RV Park and Campground Briefs
From the Red Bluff Daily News:
Nearly 100 vintage trailers are expected to fill Woodson Bridge RV Park Saturday (April 21) near Corning, Calif.
It’s something to see, said organizer Tony Alvarez.
Alvarez, a vintage trailer enthusiast, started the rally with his daughter-in-law three years ago, he said. The first event had 13 trailers. Now, in its third year, the event already has 88 participants registered, he said. However, they expect even more to show up Saturday.
Each trailer, from the 1940s to 1960s eras, is towed by a classic car, Alvarez said.
There will be a swap meet where owners can buy and sell trailer parts.
Open house will be from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. and will include a parade down the main strip of the park.
Lunch, provided by the Woodson Bridge RV Park, will be available for purchase.
Alvarez will be showing his 1954 Oldsmobile Arrow towed by a 1968 Chevrolet wagon, he said.
Anyone interested in finding out more can call (916) 539-3383.
From the Star-Ledger:
An overnight fire at a campground in Vernon, N.J., consumed three unoccupied travel trailers, two sheds and a car before being put out by fire personnel from several surrounding communities, the chief of the Pochuck Valley Fire Department said.
“They were a total loss,” Chief Marc Cosh said of the trailers at the Tall Timbers campground and recreation area, a gated community in the northwest corner of the Garden State.
The fire, of undetermined origin, was put out by fire personnel from the Vernon and McAffee departments, Sussex Borough and Pine Island, N.Y.
Sussex County’s fire marshal is investigating, Cosh said.
Several Alabama state park campgrounds now offer campers free Wi-Fi Internet access so park guests don’t have to be completely disconnected from the rest of the world while enjoying the great outdoors.
Parks that already offer the service include Lakepoint, Gulf, Wind Creek, and Cheaha state parks, according to a press release from the Alabama Department of Conservation and Natural Resources.
Several other parks, including Lake Guntersville, Joe Wheeler and Oak Mountain, are in the final stages of establishing Wi-Fi.
The release says the Alabama State Parks Wi-Fi network allows guests to access the Internet from anywhere in the campground instead of requiring campers be in a “hot spot” to use the service.
Several state parks that do not have campgrounds offer free Wi-Fi in or near the park office or store. The parks include Blue Springs, Monte Sano, Buck’s Pocket, Florala, Frank Jackson, Lake Lurleen and DeSoto.
