RE: Twelfth Annual RV.net Class B Rally (B12)

Really looks like a fun time. Big job putting time and effort into organizing the events, location, reservations, and food! Thanks again, you two.

RE: Twelfth Annual RV.net Class B Rally (B12)

Hi Harold and Jackie...I was looking at the Four Paws website today and they have a lot of great info now on their Events page for the dates of the B rally. Looks like you made a great choice for a rally location, based on the food descriptions alone! (Our dog was already excited about going there.)

RE: Pleasure Way

I've never owned one, but they have an excellent reputation for class B RVs.

RE: Be careful if you go to America Choice Rv in Ocala, FL

For future reference, Ocala Freightliner has a big service department right next to I-75 at Hwy 326. Not far from 301, either.

RE: Emerald Isle suggestions and routing

If we were to relocate, Cape Carteret would be our choice. The little town of Cedar Point is right next to it. Love the homes there too Agree, and both are in Carteret County and the same school system. (Next town is Swansboro, but in Onslow County.)

RE: Emerald Isle suggestions and routing

Come on down, Effy. You heard right about the Cape C school system, and there are nice homes at reasonable prices on the water side of Hwy 24. Good medical care, no traffic. Send me a private message if any questions - we relocated here 8 years ago.

RE: Yelowstone - Fishing Bridge Campground - Using a crock pot

Ask the nice people that work in the FB office about any recent concerns. It is for sure the bear part of the park, and as you know that's why soft-sided campers can't stay there. But campers were allowed to cook on their own charcoal grill at the site outside when we were there in 2013. A crockpot inside seems fine.

RE: Emerald Isle suggestions and routing

Cedar Point Campground in Croatan National Forest is across the Hwy 58 Bridge from E.I. and just a couple of miles inland. Electric hookups, very woodsy. It was closed for many months while the NFS has worked on the dump station, but I think is open now for camping. Bring your senior pass if you are 62+ for discounted camping. Reserve America Cedar Point CG NC You might want to call the ranger office to find out the status of water and dump. NFS link Nice place for easy hikes on a boardwalk trail over the marsh. Lots of kayaking opportunities. Shopping center with Lowes grocery and Lowes hardware, banks, Walgreens, etc. is nearby. There is public parking over on E.I. for some fee like $10 a day not too far after you cross the bridge. There is also the largest boat launching ramp park in the state of North Carolina on the island now if you trailer a boat.

RE: Florida state parks B class in tent sites

Just wanted to provide an update. Our wonderful B was perfect for the tent site at Long Key state park. Thoroughly enjoyed this park. The staff is just excellent!!! Took some wonderful photos but haven't taken the time to download them so far. That's great, Arvie - it's a special place. How big is your B? By the way, tent sites have been taken out of service for the future. Also seems as though many more sites are listed as 25’ maximum now. Good for class Bers.

RE: Ft. Desoto

We were there last month, and I recall seeing people fishing from the campground. You can also keep kayaks at your site and launch from there. There is a watersports concession in the park with bait for sale, kayak and bike rentals - google water sports rental Ft. DeSoto and you'll find it. They have a store inside the campground just past the entrance. It's a big park. The campground has a sea wall around it and it is not a swim area. You drive or bike to swim from the beautiful sand beach on the Gulf of Mexico. I think there is a fishing pier over there, too. There are boat trips to an offshore island. The kids will probably enjoy the old fort with cells and places to climb up. There's also an old Quartermaster Museum. You can see some interesting wading birds, often strolling through your own site. You know your children best - I would have loved it as a kid just for the beach alone, but there aren't game arcades, movies, amusement park rides, etc. there or close by.

RE: Wiliamsburg KOA

We don't have a toad....is there transportation from American Heritage campground to the attractions? I don't recall that option from a stay last summer.

RE: Oregon Coast Suggestions-North from Redwoods in CA

How about visiting some of the lighthouses? Get a copy of the tide tables, pick a low tide, and investigate some of the tide pools. The Oregon SP's have great CG's. Great info, thanks so much for those links. I saved to Dropbox. Thanks to all also for the campground info. Hope to get to Oregon some year.

RE: Florida CG near beach and bike path

I may reserve Dunedin and then see if I can get into Fort Desoto when the 6mo window opens up, any idea how fast sites would go for in Nov? Topsail still has plenty and it's popular so I figure I could get one but have no idea. Great ideas! Mark your calendar for the six month reserve point - pick a weekday arrival and you shouldn't have a problem getting a site in November unless it's Thanksgiving. Study the campground map ahead of time - note that there are sections - Area One is tents, vans, popups only. Area Two, sites 86-164, is the dog section, if you travel with a pup. Areas two and three are "designed and equipped to accommodate all camping units." The park is popular with local folks (day trippers and campers) who especially book up the weekends and holidays. We were next to a batch of party-people once around spring break time. I've seen a lot of people biking there on the paved trail to the beaches. Don't miss the little museum near the fort that tells about the place and its history.

RE: First RV Trip Out Of State

Southern Utah is so rich in excellent National Parks and State Parks, you could concentrate on the southern half of the state and never see it all. There are campgrounds inside the parks (book early) and commercial ones outside. Two great resources I've used the most are Fodor's Guide to Utah, and the AAA Indian Country Guide Map, both available on Amazon. Bryce Canyon was my favorite for the spectacular scenery, and it's at a higher elevation than some are and therefore cooler on hot summer days. At Bryce, you can walk the top of a canyon, looking down at the natural amphitheater. Zion is the reverse, since you are in the bottom of the canyon looking up. Both are really popular and offer free shuttles so you don't need to drive, with many free ranger activities. Around Moab in southeastern Utah, you can see Arches and Canyonlands NPs, Dead Horse Point State Park, and more. Then there is Goblin Valley SP, Capitol Reef, NP...lots of National Forest area, the list goes on and on.

RE: Florida CG near beach and bike path

Have you ever stayed at Fort DeSoto at the foot of Tampa Bay? I feel like a cheerleader because I seem to recommend it often, but it does offer biking opportunities. It is operated by Pinellas County. The park is made up of five interconnected keys, with an attractive campground that has many sites with water views. The Gulf side beach is absolutely beautiful, and the historic fort is interesting to walk through. You can reserve six months ahead (seven months for Pinellas County residents.) Info on Fort DeSoto
