RE: nothing seems to be open in pa and Ohio

If you want to go on a weekend, it can be tough. We have found if you can go in on a Sunday ,then your chances of finding a site greatly improves.

RE: The best camping spots are free.

Thanks steelhunter. I left the East Coast almost 50 years because it was hard to find a place to camp. Now I have a million acre backyard of public land and can camp on all of it. We live in Pa and have had no problem finding great camping spots. We love state and federal parks. I guess if you go in the peak summer season it might be hard, but we usually go spring and fall.Go in on a Sunday and leave on Thursday before all the weekenders show up.There are many Forest Service or Corps of Engineer Campgrounds in Virginia and West Virginia that are great.And with the Senior Pass, they are very reasonable.

RE: NC variety vacation land

Arizona is the same way. Desert to mountains,lakes,Grand Canyon,history etc. We were there in March. Our first night in central Arizona mountains it was 65 when we got there, overnight 2 inches of snow. Then we went to Payson it was in the 70's and low 80's. Then went to Scottsdale to meet some friends and it was 90.

RE: I-70 west

Depending on where you are starting from in PA, consider dropping South to I-68 and I-64 to Saint Louis. They are usually in much better condition than I-70 and less traffic. West of Saint Louis we use US-36 or US-50. Both are good highways with interesting small towns to visit along the way. Both have enough campgrounds. RV parks along the way. Several small towns have city parks that allow overnights and some even have hookups. There are also county parks and fairgrounds that have facilities for overnight stops. I64 is a better road than 70 but fuel stops are fewer and far between.

RE: I-70 west

I agree with Rt 36. It is better than I 70 and there are 2 nice Missouri State Parks along the way. We stayed at Pershing State Park 3 years ago. Paid $22 a night with electric.

RE: Gas tax increase in some states July 1st

We all know taxes don't go down, they only go up. Pennsylvania still holds the honor of the highest gas tax, 58 cents. I believe we will have 'slight' increases in 2020, if not before. I don't think the gas tax is going up, but we just had another increase in registration and transfer fees. These dam politicians just can't get enough of our money. Plus, hundreds of millions from the gas tax go to fund the state police. That is illegal but nobody does anything about it.

RE: Outer Banks National Park Service campgrounds

ok thanks to all of your replies. We figured they may be hard to get into. TaraBut that don't mean you shouldn't try. They may have a few openings or cancelations,especially if you can be a little flexible. It doesn't hurt to check.

RE: Outer Banks National Park Service campgrounds

We stayed at Frisco campground. No hookups but some nice isolated sites with trees. Generators allowed.Oregon Inlet has added some sites with hookups. We enjoyed the Wright Brothers Memorial, Graveyard of the Atlantic Museum and the Life Saving Museum in Rodanthe.Of course the summer is the busiest time, you may be able to find a site by going in on a Sunday afternoon when the weekenders are leaving.

RE: I need help picking a location..

Someone mentioned Pipestem State Park in West Virginia. That is a great park and campground. They have indoor and outdoor pools. Fishing, tennis,golf,mini golf, nature walks,2 restaurants, horse back riding,archery and more. In Pa, we liked Bald Eagle Lake State Park. They have electric and full hookup sites. Plenty of room between sites. They have a nice beach and boat rental. If you drive into Lock Haven, the Piper Aircraft Museum is nice.

RE: Virginia I -81 corrider gas tax.

Me personally, I'd much rather pay 7 cents more per gallon than have to deal with another toll. According to Wikipedia, I-81 through VA is only 325 miles long. Unless a vehicle gets really bad gas mileage or has a really small tank, it should make it through VA without having to fill up. That being said, I am pretty sure, even with the additional 7 cents tax, that MD and NC will still have higher gas prices than the gas stations along I-81 in VA. -MichaelI agree about tolls. But why not make the tax state wide instead of just I-81? I-95 and I-64 have a lot of traffic too.Do you think it could be because the state and federal capitols are near those roads?

RE: Flying J Dedicated RV Lanes

If you have the Flying J card you get 8 cents a gallon off diesel.Only problem with the separate pumps is sometimes people fill up and go into store. Some pumps have signs on them to move forward after refueling. One time there were 2 motor homes at the pump. They were there when we got there and there when we left and no one was around. We had to use the regular pumps but sometimes that's not possible. Fortunately most people are considerate and move after fueling.

Virginia I -81 corrider gas tax.

I don't know if this was reported before, but I am sick and tired of politicians who are always looking to tax us more. How about looking at ways to reduce costs? We use I-81 for many of our trips into Virginia and beyond. This is outrageous. https://wcyb.com/news/local/gas-prices-going-up-along-i-81-in-va-starting-july-1

RE: Myrtle Beach

If you don't need to be on the beach you can try Willow Tree inland.+ Willowtree is a 1st class campground with the only negatives no cable TV and a slow internet connection. Dave And no beach Well, they do have a beach. It's on a lake,not the ocean. About 20 of the sites have their own hot tubs.

RE: Two aussies

Hopefully, everything goes well for you.Before you get here, and while you're here, come back to this forum and let us know where you plan to go and we can give you advice on what to see and where to stay. There are all kinds of campgrounds. Some people like me prefer state and federal campgrounds because they usually have more room and cost less than many private campgrounds. We can also suggest routes which can avoid heavy traffic. This country is huge and there's a lot to see. Hope you enjoy your trip and we'll be glad to help you if we can.

RE: Historic Triangle Virginia

If you prefer state parks, Chippokes Plantation state park is right across the river from Jamestown. There is a free car ferry that drops you off at Jamestown.The campground has water and electric hookups and room between sites.I believe we paid $33 a night.
