Question Southern Egg Rally?

Anyone in the Southeast especially the Tennessee area want to plan an egg rally some day?
We need full hookups.

There is supposed to be an egg group that gets together in TN, GA, and AL.
Tennessee Camping Club
Link is down.
Anyone have contacts with them?

We are camping here this week:

Whispering River RV Resort - Walland
http://whisperingriverresort.com/

Features:
full hookups
next to the Little Pigeon River for trout fishing
close by the Great Smokey Mountains
has a pool
rather rustic but reasonable
Rated the best of Townsend and Walland the peaceful side of the Smokeys.
Close to Gatlinburg and the back entrance that is not full of tourist traps.

Another suggestion a campout next to Douglas Dam in Dandridge TN for the "high end" they have openings after the kiddies go back to school.
Anchor Down
New RV Resort, Breathtaking Views, Fireplaces, BathHouse, STAY WITH US

We host the annual Eggs on the Hiawassee River in NE Hiawassee Georgia in May, it has turned into a bigger rally than we ever expected. You should come to it.

On facebook look for the Egg Camping Club group.

The next rally I know of close is Cherokee in October if they are still having it, then there is LBL rally and then the Outer Banks rally.

The Hiawassee is really stinky in TN.
Got that paper factory in Calhoun.
Used to be Bowater but got bought out.
Bet it is cleaner in GA.
Does the rally have full hookups?
We need a sewer connections for our emergencies.
Happy Camper is great.
Breaks down stuff.
We use the camp restrooms for the non-emergencies.
Never use TP but use those wipes and dispose of them in grocery bags then right outside to our plastic bag that gets dumped frequently.

The rivers headwaters are in the NE Georgia area of Hiawassee near Helen. The rally is at Riverbend Campground and has sites along side the river. This is the nicest campground private or public that we have ever been to, 5 stars. They have full hookups and some W&E sites. The bathhouses are immaculate too. Its a family ran place and they sell the Happy Camper in their store.

The Cherokee rally is good I have heard, we missed it the year before last as I had a work conflict so we rescheduled 2 weeks later to avoid losing our deposit. The Happy Holiday campground is okay I guess but it doesn't compare to Riverbend.

Sounds great. Good to know that river is clean in GA.
We will check into the next Cherokee rally and the one in GA.

The egg group mentioned above holds a rally in Townsend, TN every April. While I tend to avoid KOAs, this one is special and worth a stay. Better still, the rally goers get a hefty discount over the usual rate.

Falls Creek is a definite on my list of places to see. I agree with Bill, the Townsend KOA is very nice, the rally was very informal with no planned/organized activities to my knowledge but the folks we met were friendly.

Hello,
I'm curious why you don't take initiative to start a rally at Whispering River or another one of your choice resorts? You seem to like the locations and what they offer.

In regards to Hiawassee, it does have full hook ups on some sites and they have one of the most immaculate/contemporary bath facilities I have ever seen in a campground. With your "stinky" reference, there is no area smell...quite the contrary in its natural mountain setting. Well worth the nightly fee.

2017 Autumn rallies in the region start with LBL and Eggshells in The Outer Banks. This year they are scheduled on the same weekend. The following weekend also has two area rallies scheduled. Cherokee (Western NC) and King of the Wild Frontier (Eastern TN).
You can refer to the 2017 Rally Map for these and other rallies. Most have FiberglassRV.com links to their threads, which will provide additional information.
