    December 25, 2018We are planning a visit to Washington DC during the cherry blossom festival March 20 - April 13, 2019. I thought we'd find a campground and then drive to the nearest metro station to get to the National Mall. I was looking at the Greenbelt National Par...  more

      Curtis December 25, 2018 Cherry Hill Park is by far the most convenient to the mall: https://www.cherryhillpark.com/ A little pricey, but open all year and definitely worth it while you take in everything DC. Hope this helps!

        Octavia September 9, 2018 How far south are you going?
    • Octavia
      Kathy Preble September 9, 2018 I'm running across I-81 to 1-40 w to Arkansas. Then south to Many La. I follow the warmth south. Furthest I go is the FL. panhandle.

    July 7, 2018I want to thank the ones who recommended getting an EZPass. It has made traveling through New York much easier and faster so far.

    May 5, 2018I have read several recommendations for getting an EZPass for this area. I’m planning to do that. My question is, do we need a separate transponder for our 5th wheel?

      Hillary April 7, 2018 I can't give personal recommendations for dog friendly parks, but maybe the folks in these groups can give some helpful advice: https://www.rvillage.com/group/916/rving-with-dogs and https://www.rvillage.com/group/2099/take-your-dog-along

      TumbleLees (Bill & Debbie) June 11, 2018 We are currently in Cook Forest State Park in Pennsylvania. They seem to be very dog friendly and have a section just for dog owners! We see all sized and numbers here, too. They have full hook up sites but call them "primitive" but I am not sure why. We ...  more

      TumbleLees (Bill & Debbie) June 11, 2018 We just wrote about our first stop in SW Pennsylvania. We stayed in a Passport America campground which was close enough to Harrisburg and Gettysburg. We had toured Gettysburg before so skipped it this time but LOVED the Capitol tour and the PA State Muse...  more

        FLitters June 11, 2018 We also only stay in full hookups if there for more than a couple of nights. Did these state parks have fhu? Most don’t.

    February 20, 2018Went up to the RV show in Springfield last weekend and discovered that a campground in CT called Brialee Campground (Seen the name never stayed), claims to charge 20 dollars for any site in the month of April, and 25 for the month of may. Anyone out there...  more

    October 31, 2017Does anyone else bring their RV up to Mohegan sun or foxwoods in CT for an overnight stay, would love to know which casino is more popular with RV'rs

      Campergates October 31, 2017 I have not done it myself at either of these two (but many others) but Allstays app reviews like both but do caution that lots are not level.  Shuttles run every 15 minutes.
    • Gary & Tammy Sherrick
      Gary & Tammy Sherrick October 31, 2017 we have been to Mohegan a few times, we like to try to get around the perimeter of the parking lot, preferably with a water view.
    • Gary & Tammy Sherrick
      Guy & Vi Mazzarella October 31, 2017 Live near both and the parking areas always have 8--10 or more RV's parked as someone pointed out at the Sun you can have river views.

        Gary & Tammy Sherrick April 23, 2018 We tend to flock to Mohegan more than Foxwoods mainly because we like Mohegan better, not just their RV parking lot.
