Sounds tempting - it's the weekend after our rally which is the weekend after we return from Sugar Creek, Ohio. So many travel ideas on the bucket list! We'll think about and see what we can do.

Thanks for passing along the tip on the festival. Marion is a really nice area, ringed by the Blue Ridge.

So....along with great parking, beautiful scenery, and outstanding conversation.....a local Festival too!!

Hope you and Ed can make it. And you could stop off at the Carolina State Rally.

Campground Info

Tom Johnson Camping Center

1885 Hwy 70 West

Marion, NC 28752

1.800.225.78

New and Used RVs For Sale, Service, Parts Tom Johnson Camping Center Concord (Charlotte) and Marion North Carolina


Their service department handles reservations for the campground. When you call, just punch the service #, tell them you are with the Airstream group, ask for a site on MIDDLE STREET. They will keep us all together. Couldn't get a rally rate but the $30 is fair for a very nice facility.

I have been there many times and have never seen it even approach being crowded. They close the automatic gates at nite but everyone has the #. It is one of those key pad types. Easy.

When you pull up the CG, the map you see shows it very well. Those roads and sites are all paved,with beautiful grass all in between. There are no trees, it is all open.
As you can see the MIDDLE STREET should work well, everyone backs in, facing each other. The sites are deep, the entry has a nice radius. Easy backing.

The Catawba River runs along that back edge. They have fire pits there for camp fires. To their credit, they don't allow camp fires at the site unless in one of those raised portable pit things. The river bank is a great spot for campfires anyway. Maybe 200 yards from our sites.

And also to their credit, they frown on "rugs" on their grass. No rugs are necessary anyway. You step out on pavement. They work hard to maintain a top notch facility.

There is also a beautiful Customer Service Building right there with spotless rest rooms, laundry, a huge lounge and a cafe. And wifi.

And even though they don't sell Airstreams they have a well stocked parts/camping stuff store next door at the main building. They have a surprising amount of Thetford stuff.

If you have any questions or concerns let me know. We can work out the details as they develop.

John

I did notice that the third weekend in march 2013 comes early that year. The following weekend may also work.

March is a beautiful time in the Carolinas.

John,

I think we are in pencil for this one, discussed with Linda. Need to check one additional schedule, but looking OK.

Tom Johnson == Nice Place

Missed the March rally but writing this one down. It's in pencil right now but all intentions to attend.

Camped at this facility earlier this year with my unit and it was quite nice. Great location for that time of year...
See ya then. tb

Gary, hope you and Linda can make it. Should be a nice change of scenery from the midlands. The views from the Parkway are splendid.

Count'n on you too, Pam. Heck, you're already half way there. BTW, have you added another trailer to the stable?

Lapper,

Nothing new in the AS stable, did get a little 13' fiberglass that I am fooling with. Actively working on helping a couple friends look for a trailer and you know what I'm steering them towards. Suffice to say it won't be stick and tin!!

All you Carolina folk, whether it be north or south, come on down to this rally!! Actually this rally site is centrally convienent to VA and TN too.

Thanks for getting it together. tb

Hey John, I think we will be able to do it. We won't know until a couple weeks before. I am going to make reservations anyway. Brett and Debbie
