Smile Newbie from Metro St Louis

Today we bought our first travel trailer. After about 6 years in our Coachmen Clipper popup, we are moving up to a 2006 Forest River Wildwood 31QBSS!

We have alot to learn about how to operate everything, so we are looking forward to some good advice here on the forum.

We are also looking for a good location within no more than 2 hours of St Louis for a long term site to put the camper. We'd like to be able to go to one spot without having to move the camper all the time, but still be able to pull it out for occational longer trips. Right now we are leaning towards Hickory Shores Resort in Carlyle, IL. Any other suggestions?

Hi Bob -- we just visited a campground just south of Carthage IL -- Circle G campground. Pool, playground, rec room, beautiful lake, paddle boats, fishing, etc. People were very friendly. I think the cost is around $650 a year. I don't know how that compares to what you've looked at.

Here is my suggestion. Its a new park, and its close to Black River if you like to float. And it says on the website $30 a month for storage and for an extra fee ($20)they will pull it out of storage set it up on a site and turn on the a/c or the heat..... sounds like a deal to me! Big Creek and Black River are rocky clear water spring fed rivers. Beautiful. K-Bridge east and K-Bridge (20 more minutes) west are on the Black River and are Missouri State campgrounds and are nice tree covered campgrounds but they don't offer the storage option. Suttons Bluff is not too far away and it offers camping and ATV riding trails.
