RE: Florida panhandle Camping

We've stayed at Big Lagoon SP twice now and loved it. It's within minutes of the Perdido Key where we had the beach to ourselves most days.

RE: Camping w/o water hookup help needed

We fill the fresh tank on arrival, use a blue tote to take grey water away, and replenish the fresh tank using 6 gallon containers. The black tank will last about 5-7 days before it needs to be dumped.

RE: Campground toward Ann Arbor, MI, area

Thanks for all of the suggestions. Now can't go because of family commitments. Hopeful we can reschedule for July. If you do reschedule, Waterloo RA in Chelsea would work.

RE: Favorite Campground near Smokey Mountains

We had a site right on the river at the KOA in Townsend and would stay there again. We were within an hour of all the hikes and drives that we wanted to do which was great!

RE: Camping in Cody, WY

We visited Cody for the rodeo but I wouldn't want to do that drive daily. I have info on our Yellowstone trip in my signature.

RE: Pigeon Forge, Run down and dirty?

I respect differences of opinion among Rvers but to me, an area like that is everything I don't want when I go for a trip in the RV. I want nature, peaceful, and ranger programs about the natural features or history of the area, not touristy stuff. It is a place I have to get through in order to get into the national park. x2 for us too There are many people that want to do the mini golf, shopping for shot glasses, and getting a bright t-shirt thing and call it a vacation. Those people will love what PF and GB have become.

RE: post pictures of your HTT

Our new Roo. First camping trip tomorrow! We're looking at this exact combo. What are your experiences with towing with the Explorer? Are you going up/down and mountains? What are your weights like? My sister inlaw has a similar set up with a small Jayco hybrid and they're very happy with the combo. They did a trip through the smoky mountains (hills) and did fine.

RE: Free or low cost beach camping...?

loulou57, Not going to argue with you or wiki but you might want to look at Google Maps starting at Calumet Harbor, Indiana and go north along Lake Michigan on the Michigan side for nearly 300 miles and notice it's a sugar sand golden white beach all the way until there's some rock and bolders from Leland north! One very long continous beach! You can go in on Google Maps and even see the people laying in the sun on the extremely long beach. I don't know exactly when (M/D/Y) or time of day the satellite photos used were taken but judging from the very lately built homes and buildings I see, it has to be just in the last few years. The little 2 and 3 notes by the "wiki claims" say it's from the Ontario Parks website - Ministry of Natural Resources (Ontario). Might be a tourism claim for canada but it's not factual for the world as many other sand beaches are so much longer on freshwater shores. Canadians are our close friends and we have many of them who come to the Lake Michigan beaches where we live every year who live on the east side of the "Blue Water Bridge" at Port Huron, MI - Sarnia, Ont. East and north (Goderich and Collingwood) Simcoe cty, etc and come all the way across our state (over 200 miles just in Michigan) to get to the Lake Michigan Lakeshore Beaches. Never heard them mention Wasaga Beach once and it's right in their backyard! I will be asking them about it and why they don't just go to Wasaga Beach as it's only miles away. I understand what you are saying. I think where you are getting confused is that the shoreline of Michigan has many beaches that have different names. If you google longest beaches in the world, every site will agree with my initial post. Michigan boasts the largest sand dune system on a fresh water lake. These are not posts made by the Ministry of Natural Resources. As you say yourself, your coastline is made up of many beaches. Those combined make a very long shoreline. I am quoting individually named beaches. I even googled, longest beaches in Michigan and came up with the same answer. We are not going to agree on this , that is fine. I am going only by written facts. If you feel this is a tourist ploy check out USA Today travel tips, Readers Digest, they agree. It sounds like Wasaga is the longest named beach whereas Lake Michigan offers the longest shoreline with sand. I sure wouldn't want to have to meet friends at Wasaga while dragging a cooler... "where are you guys? we're at wasaga beach near the uh water." OP: good luck with that

RE: Niagara Falls

Find a CG you like and make it work. Members in the CA forum can help. When we stayed in CA one year for a different trip, we grocery shopped over there bc I grew tired of reading can and can'ts online. For the falls, we stayed on the US side at the state park and made small trips. We liked almost everything on the CA side better but found some things to do on the US side too. There is a cool hike on the US side near the whirlpool, we toured power plant, ate ice cream in Youngstown, and chilled at a pretty nice CG. I'd recommend avoiding the aquarium on the US side - soooo many better ones around.

RE: Primetime Lacrosse 2014

Sounds like the company is having growing pains. Ours was built in their first year I believe. Assuming they've kept the staff over the years, the guys I dealt with to get questions answered jumped through hoops for me. Hopefully this is just a very small percentage of units, but if not, I'm hoping they pull it together in time for our next TT.

RE: GTNP & Yellowstone NP Camping

We spent a week at Colter Bay in Tetons this past summer. A great place. Not a far drive to Yellowstone.I guess I wouldn't call a 3+ hour round trip to Lower Geyser Basin, 4+ hours to Canyon or Norris Geyser Basin, or 5+ hours to Mammoth a "not far drive". Unless you want to spend your vacation commuting, get a camp spot in or near each park. x3 There is soooo much to see in each area that you'd be looking from a car window if you didn't relocate. Check my trip report link for more area info.

RE: HEY we need a sticky for our TT pics!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Those big SUVs do well with towing big heavy trailers Weight isn't really the issue .. it's the length leading to sway that would concern me. We towed our current TT with an expy and no matter how much I adjusted, I always had sway. The OP has stated numerous times that the combo works for them. The people piling on need to move on already.

RE: Website to search for TT by features?

This dealer has a nice search tool. Obviously, you're limited to the product lines they carry, but they're pretty large and it's a start.

RE: ~Post your campsite photos here~

We spent our time in Colter Bay eating and sleeping .. I wouldn't worry about the lack of space. Location, location, location plus a gorgeous lake view.

RE: Bad Lands in SD were to stay

We stayed at Custer SP as a base camp and would do the same in the future.

RE: New Michigan St Park etc & boat slip reservation system

LOVE the idea of adding photos like so many state parks around the country do. Besides that, I never had a problem with the current system. The idea of searching multiple campgrounds for a date sounds intriguing.

RE: Primetime Lacrosse 2014

That's too bad to hear. We've had almost the exact opposite experience and when we were shopping around, I read nothing but positive reviews. I'm not sure why people leave their units at a dealer while waiting for parts or to be fixed. If it were me, I'd throw some duct-tape or a tarp over the area and get out there camping until I was told it was ready. It doesn't usually take a place very long to make repairs - what 2 or 3 days for a big project. Either way, I hope all your issues are behind you and you'll have a great time in it for years to come!
