Good idea Doug, Nashville is only an hour from Cincy via Greensberg, then I-74. I was kind of curious about Western Ohio campgrounds. Does Ohio use ReserveAmerica? Southern Indiana has some really good spots as well. Do we just post on this thread? Terry

Terry,
You can go to the Forum main page under Community.
There you should be able to see all groups and this one should be listed.
There is a discussion thread started in the group. You can posts there or contact anyone in the group by PM.
Ohio does use ReserveAmerica.

We have several good CG's here in the tri-state.

Ohio - Hocking Hills SP, Cowan Lake SP, East Fork Lake SP
Indiana - Versailles SP, Clifty Falls SP

I am not familiar with many Ky SP's. Cumberland lake SP, Mammoth Cave NP

Best regards,
Doug

Doug,

I'm going to be camping at the Hocking Hills SP next month. It does not look like it's going to be too full next month. I'm wondering if I should just show up and look at the sites and pick a nice one vs reserving a site now, any thoughts?

Justin,
You'll probably still be in good shape next month.
A lot of times I reserve a spot, but if there's spots open they don't mind you changing spots.
I'd love to meet you up there, but we're heading West.

Enjoy the trip.
Hocking hills is beautiful all year long.

Best regards,
Doug

Justin, We're going in April for weekend. We haven't booked yet. Don't know why because we're going with 5 or 6 other camping trailers. Have you stayed at this SP before? April shouldn't be any trouble getting a spot, but if the weather forecast is looking promising, then you'll notice the sites start to book up for the weekends. It seems like we end up over by the water tower because that is usually what is left. I've always wanted to stay at the other end because they have a really nice playground and the sites are more appealing.

There's a CG map on their website. Maybe you should book a site over where Kim has recommended and then you can always change after you get there if it's wide open.

Enjoy,
Doug

Kim,

I've never been there, but it does sound like a really nice SP. I'm from Michigan. Most of our camping has been in Michigan with gas prices such as they are. We are taking a trip to WV so this will be our 3 night camping trip on the way. I'm really looking forward to it.

Do you or Doug have any sites you know are really really nice that would be worth booking ahead of time, just to have it, just need one site. I'm just not sure if I ought to book and then change sites if we see/find a better one.

Justin,
I do not.
The websites now are pretty good and many will have pictures of the sites, how far away from bath houses etc.
Kim probably sounds like she could recommend something.

Kind regards,
Doug
