Hi Russ,

Georgetown is the County Seat of Sussex County and is a beautiful town with narrow streets.

With what your drivin', I would take any other East-West highway to get over to Route 1 on your way to 3 Seasons and try to avoid Georgetown.

I understand this is the last year for 3 Seasons as a campground as the property has been sold for real estate development.

Too bad as it's a great place with hands on ownership. If you like seafood, be sure to go to Big Fish Grill about 2 miles south of 3 Seasons on Rt 1.

Dave

Route 16 north of Georgetown is a popular bypass. It's been quite a while since I've traveled that road, but I believe it will work for you. Watch your speed in all the small towns especially Greenwood if you take route 16.

If you want to sound like a local, it's pronounced "Jargetown".

Traveling from Baltimore area to 3 Seasons @ Rehoboth, DE this weekend. Route will be Bay Bridge to 404. Any issues with Georgetown? I will be in a 39 Ft w/toad. I know there is a circle there but do not know if there is a bypass for the whole town?

Thanks,

Russ

RVrs R US & Route 66, Thanks for the info. I am mapping the route 16 by pass 'even as we speak'! I have driven through 'Jargetown' in a car an am aware that it is a picturesque town (which is why I go through).

My wife and I have never been to 3 Seasons but during the years we shopped for our first RV (this is it) we did have the opportunity to meet the owners at a show. They were very nice and helpful and we wanted to get down before it was no longer an option.

I will watch out for local speed limits, as always, in any small town but I appreciate the warning!

Thanks,

Russ

Russ:

If you want to avoid the "rotary", "circle" (or whatever it's called in your neck of the woods), you can follow US-113 south to Truck US-9 east.

From 404 east, make a right onto US-113 south. It will become Truck US-9 east/US-113 south after you pass the US-9 intersection. Truck US-9 takes you south of Georgetown and connects back up with US-9 east of town. I have taken both the the normal route through town and the truck route with my TT. There doesn't seem to be much difference in time either way.

You'll enjoy 3 Seasons. We camped there for nearly a week last year. Take the bus to Rehoboth Beach (it comes right to the campgraound). Parking and traffic in downtown Rehoboth can be frustrating. On-street parking is metered and the police have a national pastime of writing parking tickets as soon as the time runs out.

Frank, Thanks. I looked at that route but the map I have looks like US 9 goes right back through town? Maybe I need a new Delaware State Map? Perhaps one that shows 'Truck Routes'? I really am just trying to stay out of the circle on a Saturday morning. I will be towing so no backing up!

Thanks for the info. I'll try to get some better reference material!
