RE: Top Sail Hill Florida state park things to do in area

Don't forget to eat at the Donut Hole. Yes, the apple fritter can feed 3.

The Naval Air Museum and the Lighthouse across the street. Full day's worth.

RE: A week in Top Sail

We will be in site 129 in 10 days. We loved or first trip there last year. The beaches are a step up to the gulf beaches on the west coast of FL. Clearer water, larger surf and fewer people. We missed eating at the Donut Hole last time, but have it on the agenda this time around. Might do Stinky's again; pricey but good food. My goal is to fish and relax.

RE: Reserve America reservation fee for FL State Parks

So that is where that charge came from. While I don't like to pay cancellation fees, it does help keep people from making 10 different reservations with the intention of only using one.... better yet maybe Reserve America could make their system only allow one reservation per day per email address... :) Or let FL give residents an extra month to book sites :) :)

RE: Georgia mountains

For state parks, Black Rock is 3600 ft and Vogel ~2500 ft. Both will get cool mornings. Black Rock is not friendly to anything over 25 ft long. We were up there in June and at 1400 ft it was hot and humid mid-day. Nights got down around 68-70.

RE: Starting Point recommendations Bunk House 5er MFG and Models

We are looking at 5er bunkhouses as well. One thing to consider, your girls will grow so get the one that'll fit them as teenagers. Our 3 kids have doubled in size in 5 years and our current BH is getting a bit cramped. I want the BH at one end and us at the other end. Distance, distance...

RE: Trip Report: The Perfect Family Trip!

I've spent the better part the past 18 hours reading this entire thread; thoroughly enjoying the journey. I traveled across I-40 in '88 and returned in 2005 to visit Grand Canyon, Sedona, Petrified Forest, Vegas (will pass on this next time) and Zion. This was before our camping life began in 2009. My two oldest were 4 and 1 at the time and do not remember anything. Now we have a 14, 11, and 8 year old and am trying to squeeze in a return visit that is very close to your trip, one to Yellowstone area and a DC trip; all before the oldest leaves home. DC is planned for next May, unless we can get my boss to approve a month off for a western trip. Living in Florida this is quite a commute, but we are determined to do so. And being a FL native I am in awe of the vastness of the west. The size, the solitude, the views, the independence all draw me back. My camping budget is similar to yours with the addition of one meal out per week to sample local cuisine. My wife has authorized generator(s) for A/C and I'd love to camp inside the parks and try some boon docking. We have done Walmart and plan on using them coming and going. I know what you mean about videos. We make a 20-25 minute year long summary video for Christmas each year and I doubt family members watch them more than once, if at all. Only my wife's boss will comment on what's in the videos. Have thought about making a one song video for the ADHD relatives. Anyway, great job on this thread.

RE: Jetty Park at Canaveral and rocket launch questions

I haven't driven to the cape since the last shuttle night launch, so I can't speak on the crowd levels. The media coverage of the unmanned launches has been dismal at best in the Tampa market. Its a shame the interest level has dropped so low so fast. With that, I'd guess the crowds are manageable.

RE: How long in Zion and Bryce

I really agree that if you don't sit outside at night at Zion, you have missed half the show! This was taken in Watchman Campground last November, right outside my trailer: http://4.bp.blogspot.com/-kg3Cc3Vxcn0/VHd1ndRzZ_I/AAAAAAAAL4M/v88s0XqJ0ic/s1600/orion%2Bwatchman.jpg height=400 width=600 At night, Bryce can get chilly -- bring a sweater! Wow!!

RE: Black Rock Mountain State Park, Georgia

Wow, so you made it up (and down) in a 33 footer! So I guess it obviously can be done. I looked at Tallulah Gorge as well, but I think Black Rock Mtn will be a good 10 deg cooler, which is a big deal this time of year! Unless we are headed to the beach, I try to avoid anything below about 3000' in the summer. I didn't take the trailer up, just the truck. The temp difference was the only reason to consider. I'd do the road if the destination was great, but Black Rock doesn't offer much for the family. Tallulah has easy access and a lot more to do for us.

RE: Black Rock Mountain State Park, Georgia

We drove up and stopped by the campground and talked to a host. They said that there are about 3-4 site that will take a 30 footer and they save those for larger campers that they know are checking in. We saw 2-3 sites that would handle our 33 ft TT. However they were in the front section that has a larger turn around about midway into the campground. We drove through to the back turn around and had to do a 3 point turn in a dually. The road up is steep and twisty. - We stayed at Tallulah Gorge about 15 miles south.
