Don't go too far north, most of Maine is pine trees. Reservations would indeed be recommended, hard to find CG's after Columbus day. Many federal and state CG's close after Labor Day, the farther north, the earlier they close.

If you need to, in Freeport, Maine you can overnite in the LL Bean parking lot.

And thanks Allan for starting this thread. I will be reading carefully as I plan our route from Texas. We are leaving shortly after 9/22 (our grandsons birthday) and headed north. Our plan right now is to take a more western route north through Kentucky, Ohio and western NY and an eastern route through the Smokeys on the return. We are fortunate in that my wife's brother lives outside Manchester, NH so we already have our reservations for driveway camping. It will be the farthest north we venture and will be our base from which to explore the surrounding areas.

PS: At Millinocket, Maine, you can enter Baxter State Park, which is run under a charter that it never be improved or modernized, since Gov. Baxter donated it to the state a hundred years ago and so, it remains perhaps the best eastern wilderness experience there is. Happy camping!

We could go in April when there is availability, but then it is starting to get a bit warm....

BTW: We love the plans you are making....we will be going that route in 2017.

Not having been to Death Valley before I was vacillating between Furnace Creek (the only campground with reservations) and Texas Spring (no reservations and also no generators). In January I was able to find a site with a string of 4 nights available so I went with that for the security of having a site when we arrived.

We will be there from 3/13 until 3/17 at Furnace Creek site 44. If you are in the vicinity please come by and say hello.

With regards to the New England journey next Fall we are considering entering Canada from Minnesota and traveling through to Nova Scotia. Any suggestions or comments about that route would be welcome.

If your plans include Acadia National Park in Maine, look into staying at he "new part" that just opened. It is East of the well known part of the park, actually more on the mainland, as opposed to the island. Brand spanking new, and less well known, and of course has the senior rate.
