Deam Lake SP or Charlestown SP

Coming from the Indianapolis area heading to Chattanooga area and looking for a park around Louisville. Crossed between Deam Lake and Charleston SP. Reviews aren't that much different so it's sort of a toss up. Charleston has fewer open sites for the date we need. A 26' B+ needing electric only, but want level site. Trees are a plus but it's only for a night, so not a deal breaker. Which would you opt for & why? Or is there something in that area that's better? thanks

RE: Unusual Rental Motorhomes

I believe they're called a Class B+ (for marketing purposes).

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

I can't believe how snarky some people can get. Yes the reviews are great, but I also often post a similar question here to get an up close personal view of a particular park that I am interested. Some folks have asked why this forum is dying. Well people, remarks like these are often the reason. Ask away if you will, many of us will help if we can with useful information rather than snarky insults. Camp On

RE: Skull Island, TN

Thanks Ken. We pulled the trigger & made reservations for the first week in May. We'll see. We're still researching eateries and such in the area, but there doesn't seem to be a lot to choose from. Guess we'' bring the old Cobb grill and cook our own.

RE: Cold Smoked Cheese

I also use Cabot Seriously Sharp. I also have two smoke tubes with the pellets, but I much prefer a different method of cold smoking. The pellets & smoke tube tends to leave a metallic taste in my opinion. So I use wood chips in my home made contraption. I use a Campbells soup can with the top removed & a 1/2" hole near the bottom on a side. Insert a cheap Harbor Freight pencil soldering iron (about $5.00) & fill the can with alder or pecan or apple chips and plug'er in. Don't use anything harsh like hickory or mesquite. I place my cheese on the warming rack on my gas grill & rotate position after about a good hour of smoke. Can of chips generally last a good 2 hours. Best yet!

Skull Island, TN

Planning a week at Skull Island Campground, north of Chattanooga. Looks to be a pretty nice place with a very interesting name. It is a TVA park, which generally are nice, and has good reviews. My question is, if anyone is familiar with it, are there any good eateries, or interesting places near by. Thanks

RE: Texas Hill Country

Depending when you go, DO make the Willow City loop if in the spring. The wild flower fields are unbelievable. Then of course there's Lukenbach. Another gotta see for us.

Skull Island

Thinking of staying at Skull Island Campground in May. Read the reviews, but still looking for more insight. Any comments, pluses or minuses. What to be aware of and what not to miss in the area. Example: we went to the Jerry Lee Lewis Family Museum and Liquor Store. But it was closed. I mean come on who else could have his museum in a liquor store. Things like this we just have to see! So how's Skull Island?

RE: My fault

Planning our first trip of the year for April/May. Second & third trips are already figured out. Yeah, right! What happened is the first trip was postponed to become the third, so now we're filling the first. With having to make reservations most every where and trying to avoid previously stayed at parks it gets tougher all the time. Still got a tone of pic to sort & label from last year. Oh well!

RE: Pet Peeves in RV Parks

Our peeve is also trash in the fire pit. Only to be topped by cigarette butts all over the campsite. If you must throw your butts down, at least throw them into the fire ring.

Foss State Park, Oklahoma

Any input about Foss State Park? Appears that the park has a couple or so campgrounds scattered around the lake. Any thoughts as which is best for an day or two. 26' Class C wanting 30 amp & water. Sewer is nice but not needed. Will be traveling from St. Louis to Amarillo, TX. Thanks

RE: CGs Near Osseo/Eau Claire, WI w/o Minimum Stay Requirement?

On our trip last year couple of campgrounds did have that rule, but if you don't make reservations and keep an eye on the number of open sites, walk ins are not required to book two days if there are nay openings. And if passing through we just had to have that campground for one reason or another just pay for two & leave when you must. I know it isn't the most economical way to do things but it works.

RE: Good weekend site with full hookup

I'm glad to see someone appreciates my situation.

RE: Good weekend site with full hookup

She who must be obeyed amended my request to water & electric sites rather than full hook up. If that matters. Thanks for all the good info and the search goes on. We're not looking for this plan until late April or early May so we have plenty of time. RV is winterized and put up for the winter & we're just whiling away time awaiting spring and planning future triips. Thanks again.

UP with hookups

We are thinking about a trip to the UP, and even upper WI, this coming summer. We want electric & if possible water hook ups, full hook up is a plus. Not really fond of private/commercial parks, preferring state, county or municipal parks spending a day or three at each, pending location, amenities, etc. We'd be coming from St. Louis, MO & more than likely up through WI, but MI is not out of the question. Any suggestions, ideas or warnings? thanks

Good weekend site with full hookup

Since I'm being particular, I'm looking for a good weekend site with full hookups between Souix Falls, SD and Omaha, NE. Not fond of private parks that are like a parking lot, but much prefer either state parks or corp of engineers parks. County or municipal parks can also be very nice. Much rather see trees & nature versus another campers awning or sewer line. thanks

RE: Chicago tolls

Thanks a bunch. Really appreciate the info.

Chicago tolls

Leaving Elkhart, IN heading to Illini State Park, past Joliet IL. How many tolls will I encounter? I tried to circumvent Chicago tolls once and went through some unsavory areas of town. Rather not do that again. Driving a 26' Class C if that matters. Thanks

George Wyth State Park Campground, IA

Any words of wisdom about George Wyth State Park Campground? Gonna try to spend a weekend there in late April on our way to Palisades State Park, SD. Read the reviews & tried to find photos of the campground, but personal input is always best. thanks
