We asked Carol Cambo, co-author of New England Camping (Avalon; $21.95), to choose the five best places to pitch your tent or park your RV during the height of autumn color.

Little Moose Management Unit
Greenville Junction, ME
Backcountry hikers in the mood to rough it may choose from a handful of primitive sites on Big Moose Pond. The rewards: miles of trails with views of Little Moose Mountain. Open all year.
207-778-8231

Mount Philo State Park
Charlotte, VT
If you prefer certain amenities to complement sweeping views of Lake Champlain, choose one of 10 mountaintop sites. Most rigs can tow a small RV up the steep slope. Open through Oct. 12.

Lost River Valley Campground
North Woodstock, NH
Two rivers run through it, so car and tent sites sit by the rushing water. Kids love wriggling their way through Lost River Gorge and Boulder Caves across the road. Open through Oct. 12.
800-370-5678, 603-745-8321
