Carolinas

We asked the kids where next summers trip should be and they came up with the Carolina's. Never been there. We have pulled the rockwood 8316 out west and to Maine and many spots in between. We love to hike and be outdoors when we go places. Coming from michigan and having usually 10-15 days for our trips where should we aim the trailer if the "Carolina's" are the destination. We stay usually at state or national parks. Thanks and merry Christmas

Asheville, NC on your trip either north or south, to visit the Biltmore estate. And Charleston for the beauty and the history of the city, but it will be crowded. Enjoy!

Depends on the age of kids? NC near ashville is a great place. White water rafting, tubing down rivers, trails just to name a few.
If you go to front listing of FROG and look under campground reviews you will find a listing of parks with good info. NC mts are great for kids.

outerbanks is great, if you like the beach. the further north the less "commercialized" it is, but i dont know what they have for campgrounds. if you have a four wheel drive you can drive on the beach at the north end, around kitty hawk there are more of the typical beach type stores and activities. just a little further south and inland is alligator state park...not sure if they have any facilities but i would love canoeing there one time.

if you are looking for more rugged activities the great smokey mountains are there. i stayed in a cabin by bryson city and its beautiful there. hiking, white water rafting there.....jet boating on a nearby lake. and while there we stumbled into gaitlinburg tn. actually looking to go there and camp soon. on the edge of the park, yet very touristy...tons of wax museums, ripleys museums, etc

no problem anywhere that I know of that wouldn't fit a 30 footer. some spots are harder to get in but just take your time mine is 32 and I never had a problem yet.
