Summer planning in Southeast and Northeast

In 2015, the Mrs. & I will be traveling from May through Sept. We like staying from 1- 4 weeks at places, depending on what's to see/experience. We'd welcome any suggestions on reasonably priced campgrounds or state/national parks in any of the following states: S/N Carolina; Tennessee, W.Virginia/Virginia; Eastern Penn.; Maine; Nova Scotia. We're in a 2010 40 ft. diesel pusher with 4 slides and towing. Full hook ups are certainly preferred but not absolutely necessary for a week's stay somewhere. Also on board is an inflatable 12 ft. sea eagle pontoon boat with elec. trolling motor so water availability is nice but not required.

Thanks,
Larry

Hi Larry,
In the NC mountains, we love to camp at Lake Powhatan (federal campground) by Asheville. They have a lake for swimming but no boating.
In Maine, we loved the Camden Hills State Park.
In Virginia, Pohick Bay Regional Park is very nice.
South Carolina has great state parks (Myrtle Beach State Park, Hunting Island, Edisto - too many!)
Have fun planning!

Bar Harbor region of Maine is nice. Lot to see both north and south if you are staying there for a week or two and exploring in the toad. Acadia NP, a must do. Beware summer crowds, reservations recommended. Eastport and Lubec, Maine are nice also, near the Canadian border. We stayed in Blackwoods CG, in Acadia NP. Not sure your coach would fit. We were fine with 31 ft and Jeep toad. Wild Duck Adult CG is in southern Maine, Scarborough on a huge salt marsh and near bike trail. Check out Shores Hill in Boothbay also.

Cool Virginia State Parks

I have stayed at Pocahontas state park just south of Richmond. It is a lovely park with very nice sites.$30/night. Richmond is worth a day or two. Also Sea Shore state park in Virginia Beach has lovely beaches and lots to see and do in the area. The sites are nice, many literally over the dune from the beach.

Calhoun Falls State Park, near Calhoun Falls, SC, is one of the best lakeside facilities I have seen.

My wife and I loved Tuckaseegee RV Resort - on US 74 near Cherokee, SC.

James Island County Park, near Charleston, SC is another great place to stay.

It will be hard to get a spot at any of these unless you make reservations.

If you get to northern Maine try Sunset Pt. C.G. in Harrington, not to be mistaken for another by the same name in Lubec. The owner will cook and deliver lobster to your door for $7 per lb.
