RE: South Jersey to Cape Cod

Keep in mind that "Cape Cod" KOA is not on Cape Cod, but a 25 minute drive away. If you plan on visiting the Cape do not attempt that drive Friday afternoon/evening or Saturday morning or leave the Cape on Sunday afternoon/evening. Backups of 5 - 10 miles (seriously) are common. Thanks, I am aware of that we are trying to do a few different areas in Mass and RI and this worked distance and time wise. We would be leaving early Sunday morning to head home, so I think we will be alright. Thanks all for your responses time to recheck the maps. hate to tell you, but all have the same idea..and if it's raining or cloudy, they all leave earlier..listen to the Teacher.....years back,and it hasn't gotten musc better ,same roads, it took us 5 hrs from Hyannis to the Canal.....C

RE: Route from Maine to Gatlinburg? Least traffic?

You can pick up I-84 off the Mass Pike (I-90) and connect with I-81 south. It's rough road and construction areas between Scranton and Harrisburg. We like to cut down US209 through the Delaware Water Gap and connect to I-80 to I-81. Avoid I-95 through New York. No reason to go that way because you're headed for I-81 anyway. if you decide to go this way.....get off 84 at exit 53 in Pa which is the first exit off 84 after you cross the Deleware river from NY state and follow 209 to Milford then thru the nat'l forest...nice ride with pulloffs for lunch or whatever...then take I-80 from exit 309 tand get off exit 302 taking Pa rt 33 to Pa rt 22 to I-78 to I-81 and on down.... Now at exit 53 which is Matamoras,Pa there is a year round campground called Tri-State Campground...which they have expanded in the last year,and is big and wide open...C

RE: South Jersey to Cape Cod

40ft Class A DP. Trying to find the best way to Boston/Cape Cod KOA in Middleborough MA. Do not want to go over the George Washington Bridge. I will be travelling on Sunday both ways, so the toll on the Tappen Zee is considered off peak $10.00 not too bad. I was thinking NJ Turnpike to exit 10 to RT 287 over the Tappen Zee and back on 95 for the rest of the trip. Not sure about the Connecticut traffic on Sunday. Suggestions appreciated. Thanks in advance. I would go over the Tap..then up 684 to 84..take 84 to 90 in Sturbridge to 90 to 495 straight onto the Cape...I'm sure its longer but I would think less traffic....C

RE: Need Overnight stop I77 Southbound south of Charlotte

South of the Border has a nice campground with full hook ups and pull through sites. It's right next to I-95.Here's a review from campground reviews:This was our second stop at Pedro's Campground, and I have to admit that I was glad we stopped on our way to Pennsylvania from Hilton Head Island. I am normally a light sleeper, but I hardly heard any traffic noise from I-95 and had a good nights rest. The pull-through site was extra large, the utilities were good, and the entire campground was clean and neat. I would bet that only 10% of the sites were occupied on a Friday night which made it even nicer. I would definitely stop here again. We camped at South of the Border in a Travel Trailer.It's $29 a night for full hookups. They also have a restaurant and gas station. It is a great spot but probably 4 hrs away from where he wants to stop...C

RE: Georgia to Maine

Hello fellow travelers and photographers Once again I am hear seeking your knowledge, experience and tips for a relatively short adventure (3 weeks) - round trip taking different routes heading to explore Maine from Georgia. Driving thru the southern states quickly to explore more of PA, NY, VT MOSTLY MAINE, NH, MA, CT and back down south again. Hoping to explore lakes in Maine from the northern most stop on the trip and back down coastal regions looking to see how we like it there in mid-late Summer. I use Furkot to plan our trips and Trip Advisor, Campendium, and here to get reviews. We travel with dogs and like privacy and views. Photography, quaint towns, local cuisine and history a plus. We are in a 41' Class A DP so always looking out for easiest approach and plenty of space. Looking forward to reading what you have to say as you guys have never steered me wrong (pun intended). Thank you in advance, Lynn It's hard to plan your entire trip ,not knowing exactly where you want to go Pa.....ya have Gettysburg,the Pa Dutch country and Metro Philly and all it's history Maine....probably Kitteybukport and the Bush compound,Arcadia park....Boothbay Harbor,Red's Eate in Wiscassett Ct...Mystic Seaport NH...Portsmith Harbor,Quaint NE seaport, north Conway area And these are just a few,I'm sure more people will jump in...Chuck

RE: Northeast campground

Hi All, Due to a schedule change we are just now trying to make a camping reservation for mid-August. We are in Connecticut and we have a week off. We have a hybrid and, ideally, we'd like to find a place with full hookups, a pool, wifi, cable. We're fine with a pump out service if need be, but we don't want to deal with breaking down to dump the black and grey. Yes, I know we'll be lucky to find anything so far into the season. We started looking in the Finger Lakes area, but have not found the combination we're for. The Watkins Glen KOA would be good, but no vacancies. Any ideas? Vermont might be an idea. Or Pennsylvania. We like natural areas to explore, and local bike trails are good too. Thanks in advance for any suggestions. Trying to pick through every campground is getting old fast. Can try Wassamki Springs in Scarbough,Maine not a bad ride and nice area OR I like the Pa Dutch...and would try New Holland-Lancaster KOA in New Holland or Beacon Hill in Intercourse,Pa..my is choice but no kids and then there is Country Haven .....Chuck

RE: Campground on way to disney

I stopped for the night at This One about six weeks ago. They have plenty or pull through sites and I didn't even unhook my 5'er. Check their web site and take a look at how they handle their one night campers. Pretty unique and worked well. If you need to leave earlier than the camper in front of you, pull to right right and drive on out. This is what I did and zero issues - Very Easy. They are south of Lake City on I-75 at exit #399. that's a long way to go from 95 for a overnight stop...don't ya think ?????? chuck

RE: Campground on way to disney

I will be going to ft wilderness in August. Just looking for options for a nice overnight stop either in southern ga or northern fl off of 95 thanks. Great park is at x-1 in Ga ,just before going into Florida....called Country Oaks....call ahead reserve a pull thru ... that exit has about 3 gas stations and 2 truck stops for cheaper fuel before Florida...and then maybe 2 hours to The Mouse....Chuck

RE: Route 84 in Connecticut

Traveling on 84 from Danbury to Mass Pike, do I stay on 84 thru Hartford or go 691-91-84. Traveling with 37' FW. It will be mid morning on a weekday, after rush hour. Thanks Can do either way...the 691 to 91 to 84.....has a steep pull up Southington hill from the entrance onto 91 and then the traffic and the exit from 91 to 84 can be backed up anytime during the day...I find taking 84 straight thru is shorter in miles and in duration and also less aggrevating....but again I lived in Conn all my life...Chuck

RE: Ocean Lakes Family Campground - HOLY GOLF CARTS!!!!!!

Currently staying at OLFC in Myrtle Beach. Before we came here we read that it was a big place, and can get very crowded, but I didn't realize the golf cart population would outnumber the people! I attempted to go to the laundry facility in my pickup on Saturday to wash some bedding that got soiled due to a sick child, it took me 30 minutes to go less than half a mile just to find a parking lot full of golf carts, I was not happy. I understand why the golf carts are so popular around here, if you don't have one or rent one you are going to be very frustrated when you try to go anywhere. Don't get me wrong, this is a nice park, with very nice amenities, nice people, and nice facilities. I just don't care for how populated it is. Just too many people and golf carts for our liking. We will probably look elsewhere next year for our family vacation. We'll be here a few more days, maybe some of the crowd will depart after today. we literally stopped going there because of those golf carts..Chuck

RE: help with travel for 43' 13 ' class A

Tom/Barb. Our daughter just moved to CT. Is that impossible to drive and find an rv park. About 30 minutes from New York. Darien, Ct T/B, the streets in Darien can get fairly narrow and most have low hanging tree branches.....they are all tree hungers here the only RV campgrounds I can think of is in Madison or Thomaston..each about an hour drive not counting traffic.....you might research mobile home parks ,they will at time have an rv spot or 2...one in Orange ,Ct will have one that cuts your drive and their is one in Westport ,Ct on Rt 1..or East State st in the 1700 or 1800 block might help you..Chuck

RE: Liberty Harbor RV (Jersey City) to Cape Cod

I am looking for easiest Route with my Phaeton, towing. My best option looks to be Palisades Pkwy to 6 across the Bear Mountain Bridge and continue up 90 to I 84 to I 691 to I 91 to 2 to 395 to 195 in Providence and then on out. Obviously can't go through the tunnel into Manhattan even I were certifiable, have no desire to spend my inheritance crossing TZ Bridge not that Bear Mountain is a lot less and cannot drive on the Taconic Pkwy - low clearance and not legal. If anyone who drives this route has suggestions I am open. Plan to be doing this on Tuesday July 11. Traffic doesn't worry me too much. Am prepared to take my time. I don't think you'd want to do the Bear Mtn Bridge and you CAN;T go up the Palisades...I would go from Liberty Park over to the Garden State Pwy...up to 287 then west on 287 to 87 north and cross the Hudson at the Newburgh Bridge...5 axles is $11.50....then 84 across Ct to 691 east to 91 north to Rt9 south to 95 south for 16 miles....this is how I would go.....I grew up in this area ,and have driven all you can think of here...this route,a little longer than the others but I bet at least an 1 1/2 hrs shorter from the traffic An option would be Garden State to 287 east over the TapZ...then another choice up 684 to 84 OR 287 east to 95 and up that way....neither of these get my vote...have fun...Chuck ps ,while in Madison go up Rt1 to Bill's seafood at the Bridge right on the Clinton/Westbrook town line..best seafood in Ct

RE: I95 to I 81 north from Savannah

What is a good option beside I26 to I77to connect with I81 north from Savannah. Towing 30' travel trailer. I prefer interstates over secondary roads. you can go up 95 to Virginia,then take rt 17 around Warrenton,Va ,now not an interstate but is a 4 lane divided road all the way to I-26 then 25 miles to I-81....hardly any hills...the first 10 miles off 95 can have some traffic then a great ride thru horse country...Chuck

RE: Elizabethtown, KY to Newburgh, NY and Back

Hi all! I posted a similar thread recently and am just looking for some more feedback on our upcoming trip. Our itinerary has changed a bit; we are no longer stopping in Gettysburg on our way home due to time constraints and not wanting to rush on the rest of our trip. We are allowing 3 days of traveling each direction. Here's what we are thinking we will do: On our way to NY, we plan to go east through Kentucky on I-64, then I-79 to I-68, and then Either PA 220 to I-99/I-80/81/84 -OR- take I-68 to I-70/I-81/I-78/287/I-87. I'm still need to do a little research on that route and make sure there's nothing difficult we want to avoid. (I got lots of feedback from my previous thread asking about grades so I need to go back and read that again, as well as the mountain directory.) We want to see different scenery each direction so will be heading home from Newburgh, NY, across Pennsylvania on I-84 & I-80. We'll stay the night around the PA/OH state line then head out on I-76/I-71 to Columbus and then on to Cincinnati & Louisville. We're planning to stay a night near Louisville as well. My question is, are there any places along those routes that you would recommend for taking short breaks to walk around and stretch our legs? I know there are rest areas, and those will be our go-tos if we don't find anything else of interest that we know will be easy to get in and out of with the TT. I thought if there were some neat local sights that you all knew about, that would be great. Maybe craft/farmer's markets or quirky museums or something like that...just a fun place to stop and experience the local area for a little bit without taking us too far off the interstate. We want to make the journey to and from our destination enjoyable too! Thanks in advance! You all have been really helpful already! two thoughts I have this is one>>in Wilkes-Barre,Pa...off f 81 before I-80 you have the Mohegan Sun Casino at Poccono Downs racetrack...there are a few resuarants and RV parking for the night..dry camping but none the less a few RV's there 2nd>>> the first rest area on I-80...Ohio Tpke has a dedicated RV section with elect...50/30 amps and water and dump station...for $20.00...we use it quite often...saves getting off the hwy...Chcuk

RE: Philly to CT, avoiding NYC

Like this? https://goo.gl/maps/bYJrW1HKd4m Like my post above, I don't see how to reconnect with i95 any further east in CT. Thanks! You don't need to take I-287 around the corner. Here's the route I've taken several times, weekends and weekdays. Sundays are best I-95 to Woodbridge, Garden State Parkway to I-287, across the Tappan Zee, stay on I-287 which reconnects to I-95 in Port Chester CT. This would be the way to go. I guess the question is where do you want to go in Ct...? I like the above route if it is in southern CT..but if it is farther into Ct like to go to RI...then the above route but stay on 287 after the Tap and go up 684 to 84 then across 84 to your destination ..where evre it is ..then Rt9 to 95 to RI...Chuck Our stop in CT is Hammonasset Beach State Park in Madison. Then on to RI. then use the above directions...287 to 684 to 84 east to 691 to 91 north to rt 9 south to 95 south for 16 miles...now by doing it this way,you backtrack the 16 miles on 95 south,but the traffic you miss is well worth it....and don't worry about the traffic in Waterbury construction..it slows down some,but in 10 minutes ,you are past it all..Chuck
