About GaTripsters

With the arrival of grandbabies - one of which is over 800 miles away - we decided it was time to invest in a motorhome. We are thrilled at the opportunity to start traveling before the hubster retires. Our starter RV is a '92 Four Winds that is in excellent condition with only 55k miles on it and it runs great ... even smoother now that it has all new tires!! =) We are looking forward to traveling with our Pomeranian, Trip, who is so appropriately named on so many levels! haha!

Ottawa's Poplar Grove Campground / RV Park, Ottawa, Ontario

Date of Stay: October, 2017 - $32.00
Overall Rating:

We stayed four days. When I called to book our reservation, the staff was very friendly and accommodating. When we arrived, they were still very friendly. We were impressed with the park. It was very clean and organized. The sites in the "100" range only have electric and water. The "200" sites have 30-amp electric, water and sewer. The "300" sites are basic sites (no utilities). The "400" sites are 50-amp electric, water and sewer. There is a nice playground for kids, a tennis court that is in good shape and a putt-putt golf area that is usable but has obviously not been used in quite some time. They have an enclosed pavilion, indoor pool which we did not use but I saw others coming from the pool. Laundry room with 3 washers and 3 dryers. Near the trash dumpster are recycling cans. Each site has a paver patio, picnic table and fire ring. Firewood is sold by the office. Wifi costs $5/day and we were NOT impressed especially since I asked to be close to the wifi and they said I would not be disappointed. I was! I spent more time watching the circle spin around then I did watching anything on the computer. I wouldn't pay for it again. If we traveled more, I'd invest in a jet pak. Overall, the park is very nice and it would be ideal if it were not for the fact that they are located in the flight path of the Ottawa International Airport! The airport is 7.25 miles away so you get to enjoy the throttle down effects of the planes descent, similar to a jake brake in a semi. oh yay. =| We camped at Ottawa's Poplar Grove Campground / RV Park in a Motorhome.

Crazy Horse Recreational Park, Waynesboro, Tennessee

Date of Stay: April, 2017 - $25.00
Overall Rating:

Crazy Horse RV Park & Canoe Rental is located on the Buffalo River in very rural Waynesboro, TN with a first come, first serve policy. Gravel entry road is a bit rough. There are two sides to the RV Park. The north side of the bridge is the "family" side where quiet time is 10pm to 8am. It is a huge field with over ½ mile of waterfront camping: primitive and 30-amp hook-up sites available; however, at this time (4/2017) there was no WIFI on that side of the bridge. The owner says they plan to extend the WIFI in the near future. There are rest rooms and a dump station on the north side. The sites are grassy and appear level from a distance. It's basically a wide open field so motor coaches and longer rigs should have no problem navigating since there are no obstructions. The south side of the bridge is the not-so-quiet side of the campground where the canoe rental is located. Quiet time on this side is midnight - 8am. There are very nice, free showers & restrooms available behind the convenience store. WIFI is available up close to the convenience store but CELL service was weak - we have Verizon. Sites are natural ground but leveling our 26' Class C was easy. There was room to park a vehicle next to our RV within our site. Larger rigs may have trouble maneuvering these sites as there are quite a few trees and roots, burn rings and picnic tables. This side has a stage for summer concerts. Their on-site convenience store offers camping, fishing, and canoe rentals and supplies... and ice! There's also a general store across the river. The nearest grocery store (Piggly Wiggly), drugstore (Fred's) or gas stations (Marathon and Exxon) and restaurants are approximately 13 miles away. There was a restaurant a few miles from the campground but whenever we passed it, it didn't seem open. We stayed here from 4/9-4/13 and pretty much had the entire campground to ourselves with the exception of one tent camper. It was very peaceful. The owner was extremely nice and accommodating. The river is quite lovely. We camped at Crazy Horse Recreational Park in a Motorhome.

Georgia Mountain RV Resort, Guntersville, Alabama

Date of Stay: January, 2017 - $30.00
Overall Rating:

Upon our arrival, we couldn't help but notice the 5.1 mph speed limit sign! We got a good chuckle out of that, but I could swear that one lady was cruising along on her golf cart doing AT LEAST 5.5 mph!!! haha. We met the "Sheriff" at the gate. Park manager wears a baseball cap that says Sheriff and his golf cart has a blue light on top, so he patrols the park. We called him when we were about 15 mins out to alert him of our ETA. He let us in upon arrival, & led us to our camp site. Check in was as easy as handing him our card at the site, he swiped it with his phone, handed us a receipt, and voila! We were checked in. Easy peasy! All sites are gravel, long and spacious, and pull-thru. Our site could have easily fit two of our 26' Class C rvs and a long bed pick-up. I believe only permanent residents (along the perimeter of the park) have concrete pads. The park is set up so that all traffic flows in one direction. Big rigs should have no trouble maneuvering. We were quite pleased with the fact that the power (both 30 and 50 amp), water, AND sewer hook-ups were located alongside the rig in a grass strip, about 5' wide, that separates each site. So convenient!! Just a few steps from our rig was the bathrooms and laundry building - all of which were meticulous and roomy. We were there in January, so the grounds were bare, but I can imagine that this place is gorgeous in the spring, summer and fall. The grounds are well maintained and there is a pool patio area with picnic tables, benches, soda machine, a swing set for children. Also noticed horseshoes, a gold fish pond with a small waterfall, & walking trails. There are fire rings around the park. Wifi and cell signal were excellent. Park is pet friendly. The only downside was the amount of traffic noise we heard from the road, but when trees are blooming, it should buffer the noise. Everyone was friendly and nice. We enjoyed our stay. We camped at Georgia Mountain RV Resort in a Motorhome.
