Welcome to the forums!
I love Kentucky party cuz it has many great parks!
Some folks are partial to private CGs like Jellystone or KOA but I'm partial to state
and national park camping.
Where are you headed??
We also often bug out the weekend after Labor Day.
Some folks have no choice and if they want a long weekend they have to go
on a holiday weekend so those weekends tend to be busy. Typically the
weekend before and after a holiday tend to be less crowded than a normal
weekend and lots less crowded than the holiday itself.
Anyway have fun!! One tip. Take a little pocket notebook and write notes.
You'll "get out there" and realize you forgot this or that or just didn't think you'd
want something and now you do. Write it down.
We have a pack list that is a word doc that sits on our desktop of our PC.
Each trip, even if it's just a 2 day, we print the list and check off stuff as it
We constantly edit or tweak this list and we use it every time
I also have one of those accordion file folders that I keep in my truck.
I put campground maps and park brochures in there as we travel.
IF we return to a park or CG I can look in there and find notes about which
were our favorite sites and some we might want to avoid.
