-Disney...always camp @ Fort Wilderness
-Beach...always camp @ Topsail
-Atlanta...always camp @ Stone Mountain

We like to stay at new places and new parks most of the time. If we really enjoyed a particular place previously we will might back a few years later and stay again if we are going to be in the same area.

We have only repeated at one park so far. It's about 45 mi s from the house. The ultimate goal is to camp in the continental 48 states. Have to wait for retirement for that.

Our "kids" are 22 and 23 and when their schedule permits, still enjoy going with us. Nice having the camping to keep the family connected.

We have 2 state parks we consistently go to but always try new ones every year.

One of our favorite parks to take the dogs for a walk. One of the paths take you past here.

We have been camping about 3 years, been to a dozen different campgrounds. The two that we have returned to are for different reason, one it's local and close to work so it's a change of pace place. The other because we enjoy tubing down the James River in Va, this has become a yearly outing.

Check out our blog here for a list of locations

Wiscampsin, I grew up in Hurley, WI (where Hwy 51 ends and the fun begins). I know the Dells well. Always looked forward to making our summer trip there.

We do both, if it's for just a few days we go may be to 3 hours away. If we have more time we go farther away. I have several parks I would like to go to this year. Has anyone do the Natchez Trace with a motor home?

We have some very nice state parks around us here that are less than an hour's drive. We repeat camp at those. Our favorite weekend get away is a park about 35 miles away. Camp site number one is seldom booked, because it's not near the water's edge. That's our favorite spot for just a weekend of quiet and relaxation.

The park we stayed at in Pigeon Forge is definitely a repeater, if and when we go back there.

We'll be going to a "new" park on April 4th...another one very close to us. We scouted it out a few weeks back, noted the site we wanted, came home and booked it.

If age is a state of mind, and I've lost my mind, I'm AGELESS, right?
Give me 40 acres and I'll turn this rig around:

I often stay at the same two places because it works for me. I have my favorite campground close to home less than 10 miles away for a quick get-away and also go to the usual beach campground. I love full hookups so my choices for CA state parks is somewhat limited.

Like with other members if I were traveling I would seek out new places.

Great choice for "Living within my means" and camping for one...
