The Good Ole Times at TCPC

4/16 - 4/24/12
The Cumberland Plateau Campground
Airstream Park
Crossville, Tennessee

Another Airstream only RV Park, members own their lot and there are also plenty of  visitor sites.  A beautiful park nestled in the woods about 15 miles out of Crossville.  While we were there the they were having their Tennessee State Rally with a theme of the "Good Ole Days".  We had a great time and met many wonderful people.

The hosts were Jill and Harry, cute as a button.  Harry was not able to get around as well as he used to be so Joe got their blower out and cleaned the leaves off their patio and driveway and also put this character  up on their tree.  Everyone here is a fan of University of Tennessee.

Here we are, dressed for the part

Then had a real cozy club house

The campground is in the middle of 345 acres and over the years they have put in many trails.
Like all Airstream Parks they need a lot of  volunteers to keep the area nice.

There were a couple of trees down, from the winter storms, over some of the trails so Joe helped to cut it up

While at the park we visited a Mennonite community, the area is called Muddy Pond.

This farm invites you into their home to buy all kinds of homemade goodies
Everything is freshly made every morning
In the fall they make sorghum
We bought bread, dinner rolls, cinnamon rolls, fresh eggs, and sorghum
Everything was so delicious

On down the road was this General Store 

At the leather/harness shop has hides hanging on wall for sale along with collars for their mules 

wagon parts

gun holsters

We also visited Fall  Creek Falls State Park.  The  park has many gorges, waterfalls and virgin hardwood timber.  The main waterfall is 256 feet, the highest waterfall in the eastern U. S. They have miles and miles of beautiful hiking trails.

Some parts where a bit steep

There are two trees holding this dead snag

The scary part was the sway and the slots in the boards that were splintering 

We thoroughly enjoyed our time at the Airstream Park, we hope to be able to visit there again.

Safe travels to all

Joe & Nancy
