We spent 3 nights over Memorial Day weekend in Western MD at Rocky Gap SP and had a fabulous time. To get there (from the Harrisburg, PA region) we had to drive over 5 mountain ranges of which some had somewhat long steep grades (especially the Sideling Hill cut). It was certainly our heaviest haul yet as we had bikes and a generator onboard (no hook-ups). My TV did struggle up some of these mountain ranges (45 mph at 3200 rpm with the pedal bottomed out) but we managed. Other than the ranges, it pulled nicely (with overdrive on) between 60-65. Since I don't expect to be going in the direction of too many mountain ranges with my current set-up, I don't expect to upgrade to a larger TV anytime soon.
Thanks for all the feedback.
BTW, I highly recommend Rocky Gap SP. It's a beautiful mountainous setting, has a beautiful campground with a sand beach, has decent bathroom/shower facilities and has plenty of walking/bike trails including one around the perimeter of Lake Habeeb. There are at least 2 fresh water spigots within each loop. If you are into golf, there is a Jack Nicklaus signature golf course there. There is one campground loop with electric hook-up only. Check them out.
If anyone knows of any state parks on/near the East Coast (preferably MD, DE or NJ) that has full (or partial) hook-ups that you'd recommend, I'd be very interested in knowing about them. If there are private campgrounds that have allot of shade (i.e. trees), I'd also be interested in hearing about them as we certainly like shade and not sitting on top of other RVers. Although we had a very nice time with no hook-ups over this past weekend (except my generator), it's certainly nice to have all the benefits of hook-ups when we can get them.
