Families should call ahead to make sure the park they want to go to takes reservations. Many do, but some, such as Cape Henlopen in Delaware, do not. Campground fees vary widely from park to park and depend on the kind of facility families want to use. For so-called "primitive" camping, which often is just a bare site for pitching a tent, the fees usually are only a few dollars.


Some phone numbers for popular family campsites in the area include:

• Deep Creek Lake State Park, 301/387-5563 or 301/387-4111

• Herrington Manor /Swallow Falls State Park in Garrett County, Md., 301/334-9180
