Thanks to all who replied. I'm definitely going to take a few of the suggestions especially dropping by Niagara Falls. One of the conundrums I have is not being able to stop an extra day here or there if you find an interesting place because the reservations lock you in to being at a certain place on a certain day. I'm thinking of only making reservations in the busiest places like Custer S.P. Yellowstone, Niagara Falls etc and taking my chances that I'll find a spot to camp otherwise along my route. I'd like to get your thoughts on that. When we headed out in 2010 we never planned more than 2 days out and never had a problem. We traveled through most of the Eastto Tennessee then the South and Southwest.


We stayed at The Branches of Niagara CG a couple years ago. Nice place, nice pool, far 'nuff off the interstate, yet still close to it (no noise unlike the KOA). Not too far from the falls. While in the area, there is in Buffalo,a WWII ship & sub along their pier/waterfront as well as home of the chicken wings (ongoing battle between Duff's and Anchor Bar). We ate at the AB and wasn't impressed w/ it. IF by chance the border is open, I'd suggest the CA side to view the falls and if possible arrange to have dinner atop the Skylon tower (if open).

If taking 90, be prepared for tolls. Can figure out how much NY tolls are by going to the T-ways web site. If possible, try to get a NY E-Z pass ahead of time and see to what states it works in (it's a lot of them). Sadly, some states have E-Z passes just for their systems.


Any state or agency that is a member of the EZ Pass consortium will accept transponders and accounts from any other, and their transponders will likewise be accepted at any member's facilities. That's the whole point of the EZ Pass consortium, in fact. Some do offer discounts or other deals for their own account holders that are not applied to outsiders, but any transponder is accepted and charged at the standard rates.

Some states have other electronic tolling systems that are not part of EZ Pass and are not interoperable.

New York (well, the NY thruway commission, but not the port authority of New York and New Jersey) offers a thruway motorhome plan that can save a significant amount for motorhome drivers on the thruway--basically car rates rather than tall vehicle rates, or around a 50% savings in the standard tolls. It's not necessarily the simplest discount to get as you need to convince them that you actually have a motorhome to use it with.


According to EZ Pass' website, EZ Pass is accepted in Delaware, Illinois, Indiana, Kentucky, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New Jersey - Delaware, New York, New York City Area, North Carolina, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, Virginia and West Virginia.

It does not say that it is accepted in Florida or Georgia. Uni Pass lists both Florida and Georgia as well as "Works anywhere E-PASS or E-ZPass is accepted."

I am thinking of changing from EZ Pass to Uni Pass because it can be used in Florida.

We just returned from a trip to Texas from Pa. We had reservations going down and back and glad we did. Many campgrounds were full or nearly full even during the week. If you want a little side trip, Harold Warp's Pioneer Museum in Minden, Nebraska is great.If you like history,cars,motorcycles,snow mobiles or tractors, they have it in spades. There is a campground next to the museum. When we went, they had a deal.If you stayed at the campground you got one free ticket to the museum.

I've always been a "must have a reservation" girl because otherwise I spend more time worrying about getting a spot than enjoying myself. That said if we found a place we really liked we would just plan another trip to that place. If this isn't the only trip you'll ever be taking you can make a list of places you'd like to return to and target future trips around them.


I may not have gone where I intended to go, but I think I have ended up where I needed to be Douglas Adams

RV-less for now but our spirits are still on the open road.
