The picture at the bar is bold rock, the picture in front of the mountains is in front of blue mountain.

Try to get a site at the bottom as going up the mountain is very steep and twisty. That said, it is clean and the people are nice. Great activities for the kids. We loved staying there.

Sounds like you have come and do come my way. Please let me know when you are this way would love to meet someone from FRF.

We haven't had any issues with power here. We camp here 6 to 7 weekends out of the season. Every year Hate to hear that others have had problems I do hope they said something to Mike. He is a good guy and is usually willing to make things right

Just a suggestion but Fredricksburg, TX has numerous RV places plus many wineries. Also is the home of the Admiral Nimitz Museum and has live reenactments several times a year. Then just SW is Luckenbach TX.

Please note there is another all electric back in only loop that is first come first serve as well

Additionally some people stay at Giant City campground near Carbondale as well
I can second this! We've been going to the Shawnee Wine Trail for years, this past year took the RV down the weekend after Thanksgiving. We stayed at Giant City Campground.

Not a winery, but the Vintage Illinois wine festival in September held at Matthiessen State Park, near Utica, IL, is a ton of fun. We camp nearby and spend the day at the festival sampling all of the region's offerings, listening to live music and visiting with friends. The Largest Wine Festival in Illinois - Vintage Illinois 2014 We did speak to some of the wineries about spending the weekend at their place, many had never thought of the idea but openly welcomed us to come by for the weekend. We've not done it yet though.

I see you're in Rockford! Yes, it's a great time! Our first visit was probably 8 or 9 years ago when the festival was new, no food, small crowd. Now they have food trucks from the Chicago area and it's very full!! Not too crowded that it's not enjoyable, but full. We bring a instant-up tent, chairs, cooler of food and settle in for the day.

A little tip...reservations for that weekend at Starved Rock campground (about 2 miles away) are available in a couple of weeks. There are private campgrounds in Utica, about 10 miles away. Cozy Corner Campground is about 100 yards away, full hookups but no 50-amp if you need it. It's basically someone's front yard, but the nicest people you may ever meet! We stayed there last year last minute.

Oh, pre-order your festival tickets and get there when it opens for a decent parking spot and place to sit.

They came down and worked on the power poles. We stayed there for a crossroads rally 2 years in a row. We were always in the full hook up vendor sites near the dog park. If you were there in October either of the past 2 years and saw a bunch of crossroads cruisers and maybe a zinger or two(and a sabre last october) that would have been our group. I am not sure I will be up that way this year but I will let you know if I do make it up. Conversely, if you are in the chapel hill/durham/burlington/greensboro area let us know. There is a decent campground near us in Mebane that is is central to visiting these areas. Ok done hijacking. please return to your regularly scheduled thread.

The City of Hermann, Missouri has a great campground in town. There are several wineries within an easy drive both in the area, and the region.
