So good to hear from everyone and your ideas on a location. Unlike billyg, I will still be working next spring so I'm inclined to pick a place within a half day drive from Nashville. I've found a campground near Crossville TN that might work, Spring Lake RV Resort. It looks like a nice place, has good facilities including two club houses, and their rates and cancelation policy are reasonable. I'll try to get by there to check it out and talk with the owner. Yoly, I hope it'll work out that you can make it wherever we end up!

We once drove from north Georgia to Long Beach, CA and back just to attend a birthday party so if the Gods are willing we just might make it. Obviously timing and available finances at the time will be a factor but we'll try. We've been retired for over 13 years so we're well adjusted [emoticon]

Cloudland Canyon State Park in GA. The east rim campground does have a picnic shelter in the middle. Not enclosed but a few tarps or shrink wrap could take care of that if needed. Lots of sites still open for mid April.

Considering a place with a pavilion instead of a clubhouse would be OK if we can expect comfortable temperatures. That might require sliding the time to late April or May.

Been chatting with Jimmy and Brenda (aka Ramp Digger) about your event and I thought you might like to check out a video I made in advance of a rally we attended for [email protected] teardrop travel trailers. This is a very nice campground also .... just an fyi [emoticon]

I just looked at Spring Lake Resort's web site and find it quite impressive. Probably better than my recommendations :-) Hope we can make it.

I agree! Just checked out rates at Big Meadows. Holy Smoke.....I have never paid that much for a campsite.

Unusual that they only publish the most expensive site rates ? The last time we were there we paid $40 for the riverfront site (maybe 4 years ago). I found the rates at Spring Lake Resort to be way more in line with my thinking also.
