The Best in Tent Camping: Maryland, 2nd edition
Your Car-Camping Guide to Scenic Beauty, the Sounds of Nature, and an Escape from Civilization
Called “America in Miniature” by National Geographic editor Gilbert Grosvenor, Maryland packs an extraordinary amount of natural diversity into a relatively small area. With the Atlantic Ocean in the east, Allegheny Mountains in the west, and the country’s largest estuary—the Chesapeake Bay—splitting the state down the middle, any outdoors enthusiast finds a happy home in Maryland.
It’s not at all surprising, then, that this natural legacy and diversity extends to the campgrounds: Federal parks, state parks, and forests; US Army Corps of Engineers’ recreation areas; county parks; and private campgrounds make up a patchwork of exciting prospects for every level of camping enthusiast.
Splitting the state into three distinct geographical regions—Western Maryland, Central Maryland, and Southern Maryland/Eastern Shore—
Best Tent Camping: Maryland
, by local outdoorsman and writer Evan Balkan, will guide campers to 50 of the best campgrounds the state has to offer. Within these 50 profiles are campgrounds with every imaginable facility, as well as primitive campsites far from population centers and everything in between. For car camping in Maryland, this is an indispensable guide.
