Does anyone know open campgrounds on east coast

Recommended Posts

I'm wondering if by chance anyone knows of any campgrounds open right now on the east coast. Right now I'm at Myrtle Beach SC, and

need to get back to New Hampshire as soon as possible. To drive straight from here, google maps says fourteen hours but I know

full well pulling my trailer will take even longer. No way can I do that.

I don't want to stop at Walmarts, did that before once and didn't feel comfortable.

 

Does anyone have any ideas where I might be able to stay for just a night (with elect..) to at least cut this drive in half?

Worse case, I'll have to wait till warmer weather, but I need to get up there now. .

 

thanks so much if anyone can help,

 

Barbara,

Good afternoon, Ms. Barbara.

About halfway between Myrtle Beach and New Hampshire brings you to the Maryland area.  If you go online to Google maps, https://www.google.com/maps/, and type in "RV parks near Laurel, MD"  (or any other city) you will see several locations indicating RV parks.

If you then go to http://rvparksreview.com/ you can get some idea as to costs and value.

Drive carefully.

Regards,

Michael

Thank you so much everyone!  I have lots to map out now. I figure I can drive five hours a day, my dogs don't seem to mind but still it isn't fair to them to keep them in the truck longer then that.

I also noticed some state parks along the coast are open all year as well, so I can consider them if they don't take me too far off the route. 

 

It's nice that so many people popped up here to help.

 

Much appreciated!!!

Barbara

I hope you are somewhat familiar with your route and I would guess you will need at least 2 stops not too far off route.  I would plan for that contingency just in case.

x2.

Five hours of driving does not take into consideration meal and potty breaks. Adding those would make for longer days than I would like.

One other thing you might want to try is to go to the following link and click on the state that you think you want to stop in. Then at the top of the page click on the state map link. The next page will have a menu on the right where you can select "open all year".  I would call ahead though to make sure the info is correct.

It may help folks give you more specific ideas if you say where in NH you are headed and what route(s) you are considering. We travel the East Coast fairly often and prefer to avoid Baltimore, Washington and Richmond by taking US-17 and US-13/113 up the coast to South of Philadelphia instead of I-95. Others prefer a more inland route using I-81 and other routes to pass to the West of the Baltimore/Washington area. Still others grit their teeth and take I-95 and the beltways. There are some parks open all year on each route which may or may not work for you. In my experience, the farther North and inland you go, there are fewer choices.

I just wanted to come back to this and thank all those who responded. I consider myself very lucky, now home in New Hampshire.. First, I didn't realize there would be such a huge storm up the coast (just got here a day ahead of it)  

Wanted to take the most direct route, and found open campgrounds along the coast. Was terrified to go through New York city but didn't want to waste time going around it, got stopped at the tool booth for the tunnel since I had propane and didn't know that wasn't allowed, so got a police escort.

Then, coming up through Mass, was terrified to see a car coming down 93 in the fast lane the wrong way towards me, a huge tractor trailer guy turned and stopped whoever it was. I think he saved my life

I'm glad I'm home, at least for now. I'm also glad I tried the RV lifestyle, but know now it's not for me. I'd like to write more about what I learned (about life and myself) by going out west alone and handling different challenging situations

I have to say, I saw a lot of very poor people in this county I had no idea of, especially the Indian reservations out in South Dakota.   I have gained much more appreciation for the things I have.

Anyway, thank you all, now that I have time to come back and thank you.

Glad you made it home OK

Sorry the lifestyle did not work for you

You don't have to go to a reservation to find poor people in this country, though they are certainly present there.
