Processed pig bits, Civil War sadness and meeting the Amish

North Fork, Big Bend, Tygart Lake, Cowans Gap, Ohiopyle -- to most foreign travellers in the US, these names mean very little as they hop from New York to San Francisco, perhaps visiting an 'out of the way' destination such as New Orleans, Chicago or Austin. But to us these tongue-curling names signify the series of beautiful state parks maintained with a German-like attention to detail where we park the RockVan most nights. When we need to stay closer to medium-sized towns, we rely on the private RV parks, which have the bonus of 'free' wifi, but their fees are usually higher. Average fees in the state parks are around $30-40 per night for electricity and water hookup, whereas the private parks tend more towards $50-60 per night.
