Class A on New York Hwy 3

We are in a 38ft class A pulling a 15 ft. motorcycle trailer. We will travel from Merry Knoll campground in Clayton to North Pole Campground in Wilmington. People at North Pole said come over NY Hwy 3 Through Adirondack Park. This goes through Tupper Lake, to Saranac Lake. Has anybody been through that route? We are 52 or 53 feet from head to tail. I'm willing to go around to I-87.

I traveled that exact route, in 2009, after I left Niagra Falls. We stayed in "Association Island RV Resort & Marina", in Henderson, NY, which was a great CG, right on Lake Ontario. Drove on through Watertown, along the route #3 you mentioned, to North Pole CG. I have a 39' Fleetwood and was towing a Toyota, on a dolly. I had no problems. It was an enjoyable trip, for us. From North Pole, we went on to Port Kent, NY and took the Ferry over Lake Champlain, to Vermont. From Burlington, VT, went on to Nova Scotia, Canada. It was a great trip, with lots of memories!

I made the trip from Watertown to Tupper Lake, stayed a few nights, then continued on. I did not go completely across on highway 3, but took other routes down through the Adirondacks in my 40 ft DP towing a Saturn Vue. The roads were great. We enjoyed the ride through the park. We were able to reserve a large pull through at Tupper Like, Little Wolf city park. It was nice. My reason for visiting TL - my father was born there.

Even thou I don't have a MH, that route is very nice.

But one word of caution: If for some reason you decided to do a return trip in the Southern Adirondack Park near Lake George to Utica on route 8 "don't do it" The road is narrow especially over bridges and many chuck holes near the edge of the road. Thought I would save some time going from Ohio to VT. But in the end I had to pay very close attention to the road ahead even with only a 8' wide tt.

Thanks for the info. Hwy 3 it is. We are in Niagra Falls now and just off two days on the road. These two weeks will pass too quickly. Wish we had time to do more. We will certainly avoid Hwy 8!
