Texas T Campground

Saturday (Jul 4):

We had a quiet 4th of July. The campground had a luncheon for all of the campers where they provided sandwiches, drinks and chips and the campers provided everything else. The side dishes and desserts were very good and we enjoyed meeting some of the campers here at the campground. It rained all morning and all evening, so we ended up spending most of the day inside The Duchess (no fireworks for us).

Sunday (Jul 5):

We have been here at the Texas T Campground for several days now and this afternoon was the first time that we have seen the sun shine. The campground is a privately owned place just a few hundred feet off of I-65 in Cornersville, TN. It is a small campground that has pull through sites so it can accommodate large rigs. The campground was originally owned by a couple from Austin TX who gave it the name of Texas T Campground. About 12 years ago they sold it to a couple from Ohio who kept the name and they in turn sold it to a couple from College Station TX who are the current owners.

 The site we are in (Site 33) is a pull through site that is about 100 feet in length so we have plenty of room at the site. The campground has full hook ups with both 30 and 50 amp service along with having a few local channels on their cable and the WiFi has been decent most of the time we have been here.

The campground has a number of long term residents that work up and down the I-65 corridor along with a number of RV's that use this park as an overnight stop as they travel up and down I-65. There is a mixture of travel trailers, 5th wheels and motorhomes in the park. Our motorhome has been the biggest in the campground until today when an Entegra Conerstone (45 ft) pulled in beside us.  Here is a view down the "street" that we are parked on.

This is a small creek that runs beside the campground that has been flowing quickly with all of the rain this area has received lately.

There are a number of places we would like to visit that are within an hour's drive of this campground although with my family reunion coming up later this week our time will be limited. My dad arrived at Henry Horton State Park Lodge today and came over to visit with us for a couple of hours. It was nice to see him again after several months of only phone calls.
