If you like to camp, chances are camping in the fall is one of your favorites. While camping in the summer can be tons of fun, it's often to hot to sleep well. Camping in the spring is cooler, but the crisp fall air, campfires at night and the many colors of the leaves turning are some of the great allures of camping!

We've put together a list of local destinations that offer all types of camping experiences to enjoy:

Camping MD National Park - Camping at Assateague will be a pleasant experience if you plan ahead! The barrier island habitat can be harsh if you are not prepared.
