RE: Greenville, SC campgrounds - pros and cons

RE: Florida Camping: Where are your spots in the Sunshine State?

Several good State Parks in the pan handle and Keys. Most stay pretty busy so get your reservations in early.

RE: What Was She Thinking?

Hawaii had this law back in 1970 when I visited there courtesy of Uncle Sam. Pa has it for a few years at least. It's a good idea on streets where there is a low speed limit. But when it's 35mph or higher it is hard to stop.

RE: YellowStone

We were there in mid May. We stayed in Madison because it was one of 3 open and was centrally located. It was decent but there was no privacy between sites. And, there are no services there. Mammoth Hot Springs is in the northwest corner of the park.It appeared to have more privacy than Madison and there are services in Mammoth ,gas, food and things to see. Plus you are about 5 miles from Gardiner ,Mt where there is also gas, a grocery store and several restaurants.So maybe split your time between the 2. I would also recommend eating at the Old Faithful Inn.Beautiful building and good food. Meals from about $12 to $30.

RE: Trip Report: The Perfect Family Trip, Northwest 2016

You said middle states don't have much to look at. Well, I guess you don't know where to look. 20 years ago, we we're on our way to Yellowstone and the motor on our van blew up. We got it replace but it set us back 5 days. Then we took off and broke a spring on the trailer ,that set us back another day. So we ended up in Manhattan, Kansas. I looked in the AAA tour book. We found the Territorial Capitol building of Kansas. 2 Pony Express Museums, the Eisenhower Home, the Museum of Telephany and the Greyhound Museum.We finally made it to Yellowstone this year and on the way back, we stopped at the Harold Warp Pioneer Museum in Minden,Nebraska. Wow. If you like history, old cars,trucks,motorcycles or tractors, this is the place.You may want to buy a copy of Readers Digest book. I believe it is called "Off the Beaten Path". It shows you out of the way places in every state. While the national Parks are great,some of the small local museums are just wonderful.

RE: Yellowstone First Come Campgrounds

And,depending on your camper size, not every site available will fit you unit. We were in Yellowstone in mid May. We had reservations at Madison. We fit in the site we had reserved. But it was tight and even though it was a pull through,we had to back out of the site since trees on either side prevented us from driving out.

RE: Yellowstone Trip About To Begin

We were there in Mid May for 4 days. We could have used one or 2 more. Somethings weren't open at that time but it still was a good trip. We stayed in Madison Campground. There were only 3 open and Madison was the most centrally located. The weather was good,sunny and high 50's or low 60's. At night it dropped into the 40's or high 30's. I would suggest making reservations at the Old Faithful Inn. It's supposed to be the largest log structure in the world. The lobby is beautiful and the food was good. We saw a mother grizzly and 3 cubs on the road from Norris to Canyon.

RE: Best route Albany, ny to Myrtle Beach with TT

I swore I would never pull a trailer on the Baltimore Washington Beltway again. I would take I-88 to I-81 to I-66 to 17 and get on I-95 just north of Richmond. There is a Flying J on 81 near Winchester ,Virginia and another one on I-95 near Richmond.It's longer but no white knuckle driving like on the beltway.

RE: Yellowstone, Tetons, places to see grizzly, moose, wolves

We were there in mid May and saw a grizzly with 3 cubs on the road between Norris and Canyon. If you look on a map of Yellowstone, it would have been in the vicinity of Wolf Lake.

RE: Camping near Nashville

If you want to be squeezed in like sardines and pay alot, stay at one of the private campgrounds. If you want lots of room between sites in a nice setting by a lake and pay $26 a night,then 7 Points is the place. And if you're 62 or over and have the America the Bueatiful pass, it's half price.

RE: Camping near Rapid City, South Dakota

I just love it when people say you can't get into a campground. I have found as long as it's not a weekend,most campgrounds have openings. We usually like to come in on a Sunday and leave on a Wednesday or Thursday to beat the crowds. I usually can find an opening by doing that. I would agree Custer is a great place to stay. Lot's to see and do. be sure to check out the visitor centers, the Woldlife loop amd Iron Mountain Highway. Rafter J is also good and some areas that have the feel of a state park. But it's alot more expensive. I believe we stayed in the lower Ranch section. We were the second last site. It was really islolated from your neighbors.

RE: RV industry death spiral...

I believe you can still buy a good RV. But it's like anything else,you get what you pay for. We had 2 Sunlines and would have bought another if they hadn't gone out of business when they were sold right before the 2008 recession. They were well made and if there was a problem, they took care of it. We currently have a 2015 Keystone Cougar. We have about 10,000 miles on it and knock on wood, we have had no major problems. The problems we had were small and I fixed them myself. We had problems with the RV dealer, but that's another story. But this is a $30,000 camper. If you buy a $14,000 trailer they have to cut costs some where.We used to go to the RV show in Harrisburg,Pa and looked at the various manufacturers. Without naming names,we saw the lack of quality in some. So we made our decision based on our research and ended up with some very good units.

RE: Yellowstone Best in Late Spring or Fall?

We were in Yellowstone in mid May. Weather was great. Days high 50's and low 60's. Nights low 40's or high 30's. Sunshine every day. Crowds were low. Only one small buffalo jam. We stayed in Madison Campground which is pretty centrally located. Not everything was open,but enough to make it a great trip. We stayed 4 nights in the park. We saw a mother grizzly and 3 cubs on the road between Norris and canyon in the vicinity of Wolf Lake. We had dinner at the Old Faithful Inn. It is the largest log structure in the world.Beautiful lobby. The food was very good and ranged from $12 to $30.

RE: RV Camp Grounds

This is why we prefer state or federal parks. We went from Pa to Yellowstone and back. We paid $16 a night in Iowa, $19 in Missouri, $23 in Nebraska, $21 in Illinois and $26 in Ohio. All state parks,all had electric hookups ,all were very nice with room between sites. We also stayed at 2 private campgrounds. Both were decent. One was $34 a night for water and electric, the other was $49 a night for full hookups. Both were nice. The first one we were very close to our neighbors. The other had nice separation between sites.

RE: Yellowstone in September

It is 18 miles from West Yellowstone to Madison.Then another 18 miles to Old Faithful and I believe about 31 miles to Mammoth Hot Springs from Madison. Staying outside the park means alot of extra driving.Yellowstone is about as big as the state of Rode Island.

RE: Awning add a room

See who the manufacturer is and contact them.

RE: Yellowstone in September

We were there in May. There is cell service near Old Faithful and up near Mammoth Hot Springs. I have Sprint and my wife has Verizon. We both had cell service in those areas but she had data more often than I did. Mammoth Campground is open year round and is very close to Gardiner, Wyoming.There is a small but nice grocery store in Gardiner that sells beer,wine,firewood and other grocery items. And the Cowboy Lodge and cafe is a good place to go for lunch. We stayed in Madison, because it was more centrally located. But the sites at Mammoth appeared to be more secluded.I would suggest staying in the park at least one night just for the experience. yes, things will be closing, but there is still enough open to make it worth your while. Have dinner at the Old Faithful Inn. Food is good and not too expensive. It is supposed to be the largest log structure in the world and the lobby is very impressive.We saw a mother grizzly and 3 cubs on the road from Norris to Canyon.
