RE: Western NC activities

Cradle of Forestry, NC Arboretum, Cades Cove, Cherohala Skyway, Mingus Mill, Nantahala Outdoor Center, Biltmore, Cataloochee, Blue Ridge Parkway, Joyce Kilmer Memorial Forest, Great Smoky Mountain Railroad. Lots of great camping spots in the National Parks and National Forests if you don't need hookups.

RE: NC State fairgrounds campground

We've stayed there a few times when we needed to be in the Raleigh/Durham area. Its convenient, secure, well lit, reasonably priced and easy to get into and out off but its just a place to stay and nothing more. Basically, a large gravel lot with no vegetation; sites are reasonably large and they have full time on-site security. I'd prefer to stay at one of the nearby state parks or state lakes but the gates on these are locked at night (hours vary seasonably) which is a no go if we're there because of family medical issues. I don't know how crowded it might get on a holiday weekend but we've never seen it more than a 10-15% full. Any event at the nearby equesterian center or fairgrounds might impact occupancy.

RE: Big Bend

Been saying I would go for years. Was thinking about using Seminole Canyon SP as a stopover from Houston. Anyone have experience there? We’ve stayed at Seminole Canyon a few times when traveling from my wife’s family in Baton Rouge to Big Bend. For us, its a great stop to break up the drive and, even though we always arrive after hours, finding a good site has never been a problem. It’s not a destination but easily worth a half day of exploring the Native American history in the area if you have the time. There are also several primitive sites available just off US 90 around the Amistad NRA. As someone posted earlier, Big Bend is a Park you’ll either love or hate - it’s been one of our favorites for over forty years.

RE: Camping near Biltmore Estate

Our preference in the Asheville area is the Lake Powhatan Recreation Area campground in the Pisgah National Forest. The misnamed Lakeside loop has large paved full hookup sites. This would be my pick as well. Be sure to visit the NC Arboretum which is right next door.

Drop an email to Old Coleman Parts and you might also post on Coleman Collectors Forum I used the first link to find an igniter for my liquid fuel North Star but don't know too much about the propane models

RE: Using a tow vehicle as a windbreak while boondocking

Having tent camped at Cape Hatteras and Cape Lookout National Seashores on the NC Outer Banks for over fifty years, I've seen some pretty good storms roll through. I've used my vehicle as a windbreak, filled coolers with sand and placed them inside the tent to hold it down and flipped picnic tables over to reduce their profile and tied my guy lines to their skyward pointing legs. Its interesting to check out the campground dumpsters the day after one of these hits. I've got a couple of functional EZ-Ups pieced together from wind damaged units that were discarded. And several of the NPS staff who work there have told me they haven't bought any new camping gear in years. Whenever we suffer through one of these, I'm reminded of Lyndon Johnson's comment on the Viet Nam war as I approached draft age in the mid sixties (paraphrased as I'm sure this isn't exactly accurate) "Being President right now is a lot like being a jackass in a west Texas hailstorm. I can't run. I can't hide. And I can't make it stop."

RE: What is your favorite COE CG in Georgia

We've only stayed at one in GA, R. Shaefer Heard, in West Point and thought it was terrific.

RE: Outer Banks National Park Service campgrounds

Do the Oregon sites have Water and Electric? From the website it looks just like electric. Website a little confusing, perhaps because I look at at when I wake up at 5am and am not functioning on all cylinders. While the site says water hookups when you look at reservation section I see electric hookups but no mention of water. We want to do Outer Banks but that trip will probably be in a year or two. Have looked at the commercial CGs, any comments on those? The NPS Oregon Inlet campground has 20-25 sites with both electric and water hookups. I'm not sure of the amperage as we seldom camp there but have seen some big boys plugged in. Camp Hatteras, KOA and Ocean Waves (all in the Rodanthe area) seem to be the most popular commercial cgs. We prefer the more laid back atmosphere found further south around Buxton and Hatteras. Frisco Woods would be my choice there for hookups. Shade and understory vegetation for privacy are pretty much non-existent at any of the Outer Banks campgrounds. The commercial ones pack you in way too close for my liking. The NPS sites are typically a good bit larger and the Frisco campground south of Buxton is located among the dunes has several secluded sites (but no hookups). Hope you're able to visit with us soon.

RE: Outer Banks National Park Service campgrounds

With the possible exceptions of the W&E sites at Oregon Inlet and over the Labor Day weekend at all four NPS facilities, you will not have a problem getting a spot at any of the Cape Hatteras National Seashore campgrounds at any time from now through the end of the season. Just check for the number of open sites for any day(s) in August and September. We live about a hundred miles from the OBX and camp there frequently - the only times these fill is Memorial Day, Independence Day and Labor Day.
