I'm not sure why anyone in the southern states would stop camping in the winter, unless you just hate the cold.

We are similar yet opppsite... LOL.
We do not normally camp during July & August, the other 10 months we are goin!

I agree with you 150%!
Some of our best trips have been in the winter, one of my favorite memories was having to clear snow out of the fire ring..

The only issue we had with camping in sub zero temps was how fast the furnace sucked the propane tanks dry. Loved the experience though. Christmas in the mountains is awesome.

Aw you'll do fine. Travelled up and down 421 many times while grandaughter was at App State. Stayed at the KOA a bunch and also liked Flintlock on 105. Hope to be up there Oct. 11 for homecoming. My first mountain driving experience was picking up new school buses in Asheville. Brought that thing down black mountain scared to death after seeing signs about runaway trucks and falling rocks :-)

Last year our last trip was just after the Canadian thanksgiving, but then I didn't winterize until about mid-November. This year the last trip will be the last weekend in September. Not because of the cold, but because come fall other activities start to get in the way. I'll winterize it sometime after that but before the first big freeze.

If it were up to me, I'd be camping year round. Grew up in a scouting family so the majority of my youth was done as fall/winter camping.

We are staying at Palace campgrounds. We have stayed there numerous times as it's the most convenient and only campground in Galena. We love galena and all the golf and great food in the area.
