West Virginia I-77

We are in North Carolina and are going to Ohio, is I-77 in West Virginia thru the mountains RV friendly or should I look at a different route?

I-77 is actually a bit easier than I-79. It's a bit winding through Charleston but it's not too bad all the way to Cleveland. Coming up through Fancy Gap is a bit of an experience coming from Charlotte, but I have taken 77 many times and really have no issue taking my RV on that road.

We have been on those roads in our coach many winters in all kinds of weather going from one ski area to another and never had a problem. Remember, I-77 is a toll highway south of Charleston, WV. and they only take cash and E-ZPass.

Before you leave NC, on the way up I77 stop off at Mt Airy. The Mayberry campground is very well kept and the "Andy Griffith" theme of downtown Mt Airy is pretty neat. A Porkchop sandwich at the Snappy Lunch will take you back to the 1950s.

I77 is the best route and very easy to drive. Good rest areas all along the WV Turnpike.

It is a nice drive and very RV friendly. You will encounter some steep winding road in West Virginia on the W.Va. Turnpike portion, but just slow down accordingly. In Beckley, the Tamarac Arts and Crafts center is worth a stop. It is right along the Interstate and has plenty of parking for RVers. The exit is well marked.
Marietta, Ohio is a great place to explore. It was the first permanent settlement in the northwest Territories. Lots of museums and historical buildings to see. Nice little artsey/craftsey downtown area too. Depending on how far north you go on I77, you could jump off I77 and go over to Sugarcreek, Ohio. A whole day or more can be spent looking around this Amish community. Great food available there in Sugarcreek.
