States listed include Florida, North Carolina, and Texas. So where to stay, what to see and what not to miss are the next big questions.
Both Florida and North Carolina are home to three TT resorts while Texas offers seven choices.
Florida – Our three Florida locations, Three Flags, Orlando and Peace River are so centrally located that you can pick and choose what way you want to spend your days. Take in Disney, Sea World or Busch Gardens, take a day trip to the beaches of Florida’s coast, or just relax resort-side and enjoy the weather.
North Carolina – The “Old North State” has three choices. Forest Lake, set among the rolling hills of the Piedmont Region, offers an on-site lake and proximity to historic Winston-Salem. Green Mountain Park sits at the edge of the beautiful Blue Ridge Mountains and offers visitors the opportunity to explore quaint towns, hundreds of miles of back roads and a mountain cave or two. Lake Gaston, just outside Raleigh, offers over a mile of lakefront to enjoy world-class fishing, swimming and boating fun.
Texas – This BIG state means lots of choices. If you’re looking for a historical slant for your trip, consider either Medina Lake, which is just 40 minutes from The Alamo, the Shrine of Texas in San Antonio, or the Colorado River Preserve, which is a little over an hour from the Star of the Republic Museum, where 59 elected delegates gathered on March 2, 1836 to declare Texas’ independence from Mexico.
If it’s water fun you’re looking for, the shores of Lake Bridgeport beckon with a stay at Bay Landing Preserve, with lakefront sites and cabins. Or any one of the “Lake” campgrounds – Lake Conroe Preserve, with its convenient access to the 22,000-acre lake, Lake Tawakoni, with its six miles of shoreline, Lake Texoma, a fisherman’s paradise, or Lake Whitney, with its crystal clear waters and nearby equestrian trails.
Please note that Kentucky’s Diamond Caverns campground has been moved from the Southeast Zone to the Midwest and our campgrounds in Illinois, Indiana and Michigan have moved from the Northeast to the Midwest. Southeast Zone Pass holders will still have access Diamond Caverns. Similarly, Northeast Zone Pass holders can continue to enjoy the campgrounds that have been moved to the Midwest Zone, which include Pine Country (IL), Horseshoe Lakes and Indian Lakes (IN), Bear Cave and St. Clair (MI) and Kenisee and Wilmington (OH).

Lake Conroe is hosting a Talent Show the weekend of May 18. The Texas preserve is having the show so that all members can show off their talents. So bring those instruments or your best voices and let’s see who has the most talent.
