There is a CG just east of the Flying J (below I-77 ???). Go past the J, up/over a hill and CG will be down on left side. Nice, cheap, clean. We stayed there on way back from FL as our 1/2 way point in '18.

We do this every year heading to Florida and every other year, weather permitting, we head over to Nashville to visit friends. One slight change. The Tapan Zee is almost demolished, you will now be taking the Governor Mario M. Cuomo Bridge [emoticon].

In addition to a lot of campgrounds (not so many in February [emoticon] ) there are some great state parks just off 81 where you can usually stay a night. Also note that Rt 40 in Tennessee has a few twists and turns and it is not the wide open interstate that 81 is.

We use the route jplante4 suggeste, I95 SOUTH TO Rt. 9 north... When we go that direction we like to stay at the "Tri State RV Park" in Matamoras Pa. It's about 235 miles from our house in Seekonk Ma. Which is enough driving for us in one day. This camp is right at the route 209, Delaware Water Gap National Recreation Area exit off I84.

So we are going to do the Nashville trip and we are looking for advice on an area to stay a night or two on the return trip. I don’t mind if it is a little out the way as long as there is stuff to see and do. Prefer an area that is 600 miles at the most from home which is Massachusetts.
I since have also upgraded my tow vehicle to a 6.7 powered F-450 so the fuel range isn’t as much of a concern.

We were looking at Hershey pa but I camped there a few years ago and I don’t remember much to do around that area. It is definitely in the distance range I want to be in.

Well, offhand there is HersheyPark, and the chocolate world, and the (smallish but nice) Hershey Park Zoo, and maybe some events going on at the arena/convention center there. That's plenty to keep me from being bored in Hershey, but your interests may well differ.

I didn’t mean it like that, I’ve already been to Hershey park 3 years ago which was nice but I don’t think I can get my wife on all them roller coasters again. Lol

Our route through there is I-195 to Providence, then I-95 to Old Lyme CT, CT 9 to Middletown then 66/I-691 to I-84. They just finished rebuilding I-84 through Waterbury and Danbury, so if you've been avoiding it, it's better now.

From there you have a couple of choices. You can stay on I-84 all the way to Scranton to pick up I-81 or take US209 down the Delaware Water Gap and pick up I-80 to I-81.

The roads around the NYC metro area are pretty dismal. The new Tappan Zee bridge is great, but the roads to it are still 3 lane and very crowded.
