Travelling to Central PA next month for a few days. While I could do the whole trip in one day from Wilmington NC, it's a long day in the saddle. So looking for a quick overnight near Richmond to break it up. We prefer a CG so not interested in Walmart. I did see a few near Kings Dominion, but being a resort area prices are way more than we want to pay just for an overnight. We'll be travelling I95, cutting to 17 over to 66 in Fredericksburg.

Any suggestion is appreciated.

Not long after you get on 95 from 295, to your right will be americamps. I believe it is exit 89 and backtrack a little ways.

Winchester Va. I think it’s called Candy Land or something like that. On I-81 bypass. I have stayed there a couple of times.

When we lived in MD we stayed there a few times. Good suggestion but I think maybe an hour longer than we want to go on day 1. Plus I'd have to manage the Fredericksburg,17,66 fiasco around rush hour based on our timing. Thanks though, it's a good suggestion otherwise. Appreciate it.

The only open to the public CG I stayed at in that area was the KOA just south of Fredericksburg. Prices tend to vary so can't say if it's still affordable.

If you have authorization to use MWR/FamCamps, due to the high number of defense operations in the area, there are many MWR/FamCamps all up and down I95 area.

About 20 miles south of Richmond, easily accessible from I-95 is Pocahontas State Park. We have been there before. Very nice wooded setting. Very quiet. We were there early spring and they had a freakish winter snow storm. Closed the park with us in it. Didn't want any more coming in, but we got to stay. Very attentive rangers. Love our stay!
