RE: Advice on getting to Redwood NP

Highway 89 through Lassen Volcanic NP will most likely still be closed in May. Highway 44 around the north side of the Park will be open. Same for Highway 36 south of the Park. Both 36 and 44 are kept open year around. Some of the forest roads off 44 will be iffy in May. Which campground are you asking about? There is lots of boondocking opportunities in the National Forest around Lassen Volcanic NP. Cell phone coverage can be hit or miss. Mostly miss. From Lassen Park there is basically three routes to get to Redwoods. Highway 36 from Red Bluff to the coast is not recommended for RVs. Narrow, curvy, not RV friendly. Highway 299 from Redding to the coast is good two lane, but very curvy with a couple of steep grades. I have done it, and is not fun but safe. My preferred route is north on I-5, then Highway 199 from Grants Pass Oregon to Crescent City. Much nicer drive, easier with an RV. This takes you right through Jedediah Smith State Park (Star Wars -- Forest Moon of Endor filmed there) and a nice campground right on the river and next to a large grove of Redwoods. May in the Redwoods can still be wet and cool in the mornings. Fog commonly burns off mid to late morning, then can be sunny and pleasant in the afternoon. Inland 5-10 miles gets you out of the fog belt and can get hot in the PM. Great info, thanks. I was looking at Living Springs RV Park on 44. I'm not too worried about cell phone stuff, just want to make sure we can get our 30' 5er into a decent CG safely. Not afraid to Boondock, but it makes my wife nervous lol.

RE: Advice on getting to Redwood NP

Should be a good trip. The long boring I5 could be a backup if needed and you could cross on 20 and go up 101. Consider buying Mountain Directory West and have a heads up on the roads. Thanks!

RE: Advice on getting to Redwood NP

May is early for Lassen Volcanic NP. Expect lots of roads to still be closed for snow removal. The connection between south and north entrances didn't happen this year till July 1st. I did read that on the NPS website. The CG I'm interested in says the main roads are always passable, just double checking.

Advice on getting to Redwood NP

Planning an early spring road trip in May. We'll be departing from Flagstaff and heading up to Redwood NP. I was looking at roaming through Nevada, then entering California on US 395through Susanville to Cal 44 or 36, on to Klamath, CA. I know weather is unpredictable, but should I avoid that route and take the long way up I-5 from I-40? A campground I'm considering is near Lassen Volcanic NP off of CA 44 before Redwood NP. I'm just not sure. Any advice is appreciated, thanks.

RE: Go around northeast Ohio

Simple...don't pay the fines on mail citations. The Ohio Supreme Court ruled traffic enforcing cameras are illegal, because you must face your accuser in a court of law.

RE: Looking for suggestions on our 14 day trip to the southeast

If you have time, check out all the waterfalls near Brevard, NC.

RE: Alternative to I-70 through Indiana needed

Maybe try to catch Ohio SR 32 from US 50 near Athens, Ohio, great road and some nice scenery. It takes you to Cincinnati. From there, maybe get back on US 50 and head north as you please from there to US 36.

RE: Leaving COLORADO heading to Tennessee

US 36 is a much better road than I-70. D'oh! Yes,US 36 instead of US 34. I took US 34 to Nebraska and at Hagler took KS 27 south to US 36. I crossed Ks on US36 few weeks ago. But gets to Mo in the north. US34 is well north of that. While I like for fuel $ be spent in my home state, I think a more southern route across Ks, then across Mo, would be better way to get to Tennessee. Ok,safe travels. I've never been a big fan of I-70 so I tell folks to avoid it. Where in Tennessee are you headed?

RE: Indian Boundary

We stayed there for the eclipse in 2017. Truly an amazing campground- the swimming area is very nice & scenic. As far as the roads go, we didn't have any problems towing our TT (28'). Came in from I-75, through Sweetwater, Tellico Plains & no issues. You'll enjoy the area. Make sure you drive the Cherohala Skyway to Robbinsville, a great swimming hole at the end there as well.

RE: Looking for best route from Mesa east to upstate NY

To avoid 6% grades, you should take my advice from your earlier post. Interstates 10, 20, 30, 40, 65, 71 to Cleveland. That is my "snow" route to Ohio. I'd 2nd that suggestion. We travel from Cleveland down to the Phoenix area to visit family, towing a 5th wheel. My only other suggestion is if you're not crazy about that route, and want to branch off another way, avoid I-70. It's two lanes and can be too crowded, not very relaxing.

RE: Hwy 2 in Nebraska

How is this road from Lincoln over to I 29? Will be pulling a 36' fiver. Sandhills Scenic Byway Nebraska Route 2 is real real nice, a great alternative to I-80. We had a blast travelling it a couple years ago, from the Iowa border all the way up to Chadron. Floated down the river near Thedford.

RE: Tennessee/North Carolina - Cool summer weather

Waterfalls Brevard Check out the area near Brevard, NC "Land of Waterfalls," I bet you won't be disappointed. Thanks for that tip. Brevard has good weather for me. There's a Walmart in the area and Planet Fitness over in Hendersonville. Do you have any recommendations on a longer term park in the area with monthly rates? I found the Land Of Waterfalls RV park for $750 per month plus electric. That looks to be typical for prices in the area. And that's a great map of the waterfalls. I like waterfalls. Who doesn't? Honestly I'm not sure about long term-type RV parks. When we visited around 5-6 years ago, we stayed 4 nights at Black Forest Family Camping park, not sure what their policies would be on that. Maybe contact a chamber of commerce down that way. Good luck!

RE: Campgrounds along US St 36 in Kansas

I can recommend Lovewell Lake State Park as well as Prairie Dog State Park along US36. Stayed at Lovewell Lake on a trip back east headed eastbound. It's 10 miles north and 4 miles east from US 36, easy to get to with signs for directions. Lovely location on the lake amongst large cottonwood trees. Stayed at Prairie Dog SP headed back westbound to Colorado. Just a bit off the highway, there's several different loops with a variety of hookups available. Super nice SP, we stayed in a brand new loop with a great view of Keith Sebelius Lake to the south of the campground. H E R E - KS State Parks is the website that we used to locate these state parks. No reservations made in either direction, just was able to arrive on a Sunday and get a spot with no problems. Highly recommend these state parks. In a post above, it was mentioned about Long Branch State Park in Missouri. I can second that poster's recommendation, a great location and wonderful state park off the highway a bit, but easy to get to. Another place we stayed with no reservations. All of these trips were in mid-July time frame. We camped at 2 Kansas state parks (Lake Scott, Wilson), & a COE park called West Rolling Hills on Milford Lake. All 3 were fantastic- Kansas seems very under rated to us, we enjoyed it.

RE: Campgrounds along US St 36 in Kansas

It's a bit south of US 36, closer to I-70, but Wilson State Park is a real gem out there. We booked 3 nights, ended up grabbing a 4th night. Just real peaceful & great views, good swimming. If you're not into state parks, near Wilson SP is a COE park called Minooka, which we visited and it looked pretty good as well. I don't know how far along US36 you're going, but in Missouri near Macon is Long Branch SP, excellent as well. Safe travels!

RE: Has anyone camped at Willowtree RV Resort in SC?

Ruthless, I suggest that you find out whatever RV Park Reviews is called now and get used to reading them. Some people (like me) put in the effort to write these reviews so you can have the good information. Matt Agree. Campendium & The Dyrt are great resources as well.

RE: Help me plan my trip! North Dakota (TRNP) & Minnesota (VNP)

Wow, we're planning a similar trip. Regarding Voyageurs NP, I'm not crazy about the cost of this place but we booked it anyway Pines Of Kabetogama. For TRNP North area, I'm looking at Grassy Butte. Like someone else mentioned, the north unit doesn't have a bunch of options so we'll play it by ear. The TRNP South area, I'm looking at Sully Creek SP. We've never been to North Dakota & the state parks look so nice. I'm sure we will also stop at Lake Sakakawea SP or Graham's Island SP on the way home. Safe travels!!

RE: Kanab, Utah 84741

I 2nd Kodachrome Basin SP. Dark Sky RV Park is very very nice as well. Spent 4 nights there and it's the best private RV park we ever stayed at.
