Yes we are rather fortunate in our location as there are many great places to camp/visit. We are starting slow, though. Our first trip will be to Harrison Bay with some other experienced campers. My wife and 6 year old son are chomping at the bit right now. LOL

We drove down to Harrison Bay a while back to check it out, looked like a nice place. We actually haven't stayed anywhere in that area since we have so much to chose from around here. It's easier for us as weekenders to hop over to Pigeon Forge, Townsend, or one of the state parks for a quick weekend.

Welcome from another Newb! We have a Cardinal Platinum 5er, but my son and daughter-in-law just bought a 2013 Surveyor Sport 240, and they really like it. They will be traveling to MI to camp with us and our daughter and her family in a couple of weeks so we will get the tour of the new rig then.

We have been to TN quite a few times and usually camp in the Gatlinburg area. A beautiful part of the country.

I look forward to learning a lot on here and hopefully sharing in some fun times on the road.

Welcome to the forum. Enjoy your new camper!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
