RV Resort at Carolina Crossroads, Roanoke Rapids, NC

Date of Stay:  Friday May 1 –Saturday May 23, 2015

Rate:  $550/month

Website:  RV Resort at Carolina Crossroads
   415 Wallace Fork Road
   Roanoke Rapids, NC 27870

Description:  Reviewed several times in the past.  We stayed on our usual site (P8).  I’m glad we made reservations a few days ahead because this place has been packed just about every night.  Several more sites are now set aside for long term occupants who work temporarily in the area.  They are kept clean but it does feel different here since it’s crowded even during the day.

Activities:  This was a relaxing few weeks visiting with family.  We took Gin’s mom to the outlets in Smithfield one day and we dropped in to visit with our one-time neighbor Kelly who works at the Chamber of Commerce building there.  It was nice to catch up with her.  My mom is doing pretty darn good at the age of 87.  I hope I have her longevity genes.  Our neighbors from Cedar Key (Dave and Julie) live in Bracey, Va. came by for a nice visit one day.
