Harrisburg, PA I would skip or just look for a state park if it is a must stop place. PA has some nice state park camping.

Boston, MA I would skip as well.

Portland, ME go to Freeport instead & boondock at LL Bean's flagship store that is open 24 hrs.

Bar Harbor, ME Backwoods Camp ground (no hookups)in the national park. Look 6 months in advance.

Baltimore, MD go to Greenbelt National Park (no hookups). Metro stations will take you to the Smithsonian if you want to see some of Washington DC. There is also small county park with electric near Bel Air (1 hour north of Baltimore on I95) that is nice.

NC I have no idea. South of the Border is not a real great place to camp.

For sites near Bar Harbor, Hadley's Point Campground is on the island about four miles from the entrance to Acadia NP is a nice family campground run by very nice folks and with reasonable prices for the area. Stayed there many times. Further away on Bucksport Road just south of Ellsworth, is Forest Ridge Campground. It's a quiet campground with nearly all large pull through sites that are full hookup, 50 amp, wifi, and cable. It also is run by really nice folks. We stayed there for the season last summer and really enjoyed it. We'll be back this year. Ellsworth is about 25 or 30 minutes from Bar Harbor. Traffic in the area can be pretty heavy in the summer.

Winter Island Park, Salem MA

Winter Island Park on Salem Harbor! Book early for the waterfront RV sites. The Salem trolley stops in front of the camp store at the marina. Salem is one of the most historic towns in a very historic area and is a 20 mile drive into downtown Boston.

As Rambler Guy said, Bar Harbor Campground is nice. They have a great system. No reservations. Drive in and find a site, set up, and then go pay for it. First come, first serve.

Scranton vs Harrisburg

If Harrisburg is a destination, Gifford Pinchot SP is a good one. But a favorite of ours is Frances Slocum SP,near Scranton. Our black lab loves swimming at Frances Slocum. Great beautiful hiking area around the lake.

Thanks everyone, looking to book my sites soon. I am still looking for a site near Providence, RI just as an overnighter. Also looking at Harrisburg, PA and Greensboro, NC as overnighters.

Don't know about other places but in Harrisburg I would highly recommend Jonestown KOA. It's just off 81, outside of Harrisburg so you can avoid city traffic. The site we had was pull-thru and level. We opted to camp along the little stream. Gas station outside the park. Park has a small store and also serves lite meals. As a previous poster suggested, go to Never been disappointed with the advice of fellow travelers. They are usually dead-on.
