And be sure to catch up on all our recommendations for the best resorts for RV travel in February, March, and April.

Grandma’s RV Camping, Shepherdsville, Kentucky

New in 2002 Grandma’s pull through sites are in the 70-75 foot range. Streets are paved and sites are gravel. With no one in the office we picked a site and registered later. Wi-Fi works well from this site; no problem locating our satellite. Since utilities are located near the rear of the site, the toad needs to be unhooked and parked at the front of the site.

An excellent base for exploring nearby Louisville, Bernheim Arboretum, Bardstown, and the Bourbon Trail.

A+ Motel & RV Park, Sulphur, Louisiana

This park is named as it gets an A-plus in our book. A+ Motel and RV Park has everything an RV wants and needs. All 134 concrete pads are outfitted with full utilities as well as Wi-Fi and cable TV. There are plenty of bathhouses, showers and laundry facilities to take care of all things dirty along with picnic tables, BBQ pits, a dog run and more, all under 24-hour security.

Throw your line out at their private fishing pond, take the boat out or relax in the adults-only heated pool. Just choose which body of water you want to relax or get around on, Lake Charles, Prien Lake and the Calcasieu River are nearby. You’re also right next to the great flora and fauna of the Creole Nature Trail.

Coastal Georgia RV Resort, Brunswick, Georgia

Coastal Georgia opened in 2009 with paved streets and sites along with paved picnic table pads. Most pull-through sites are in the 65-75 foot range with back-in sites from 55-65 feet. Amenities include Wi-Fi, cable TV, swimming pool with covered patio. A tastefully done pavilion with fireplace and deck overlooks adjacent lake.

We would return in a heartbeat. Located on I-95, Exit 29. Visiting historic Brunswick and the Golden Isles are worthy of your consideration.

Portland Fairview RV Park, Portland, Oregon

This park is easy-on, easy off and on our route east on I-84; also convenient for RVers continuing north on I-5 to Seattle and beyond. Although our pull-through site is just shy of 50 feet (requiring unhooking at the site) there are about 10 pull-through sites 60+ feet where unhooking is not required.

30/50-amp electric service, water, sewer, and cable TV are centrally located but some distance apart. Of the 25 cable TV channels about half are too snowy to watch comfortably during our stay in April 2015.

We have a mostly level pull-through site (#29) in the 60-foot range. Utilities are interspersed with the 30/50-amp electric service located toward the rear of the site making it necessary to park the toad at the front of the site. Most back-in sites tend to be considerably shorter and slope downward. There are nine new pull-through sites in the 70-90 foot range. Interior roads and sites are gravel.

Stayed at Whispering Hills for seven nights and explored nearby Bourbon and Bluegrass Country. A generally pleasant campground in a pastoral setting.

Whispering Hills RV Park is located approximately 2.5 miles off I-75 (Exit 129).

Worth Pondering…
My home is wherever I am.
