If you’re a fifth wheel or travel trailer RV owner, there’s a good chance you will trek your way up to the RV Capitol of the World; Elkhart, Indiana for a rally or two. While you’re up there, we highly recommend a couple-day visit to explore nearby South Bend, Indiana!
“THIS is why we came to Theodore Roosevelt National Park!”, I thought to myself while quietly gazing through the windshield of our motorhome. Driving through the untouched vast terrains while witnessing many different geological wonders, roaming buffalo and other wildlife, I wondered why it took us so long to visit.
While exploring Theodore Roosevelt National Park in North Dakota, we camped at Cottonwood Campground inside the park. It’s located just five miles from the National Park’s South Unit park entrance. Our plans were originally to camp three nights. Due inclement weather, we ended up staying a few more days. But it was more than the cold rain that kept us there!
While we were enjoying an Xscapers event in Casa Grande, Arizona, we escaped for a day with a couple friends to visit Casa Grande National Monument in nearby Coolidge, Arizona.

We stayed here while visiting our son’s family near Shakopee. However, we must give you a heads up, our stay was not what we expected!
