    DW and I thought it would be a lot of fun to find a camper-friendly bluegrass or other folk music festival in the mid-Atlantic where we could camp onsite or close enough that we don't have to drive to attend. I've found a few online, but wanted to know if anyone has any recommendations in MD, DE, PA, WV or VA.

    I know that you have asked about places near you. I do not know the answer in your area.

    In Keystone Heights is ...http://www.floridastateparks.org/mikeroess/ and 22 minutes away in
    Melrose is The Pickin House ( Lake Rosa Lane ). A little Road Trip will make this possible.

    They ( The Pickin House ) are free to all the second Saturday of each month.

    Laurel Hill State Park , SW PA, has a blugrass festival in August. Search for " Friends of Laurel Hill" . If interested make reservations now......the pet sections electric sites usually sell out and this year they are renovating a group of sites so they are not available. The festival is free.

    Spring Gulch Folk Fest in New Holland Pa and the one and only Philly Folk Fest. Spring Gulch is a nice weekend at a family campground. Philly Folk Fest is not for the faint of heart.
