Crooked River State Park in the St. Mary's area of Georgia has been getting rave reviews lately. We are thinking about trying that area the end of October/early November. And then you aren't that far from St. Augustine, FL, which is a must especially of you're into history.


Our 2351D Phoenix Cruiser, Jack, has turned us from campers into RVers and loving it!

It will be COLD until you get east enough to get the ocean breeze. Then it'll be cool. We HATE Myrtle Beach, just too much! Too much traffic, people, etc. We enjoy smaller parks and ocean destinations. If you like the crowded cities, try Myrtle Beach, but even North Myrtle is too much for me. Head a bit further south (warmer, too) and check out Hunting Island SP (outside Beaufort, SC). Campground right on the beach. Jekyll Island is really a fun trip, but you will also still be on the cool side in February.

We were in Miami last year at the end of February and it was in the high 70s, but up in GA, it was 40 degrees. At home in the mtns of Va, it was 10!

Gulf Shores, AL, Destin, FL, Pensacola, FL are all great visits. If you are wanting warm temps, you must head to south Florida and good luck getting a reservation there.

HAHAHA, I live in SC and I hate MB in the Summer. In the off season it is not bad at all. We have been able to park right smack in front of the Sky Wheel in the winter. Off season a good time to visit and do non beach things as they are not crowded at all.

However, MB is really a tourist trap.

Try staying in Huntington Beach State park. Some FHU the rest W&E, You can walk to the beach. They have a great nature lodge and have ranger talks in the lodge and outside. The home of the Huntington's can be toured for a small fee. Drunken Jacks in Murrell's Inlet is a good place to eat.

Double ditto. Huntington Beach SP is our favorite SC coastal camping spot.

Tripple ditto on Huntington Beach.

Funny thing. The beach is HUGE. When they dump sand on Mrytle Beach to save the beach the sand works it's way down to Huntington and makes it bigger. Something about the jetty at Huntington helps make this happens.

We discovered another gem a couple of years ago on the opposite end of SC state. Paris Mountain State Park just north of Greeneville, SC is a gooder. It's close enough to Greeneville to visit but it's also on a small mountain. Greeneville has a nice downtown park. We liked the easy trails for our tired legs.

Just a couple of suggestions for St Augustine. We stayed at an RV park, North Beach Camp Resort...great sites AND it is directly across the highway from the beach. In St Augustine, we took the Old Town Trolley, a wonderful way to see all the historic places in the town. If you like museums, the Lightner Museum is wonderful!

Since my husband is a Nascar fan, we drove down to Daytona and toured the track there.

Was in Montross to pick up a trailer for a friend and I ate at Angelo's Pizza and seafood restaurant. I had a seafood platter and I had no complaints. The pizza looked good too but being so close to the Chesapeake Bay seafood was on my eating list, not pizza. Not much else in Montross either to eat at, it's pretty small.

Ken56 is absolutely right! Angelos in Montross is about the only good choice. There is a place called Yesterdays (we don't enjoy it) and a small Mexican Restaurant that has some good choices, but Angelo's is honestly the only place in Montross I could recommend.
Colonial Beach has several, including Suki's, a great Thai place with awesome Pad Tai! January 6th - an area update. Covid is running wild in our county, particularly in Colonial Beach. Would suggest not visiting now if that's possible.
