Leaving in a few days from NY and meandering down to Fla. Plan on taking Skyline Dr in VA and Blue Ridge Pkwy to Asheville NC then south to FL kn 441. Looking for camping and sightseeing tips along the way. Trying to avoid high price campgrounds and rig set up to boondock also.I do use my passport America card quite a bit. Plan 2-3 weeks to get to Fl. Also if any one has any recommendations as far as where to store my rv anywhere from Ft. Pierce to West Palm beach I'd appreciate any suggestions. Thank you all.

JR,

You didn't include your departure point and NY is a big area. I normally would have said that Skyline and Blue Ridge are kind of a diversion. While not a bad diversion and if your starting point is well west of the Hudson, it might not be much of a diversion at all.

Do be aware that some of the tunnels of the Blue Ridge are kind of low clearance. If you are leaving soon, be aware that the southern leaf peepers will be out in force.

We did that run from Cherokee to Front Royal and didn't pay to camp anywhere.

That was 10 years ago and we need to do it again.

The Outer Banks was awesome in my opinion. Wright brothers first flight at Kill Devil Hills, endless sandy beach, Cape Hatteras lighthouse, flight on an open cockpit WW2 biplane at Dare airport, ride on the coolest ferry ride anywhere from Hatteras to Ocracoke, and so much more. We will definitely be back.

It was heartbreaking when we were there soon after Matthew went by to see the damage caused by the storm. People on the Left Coast talk about Pacific storms which can be awesome, but do not compare to getting pounded by an Atlantic hurricane year after year.

Check out Fancy Gap campground on the Blue Ridge Parkway, its a short drive to the Blue Ridge Music Center. Watch clearances on the Blue Ridge.
We just spent 3 nights in Asheville at Wilsons, noisy with the highway but right on a the bike trail

Departing from western NY. Not concerned with sights or routes in NY. Just want to get away from the cold weather, then slow down and enjoy trip. Looking for any recommendations along or close to Skyline Pkwy or Blue Ridge Pkwy to boondock.

Our favorite Asheville area campground is the Lake Powhatan Recreation Area in the Pisgah National Forest. The mis-named "Lakeside Loop" has full hookup sites.

There are several campgrounds along the parkway,none have hookups. I would recommend getting a space early in the afternoon. There are also some good campgrounds not far off the parkway. One is Sherando Lake. The other is Goose Point.Both have electric. Not sure how late they are open.South Carolina State Parks used to be fairly cheap. We paid $18 a night 5 years ago for water and electric hookup. Not sure what they cost now.
