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
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

Clarksburg State Park
Clarksburg, MA
Plunked in the middle of an unspoiled northern hardwood forest with views of the Hoosac Range, Mount Greylock, and the Green Mountains are 45 sites near Mauserts Pond, offering fishing, hiking, and bird watching. Open through Oct. 12.

Oak Embers
West Greenwich, RI
Get your foliage fix on horseback. This family campground is adjacent to Arcadia Management Area, crisscrossed with riding trails, and across from Stepping Stone Ranch and its trusted steeds. Open through Oct. 31.

    I am planing a summer and fall RV trip to the New England states and have not found a Best RV Campground site for the New England atates in all 8 pages of the Best sites in the 6 New England states. This would be a good site to have about campgrounds with all of the RVers that come to these states for the fall foliage and things to do in the summer when we get out of the heat down south. Just a suggestion. I did find many of your Best of Sites very helpfull. Would also like a link where I could get all 6 of the official state road maps, an atlas is nice but is not detailed enough when planing an extended trip having never been some place before. I use Google maps but like to have paper maps also.
