Summary below:

No rally fees. Old & new travel trailers & motor homes welcome. With a strong emphasis on fellowship, inclusiveness, and relaxed scheduling, gathering in Hiawassee, Ga. has become a tradition for many of us who have met at this location for many years, to meet, share information, and enjoy time together as spring blossoms bud and temperatures warm up. Beautiful campground on a lake with mountain backdrop with spacious sites. Small, rural town of Hiawassee, with grocery stores, great Mom & Pop restaurants, antiquing, etc. only 5 minutes from campground.

Arrangements had been made with the good people at Georgia Mountain Fairgrounds who graciously agreed to hold 30- 40 sites in Area 2 for us as well as reserve the pavilion for us Friday evening and all day Saturday. This is Full hook-up campground.

As always, rally events include a Friday icebreaker, Saturday morning brunch, a Saturday afternoon Tour of Trailers, Saturday evening potluck, after dinner entertainment, and campfires!


Let me know if there is an interest in a coordinated swap meet for camping goodies or other homemade type goods. In the past, some folks have just set up or put out things near their trailer. This may work fine. Email me directly.


We are considering some brief informative seminars…if anyone has a suggestions of something they’d like to see, email me directly. Since it worked well in the past, we want to maintain the loose, laid back structure of all the previous years’ events held here so we hope to keep these seminars brief. At the same time, we want to learn any tips & tricks from more seasoned campers. We’re not looking to tie anyone into a schedule. There will be no sign up, etc for any possible seminar. When a time is determined, it will be posted. If it is something you want to attend, you can attend or not. I may do one on TST Tire Pressure Monitors if there is interest. A great product many of us already use & I’ve been a distributor for them for several years.


Basically, a seasoned camper introducing interesting campgrounds to some of us that haven’t heard of them…audience participation encouraged…audience, please bring a brief description of your favorite campground to this seminar…or be prepared to offer basic info about your favorite campground.


We are also considering a seminar on lady’s towing. (still reaching out on this one). I know many of you ladies already do tow!!! Others may be interested, either to tow on their own or as a backup in case of an injury of their other half. I recently had foot surgery and could not drive for 30 days. If there are any ladies interested in this seminar, please email me. If there is a lady interested in presenting this seminar (I personally know of at least three qualified to present!), email me directly.

I know we are looking forward to meeting up in Hiawassee again with old friends! Thanks!
