Do you recommend a place in Door County? We have been there many times, but have only rented a condo. Now that we have a new TT, we are wondering where some good spots would be to camp in Door Country. Thanks!

We stayed at the Custer KOA - reasonably priced and full hookups. (We've stayed at the Hill City KOA, too, but it is HUGE - 1500 sites!!! Custer is smaller and more quiet.)

Go see Custer SP. Drive Iron Mountain Rd and Needles Highway (can't take your trailer there - you'll see why). See Mt Rushmore (hike the President's Trail) in the daytime - then go back for the evening show when they entertain, then light up the mountain. Also visit the Crazy Horse sculpture project.

At Keystone - or Hill City - you can ride a steam train through the mountains from one end to the other, then back (either way). Lots of shops and restaurants, and a museum or two in either town.

If you have kids, you'll want to go to Bear Country - a drive-thru wildlife park. Well worth the money!

And Wind Cave is in the area too - a national park. We took the cave tour. Very interesting and different from the other caves we've been in.

If you have time, Badlands NP is just east on I-90 - about 85 miles. We stayed at the White River KOA. Badlands is worth driving through and hiking around some - a day, anyway. And as you leave, drive north to Wall, SD - for your free glass of ice water! LOL! That's been their hook since the 1800s. Even though it's a tourist trap, it's well worth a visit, just for some great burgers and ice cream. (And you'll buy T-shirts, I'm sure!)

You asked for ideas. here's a few, all less than 100 miles apart.

Custer State Park has electric hookups, but not full hookups. We are staying in the Game Lodge campground the 2nd week of June. Looking forward to a great time!

Mine will be a trip to Virginia Beach for a week without DW and DS#2 who have other commitments. So it'll be just me, DS#1 (11) and the dog ... and two of my nieces (11 and 8) who have been itching to go with us for a while now. The trip will be interesting regardless of how it turns out, but I'm hoping it'll be for really fun reasons.

Hope you all have very effective security and strong locks on your doors and windows when you provide the exact destination of planned travel along with the exact dates you will be gone. Your home contains valuable possessions. Just sayin'.
