Where do you stay at on this route? Was looking at Kentucky Dam Village Campground as one option. Anyone ever stay there?

Well, got our reservations taken care of on the way down. Planning on driving at max around 8 hours/day. Appreciate the input here and we are staying at the Clarksville RV Park and Camping - Good Sam Park. I believe this is the same park that ZanMan4U mentioned. Looks nice and should be good for an overnight stay. That will get us into the mountains during the daytime and make the drive a little easier.

From there we are stopping at Twin Oaks RV Park - Perry, Georgia which also got great Good Sam reviews. I actually found that Good Sam's has more reviews than I could find elsewhere on the web and a lot of useful comments. And last but not least to get from there to Disney......

One of these days we are going to have to tell the kids we are going

Now to plan the route back.....and get the toll system squared away if necessary. Probably going to try and make it back in 2 days and make a 2 night stay at Raccoon Mountain

Gotta give a positive review to both of these RV Parks. Great people at both. You do get a bit of interstate noise at the Clarksville campground, but the AC drowned that out pretty quickly.

I would highly recommend the Twins Oaks RV Park. Nice place and the kids had a blast in the pool. Both were very clean and had great people running them.

Back in Nov. 2011 we did that same trip. I took 65-75 all the way. our first stop was Atlanta and Stone Mountain (yes, I drove almost 14 hours straight!). very nice place with a very nice campground. On the way home we stayed at the KOA in Trenton GA (Chatanooga West KOA, Lookout MTN). another very nice campground. If I had the extra drive time, I would definitely recommend Mammoth Cave as a stop and the Jelly stone in the Smoky MTNS (Cosby TN).

Alright, so we made it back. In addition to the campground that I mentioned above, I would highly recommend the campground at Raccoon Mountain. We only made an overnight stay, but plan on going back some time when we can stay there for at least 2-3 nights. Very scenic views and looks like a lot to do.

At just over 2600 miles in that was the longest trip we've taken, but well worth it. The rig towed the fifth wheel beautifully the entire way (including through the pass a Monteagle.)
