    Note that I-69 is actually in 7 states now, although discontinuous.

    The rest of the segments are so short that I may not do them unless I have time, and then may include them in a "shorter interstates" post.

    Public Campgrounds along I-86. There are two sections of this interstate. One is in Idaho, the other is in New York. Unless otherwise noted, all campgrounds are within 20 miles of the interstate, one way. Some campgrounds may be more obscure and therefore, not listed.

    Public Campgrounds along I-88, west to east. Located only in Illinois and New York. Unless otherwise noted, all campgrounds are within 20 miles one way of the freeway. Note that some campgrounds are only locally known.

    ........we have a LOT of long interstates in this country, and some of them seem to have no rhyme or reason to how they got named, though for the most part they follow the designated guidelines....and then we have really short ones.

    Finishing this up will be listings of a few shorter interstates -- the ones that have possibilities for camping, that is. If an interstate is only 50 miles or less, it probably isn't included. This post will include shorter interstates in the Eastern portion of the US.

    Public Campgrounds along the shorter interstates: I-68 (MD), I-89 (VT), I-78 (PA to NJ) and I-83(MD/PA). Unless otherwise noted, all campgrounds are within 20 miles of the interstate, one way. Some campgrounds may exist that are not listed, inquire locally.

    I-68: WV/MD:

    Coopers Rock State Forest, Bruceton Mills, WV
    New Germany State Park, Grantsville, MD
    Rocky Gap State Park, MD

    I-89: VT:

    Quechee State Park, Hartford
    Silver Lake State Park, Barnard
    Gifford Woods State Park, Killington
    Note: About 25 miles from the interstate.
    New Discovery State Park, Marshfield
    Little River State Park, Waterbury
    Smugglers Notch State Park, Stowe
    Note: Many of the sites at this park are walk-in and not accessible by vehicle.
    Grand Isle State Park, Grand Isle
    Lake Carni State Park, Enosburg Falls

    I-78:

    PA:

    Tuscarora State Park, Barnesville
    Note: About 25 miles one way.

    NJ:

    Spruce Run State Recreation Area, Hampton
    Voorhees State Park, Clinton

    I-83:PA

    Codorus State Park, Hanover
    Gifford Pinchot State Park, Rossville

    Still to come, short interstates in the midwest (I-43, I-96, I-69 in KY) and in the west (I-82). Then we're done.
