Baltimore to Lake Raystown

Heading from the Baltimore area to Lake Raystown Resort, in PA in a few weeks. Looking for any advice on roads to take or roads to avoid. From what I understand there are some roads that are not so fun while hauling.

I will assume your going up I 70 to Breezewood, if so from there 30 west to I think 26, not really bad, once on 26 just take your time and watch the roads for curves and low hanging trees. We always fuel up at the BP in Breezewood as they are usually the cheapest and easiest to get in & out of, there is also a Sheetz but not RV friendly.

We were just there a few weeks ago (just up the lake at Seven Points Campground). I gotta be honest, I strongly suggest staying away from Rt 164. It has a steep grade for a long way (up... and then down). I was just driving it in my truck and it gave everyone along the heebiejeebies. I'd never do it with my camper. I've never driven Rt 26 through there, so I can't offer an opinion there.

Sorry... I just realized you're coming in from the opposite direction as the steep climb on 164 (between Martinsburg, PA and The lake). You should be ok.

We rented a houseboat there a few years ago, have your camera ready 2 A-10 Warthogs flew overhead seemed like at treetop level, that was pretty cool to see. Not sure about your route we came from the other side.

The first answer is correct. DO NOT follow your GPS. It will take you over steep climbs. 30 & 26 are longer, but much easier hauling a load
