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

RE: Georgia Toy Hauler Camping

We stayed at Leisure Acres RV Park in nearby Cleveland, GA...short drive to Helen. It's a nice park, full hookups, a small lake. We did not have a toy hauler when we were there, but you might check with them.

RE: Roswell NM

We were there a few years ago and stayed at Town & Country RV was nothing fancy, but it was fine for us. It's fairly close to downtown. The UFO Museum is really neat...I think your son will enjoy!

RE: Showing Off Our Travels

On our 1st TT, we placed stickers on a storage door on the outside. When we were selling it, I took off the door, bought a new one and installed, and that stickered door resides in my garage. ON our next TT, we began collecting simple post cards and displaying them all over the inside...every nook and cranny that could hold a card (think the small gaps between wall trim, the fridge, etc.). When we sold that TT, we have those cards in a cigar box. On our Class C today, we are doing the cards. But, I have stickers too (though I just put them up for some reason and don't use them), and fridge magnets. I put a few thin metal bars, bought from Menards, in the C that the magnets stick to. I think there are many methods...everyone has their own take on it. I like the idea about the Postcards. I think I'll try that! Thanks

RE: Advice on Campgrounds

To Howdy35 re: trips to Nashville, Gatlinburg, Memphis, Ashville We have two favorite rv parks in the Smokies...Twin Creek RV Resort just outside Gatlinburg is a nice park with a little creek and privacy and it is a stop for the Gatlinburg can ride it to the town of Gatlinburg or the Arts community...even to Dollywood...for a very nominal fee. I enjoyed it because we never had to take our vehicle out in the traffic, plus I could shop while my husband stayed in the park! has a map of the scheduled stops. We also like Stonebridge RV park in nearby Maggie Valley. It is nice and has a creek in the back and, if you have pets, there is a big field for them to play in. Maggie Valley is small, but has some nice places to eat or shop. Right across the highway is a place where they carve bears from wood with chain saws. And not too far away is the town of Wayne, which has a great Pizza place...and near Brevard are some beautiful waterfalls in Transylvania County. The closest place to Memphis that we have stayed is at one of the casinos in Tunica, MS, which is about 50 miles from Memphis. I have heard good things about Tom Sawyer RV Park, which is on the Mississippi River, but we've never stayed there. And I think they have a couple of RV Parks near Graceland now, but again, I don't know anything about them.

RE: Planning a trip Yellowstone, Mt Rushmore, Deadwood Etc.

It has dawned on me I have never planned a trip like this before and I am almost 60. All our RV trips have been short with a single destination camping, Disneyland to the coast Etc. Do you use a trip planner to plan your stops? We plan to do more of this in the future so I am curious when some of you plan trips across the Country how do you plan it or do you just take off and look for a place to stay when you are tired? We are planners! We start out by deciding what places we want to see along the way. I do some internet research of places we want to see. Then we reserve RV parks ahead of time at or near those places. We've taken several long trips and almost everything has worked out. My husband is a retired trucker, so he knows most every highway in the country. I put our itinerary on the computer and print it to keep in the loose-leaf notebook I take with me and write in along the way--things we have seen or done. I also go to a website ( Do a search for 'checklists' and you can print lists for everything you might need to take for the trip. Yellowstone is awesome..we stayed at Grizzly RV, in W Yellowstone, which is just a couple of miles from the entrance to the park...and near that entrance is a Ranger station where you can get info and maps. Deadwood is a neat town...lots of old Western history...and if you go to Devil's Tower, there is a KOA RV park RIGHT at the entrance. For Mt Rushmore, we stayed at the KOA in nearby Hill City. There is beautiful scenery in Custer State Park, with lots of buffalo...and a Bear Country park you can drive through and see bears, wolves, etc. I have probably written too much, but long trips can be as fun as they are challenging. I know many folks like to "wing" it, but I'm always afraid I will miss something if I don't do a little planning ahead. Enjoy your trip!

RE: Need Side Dish Recipes

Jebby, we are going to attend a rally in April...the information said the main meals...meats, etc. will be provided, but they are asking for side dishes and desserts from those of us attending. From the list, it looks like it will be a large crowd. I appreciate any and all suggestions.

RE: Need Side Dish Recipes

That sounds good...and easy! Thanks, johnna

Need Side Dish Recipes

We are going to a rally in April...and providing side dishes and desserts for some of the meals. I know what I'm making for the dessert, but need some ideas for a side dish, other than just potato salad, baked beans,etc. Thanks for any suggestions!

RE: Land Between the Lakes

We have stayed at Hillman Ferry Campground...and would recommend it. Some of the sites are on the lake.
