I am headed to Lake George from South Jersey and my route was going to be GSP to 87. Friend called and said he saw a sign at exit 105 that said all trailers must exit. I called the GSP office and was told that if my trailer was over 7000 lb. that I was not aloud North of 105 on the GSP. The person I talked to did not know if this was just for commercial trailers. Do any of you travel through this area often? Does this apply to 5th wheel RV also? If so what is the best route once I get up there? I live 5 min. from exit 13 on the GSP

THANKS

Camping trailers, motor homes, and 5th wheels are allowed the entire length of the Garden State Parkway (but tow dollies are not).

I live 2sec off of exit 100.... You CAN take your TT all the way to the end at the NY Throughway

If you have EZ PASS you can use it also (this includes hi speed EZ PASS)

The low bridges mentioned are basically between the NJTP & The Union toll plaza after the toll plaza it is tight and a bit windy going through the Oranges once you hit the Essex toll plaza you are free and clear to the Throughway

If you make the trip on a Sunday jump on rt 17 in Paramus you will take that to the Throughway also but you will save 15 min there are no lights on that part of 17 DO THIS ONLY ON A SUNDAY BECAUSE THERE IS NO SHOPPING ALLOWED ON SUNDAY IN BERGEN COUNTY

I am also going to Lake George in a few weeks and I am going the same way maybe we will see eachother on the road

Why not get off in the Amboys at the 440/287 exit? Avoids the northern tolls etc and puts you on the NY Thruway a little west.

The Chief is correct. One word of warning though - there are a number of arched bridges between about exits 129 and 150 that will definitely be too low for a 13+ft 5th wheel on the shoulders and possibly the far right and left lanes. The bridges are well marked so you will know ahead whether you need to move to a middle of the road lane.

If I was you here is how I would go.

Garden State Parkway to route 78 and hang the first exit u-turn and go west on 78 to 24 west to 287 north to the Thruway. I live in North Jersey and thats how I go south and North. It avoids the 287 loop that adds 15 miles, and it avoids the Oranges which can be a mess. If you go the length of the Parkway to Thruway it adds some miles, the 17 idea is agood also, but sometimes the Oranges can get cloggedup even on Sunday....

I don't agree with taking Route 287 to the NY Thruway as it goes further west and will add an additional 20 miles on to your trip,and is often congested! Unless the G.S.P. is so congested that you are not moving for miles, it's not worth taking Rt. 287!

Thanks for the info. We made it up and back in one piece without hitting any traffic. We had a great time at Rodgers Rock State Park. Thanks.
