Traveling Moms know sometimes, the final destination is less important than the journey itself. After leaving our home state of North Carolina, it only seemed natural to stop somewhere in South Carolina.
We chose to purchase a Thousand Trails membership the weekend after we purchased our camper. The decision simply made sense for us. We had invested a couple hundred dollars to join our friends for a three day week in a trails campground. We were able to apply those funds and a little bit more, to purchase a basic, regional membership. Purchasing an RV membership is a great option. There are a ton of different memberships out there; research to find one that suits your needs and your budget.
Since the Oaks at South Point is a Thousand Trails campground, we were able to stay for free. The campground is very well operated by a retired military service member. He is a stickler for the rules, which means very few cars speeding through the camp and extremely clean sites. Personally, I truly appreciate that. Enforcing rules keeps the campground safe.
It rained for the majority of our stay, but we did venture down to Hilton Head Island for a little vitamin sea. We stopped to pick up two bodyboards from Walmart. The kids were wild and free and had the time of their lives!
We chose to have fun with cooking in the camper during our stay. I used my oven for the first time to make cinnamon rolls. The kids were impressed! I was also excited to try cooking salmon. It turned out phenomenally. Apparently, Katie's new favorite food group is mom's salmon!
