Spent New Year weekend at Dillon Beach, a little cold at night but beautiful days, rained during the night on my last night. Looking forward to a few days at Moss Landing KOA ( between Monterey and Santa Cruz) in a couple of weeks. Weather in N. Calif. really lets me go year round. With my new Forester, even staying inside for some rain is a joy.
Can't retire yet but able to pretend for short bursts.

How in the world was I supposed to know that?!? There was nothing on their site saying their water wasn't on and they are advertised as a year round CG. .
Sorry to hear Carolina. We like this cg for our icebreaker (would go this year but DW is planning a trip to Old England from New England for the DD's Spring Break). KOA's have a pretty good standard. The sites in the field which I'm sure they pointed you too will fit big rigs. They do suck since they pack you in like sardines. They are very flat and even have hookups for grey water (so you can book just a w/e site). When the weather gets nicer they have some pretty good activities and entertainment. We will probably book our icebreaker for Kamp Kare weekend (Mom's day).

Grey water hookup
Near to Mystic

Sites are narrow. Have to retract the awning in most sites to light a fire.

I have a site booked at Destin West RV Resort for 4/29 to 5/2. This will be the maiden voyage of the Wildwood for us.
However, I do have it set up in the back yard with 50 amp power and water now. It's going to be a guest house for family at Easter.

Ice Breaker '16

Just got our '16 ice breaker in at the beautiful Evergreen RV Park in Mt Eaton, OH, in the middle of Ohio's Amish country....great food, weather, fellowship & helped two rookie families, both out on their very first ever camp in brand new rigs...what a good time...

Most campgrounds in Maine open on May 15, with some opening May 1. A few remain open year-round, however water is not available at the sites for those.

Yesterday saw up to 4 inches of snow in southern Maine with none in my area...pretty unusual. The rest of the week is sunny with seasonal daytime temps but pretty cool nights, dropping below freezing.

After this mild winter and having just brought the TT out of storage, I am beyond ready to get a weekend of camping in. First scheduled trip is Memorial Day weekend, but I don't see myself waiting that long. It's time to go camping!
