RE: Long Key vs Curry Hammock

Well I found a cancellation today at Long Key, I cancelled my Curry Hammock. I hope nothing was wrong and that they just changed their minds. I always wonder

RE: Long Key vs Curry Hammock

Thanks but when I called to reserve my Long Key site he told me that the first available date open was in September. I was just hitting the next available date button not noticing that it was in September. Well I guess that settles it unless I find a cancelation between now and this weekend. Site #9 Curry Hammock it is. Thanks for the much needed info.

RE: Long Key vs Curry Hammock

The bathrooms are too eco friendly, fancy composting toilets but you wouldn't know it without going in one and using it. Not my preference at all. Like all FSP's they are on this insane idea to return them as close to possible to their original natural state which means no mowing, no insect control, etc. The lack of shade can be brutal if it's hot. The swimming area was lousy, Long key was much more enjoyable in my estimation. Neither have sewer hook ups so that can create issues. Pennekamp upgraded to FHU a few years ago and the photos look nice. If I had to pick one it would be Pennekamp or Long Key.What cha think site #15 or #55 at Long Key would be better. It looks like #15 might have a little shade but it's closer to the road and road noise. #55 is larger and further away from the road and looks closer to the bathhouses. Looks like it has the shade from one palm tree lol

RE: Long Key vs Curry Hammock

Been a few years since I was down there but the CG was nice when I was there. The swimming area wasn't great and the CG management was a little anal about some things but the CG was in good order. I have to admit I liked Long Key better as it was a more rustic laid back atmosphere with better water views. There is no shade to speak of and the brush blocks most of the water views from campsites. Thanks gypsy, that's basically what I've reading except they are saying the bathrooms are being neglected and the toilets are the more eco-friendly with no water flush. Seems like that might could be a problem as hot as it is. Altho I've been watching and its been a little cooler there than where you and I are at. Ive read that site #2 is the only site that has a water view now cause they have not cut back any of the brush. Seems like there would be no breeze at all, I don't know.

Long Key vs Curry Hammock

I have reservations for Curry Hammock next week but after reading the reviews on this campground from various sites, it sounds as tho it's not as nice as it once was even tho it's a relatively new campground. I can get in some of the other state campgrounds if I'm willing to split my week up. We have site #9 reserved at Curry Hammock, is there anyone here that can give me any updates on the park. We've camped at all the other State campgrounds down there. Thanks for anything you can add.

RE: Disappointed in Topsail

Looking at the pics it looks to me like it's being neglected. I visited Homosassa Springs a few weeks ago and one of the employees that work there was complaining that their annual budget was being cut by $50,000 and that meant two employees was going be let go. I've been reading about Curry Hammock being neglected too. Maybe it time we start e-mailing Tallahassee.

RE: Where to stay in the Smokeys

What time of year are you going? Third week in September. I'm leaning heavily toward Smokemont at this point. They have a dump station. Any particular sites you looking at? I'm going up this weekend and should have enough time to cruise by and get you a pic or two of some sites your interested in.

RE: Where to stay in the Smokeys

What time of year are you going? Third week in September. I'm leaning heavily toward Smokemont at this point. They have a dump station. Should be a great week, yes they have potable water in the campground, just not at each site. Buy you a waste tank too and get you a site right on the creek and enjoy!

RE: Florida Seasonal Camping

The Keys are the warmest and even in the Keys there will be a few winter nights in the 40's We winter there for five months every year and like it so much that two years ago we bought a RV site on Key Largo jack L Jack, if you don't mind me asking, what does a site cost at Key Largo?

RE: Where to stay in the Smokeys

The Cherohala Skyway from Robbinsville, NC to Tellico Plains, Tn is a great drive and has a number of interesting off shoots. FS Rd 81 splits off at the eastern end, parallels the Skyway for about 15 miles and offers several rustic campsites but suggest you drive it first without the camper to see if any are of interest. Towards the Tn end, the Bald River Falls is a must see. The road to it eventually runs back to the Skyway and connects with FS 81. Get Forest Service maps for Nantahala and Cherokee NFs. Also suggest a visit to and possible rafting trip with Nantahala Outdoor Center. Maybe combine that with a trip from Bryson City to the Center. On the Great Smoky Mountain Railroad. We have a cabin in Robbinsville

RE: Where to stay in the Smokeys

What time of year are you going? In my opinion that would be the deciding factor. We just got back from there and it was bumper to bumper in Gatlinburg/Pigeon Forge area and wall to wall people. It took 30 minutes to go 5 miles between Gatlinburg to Pigeon Forge and that's in a pick up with no camper. It calms down the second week of August but everything is still open. We have a cabin on the NC side

RE: Gatlinburg Or Pigeon Forge

I just got back from up there this past weekend and the traffic was bumper to bumper and it was wall to wall people. I suggest staying over on the NC side or wait until after August 15th.

Sound but no picture on my DVD player

I have a new 2016 Forest River Micro-Lite and I can't get the DVD player to work right. I put a movie in it and I get the sound of the movie but no picture. I've tried changing different stuff on the TV but still nothing. I was going to take it back to Camping World and let them fix it but I was told they don't know how long it would take and I don't want to let it sit in there for the summer. I told the lady it might be operator error and if someone could give me a quick five minutes it might not be broke. But she said I would have to drop it off. Go figure!

RE: Summer camping in Florida

OK..a reviewer on rvparkreviews.com wrote that Old Town Campground & Retreat closes for the summer. There's nothing on the CG's generic reservation-system website that mentions it. It's the first CG in Florida I've heard of that closes for summer. Odd. It probably caters to snowbirds only. Long term rentals only, not a real "campground" Campgrounds in Florida are busy year round. There might be some that only opens in the winter cause they cater to Snowbirds only and offer no more than a hook up but to call them a campground is ridiculous.

RE: Summer camping in Florida

That's odd; I am 62 and have lived and camped in FL all my life and I don't know of one camp ground that closes in the summer. It's hard to get into the state parks all summer and the ones on water book 11 months ahead. Some of the inland central FL snowbird parks are quiet in the summer but stay open. There are biting bugs certain places. I won't camp Sebastian Inlet because of the All Jaws. But I don't think mosquitoes are a big problem. Most places spray and they usually only bite at sundown, then we go back out. Florida summer evenings are great; usually in the low 70's. Worst mosquitoes and biting bugs I ever experienced was in Michigan and Minnesota. The May flies and deer flies drew blood and the skeeters were terrible. Like I said, I welcome the summer for many reasons. Having lived here for 59 (all of my) years I have never seen a CG close in the summer for a lack of business. me neither, campgrounds are just as busy in the summer months as they are in the winter. You still have to make reservations months ahead of time.

RE: Summer camping in Florida

Maybe better yet all of the Snowbirds have left... We like our northern visitors as they pass through north Florida We watched as you shoved them through South Carolina the past 6 weeks to go home for taxes. I95 north is no longer a traffic jam. Hey Chris, you still around??? Fla-gypsy and I are FB buddies..you still go to St Joseph?
