We asked Carol Cambo, co-author of New England Camping (Avalon; $21.95), to choose the five best camping spots to pitch your tent or park your RV in New England.

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.

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
