May 12, 2016 - On our way to West Point, GA

Left Demopolis campsite heading to West Point, GA. Arrived at R Shaeford Heard Corp of Engineer campsites. We have a campsite right on West Lake surrounded by trees and the view is spectacular. Picture does not do it justice. There is nothing but trees and the lake all round us. Mike and Anne have their campsite right beside us. After a long day of travel, and after getting setup at the campsite, we shared meatball sandwiches and corn on the cob. By this time it was getting late and we called it a night. No tv reception and boy is it dark...

May 12, 2016 - Great View of the Lake

Our camping site is on the shore of West Point Lake, with a nice view through the woods looking toward the lake, which is only about 40 yards away. We had an easy day of traveling except for our fuel stop at a TA truck stop in Montgomery, AL which was not very RV friendly. Traffic on I-85 was very heavy but we had an easy drive to West Point, GA for our turn off for the drive out to the campground. We have stayed in this campground before and really enjoy the quiet views. With our senior discount we are only paying $14/night and have 50A...

Aug 2, 2011 - 3 States in one day!

We headed out early this morning to catch up on some lost time and travelled through 3 states – Georgia, Alabama and finally arrived lunchtime into Tennessee and the Tim’s Ford State Park. Darren has become quite the pro at driving this huge beast of a motor-home up and down mountainous roads and round some pretty tight spots! Tim’s Ford State Park is a combination of large lakes and some beautiful wooded forests. We were disappointed we were not able to see or park near the lake, but were able to follow a trail down to the lake and came...

Jul 31, 2011 - Well I guess that's just camping...

After losing our trust in the GPS we went back to the old fashioned method of co-pilot (Lynne) and paper map (c/o Rand McNally). This method worked on the whole but with the challenge of some missing minor roads and elevation markings, as we realized when routing via the town of Pine Mountain and realizing yes it is a 'mountain'..! We likened this part to a fairground helter skelter ride in a rather large bus with dodgy brakes.. So once again Google maps lied, and the trip Friday turned out to be almost 6 hours and not 3.5...but in their...

Apr 28, 2010 - on the border

Before we left Biloxi we took a drive east past the towns we had heard so much about during Hurricane Katrina - Pass Christian and Bay St. Louis. Very sad. We could have taken lots of photos of building foundations or brick stairs leading to nowhere, but it was all just such a bummer. Occasionally, we could see some rebuilding in process, but mostly it was green and empty. Sometimes it was hard to imagine what we weren't seeing, since we were unfamiliar with this particular spot. If you are interested, they are plenty of good websites with...

Mar 18, 2008 - West Point

After the Rally we went to West Point Lake in west central Georgia, right on the Alabama border. It’s a Corps park and just another nice place to stay for a while. We met some folks who came in next to us in an RV just like ours and we exchanged ideas. Other than that we just spent a relaxing week parked next to the lake. Except on the weekend we were pretty much by ourselves.
