For the fourth year in a row we have camped for the Thanksgiving holiday. This year, we had the treat of camping in Asheville, NC near the Blue Ridge Parkway.
New Harmony, Indiana is a historic town with a unique history. Nearby Harmonie State Park offers a great state park filled with trails and a large campground. And, during a rainy day, Evansville offers options to escape the rain. Read on to learn more about our weekend.
We spent two weekends in August exploring Missouri’s river country. The first we spent at Big Spring, where we spent the weekend exploring springs and mills, earning junior ranger badges, and playing in the Current River. The second weekend we stayed at Echo Bluff, where we spent the entire weekend in the State Park, biking, floating, and playing at the great playground.
We've debated staying at the Casino Queen RV Park many times, and we've always decided against this campground. The Casino Queen is in East St Louis. East St Louis frequently tops most dangerous city lists. But, it is also just across the river from downtown St Louis. We had the cleaver idea of staying at Casino Queen, getting a great campground view of the fireworks, and spend the weekend in St Louis, How did this adventure play out?
