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: 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

RE: Hudson Valley NY to Florida

My wife and I are planning on driving down to Florida in March/April towing our TT. I would like to avoid the "trouble/traffic" areas of I95 and was thinking of taking I81 down towards Virginia instead of 95 through NJ, MD, etc. I don't mind going a little out of the way if it means avoiding traffic and driving on an open highway, but am concerned that 81 may be too much out of the way. Anyone have any suggestions? Also, I remember from driving down in the past without an RV that there are certain areas where you cannot go through with propane, but can't remember exactly where. I want to avoid these areas completely with the TT this time. Any suggestions would be appreciated. I go 84 to Newburgh,NY...then 87 south to Sufferin,NY to 287..stay on 287 to 78 west to 81...stay on 81 to I-66 in Va..just past Winchester...go down 66 for 25 miles to Va rt 17 stay on this 4 lane road to I-95 , just north of Richmond,va......great ride...Chuck Hey Bill, do you still go to Pine Hill...last time I was there it seemed empty and the price was quite a bit on the upside......Chuck

RE: Bangor Me to Florida Suggested Routes

.then using above ,go down 81 to I-66 for 25 miles to Va rt 17 to I-95....above Richmond,Va...this is a good route with only limited amount of steep grades a good way to avoid the balt/DC mess. bumpy ^ what he said! we avoid nyc and nj too. Either stay on 84 through ct into pa then take 81 from Scranton. A little quicker is to get off 84 in ct onto 684 then 287 across the tappan zee bridge. Then you can take 80 or 78 over to 81. This avoids all the major cities except Hartford. Hartford is very easy to get through at night if you can time your trip for it. there are a few different routes to take back to 95 in va. 77 has a 7 1/2 mile steep grade at fancy gap. 64 has a long grade also, but I do not think it is as steep. avoid nyc, nj, Baltimore, dc, if you can! If you do not have one, get an ez pass for tolls. with it, most tolls you simply slow down through, some you do not even slow at all. Tolls are much easier and faster easier with one. The only state on that route that did not accept it is fl. They might accept it now, I am not sure. You can stay on 84 to 81 in Scranton......but not the best roads or route....too much construction and can get some weather this time of the year.....taking 84 to NY , then in NY pickup 684 to 87 across the Tap will work....I prefer the 84 to 87 crossing the Hudson in Newburgh....then 287 to 78 to 81 the ez-pass doesn't work in Florida but can buy the Sunpass at any service area if you plan on going far south and use the Florida Tkpe....Chuck
