Caney Creek RV Resort is located on Watts Bar Lake in Roane County, Tennessee. Many sites in this gated RV park are located right on the water and have gorgeous views.
The park is located off Highway 70 and has a very attractive entrance.

The clubhouse is relaxing with outstanding views of the lake.

Having a campfire next to the Airstream always makes a great day even better.
This is living riveted.
I grew up in East Tennessee but for some reason I just never spent much time in Cumberland Mountain State Park. Last month, my parents requested a day trip to the Cumberland County Playhouse to see a Johnny Cash play in celebration of their 64th wedding anniversary and while there we had lunch at the park restaurant overlooking the beautiful park bridge. Immediately we knew that we had come back for a weekend soon.
This was our first official camping trip after getting home from picking up our new Airstream from Colonial RV in Lakewood, New Jersey. And lucky us, we inadvertently picked the weekend for the annual Homestead Apple Festival. It was a very good first trip with lots of valuable lessons learned for a couple of newbies. A few of which were:
- wimpy wheel chocks are just flat dangerous;
- if you don't like your assigned spot don't hesitate to ask for a different spot;
- be prepared for heavy rain at all times; and
- we're not very happy campers without wifi :-)
Although we have a lot to learn, our new Airstream is already a pro. There is nothing about her that isn't amazing.
We had a little extra time while in southwest Virginia and opted for a stop in historic Abingdon. Sounded simple enough -- let's exit the interstate, find a place to park, and take a walk down the historic Abingdon Main Street. But finding a place to park 40 feet of truck and Airstream can be just a little difficult.
Luckily we found an empty parking lot at a downtown church and hoped they wouldn't mind. Thank you, Abingdon Baptist Church.
Abingdon, Virginia is a beautiful town that's loaded with history and well worth visiting.
If you're towing an Airstream, don't let that stop you. There's plenty of parking.
This is the Harmony Hill Road Covered Bridge in Pennsylvania. It is located at the intersection of Harmony Hill Road and Route 322. Built in 1872, it is 78 feet long and 14 feet wide. Nope, not going through there with an Airstream but so glad we got to drive by and see it.
We had just left the KOA in Chester, Pennsylvania. This was night #3 as "newbies" in our Airstream. Making our way to the Pennsylvannia Turnpike enroute to I-81 south, the roads were challenging to say the least -- narrow, hilly, and rough -- presenting us with lots of opportunities to refine and develop driving skills while towing a big trailer.
At the Pennsylvania Turnpike entrance, we could not for the life of us find the turnpike ticket that you are suppose to pick up at the manless ticket booth. So to avoid an excessive fine of exiting the turnpike in about 80 miles without a ticket, we pulled over to the side and I risked life and limb to run across 8 lanes of traffic to beg forgiveness of a yet to be found ticket agent. Extremely long story short, I survived all the dodging, angry traffic triumphantly with a ticket in hand and all was well.
Highlight of the day was definitely the beautiful covered bridge.
We spent two nights at JJersey Shore Airstream Haven, an Airstream only campground in South Seaville, New Jersey. The campground host, Keith, was extremely helpful to a couple of newbies and took the time to make sure we had the best site available and everything we needed for our first two nights in our new Airstream.
The campground is extremely clean, peaceful, and the people super friendly. The peace and quiet at this place must be experienced.
Jersey Shore Airstream Haven was the perfect place to start our new Airstream adventure. If you're in the area looking for the perfect area to relax and unwind, give them a call. You can thank us later.
