We rolled into the final KOA of our journey east on September 14th, 12 days after leaving White Salmon. Our trip was almost complete, going through high desert, cornfields, cities, and staying at more KOAs that you can shake a corn cob at. While we weren’t quite arrived in New Hampshire yet, we were in New England, and it felt like it.
The Quechee/Pine Valley KOA was pretty nice, honestly reminding me of campgrounds in the Columbia Gorge. Lots of trees to shade everything, camp fires putting up smoke that settled in the morning to inundate everything, and very peaceful.
All KOAs have events, mainly for kids, and we’d tried to take advantage of them when we had time. This was one we could: a hay ride! The kids loved it. I wish they’d provided some cushions for the older adults, though 🙂
As a lot of the campgrounds we stayed at, this one had a fantastic, very photogenic lake. I was lucky with many of these over the trip. Pretty.
For dinner we went into the town of Woodstock — about 15 minutes away — to a place called Worthy Kitchen. Very cool place, with a modern gastropub menu, a huge selection of local beer, and luckily for us, seating outside for Tigli. (That was always a challenge on this trip, as leaving her in the RV for any length of time wouldn’t be right to her, but also not right to close neighbors if she decided to get into a barking loop.) Woodstock is a bit of a drive from the Lake Sunapee region, but I’m sure I’ll be back at some point. Great place.
That’s it for the trip east, but I’ll post about our next campground soon in Newport, NH. We stayed there for a quite a while, but I’m not considering it part of the trip, per se. Definitely some great photos to share form there, though!
