Need an east coast recommendation! Help!

Hi everyone. Fairly new to camping, bought a camper last year and would like to find a great secluded camping experience, so any forest or wooded camping that includes hookups would be great. I've used it a few times last year and everywhere we went it was like camping on top of others. I live near DC and would like it somewhere within 3 hours drive. Thanks ahead of time! Jimmy

Check out Virginia State parks. Not super secluded but some not right on top of each other with hook ups. Also check iut some regional parks. Natural Chimneys is one in my area. To get super secluded your chances of hook ups will probably be limited. HAPPY CAMPING

I'd second the State Park recommendation. We like being on the water and like Lake Ana and the James River State Parks.

Thanks. We like to hike and also be near water, but primarily have room and a great view. I don't have to have all three hookups but have a hybrid trailer that doesn't have a massive water tank so water and electric would be great. Any specific park recs would be great! Thanks for the feedback so far

I would recommend RVPARK REVIEWS. COM if you have not already checked them out. Also recreation.gov is another site to use; in fact you need this site to reserve camp sites on federal lands. Another area for camping sites are C.O.E. (core of engineering) parks.


I have included both links for your needs.


Federal recreation, camping and tour reservation information - Recreation.gov RV Park Reviews - Trusted Reviews of Campgrounds & RV Parks


I have used both of these sites for my needs and there are some wonderful C.O.E. parks within the three to four hours of you. Especially along the Blue Ridge Parkway.

RV Park Reviews.com is a great way to find good campgrounds. Here's a link to Virginia State Parks. Many of those campgrounds have at least water and electric hookups including the two I referenced above.

My favorite is Lake Moomaw. It is a longer haul but well worth it if you can stay 4 days or more you'll think your in Canada. I live in Fredericksburg, VA and it takes 4.5 hours.
