Willow Tree RV Resort, Longs SC April 28-30 2017

 

We have been going to Willow Tree for the last couple of years and usually visit in the spring and fall.  The campground has large sites, I believe these sites are about as large as we have ever stayed in.   Most campground utilize smaller sites trying to fit in as many units they can.

All sites are paved pull-thur with a patio, no cable and slow wifi. As a side note our Verizon signal was slow too. This is probably the cleanest campground we have been too. They have a  camp store, laundry, game, and exercise rooms. Large pool, hot tub and a lake for swimming and fishing. There are some long term units and it’s a favorite snow bird location.

Office and Camp Store
We met three other couples from Hope Mills and Fayetteville NC. Most of our camping weekends are with one or more of these families. They all arrived by dark on Friday evening and we were excitedly waiting for the arrival of our friends, who have purchased a new 40FT Tiffin DP.  They purchased the Tiffin at Lazy Days in Florida during April and this was there first camping trip.  They rolled in and set up like pros and the coach sure is pretty and I know that they will enjoy it. They are in the process of downsizing and selling there home to become full timers.  Both plan to retire in December.

No better way to start Saturday, then with Barbara and Robert cooking the sausage and bacon for breakfast.  Jane flipped the pancakes for everyone.  LOL  all I had to do was show up.  A time of fellowship was had and then it was time for Robert to give me a in depth tour of the outside bay areas of his Tiffin and all the cool gadgets it has.  All I can say is…..I was impressed!  That coach has a lot more “stuff” than our Windsport does.  The day was beautiful with plenty of sunshine, it was a little windy which kept a good breeze going.  Had time to tinker around the motorhome and even got in a bike ride around the campground.

Breakfast table discussion.

Everybody busy!!
For our Saturday night potluck, everyone brought ingredients for a “low country boil.”  Ricky, with Tina taking care of the timer fixed up a pot of potatoes, sausage, corn and shrimp that was enjoyed by all.  The wind calmed down by dark and we were able to enjoy time together around the fire ring.  Ricky popped us some popcorn for dessert.

All to soon, it was Sunday morning and time to pack up for our return trip back home.  The weekends always seems to be so short when you are out enjoying time with friends and on the road with the motorhome. Check out time was 12:00 so it was back to reality as we hit the road back to Wilmington where we got things put up and got ready for the work week to began.

Tammy and I are looking forward to when we will be able to hit the road for more then just the weekend seeking fun and sun!

Thanks for visiting our site and please come back.
