Oak Hollow Family Campground: Site C-8

I think I have found the perfect campsite in the perfect campground in all the United States. Granted, I haven’t been to all the United States yet, but this one knocked our sock off.  Everything we look for in a campground is provided at Oak Hollow Family Campground in Highpoint, North Carolina.  Electric (50/30 amp), water, sewer, cable, and free wi-fi, oh my! On top of all that, the campground is located on a lake with amazing sunrise and sunset views.  And for $30 per night, it’s a steal.

Cedar Creek Corps of Engineers Park.
Cedar Creek COE campground is located near Nashville, Tennessee. As is typical with COE campgrounds, Cedar Creek is exceptionally well manicured in a beautiful area of Mt. Juliet. There are 59 sites spanning a peninsula overlooking Lake Hickory. We reserved one of six waterfront sites for the weekend (due to someone’s last-minute cancellation) and spent an extra five days in one of the inner loop sites. Although the loop sites are fine, the waterfront sites are nothing short of spectacular. Read the rest of this entry

Camping at Bahia Honda State Park can be a mixed bag. I say this even though I believe our campsite on our last visit is probably the best campsite in all our travels. Emphasis on campsite. The views from campsite #14 at the Buttonwood Campground at Bahia State Park in Big Pine Key, Florida has amazing views of both bridges, the ocean, an inlet brimming with fish and a glimpse into the camper’s marina. It’s truly spectacular at sunset. So, how did we get this site in the middle of winter when anyone who has ever tried to reserve a site at Bahia Honda knows it’s always fully booked through the winter? Like all the other Florida State Parks I reserve, I get them through last minute cancellations, usually a week before. This drives my husband batty Read the rest of this entry

Easily one of my favorite campgrounds is Long Key State Park in Layton, Florida.  Every site has an ocean view and at around $42 per night it’s one of the more affordable options when camping in the Florida Keys. As one of four Florida State Parks in the Keys region, each one is just as hard to get a reservation as the next, especially  Read the rest of this entry
