Moving East—April 8 to 11

Thursday April 8th we left Lake Tawakoni to head east for home.


We rolled out of Texas……….P4080003

Into Louisiana…………..



Crossed the mighty Mississippi River……..P4090026

Into Mississippi…….actually when you cross the river you are already in Mississippi but the sign is after the river.P4080013

We spent Thursday night at Ameristar Casino & RV Park in Vicksburg, Mississippi.   P4080015

The sites were all nice paved pull-thru with 50 amp and cable all for $24. It also included the breakfast buffet at the casino the next morning. We took the shuttle to the buffet and started to talk to a very nice couple who were also going to the buffet. Thinking we were together the hostess sat us at the same table so we introduced ourselves and had a great breakfast and found new friends at the same time. We exchanged information and sure do hope we see them again in our camping travels.P4090028

Next it was into Alabama………..


We stopped for the night Friday at Cropwell, Alabama at this Good Sam park.


Again the sites were all pull-thru and full hook-ups.


The campground had a beautiful lake and boating area.

Moving East 2 001 We drove through Georgia and into…………….

Moving East 2 003

At exit #4 off I-85 we headed for Carolina Landing where we will sit for the night. 

Moving East 2 004

This park has lots of amenities and a very large lake but we are not fond of the sites. Many are very unlevel and not always so easy to get into or out of.

Moving East 2 005

We picked a good end site with easy out in the morning. Only a short drive tomorrow to our next spot.


  1. Boy, you guys are moving! We are still in Red Bay, hoping to be out of here by Thursday or Friday and heading north. Safe travels.

  2. Great pictures & RV park reviews. We know all too well of the difficulty of finding useful information on new camping/park sites. I'd like to share with you a new (Free) iPhone app that should help with planning future RV/camping trips. We're quite proud of our app. Which lists 18,000 parks & lets you search for new parks by current location, state or city. Feel free to email me back with any questions or feedback on how we can improve our app and/or website. All of our reviews are created by real RV enthusiasts like yourself.

    iPhone app -

    Useful website - is a community site where anyone can review campgrounds,state parks and RV parks that they have visited for free.

    Here's our listing for the Ameristar Casino & RV Park that you mentioned above. It looks like no one has reviewed it yet. We'd really appreciate it if you took a few moments to add your thoughts.

    Happy RVin!
