The Rhode Island Campground Owners Association is hosting the Northeast Campground Association’s (NCA) 2011 “Great Escape” Sept. 13-14 at Timber Creek RV Resort in Westerly, R.I., hosted by Bob and Carol Crandall.

David Tetrault, NCA executive director, sent out the following invitation to NCA members and friends:

On Tuesday, Sept. 13th at 12 p.m. we will begin with a Welcome Lunch sponsored by CheckBox Systems followed by an NCA Board Meeting. At 5 p.m. everyone will jump on a hay wagon for a tour of Timber Creek and enjoy Happy Hour. Dinner anyone? Evergreen USA is providing their famous Lobster & Steak Dinner to conclude our first full day. Yum! In the evening we will gather for a crackerbarrel to discuss whatever may be on our minds within the camping industry.

The breakfast and dinner meals on Wednesday, Sept. 14 are sponsored by Dura-Bilt and Timber Creek. Our day begins with a full breakfast at Timber Creek and then we leave for a bus tour of some great Rhode Island treasures, including historic Watch Hill, stopping at Whispering Pines Campground and Wawaloam Campground. After lunch at Wawaloam, the bus will continue on to Newport Harbor and we will enjoy a 90-minute Rhode Island Lighthouses and Newport Harbor Cruise. Following the cruise, we will be treated to refreshments at Worden’s Pond Campground and a coastal tour. That evening we will be spoiled with a BBQ Chicken & Rib Dinner upon our return to Timber Creek RV Resort.

As we all prepare to head home on Thursday morning our hosts, the Crandalls, will be serving a continental breakfast to start our day off right!
