You could go rt 30 to ft louden then 75 to willow hill exit/entrance to turnpike. Thatís the route I just took to get to Indiana.

If you donít want secondary roads you can go 30 to chambersburg I 81 to Carlisle then get in turnpike off rt 11 in Middlesex.

I live in the area. Depending on which campground you're at...you can take Route 16 to Route 75 which will avoid all the traffic lights in and out of Chambersburg to the Ft. Loudon exchange.

I also use Route 30 west to Route 997 (Black Gap road) past Letterkenny Army Depot all the way to the Blue Mountain Exchange of the turnpike. From the center of Gettysburg, this is 39 miles and about 13 miles East of the Ft Loudon Exchange. This also keeps you out of Chambersburg and is similar time and mileage as 30 to 75.

Yep, these routes are good although 16 takes you pretty far south if going to the Tpike but going through Chambersburg on 30 really isn't terrible either.

Regardless... Do not go farther west on route 30 than Ft. Louden!

Well no it's not like my drives through D.C. but why waste time and gas sitting at traffic lights.

Thanks. I was just 1 1/2 miles from highway 15 so I took it to I-76 (Penn Tpk) to I-70. It worked out good. Except it cost $35 to take the Tpk!

Last year leaving the Gettysburg Rally we picked up 81 south to 70 west then 68 west to 79 north and picked up 70, no tolls that way and the drive along 68 is beautiful, now 79 was not so pretty.
