Tenting in the Fall
Readers have asked for short recaps of pros and cons about the parks I visit. I realize this is subjective stuff and what bothers some people, others won’t have a problem with, and vice versa. As a fulltime RVer, I like things that weekend campers can do without. But, based on my own observations and/or comments from others, here goes:
|Location, location, location: less than a mile from the Great Smoky Mountains National Park.||The biggest con for me was that my Verizon MiFi would not work, nor could I get a phone signal. See my comments below. Some people with Verizon service but with older phones could get signals, so go figure.|
|Riverside sites – and those sites come with covered decks overlooking the river.||Just be sure you reserve far in advance since they are the most requested in both Loops A and B.|
|Most campsites have generous space between neighbors.||Loop A sites do not get as good reception with park’s wi-fi as Loop B does. I understand they are addressing this issue with Comcast.|
|Natural setting, beautiful trees, Fall colors here are fantastic.||Some have complained about gravel roads and sites (but I say the less concrete the better).|
Malia’s 2 Cents: I loved it here so much I bought a Wilson signal booster for my Verizon MiFi and cell phone. While the park’s wi-fi worked fine for me, I needed my own secure connection due to my virtual assistant work for attorneys.
