    No need to stealth camp, there are plenty of great shelter sites around. My current favorite is Rocky Run. Two shelters and a sweet swing-chair all down in a beautiful hollow. It feels remote, despite being only a couple hundred yards from some houses over the ridge. There's also a great day hike up to White Rock, which has a great view SE. On a clear day you can see well into VA. It's a mile South from Reno Monument Road, or 4.5 miles North from Gathland state park. If you go out there on a weekend night and see a hammock it's likely me.

    I'd love to do something like that on the AT. I've been considering hauling my Weber into the above mentioned site for a while to spend the day hanging and smoking (pork of course!)

    I live in Germantown, MD and get out on the AT a bunch of times each year.

    MAHAA and Mt. Rogers are two great hangs that are not terribly far away.

    Additionally, I may be going to the NJ hang at the end of the month. If you want to carpool togethor just let me know.

    Another Eastern Shore!

    +1 on Rocky Run shelter: it's my favorite.

    If you want someone to camp with outside of the trips here, check out Meetup.com . There are lots of nearby camping/ hiking/ backpacking groups. I am a member and hike leader of DC Backpackers Meetup and they have lots of trips to WV, VA, MD, PA.

    Kensington, MD here.

    +100 on Rocky Run - simply awesome. My other favorite site is Pogo Campground on the other side of the I-70 footbridge.

    MAHA

    Mid Atlantic Hangers Association.

    Its a free membership all you have to do is show up . MAHA happens twice a year. Once in the Spring at Pine Grove Forest St. Park and one in the Fall. In previous years the Fall MAHA was at Gathland St. Park but we have out grown the site and are currently looking for a new one. You can find the MAHA planning threads in the Trip Planning section of the forum. Hope this helps.
    Sometimes I like to hike and think, And sometimes I just like to hike.

    Hiking is'ent about waiting for the storm to pass its about learning to hike in the rain.
