Mammoth cave NP in south central KY.
They have at least a few miles of paved paths and low traffic roads so
biking is nice. Many folks don't realize they also have 1000s of acres
of back country if hiking is your thing.
If you go and it's hot take a cave tour. IF it's not, take a hike!
And it's an easy 100 mile from our home straight down I65.

FYI- the CG is primitive. No hookups but they have heated and AC cooled
toilets in each loop! Makes no sense to me. They just remodeled them
with new AC/heatpump units. But they don't even have electric hookups
in the CG. Still a decent CG and we can easily go 3 days on battery
power. Pay showers at the camp store are decent also.

Actually they do have 2 or 3 sites with electric or full hookups.
I guess those are reserve-able. This time of year the rest are
first come, first served.

This coming weekend!! We have a 7 day trip planned leaving on Friday. Will be dry camping one night at Wheatland Missouri to watch the ASCS Sprint cars on Friday night then on Saturday heading a little further south to Bennett Springs State Park here in Missouri to do some trout fishing for 6 days. This is our annual fall trip to the park and am getting very excited. We leave the kiddo's at home with the inlaws and enjoy a nice, relaxed time doing things at our own pace.

The next 3 days are going to go by so slow!!!!

We have reserved the campsites but have flexibility at either end of the trip.

We are open to suggestions for other stops from and to our way to Northern Mississippi.
We've been to three of your planned stops: Savannah/St Augustine/Destin campgrounds, all are nice in their unique way.

While in Destin, I'd recommend driving through Topsail SP, it's about a 20min drive east of where you'll be...very nice campground and away from tourist area, we'll be there next summer.
Enjoy your trip

today, with daylight and morning rush hour over, we're heading to Lake Somerville, Tx - for a couple of nights - checked it out day before yesterday and was almost empty (hope it isn't filling up for this Holiday[sic] )

saw many Deer while just driving thru on Wednesday and the Lake level is completely normal - will be anxious to see if my fridge is cooling properly.....Bill
