Cassie - we are very familiar with both your favorites. We used to go to Tyler Creek several times each summer but the last few years we haven't as now we go to Baldwin Oaks usually when camping locally. As a matter of fact, we spend the whole week of the 4th of July at Baldwin Oaks for the last 5-6 years. We have several members of our family that camp there and it's like a small family reunion as it's usually the only time we see them in the year.

It sounds like our paths will definitely cross this summer and I'm looking forward to it!

Thanks for the warm welcome! Sharon, a couple of our favorites are Tyler Creek in Alto, & Baldwin Oaks in Hudsonville. We also liked Alice Springs In Ionia.... the furthest we have taken our trailer is to Mammoth Caves Kentucky. We stayed at a Yogi Bear park - there were six of us that caravanned down over an Easter weekend one year and we had a ball!

Cassie, welcome. Hope we can help you on your journey. I live in southern Louisiana, so can go camping whenever we want. We don't get the chance to camp very often any more. We did full time for about 5 years though. Let us know what we can do to help you on your journey to better health.

Hi Cassie - Gosh, I mentioned that I also live in SW MI but we're practically neighbors! Our home is located 2 miles south of Dorr. If you're familiar with Hillards, we're close to the restaurant at that corner. You definitely got some snow in the last couple of days so I;m sure you're looking forward to spring to get out in your trailer camping. Do you have a favorite campground you go to or do you travel at all. I did add you as a Spark Friend as I'm sure we can help each other.

Hello to all from cold snowy Wayland MI! I am new to SP (about 2 weeks in)...and am loving all of the tools this site has to offer. I too am an avid camper and can NOT wait for the warm weather to come back so we can packup the trailer and head out with the kids! Looking forward to making new spark friends along my weight loss journey. Friend me if you are looking for a support buddy.

Cathy - I hope your travels go as well as ours did. We ran in to snow on the ground in NM but the storm passed through a few days ago so the roads were clear and dry. As for our bed, I always used to love staying in a motel but there is so much in the media about cleanliness and bed bugs that it makes me appreciate my own bed in the MH. Our first night was luxury all the way but the second night was just a bare room with no frills. But it cost half what our first night did and we only used it to sleep so we can't complain. It was clean and I checked and found no bed bugs, lol.

My bed is one thing I truly love about our motor home - to be able to travel all over the continent and still sleep in my own bed every night! Glad to hear you made it back to Mesa, Sharon. Hopefully you had safe travels, good roads, etc. It has started to snow here, the temp just below freezing, so the roads have slicked up considerably. Supposed to warm up next week, so hopefully we'll have a good travel window to AZ.

I have to admit most of us on this team are into comfort RV's. It's not that I didn't enjoy camping in tents but I sure enjoy all the comforts of home on the road.

We arrived back at our winter home this afternoon and it feels like home to get back in our MH. Looking forward to my own bed tonight. I'm so used to our MH that I really didn't enjoy the motels the last couple of nights.

Hi Cathy,
Thank you for the welcome. I joined Spark People the 2nd week in November, so i've been a member for about a month and a half.
I agree with you about tent camping. What's the point? When it comes to tent camping, I always say that I'll do it. However, I much prefer 4 walls and a toilet where I'm camping (and sleeping). emoticon

Welcome! How long have you been a SPARKperson? I'm glad to see you're excited about camping & RVing. Me, too! I didn't do any when I was growing up, but my husband is an Eagle Scout, and it all started when we started dating - camping, hiking, canoeing - actually, we met on a canoe trip to the Boundary Waters Recreational Area. We were reminiscing this weekend about winter camping - in the woods, in the snow, very cold, in a tent with a little camp stove! What's the point? Winter MotorHome camping - much more to my liking, especially when it's in Arizona.

I look forward to getting to know you!

Cathy

Hi Everyone! I have been camping literally all my life. I am 33 and took my my first official camping trip when I was only a couple weeks old. The majority of my favorite family memories have been from days/weeks spent camping. I can't wait for spring to get out in the 5th Wheel again!!
