On our way north, we spent 2 nights in Woodbine, Maryland at a beautiful campground not far from our oldest son and his family. Ramblin’ Pines Campground had some great reviews on line and it is only 30 minutes from our son and daughter-in-love. We wanted to check it out as it would be a perfect location to spend a month in the summer and visit family (read: grandchild.) Here is what we found…
Located in a lovely, rural, woodsy 65 acre setting, Ramblin’ Pines Campground has spacious full hook up RV sites.
The entrance to the campground is gated.
There are so many free activities on this campground for kids and families.
We enjoyed walking the trails around Ramblin’ Pines and talking to the workers in the office and the maintenance guys. We will definitely be back and we can see that this campground could be our future home base in the spring through fall seasons.
The amenities here include a dog park, walking trails, mini golf, a swimming pool and GOATS! Ramblin’ Pines Campground also offers tent sites and cabins for rent.
We could definitely envision ourselves entertaining our granddaughter here. Did you hear what I said there?! Yes, we are welcoming a grand DAUGHTER in January.
Besides investigating this beautiful campground, we were able to spend some time with Tim and Dear. Dear cooked some great Thai food for us. We visited a local dairy farm where we enjoyed some homemade ice cream. We did a little shopping at our favorite store, Wegmans, and got to spend some time with our grandpuppies, Sam and Oakley.
On a side note: our Progressive Industries EMS (electrical management system) bit the dust. An EMS is like a BIG “surge protector” for our RV. It protects our home on wheels from faulty electrical connections at each site we plug into. Needless to say, it is vital to our safety and the safety of our rig.
Mark noticed that it was giving us strange codes when he tried to plug in at Ramblin Pines. After trouble-shooting and calling Progressive tech support it was determined that it required a warranty claim. Progressive products come with a lifetime warranty so they are shipping us a new one. In the meantime, we purchased a smaller “back up” Progressive EMS at camping world. It is really important to us to have that protection since this is our home.
We have had a chance to check out our new rear observation camera this trip also. The Furrion rear observation camera was recently purchased through Amazon as a replacement for a similar camera we had purchased in December 2017. Our old one had started showing vertical and horizontal white lines on the screen. We ordered the same brand this time as it is basically plug and play but added an extended warranty to this one just in case. We have been so pleased with the clarity of the picture and the overall quality improvements in this new camera. It is a huge safety feature when driving as it allows Mark to see clearly all traffic approaching from the sides and rear.
Next week, you will hear about our recent boondocking experience AND what we learned about Roadside Assistance. We hope someone learns from our experience … everyday is a chance to learn something new about this RV Life ; )
