I was actually going to try this place out if I head back up there:

Home - Moose Hillock - NY Moose Hillock – NY

I found Lake George RV park to be clean, well done, spaced nicely, etc. But being right on a main drag I also found it loud. For me, it kind of took away from the experience a bit, but I would return if the above linked didn't work out for me.

Looking at NC now instead of SC given the negative feedback I'm reading about Ocean Lakes. Plus its less of a drive.

I'm considering Camp Hatteras as most of you seem to really like it. Here's a question somebody might be able to answer.

It looks like the most direct way in takes me from Route 13 around Cape Charles over the ocean and into Virginia Beach. Is that route RV friendly?

I'm just starting to branch out for the immediate tri-state area of NJ and I'm not exactly sure yet how to pick a route w/o kicking myself hours in and finding I don't fit or I'm not allowed on a certain road.

???

I've been through Moose Hillock. It is just up the road from Lake George RV. It has big sites and the pool is awesome. My wife did not like the gravel in the sites but I think she was just making an excuse because she really loves LGRV.

Everyone needs to go to Myrtle Beach and make up their own mind. If you have kids, they will absolutely love it there. Ocean Lakes and the immediate area has gobs of things to see and do.

Hatteras is great also but the kids will run out of things quicker IMO. No real difference in the temps.

Depdending on how you go in there are a few restrictions on the feeds you need to be aware of. In Norfolk there are restrictions on most tunnels and the same with CBBT. You must pull off and check your propane is off then proceed.

I95 through Baltimore you cannot use tunnels and must go via Key Bridge.

While I have not been out to OBX yet many of the state hwys in that area are trailer Friendly. I have been down through DE1/113/13/64/17 without any issues. I am sure a member will chime in on the route out to OBX who has been with more details.

Also 64E can be brutal from 295 on certain days/times of the week due to Williamsburg/VA Beach and OBX traffic. This I can tell you from first hand experience. If you have flexibility I would avoid a late Fri/Sat arrival or Sun depart and shoot for a Thurs/Monday. If your on the road before 6:00AM Sunday it's doable. Once 10AM comes and your in the Williamsburg area it's a parking lot pretty much to Fredericksburg then the same through DC.

Same with 13/113. OC feeds into 113 and it's stopped for miles between OC and Dover AFB in the same fashion.

Seems like going up to New England is less stressful from a driving perspective !

We have been in Maine once for a week. I would love to go back and spend a couple weeks there.

Making notes on the cg recommendations. We spent our whole week in the Bar Harbor/ Acadia National Park area last time.

It is unless you go west and pick up 81 to southern areas off there. It can be done, just it's a better trip if you can go on off hours/days.
