We had no sooner parked our fiver back in the driveway last September after our trip to Lake George than we got busy planning for the next season.
We haven’t completely nailed down the exact dates yet, but generally we have planned one trip every month between May and October. It would be awesome if we could just take a short camping trip more than once a month, but working on Saturdays makes that pretty difficult. Even so, I’m pretty happy with the camping plans we have made for next year.
Hartwick Heartlands Campground – Cooperstown, NY
We are excited to have found a campground near Oneonta, NY which sounds big rig accessible. It is maybe 2 hours from here. You are probably thinking – Cooperstown – Baseball Hall of Fame…
however, we are interested in staying there because it is where Harry’s parents lived. Also, he has a brother still in the area. We have not been there since we have been together. And I have a friend who lives right there as well. So we hope to be doing some biking and socializing during our stay at this campground.

Lake George RV Park – Lake George, NY
We are excited about this stay! We will be attending our first Heartland rally – the NY state chapter. It is at the same rv park where we stayed this past September. It is also about 2 hours traveling time.
We walked around the campground and checked out the sites when we were there, so we know where our site is located. It’s a great spot, where we should be able to get our satellite up with no problem. We are looking forward to staying there again.
Brook n Wood Family Campground – Elizaville, NY
Their picture got blurry when I enlarged it a bit, so I had to leave it a little smaller. Hopefully you can see something in the picture without straining your eyes too much! This campground looks very nice, and also sounds big rig friendly. It gets really nice reviews. We are going to take a ride out there to check it out in the spring, but it looks to be about an hour, hour and a half from here.
Iroquois Campground and RV Park – Peru, NY
We chose this park because it is only 15 minutes from where my childhood home is located. We have been trying to get together for a few bike rides with my mom for the past three years, and we are hoping that this year is finally the year when we can make that happen.
A year ago October we went to my mom’s for the weekend, and I shared some pictures from our trip to Rulf’s, a local apple orchard. This rv park is only a minute or so from that apple orchard.
September 26 – 30, 2012
Copake KOA – Copake, NY
This is the second Heartland rally that we will be attending in 2012. It is the one for the Northeast region. We just lucked out that both the NYS Chapter rally and the Northeast Region rally were scheduled at
places that are basically right in our backyard. Copake, NY is also in the Hudson Valley, which is where we live, and we figure it is about an hour traveling time for us.
October 14 – 22, 2012
Seashore Campsites – Cape May, NJ
We are heading down to one more Heartland rally in Cape May.
We were already thinking of going to Cape May in October to hopefully enjoy one last little bit of warm weather. So when we saw the NJ Chapter had reserved sites at this campground in October, we figured it was a sign!
So there it is, our trip plan for the year. It will be a nice break from the past two year’s pattern of spending all the warm weather season working on the house. We will still have projects to accomplish around here, but we will be looking forward to the next trip while we are checking off the items on the list.
