Oct 11, 2012 - Baxter

After spending the night in a cold (the temp dropped to 30 degrees), noisy and busy truck stop parking lot last night we were very ready for the comforts of an RV park tonight. We stumbled upon a very comfortable RV park named Twin Lakes Catfish Farm and RV Park only two miles off the interstate in Baxter, TN. As luck would have it we arrived on “All You Can Eat Catfish” night so I didn’t have to prepare dinner tonight! The catfish, hushpuppies and fries were some of the best I’ve ever tasted. Dinner was such a taste treat that it was very...

May 9, 2009 - Weather, Whether We Like It or Not

Last night we went to sleep with the windows open, woke up at midnight and turned on the AC, then were awakened around 4 with thunderstorms and needed a blanket.

A far cry from when we were tent campers, Charlie snoring and...

We had sunshine when we crossed the Cumberland Plateau and stopped at the Twin Lakes RV Campground and Catfish Farm, in Baxter, TN. They have two manmade lakes stocked with catfish, a restaurant that does a brisk business, and a small campground. We had a candlelit...

Aug 1, 2007 - Baxter, TN

After selling our house we moved over to Baxter and camped for 30 days while Ray continued to work. We then moved on to Crossville to the State park there, we spent one week and just relaxed and began to get the feel of how life on the road would be. Our next stop was Pigeon Forge where we spent a week with my Aunt Judy and Uncle Bryle. We shopped every christmas store and visited the sites. We took a side trip to the Biltmore House in Ashville, NC. This trip was very informative and the house was just beautiful. I highly recommend this...
