An added bonus for us while at Assateague Statae park!

We are (not soon enough) going to Assateague Island State park in early June. We love that place and were lucky enough to get a site in the H-loop (the only one with electric). Not only are we now able to bring our pet..as an added bonus I just noted that there is a launch going off at NASA's Wallops Flight Facility, during the time we are there. It is a 2 a.m. launch so I am sure we will see it perfectly from the beach at Assateague. The flight is to bring supplies to the space station. What a great trip to look forward to (especially after this loooong winter!) So excited:)

New RV resort near the Smokey Mountains...

Saw an ad for this new CG located in Dandridge, TN. It is apparently scheduled to open on 3/17/2014. It lists some nice amenities and shows beautiful views. It called "Anchor Down Resort" This is their link If anyone gets the chance to visit this place I hope they tell us about their experience. It looks like some good money and planning has been invested. :)

RE: Disney raises ticket price

Disney has little interest in people wanting to go to the parks for only 1 day. They want to make it a destination resort where people stay 3-5+ days. At Disney World for instance, a 1 day pass is $99 but a 9 day ticket is $344 or just $38 a day. We just came back from a full week long vacation there. Had a great time and a very good value. Transportation from airport to Disneyworld was free and no rental car was needed our entire trip since Disney has their own transportation system. That said, I agree its too expensive to go for just 1 day and its also way too expensive and over crowded to bother going over holidays or school break periods. Ditto!

RE: Need your suggestions - w/in a day's drive of NJ

I would recommend (to the south) Assateague Island, MD, where you can camp on the beach and among the wild ponies, and deer. To the north if you don't mind approximately an 8hr trip from South Jersey, I would suggest visiting Niagara Falls.

RE: Seashore Campsites, Cape May NJ Purchased by Sun RV Resorts

I was very disappointed to read this today. We live very close to this CG and for years have gone there several times a year with our grandchildren for short, getaway trips. We already have two reservations for this coming season. I did just see on the Seashore Campsites Facebook page that son (of the original owners) will still be managing the CG and that the same employees will return. I guess how much the new "corporate" owners are willing to spend to keep the CG at its current high standards eventually be seen. It was always a great place to visit..but I think the track record of "corporate" takeovers usually go downhill more than uphill. Just my opinion.

RE: What's Your 2014 Wish for RV Design

I ask for the simple things in life (lol), like a spot to place my trash can and also a hamper!

RE: Why doesn't manufacturer just give a new model number?

As I search the web I found that some dealers are actually offering a 2014 that is basically the same as I have, but others offer the new "overhauled" version (as according to one dealer). The Forest River site only shows the older version(??). Oh well...I am happy to say that I like our version and it has served us well..(though I am starting to get the 5-year itch to upgrade to a 5th wheeler:B, though hubby says no:(

Why doesn't manufacturer just give a new model number?

Wow was I surprised! We have a 2010 Rockwood Model 2607. I know that each year the manufacturer's will sometimes make small changes/updates, but boy was I surprised when I checked the 2014 model of our TT. Rockwood not only added an additional slide, they also added a kitchen island, moved the kitchen from one side to the other, shrunk and repositioned the bathroom and then added an outside kitchen. While I'm sure many people will like the new layout, why wouldn't they just give the new updated TT a new model number of it's own? It is nothing like the original 2607 so to me makes no sense giving it the same number. Oh well...just my opinion. Hope all of you out there have a great New Year!

RE: indoor pool

Never been here at Otter Lake Resort near/in the Pocono's but have been wanting to try it. They do advertise an indoor pool. They seem to be about 3-1/2 hours from where you are. I checked reviews and there seem to be a mix, though mostly good. :)

RE: Cape May

I agree with you that Seashore Campground is a great place. We live very close to it and try to take our grandkids at least once or twice a year. I'm glad you enjoyed our area in the off season. September is one of the most beautiful times of the year down here. Looking forward to more of your family's blog.

RE: Good Food Near the Allentown KOA

We stayed there 2 years ago and loved it. In the office they have a booklet that shows all the menus and locations of nearby businesses and restaurants. The camp host had recommended a nearby ice cream/bakery/candy store to us(I can't remember the name but I am sure they will have it). I highly recommend you try this place out for dessert. They have a patio area with tables and music to eat at. It was so nice we went twice! The ice cream is homemade, and the bakery treats were to die for! I am sure the campground hosts will also tell you which restaurants are the locals favorites! We went off-season so the CG was very quiet on our visit. The leaves were just beginning to turn colors, making it all the more relaxing. One note of caution is that (unless it has been changed), is the entrance to the CG was very tricky so be careful when approaching it. Also, the road back to the CG was a bit "tight", so drive with extra caution, otherwise I expect that you will have a great time. One more thing..if you have younger kids I HIGHLY suggest you visit the Cedar Beach Playground while in Allentown. (Google it for directions). This was an absolutely great park for our grand-kids to play at..it is huge! Hope you get to check it out. Have a great trip!

Suggestions between Philadelphia and Niagra....

We are hoping to plan a getaway to Niagara (from South Jersey/Phila area) and will have some extra time to stop for sightseeing. We plan on heading up I-476 to (I believe)the I-80 area. We plan on stopping at Knoebels Amusement park for visit on the way back but were hoping to find some places that others thought neat to check out. Any suggestions? Thanks!
