RE: Cape Cod

Hi, We have either stayed at Atlantic Oaks for its easy access to bike trail or at Sweetwater Forest for its great sites when we go to the Cape. No pool but both really nice places to stay.

RE: Favorite Camping Location

We have been to many of the places mentioned here. We have traveled from east to west 4 times, up north and around NE many times and down the eastern seaboard via the Appalachians 3 times. We have stayed at so many beautiful campgrounds. We especially love the National Parks and the Florida state parks. But my all time favorite will always be Lake Forest RV Resort in East Wakefield NH on the pristine Great East Lake and within drivable distance of the NH White MTs. We have stayed there so many times since we started in 2007 that it feels like home.

RE: Campground near Norfolk

Hi, My all time favorite campground is First Landing in Virginia Beach. Nothing like camping in the dunes:) Its a bit of a ride to Norfolk but not bad. It would be closer to Norfolk than staying at one of the campgrounds closer to downtown VB. You would also have to drive to downtown VB where the boardwalk is. If you like to bike the VB boardwalk is awesome. If you have time the botanical gardens in Norfolk are just beautiful. We have also done the boat tour of the aircraft carriers and the land tour although no one is allow to get off the bus. Another wonderful visit was to the Chrysler Museum. We wandered around for hours. We have also stayed in the national park in Assateauge. No hookups but worth staying at. We did have ponies wander through our site at night..saw evidence in the morning and saw them on the roadside and around the campground at peoples sites during the day. Another beautiful national park. Good luck in your search.

RE: Bahia Honda April 4th-10th (ish)

Hello, Don't give up hope. We have stayed at Bahia Honda, John Pennycamp, Curry Hammock and Long Key over the years. Many of those times I was only able to get reservations by checking and checking 5 or 6 times a day until I found a cancelation. And this was for the summertime. In October we were able to get a site at Long Key for the first time. We liked it so much we wanted to go back this February. Of course it was booked solid. I would see one or two night cancellations December or January. Nothing for February. Then one night about three weeks ago I went on to check for one last time for the day at about 10:00 pm. Was I ever shocked to see 14 nights in a row available. I immediately booked the first 7 nights. The next day the last 7 were long gone also. We love staying at Anastasia SP on our way to the Keys. Again nothing that was suitable for us. Either very short site even though we are only 21ft or tents sites only. And then OMG!!! I went on to check and there was a cancelation for a site that we would fit into. Booked it immediately for 4 nights. And the most amazing thing was we had one night we need to book between Anastasia and Long Key. I just couldn't believe it when I went on John Pennycamp one night and there 2 nights available one being the one night we needed!!!!!! I am retired (as of June 2014) so I do have a lot of time to check over and over. But I have been able to get sites in the Keys SP by just diligently checking. I had read about doing this here on the forum a few years back and it was a great suggestion that has worked well for me. Good luck in your search. The state parks in Florida are our favorite places to stay there.

RE: An added bonus for us while at Assateague Statae park!

Hi, We were there for three nights last week. It was our first time there. It is so beautiful. We were in the National Park on a huge site overlooking the bay. We enjoyed seeing the wild horses. The movie that is shown at the visitors center was very informative and interesting.Enjoy you stay there.

RE: Grand Tetons experience anyone?

Hi.....on our 4th western trip we took our chances on getting a site in Grand Teton's ( one of the most beautiful places in the world) and we were able to get a site at the RV part with the hookups. We were able to get reservations for 2 nights online as we got closer to the Teton's and then when we got there the office people were so helpful.They were able to get us 2 more nights all at the same site. So we had a wonderful stay in one of my all time favorite places for 4 nights. The Grand Teton's truly are God's country. There is a wonderful bike/ walking path there also. Enjoy!

RE: construction materials

What's wrong with osb? MH's have been designed with it for years. If you want to pick apart materials there would be a long list ahead of OSB for flooring. Its not me its him. He just doesn't like it.

RE: Class A Axis/Vegas

I was looking at this RV today as I am retiring in June and husband is already retired. We have a 21ft travel trailer but we are thinking about getting something a little bigger and easier to handle. The Axis seems to fit most of the things we are looking for. The only problem is that my husband is dead set against anything constructed with OSB. Can anyone tell me if the floor of the Axis is sob or plywood or composite? Thank you David and Marianne 2010 Tundra 2007 FunFinder 21'

RE: Any "must see" towns in NE section of US?

Hi, Acadia NP in Maine is a beautiful place to visit.

RE: New England!

opps I stand corrected. I think I probably knew that but as children are not even allowed in to visit it stuck in my head that it was 55+. We usually see mostly older couples like us...50/60's but now that you say that we have seen some younger couples there. In fact we talked one time with a young couple who were tent camping there on their honeymoon.

RE: New England!

Hey dakasa47, So cool to hear that Lake Forest is still going strong. My parents camped there alot (wow, probably about 25-30 years ago!). My wife and I would go up and visit and bring my skiboat - beautiful lake & campground! Now that we're reaching that 55 mark, and the kids are heading to college, we'll have to check it out again! Thats so cool. We love it there. Definitely check it out. I emailed Judy.Opening Day is May 7th I think. We started camping in 2007 and Lake Forest was one of the first places we stayed. We have been going back regularly since then.

RE: New England!

Hello, For over 55 look at Wild Duck Campground in Scarboro ME. Its on a beautiful marsh and there is a nice bike trail close by. Head one way from the parking lot and it ends in Old Orchard Beach ME....go the other way and it a beautiful ride through the marsh and some forested areas. There are a few kayaks and canoes to rent and launch right at the campground when the tide is in or there is a canoe/kayak rental place down the road right before the bike path.The owners are really very nice and welcoming. It is a very quiet campground. That is one of the reasons we go there often.The owner Chris is very visible riding on his little golf cart making sure everyone is happy and has what they need. WIFI costs $1.00 a night. Lots of places to get Maine lobster or lobster rolls. Clean as can be bathhouse.The whole campground is kept immaculate. Another over 55 is Lake Forest RV Resort in East Wakefield NH. Not really a resort but well worth the money. We go there all the time as it is our favorite place to stay. The sites are large and forested. It has a small golf course(Cayman course I think its called) if you play. We don't but it very popular with the residents there. Bocce Ball, Pot Luck dinners, book club and things like that. There are other planned activities but low key and again quiet. It is on Great East Lake which is graded a Class A lake. It is so clean and crystal clear. Many seasonal people there and everyone is friendly. Many people have kayaks, canoes and sailfish down by the lake as there is an easy in and out boat ramp. There is a deck along the lake with plenty of chairs to sit in with steps and docks into the lake for swimming. And a short drive away there is the Cotton Trail bike path again my favorite bike trail to ride on. Park at Fernald Station and head one direction throughout the forest and a nice swampy area. Head in the other direction through the forest along Lake Wentworth and end up in Wolfboro NH right on Lake Winnipasawkee. Dave and Judy the owners are great. Its a family run campground which was started by Dave's father many years ago I believe. Its about an hours drive to the White Mountains and North Conway NH. No wifi. There is another one in Maine called Potters Place but we have never been there. 55 and over or maybe adult only...not sure.Its quite northern in ME.
