Rickwood Caverns State Park, Warrior, Alabama

Date of Stay: July, 2017 - $27.00
Overall Rating:      

We overnighted here in July. It was not too far from interstate, but wonderfully quiet. There are only about 10 campsites, and they are layed in in a haphazard fashion, and very tight. We were in Site number three, and I was grateful there was no one in site 2. The surface may have been gravel at some point, but mostly covered in silt, making it sort of muddy. There is a nice pool area, and of course the caverns. Unfortunately we did not have time for the cavern tour. If I go there again, it will be to see the cavern, not for the campsite. The site was quite short, and we had to park our truck crosswise in front of our 30 ft 5th wheel. There are a couple of longer sites for motor homes, but we were not offered those sites. We camped at Rickwood Caverns State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Fall Hollow Campground, Hohenwald, Tennessee

Date of Stay: July, 2017 - $40.00
Overall Rating:      

We chose this place because it was close to where we would be attending a family function. Upon arrival, the host met us near the front entrance and showed up to a site. It had fresh gravel on it, but the sites around us were not level and coved in crabgrass. The other campers there (9 per 10) were permanent residents, about half were old, one had a door tied shut. The host cut the grass shortly after our arrival, as it was pretty high all around our site. Residents were quiet, but this is next to a 5 lane highway. Creek on property was nice, gravel bottom as typical of this area. The water source for the campground is one of the creeks, although the host said they have a good filtration system. No wifi, Internet, cable, or laundry facility, and the tv reception was nil because the terrain is kind of in a hole where the campers are. Our fire ring was full of old cans, sewer hook up for adjacent site was at the edge of our awning. Picnic table was broken and rotten, although the others looked ok. This is the type of place that would be worth $25 a night...not $40. We have stayed in worse, but I don't think we will use this place again. We camped at Fall Hollow Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Salt Fork State Park, Lore City, Ohio

Date of Stay: September, 2016 - $35.00
Overall Rating:      

Lots of great activities at Salt Fork, and I was pleased that it offers an off leash area for the pups. Sites were nice, some shaded, some open. We had a full hookup site that had lots of space. TV reception was good, we received 7 channels, but a neighbor said they only had 1. He commented our antennae had a "wingman", but you guys probably know what that means. Nice hiking trails and other things we did not have time to check out. I did not go into the restrooms, but I did notice the exteriors needed painting- but as many parks lack adequate funding, I can understand how that gets overlooked. We camped at Salt Fork State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Byrd's Branch Campground, Elkin, North Carolina

Date of Stay: September, 2016 - $25.00
Overall Rating:      

This is a very small private campground, only a year old. It is built on family land, and surrounded by cow pastures. EZ access from I-77, but really quiet! There are 2 full hookup sites, but they are separated from the rest, so we opted for a site with only w/e to be next to a small creek. Tent sites are on the other side of the road, but looked nice as well. Owners are super friendly and care about their facility. They also had a great list of places to eat, local wineries, etc. We camped at Byrd's Branch Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

If you enjoy reading, be sure to pick up Sarah's books! She has written several historical novels, which were a pleasure to read! You can find them on Amazon. Look for the titles by Sarah Martin Byrd...Color of my Heart, Guiding Spirit, and my favorite, River Keeper. ( I bought them in her little store)

Fall Creek Falls State Park, Spencer, Tennessee

Date of Stay: September, 2016 - $25.00
Overall Rating:      

Lovely park with several camping areas to choose from. Lots of deer, some lovely scenic views and nice hiking. The Nature center was not all that great- I have seen better, and the lady working there was not very welcoming, but I can get over that sort of thing. I enjoyed crossing the stream s on the suspension bridges. Our site was asphalt- but very unlevel and water drained to it. There are lots of sites to choose from, though- I can't remember what the number was that we were on, but it did have full hookups. The park itself is beautiful with a nice swimming area, lots of activity and gathering spaces, a marina, etc. We could only stay one night as we were traveling thru- but I would love to go back when we have more time. We camped at Fall Creek Falls State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Glendale Campground, Elizabethtown, Kentucky

Date of Stay: August, 2016 - $31.00
Overall Rating:      

Well, we stayed here because it is about halfway between Atlanta, GA and Milwaukee, WI. It is not a bad place, there is a pond and pool, lots of open space for kids to play, walk dogs etc. There were a lot of permanent residents, but enough campers to make it feel o k. Convenient ti interstate, and Elizabethtown has a lot of history. Owners gracious- lead us to the site in a golf cart, and dirt/grass site was very level. Lots of large trees. We camped at Glendale Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

The Narrows COE, Glasgow, Kentucky

Date of Stay: August, 2016 - $25.00
Overall Rating:      

Nice and quiet state park. Kind of off the beaten path, but but was easy to get to. Paved interior roads and gravel campsites. Most had nice views of the lake, I would not mind staying here again. We camped at The Narrows COE in a Fifth Wheel.

Clinton Lake State Recreation Area, Dewitt, Illinois

Date of Stay: August, 2016 - $25.00
Overall Rating:      

The park was clean and quiet. It seems most of the campsites are set up in a circular arrangement- almost like a cul-de-sac- but the sites are very spacious. Although the camping sites were well manicured- it goes right up to thick brushy, grassy undergrowth, very popular with rabbits! There is no view of the water from the camping sites that I could figure, so to see the water, one must go to the beach or the marina. We only stayed one night, so our visit was limited, but I would go back...especially if I had a boat! We camped at Clinton Lake State Recreation Area in a Fifth Wheel.

Tranquil Timbers Camping Resort, Sturgeon Bay, Wisconsin

Date of Stay: August, 2016 - $38.00
Overall Rating:      

we enjoyed our stay at Tranquil Timbers, although I have to say the nicest sites are used for the folks who rent them long term. However, you can tell there is a lot of pride in keeping the lots lovely for those who do rent seasonally. One of our neighbors has had his spot for 30 years! We were located on Cardinal Circle, and had wonderful neighbors. Most of them would come just for the weekend, but we met a nice couple who lived there during the summer. All in all a nice experience. Laundry and restrooms were very clean. Pool looked inviting. I never did find the camp store to be open. There are facilities for the kids to use- mini golf, ball field etc. Great place for a family vacation. I would stay at Tranquil Timbers again. We camped at Tranquil Timbers Camping Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

Tips for other Campers:

The Potowatomi State Park is an easy walk, adjacent to Tranquil Timbers.

It was an easy drive to Sturgeon Bay for restaurants and shops, and we also had an easy drive to see some of the parks and wineries a bit further north.

Waterfront Mary's is closeby for a decent dinner with a fantastic view! Stones Throw Winery was very nice, with bocci courst and a pizza restuarant on the premises. Loved the parks in the area- and one had a dog beach- although it was quite a hike to get to it.
