Awesome campout trip

We decided to have a guys weekend so my uncle, cousin, and I decided to head out to Rappahannock. We had an awesome sized campsite (I believe it was #9), and we had a blast.

Gettysburg Getaway

Very fun family friendly getaway for the weekend. Close to Gettysburg Battleground.

Hunting Island

My family and I have camped at this campground for over 20 years. Every summer we would rv camp for a week or two. I have camped on at least 30 sites. A couple of years ago, hurricanes decimated the island and local rangers and staff have done wonders to renovate the campground. Many campsites and parts of roads got wiped away with the hurricane but what is still left is my version of paradise. This has been and will probably continue to be my favorite campground. Bugs are bad and will pick you up and carry you off. Deer and racoons are friendly and will approach campsites. The camp store and bathhouses are nice and frequently updated.

Camping in the Catoctins

My wife and I decided one Saturday morning and came across Owens Creek online. They had reservations available and I jumped on the chance and reserved a spot. Forty-five minutes later, my wife and I packed the car and grabbed the dog and headed out the door. An hour and a half later we were in the mountains and pulling up to a very pretty campground. We quickly found our spot and set up camp. After setting up camp, we went for a walk along the creek and played in the water. We had a great trip. The campsites were spread out enough to give each site its privacy yet not separated too far. I would thoroughly recommend this campground to anyone who has the chance and we look forward to the chance to go back.
