Campground Review: Twin Knobs

On our way home from Tennessee after watching the eclipse, we headed north into Kentucky and stopped for the night at Twin Knobs Campground. We were sorry we were only there for one night. It was not crowded and the sites were wooded and clean.

Twin Knobs sits amidst the Daniel Boone National Forest, north west of Lexington, Kentucky of KY-801.

Davy Crockett Campground

After a very long drive we arrived at Davy Crockett Campground, our home for then next  couple nights as we visited to take in the eclipse. Located in Crossville, Tennessee, this campground is about halfway between Nashville and Knoxville.

The campground was very crowded that weekend and they had people packed in where they could.

Campground Review: KOA Buckeye Lake

Review of KOA Buckeye Lake

KOA Buckeye Lake

We headed west for a quick weekend with the Aliner in tow. The weekend before, a quick search located a campground about 40 minutes east of Columbus, our final destination for Saturday. KOA Buckeye Lake seemed to sit right off of I-70, accessible easily, as we would possibly arrive after dark and the farm roads in eastern Ohio can be curvy and dark.

Campground Review: Top O’ the Caves near Hocking Hills, Ohio

In mid June, we headed west – destination: Hocking Hills, Ohio. First timers, we had only heard stories of the caves and hills of this region. We needed to see for ourselves. Living in Pittsburgh, we found it hard to believe that Ohio actually had the type of topography described by visitors instead of the plains that we tended to see miles before us just before crossing the Pennsylvania border.

Campground Review: Shenango Recreation Area

Campground Review: Shenango Recreation Area

Closing Time

We camped at Shenango Recreation Area in late September. Arriving on a Wednesday and planning on departing on Sunday, we weren’t even sure they were open when we arrived. No one was at the gate and after some fumbling around, we realized that it was the honor system until the weekend. We drove around and chose our spot (much of the park was closed and unavailable), then headed back to pay by sticking a check in an envelope and placing it in a lock box. The ranger did stop by later and check our site and the campground hosts were still there, so all was good.
