Big rig camping

Hi all, looking at a 45 foot DP and wondering if any of you have problems finding camp sites in the east. I want to explore Georgia , both Carolinas, WV, Ohio, Kentucky, Tennessee, Alabama, Mississippi, and then head west. I prefer lake sites and state or national parks but Iíve had a tough time finding big enough sites in them . Not really interested in any big city areas. Thanks , Ken

We usually have no problem. My favorite is the new Creekfire Motor Ranch near Savanna. It is great.

With that size rig you will find yourself staying in commercial RV parks just outside of some of the places you want to see. Your will likely explore the National Parks in you towed vehicle.

As you head west, more BLM land and dispersed camping becomes available. Use your towed vehicle to scout a spot to park, if you are up for boondocking.

I have a Super C that is about 36' long and depending on what I am towing, I am usually looking at pull through sites that can handle 45 - 50'. I generally don't have a problem.... well... I will should say I used to not have much of a problem until the flood of newbies over the past 9 months.

Finding spots during the week is easier than finding them on the weekends. We stay at a lot of KOA's and other campgrounds where we can get full hookups and pull-throughs most of the time.

We did not chance it this year when we planned our trip out west for late August to early October. We booked all of our campgrounds back in January because I new it would be tougher to find on short notice. I would rather not have a hard and fast schedule but I'm afrraid that's where we are at this point if you want to be in certain areas at certain times.

We have already started plannign and booking are big trip for next year. We have already booked a campground for the 2022 Balloon Festival in Albuquerque in October 2022.

We have a 45' coach and camp in the VA/NC/SC/GA/TN/WV areas. We have not had an issue getting spots. I have found state parks in all the states we camp in without much issue. Not as many spots as smaller rigs can use, but preplanning enables us to find CG's we enjoy.
Last trip out we did private CG's including KOA without issues. One before I found small start parks in AL and GA that we fit in just fine.

Reserve America site lets you survey site sizes and length limitations, we use it to find CG we want in State Parks.
