We felt bad about arriving at this campground on Thanksgiving day. That meant the camp host had to interrupt her holiday to check us in since the office was closed. We learned that we were the first of seven check-ins that day and the camp host was very cordial, friendly and welcoming to us. Still, we felt bad that we arrived on a holiday.  Destin Army Infantry Recreation Campground The gate at Destin Army Campground We mentioned before that the campsites in this park are tight. Three people in campers near our site volunteered to move their trucks to give us the sp ..read more

One of our goals is to never arrive at home after a Rosie adventure late in the day. (Rosie is the name of our Airstream trailer.) Since we cannot store Rosie at home, we have to empty and clean Rosie before taking it back to the storage facility. Rosie parked while we were checking in Having said that, this is the second time we camped there because it allowed us to reach home early the next morning, which is a shame because this should be a destination type park. It has great bike trails and many waterfront sites.  Similar to the previous campground we stayed in, the lake l ..read more

We camped in a Tennessee State Park last year during Halloween and were surprised to find out that children trick-or-treating was a big deal there. We ended up going on an emergency run to the store to get Halloween candy after our camping neighbors warned us about that park's Halloween tradition. It was fun and made us think about being ready for little ghosts and goblins, or little Barbies and Darth Vaders this year, when camping in Rosie, our Airstream trailer, during Halloween.  Not wanting to be surprised by any Halloween traditions in Points West Army Resort FamCamp, we called ahe ..read more

We waited until checkout time before we left our wonderful site in a military FamCamp and headed west for our next Rosie adventure. (Rosie is the name of our Airstream trailer.) Gulf State Park was less than an hour away, so we didn’t have to rush to get there.  We have a running joke about Gulf State Park's campground. It seems that every time we have reservations there, the rate increases between making our reservations, paying our deposit and arriving at the park. As we expected, we were informed that we owed more than the figure quoted on our reservations while checking in. This ma ..read more

Before discussing our adventures in this campground, we need to talk about an event that happened since our last trip in Rosie, our Airstream trailer.  We store Rosie inside a warehouse we call “Fort Rosie.” Of course, the owner of that facility has another name for it. We occasionally drop by to see Rosie while parked in storage. These visits are more for our peace of mind. On one of our visits to Fort Rosie, we noticed that the new property owner had a crew painting the warehouse buildings. It is always good to see the owner working to improve the facility.  We had to go back to ..read more

We knew that our trip home from the Blue Ridge area would be difficult because we had to pull Rosie, our Airstream trailer, through Atlanta and there is no optimum time to to travel Atlanta's roads. Both Google and Apple Maps were optimistic and suggested that traffic flowed without problems through Atlanta. We knew how quickly that could change and become a nightmare forcing us to arrive home too late in the day. We decided we needed to stop for the night after passing through Atlanta and made reservations at R. Shaefer Heard Corps of Engineers (COE) Campground. We thanked the volunteers for ..read more

We had reservations in one of Duckett Mill COE (Corps of Engineers) campground's 108 campsites. Then we received an email from Recreation.gov saying that campground was closed for the season.  Out first thought was that the campground was about to be renovated, but that didn’t explain why they confirmed our reservations only to cancel them later. Then we started seeing people comment on several online forums that their reservations at other COE campgrounds in Georgia were also canceled. Our questions were answered when we saw a news story saying multiple COE campgrounds were closed becau ..read more

I knew the camping loop we wanted when I called to make reservations in this military FamCamp. There was only one site available for more than a week, so I quickly booked it. When I asked if the site had a view of the lake, the response was “I don’t know” followed by “it’s the only site available.” Sign at the entrance to the campground Sign just before the security building where military credentials were checked Our expectations were low and we decided to drive straight to our site after we passed the ID check at the gate instead of driving to the office and checking in ..read more

We were exposed to COVID and decided to leave the Cajun Caravan one day earlier than planned. We called All About Relaxing RV Park to see if we could arrive a day earlier than our reservations. The park was full, but we could stay in their overflow area with 50 amp power and water connections. We quickly agreed and hitched up for an early morning departure.  We left Louisiana before sunrise. Our tire monitor system hadn’t registered with all of Rosie’s tires when we pulled out of the campground. (Rosie is what we call our Airstream trailer.) When it did, the alarm told us we had low pres ..read more

Nearly everyone on a WBCCI Caravan has an opportunity to help the group through an assigned task and our duty was to serve as parkers at this campground. That meant we left our last campground two hours earlier than the other members and traveled to this park with the caravan leaders. We quickly unhitched and set up Rosie, our Airstream trailer, because we knew there were about 20 more Airstream trailers headed to this park.  Following the leaders to Bayou Wilderness RV Resort Sign at the entrance to the campground Our jobs were simple. I stood at the entrance to th ..read more
