About Boerne6

My husband and I are both retired. We purchased a Unity MB by Leisure Travel Van in 2015 and we have visited 22 Nat'l Parks since then. We kinda love the RV life and will probably live on the road in a couple of years.

Anderson Road Campground, Nashville, Tennessee

Date of Stay: August, 2017 - $13.00
Overall Rating:      

This campground is a bit of a hidden gem. It is an Army Corp of Engineers Campground on J Percy Priest Lake. There are only 10 sites with electric and water and 20+ primitive (dry camping) sites. You make reservations on recreation.gov and if you want W/E, you obviously need to reserve well in advance...which I did. Then I decided to extend the reservation by one day and the "helpful" gov't agent moved us to a dry camping spot. I didn't thoroughly check the reservation details so part of the blame is with me BUT then there is the agent...my new best friend. When we arrived he worked his magic. We had to move 3 times over 5 days but we had W/E for 4 of the 5 days. Instead of that last day dry camping we headed in for a staycation in Nashville...which is a 30 min drive. The W/E sites are level (dry camping..not so much) with plenty of space between sites. Relatively new circuitry. Elevated hose bib allowed for ease of attaching the filter and regulator. Clean, off the road, dump station. The views of the lake are beautiful. It would be great if they increased the number of sites to W/E and had more showers but they honor the America the Beautiful pass so we stayed 5 nights for 50% off. Not bad! So the agent is my hero and exploring Nashville was a blast from our haven at the lake. We camped at Anderson Road Campground in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Go into Nashville. A relatively easy 30 min drive. Franklin is also well worth the trip but it will take you 40 min.

What a gem of a spot! It's smack dab in the middle of a D.C. suburb in Maryland AND it's 8 miles from the metro station AND...wait for it...it was $13/night!!!! (Senior citizen discount for the win!) We camped at Louise F Cosca Regional Park in a Motorhome.

Shenandoah Hills Campground, Madison, Virginia

Date of Stay: July, 2017 - $51.00
Overall Rating:      

I rarely leave reviews but this campground has gotten such bad press that I decided I needed to review. We were going to stay at the Nat'l Park but realized that we could t run the generator at all so plans quickly changed. I chose this park because of the proximity. So many reviews said that the staff was rude but I completely disagree. The staff was very hospitable upon arrival and the office/camp store was clean and fully stocked. There is a security gate which is another plus. The roads were pitted but have you ever been to any Thousand Trails? I rest my case. We had a pull thru with 30 amp, water and sewer. 50 amp is available. The site was level. The bath house was very clean and even though the showers were pre-set temp and timed, the temp was perfect and the time was long. FYI...The cable was standard definition only (only matters to HD snobs like us!). Overall it was a great base camp for us and we will keep it in mind for the future. We camped at Shenandoah Hills Campground in a Motorhome.
