We're going to be traveling through West Virginia along I77 from Blue Ridge Parkway up toward Akron / Cleveland. We'd like to stop along the way for an afternoon & night somewhere not too far off of I77. It looks like Charleston, WV would be about the 1/2 way point.
We had been planning to stay at Kanawah State Forest again, as we stayed there once 10 years ago and loved it. But after calling them to make our reservations, they have told us that our new camper is too big to get in. So now, we're stuck looking for a new campground.
We'd like something like a state park, CoE, or similar park, and prefer to have electricity. We'd love something in the mountains, with nice light hiking around.
Anyone have a good recommendation?
We're finding that many of these places are booked up. We have narrowed our search down to something a bit north of Ashville along the parkway.
Has anyone stayed at The Bear Den Campground?
Bear Den Campground?
Does anyone know of a place that I can get my truck & camper get weighed in or near St Petersburg, FL?
The closest place that I'm aware is the TA truckstop over off of I4 on the other side of Seffner. I hate to drive all that way.
I'm hoping someone on here knows someplace closer. Someplace free would be nice too!
Thanks for all of the awesome responses! I think we're going to try the Jellystone near Gatlinburg. Our kids really love the Jellystone parks (except the one in Florida).
One site picked, 8 more weeks worth to choose!
We are working on plans for our summer trip. We will be spending several days in the Gatlinburg, TN area in mid June. After that we'll be making our way toward Cleveland, OH.
We will have several days to make that trip. We are looking for recommendations for places to stay along the way. We'd like something like a state or national park, with lots of nature, hiking, great views, etc, not just an RV park. Maybe Skyline Drive or BlueRidge Parkway?
We stayed at Kanawha state forest years ago and really enjoyed that, not sure we can fit with the bigger camper now.
We will be on a long trip with our younger kids, and staying at RV parks for much of it, but want to really get them some time camping closer to nature some as well.
Any input and suggestions are appreciated.
What is your favorite campground in the Smokey Mountain area, maybe near Gatlinburg, TN? Our only requirement is that it has WIFI and / or an excellent Cellular signal.
I have to work from "home" for a day or two on our next trip, and am hoping to be in this area.
We will have our 3 kids with us, 7 & under, who will need plenty of activities during the day.
