Our second RV trip of 2016 is underway (the first one was on January) to Pine Mountain, Ga, about 40 miles north of Columbus and 100 miles southwest of Atlanta. We normally travel the interstates but I’ve been reading from lots of people about the joys of traveling the back roads and since we were not pressed for time, we used US-411 and US-27 to get there. The route worked well and I enjoyed the more leisurely drive and missing Atlanta. The only negative was the traffic lights on a 55 mph road that all seemed to be at the bottom of a hill resulting in smelly brakes a couple of times.
This trip was part of a two stop rally put on by the Tennessee Travelers Chapter of FMCA, of which we’ve been members about three years. We enjoy getting together with these folks and the rallies give us a reason to make short camping trips several times a year. Our first stop was at Pine Mountain RV Resort but it is a bit of a stretch to call it a resort as it was really just a decent campground. This is the entrance area.
This is our area and all of the coaches on the right are with our group - there is lots of room between the sites. That's us just before the red car.
Our site was fairly large and while it had a concrete pad it was overly sloped and we ended up with a 16" gap between the coach steps and the step on the ground. I ended up driving around the campground and finding some cinder blocks to make us an intermediate step.
The WiFi worked fine but we ended up with a site that was not satellite friendly and the cable was down until Sunday. I would stay here again but would be sure I got a site with satellite access.

Have a great day and thanks for stopping by Almost Heaven South.
