The starting point is not too far from Washington-Arlington-Alexandria, as you can see on the road map further down. And of course, there are campgrounds nearby. If you've been whitewater rafting

nature are great reasons to come. Lodging is available near the river, but you'd better reserve in advance because these hotels fill up quick.
