I grew up here and know all of the urban areas extremely well, but my family was not at all the camping sort. Some friends want to go camping somewhere relatively close by and I’m not sure what a good place to go.
I’m not looking for one of those cheesy developed campground “resorts,” (the kind with cabins and showers and tennis courts and pools) but more of a traditional “roughing it” campground near water, be it a lake or stream/river for swimming or maybe tubing.
So far all I’ve really come up with is Harper’s Ferry.
Any better suggestions?
