The terrain of the Eastern seaboard offers sights that are as diverse as its people, food, and culture. From the rugged coast of Acadia National Park in Maine to the crystal blue waters of Florida, here are some of the most beloved and unexpected camping options along the colorful Atlantic…
Anastasia State Park, Florida
Just a short drive from downtown St. Augustine, the nation’s oldest city, Anastasia State Park boasts direct, private beach access on a lively park. Most sites on the large campground are tucked away behind heavy foliage, which allows for privacy, as well as some much-needed protection from that hot Florida sun.
Oceanside, Assateague National Seashore, Delaware
Best known for its packs of roaming, wild horses, this beachside gem provides well-maintained facilities on a calm shoreline that is great for summertime swimming. Though this campground is the priciest choice on our list, most visitors think that the unique camping experience makes the extra expense well worth it.
Myles Standish State Forest, Massachusetts
It’s hard to believe that this peaceful campground is just miles outside of bustling Cape Cod. Myles Standish State Forest boasts a large range of hiking trails, as well as Barrett Pond, which is a must for those who want a clear water fishing adventure. For an even more memorable camping experience, take advantage of the nearby stables for some picturesque, forested horseback riding.
