Anybody been to Aberdeen Proving Grounds? We are headed south from Foxboro, Ma via I84 to I81. Want to stay off I95. Any hints?

As far as Rving, no help. But they do have an awesome display of Military equipment including the Atomic Cannon and the German Rail Gun that couldn't be destroyed. Check out the history of Tracked Vehicles while there.

APG itself has little to offer as far as a FAMCAMP goes. The one time I check when living close by, all I found was a small parking area by the water which would be too small for the average Class A. You might contact the Post Military Police and ask about boon docking in the PX or Commissary parking lot. Elk Neck State park, several miles to the east has received many favorable reviews but I can't speak for it personally. There is also a Flying J between I-95 and Northeast to consider for an overnight.

My Dad ended up in Europe a month after the war ended. Here are 3 photos of a couple German rail guns. My Dad is the fellow on the left in the second photo.

Campgrounds in that part of Maryland are almost non-existant. There is one in Elkton called Woodlands Camp Resort. DO NOT GO THERE. It is the pits and overpriced at that. Mostly permanents and mostly unfriendly.

Better off travelling down to Cherry Hill CG, south of Baltimore.

Yes! Officer Advanced Course 1977-1978.
Don't think that was what you were looking for but I was there.

Anyway to your question which I think had to do with getting there vs camping there. Wanting to stay off I95, I'll assume you also mean avoiding the Tappanzee Bridge, Garden State Parkway and NJ Turnpike. If so and staying all Interstate isn't a must, you might consider getting off I84 in Matamoras (PA209) and head towards Stroudsburg, then Allentown, to Reading, to Lancaster and then south towards APG.

Was there last summer. They were talking about moving it to an other army base. My dog got out while the M Ps checked out my rig. Ran after some ground hogs and almost got me a ticket. Told the M P that the ground hogs looked fat and needed a little run, they didn't like that. Call before you go to see if it will be open.

I was at APG in 1958 and again in 1960 for automotive schools. The military displays are awesome but I would imagine things have changed some in 50 years lol. I saw the 250MM atomic cannon and the German rail guns back then and it's a sight to see. I also found out then the MP's had no sense of humor.

Wal Mart is your best bet. Not much in that area. 1 hour away is Lancaster PA. Campgrounds there.
