Hidden Treasure on Alabama-Florida State Line

Until 2 weeks ago, Lake Jackson RV Park was a State Park. But the city bought it, hired a friendly and knowledgeable Park Manager (who happens to come from Ohio, too), and is hoping to build it into something special. Well, I can tell you that it’s already special. Continue Reading

The GORGE-OUS Gorge & Watkins Glen State Park, New York

This is the second article in a series about The Roadster’s travels to New York’s Finger Lakes Region.  

After two days in Niagara Falls, NY, we braved the potholes and traffic on I-90 E and then took 14 South to Watkins Glen, NY (which took about 3.5 hours in Bessie the RV).  Once you get off I-90, it’s a gorgeous drive that took us through the historic town of Geneva, NY, and past wineries and farms along Seneca Lake.

We are fortunate to frequent one of Ohio’s most beautiful State Parks, Mosquito Lake.  I know, I know… the name.  It’s a little concerning.  Even better, there is a “Swine Creek” in Northeast Ohio, too.  Continue Reading
