RE: Camping near Washington and Jefferson National Forests

Here are a few in that area that we like. In Virgina,Sherando Lake and Goose Point. Both Forest service campgrounds with electric hookups and lakes for swimming.In West Virginia, Trout Pond,another forest service campground with electric and a lake. But here's one in Pennsylvania. Pine Grove Furnace state park is the half way point on the Appalachian trail. They also have electric hookups,new bath houses, 2 lakes for swimming and a small store where through hikers stop and eat a half gallon of ice cream. Close by is Gettysburg and even closer is a former POW camp where you can take a self guided tour. They have maps in the office. http://www.dcnr.state.pa.us/stateparks/findapark/pinegrovefurnace/

RE: Gettysburg area campground

You said RV park so maybe you won't like my suggestion. Pine Grove Furnace State Park is about 20 miles northwest of Gettysburg. They have sites with electric hookups,new bath houses,a small store and 2 lakes for swimming with a brand new bath house snack bar at the one.There are water hydrants in each loop and a dump station. It is the half way point on the Appalachian trail.There is a former POW camp nearby. You can buy a book on it at the visitor center and there is a map if you want to take a self guided tour and see what's left.

RE: Good places to visit ..Ala. South Carolina ,Tenn

Dittos on Andersonville, Ft Benning Infantry Museum and Confederate Naval Museum.We visited them while staying at Georgia Veterans State Park. We stayed at High Falls State Park riverside campground on our way home from Disney.Nice campground with water and electric,pull throughs and back ins. Nice bath houses and laundry facilities. Not sure what there is to do in the area. In South Carolina,we stayed at Huntington Beach State Park. 130 sites,some in the open and some that are pretty secluded. Some full hookups,most are water and electric. You can walk to the beach and the Nature staff puts on some very interesting talks.Some in the nature Center and others on the beach.Murrels Inlet is right up the road. We ate at Drunkin Jacks which is very nice and the food is good. If you head north,the Blue Ridge Parkway is nice. We stayed at Sherando Lake which is about 10 miles west of mile marker 18. Large sites with electric hookups and a lake for swimming.

RE: Campgrounds near NJ

Go west. Pa has some nice state parks,most have electric hookups.One, Promised Land's Pickeral Point Campground has a loop with full hookups and brand new bath houses.It's not far from Jersey. Take I-80 west. We also enjoy Locust Lake and Pine Grove Furnace.Both can be accessed from I-81 south. Both have swimming beaches. Locust Lake has a paved trail around the lake for bikes or walking. Pine Grove Furnace has new bath houses,a new snack bar bath house at the lake,a small visitor center and,if you like history,a former POW camp close by. They have have a pamphlet for a self guided tour and sell a book on it.If you have a dog,make sure you get a pet site. http://www.dcnr.state.pa.us/stateparks/staythenight/camping/

RE: Memorial Day a day of remembering and respect

We don't know them all, but we owe them all. Remembering someone who was a mentor to me and other kids my age. George Young,died February 1970 when his chopper went down in South Vietnam.I was in Boot Ca,p in San Diego when I got the news. I do everything I can to honor his sacrifice.

RE: What are your favorite state parks to camp?

Ditto on Ricketts Glen Sp in Pa. No hookups but decent bath house and water hydrants. You can run generator during the day. You have to be in decent shape to do the falls trail but it is very nice. Custer State Park Huntington Beach Sp South Carolina. High Falls State park, Ga Olagalla State Recreation area in Nebraska. Buck Creek State Park near Dayton,Ohio

RE: Best Alabama to West Yellowstne

We took 70 from Pa. Got onto I-74, I-72 and then went across Missouri on State Rt 36. That is a very good 4 lane rod with a 65 mph speed limit. There are 2 nice state parks along 36, Pershing and Long Branch. $19 a night with electric. From 36 we hit I-29 north to I-80. We stayed on that to Rock Springs, Wyoming.Then 191 north to Alpine, then 26 to Idaho Falls and 20 north into West Yellowstone. Nothing too steep and some very bueatiful scenery. There are plenty of places for others to pass and places to pull over and take a break. If you take that route, there is a FLying J with RV pumps in Rock Springs and there's a nice campground in Boulder ,Wy called High Trails RV park. Full hookups,nice spacing between sites and a nice bath house and laundry room.

RE: Getting Through Yellowstone

We were in Yellowstone last week.We didn't see any road work,the weather was great and there wasn't any traffic jams. But I'm sure that will change after this weekend.

RE: Carter Caves, KY?

Nice campground with electric hookups and laundry in the bath houses. I believe they allow campers to swim in the pool at the hotel.

RE: State Parks

A 35 ft TT is pretty big for some Pa State Parks. We have a 26ft TT and I don't see many sites that will accomodate yours at Locust Lake.And even if the site would fit,backing in could be an issue. We often camp at Locus Lake. They have a great paved trail around the lake and a nice swimming beach.Promised Land Pickeral Point has a loop with full hookups. I think you would have better luck finding a site there because there are fewer trees to hinder backing into a site.We don't like the campground at French Creek.Many sites have the picknick table and camp fire ring behind the camper instead of next to it. That set up often puts you closer to you neighbor than we prefer. The rest of the park is fine and if you like history,Hopewell Village, a national Park historic site is next door.

RE: Trip report, Yellowstone.

Say....were you the one that folks were telling "you can't do that trip in 2 weeks". :) It sounds like a great trip for you! haha yes,we were told that plus we were told it was a bad time because it could snow and most things weren't open. I guess I'm the type who doesn't listen to the naysayers.It would have been nice to be able to take a little more time on the way out and back,but 4 days in the park was fine. On the way home,we met a couple from Florida who was taking a month.That would have been nice but my wife only has 3 weeks of PTO.

RE: Trip report, Yellowstone.

FYI there is cell phone reception in parts of Yellowstone.Old Faithful we had reception and 3G data. Near Mammoth Hot Springs we had some reception. My wife has Verizon and I have Sprint.Verizon seemed to have the edge but Sprint wasn't bad.

RE: Trip report, Yellowstone.

How many hours/miles did you drive per day We are also planning a trip with our two boys and want to see how we should break down the hours First day was about 10 hours. The rest of the trip we did anywhere from 6 to 9 hours. We got to Yellowstone on the 5th day.

We just returned from Yellowstone. We saw a momma grizzly and 3 cubs on the road from Norris to Canyon near Wolf Lake.Be sure to visit the Grand Canyon of the Yellowstone. Very scenic. Eat at the Old faithful Inn Dining room.Good food and service. Very historic building.
