RE: Natchez trace

DW and I drove the parkway a free years ago. One of our best experiences was at Grand Gulf Military Monument Park. It has good campground and a great museum. We will definitely go there again if we are back in the area We enjoyed our trip very much. We should have given ourselves more time. it took us 4 driving days but 10 days total because we stayed 2 or 3 nights at the campgrounds that we started at.

RE: Private property parking

Try I know you have to pay if you use it to find a place to stay but not sure if you are offering a place to stay.

RE: Leaving dog at campsite

I have found that many dogs do bark when left alone. One time in Ohio there were two dogs, one on both sides of us that barked for hours while their owners were gone. I finally went to the office and complained. The owners were at one of the campers before I could walk back and luckily one of the dogs owners just got back. They were told they could not leave the dog unattended. They said their dog does not bark, but the CG owners had heard it barking. The people wanted to leave again without the dog but we're told that was not an option. Another time in Alaska a dog barked for hours and hours. Most dog owners may not believe it but there are times that their dogs do bark when left alone. That is why we do not have a dog. It is not fair to the dog nor to the other campers left to hear the barking. Just my humble opinion.

RE: Paid Caravans to Alaska Worth it?

We have some friends that took a caravan to Alaska and enjoyed it. A couple years later they went back on their own. DW and I went to Alaska the year I retired in 2012. The whole trip was 114 days and the cost was just about $10,000. Gas was the biggest expense, but the price of gas is lower than when we went. We still keep in touch with a few of the folks we met on the trip. For us the cost of going with a caravan is not worth it, but we know there are people that enjoy going with others. Have fun whatever you decide.

RE: Are campgrounds more crowded or is it just me?

Also with a lot of the big tourist attractions closed people are buying campers. When the virus started getting places closed I thought it would be a good time for us to get a new camper. I was wondering. I have a friend that used to work maintenance at CW that told me that sales are way up. These folks are going camping somewhere.

RE: Family National Parks Road Trip

I once took my teenage daughter and two of her friends on a similar 21 day trip. We left from middle Georgia to South Dakota, Yellowstone, Washington, back to South Bend Indiana with a lot of places in-between. There were some moments but overall a great trip that 25 years later we still talk about it. Since then my wife and I have gone back to many of those place and spent more time. Have a great trip.

RE: How do you summer travel?

I agree with the above. It is real nice being over 62 and can stay in Corp of Engineer Parks at half price with the national Park pass. Also some National Forest campgrounds have electric hookups and with the national Park pass. Next comes Passport America. You can usually find a park for about $20 or a little less. Many cities and counties also have low priced campgrounds that are nice. I do check campground reviews on all parks before staying. Back in the day, I also wanted to stay at Walmart, but for me I found them too noisy to get a good night sleep. Enjoy camping

RE: Southside RV Park Tucson, AZ

With all the nice places to stay in Tucson, why this park? I want to stay at the Air Force Base but they don't take reservations. I don't want to make reservations else where hoping to get in at the base. Just looking at other options. 2

RE: Southside RV Park Tucson, AZ

Last January we stayed at "Vista Del Rey Mobile Home & RV Park" in Tucson for a week while visiting friends in the area. The cost was $160 for 7 nights. I believe it was a PPA park at the time. There wasn't much going on there but it was quiet and no one bothered us. The caretaker was friendly. We would stay there again at that rate. Thanks for the reply. I saw that park while looking at parks in the area. Some of the reviews were mixed but the fact that you would stay there again is very helpful.

Southside RV Park Tucson, AZ

We are going to be in Tucson at the first of March. Does anyone know about this park. I found it on Passport America, but there are not any reviews at If not do you have any recommendations in Tucson. I am not sure when snowbirds start leaving but I am thinking that most of the area campgrounds will be full and it may be hard to find a place. Thanks

Space Heater

We use a small 1500W ceramic space heater that is not adequate. Today we looked a Lowes and saw a much larger heater, but is was also only 1500W. So my question is what kind of heater would be better. I know we could use the propane furnace, but prefer to not have to when we have electric hook-ups.

RE: St. Louis Recommendations?

We visited the Arch last year. We had reservations at the Casino Queen RV Park, but ended up staying at the Famcamp at Scott AFB, but fill that the Casino Queen would have be a good option.

RE: 2020 planning

Have fun. We plan our trips around National Parks and visiting family. In January we start a 100 day trip to visit close to 40 National Park sites out west. In September a two month trip to Pennsylvania and Maryland to visit family and only 10 National Parks. If course NP include monuments, battlefields, and such.

RE: trailer size and campsites in National Parks

We have a 31ft TT and sometimes it is a problem at some of the National Parks. We are looking to go to Mt. Ranier some day and may have to stay outside the park. However we currently have reservations at Organ Pipe, Joshua Tree, and Death Valley. It helps to be big planners and make reservations early. Have fun.

RE: Alaska Marine Highway

Recent news item Hopefully they get this nonsense resolved. We are not going in 2020 so surely they will get it worked out before we are ready.

Alaska Marine Highway

The wife and I took an inside passage cruise for our honeymoon in 1997 and took our TT to Alaska when I retired in 2011. We would love to go back within the next few years and take the Alaska Marine Highway from Prince Rupert to Haines with stops in Ketchikan, Wrangell, Sitka, Juneau, Petersburg, and Haines. Would also like to visit Glacier Bay. Currently we have a 31' TT but would probably downsize before the trip. We plan to call the Alaska Marine Highway and get information from them but was wondering if there any RVers out there that have made this journey and what was your experience. Thanks
