DH and I are in our 60's. We enjoy history, and are looking for new places to go in the fall. We have been to many places along the East Coast (DC, Gettysburg, etc) and are willing to enjoy up to a month long "ramble" to learn more about the United States. We have a MH with toad. Question: What is your favorite historical site to visit and when you do, the best CG to stay in while there? Thanks in advance for sharing.


Two young retirees restless to GO!
Life is too short to wait too long to do all we want to do!!
Go and enjoy!!

Been to so many good places that's really hard to narrow down. We've completely enjoyed every location we've been to, and every campground has it's own uniqueness.

Last Summer we were in South Dakota and stayed in Custer, SD. The entire area, the Black Hills, and the Badlands are absolutely great! Most of the private campgrounds are all about the same. We stayed at Buffalo Ridge RV resort (which is just a Good Sam campground) in Custer, SD. But the really neat and awesome campsites were inside Custer State Park. So, Custer State Park is tops in my list.

We have visited EVERY state park and state recreation park in Indiana and every one of them is fantastic! Each is unique in it's own way.

We've also stayed at several State Parks in South Carolina, Georgia, and Florida, Kentucky, Tennessee, Ohio, Illinois, Minnessota, and Wisconsin over the years and every one of them was great! Every one we went too seemed to be the absolute best from all the ones before. Looking back, all of them were great!

State Parks anywhere in the mid section of the Country and you can't go wrong! The only one I would NOT recommend to anyone is Boonsboro State park in Kentucky, as it located adjacent a very noisy highway beside a stone quarry. Big trucks use their jack brakes coming down the hill and the stone quarry fires up very early in the morning. It's constant noise and there's no escaping it! That is the ONLY state park we've ever been to that was disappointing (because of the noise). Had it not been for the outside noise, it would have been a phenomenal park also.

Oregon State Parks are good options out west here. Have been to several and not disappointed yet. Also Jackson County Parks has some very good options but a couple of duds also.

Come see Niagara Falls and all the history here. We had several clashes with the British along the Niagara region.

We took a week vacation here long ago, with 3 forts, 3 battlefields, and even stops on the underground railroad.

Many years ago we stayed at Lake George Escape campground in upstate New York. It is at the southern end of the lake... at the northern end of the lake, after a really beautiful drive alongside the lake, is Fort Ticonderoga. Great place, loaded with history (from initial building to protect the northern approaches, to colonials dragging its' cannon down to fight the British), very well maintained and run place.

Don't forget the 'less significant' sites during your travels.
When you went to Gettysburg did you continue to the Harrisburg PA area and see Three Mile Island America's worst nuclear accident.

Or did you swing by The Rockville Bridge, it's the longest stone arch bridge in the world.

Next time travel to Pottsville PA, home of YUENGLING, America's Oldest Brewery. Even if you don't like beer, it's a very interesting tour.

Twin Grove CG is a nice place to stay. It's between Harrisburg and Pottsville PA. We've been there several times.

Jonestown KOA is another local CG.

Did you see the Flight 93 Memorial near Somerset PA.?

Don't just focus on the big sites, there is a lot of history everywhere. Get off the interstate and see America.

When you get near Cincinnati OH, stop and resupply at Jungle Jim's International Market.

Utah has 5 national parks. So far we've seen 2. California has several, too. Yellowstone NP is quite fantastic in Wyoming.
