Oct 18, 2018 - Fayetteville rv park

This is a very nice RV park close to I95 and we are in a long pull thru spot, get Dish and WIFI is good. We are close to Fort Bragg and hear some planes flying around. Would be a good stopping place for several days on another trip as the base has a Famcamp but it's treed and not very well maintained.

2018 Trip

Jul 18, 2018 - First Day of 2018 Trip

First day on the road. We had a challenging start, some equipment issues. However, by 8 AM we were on the road for Fayetteville, NC. It was a rather uneventful day. We drove 427 miles and arrived at Lazy Acres Campground around 4 PM. Lazy Acres is a mile off I-95, so it is nice and quiet. A nice swimming pool to cool off and rinse off the road "dust". The campground is very shaded and the roads and sites are packed sand, but nice and level. For $39 it is a great find, we will keep this campground on file for the future.

Jun 13, 2018 - Fayetteville, NC

Continuing our trek north we arrived at the Fayetteville RV Park in Wade, NC on June 11th. This stop was to visit our niece Susan and her husband Larry Adams who reside in Fayetteville, NC. This is a new park for us to visit recommended by Larry. This is a very well maintained park located about 20 miles north of Fayetteville. The main interior roads are paved and the sites are level with fresh solid gravel. Our pull-thru site was about 85 ft long. Nice pick Larry. The four of us had nice dinner at a local favorite restaurant called Fred...

Dec 7, 2017 - Fayetteville, NC

The Lazy Acres Campground is pretty much in the middle of nowhere. It is a nice park run by a couple of aging hippies, and they are very nice and friendly. The part is well kept and well maintained, which I can't say for many places we stay at. Andy was offered a job here right out of college, at a seed oil extraction plant. I think we are all glad that he did not accept the job, because I cannot imagine him being happy here. One very noticeable thing about this whole region of the country is THE SAND. Everywhere you go there is pure sand...

Sep 7, 2016 - Fayetteville N.C.

Today we crossed more of the Appalachian Mountains that cross these states diagonally. We were climbing and descending. There were beautiful green mountains and forests. We traveled high on a long ridge overlooking the valley. Then we traveled along more highway that went through mountains instead of around or over them. I guess since they do a lot of mining here it must be easier to just tunnel through the mountains. One of the tunnels took us from West Virginia into Virginia, that was a surprise. After the last tunnel, and traveling...

Jun 16, 2016 - Fayetteville, NC.

Fayetteville, NC is a halfway between Charleston and Williamsburg. A perfect overnight stop. The Fayetteville RV Resort is a very nice place. It has many military people for Ft. Bragg staying here. It is very spacious, clean and very well taken care of. We spent the afternoon doing laundry and relaxing in the pool. We did have a little adventure on the way here. We kept hearing a thump every now and then. We stopped twice to check the tires and things, but nothing. A car pulled along side of us on the highway and honked and pointed at our...

Oct 27, 2015 - Our time in NY and start of Fall 2015 trip

Our home base visit has come to a close. We remain sincerely appreciative for the hospitality of our son Ralph and daughter-in-law, Becky. We arrived at their home in Newark 7/3/15 and departed 10/23/15, which amounts to a significantly longer visit than the year before. The good part of a longer stay is that we have more opportunity to visit with friends and family; the bad part is we have more opportunity to visit so there is no urgency and we put those activities off. Consequently, we didn’t get to visit with many of the people we...

Jan 2, 2014 - Heading more south

After a good night's sleep in the Holiday Inn, we headed out before breakfast and traveled to the first rest stop on I95 where we made breakfast in the RV (one of the nice things about traveling with your "home"). Then we pushed on to Wade, NC where we stayed in an RV park overnight and after breakfast on Jan. 3, headed out to our first real stop on the trip down. We wanted to be in our campsite at Fort McAllister by check-in time to get one of the "premium" sites along the salt marsh. YES, we scored! Now we were really camping and had...

May 31, 2013 - Fayetteville, Friday

We spent the morning at the Fort Bragg Special Operations Museum. It showcases forces from the early 1940's through now. i was surprised that the admission is free, considering how large it is, and all the special effects they have (speakers above us with sounds of helicopters and gunfire, many videos, etc). One of the many new things I learned today was that during the Vietnam War, soldiers wore boots with special soles that made barefoot prints (toes and all) instead of treadmarks, to throw off the enemy. We watched the Band of Brothers...

May 30, 2013 - Fayetteville, NC

We decided to stop here for a few days, as Bill wants to see the Special Ops museum at Fort Bragg. It's only open Friday-Sunday, so we had a few days to kill. We spent all day yesterday (Wednesday) driving (by car) around the Wilmington/Cape Fear area. It's a typical college/coastal town. We had a great lunch, al fresco, of fried North Carolina oysters, and they were some of the best I've ever had - so-o-o tender! Then we went into Southport, which was the filming location for a 2012 movie I really liked, called Safe Haven. It's based on...

May 9, 2012 - Fayetteville, NC

We stayed May 8 and 9 at the Fayetteville/Wade KOA in Wade, NC. For our RV friends, this is a nice campground to stay in if you are looking for a place that is near the highway but also well maintained with nicely spaced gravel lots. Clarence went to the Airborne and Special Operations Museum which highlighted both special ops paratroopers and rangers in all of the wars since WWII. He reports that it is worth visiting if you are in the area. Sandy stayed back and did laundry, bathed Trip and had a little R and R. The group gathered last...

Apr 14, 2012 - Spring Walks in Fayetteville

Today, we knocked off hikes 30 and 31 in Fayetteville from 100 Classic Hikes. It was a beautiful spring day, around 70°F and sunny - perfect weather for seeing spring blooms. We started at the Cape Fear Botanical Gardens, arriving shortly before opening time at 10. After purchasing admission, we headed around the Cypress pond to the River Trail and followed it to the Cape Fear River. There were two overlooks here, Paw Paw and further down was River Overlook. There was too much foliage to see much from the first, but we were able to climb...
