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 Trolley...you 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! gatlinburgtrolley.org 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 (thefitrv.com) 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.

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.

RE: 2020 North Carolina Camping Destinations

We like Stonebridge RV in Maggie Valley...short distance to Cherokee...and not far from Transylvania County where so many beautiful waterfalls are located. We also stayed at Homeplace RV in Ararat, NC, and visited Mount Airy ("Mayberry") not far away.

RE: campgrounds in destin or pensacola fl

We stayed at Camp Gulf in Destin a number of years ago. It is literally ON the beach. I don't remember the rates.

RE: RV Parks in or near Fargo, ND

Last June we stayed a night in Casselton ND which is about 20 mi. west of Fargo. The Days Inn at exit 331 has a full hook up campground and the restrooms and showers are in the motel. Rate then was $44 Thanks, hornet28...I messaged that Days Inn and they said they still have that rv park (full HUs). That Days Inn is pretty sketchy. It’s one of the few places we’ve pulled into and pulled straight back out again. Which direction are you coming from / going to? We are going to Cannon Beach, OR...and then through Montana and North Dakoto on way home to MS

RE: Things to do in Biloxi/Gulfport MS

Thanks everyone. we are staying at Gulf Beach RV Resort. definitely doing the National Seashore. I remember looking somewhere online there was a maritime museum with buoys and stuff outside along with indoor exhibits, but have not been able to find it. I mentioned this in my post..maybe it's what you are referring to. Gulfport has the Institute for Marine Mammal Studies..dolphins, sea turtles, seals...I think you need to make reservations online.

RE: Things to do in Biloxi/Gulfport MS

My suggestions: On Hwy 90 along the beach, watch for the wood sculptures made from trees that were downed by Katrina...they are beautiful. Gulfport has the Institute for Marine Mammal Studies..dolphins, sea turtles, seals...I think you need to make reservations online. Biloxi has a lighthouse and my favorite restaurant there is McElroy's HarborHouse. The Beau Rivage casino in Biloxi has the BEST Sunday brunch, including delicious bread pudding for dessert. Take the bridge over Biloxi Bay to Ocean Springs, MS. Visit the Walter Anderson Museum of Art (beautiful watercolors) or Shearwater Pottery. And Aunt Jenny's Catfish Restaurant is famous there. There used to be so many fun places along the beach for children, but so many of those businesses were destroyed by Katrina. btw, if you need an RV park, we have stayed at Majestic Oaks in Biloxi...not on the beach, but a few streets away. We have also stayed at Cajun RV on Hwy 90, Biloxi, and I think it had damage, but I believe it is now open. Go to gulfcoast.org and scroll to the bottom of the screen...you will see "Visitor Guide"..digital or they will mail you a copy.

RE: Beach Stop When Travelling from WI to Orlando

You might like North Beach Camp Resort just north of St. Augustine. Lots of stuff to do on a 4 day stay. The beach is just across the street, and the inter-coastal is behind, along with some great restaurants. You could park and ride the trolley tour through St Augustine, getting on and off where you want. We have stayed here...I agree, North Beach Camp is a great place to stay! And X2 for the beach, the restaurants, and that wonderful trolley tour through St Augustine, as well as the Fountain of Youth park, the Lighthouse, and the Lightner Museum.

RE: RV Parks in or near Fargo, ND

Do you realize that there is a showpile in Fargo that is 75' tall, and will be there till July or august?? We're not planning to go there just now...maybe in the summer. I'm just getting some ideas of places to stop.:)

RV Parks in or near Fargo, ND

If anyone has stayed in Fargo, I would appreciate any recommendations on RV parks, full hookups. Thanks

RE: Yellowstone / Old Faithful area

I agree with others about Grizzly in West Yellowstone. It's close to the entry of the park...and on the way to the park, stop at the Visitor Center and get maps and info. We stayed there a few years ago and found it very convenient...and it is a nice RV park. Plus, West Yellowstone is a small town, but with some good shops and places to eat. If you don't see a lot of wildlife on your drives through the park, visit the Grizzly Wolf and Discovery Center just blocks from the RV park..and get a close-up look at the beautiful wolves and bears.

RE: Trip West

We’ve taken several trips “West”. One of our favorites was to Utah. On the way, we stayed in Cortez, CO (Cortez/Mesa Verde KOA) and went to the Mesa Verde Indian ruins. In Utah, we stayed in Moab (Spanish Trail RV Park) and made it our “base” while we took day trips to Arches Natl Park, Dead Horse Point State Park, Hole in the Rock, and a beautiful drive…Scenic Route 128 which is accessed from the city of Moab. We also took a trip to Monument Valley and Four Corners. Another time we visited the Grand Canyon…stayed in Williams, AZ at the Grand Canyon Railway RV Park, and rode the train to the Canyon. Williams is a neat little Route 66 town. In 2012 we went all the way to California, up the coast to Cannon Beach, OR. Beautiful! In CA, we stayed at a place called Casa de Fruta. It's not a town, but a place with an RV park, a motel, a restaurant, and a market with all kinds of fresh fruits, nuts, and wine. I know you will enjoy your trip...so much to see and do!

RE: Toyhauler with outdoor kitchen

RE: Yellowstone / Old Faithful area

No question the Grizzly rv park in west yellowstone is the very best around and its only probably less than a mile from the entrance and down to Old Faithful should only take about 30' providing you don't encounter a crowd watching Bisons or some other wildlife. The Rocky Mtn park over the Roosevelt gate is a nice park but its not Grizzly and its much further away from the Old Faithful site. Besides being a very nice RV park just outside Grizzly in the town of west yellowstone you have many eateries, and other accomodations that you find in most towns except there is no Walmart around there. You cannot go wrong with Grizzly in my opinion having visited the area some five times over the years. I agree! This is where we stayed...Grizzly RV Park is very nice...and West Yellowstone is a small, but neat, little town. As you start to Yellowstone Park, there is a Welcome Center, where a Ranger will provide maps and information...absolutely get a map of the park...Old Faithful is in the lower loop (which was the prettiest to me). The upper loop has a waterfall. Of course it's all beautiful. The only "wildlife" we saw were buffalo. But we went to the Grizzly and Wolf Center in West Yellowstone and see them up close.

RE: Ol' Blue

I was so sad when Debbie passed away. She shared so many good recipes and so many beautiful pictures. She published a little cookbook and I ordered a copy. She was a lovely person.
