Eclipse Trip Leg 12–Memphis to Crossville

We have reached the last leg of our three-week eclipse trip. From Memphis, we have about 760 miles to get back to Raleigh. We drove about 340 miles and stopped in Crossville, TN.

Where We Stayed

We stopped for the night at the Crossville/I-40 KOA. This might be the nicest KOA we’ve been to.

The campground is only about five miles off I-40, but it’s in a fairly rural area. The next-door neighbors are these beauties.

We usually stay at campgrounds that allow you to pick your own site, but this one assigns them. We lucked out and got a very nice site. It was paved and had a table and chairs. There was even a stone fireplace.

Our only complaint was it was very unlevel! We think it was as unlevel side-to-side as we’ve ever been.

The campground is spacious with some pretty nice views. You do get a little road noise toward the back of the campground because it’s closer to the highway, but we didn’t notice it at our site. There’s a fishing pond, a playground, and a pool.

They also have a few cabins and some sites for tent camping. Granted, we didn’t actually walk on them, but the tent camping area looked pretty unlevel. I’m not sure I’d try it.

The next morning we packed up and drove the remaining 420 to home.

In total, we drove 4,500 miles. Of those, 3,500 miles were towing. We camped 24 nights at 12 different campgrounds in nine different states.

Happy travels!
