Definitely recommend Shenandoah if you're looking to get out of DC without having to go too far. Easy to get a first-come, first-served campsite ($17/night) at Big Meadows, but back country camping is available as well, and a number of the shorter hiking trails intersect with the Appalachian Trail. As a heads up, you have to collect firewood on-site (can't bring it in) due to a pest problem traced back to transported firewood. There's plenty around though. Also, lots of animals to see (e.g., bears, coyotes, deer, hawks...). Fishing is allowed and especially encouraged of invasive trout species. Lots of good roads for biking as well.
