Know any good campgrounds in the Virginia mountains?

My 14 year old son and I want to get away to the mountains of VA and do some camping. What are some good campgrounds to serve as a base of operations for 2 or 3 days of hiking and fishing over Labor Day weekend? I'm looking for options close to day hike loop trails in the Shenandoah mountains. We're not rookie campers, however real life has cut our camping opportunities back severely the last couple of years. I don't have the equipment for overnighting from a backpack, so we'll be car camping.

Camping and traveling to Colorado.

Tx to Colorado trip/camping/firearm/bear filter: I am taking my wife and child tent camping in Aspen, CO. I have a few questions that i need some answers to. 1. Can i travel with a firearm(Pistol) in my car for the trip? Not 100% on our route yet but i will be going thru Tx, OK, and Co..Maybe Kansas but not sure yet. 2. Can i bring the firearm to the campsite (Difficult Campground-Near Aspen)? Cant find any documentation on this thats why im asking. 3. Are black bears and mountain lions a big threat in Colorado? Ive heard there are all over near Aspen. What caliber pistol would be effective against a black bear but easy enough to take on this trip? Thanks....And any other tips about camping in the Rockies would be appreciated.

Cape Cod rental

I am looking for a good place to go camping for a long weekend in August on Cape Cod. It could also be a rental cottage but by tradition we go camping so a campground is preferable. It's a memorial of sorts and there is a high chance of drinking and toasting till the wee hours... There are about 6 of us and we're looking for something that allows for a little privacy. I would prefer to be near Provincetown, if possible. Any suggestions?
