My point in my previous post was that they only publish the deluxe river front site prices and the deluxe sites which are exorbitant at $67. The rest of the park has cheaper site prices but their web site doesn't mention them .... that's what I found peculiar.

I guess that means the campgrounds at Nashville/Opryland are out then at $100 a night [emoticon] Big Meadows campground looks nice but might be a bit small. Same for the loop at Cloudland Canyon with the pavilion. Not that I expect 20+ rigs to attend but need to allow for outsiders to take up some sites. I should be able to get by Spring Lake sometime in the next few weeks and find out if its a go or if I need to look elsewhere.

A little further east, but Grayson Highlands is a beautiful campground with a lot of things to see and do near by. Depending on dates for the event I would be interested in attending.

Sorry for the delay folks but MIL had a stroke so we've been dealing with that the last few months. I've never been to Grayson Highlands but it's on my bucket list ... even if just to see the wild ponies. Trying to stay closer to home this time though due to MIL's health. Even then I can't say for sure we'll be able to attend so it might be a "self-service" gathering. I've talked to the folks at Spring Lake RV Resort in Crossville and so far so good. Should be able to make an announcement after the holidays.

Hope your familys health improves, that is most important. maybe some place close to Nashville. Or is that to far from where you all live. Family is for ever. I heard there was a army corp of engineers near Nashville

I fully understand how difficult and time consuming it can be looking after elderly family members with health issues. Maybe this could be an event someone else could take the ball and run with this year? I would be willing to help in any way I can. It would be great to get together with other TC'er folks from the Southeast.

Devildog below is a link to their website. I don't know a ton about the Nashville area but I am sure at least one of these sites could work.
