If you are looking for a primitive camping experience, the Hilton Area at Patapsco State Park, in Catonsville, has several tent sites, as well as a few cabins available for rent. The park is less than a 25-minute drive from Reisterstown, yet seems like you are in a remote, natural area. There is a wonderful trail to explore at the campground called Sawmill Branch Trail, which allows you to hop across some huge rocks across the Saw Mill Branch Stream. It will not only bring out a sense of adventure, but will allow you to enjoy a gorgeous body of water. If you have children, there is a large playground created from recycled tires that is an awesome place for them to explore. There are also grills to use at some of the outdoor pavilions near the campsites. For more information, visit http://dnr2.maryland.gov/publiclands/Pages/central/patapscohilton.aspx.
