Boondocking in the Maryland/Virginia area

After our maiden voyage to a park with hookups, we are looking for a place off the grid in the mid-Atlantic area. Any recommendations?

The Delaware Water Gap National Recreation Area northeast of Stroudsburg, PA, is really lovely...not terribly remote, but beautiful and hospitable.

The Eastern part of West Virginia is in the middle of nowhere and US 48 is almost complete from Davis to Strasburg. Are you looking for no hookups or dispersed camping? If the former, perhaps one of the National/State Forests or a State Park in WV. For true boondocking, I've seen people with popup and truck trailers camped off the forest roads miles from nowhere, but I sure wouldn't take our trailer on them.

Put the Allstays app. on your phone. You can filter places from Public Lands to the Moose clubs and Forests.

Or look at freecampsites.net. Again you can filter down as far as you want to.

Maryland or Virginia?

Just know this.

Virginia is for lovers.
Maryland is for crabs.

Assateague National Seashore is great in the off season.

Go to Big Meadows in the Shenandoah National Park. It is "primitive" camping at its finest. The Appalachian Trail runs almost thru the park. Lots of spur trails to hike. Most sites are reserved but also have some available for overnighters. On the Skyline Drive in the Blue Ridge Mountains of Virginia.

I agree with Grey Goose, further south on the Skyline Drive (which is in the Shenandoah National Park) is Loft Mountain Campground. Loft Mountain has larger sites than Big Meadows both are beautiful. If you stay at Big Meadows there is a lodge where you can eat. Loft Mountain has a wayside cafe. I don't think that you can make reservations at Loft Mountain it's first come. During the peak leaf season it will probably be difficult to get a site.

Definitely get the All Stays App and filter to look at National Forest Campgrounds and National Park Campgrounds. Also some COE Campgrounds have some great no hookup sites.

Our favorite COE Campground is North Bend Park on Kerr Lake.

You might try Greenbelt Park on the beltway.

Our favorite local one is Sherando Lake (site A30).

There is really quite a variety of sites available. You can also expand to consider State Forest CG and County/City campgrounds.
