Dickens RV Park and A Visit With Mike, Gina And Family

Moncure, NC

38 deg clear, no wind.

Forecast = Partly cloudy. High 69F. Winds SSW at 5 to 10 mph.

The  Dickens RV Park is really a nice park but it just doesn't have the features that Jim and Linda would prefer.
This is the sign you see from the road.

As you enter the park these are some of the sites that you see off to your left.

Straight ahead is the bath house/laundry to the right and the owners house to the left.

Off to the right you see the larger section of the campground sites.

As you can see, there's no grass or trees in the RV site areas.

There is grass between some of the rows of sites and some trees in those areas, but basically the whole park is just covered with large gravel.

But, Kent, the owner is very friendly and helpful and so is Marty, the manager. The park is within about 20 to 30 minutes from Mike and Gina's house, so for 10 or 12 days, it'll do nicely.

Speaking of Mike and Gina, Jim and Linda finally got to see them yesterday. You see, because the kids didn't have school on Thursday or Friday, Mike and Gina had made plans to go to Williamsburg, VA this past Thursday through Sunday before they knew when we were going to be here. Jim and Linda knew that and told them to call when they returned.

Well, yesterday afternoon, (about 3:00 or so), Mike called, said that they had just returned, and wanted to know if Jim and Linda could come over for a couple hours? Well, it didn't take Jim and Linda long to get ready and in just a little while, Big RED was taking them over there. ;-)

It sounds like they had a very nice visit, but because everyone still had a lot of unpacking to do and the kids had to get everything ready for school today, around 5:30, they left and headed back here to the park.

Both Jim and Linda said that it was really good to see everyone. They had a very nice visit and plans were made to go back over there this evening.

Did you know that North Carolina is the largest producer of sweet potatoes in the nation?

  1. You're in our favorite park when in that area. The downside it's a long way from Raleigh when you need to go into town every day. Our second love is the fairgrounds which you can't get into when there's a fair. (October). Now I'm wanting to go there to see friends.
