Places to go ;) in NC and SC

Hallo everyone,
We're newbies at rving...we just purchased a 32' Dutchmen Aspen Trail and cant wait to try it out and go places...we have two boys (13 and 10) and our doggie Bichon "Obi".
We're planning to spend a few weeks in Sand Bridge, at the Outdoor Resort, Va this summer and was wondering if you have any suggestion on other places to go around SC and NC...we love the beach and the boys like different activities.
There are so many places to choose on the coast and they all look great..but I'd like to ear from someone who's actually been there.

Cheers

Here's our Dutchmen:

Howdy and welcome to iRV2! That's a great looking RV you have there! You might familiarize yourself with the Reviews of RV Parks and Campgrounds - RV Park Reviews website to get great campground reviews in the areas of interest.

Hi Cattiva73,
For me, when traveling, I like the mountains.

In North Carolina there is:
Grandfather Mountain
Chimney Rock
Emerald Village
Linville Caverns
Biltmore Estate
to name a few. You'll be on the eastern side of the Smoky Mountains. There is also the Great Smoky Mountain National Park.

As to the coast, in North Carolina there is the Battleship North Carolina in Wilmington.

In South Carolina there is Myrtle Beach and Charleston. The kids might like Patriots Point in Charleston. It has an aircraft carrier, submarine and a few other Navy ships to tour. There is also Fort Sumter. This is where the first shots of the Civil War were fired.

All these places have a WEB site where you can determine if what they have is right for you.

If your kids love the beach, I highly recommend the Outer Banks in N.C. and Myrtle Beach area in S.C. Perhaps a little further into spring, though. Pretty darn cold right now to enjoy the beach.

Welcome to the forum, I agree with all of the suggestions above, especially Tanglewood Park in Clemmons! Might be because we're camp host's there!

Yes, Ocean Lakes Family Campground, Myrtle Beach, SC - Oceanfront Camping in Myrtle Beach is a beach lover's dream. Loads of sites within a few feet of the beach. As for the Outer Banks, I have been there many times but not in an RV, so I can't recommend any campgrounds first-hand. I have stayed at Ocean Lakes and I highly recommend it.

Some of this depends on your age but I am currently parked in Seneca, SC, (Oconee country parks: SOUTH COVE) this is a nice little (less than 100 sites) park, many sites 50 amp, Sites have water and electric only NO wifi. VERY lovely lake.

https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/...-2013%20AM.jpg

Took photo 3 weeks ago from the steps of the motor home.

12.00/night in Nov, Dec, Jan and Feb Currently 45 degrees out. (Price increase to 15.00/night expected soon).

This park is just a short hop from Downtown Seneca,, And about 10 miles from Clemson (home of the football team that BEAT OSU!!!!) and some other attractions..

Come March I spend my week out's at Twin-Lakes COE (Same price for me, likely 2x that for you, Senior pass). And during the summer there are several other parks (More expensive) .

I also spend time in FairPlay at CarolinaLanding (My membership is good there) not much in FairPlay but you are right about MM 3 on I-85 so you are a freeway hop from both GA and Anderson, SC. Also a college town with many attractions.

If you stop in at Carolina Landing any time between now and June ask for me (My user ID is my car's license plate) and if I'm in the park... They may let me know you are there.

There are attractions all over the two states.. Too many to list.. One of these days I need to bet back to Ashville with money. and visit Biltmore.

If you're considering Myrtle Beach then look at Pirateland CG and Lakewood CG as well is Ocean Lakes. All are great campgrounds with beachfront sites (reserve early) or shade if you want. I know Lakewood just put a water slide facility in and also a large lazy river. Pirateland has the Lazy river too and all the same amenities as the others. Also an indoor heated pool, Lakewood too. Been a while since I was at Ocean Lakes so things may have changed. All three are good with Ocean Lakes being the largest by far. It all boils down to personal preferences. Your boys will be entertained whichever you choose. Ron

Not the beach, but would be great fun for the boys (and maybe you, too) . . .

Spencer Railroad Complex, North Carolina (officially known as the North Carolina Transportation Museum)

NC Transportation Museum - Home

Lots to see, nice little train ride, too.

Another great place is James Island County Park just outside of Charleston. It is a beautiful park, with the best dog park I have ever seen (4 acres fronting to a lake for them to swim in) and they have a water park that they operate in the summer months. Charleston is a great town to visit with good restaurants and a country marketplace to browse through. And Folly Beach (a quaint little beach town) is only 15 minutes away.

We'll be there in May.
