Heading to Congaree NP, on to The Great Smoky Mountain NP, Shenandoah NP then cross county to Mammoth Cave NP and finish up on the Natchez trace. Hope to see some of you on the road...Pemsit AKA Lou

pemsit,

you mentioned congaree national park and unless they've added it very recently, you'll not find camping available there. there is, however, a great state park nearby. sesqui state park (http://www.southcaro...troduction.aspx) is in an utban setting but, you'd never know it while you're there. very convenient to the freeways that will get you to the congaree np. i live about 10 minutes from sesqui so if you need anything let me know (pm me for a phone #)

'Trace

Camping actually ON the 'Trace is limited. There are full hook-ups not far away.

Should be beautiful this time of year. Speed is limited, so be sure not to figure on a zooming trip.

Well I am back from my trip, had to cut a week from it due to knee problem. I did see Congaree, camped in Smokemont Blueridge and Skyline drive.
I love my Casida, first time I have ever been able to take a hot shower when camping with no utilities available. The more I use my little house the better I like it.
This Summer will be limited to close by trips and in the Fall a nice long trip, just not sure where yet.
Kids were out of school in TN and the Campgrounds were packed.
