Anyone from Maryland traveling to International Rally

Anyone going to the International Rally in Goshen, IN in August? If so, what routes will you be taking. I have never traveled more than 150 miles in my camper and so that makes me a newbie when it comes to long trips. Also, have never been to a FROG rally. Any tips would greatly be appreciated.

I don't think you have many choices onthe route from Maryland.
Here is what Google Map suggets.

Assuming all goes well and dental expenses don't kill the budget, we plan on staying at KOA Madison/Pittsburg, Big Sandy/Maumee Campground outside Toledo, and arriving early at the Rally.

We have stayed at the KOA often. Any feedback on Big Sandy as a choice?

I was just trying to find information about that KOA and it may not exist anymore. It may be under another name. Website comes up non-existant
Big Sandy Toledo/Maumee Campground

I couldn't find any website. Maybe you can.

I did find this one outside Toledo.
Toledo East / Stony Ridge KOA

24787 Luckey Road
Perrysburg, OH43551

As Iggy posted, it's a pretty straight shot. I drove out to Crown Point, IN last year in my truck without the camper and took I-70 to I-76 to I-80 (I live minutes off of I-70). Decent drive, lots of road construction and would be the route that I'd take if pulling the camper. High speed limits, so you'll definitely be the slow guy on the road (doesn't bother me none, though).

That and the tolls- it got fairly expensive with just the truck. And our EZ-Pass got finicky. Sometimes it worked, sometimes it didn't. Not sure if that was a fluke or what.

We came back the Ohio and Pennsylvania Turnpikes from Goshen last year. I-80/90 and I-70/76. Nice traveling. I don't have a total, but I think the tolls were around $40 to $50 for the truck and a tandem axle trailer. There are some hills in western PA., but I don't think there is any way to avoid those.

We take 70 to Columbus & head North to 6, to Fort Wane where I hit 33 that goes all the way to Goshen. They are all good roads with 33 being the worst one, you might get stuck behind slow moving cars. I get tired of seeing interstate highways after a while though. There is a good state park in OH just West of Wheeling. From there you can make it to Goshen in 1 day. There is also a state park just North of Columbus if you want to make it a 3 day trip.

Herk...FYI
Depending on your needs and preferences, we've boondocked at the:
Flying J Travel Plaza (~10 mi east of Maumee)
26415 Warns Road, I-280 Exit 1b, Lake, OH 43551
(419) 837-2100 ‎pilotflyingj.com
We've stopped at a number of Flying J's in the past and this is actually our favorite. I see that there is also a Pilot (now PilotFlying J) at the sam exit, but no experience with that one.
