A few years ago before we upgraded to our Apex, we were camping at Lakeport State Park in a pop-up when a severe thunderstorm blew in.
Park rangers patrolled with a bullhorn announcing the tornado warning. After storing the canopy and other small items, the winds picked up and started blowing the trees around. Many of which were compromised by the emerald ash borer. Entire trees started falling down just 30 feet from our site.

We hurried to the bathrooms and stood by watching the branches rain down on our site.

A small tornado was spotted just a mile away from the campground

What do you think about this one?

Thanks for the stories....I had family members go through a tornado that hit the St. Louis airport in 2011. It was a very scary and I have a new outlook on spring weather. As much as I love my RV...its the last place I want to be in a bad storm especially with my kids. Here are some pics. Looks like we will be modifying our camping plans this weekend!
