RE: Beware "Reserve America"

Very interesting thread. I've never had an issue but will watch very carefully next time I make a reservation. I checked the BBB and they are not accredited. Complaints listed were the same as mentioned here. Marcia

RE: Shawnee National Forest, Southern IL

TrailerTraveler1, Where did you end up camping? We may head that way next summer. What did you think of Pounds Hollow? They have added electric to some sites. We spent one night at the Garden of the Gods campground a few years ago. Very nice but no electric. Did you hike at Rim Rock? Marcia

RE: Campsites at Turkey Run State Park Ind.

The whole campground is flat except for the sites in those small loops and maybe sites near 200 as the road goes down a hill then back up.

RE: Campsites at Turkey Run State Park Ind.

We camped there in July. Our TT is 33'. We had site 72. I chose that site for the shade and the water spigot was next to us. We had 6 adults in our group. If you can get site 13 or 14 they are real nice. Shady and 45-50 feet in length. I remember the Shady Lane area being hilly and some tight or smaller sites back there. Sites 84-200 were in the woods but near the main road that is outside the campground so you would here the cars. You would have to check the site photos for electric placement. The dark area by the dump station (DS)are the dumpsters. The sites in the middle were close. I would chose a site around the perimeter with the woods in back. We rode our bikes back to the 200's sites we were not impressed. The picnic tables are small and need to be replaced. There are a few new ones. The shower house is old but looked okay. We didn't use it. There is a walking trail between the campground and the lodge area. No bikes allowed on trails. They are rough with stairs, etc. Campsites are just okay. They could make them better. People go there to hike and float. The trails are beautiful!! I hiked trails 9 and 5 with our 24 and 27 year old kids. It was pretty rugged and very cool. You had to watch where you were stepping. It was challenging. I took a lot of pictures! The river looked nice for floating. We drove to see the covered bridges at either end of the state park. Park rules are no swimming in the river but you can float. Apparently it flash floods. The river was low and there were people in the water under the swinging bridge. There wasn't anybody enforcing the rule. I'm sure there would be if the river was higher. Enjoy your trip! Marcia

RE: Advise please-Campground Near Ava MO in March

We go out for our first trip of the season to Carlyle Lake in mid March. We hope for 60 high/40 low. Two years ago we got a foot of snow the following weekend! Like JCGibson said the weather is very unpredictable. Ava is not really near any larger towns/cities.The Laura Ingalls Wilder RV Park is open all year and has hookups.

RE: Anyone stayed in Cg 3, #136 at Roaring river state park

We camped in CG#2 over the summer. We looked at site #136. It is flat and better access to water. It may be a drop off but less trees for fishing. Guys were catching fish early in the morning!

RE: What are you reading?

A Walk in the Woods, Bill Bryson. It is about him and an old buddy's adventure walking the Appalachion Trail. He is a humor travel writer. Funny and a lot of history about the area along the trail. Marcia

RE: Bucket list?

We don't have a list yet. We have a lot of places on our minds for when we are retired and can take as long as we desire. I get ideas from this site and Trip Advisor and just googling areas. It is time consuming but it is my therapy. I have discovered thing to do and places to see that we may have been disapointed if we learned of them after the trip. Such as riding ATV's along the Oregon Dunes; the slot canyon tour near Page, AZ; hiking trails at Turkey Run SP in Indiana; Slide Rock SP in the Oak Creek canyon in AZ; Jedediah Smith Redwoods State Park near Crescent City, CA; Colorado River Discovery raft trip at Page, AZ; Hot Springs Lodge and Pool in Glenwood Springs, CO; Float trip on the Current and Jacks Fork Rivers in Southern Missouri; camping by the White River under the Dam at Bull Shoals Lake in AR; Virginia Creeper bike/hike trail at Damascus, VA. So if you find yourself in these areas these places were worth the stop. I would visit them again. Safe travels, Marcia

RE: Trip Planning: The Perfect Family Trip 2016!

I love your map! Trip planning is my therapy while not camping. I just have some info for our area. In case you need to stop in IL or MO. Benton, IL - Rend Lake "Wayne Fitzgerrell SP" is close to the Interstate. Electric. Fill your tank on arrival. If you need to go further north, Carlyle, IL - Carlyle Lake, take Route 127 North). "Dam West" is a corp. park, nicely groomed, some FHU or electric, you should be able to get a site M-W w/o a reservation. We always stay at "Eldon Hazlet SP" up the road(our weekend retreat), 300+ sites, electric, pool, very wooded, beautiful lake. Best sites to reserve are 7, 8 and 9 on the water. You only need a reservation on a holiday weekend. Herod, IL "Garden of the Gods Rec. Area" is a little out of the way but such a cool place! There are 12 sites in the pines, no electric, hand pump water, no showers, $10/night deposit in drop box. No reservations. It may get full on weekends. Hannibal, MO, "all about Mark Twain", "Mark Twain Lake SP" is nice, electric, we were there in 1998 and there were a lot of Whipporwills singing at night. Very cool! St. Louis area: St. Charles, MO, "Sundermeier RV Park" right in town, pricey $63/night (location, location)this is a Lewis & Clark historic town. Edmund Babler SP near Chesterfield, MO is just to the south of St. Charles. $21/night, electric. wooded. Nice SP. And since you are not a local, for your safety, drive I-70 through St. Louis during the day and don't stop in between St. Charles and Fairview Heights, IL. Honestly, I-70 goes through the worst parts of the whole St. Louis Metro (North St. Louis and East St. Louis). You get to go over the new Stan Musial/Veterans Memorial Bridge! Have a wonderful and safe trip! Marcia

RE: Mama Gertie's Upper Level Photos

We stayed a couple of nights in site 16 this summer. It is in the lower section in the middle. The sites on the sides had more shade. The sites are tiered going up the hill. There is a small picnic table and nice landscaping along the rock retaining wall for the sites in the middle section. There are also tent sites and cabins in the woods and the sites at the top with decks. There is a fenced in pet area too. This park is kept very neat and clean. The guy was raking the rock and cleaning the fire pit as soon as a site was vacated. I learned of this RV park on this web site. Great park!

RE: Inflatable Hideabed Mattress

Sometimes our kids will deflate it half way and set it on top of our bed for the day. We don't fold our mattress in the couch.

RE: Where to camp, reservations etc

Hickory Creek campground at Lewisville Lake TX is nice. The gate closes at 10 p.m.(?) Check recreation.gov. We stayed there while visiting friends. Nice big sites. Only con is the gate. You can get out but not back in after 10.

RE: campground brimingham alabama montgomery alabama

We stayed at Rickwood Caverns for one night. They have a gate that closes in the evening. Call ahead if you plan on getting there after dark. You may need to get the code.

RE: Stops along the way from Fla to Michigan

We stayed one night at the KY Horse Park campground in June. Great campground for kids. There is a pool, tennis court, etc. There are things to do and see at the Park.I wish we would have known about this park when the kids were young. Most people had their golf carts with them. I guess to go back and forth from the KY Park. They were everywhere! They are quiet and you don't realize they are right behind you when you are out walking.

RE: Big Pine Key Fishing Lodge

We walked around the place when we were in the keys. It is a real nice place. The bath house was nice. Nice people, employees and people camping.I don't think dogs are allowed because of the key deer that roam around.
