We traded in our travel trailer last fall and downsized to a smaller model since it's just hubby & I camping now. We haven't been able to take it out yet!

Hubby wants to go back to a ruby mine in North Carolina. I need to look up a campground for us to stay at. Somewhere close to the smokies and we'll drive to the mine for a day or 2.

I'm off to do my homework! Anyone have a favorite place to camp near the Smokies?

We had a great time. It was so hot & humid in Arkansas we didnt have 1 campfire. Spent all day at the diamond mine and after that all I wanted to do was shower and enjoy the AC.

I'm craving fall camping. Leaves turning colors, campfire, nice cool evenings. Soon....

Guess what? I'm camping! So stinking excited. We spent 1 night in Memphis at Graceland Campground. Connected to the Elvis museum and right across the street from the mansion. With Covid we're not visiting any museums or being around any groups of people. We did walk by Sun Records & The Lorraine Hotel. Incredible to see both - especially the Lorraine Hotel. :(

Now we're in Arkansas at Crater of Diamonds state park. Going diamond hunting very shortly.

This campground is beautiful. So quiet. Very wooded. Probably won't have any fires because it's so stinking hot here!

We have a 1966 camper. I am craving a trip too, but with Covid issues, our favorite campsites are not an option this year. We are glamping at home, though, but boy will I miss our vintage camper rally!

Deb... lucky you... we are stuck around the house.. with property work and Well work.. then 2nd week of July old friends are passing through for a few days.. so it looks like camping won't happen until Mid-July.. but I can certainly camp out on the back of the property...
That being said,, we have rain coming in late Sunday till about Wed... oh joy...

Well, I did it! I reserved a campsite for 4 days at the Diamond Crater State Park in Arkansas. We leave in a few weeks. I'm so excited! I'm off to look for some good camping recipes/menus. Let me know what your favorites are.

Krista,, my daughter and her family,, pulled the 5-th wheel out back on their property and hooked it up to electricity and water,, and every couple of nights they set up the fire pit, and sit out and then when they turn in,, they sleep out in the 5-th wheel.. they love it!

Yep, back yard camping is fun,,,

My fingers are crossed for you. Our state is talking about shutting down again, so there is a chance we wont be going next month like we wanted. Only time will tell right now. Maybe camping in the backyard could be an option??

Deb, fingers crossed for you..
I miss getting out,, but we have 2-3 more weeks before we can go,, not because of COVID-19,, but because of all the work being done on our property... new well, driveway and plantings...

Deb, I hope you find what you need to head out for some camping. I love the Great Smokey Mt. National Park. That whole area of North Carolina is beautiful. Keep us posted if you can head out and post us some photos of your trip!

Grace, your area has been one non stop storm after another! Phooey on that!! Hopefully the patterns will change real soon and you can head out as well.
