Columbus Belmont State Park in Kentucky is situated high on the bluffs overlooking the Mississippi River. The park preserves Civil War earthworks and tells a unique story of the war. Plus, the campground is a relaxing destination, making Columbus Belmont a great mix of outdoors, history, and relaxation.
Ferne Clyffe is 30 minutes from home. On this late September weekend, the kids slept outside in the tent. See our weekend in pictures below, or check out our prior visits to Ferne Clyffe.
The Rock Pond at Belle Ridge Retreat is the most unique campground amenity we've seen recently, and maybe the most popular amongst our family.
The Kentucky Lakes/Prizer Point KOA is typically packed on an August weekend, but during our visit, we virtually had the place to ourselves.
Three weeks ago: Yellowstone National Park. Two weeks ago: Grand Teton National PArk. Last week: Scotts Bluff National Monument. This week: Mammoth Cave National. Heck of a camping streak.
After exploring Yellowstone and Grand Teton national parks, we decided to take a few days going across Nebraska to see some of the sights. Our visit would include three campgrounds and two regions of the state.
Due to our late change in plans and decision to spend four nights in Grand Teton less than a month before our trip, we had to stay further from Grand Teton than we’d hoped. But, our one hour commute each of the four days became a highlight with a grizzly bear sighting and a moose sighting, and it let us see a bit of a new state: Idaho.
Yellowstone. The first National Park in the world. Home to Old Faithful. It’s big and it’s far away. That was about all we knew about this classic road trip destination when we made reservations at the Yellowstone West Gate KOA. We were blown away by all things Yellowstone.
Deciding to proceed with an epic road trip during summer 2020 is complex. Our plans to visit Glacier during this trip had to be scrapped last minute as we would only be able to see West Glacier. We were left to secure a last minute Plan B, a fantastic Plan B, of Grand Tetons. But first we had to get there.
