Tom Johnson off I-85 just north of Charlotte, by Concord, NC. Wait, think I read something about Johnson sold out to CW. Either way about 2 miles off the interstate. Big shopping mall on west side of I-85. Plenty of restaurants. If your into NASCAR, many race shops in same area. Along with Nascar Hall of Fame in downtown area. As I remember not to many RV parks by Charlotte. But think Tom Johnson would be good choice, maybe google them. Safe travels..

Gruen, pronounced Green is a neat little place. Some of the movie "Michael" with John Travolta was filmed there i think. The dance scene with the ladies all-around him.

As we continue our venture to NC for Thanksgiving, our next decision/direction as we gallivant northeast word along the Golf of Mexico is to go through Houston or Galveston, TX. Other than Glen Campbell's song about Galveston and or stopping at PPL RV Consignment in Houston, is there anything of interest in either city or should we continue on through?

Thanks

Not sure how you're planning to go after leaving Texas. We drove I-10/I-12 eastbound through Louisiana about 8 months ago and it was in really bad condition from about Lafayette to the Mississippi line. Holes and damage like you rarely see on an interstate.

When you're ready to leave Galveston you can easily take your RV on the free Bolivar ferry and then continue toward Port Arthur on 87/124 to I-10. The ferry is easy to do and is a short pleasant ride. We've done it often.

We are not planning at all. Whatever feel good in the morning is our direction.

We are boon-docking in the Galveston Municipal parking lot tonight and pointed at the Bolivar Ferry for a morning trip across and then to Ghost Island.

We were thinking of heading to Winnie and Beaumont. What's worth seeing/doing in Port Arthur?

Saw the "Parade of Lights" at the waterfront in Galveston then headed across the fair to Ghost Island and north through Winnie. We stopped to take showers in Port Arthur then continued east to Hammond for the night in a RV bivouacked area.

We quickly crossed MS and LA finally arriving in Pensacola, FL. Attempting to get a nice beach front camp site on the peninsula, we were informed that the "peninsula based RV parks were shutting down due to the incoming storm!!!" Oh well. First storm so far in our 2.5 week endeavor.

Oh well, tomorrow is another day.

Any suggestions for a nice but inexpensive RV park in the Jacksonville, FL area for this week?

1. Clean
2. Pool
3. Paved sites
4. Convenient to attractions and RV motor home dealers

Thanks

It will be raining today and tomorrow in NE Florida.

Here is a place off I10 that is a nice campground but no pool Lots of folks swim in the lake. It is a popular campground. I am prejudice as I live on the lake. Very few homes here.
Osceola National Forest Campgrounds

Again, no pool but this area is so nice, I would choose this one. It is on the ocean, The little hamlet of Fernandina is wonderful. The fort is historic.

I don't know of any rv dealers nearby. There is one in Whitehouse (west of Jacksonville) that is good. Campers Inn RV of Jacksonville | FL RV Dealer | Florida RV Sales | RV Parts | RV Service

Dick Gores is just south of Fernandina on I95
Jacksonville

Here is my suggestion, If you are heading towards jacksonville now, stop at Ocean Pond for a night or maybe two, then go on to Fernandina. I think you will be glad you did.

If you have any questions about any of those places, call me. I am pm ing my number.

As far as Savannah, this seems like a nice campground. Maybe a little high for what is offered but the reviews are great. I have friends who are spending christmas there. If you have never been to Savannah, you will love it. This place is pretty close to the historic district which is important
