Around here I would recommend Hilton Head Harbor RV Resort. Hiltonheadharbor.com
Hilton Head SC is a great beach with many great restaurants and 45 minutes from downtown Savannah and 2 hours from Charleston SC. You could tour charleston and savannah one day and relax the rest. The resort is very upscale and has many high end RVers. It has a boat dock, nice restaurant and pool on the water.

If you do decide to come to Hilton Head PM me and il send you a guide of the area. We are locals and can suggest several places. We will even take you on a ride on our boat in exchange for a tour of the airstream. We are a young family also in the market for a AS so I always like to hear how other families like their experience.

I would also suggest Hunting Island state park which is nearby. You could even do both
huntingisland.com

No mountains, but Fort Pickens Campground down on the Gulf at Gulf Islands National Seashore near Pensacola looks interesting...Fort Pickens Campground- NPS

Our normal weekend getaways, North Abutment Campground, a Corps of Engineers park in Grenada, MS and Yocona Ridge Campground, George Payne Cossar State Park, Oakland, MS are great spots for all of the above.
A little closer to you are J. P. Coleman State Park in Iuka, MS, Trace State Park in Pontotoc, MS, and Dewayne Hayes, a Corps of Engineers park in Columbus, MS. These are all beautiful parks with all the qualifications you listed.
Of the bunch, J. P. Coleman is the most beautiful.
Will y'all be able to get away Memorial weekend, Fourth of July, and Labor day?
I'm sure we will be in our usual spot at Grenada Lake (North Abutment) or Enid (Yocona Ridge). I should make reservations now for Memorial Day at Yocona Ridge. I miss my pet deer there.
Are you a TAC member? I am considering getting some TAC rallies together for those holiday weekends- but you ain't gotta be a TAC member- come if'n ya want to-

For lots of options and scenery too I vote for Elkmont in Great Smoky Mtns. You can get your feet wet there and return with the kids another time! It is about 4.5 hours from Birmingham but take the north route into Gatlinburg with the trailer. It MAY be too far but just a thought.

If you want to mountain bike in NC Tsali is the place to go. The mountain bikers rave about it. I am sure there are some camp grounds close by.

There are spots at Elkmont the last two weekends in June but only two the third week in the count. Nothing the first two weekends of June. There is a meadow campground too but I am not familiar with it. Umf.

I posted earlier today. It doesn't surprise me on the difficulty getting into Elkmont. In the past, you have to make reservations the minute they are available if you want to get on the river. But a couple of other choices that are great too are Ft Mountain and Cloudland Canyon State Parks. Ft Mountain has a very nice lake to swim or paddleboat around in.

Most army crops of engineer CG's are nice and usually on the water. We stayed at cotton hill and Eastbank in GA on our shakedown outing in December. Would go back to either. Check availability on www.recreation.gov.

Maybe not for an anniversary get away in June, but tishomingo state park in MS is nice. The kids had a nice time there. It is about 2.5hrs. from you.

Vogel state park is awesome! we stay there every year in October. there is a gorgeous lake that you can canoe on and fish, there are many nice hiking trails and you can walk around the lake to the back side to see the waterfall. there are also other waterfalls close by to see and the really cute Dutch town of Helen Georgia that you can park and walk around. the town of Hiawassee Georgia has a nice camp ground on a lake also.

Here is one of my favorite campgrounds...


http://www.reserveamerica.com/campin...O&parkId=71356

Walk over to the swimming beach with some bread slices, sit in the water and break up the bread and you will have a swarm of fish around you.

If you can bring a boat, the many coves are stunning. The clear water is beautiful.

Bring ice, the nearest store is +10 miles.

What an amazing offer !!!

Too long a drive for us for that trip but that area is on a short list for us so we will hunt you down likely in 2015!!!

Thanks everyone else for all the amazing ideas - I'll be looking through them in detail this weekend and make a final choice
