NE PA to Fort Wilderness

Booked a week at Fort Wilderness for November. Thinking about my route down. Gonna just do 95 as it's a strait shot. About 16 hrs. I plan on staying at the campground (Pedro's) at South of the Border on the way down. It's full hookups, and cheap, about half way, and I wanna stop there anyway. Any reviews? On the way back I was thinking of making it a two stop trip. Anyone have any recommendations close to the 95 route. Thinking South Carolina/Georgia and VA/Maryland. Any other tips/tricks welcome.

I know you didn't say North Carolina but we are planning to stay at Carolina Crossroads on our way to myrtlebeach this year. It's gotta good reviews on this forum. It's located in northern North Carolina. Good luck with your planning.

For a 2 stop trip on the way home maybe New Green Acres near Walterboro SC and either Carolina Crossroads or the campground at Kings Dominion. We have also used the Yogi Bear at Emporia Va. and Bass lake in Dillon SC all good for a overnight stop

Thought about the Yogi Bear. That's a good location. Usually like the Yogi Bears. That one looked a little run down.

I'll also recommend Carolina Crossroads in Roanoke Rapids, NC. Easy in/easy out.

In Southern Georgia (I think) is Whisperin' Pines in Rincon. Again, stayed there and it was pretty easy.

I spent a night at Kosmos Village in Glenn Allen, VA. Basically, they have a couple of dozen RV spots in front of a trailer park. Short office hours and no facilities- but it was a cheap place to spend the night when I needed A/C. I'd stay there again if arriving late, leaving early, and not planning on exploring. Though, our neighbors said they had been there a month.

Lots of good info. I'm so excited about this trip. I'm thinking New Green Acres first night ( about 5 hrs from Disney). And Yogi Emporia VA second night (about 5.5 hrs from NGA). Then 7 hrs to home on Sunday.
Carolina crossroads looked super nice. Not really a fan of the no trees mega lots tho. Looks like a mall parking lot.
Any other tips on this trip keep em up!!!

Goose--I'm in WB and heading to FL in 2 weeks. Doing 81 south to I-77 to I-26 to I-95. Taking 95 through Philly, Wilmington, Newark, Baltimore, the DC Beltway, and Richmond is not a fun drive. The 81 route is 30 miles longer but a much nicer drive/pull. Good luck either way!
