Hello from East TN

Hello All: Just purchased a Forrest River Wildwood, 2003 used model. I happened across this forum, and hope to learn a lot about this trailer along with tips and tricks. I really look forward to learning from fellow Forest River owners!

Welcome, again from Texas. We had hoped to be in your neck of the woods in two weeks, but just learned Cades Cove campground has been closed. You have a beautiful state.

Sorry to hear about your cancellation. I’ve been out of camping for around 15 years, and was so looking forward to my first trip in this newly acquired camper. Planning to join friends, reservations all made, and Friday I received my notice the campground had been closed for the time frame we reserved. Disappointing, but now, I’m focusing on praying for our country and leaders, and neighbors from all states. I hope to find our country well soon and we’re able to resume enjoying company around a fire. Thanks again!

We have reservations to be in the smokie mountain area near you this Saturday. DW, me and Phydeaugh.

A private campground near Pigeon Forge.

Large sites. No playground or showers or restrooms. Inexpensive private campground. Site has cable and wifi plus electric sewer and water.

Thought we can drive there on a tank of diesel. Half a mile of a small creek to fish. Catch up on rv repairs and cocktails. Play the resonator guitar til the sun goes down. Will fill up at the self serve pump in town.

No need to shop.

No need for tourist stuff.

Worth the risk.

Thank you all

I greatly appreciate the kind welcoming from all of you! I can tell Iím in the right place 😁

For those of you planning a trip to TN, I hope it happens, as we always enjoy good company in TN. If it doesnít happen now, then I hope it does soon. Besides, Iím hoping to get out here and join you as soon as the campgrounds reopen.

Thanks to all

There are several camping "clubs" that serve the area. Not sure exactly where you are, but serving the Knoxville area is the "Volunteer Campers" and the other one is the "Cumberland Campers", which serves Upper E Tn, SW Va and E Ky. These are centered around Facebook groups. Check them out, lots of knowledge and a couple of group campouts each year.
