New to RV Camping

Hi Everyone,

I thought I'd introduce myself and my family. We just purchased a 2011 Rockwood Ultralite 2901SS and this is our first travel trailer. We have been tent camping for years and finally decided to give a travel trailer a try. We have 3 kids so the bunk room in the back of the 2901 should work out great for us.

We live in North Carolina so if anyone is out this way and has any recommendations for where to camp in the state we'd love to find some new places.

We're looking forward to this new adventure and hopefully I won't have to post too many stupid newbie questions here.

Ken

I am new to camping as well and live in NC. We have found a couple good places.

McDowell Nature Preserve
New River Campground
Grandfather Campground

By far our favorite is the Grandfather campground. If you go ask for a site up on the hill. We live close to Charlotte and have a young kid so we go to the McDowell Nature Preserve a lot. It's near Carowinds and they have great hiking trails and very clean modern bathrooms.

Hope this helps some. Next year we hope to find more. We just put the trailer away for the winter.

Hello everyone,

Ken...welcome. My family too is new to RV'ing...this July we got our Georgetown 350. We have 3 kids too and the bunkbeds are great...now if I could just get my eldest daughter(5) to stop climbing in bed with us...oh well the joys of little ones.

We needed an RV as I sail Hobie 17 Catamaran in division 11 up in New Jersey area and need to pull the boat on local regatta circuit.

Anyway...look forward to learning from the forum and hopefully contributing with some future wisdom.

We are heading to FL for a trip in early January. Wondering if anyone would have a suggestion for a nice place to stop for an overnight that is near interstate 95 somewhere below Richmond VA?

Thanks

Bfrey
