New to Escapees but we've been family RVing since 2011 and missed New England on our last East Coast adventure several years ago (we're Pac NW / Greater Seattle based so rarely get to the east coast).
We are planning on a 3-week RV trip (2016 31 ft 5th wheel with slideouts on drivers side) to New England on short notice about Sep 22 (two weeks from now) to October 13 - starting in New York City area, driving to Boston for a few days for business meetings, then on to Acadia / Bar Harbor.
The return trip could go west from Bar Harbor toward Fort Ticonderoga, Niagra Falls? then south to Washington DC (at least 2 days) and return from there back to end in New York City area. Total time available is 3 weeks.
As we need good internet access and power and we aren't setup well for boondocking, we'll be looking to stay at a mixture of commercial and public state parks (we have Harvest Host and a few other memberships and for work purposes want to see the best of some of the commercial chains and independent offerings on this trip (i.e. best independent, best KOA, best Thousand Trails, best Jellystone) as well as some of the best public in the New England / New York state / Pennsylvania / Wash DC area. Willing to pay a little extra a few times for a "well worth it" campground (quiet, good private spaces, special type of river/lake/view sites, etc).
Looking for "must see" bucket list type great historical and landscape areas - as our son is now a highly capable amateur outdoor photographer and historical landmarks buff (small towns with historical buildings, etc).
Any suggestions for how to camp near metro areas like Boston, Wash DC possibly Philadelphia? (optional but history buffs) and especially for recommendations near Acadia NP in late September.
Thanks for any help and suggestions! First time in 5th wheel but experienced Class A, Class C and Trailer camping.
