    Our family has been camping in our Grand Design Imagine travel trailer for 6 years and we’ve stayed in over 60 campsites. Not all campgrounds are the same and it’s not possible to get the best site every time. I put quite a bit of research into where we are going and which site to pick in the campground. This is the main reason I started the Imagine Camper blog, to give reviews with details and photos that the campground website might not have. We wanted to share a resource that we discovered to be helpful in our research and booking of campsites. Campgroundviews.com serves as a campground directory, reservation…

    Boondocking – Greensboro, GA

    03.18.22-03.20.22 Boondocking – When you camp without water, electric, and sewer hookups. Sometimes referred to as dry camping. In the six years that we have owned our camper, we made reservations and stayed at campgrounds with electrical and water hookups. This trip was our first time boondocking and everything went great with the process—we are already looking forward to the next time. Our friends from Virginia came down to Greensboro, GA for a US Sprint Enduro dirt bike race. All five family members raced during the weekend, including the three little girls. As soon as we were invited, we canceled our reservation at the state park and started researching generators. …
