Oh, and yes we might be better suited with a lake house, and yes we looked for one, but we couldn't find what we were looking for in a house. We found land, but we just built a house 3 years ago, so I wasn't ready to build again so soon. But we will probably find one someday.
Plus we have some really awsome friends and neighbors there at the campground and there are only 28 spots. And our landlord is a retired Vet and heavy/oversize driver and he watches the place like an eagle and he makes the place GREAT!!

In August we rented a seasonal for the first time and paid thru 2015.
We are still in the "is this for us" stages , pro's and con's.

Pro-Our site has easy out for road trips, that was a must have!
Pro-On Sunday its just dump-n-go and take the garbage to the dumpster.
Pro-Way more convenient , just hop in the truck and go.
Pro- Most all the folks at the cg are friendly, lets face it campers really are the best of people!
Pro- new friends
Pro-nice large site and no reservation needed.

Con- Neighbor to the one side. Nice folks, not clean , dirty cluttered site and loud. This is almost a deal breaker at this time. We have a list of sites we like to move to and we are on the list.
Con- I miss towing the camper on road trips.
Con- Not able to tinker with the camper during the week at home. I was always doing something to it, tweaking this or fixing that.
Con- Having a cold one and watching other campers back into their site (or try)and set up. Sometimes that could be quite amusing.
Stay tuned for next seasons updates

Heck we never even back strap the boat. We are allowed one boat, two vehicles and our camper.
It's $130 a month, and that included water, trash and sewer and they keep it mowed, sometimes we have to weedeat alittle. And we have our own electric meter.
We dont have to pay rent year round, but we will loose our spot, and there is a waiting list.

We love it in that we dont have to haul, try to find a site, we get more days or nights in, we have our own little community there, our landlord is awsome, our kids love the lake etc.... plus if im at home im working, if im at the lake, im not, unless it's on our camper or our deck or one of our friends or landlords little project.

Heres a few pics of what not to love !!!
Looks great for only $130 a month!

OK not the one I was thinking of, thought it was Spring Gulch. Never been to LIW not sure I could get my rig around in there, we always go to Oak Creek around the corner, should have thought LIW right away when you mentioned the drag strip. Have fun and enjoy if you go that route.

I was going to say.....what LIW were you talking about???? We were @ SG once & won't return....been to Oak Creek & Sun Valley neither very impressing...You really need to check out LIW....by far the nicest we've been to. I get our 38' 5er in & out with no problem....99% of the roads are asphalt.

we have had a seasonal site in Chincoteague,Va. now for 9 years,and haven't even considered changing anything. we consider it our "beach home " living in Baltimore,Md.,it is only a 3.5 hr drive away. we love this island. a great beach,abundant widelife,nature trails on Assateague,and of course,the ponies. and now we have the rocket launches from Wallops Island,which is across the bay from Chincoteague.

This is our rig, it tracks a bit more to the inside due to the location of the hitch, that is my biggest concern
We are right around 65' long

EXGMTech - Do you know what site you'll be getting and any chance you can do a test week or month before committing to avoid something similiar to the above?

Friends of ours had 3 now 4 kids (age 7 and below) and just finished their first year at a new seasonal site which they love. Funny thing happened at the end of this season though, both of their neighbors have pulled up roots. One bought another trailer elsewhere in the park and the other is just selling.

Things that make ya go Hmmmmm.

Our seasonal site has a turn around pretty regularly also - new campers and new neighbors make each year a new experience 😄
