I have done it for the last 3 years in order to spend thanksgiving with my son in collage. and no the families are not like the 4th. They are spending family time not dunk time. Normally quiet around the site.

This year will make the 3rd year to spend with family in our 5er at Maumelle Park (one of the nicest Corp parks in America) and the kids and grand kids love it. Hope to continue this tradition for many years to come. Great time!

We are travelling to San Antonio, Texas and camping at the KOA park. We were there over Thanksgiving a few years ago at Admiralty. It was a nice holiday. We have reservations for dinner on the river and to watch the river parade while we are there.

We boondocked in the California desert with a 5 neighborhood friends and family for about 25 years. Could have as many as 40 people (kids, grand-kids and other friends). Had the best Thanksgiving dinners ever. We're the youngest couple in the group, now sadly most of those friends have left us or are not physically able to travel. So we've been staying home. Would love to find a new group.

For the past 4 years we have traveled to Lakeland Florida from NC at Thanksgiving. My hubby deep fries the Turkey and I make stuffing, collards, turnips, pies, mashed potatoes, giblet gravy, home made biscuits, green bean casserole, sweet potatoes with onion and rosemary dish, and iced tea. All this for twelve (12) people to sit down in the camper. It was a tradition we started for Mother n Law when she moved from western NY to Florida. She passed 2 years ago but the tradition stands. We place a picture of her on the mantle and light a candle. Family time is great and oh the beautiful memories we share.

Stephen Foster State Park in Georgia. It's near the Florida state line. I was there in 2012 at Thanksgiving. I was wearing shorts. People who camped there seemed to enjoy it.... You could take a swamp ride and see all kinds of "gators...."
JJ only, my cat went to Rainbow Bridge July 2015

I love my Sunseeker, when I'm on a trip I don't wanna go home!!!"

Total days camping each year: AS MUCH AS POSSIBLE!

Ever camped over Thanksgiving? Would you do it again?

Or does all that family togetherness with everyone else's family sort of take the fun out of it?
Two years ago we camped over Thanksgiving just outside of San Antonio. We brought a small turkey breast and the complete 'fixings' for the two of us and enjoyed it! Although the campground was nearly full, it was quiet and many were there to go to their friends/relatives' homes for the holiday.

This year we have reservations near Fort Myers, FL, for two weeks around T-Day, so will see if it's comparable.

We've been camping for Thanksgiving for the last 12-15 years +, most of my family has campers and camps so it has always made sense. My grandparents, aunt\uncle\cousin, parents, and now myself\wife all go to a local state park,(James "Sloppy" Floyd state park in NW GA) from Monday-Tuesday till Sunday. We get to spend quality time as a family and usually do a less than traditional meal for Thanksgiving.
