Monday, April 18, 2016, Sugar Hollow City Park, Bristol, VA, 128.7 Miles, 6,964.6 Miles for the Trip

I packed up & headed out around 8:30AM this morning. I left my GPS set to "Ignore Highways", and spent much of the day on US 11E. The drive through Pigeon Forge was uneventful, traffic wise. Evidently, there was a large car show there which was why the traffic was so bad last Saturday.

I arrived at Sugar Hollow City Park in Bristol, VA around 1:30. Many, many electric only sites, most of which are quite unlevel. Since the entire campground was empty (there was a big race at the Bristol Speedway over the weekend, and everyone left). By empty, I mean no one. I'm in site 42, an electric only site near the bathrooms, and one of the most level sites in the park. I still had to use the Anderson leveler for side to side & unhook to get the trailer level front to back. Pretty wooded gravel sites, each with a picnic table & fire ring. There are water fill stations spaced around the campground & a dump station. Lots of one way roads & many sites with trees making backing in difficult, particularly for larger trailers, but no problems (other than leveling) for us little guys.

Site 42, Sugar Hollow City Park, Bristol, VA

I spent most of the afternoon reading & catching up on some forums & journals. It is in the 80's with enough shade to be comfortable.

Dinner was a Southwest Salad.

Until next time -
