Just a quick review and some pic's
Blountville, TN Bristol/Kingsport KOA
36.00 per night with KOA card
pull thru - 50/30amp full hookups
"Premium pull thru" - had a wooden deck, picnic table, fire pit, free standing grill, exterior deck light, handmade outdoor furniture
the park itself was very clean, kind of located in a small valley so the sites were kind of staggered on level area's and on the sides of small hills, all with plenty of room to navigate to and from.
The store was very clean and nice, with a small grill inside, you could order from the grill and they would deliver the food to your site, we didnt use it but it was a nice option. when we arrived they were very nice and we had an escort to the site, the gentleman made sure i didnt need any help or questions before he left, him and few other staff members were around on the golf cart quite a bit cleaning and checking on things, no trash or debris anywhere i could see
Seemed to be a mix of permanent residents, contractors and vacationers there, the park was very quiet although one night a firetruck and ambulance showed up at one of the campers on the backside
The weather was nice during the day but got down to 19 degrees saturday night, they had heat tape on the outdoor connection and i left a small drip going overnight, no problems with the water, turned the tank heaters on and a mix of electrical heat from the eden pure house heater and using the propane heat sparingly kept it nice and cozy, my wife was cold a few times but shes cold at home too
We planned this short trip (Sat-Mon) just so I could show my wife the area, I have traveled there alot with my job and wanted to show her the area and some of the history.
I'm not a big holiday person but we went to see the Bristol Motor Speedway "Speedway in Lights"
which is great for kids and those who love Christmas lights, you even get to drive around on the actual track itself which was neat for me, my wife thought we were going to roll over because the banking is so steep there!
We also visited Historic Jonesborough, TN
which is the oldest town in TN, alot of history there and great historic downtown area to visit and shop. We also traveled to Elizabethton. TN to see a historic covered bridge. We capped the trip off with dinner at Cootie Browns
in Johnson City, TN Sunday night, great "eclectic" kind of place to eat if your ever in the area. Monday morning we broke camp and headed back home and winterized the trailer for the season.
