On our trips along I-95, we have often stayed at The RV Resort at Carolina Crossroads, or the KOA in Enfield, NC. Both are just a few miles into NC from VA.

Use the Park Advisor app to locate CGs near where you want to stop, look for the reviews, call them, etc.

I've made the run from Baltimore to Orlando quite a few times, here's a list of places I've stayed at along I-95:

Add our vote for Carolina Crossroads. Easy on and off I-95. The town of Roanoke Rapids is very close by if you need anything. The park is clean, nice facilities, well laid out sites, great pool and oh…….that hot tub. What’s not to like?

BTW…..they have pull thru sites for later in the day arrivals with reduced rates because your time there will be short.

Pocahontas State Park is in Chesterfield VA only minutes from I95 just south of Richmond. Great spot for an overnight stop. About midway between Richmond and Petersburg.

We are also from southeastern PA and we have taken 81 instead of 95 to either 64 or 77 back to 95. Less stress. On this trip we Stayed at Point South KOA in South Carolina (it’s a long drive but left us about 6-7 hours to Disney).

Other options we have stayed on our way to Myrtle beach are KOA Fredericksburg and RV Resort at Carolina Crossroads.

Enjoy the trip.

Also, you didn't ask- but be aware that you can't take either of the tunnels in Baltimore. You have to take an alternate route. A lot of people will do the 695 beltway - to the east is a toll + less traffic; the west is no toll but more traffic.

Exit 40 of 95 South in Vs is a CG that I use. Not far from the exit, Dollar store there and out in front on the way in is a good place to eat.

Originally from the Lehigh Valley area of eastern PA (now live in FL, first exit off I-95) and for many years now I have always taken I78 to Harrisburg and then south on I-81. If we are visiting our son in Richmond, VA we'll take RT17 across from I81 to I95 just north of Richmond. It eliminates Baltimore and Washington. If not visiting our son we'll run I-81 to I-77 to I-26 to I-95 in SC.

The I-81, I77, I26 route from Bethlehem, PA to the first exit in FL off I95 for me is only about 35 miles longer than me going thru Phila, Baltimore, and DC to FL.

Not Sure what your traveling in (or towing) or where in NE PA you're starting from? And not sure how many miles a day you hope to travel to get to Disney.?

As PSUFan1 said, much less stress traveling the I81 (western route).
Safe travels

Point South KOA is also easy on/easy off I-95, AND…….there’s the tasting room in the main building. Also, you can order and schedule pizza to be delivered to your site at check in.

I see you are in Pen Argyl, north of Allentown. If you want a less stressful first day, a 300 mile trip to Ameri-Camp (Ashland VA) is an option. We stop there on our trips from State College to Norfolk.



If you have EZ Pass, using the HOT lanes around DC works well.



We have also stayed at Carolina Crossroads. Very nice place.



Safe travels,


BC

No one recommended it so I will suggest it. By pass most of 95 altogether. Go down 81 instead until 77 South, then 26 East back to 95 about 90 miles north of Savannah. Beautiful route with a LOT less traffic and only one major city (Charlotte) on it. First stop could be the KOA at Natural Bridges (literally right off of 81) or in Wytheville which is right where 77 intersects.

Used to take the 77-26-95 to Savannah when my son was stationed at Ft Stewart. I will warn you, that section of 95 can be slow going on a major holiday weekend or spring break. We drove down over a long weekend in the spring and it was literally stop and go all the way from the 26/95 interchange to the GA state line just north of Savannah.

or he could get a personal recommendation from someone on here who has bee to the park? Sites sometimes look good on line and you get there and it's not what it's said to be.

My vote this way took basically this route heading back from NE and stopped at the Natural Bridge KOA like mentioned right off highway and gas station right at the entrance into the CG to fill up. Nice CG we got the new sites which fit our Big Rig without issues.

No one mentions prices on these places?? An overnight stay of 6-8 hrs can be pricey I would think.

This is the route we took to Point South KOA then Disney’s Fort Wilderness the next day.

Not sure if you’re looking for a campground or just a place to stop for the night. If looking for a place to just spend the night Kenly 95 is a great stopover. Right at the exit from 95 in Kenly , NC. Separate parking for RVs away from trucks. Fuel food and showers if you need them. Very clean.
Safe travels

Spending the night on the road at a camping "resort" makes little economic sense and public area like the infamous Walmart parking lots are, in my my estimate, not safe especially with my Roo hybrid. State parks are our chosen places for these stops. Electric is nice and we usually have enough fresh water on board and the waste tanks have been barely used.
