Favorite Places to Stay

We pretty much have our spring and summer booked. Our favorite place is Shenandoah N.P. and the Blue Ridge Parkway. We'll be heading there May 18th and returning after Memorial Day. We did this trip last year in our popup. We'd like to make it all the way to Smoky Mt. N.P. then back up I 81 and over to Loft Mt. to finish the trip. We'll see how far down the parkway we get this year depending on gas prices! We'll be going to East Harbor S.P. in June, Parker Dam S.P. in July and a week at Stuart Rec Area in W.V. in July. In August we'll be staying a weekend at Greenwood Furnace S.P. and a weekend at Coopers Rock in W.V. Sept. Mohican S.P. in Ohio.
As you can tell, we really like state and national parks. Let us know some of your favorites. We're always looking for new places to visit. Maybe we'll see a fellow Sunline Club member on one of our trips. That would be great!
Our top three within 5 hours of our home are Hocking Hills S.P., Ohio, Letchworth S.P. in N.Y., and Coopers Rock,W.V.

My favorite has always been Worlds End S. P. in Sullivan county, PA. Coming in a close second is Ricketts Glen S. P. which is about 1/2 hour away from Worlds End: If you enjoy hiking and waterfalls, you must go there.

If you want to camp alone in a twenty-site park, try places that DON'T take reservations. For instance, S.B Elliot State Park (PA). Check it out on your way to Parker Dam.

Here is another one worth looking into (remember first come, first serve), it does get busier than S.B. Elliot:

No shower houses keeps out the non-serious campers. A very quiet place too.

Ray and Lynn ........ While you're in the Amish area of Ohio at Mohican, if you have time, stop at Evergreen RV Resort at Mt. Eaton. It's located at the northeast corner of "Amish Country" and while not inexpensive, it's the nicest park we've ever stayed in with very nice people staffing the place.

Have fun this summer wherever you go.

On edit: Just noticed that Evergreen is one of the top rated parks in the latest "Highways" magazine.

Thanks for the suggestions! We've been wanting to go to Ricketts Glen as we've heard it is beautiful there. We'll be sure to check out SB Elliot while staying at Parker Dam.
We really like the Ohio Amish vicinity and will definately stop at Evergreen RV Resort. They really needed a nice campground in that area. We looked at their website and WOW. The place looks fantastic!
Thanks again for the suggestions!!!!

our two favorite campgrounds are Otter Lake in the poconos and Fort Whaley in md.this year we decided to try something different for our trip to md. so we are trying Island Campground Resort,I'm sure we will find other favorites too as we eventually get to travel further from home,but that's not gonna be until our youngest boy is a few years older and not so rammy on the road.

Our favorite because we always seem to make a trip there each fall is Narragansett RI. Fishermans Memorial State Park is a beautifull park, just a short bike ride from State beaches, Point Judith (lobstermen, Block Island Ferry), and Igy's home of the best chowder I have ever tasted.

Come on up into New York. Excellant places all along Lake Ontario up through the St. Lawrence river. Our favorite area is in the Thousand Islands. Plenty of State Parks at very good prices. Some have sites right on the waters edge. Sit under your awning, enjoying the great view of boats and ships from around the world sail past.
If water is not to your liking, there is plenty of mountains and valleys to enjoy.

Because 2 of our kids are in Virginia we tend to spend alot of time there. A couple of our favorite National Forrest Service parks are Grindstone in Mt. Rogers Rec. Area and Sherando which is near Waynesboro. We also enjoy Claytor Lake State Park. Douthat State Park is good for hiking and mountain biking.

I love to stay at Seven Point on Raystown Lake, BUT, fat chance of getting reservations for there. "IF" I lived closer, I could pop over there in the am, maybe find an available non-reservable lot, pay for it. You have 2 hours in which to occupy it. And I'm like 2.5 hours from there, could maybe shave a little time off but I'm not into speeding with Sunny, or anyother time for that matter.

Also like the local YogiBear at Maryland exit 1 on RT 81, but they put in a water park and new lots so price went out of sight. W & E site weeknights went to 41 bux, NO WAY. I don't use all the stuff for kids, and that's what your paying for.

SO, now I'm looking for new places.

Still planning to leave July 10th and head west for 5 or 6 weeks

That is REALLY my FAVORITE place to camp.

Kitty

We are on the Ohio State Park circuit as some of our favorite places around home. Being in central Ohio the weather can be a bit unpredictable to say the least. So we check the weather and then just figure out do we head North, East, South or West.

There are 4 parks that are our favorites. All within 1 ˝ hr from home as the longest one. Some day “The Camper”, DW and I will make it out west and up into Canada. Traveled there for work and been out camping there in a tent with the Boy Scouts and want to repeat with the “The Camper”. Some of our National Parks are breathtaking and so is the Provincial Parks in Canada.

So you can see a taste of the Ohio Parks system see these 4 favorites and 1 extra.

Close to Home. Central Ohio. We go to Delaware State Park It’s an older park but big, lots to do and not so crowded on the main lake.



Here is another medium sized park. Western Ohio. We go to Lake Loramie A really hommy atmosphere about it.



And last year right near there, we visited this Ohio Healing Field. You can see the date, we will never forget.


Also sort of mid north west, a larger park, we go to Indian Lake State Park . This park is big and lots to do in the area. For us we can get there in less than an hour and we miss all the city traffic.


Heading south we have many State Parks. We often go to this one Cowan Lake State Park. It is a medium sized park with a large 10 hp only lake with camper beach. Very nice.

Here you can see how the weather changes. This is April


And this is same site in June


More due south we have Hocking Hills State Park. We generally do this park in the spring.


There is a lot of natural beauty in this area to hike and go see. It can take many days to weeks to see it all. This is a shot of a water fall within Old Man’s Cave park.


And the same water fall from my son in law who has a fancier camera a year ago. If you look hard, the rocks have not changed, but the water and green did


Traveling north east we have West Branch State Park This one we only get to once in a while as it is 2 ˝ hrs from home. A very pretty area and the camp grounds have just recently been rebuilt.



And a view from that same camp site out my camper rear window.


It’s hard to just pick just one. And as you can see, we are "Tree Campers" and like lots of them arround along with a lake near by.

Hope you enjoyed a little taste of Ohio State Park camping.

Happy camping this year which ever direction your travels take you.

John

A New York favorite of ours is Sampson State Park on Seneca Lake, south of Geneva. There are two great military museums (US Air Force and US Navy) on the park grounds along with a nice marina. The park is in the beautiful Finger Lakes Wine Country and is great for day trips to a lot of interesting sights in the area.
