RE: recomendations for campgrounds southern illinois

If you are not necessarily heading down to the Shawnee Forest area Carlyle Lake is 43 miles NW of Mt. Vernon. The Corp parks have some FHU sites. Those are nicely groomed parks. The Eldon Hazlet SP has electric and is in a wooded setting. The Pharaoh campground at Garden of the Gods is a nice, 12 sites, tall pines, pump water and no hookups, $10?.

RE: Fl. Keys

We toured Big Pine Fishing Lodge and campground, MM33. Nice place. Key deer roam so no dogs allowed.

RE: Favorite Breakfast

We like to have scrambled eggs and asparagus along with toast and coffee from time to time. I will do eggs over easy with some blood sausage, toast with apple butter and coffee but the DW won't eat the blood sausage.

RE: The World's Fair Pavilion, Forest Park Mo.

Babler SP is nice. You can find RV Parks in St. Charles and Eureka.

RE: Leadville CO area questions

Wow! Thanks to all of you for so much great information! I forgot to mention that we will be in CO probably Monday - Thursday. I am really concerned about altitude sickness. Maybe we should look for a lower elevation to explore for two days then move to a higher elevation. Is the Garden of the Gods (6,400') low enough? Any suggestions? We like National and State parks. Since we will be there during the week do you think that we would have any problem finding a site for two days in a couple of locations?

RE: Leadville CO area questions

Thanks for the tip 2lazy4U. I hadn't thought of altitude sickness. Bionic Man, Our TT is about 33' incl. tongue. There are sites available at both campgrounds. I am trying to decide which one to reserve.

Leadville CO area questions

DH and I and our dog are thinking about heading to Colorado. I have been researching and looking for a campground on a lake with beautiful view. We have a 33' TT. I am considering the Leadville, CO area in mid August for 4-5 nights. I am looking at Whitestar camp at Twin Lakes. We are interested in the Train ride in Leadville, exploring Independence Pass and visiting Buena Vista. Twin Lakes is between the towns and at Indep. Pass so it seems like a good choice. Also looking at Molly Brown camp at Turquoise Lake in Leadville. Let me know your thoughts or comparisons of these two campgrounds or others that I may have missed. Ease of pulling a tote to the dump station. The only dump open by Molly Brown is at Printer Boy. That looks far on the map. Have you rented a boat at Twin Lakes? Did you do the train ride? We can take our dog (Golden retriever 1 1/2 yrs.+) on the train. Have you rode with your dog? Do you need to drive all the way to Aspen to get the best out of Independence Pass? Highlights of your trip to this area? I have googled these places and read some posts in this forum. I found a couple of recent years reviews but most are several years old. I read that Quincy's restaurant in Leadville is good. Thanks for reading! Marcia

RE: Turkey Run State Park IN vs Hocking Hills State Park OH

Turkey Run has great trails. I hiked the rugged trails and they weren't bad. There are a lot of steps in some areas, some ladders, ledges, a hill side of boulders to climb. Some trails follow drainage areas and you may get your feet wet. Don't forget water! I wouldn't want to hike after a rain as the rocks would be slick. Most trails start across the swinging bridge but there is a trail at the far end of the campground. It is a nice trail. We were there in 2015 and did not have the water issue that Itching2go described.

RE: Getting To Estes Park/RMNP in 2016-2017

Thank you for posting this information. We hope to head to CO this summer. I'm not sure if we will go to Estes Park but I saved the info.

RE: Spring vacation in Arkansas

We stayed at Lake Dardanelle SP, and visited Jean Petit SP, Mt. Nemo SP and Mount Magazine then moved south to Lake Ouachita SP. Buffalo Point Rec Area is a beautiful area along the Buffalo River. Bull Shoals SP is nice, it is below the dam at Bull Shoals Lake.

RE: Anyone stay at St Louis RV Park

Its also across the street from the police station Its is a very questionable area The way things are going in the city these days I would not stay there I would rent a car and stay in Babler State Park an easy drive to the city X2 Babler SP is near Chesterfield. There is an Enterprise Rent a Car on Chesterfield Airport Road. They may deliver a car to you. We no longer ride the Metro Link, to much crime and lack of security on the train. Be careful while in St. Louis.

RE: Key West area timing

Big Pine Fishing Lodge, mm 33, no dogs as the tiny key deer roam around the campground. It is a very clean and nice campground and shower house. We walked around to look for future reference. There is a lot more to KW than Duval Street and partying.In addition to what has been mentioned... In Key West, we enjoyed these spots. On the Atlantic side of the island: White Street Pier. Free West Martello Tower, I believe an old Fort that the KW Garden Club has a beautiful Garden. They were setting up for a wedding the day we stopped to look around. Free Fort Zachary Taylor beach, small entry fee Gulf side: Historic Harbor: great area to walk around,several restaurants, some boat tours Schooner Jolly Rover II with Red Sails, nice tour around the island, great crew, no music or food, $45 each. Simonton Street Beach, the quiet place to view the sunset. Small group gathering. Small dock. Lagerhead bar. No street vendors/entertainers. This is on the gulf side at the end of Simonton Street. Parking is at a premium. There is a city parking garage near the Harbor area. Be sure to drive all around the island. We enjoyed looking at the houses. There is a road along the Atlantic side past the Airport. May is a great time to go to the Keys. The winter crowd is gone and it is before hurricane season. Nice temps. August in KW is about like St. Louis so no break from the heat. There are many festivals in KW that draw big crowds in addition to the cruise ships so I would check out the schedule before you go. Have a great time! Marcia

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.
