Hi all. New to the forum. We will be traveling from Voorhees, NJ to Lake George RV in New York in a 40’ motorhome pulling our truck. We can easily get to the Jersey turnpike. Anyone know the best route to take? Thanks for any help!

We went up to Lake George in June 2017 form the Jersey Shore. From your location I would suggest the NJ Turnpike to I287 to join the NY Thruway and the Adirondack Northway (I87) all the way to exit 20 for route 149 - Fort Ann & Whitehall.

From Exit 20 it was a left turn at a traffic light then about 1/2 mile to a right turn onto 149. Traffic was bad in this area due to a number of outlet stores in the section between the exit and 149.

FYI, we stayed at King Phillips Campground a mile or so further north.

CloudDriver's route description is the way I would go. The only change I might consider would be taking something like the Garden State Parkway to Rt 17 to I-87 and there north; Google suggests it's the same time but a few miles shorter...but I suspect I-287 would be easier going and probably better all things considered.

There's no practical way to avoid the congestion around Lake George and especially the outlet shops; luckily the worst of it is not a long stretch of road, maybe a quarter mile.

I may be mistaken, but I believe the Garden State Parkway is closed to commercial and large vehicles like a motorhome. Overpasses are too low.

The GSP is open to RVs. The only issue with the overpasses is that a few are lower in the extreme right lane. I use the GSP from I-87 whenever I go through there. I-287 is ok but very rough in some spots.

I'd take the Turnpike to 287 and then up to the Thruway. Once you pass I-80, 287 isn't too bad.

Watch the signs around Albany to stay with I-87 and the Northway as the NY Thruway turns West and becomes I-90.

I'm 12'6" and have driven the entire length of the GSP many times. Those low bridges are arches and the shoulders are where it gets tight. They are mostly between Exits 120 and 140.

Moose Hill Lock and make reservations early. Booking at least a week for a site. Shying away from weekenders somewhat. LARGE sites, awesome pool. QUIET.
