Our blog is to keep family and friends informed of our motorhome journeys.
We have dreamed of this for many years and finally our dream has come true.
We are looking forward to many happy miles ahead.

Arrival Stoney Creek Campground

26 May 2016

A 5 hour drive from Knoxville via IH 40 to IH 81 and exit 217 to Stoney Creek campground. The campground is on a small lake around 10 miles from the interstate near the town of Greenville.

Must say our initial impression was not good as we were led to our site #62. What appeared to be trash thrown into an area, I later learned was for recycling. Should have mentioned this when we checked in. There are many long term residents who do not take care of their RV's and have a lot of stuff outside. I realize I am a neat person who takes pride in maintaining our motorhome and may be viewed as a snob, but filthy is no excuse...after all soap and water are cheap.Letting mold and dirt accumulate  is no excuse. The sites around the lake seem nice, but very expensive. We do have full hookups, but no cell service at the sites or cable tv..they are working on it as well as the road into the campground. We are parked next to a 5th wheel that appears to have been here for sometime and they have at least 3 dogs who bark.

Learned Later This is Recycling

The campground is full for Memorial Day Weekend. Guess this type of camping is just not for us..so we have decided to leave on Monday instead of Wednesday. The owner did come by and I related my thoughts to him. John felt I was too critical.

Feel this could be a good campground with stricter rules and related this to owner. He has had it for 10 years and they are trying to improve with road coming in, getting cable etc. They are not sure how to solve the cell phone issue.

Our next  stop is at Candy Hill in Winchester..100 miles up the road..we stayed here in 2012..
