I was flying on east heading receiving VFR advisories from ZDC. ATC advised me my aircraft was approaching camp david, just as I was adopting a more northeast heading. A short time later the controller informed me I was 3 mi north of camp david area. I replied I was turning directly north to keep an adequate sep from the camp david area. I think this is a good example of how VFR pilots can work with center to stay out of restr areas. However, VFR pilots should not rely on center to keep them out of restr areas.

Title: GA SMA UNAUTH PENETRATION OF AIRSPACE.
Narrative: I WAS FLYING ON E HDG RECEIVING VFR ADVISORIES FROM ZDC. ATC ADVISED ME MY ACFT WAS APCHING CAMP DAVID, JUST AS I WAS ADOPTING A MORE NE HDG. A SHORT TIME LATER THE CTLR INFORMED ME I WAS 3 MI N OF CAMP DAVID AREA. I REPLIED I WAS TURNING DIRECTLY N TO KEEP AN ADEQUATE SEP FROM THE CAMP DAVID AREA. I THINK THIS IS A GOOD EXAMPLE OF HOW VFR PLTS CAN WORK WITH CENTER TO STAY OUT OF RESTR AREAS. HOWEVER, VFR PLTS SHOULD NOT RELY ON CENTER TO KEEP THEM OUT OF RESTR AREAS.
