RE: Figuring Mileages

I find the Good Sam Trip Planner to be real helpful. It hasn't let me down yet. I also use Google Maps as a reference.

RE: CG Suggestions

I can give you a few great state park campgrounds in NW Ohio- Harrison Lake, Maumee Bay, & Mary Jane Thurston. All three are very nice, & the rates are decent. If you choose Harrison Lake, it's not too far from Sauder Village and would be a less expensive option than Sauder Village CG. Wineries & golf courses are nearby, along with decent sightseeing. In Kentucky, check out the Land Between the Lakes area. Lots of good camping options there as well. The other side of the state has the Cumberland Gap, which would have some great sleeping weather in the fall.

RE: Planning a trip to southeastern Oklahoma

I'll 2nd Beavers Bend SP. Another good one is Lake Wister SP, great views of the water.

RE: I 70 in Ohio to Somerset PA staying off PA turnpike

The PA Turnpike is in good condition, but yes,it's pricey. The EZ pass actually will save you some money, I'd get it if I was you.

RE: Hall county park or Mormon Island SRA, Nebraska

Can't help you with those Nebraska stops. Check out the Bessey Recreation Complex near Halsey, NE, nice spot. https://www.recreation.gov/camping/campgrounds/234120

RE: Lexington KY to Dayton Ohio

US 68 is a decent road that we've taken to avoid Cincinnati.

RE: TX-146 to Avoid Houston

Bail off 10 at Winnie and go down through the Bolivar and take the ferry across the bay. The ferry will handle what ever rig you have. The ferry is free. I 2nd that. Easy peasy and not a lot of traffic.

RE: Best/Favorite RV Resort

I get what you're saying, but if I were you I'd still consider mixing it up and stay at some state parks as well. Arkansas SPs, for example, have many FHU sites starting around $25, and they are very very nice. We've been to a few "resort" parks over the years, and most have been pleasant. I just prefer to save $$ on camping fees so I can get more beer, golf, or a good steak on the trips.

RE: I-90 Through Cleveland

Great thanks for the replies, I'll just stay on I 90. I'm a native Clevelander, it's not bad at all unless you hit the morning or afternoon rush hour.

RE: Trip to Texas

I hear a lot of people say they have trouble getting reservations. I had no problem getting reservations anywhere. My destination reservations were made two months ahead of time. But the one stops coming and going were made about 2 weeks before leaving. I guess if you want reservations in the summer,holiday and on weekends it's an issue. But i had no problems. Some of the campgrounds were fairly full but others had plenty of spots. Yes, you just need to be spot-on on your plan for reservations. State parks in Michigan, Ohio, & New York get gobbled up pretty fast, and I'm sure that's not all. Our son & his family are in Texas, and that's a great place to camp when the weather isn't too hot. I think we've been to 12 SPs and to Big Bend NP, haven't been disappointed in Texas camping yet.

RE: Park Reviews

I agree with most of what everybody has commented on here. When I'm planning my trip I use a few sites to help me out...campendium.com, thedyrt.com, & I will peek at Good Sam ratings only if I'm looking at a private park. We tend to go to state parks/ COE parks. Funny thing to me is how many folks mention wifi, and the good/bad of it. Lots of folks must be working remotely in their RV nowadays.

RE: Grand Isle SP, LA

Following this... It's a place I've looked in to visiting, but we aren't fishermen. It just looks like a nice place to go and disconnect from everything.

RE: Reservation Entry RMNP 2021

This is a bad idea. These are our NP's! We should be able to go when we want! we were there last year and trying to get in was terrible because of the timed entry. We ended up with a 3:00 entry. And they are charging to get the timed entry. Hopefully this practice will stop. Agree. We are making our 1st visit there this summer and here I thought the America the Beautiful pass was good enough. While it won't deter us from going, I'm wondering if we'll get shut out now.

RE: Hwy 36 across Kansas

Funny you mention this, I've already booked a couple places in Kansas this summer, on the way home from Colorado. We've never camped in Kansas. Lake Scott SP, then on to Wilson SP, up north to Cawker City & the world's largest Ball of Twine, then across US 36 to Macon, Mo and Long Branch SP. Hey, I've met a few folks from Kansas at various campgrounds, and they say to skip Kansas, but I want to explore. The SPs in Kansas look pretty nice to me, so why not.The state parks at the KS lakes are not bad. It sure looks like that's true. Kansas Dept. of Wildlife & Tourism sent me a bunch of info on the state parks, which I appreciated. I looked at Prairie Dog & Meade, Kanapolis & Elk City too but we just don't have the time to hit them all up on this trip.

RE: Trouble on the border

We were in Big Bend NP during Thanksgiving 2020, and encountered no problems whatsoever. Plan your trip and enjoy the scenery!!!

RE: campground reservations

This year is going to be like last year....no way close to NORMAL, so reservations will probably be needed for any tourist area or anything close to the interstate system. I you KNOW where you are going to be, go ahead and reserve. Agree. When you're definitely knowing where and when you want to go, book as soon as possible.

RE: Nebraska Rt. 2

Thanks for the replies. Looking forward to exploring the plains.

Nebraska Rt. 2

We are heading out to RMNP this summer in our 5th wheel, and looking into taking Nebraska Rt. 2. We already made reservations in the Neb national Forest near Halsey for a couple nights. So I'm torn with continuing west on Rt. 2 to Alliance, then up 385 to Chadron SP, or heading north on US 83 to Valentine, then west on US 20 to Chadron SP. We'll probably book Chadron SP for 4 nights. Looks like either way will be scenic, I'm just asking if anyone thinks one of the two plans is better than the other. Any input is appreciated.
