RE: Campgrounds around Zion national park

YES to Zion River Resort! There is a drive (can't remember name of the road) across from the rv park that zigzags in and out of Zion for some nice scenery.

RE: Taco Soup

My go-to recipe for Taco Soup is from my Weight-Watchers days: 1 pound lean ground beef, at least 93% lean, browned 1 cup chopped onion (1 medium-size onion) 1 can (14 to 15 ounces) petite diced tomatoes, undrained 1 can (10 ounces) tomatoes with chiles, undrained aka Rotel 2 cans (14 to 15 ounces each) beans (kidney, pinto, black or chili), rinsed and drained (I use kidney and black) 1 can (11 to 15 ounces) corn, undrained 2 cups water 1 package (1.25 ounces) taco seasoning I put all in my slow-cooker for 2 or 3 hours

RE: February trip south on the East Coast

Just a couple of suggestions for St Augustine. We stayed at an RV park, North Beach Camp Resort...great sites AND it is directly across the highway from the beach. In St Augustine, we took the Old Town Trolley, a wonderful way to see all the historic places in the town. If you like museums, the Lightner Museum is wonderful! Since my husband is a Nascar fan, we drove down to Daytona and toured the track there.

RE: Big 5 National Parks in Utah

Planning a trip next spring to visit the National Parks in Utah for the first time. Will be pulling a 26' travel trailer with a diesel pickup. Will be starting at Arches and ending at Zion. Would like to know routes that would be relatively easy for pulling a travel trailer and proceeding from Arches to Capitol Reef to Bryce to Zion. Main concern would be tough switchbacks to maneuver a trailer. I am aware of State Highway 12 as a scenic route that is doable pulling a trailer. Not sure of other routes over the landscape other than travelling on Interstate 70. Also, any recommendations as to private campgrounds would be appreciated. Thanks! Not a National Park, but Dead Horse State Park is worth the area of Arches. Beautiful scenery, one being the place where 'Thelma and Louise' of the movie, drove off at the end of the movie.

Taco Soup

Anyone have a really simple recipe for Taco Soup? I want to make some and put in the freezer. A friend has a recipe that sounds a little complicated and she puts cream cheese in hers. Not sure how well that would freeze. I had an old Weight Watchers recipe, but can't find it. Thanks

RE: "My pet is home alone" tags

Thanks for the reminder & info. I always use my printer at home to print out cards about our dogs...I just simply type: "we have two dogs in our RV at (a blank line for park name & location)" I also make cards for info about (who to call) in case of an accident, etc.

RE: Atlanta to Grand Canyon with 10 days

Wow! Just checked back in and there are a lot of great suggestions here. I believe you have talked me out of going to the Grand Canyon. Just not enough time in 10 days. So, we have decided to go to the Smokey Mountains/Gatlinburg/Pigeon Forge area. This will allow for the most time enjoying one another's company and seeing sites and hiking. I really appreciate your input. It is great to rely on other people's experience and not have to make the same mistakes. Any MUST SEEs in the Smokey Mountains? We often take trips to the Smokies. In Gatlinburg, we have stayed at Twin Creeks RV's just outside Gatlinburg, and there is a stop there for the Trolley that will take you downtown. Our favorite RV park is StoneBridge in Maggie Valley. It's not as "busy" as Gatlinburg and not far from Cherokee, NC and Brevard, NC (which is in Transylvania County and home to numerous waterfalls and the actual Cold Mountain). There is a drive 'Cades Cove', but it is usually bumper to bumper. There's a neat little Pizza place (Nick & Nate) in nearby Waynesville and also a Mast General Store that's fun to wander through.

RE: Rapid City, SD area RV park

Mt Rushmore KOA will fit the bill. Hundreds of RV sites. Cabins from small to multiple bedrooms. Water park, Bar. Restaurant. Wine tasting. Horses. We were there last month and had a great time. I agree...great place! We stayed here while visiting Mt Rushmore..Custer State Park and Bear Country drive-thru nearby.

RE: Pigeon forge

We have stayed at Twin Creeks RV in Gatlinburg...just a couple miles from town. Nice park, creeks running alongside and back...and the trolley to Gatlinburg and other nearby places has a stop right in front of the park. We have also stayed at StoneBridge RV in nearby Maggie Valley.

RE: The Highlands

Thanks for the responses. After reading, I realized that we have been in that area...near Transylvania County where all those beautiful waterfalls are located. I'll check out some of the RV parks posted.

RE: Food!

I am a big fan of Slow Cooker/Crockpot cooking. Put whatever you want early in the day and let it slow cook. I love to make chili (there are lots of good "chili mixes") or beef stew or vegetable soup (frozen veggies with some chicken broth...add meat if you like), a roast with Campbell's French Onion soup (great for 'now' or for sandwiches 'later' can even shred some for Tacos), chicken breasts that can be used in soups or as a main dish with sides...or...add BBQ sauce for a good sandwich. The internet has lots of recipes, some with just 2 or 3 ingredients. Try this site:

The Highlands

A friend told me about her trip to The Highlands in NC. We have been to several areas in NC, but did not know about this. Her description sounded beautiful! Have any of you been there? If so, can you recommend an RV park? Thanks

RE: What is your best Potato Salad recipe

I use my Mom's recipe for Potato Salad. It's not totally "traditional", but all the family loved it. She very seldom "measured" when she cooked. She peeled and boiled potatoes. When they were "done", she drained them really well....then mashed them. Then she added some boiled eggs, chopped; a small amount of diced onion; sweet pickles that she chopped herself (she never used relish because she said it was "sticky": some chopped pimento; then mayo,a "tad" of mustard, salt, pepper to taste. Along with her potato salad, she made wonderful chicken salad and Thanksgiving dressing. Thank Goodness I watched her through the years and finally wrote down her "recipes".

RE: Mississippi Coast campgrounds

We stayed at Cajun RV park before Katrina. It had damage and was closed for a while, but it is back, I think. Our favorite park is Majestic Oaks. It is a couple of blocks north of the beach highway.

RE: Gatlinberg, TN and Ashville, NC

We really like Stonebridge RV Park in Maggie Valley. A pretty little stream runs behind the park. Sites are good...and there is a big field if you have dogs. It's a fairly short drive to Cherokee...and you pass a beautiful waterfall on the way. Maggie Valley has restaurants and places for groceries. And not as "busy" as Gatlinburg. When we have stayed in Gatlinburg, we use Twin Creek RV. It's just a few miles from town and it is one of the stops for the Trolley, if you want to go downtown, but don't care to drive.

Ocala, Florida

My husband was reading an article in one of his magazines about Ocala National Forest, so we might try and take a trip there in the Fall. Could anyone suggest RV parks nearby...we need FHU. Thanks for any info or suggestions.

RE: Yellowstone in October

Grizzly is one of the most beautifully landscaped RV parks we have ever stayed in and it is right next to the Grizzly and Wolf sanctuary where you can get closer to wolves than you ever wanted to. We have stayed at Grizzly and agree with your post...and the Grizzly and Wolf center is neat and within walking distance, as is the town of West Yellowstone.

RE: Recommendations for Moab campground

We stayed at Spanish Trail RV Park in Moab a few years ago. FHU and mostly pull-thrus and level sites. It is just a couple of miles south of Moab. Please check their website.

Louisiana wetlands drives

We're thinking about taking a short trip to Louisiana...looking at Abita Springs, which looks like a nice small town. We mostly just want to relax and take some drives. I'd love to take a swamp tour, although we're not sure about group activities just yet. But we would like to see some of the scenery. Any suggestions or recommendations on scenery or drives will be appreciated. Thanks
