After much deliberation, we decided to head south into George Washington National Forest to spend some time in the mountains and hopefully see some awesome stars. Douthat State Park had a lot of recommendations and had hookups, RV friendly spots, and things to do with the dog. Luna was SUPER excited to come with us this time:
I was a bit nervous about driving through the mountains, but the route we choose was pretty straight and avoided the steep grades and switch-backs nearby.
We were in the Whispering Pines Campground, which is far away from the rest of the park and other camping loops. All the sites were far from each other, with a large gravel pad, picnic table, and campfire ring. It was really quiet and peaceful.
We spent the week exploring the park, hiking trails, and relaxing.
