I agree we need a Seasonal Camping Thread! Sometimes when I am searching the threads to solve a problem, it does not apply to me because my camper is stationary 8 months out of the year. We have a seasonal spot at Pomme De Terre Lake in Central Missouri. I have had my spot for about 7 years now. We would not trade it for anything! We use the camper more as a lake house. Get there, unload, turn the AC on and crack open a cold beverage! Last year we upgraded to a Salem Park Model and we love it after our other travel trailer got stolen over the winter in a storage lot. Here are some pictures of my spot:

That is gorgeous powerboat fan! I love your pines for shade too!
Just curious why you only keep it there part of the year. Does your CG require you to remove it at the end of every season?

Thanks...The Corp of Engineers requires that we remove them from Dec. 1 to March 1 every year. I do not own the lot, I have the rights to the lease every year for the spot.

Are they popular elsewhere?

There's somebody that has one where we have our seasonal site. Not sure if it's the same one, but looks like it. When they built their deck they put plastic screen between the joists and decking so the bugs wouldn't get through the deck boards. They do remove the roof and sides during the winter.

Thanks Wiscampsin! If we put ours on a wood deck, will be sure and do that!
Makes sense.

Exactly two weeks from today till we're scheduled to go to our seasonal for the summer! Gawd, it seems like forever!
I'm off for the next week to study for final coming up.
I can study there though. Couldn't I? We should go, shouldn't we? I wouldn't be distracted, anymore than I am here on FRF.

Putting it on site this weekend! Could have put it there on the first of April, but had too many things to do, so the time is now! Will be there for the entire week, turkey hunting in the mornings, and piddling around with the camper in the afternoons, and hopefully weather permitting, sitting around the fire in the evening enjoying nature.
