The Boston Harbor Islands
You’ll likely need to pack some marine coolers before you head out to this campsite, a collection of islands located just outside the capital of Massachusetts. But while you will need to take a ferry to get there, the campground is worth the trip: featuring a Civil War-era fort and the nation’s oldest lighthouse, the islands are best known today as the place where Martin Scorsese shot “Shutter Island”. Campers can enjoy old-school camping in tents without showers and electricity as they take advantage of the islands’ hiking trails and excellent kayaking conditions, or you can rent a yurt with electricity and access to fresh water and a bathroom. Prices range from $55.65 to $59.65 a night with ferry tickets.
Rock Island State Park
This Tennessee nature site offers tent, RV and cabin camping, but its best known for its gorgeous landscapes, from the Great Falls Gorge to the Twin Falls. As a result, the park offers great canoeing, fishing and even cliff jumping, if you dare. If you don’t feel like living out of the cooler all week, every cabin in the park comes with basic kitchen appliances, including a microwave and a refrigerator, as well as a television. Prices range from $40 to $135 per night.
Enota Mountain Retreat
Located in Hiawassee, GA between the state’s highest mountains, the nonprofit conservation resort offers tent, RV, and cabin camping, as well as a motel. But don’t worry, this place is still great for camping: featuring beautiful streams, waterfalls and trout ponds, it also has an organic farm where families can help feed the animals and harvest vegetables. Prices range from $25 to $135 a night.
