The two KOA's --one in Granger and one in Middlebury--will be closed. The only campground I know of anywhere near FR is on the north side of Elkhart on County Road 4. Think the name is Elkhart RV Campground. Not a bad place for just a night or two. Next to Total Value--big RV dealer and GREAT dealership. I believe they are open until 11/15. It would be a 20 minute drive to the south side of Elkhart and FR. Hope that helps but if you do have any further questions about the area, please let me know.
Thanks for the info. This is my main issue with this ordeal. I live in Madison, MS which is 12hrs from Elkhart and 9hrs from Gaffney. They said I have to bring it in because they have had problems trying to do the upgrade locally. Gaffney can't do it until December and I don't want to wait that long. I am a little concerned driving north in the fall/winter, but unless I go to Gaffney during Christmas this is my only option.
It is time for an oil change. Maybe I can get them to do that for my trouble of driving 24hrs.
