What unusual campground have you stayed?

We have stayed at some pretty unusual RV parks, some very icky and others very pleasurable. Most are pretty routine . . . you know, basic office, gravel campsite, elec/water/sewer, etc. Some have mundane views, some have outstanding views. But where have you stayed that it so unique? So different than anywhere before or since?

For us it's Lakehead Boat Basin in Duluth, MN. Camp right with the boats docked in the harbor, right next to the shipping channel, nice view of downtown Duluth and near the historic and still operational arial bridge (you'll need to cross it, in fact). See the big ships coming in and out, and the part that's best, hear them blow their horns to signal the bridge to lift and hear the bridge report back. Historic shopping and restaurants close by, just right across that very cool bridge. Also close to the ship channel entrance from Lake Superior and the really nice maritime museum there. Also near is a world-class railroad museum in the old depot in downtown Duluth (see the DM&IR locomotive which is bigger than the UP Big Boys, plus much more).


See the RV Park website here (we have no affiliation, just fans of the place):

Welcome to Lakehead Boat Basin Duluth Minnesota Lake Superior

Cheatham COE park, Ashland Tenn. Waterfront sites overlooking the river. Watching the barges go up and down the river both empty and full.

Watching the barges going through the locks. Sometimes there are some many barges in one raft that they have to lock through in two or three separate pieces.

Rincon Parkway - Ventura, CA

Park right next to Pacific Ocean with a beautiful beach at your doorstep. Sunsets over the water are sublime and the whole RV community turns into a SoCal beach party at night.

QueenMine RV Park, Bisbee, AZ

This park is on a hilltop right in Bisbee. The sites are close together but the town views are very interesting. Some of the homes can only be approached by stairs and sidewalks - no streets to them! Walk to downtown and the mine for a tour - our tour was by a retired miner. There are beautiful pictures on their website which can be accessed through rvparkreviews.com.

We pulled into a CampGround in Eastern Georgia. Nice layout. went into the office to check in. Lady in a large office hi back chair facing away from me. I dropped my keys on the counter to get who ever was in the chairs attention. A lady stood up and came around the chair to greet me. to my complete and utter surprise.... She was Totally NUDE. and this lady definitely needed the cover of clothing to make herself presentable. We left and when in got into Mh I told my wife they didn't have any sites for a 40 ft MH. As we exited there was a sign..... Clothing optional Camp. safe travels... ed

Harper's Ferry West (by God) Virginia. The camp ground is on top of the hill and there are actual Civil War Trenches in the camp ground. Cool!! There were battles fought there.
