Hopefully DH and I will make our long put-off trip to explore the "Western Theater" of the Civil War this Fall, maybe next Spring. Starting near Fredricksburg, Va. Want to go to Shiloh, Vicksburg, and then follow Sherman as he went East. Also want to explore Chattanooga and Lookout Mountain. Anyone done this? If so, any suggestions as to roads to take, where to stay? State parks OK. No boondocking wanted. Plan on making it a month long experience. Any other 'don't miss', 'don't bother' or 'must sees'? Hoping to pick your brains! We also have access to military campgrounds, and are Passport America members. Whatever info you share will be greatly appreciated. Traveling in a 33' Class A, with toad. We're both almost 70 and not really into a lot of physical activity, but love to wander!


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

The areas your looking at include a lot of Corps lakes. Check them thorourghly, with a Golden age or other pass, the savings and locations should both be "golden".

I you are an Elk the Elks lodge in Vicksburg, MS has 50Amp and water. I would recommend a call to see if they accept non Elk members, as in our travels some do.

Not much to choose from when camping around Vburg. We stayed at Rivertown Rose Campground, not a bad place

x2 on Holiday Travel Park on the Chattanooga/GA line. You exit in TN, drive about 1 mile south over the border, you hit the park.

We stayed at Raccoon Mtn campground many years ago just West of Chattanooga....it worked....but many permanent trailers there and the whole place looked 'bad'. When we found Holiday, we have not looked back...stayed at Holiday maybe 6 or 7 times....on our way to FL.

When you tour around Vickburg I highly recommend staying at Grand Gulf Military State Park. It's about a half hour away from Vickburg and has it's own Civil War history along with some redoubt sites, a small museum, and an interesting cemetery. A few dozen camping sites, the lower 10-20 would be easy access. We happened across this a couple years ago. The staff was wonderful and it's a hidden gem I've kept on our list...almost hate to make it 'not so hidden' by publishing it here [emoticon]
