My Favorite Campground

I've been lucky enough to stay in lots of great campgrounds over the years, but without a doubt, my favorite is a little one about an hour away called Mountain Stream RV Park.  It's located about 5 miles south of Momma Sharon's favorite road in the whole world...the Blue Ridge Parkway.

There are a whole, whole bunch of reasons that I  like Mountain Stream so much....
  • there are only about 40 sites and they are nice and spacious so all those big boys aren't sitting on top of me!
  • Buck Creek flows right behind my favorite site and puts me to sleep each night!
  • the bathhouse is really clean and convenient and close by and my mom likes that!
  • there's a big open-air pavilion where people can gather for meals and music and I'm close enough to hear all the fun!
  • plus it's pretty there!

Back in the fall of 2007, Momma Sharon towed me to this great campground and I got to hang out with Aunt Becky and Murphy the Camper Dog.  And I got to meet a cousin of mine from Pittsboro, NC whose name is T@Bouli.  She's a clamshell and her mom and dad are Susan and Bob.  We all had great time visiting with each other.

Momma Sharon bought the neatest thing for me that summer.  It's called a BAL and it slides under one of my tires.  When she ratchets it up, it raises my tire off the ground and makes me sit perfectly level.  Of all the things she's ever bought me, I would rank this up at the top of the list!

Because we had perfect weather for our weekend of camping, I told Momma Sharon that she didn't need to put up my awning.  I really don't mind having that attached to me, but it makes me really happy when I have a great view of my campsite, my neighbors, and the creek behind me.

Did you know that food cooked outdoors always seems to taste better than food cooked at home?  Well, take my word for it, it does!  And something gets into Momma Sharon when she takes me camping...she loves to cook outside.  On this trip, she made Shish-Camp-Bobs and then a pineapple-upside-down cake in an empty tuna can.  Yep, I'm telling you the truth!  

Do you know the phrase "happy camper"?  Well, let me show you a picture what happy campers truly look like!  Oh....that's my buddy T@Bouli in the next site.

Well I'm glad you decided to stop by today to see if I had another story to tell.  And I hope you enjoyed me telling you about my favorite campground.  If you want your camper mom and dad to take you there, tell them it's about 15 miles off of I-40 in Marion, NC.  I know you'll like it too if you get to go there one day.  See ya later camper-gator!!
