RE: favorite campground

Pipestem Resort State Park in West Virginia has almost everything you could want. Sites with full hookups,golf,mini gold,horseback riding,archery,nature walks, indoor and outdoor pools, 2 restaurants,cabins, lodges etc. We also enjoyed Buck Creek Lake State Park in Ohio has sites with electric, a nice lake with swimming beaches,nice camp store,laundry etc. Lot's of room between sites. Sherando Lake and Goose Point in Virginia are very nice. Both have electric hookups, a lake with swimming beach. Some of the sites at Goose Point are right on the water. We also loved Huntington Beach State Park in South Carolina. Most sites have water and electric but they also have some full hookup sites.It is a short walk to the beach and they have a great nature program. Atallya, the house where the Huntington's lived is open for tours and you are close to Murrels Inlet where there are some very good restaurants like Drunken Jacks.

RE: Ohio to Orlando Fl via I-75

Have fun driving around Atlanta. If you are looking for a stop over, High Falls State Park Riverside Campground isn't too far off I-75. They have water and electric hookups,many pull off sites and laundry.

RE: Tub Run formerly COE campground

We stayed at a Forest Service campground in West Virginia that was privately run. It was well kept and the prices were in line with other forest service campgrounds. I never heard of a COE campground being privately run. But what really jumped out at me was the price of $48 a night. That's alot higher than any COE or other Federal Camgrounds we have stayed at.

RE: favorite campground

We live in Ohio, but camp in Indiana State Parks quite a bit. Find them preferable to Ohio SP. Really? We have stayed in one State Park in Indiana, Lincoln Boyhood. It was ok. But we have stayed at 2 Ohio state parks, Punderson and Buck Creek Lake. We thought both of them were very nice.

RE: Route with the least mountains

I -10 is too far south. I would do I-40 to Nashville. After leaving Nashville, I would continue on I-40 to I-75 north to I-64 east to I-79 which will take you to Pittsburg. I have been on all of those roads and they are all pretty decent.

RE: Planning an extended trip, looking for advice.

I agree on Yellowstone.We were there in May and it was the best trip we ever had. We were in the park for 4 days but could have easily done 6. There is so much to see and it's huge. We stayed in Madison Campground. No hookups. Mammoth Campground looked like the sites were a little more spread out. Madison was more centrally located but there was nothing close to the campground. At Mammoth you are right outside the Village of Mammoth Hot Springs which has a few places to eat,a visitor center and gas. You are also close to Gardiner Montana for groceries,gas and dining. Black Hills area is nice too. Custer State Park is nice. Several campground some with electric hookups. Not too far from The Badlands and Wall Drug. We also liked Bear Country USA and The Cosmos. From there I would head east.Many nice state parks to camp along the way. Most have electric hookups some as low as $16 a night. Each state is different as to their campgrounds but most are nice. We stayed at Waubonsi SP in Iowa for $16 a night with electric.Also Pershing State Park in Missouri for $19 a night with electric. Pershing is located on Missouri Rt 36 which is a great alternative to I-70.4 lane and 65 mph. We also stayed at Buck creek State Park just east of Dayton,Ohio off I-70. Beautiful park with electric and swimming beach. You are close to the Air Force Museum if you like planes. Keep going east to Gettysburg. We like Pine Grove Furnace State Park, about $26 a night with electric about 25 miles from Gettysburg.From there I would go to Assateague National Park. No hookups but the wild horses will come right into your campsite. Go to as many ranger programs as you can. From there head south to Shennadoah National park. Stay at either Big Meadows of Loft Mtn. The head south on Blue Ridge Parkway. I would recommend Sherando Lake, a national forest campground with electric hookups. Keep heading south to Goose Point Campground. They have some nice sites in loop C, some right on the water. From there I would head towards Myrtle Beach and stay at Huntington Beach State Park. Most sites are water and electric with some full hookups. Short walk to the beach.Visit Attalaya which is where the Huntington's lived who the park as named after. They also have great nature programs there. You are close to Murrels Inlet where you have some good restaurants like Drunken Jacks. From there you can head to Florida and the keys. Curry Hammock State Park is nice with sites on the water with water and electric hookups.Have a great time.

Tub Run formerly COE campground

For years I wanted to visit this campground and was researching it for a trip next year when I came across an article stating the COE has leased this campground to a private company for 25 years. This is disturbing. Does anyone know of other COE campgrounds that have done this? It looks like their rates about doubled with the new company that runs it. http://www.lrp.usace.army.mil/Media/News-Stories/Article/586720/a-new-partnership-starts-at-tub-run-campground/

RE: Need to park it for a long time (just venting).

Why not take some shorter vacations? We go to places that are within 2 or 2 hours of home. If you can leave on a Friday after work and stay until Tuesday,that way you only use 2 days of vacation time but have 4 days of playtime. That's a little better than letting the camper sit for 4 or 5 years.

RE: Travel Trailer Cover? Good/Bad Idea?

We have used covers in the past, but they didn't seem to last more than 3 years and they let the water and snow go through the cover leaving the roof very dirty. So for the past 6 years,we have used a 30 x 20 ft tarp. It works better than any cover we ever had and it doesn't leave dirt trapped on the roof like the covers did. We don't hold it down using the grommets. We use 2" strapping we bought at the local hardware store. You can cut it to length and they have latches to connect the 2 ends together.We use the straps over every year. Then we use ropes through the end grommets and tie them together to keep the wind from getting under the tarp. The tarps cost around $80 and usually only last one year. But the covers were over $300 and only lasted 3 years so we come out ahead with the tarps and the trailer stays cleaner than with the covers.

RE: Salton induction cooktop

How many amps does the unit draw? Are you plugging it into a 15 or 20 amp circuit at home? What is the rating of the circuit on the RV you are plugging it into? And,is there anything else on that circuit?

RE: Land Between The Lakes Nat. Rec. Area

We have stayed twice at Canal Campground. They have some full hookups and some water and electric. Some sites are right on the water so you can watch the barge traffic go by. I believe it is an Army Corps of Engineer Campground. http://www.recreation.gov/camping/canal/r/campgroundDetails.do?contractCode=NRSO&parkId=71067 http://henryandbethstravels.blogspot.com/2009/10/canal-campground-grand-lakes-kentucky.html

RE: Atlanta construction

I agree with the others. Do anything to avoid Atlanta. I pulled through there twice, 20 years apart. Once at 11pm and once at 4:30 am. I thought by avoiding the daytime it would be better. It wasn't.

RE: Levi Jackson & All Other Kentucky SPs; Never Again!

We have stayed at 2 Kentucky State parks, Carter Caves and Boonesboro. At Carter Caves, some of the sites are way off level, but the majority are fine. I don't remember any problem in Boonesboro. I will say in many state parks, there are sometimes issues with the way the entrance to many sites are laid out. Many times the site itself will accomodate your trailers length, but it's difficult to get that size trailer into the site because of the angle of the site from the road,because of narrow road ways,trees,posts,rocks etc. The same holds true for many federal campgrounds. We were in Yellowstone in May. The site were given was a pull through. We had no problem getting in, but we could not pull through because of trees. We had to back out which was ok. But why have a pull through site if you can't pull through? I think the problem is the people who design these campgrounds don't have RV's and have no clue what it takes to get different types or RV's into a site.

RE: Terrible workmanship in our new trailer

Friends of our have a Forest River and they have had some problems too. We had 2 Sunlines and they were very well built but went out of business after 40 plus years. We now have a keystone Cougar.Luckily,no major problems but we did have to replace cabinet doors that fell off and replace shelf brackets that broke. So I guess most RV's have issues,some more than others.

RE: Suggestions for Georgia trip for December

We have stayed at both High Falls State Park and Georgia Veterans State Park. Both are close to I-75. They are nice and both are relatively close to Ft Benning which has a nice infantry museum, Columbus ,Ga with the Confederate naval Museum and Andersonville Civil War Prison.High Falls riverside campground has nice sites with good seperation. Some have back ins, some pull offs and all have water and electric hookups.
