King of the Wild Frontier Fiberglass Egg Rally

2017 October 11 - 15 King of the Wild Frontier Fiberglass Egg Rally

Come join us for a few days of relaxing camping and fellowship in beautiful eastern Tennessee. We will be meeting at David Crocket Birthplace State campground October 11th - 15th. Come early or stay late to see the change in fall foliage. This will be an informal gathering with activities and entertainment. The campground has been recently renovated and has 40 full hookup sites, 30 sites with water and electric and 18 primitive tent sites. The campground is located near the scenic Nolichucky river. The Nolichucky river boasts some of the best fishing in the area and appears to be kayak and canoe friendly. The campground has 3 pavilions equipped with grills and nearby restrooms. This rally is open to all fiberglass campers and anyone interested in owning a fiberglass camper.

Let me be the only one that makes reservations at the wrong Davey Crocket State campground by using the following phone number to make your reservations - (423) 257-2167 and the address is 1245 Davy Crockett Park Road, Limestone, Tennessee 37681

Check-in early or stay later.



Wednesday:

Welcome Larry, to our Escape world. I see this is your first post, so tell us a little about this rally, have you had one in the past? Several members here have attended the Townsend Rally held in the Spring, but this date in October should catch the fall foliage in process.

Brenda and I will try to make this. We are just in Cincinnati, so not too far. Is there any good hiking around there?

King of the Wild Frontier Fiberglass Egg Rally

I have been a member of this forum for about a year to learn more about the Escape trailers and owners. I have recently added other fiberglass forums to the ones that I follow in an effort to reach out to as many fiberglass owners as possible and invite them to our rally. I am co-hosting this event with Maynard Waters and it is our first experience hosting a rally. I am very familiar with the different formats for fiberglass rallies as I have attended countless rallies in the last 5 years including 7 so far this year.

We selected David Crockett Birthplace State Park because the area is rich in frontier history and it is close to where Maynard lives. He recently visited the park and had a meeting with the park manager. She is putting together a program to describe the local history and will present it to the rally attendees. We have secured the pavilion next to the campground for some of our activities including the pot luck dinner and at least one evening of musical merriment. There will be information sharing sessions to discuss trailer maintenance items. We are also looking for other information sessions and other activities. If anyone has ideas and is willing to lead the activities please contact Maynard or me. The best way to contact us is through this forum or Facebook group - https://www.facebook.com/groups/769402993220782/

We want this rally this rally to be a relaxing and pleasant experience for all attendees. We have planned and scheduled activities but attendance is up to the attendees. There are also plenty other things to do at the campground including boating, fishing, hiking and historical displays to see. We are also hoping for natures display of fall foliage to enhance the experience. Hope to see you there!

We will contact the park manager concerning the hiking trails. Their website says there are some but the last time I was there was before the renovation and if memory serves they were short trails = less than a mile. I will report back when I find out for sure.

Yes, the DAVID Crockett State Park is 345 miles away near Lawrenceburg, TN! I'll already be out west by then, but if you do it again next year I'm game.

I am famous for making that mistake. Last year I made reservations at the right campground but went to the wrong one. It sure made for a long travel day when I realized what I had done. Don't worry Jon, we are already thinking about next year. Hope to see you out west when we get there.

From the park brochure - "Hiking - approximately 2.5 miles of trails range from easy to moderate, providing beautiful views and ample opportunities for wildlife and wildflower viewing." There is also a bicycle trail nearby for those with bikes.

Give us a little more notice for next year. Several of us just made reservations for a gathering in Indiana the same weekend.

There are a fair number of Escapes in Tennessee now, so maybe a bunch of us can try your get-together next year.

Good luck, and please post a report after your weekend.
