  1. It felt good to sleep in and relax this morning. We made a big breakfast, did a couple loads of laundry and, enjoyed sitting outside. We had several campers around us but, we hardly saw them. We got ready and went to play mini golf at Fantasia Gardens. We had no wait. There was a group in front of us that we did catch up with but, we had the time we didn't mind. I will give you a hint who one it wasn't my husband. Once we got done, we sat done and talked about what to do next. We decided to go back to the Wilderness and do a open house DVC tour. We wanted to see what the cabins loo
  2. Today we are up and excited for AK. We have a quick breakfast and are at the park a little before 8. We are in pretty quick not really any line. This is my husband's favorite park, and he just had a birthday on the way here. To celebrate I booked us the Wild Trek. Check in is at noon so, we have plenty of time. We decide well, I decide that we will save Avatar for last. We walked right on Everest front row. This seemed to be a thing this trip we got front row on most things. Did Dino also a walk on. Went back and watched Kite Tails. This was a nice time to just sit and relax for a bit. Next wa
  3. We just returned from a 7-night stay. Our son is now adulting, so it is now just us. This was the first time in full hook up. We did online check in and got a text at 10:30 that site 1829 was all set for us. We pulled in about an hour later so good timing. Today was Labor Day and it looked like a parade of campers with everyone leaving. The first thing we noticed was all the standing water everywhere. We have never been in September before so not sure if this is normal. Second thing was how quiet it was. We got all set up and took a bike ride to get an activity sheet and birthday button for m
  4. Today we are going to ride are bikes. On one of the flyers, we picked up I saw something about a river bike trail. After breakfast we loaded up the bikes and stopped in the office to see if anyone knew more about this. Well, the office lady was not very helpful she made me feel like I was bothering her. She did tell us that she thought it started at the library. I didn't bother asking where that was, I didn't want to inconvenience her more. We just looked it up on are phones and saw that it wasn't far at all. Once we got there, we unloaded and looked around for it. We saw a mother and son on b
  5. Yes, some things bugged us but, for the most park we enjoyed it. We would love to go back at Christmas and see the lights.
  6. Today we are up and have a quick breakfast. We are going to Dollywood for the first time. We wanted to get there right at park opening. We head to the trolly depot it has free parking which is nice. There is a small line we buy are tickets and get in another line for the trolly. We waited about 15 min for it to come. We make it into the park with no problem. The security line was moving pretty fast. We got a map that was being handed out. Once inside we got caught up in the crowd which appeared to be some school groups heading to the right. After a few min we stepped to the side and let them p
  7. Today was Sunday. We found a church 5 min away and went after breakfast. Went back to the camper changed grabbed a few snacks and snacks and we are off. We are going hiking today in the Smokey Mountains. We drove to the visitor center traffic was not bad today. They have a really nice center there. With staff to answer questions about the park and city. We found what trail we wanted to hike and left. It was very beautiful driving around. We stopped once and took some photos of the view. It was a little tight driving are big van around and trying to find parking was not fun. We got a
  8. Today we say goodbye and hello. We noticed that the campground really filled up most of the spots had been taken. Still was very quiet except for a few barking dogs. We had a nice breakfast outside soaking in the sun. You know those last moments before having to pack up and leave. Dishes and clean up done time to go. We are headed to Pigeon Forge/Gatlinburg. We have four nights reserved at Creekside. It took us about 4 and half hours to drive over. The drive went well a few winding roads but, we made it. We checked in was given some info and, maps on the area. Our site was right behi
  9. Yes, we liked the tour it was fun! I will look into Ruby Falls thanks for the tip.
  10. Today we are heading into Bowling Green. This is our real reason for coming down. There is a Buick national car show and races at Beechbend Raceway. Dinner again was in the slowcooker so I got that started and we are off. We spent the whole day at the show. We caught up with old friends and meet some new ones. It was a nice warm sunny day. It felt good to be outside! Once we got back we had dinner and a repeat of last night. Bike ride down for ice cream, movie and, bed.
  11. Today we are going to explore Mammoth Cave. I pre purchased our tour tickets before we left home. We just did the short tour Frozen Niagara it was about a hour long. This was a nice tour I would recommend it! After the tour we did some hiking around the park. It was a beautiful day out. We then went back to the campground had a snack and checked on dinner. Before we left I started dinner in the slow cooker. I also called Disney and ordered are Halloween Party tickets. My husband loaded up are bikes. We decided to bike around Mammoth park. We biked for about a hour then we started to get h
  12. This trip was just the two of us. I think that the time has come that most of are trips now will be this way. We left off bright and early. Wanted to get thru Chicago before it got bad. Had the camper loaded the night before. It has been a cold and rainy spring here. We live in southern Wisconsin. Looking forward to some warm sunny days. Of course, now that we are leaving it's hot and sunny. Driving thru Chicago always stresses me out. People are crazy drivers. It wasn't too bad. We made it to Cave City Ky, with no problems. We arrived at Cave City Rv park and set up was ea
  13. I know this is a old post but, we just stayed at cave country. It now has a pool and in the office they have a pool table. We loved it here sites are level pull thru. Restrooms super clean restrooms. We did a a drive thru of singing hills I did not see any swings we thought the place needed some work. If you need a place for the night it would do. For longer stays go to cave country.
  14. Just back and we loved Creekside! I would recommend it.
  15. We have never been to the Halloween party. We did Christmas and had a great time. Looking to go at going on Labor day. Does anybody know if this night will be more busy because of the holiday? I know in the past they gave out snacks and drinks. I only saw candy listed are they stopping this and giving a tote bag in it's place?
  16. I was looking at the Disney experience site for things to do on our next trip. I came across this activity. For 25.00 at Coronado Springs you can make a mosaic in the shape of Mickey. It looks like fun and considering doing this. As anyone done this or seen these?
  17. We have tent camped at Disney before and had no problems. Congrats on the discount!
  18. I just saw a discount for Disney visa card members. August 28th thru September 19th. It says it does include campsites. I just called and only available for tent pop up or premium meadows. Hope this helps someone. We have reservations in full hook up so no help to us.
  19. I'm so glad to hear that people like full hook up sites. We have always been in tent pop up sites. With are new to us travel trailer we are booked in full hook up in September.
  20. Reservations made for Creekside. The guy on the phone was super friendly! Always a good sign.
  21. Thanks for the response. It looks like Pigeon Forge campground is over a 100.00 more. It does look really nice though. We are looking for nice and clean it will just be the two of us as are son has somehow become become a grown up?
  22. Has anyone stayed at Creekside Rv Park? Thinking about staying here it looks nice but first hand knowledge is always the best.

We are going to explore the Fort of Necessity. It's a battlefield in Farmington. We did not know wha
