OK... We're In!

Danielle and I booked site # 41 at GMF. We are looking forward to the weekend. Don't have a canoe, kayak or any other water craft and we don't play music. But we enjoy spending time with other people and we LOVE our Airstream. We'll be there on Friday and plan to go home on Sunday - I gather that's the drill for this event. Watching a movie, weather permitting, sounds like fun and the food sounds great - we'll do whatever we can to contribute. See Ya then.

Off Topic... Campground Suggestions

I'm looking for a campground in north GA for Labor Day weekend. I've checked all the state parks and I've checked several COE parks and they are full for that weekend. So I'm looking for private campgounds - must be north of Atlanta. Any suggestions?

We're pretty flexible - water and 30A electric would be good, full hookup is always nice. Shady if possible. Does not have to be on water. Prefer a reasonble space between RV's. I want to stay in GA if possible but would consider going over the state line anywhere from AL on the west to SC on the east including TN and NC. We store our Airstream in Cumming so I prefer to go east, north or west from there - not south.

I know it's late to be considering Labor Day, and that weekend will be crowded, but I just don't think we can wait from now till Oct 20 for our next camping trip.

Scanning the Campgrounds post on this forum gave me some ideas but I just wanted to throw the topic out to this group.

Thanks

Yes, all the reservable sites are taken. However, the helpful assistant from McKinney gave me some good tips on how to lay claim to the un-reservable sites.

The assistant said to call a few days prior to Labor Day weekend, determine how many un-reservable sites are open, go to the campground in person, pay for the site and stake your claim. This may result in paying for a few unused nights at the campground but it gets you a spot. However, I prefer to plan a little more in advance so I'm looking for additional campground suggestions.

Thanks

Try DeSoto State Park in Mentone, AL. That's a nice campground.

I know you want to stay north of Atlanta, but FDR State Park in Warm Springs south of Atlanta is really nice and may have some sites left. We will be there from Thursday 'til Monday of Labor Day Week End. Traffic would be a bore getting through Atlanta, but it might not take any longer to get there than some of the places in N. AL. or N.C.

Did you try Unicoi SP up close to Helen, GA. Stayed there a few times and was always pleased.

My map is for the states that I stay in with the Caravel. My wife and I have been campers for a long time and if I was to guess I would say we have been to about 20 states. Just thought I would start fresh and keep up with our AS travels.

BTW - the lodge at Unicoi is great for Thanksgiving. They put on a feast and have a wonderful lodge feeding hall - I would recommend it for a holiday retreat.

i'm looking forward to seeing your caravel at the rally! in addition to my '64 Trade Wind, i have 2 friends bringing a '64 overlander and a '66 globe trotter. it's amazing how different all 3 of these trailers are. none of us have the same types of windows.

we'll most likely be bringing a couple of vintage aluminum boats as well.

I had a few days vacation and so took off sans wife and kids and grabbed a few days solo travel. In part curiosity, I went up and stayed for two days at the GA Mountain Campground! I think we are going to have a great time when we get there in October.

Because we have a 34', I checked out the sites and actually moved our site to #71 for our fall get-together. It looks like sites in the 80's are ground zero for our activities. Sites in the 60's and 70's are generally good and close - not on the water, but kind of up above the 80's - but close. 40's and 50's are right on the water - very nice.

My wife would kill me if I went off and played golf during our outing, but for those who enjoy the sport there is a great 18 hole course at the Brasstown Valley Resort. A little expensive, but very nice! Just so you know.

I went kayaking a couple of times while I was there. While it was a wee bit warm, we will have some great kayaking/conoeing for those interested!
