We do not talk much about the campgrounds we stay in. There is no particular reason for this, it just worked out that way. As we prepare to depart tomorrow for point south, we were discussing how much we really like the Harvest Moon RV Park here in Adairsville, Ga. This is one of the few places that we have returned over and over. The simple reason for this is that it is the best place we can find near our grandson.
Way back in 2006, we searched out the places we might stay and the closest was the KOA in Calhoun, GA. Now we generally are not KOA fans, but we gave it a try during our first stop here. It proved to be an absolute disaster. Since we were only months in to our adventure, we did not have the good sense to just turn around and leave. As we approached, we were greeted by a prison like sign with harsh words about condition s there. We pressed on and were greeted by a hostile staff but again, we continued on. Our site was small and very unlevel. Again being new at this I was worried about getting out already. We mentioned that we would be having our daughter come to see our new motorhome. That was okay but for the privilege of sitting in our motorhome she would have to pay $3 a person plus $5 for parking her car. The day of our departure was pouring rain and I was worried about making the tight turns. It turned out this was a valid concern , in that, the trees and a power pole at the far end of the park, where I was required to go, had sagged and were hanging over the road. It was the first and (so far) the only time I have had to disconnect the car to extract myself from a situation.
Anyways, the second place we tried was the Harvest Moon RV Park. It has very wide roads, great pull thru spots, full hookups including cable, WI FI, and laundry-all at no charge, and the cleanest we have come across. If you like movie theater popcorn, you can get all you want free in the office. The owner handles the office and is friendly and helpful. The one funny thing is; he does not use a computer and writes everything down in a notebook. Yet he has one of the best WI FI’s we have seen. In our five years on the road, this is definitely one of our top ten campgrounds.
This would make a great overnight spot as it is also very close the freeway.
