RE: RV Parks from Crofton, MD to Charleston, SC

We will be traveling in our motorhome from Crofton MD to final destination of Charleston, SC. We would like to go about three hours the first night and finish the trip the following day or about five more hours. Need recommendations for an overnight campground South of Richmond VA on I-95. Americamp at Ashland or Yogi Bear at Emporia VA are being considered. Anyone stay at either one? Any other suggestions are welcome. Thanks! Ashland is north of Richmond..just....but if you can make it to the NC border...go to Carolina Crossroads....nice overnight..Chuck

RE: Route 81 to 40 to Nashville

What campground did you stay at in Nashville....I am looking to go next year and was looking for a nice RV resort We stayed at Nashville KOA in their brand new premium sites with RV pads and patio furniture all which were well groomed with grass and shrubbery. For some the $74/night may seem like a lot, but when you camp in the Northeast $74/night is a bargain. we stayed at 2 Rivers campground which is nice enough....agree with gcloss..when you come from the Northeast,where the streets are lined with GOLD....high prices roll off your back...Chuck

RE: SE New England to Charlotte, NC (Carowinds)

We have a Coaster Crew event coming up in a few weeks at Carowinds in Charlotte, NC. Still debating on my route. I95 to I85 seems flatter, but round trip tolls will cost me over $180. I81 to I77 is a bit longer, and probably hillier, and avoids most Metro areas. Any input? Towing a Roo 183 with a Jeep Liberty Diesel. We do this trip through there maybe 4 or 5 times a year from western Ct...I would suggest that you come down 95 from RI to rt 9 ,to 91 south to 691 to 84,then stay on 84 to Newburgh,NY....there go south on 87 to Sufferin,NY and take 287 west to 78,,,roughly 45 miles to 78....stay on 78 to 81....stay on 81 to 77 in Wythesville,Va...77 straight down to your destination....also many campgrounds to chose from..IM me if you want any info Now, coming home...if you want to go to Kings Dominion....go the by-pass out of campground to 85 to 95 up to Kings..straight thru Richmond as all the construction is done ..we just came thru there last Friday...when you leave Kings go up 95 to Spotavanya,Va and take rt 17 north toward Warrenton,Va to I-66 to I-81...and just repeat the above directions in reverse.... We use both of these routes..switching back and forth for a change Chuck

RE: North Florida and South Georgia

How about US 84 west to Thomasville, then US 319 through Tallahassee, Crawfordville, Sopchoppy, etc. to US 98. Might be a tad further but these roads are certainly clear and suitable for any sized RV. lizzie (PS. sorry about the AC) I would do 84 to Thomasville as noted.....then in Thomasville pickup rt 19 straight to rt 27 then 27 into 319..Capital Circle ....down to 98....this put you on the south side of Tally..we go in this way for football all fall...Chuck I heard ya...but there is hardy any traffic on that part of 27 and bring him to the same spot on 319....me thinks....there is only 2 lights on 27 and one is 319...Chuck

RE: Campground in Cape Cod

Scusset Beach State Reservation. The campground is adjacent (walking distance) to the Atlantic Ocean beaches and the beginning of the Cape Cod Canal. The Canal has paved bike/walking paths wide enough for official cars to pass so you can bike-ride abreast in spots if you like, depending on pedestrian traffic. Stop for ice cream/drinks at the small store along the Canal banks or continue under the Bourne bridge into the Town of Bourne ahead. Observe the boats transiting the canal and the fishermen on the Canal banks. Sometimes you may see an ocean liner snake it's way along, quite a sight! Cross the Sagamore or Bourne bridges by bike and explore the paths on the other side of the Canal. The Canal is several miles long though so pace yourselves to your kids' abilities. Regards and Have Fun! this is a great campground but has been closed while they upgrade their elect...half will take reservations starting July 1 the other half on Aug 1...the bike trail is 7 1/2 miles long to Buzzard Bay......where their are many rest..the beach on the bay side is across the parking lot Second choice would be Atlantic Oaks i Eastham ..as noted here....has bike trail at back of campground that is unlimited..to P-Town and 1 mile to Nat'l Seashore Park....and Arnolds next store is all you need....Chuck

RE: Campground to beware of

It gets a 'good' rating on rvparkreviews.com. Most reviewers commented on the narrow sites. I noticed that the price of a night's stay is pretty low, so I expect that set everyone's expectations. I guess it's one of those "you get what you pay for" places. I've stayed a few times....they don't hurt for business.....thought they were the same owners....only knock I have on the place is the sites are extremely narrow......but I didn't think the rates were cheap by any thought...fairly pricey in my book...Chuck

RE: I81 north of Harrisburgh to Scranton very rough

Drove up 81 to 84 this week and 81 is extremely rough. Much of it is in bad need of resurfacing. Sorry I didn't take I78 like I usually do. Also lots of closed shoulders with concrete barriers and very narrow lanes. Bill, should have gone 81 to 78 to 33 to 209.....like you do many other times....came back from Pa Dutch country yesterday...nice ride..Chuck

RE: Best route from Wilmington, De to Avon Ct.

In August we will be driving our 36 ft motorhome from Wilmington, De to Avon Ct. I just found out some of the routes do not allow RV's. What would be the best route to take from these locations? Thanks I would go like the last poster...up 95 to Woodbridge,NJ......and then pickup 287 to 87 North in Sufferin,NY to 84......once in Ct , I would go to Waterbury and take rt 8 north to rt 44 into Avon....only because of the construction on 84 passed Waterbury.... Now our daughter lives in Avon....and this is a little longer but misses the const and traffic...Chuck

RE: Please recommend a campground near I-75 south of Atlanta Ga

About 2 hours south of Atlanta and 2 hours north of Florida line and 4.5 hours to Orlando, we like Twin Oaks RV Park exit 127 then left. Passport America park. I would call ahead if you want a pull thru. http://twinoaksrvpark.com/ this is a great campground and have stayed many times there....also a new campground at exit 80 next to Carrolls which is another 47 miles south..Chuck

RE: Leaving tomorrow for Fla

If you are taking 295 bypass around Jacksonville, stay at Flamingo Lake Campground... right off 295, easy off & on, clean, nice sites, nice people... we have stayed there 4 nights as transients......don't need to unhook, they have a snack bar/café, food is good..... When we took that route to Florida, we considered Flamingo Lake, also. It is a nice place, but its really more of a 'destination' type of campground than a stopover. Its a bit pricey if you're just stopping for one night to rest. We found a much better, and less expensive option was just a few miles north of that, just before you cross into Florida. Last exit in Georgia, exit #1, There is Country Oaks campground right off the interstate. Very simple, family owned campground located conveniently right off the interstate. Their rates are considerably less than Flamingo Lake (nearly half). Several nice pull-thru sites you can get where you won't even have to unhook (we didn't). There is also a KOA at the same exit, if thats what you like. There's a large truck stop/fuel station at the same exit, too, which is a good place to fill up on fuel before you hit the road the next morning (thats what we did). My thoughts were/are, why pay more for all the nice amenities a place like Flamingo Lake or the KOA has, when you're not going to use any of those amenities, and just going to rest for one night? Seems like a waste of $$. We stayed at Country Oaks on the way to and from Florida, and will probably stay there again any time we take that route. Now, if you plan to stay for a couple days in that area around Jacksonville, Flamingo Lake would be a good choice. I absolutely agree with this suggestion ....1)2 truck stops and fuel is cheaper in Ga than Florida..2)it is a great campground that we stay in all the time...call ahead for a pull thru and 3) there is a neat little BBQ place at the entrance that is a short walk...Chuck

RE: Leaving tomorrow for Fla

Safe travels. Depends on what time of day you leave and what your personal preferences are. We leave eastern Long Island around 5:30 AM - 6:00 AM on a weekday and check traffic on Google Maps as we get into Delaware. Then make a decision as to whether or not we're staying on 95 or taking 896, to 301 to I-95. That route takes you through Waldorf, Md where you will hit a stretch of traffic lights, is preferable if Baltimore and DC look like there's traffic or if a rush hour is approaching. Usually stop somewhere in southern NC. RVacation campground in Selma is right off i_95 on the east side. Carolina Crossroads in Roanoke Rapids is nice also if looking for a campground. Pecan Park on the north side of Jacksonville is easy on/off, reasonable with long, pullthru sites and 50 amp. We arrive in Fla on day two, around dinner time after the one stop and either head to Tallahassee, spend a night or two in Jax visiting friends or arrive at Disney's Fort Wildernss around 8:30 PM that second day. Safe travel and have fun! Wow, pretty aggressive driving plan to get to Florida on Day 2....from Ct, we go 84 to 87 south to 287 to 78 to 81 then decide if we want 1....66 to rt 17 to 95 above Richmond then down to 10..staying at Rvacation or SOB and then at Country Oaks in KIngsland...or 2..81 to 77 to Columbia to 20 to rt 83 to 75 to Fla/Ga hwy ..rt 300 to Tally...staying at Shenandoah Valley and the at the Barnyard in Columbia..great rests there... and then into Tally How many Seminole games do you guys do ?We have been doing almost all GO NOLES...Chuck
