Yes we have. Pretty sure we visited the falls from there. We probably have that mapped, I just cant find it....as organized as I am NOT!

It is a nice park. Just bought our annual pass so we need to make sure we get our moneys worth!!

We expect it back in about a week or so then it is time to "hit the road"!!

Be safe, let us know how it goes..........

What are you having done to your coach? Nice that Newmar is close.
Patty and I were up at Newmar for a tour when we had some remodeling done by a local craftsman.

We are an orphan now, but we have a very good support group. At times I wish WRV was still around, but it would mean a trip back to Washington for a visit.

Hi everyone,
Elaine and I are both from Indiana too! I'm originally from Rushville and Elaine has always lived in Richmond. We both live in Richmond Indiana now.
Has anyone ever been to Brookville lake camping? Mounds state park and Whitewater state park are some great places to go. They are in the eastern part of the state, almost to Ohio. Brookville lake is 21 miles long,if I recall correctly. Would be really cool to have a RVI2 gathering of folks from Indiana!
We just bought a class a Fleetwood Southwind and have only taken it out once to try it out. We can't wait for warmer weather!! We are EXCITED to get out and go campin!!
Take care everyone, LOVE this site!!

Yes - it would be cool.........

Quite a bit - first and foremost - having them go through the house and chassis. I have talked to a local RV repair shop and a local Freightliner dealer and unfortunately did not like the work or some of the answers given to my questions - so - basically preventive maintenance work; having the bedroom ceiling & insulation replaced as it had a "good" leak this past winter - leak long fixed, need to finish the job. Having the electronics upgraded, new TVs front and bedroom, new satellite dish, Blu-Ray player, dash radio, and other small things that needed attention. All these small things add up quick!!!!!!! Hahahahahaha

The best part is that it is in good hands. Adds up quick like a boat (Break Out Another Thousand)

So we could all get together at Cornerstone Campground Cornerstone Campground - New Castle, Indiana near New Castle. It is just off I-70 at the New Castle exit number 123. They have a large building for rallies, although ours may not need inside facilities. The owners there are great, and it is close to Indy. 50 miles from I-465 and Indiana 37.
We were there 3 times last fall, twice with the grandson so he could play on the humungous playground set. We get in Fridays and order pizza (from the campground) to to be delivered to the coach.
I am sure there are other locations. Suggestions? Time - Early June?

OK Indiana RV'ers. We lost our nicely painted original water heater door somewhere on that smooth as silk I-65 between Louisville and Indy.
I have the new white one that stands out like a sore thumb. Anyone know of a great paint shop that will do small jobs...in size only, I'm sure cost will be plenty. If the work is good we could use a few other touch ups.
Thanking you!

Glenn if you can bring me a few Newmar stickers, maybe I can take it up to Nappanee.

Looks like a neat camp ground - gets good reviews on RV Park Review site - although the reviews are a couple years old.

We're down for getting together. Early June weekends are open as of now. But we can head out during the week too.

Tom & Pat - do you generally just get a water & elect site? Full hook-up sites seem to be far and few and I would imagine seasonal campers get those. Any of those w&e sites have 50amp do you know?

Let's get something together.

How about others on here?

We think Cornerstone would be perfect! We've never been there but, have talked with a few people that have and everyone seems to like it. We live pretty close too, maybe 1/2 hour drive. Just let us know on the when.

It's an hour and 45 minutes for us so we might have to just see where things end up since we have two trips in June already. BTW the big Fleetwood gathering at the factory is in June around that time too I think.

We'd be in for Cornerstone. Likewise, we have some trips scheduled in June, so need to watch for dates. Any ideas yet?

I didn't get an email notification of posts, so I just found these.

I have not heard back from Dan @ Cornerstone. I will reach out to him again and see if he has some spots.
