Places to stop between Hershey PA and Marietta GA?

In August we will be travelling from Hershey PA to Marietta GA. In looking at the map it looks like 81 is the most direct route. We are looking for things to do along the way as we are leaving Hershey on Sunday, and don't need to be in GA until Thursday. Any Suggestions for things to do or see? Any great campgrounds along the way?

When we leave Marietta we have a week to get back to Jersey, Any thoughts of places to go from Atlanta, maybe a good beach resort?

Thanks.

I always stay at the KOA in Staunton Virginia. Its a nice overnight place with things to do for the kids and a good general store. Things get interesting in North Carolina with the Vanderbilt Estate, Blowing Rock and Boone having a number of things to do. Don't attempt the Blue Ridge Parkway in a motorhome.

If you haven't been, you might want to consider a visit to Sevier County TN as it has lots to do and something for about every one. From the exit on I-81, it's about 10 miles to Sevierville, 10 more to Pigeon Forge, and another 10 to Gatlinburg and the entrance to the Smoky Mountain NP. Near the exit you will find a Bass Pro Shop, minor league baseball, campgrounds, etc. Then from there clear through Pigeon Forge and again in Gatlinburg, it is a tourist mecca. The campgounds in Pigeon Forge are generally older than those in Sevierville. Hope this helps.

Thanks for the suggestion. We stayed a week in that area last summer. It was a wonderful trip, but we are looking to do something different this year. Just to mention too, Anchor Down in Dandrige TN, right on Douglas Lake was one of the most beautiful campgrounds we have stayed at so far!

Thank you. I will look into Blowing Rock and Boone.

Our FMCA club had a rally at Anchor Down in late April and I believe it's the nicest place we've stayed as well.

I have never been (or camped) there, but I know there are a few campgrounds near Natural Bridge in VA and I have heard it is an interesting place to visit from those who have been there. We have stayed a few times for an overnight at Fort Chiswell RV Park near Wythville, VA. Nice place to plug in and relax if you need a break...We really didn't care for the KOA in that same area.

I have driven some parts of the Blue Ridge Parkway with our previous Thor ACE. It wasn't too bad, but it was only 10-15 miles (in VA) and I really took my time...had to follow some folks on bicycles up a hill as I couldn't find a place where I could see well enough to get around them. I'd be OK with not driving it again !

Lots of great beaches along the coast to pick from...mostly depends on what you are looking for in a beach...
