  2. Rich Hoffpauer

    6 out of 10 correct.

  3. Thomas W. Pittman

    i got 7 of the 10–i feel pretty dumb as i live in Alabama & have been to Grants tomb–haven’t been to Branson so i don’t feel too bad about that one–still 70% for a 77 year old guy is not bad–we lived five years as full-timers in our Motorhome & traveled most of the good old USA–
    Keep the peace–

  4. Don Gibson

    Ok I missed 1 but I did get nine correct ~~~ Time to hit the road again!

  5. Gary Merklein

    I missed 2, but had a couple of lucky guesses. Looking forward to seeing some of these places.

  6. CamperJohn

    Time to hit the road again, this time off of the eastern states.

  7. C. H. Collins,11

    I got THREE correct,and all of them were guesses. It look like THE BRUISER is do for a spin outside of the State of Texas.
    God Bless You all, and we will,
    SEE YOU ON THE ROAD!!!!

  8. desertratdan

    I’m a westerner so, natch, I got the west ones right. I don’t plan on going east but southeast would do, as long as I could leave my left turn signal on forever!

  9. Lynda Begg

    Wow, as a Canadian West Coast only (so far) traveller, I surprised myself to get 5 out of 10. I will be doing more travelling soon as we retire, so look out for a 10 out of 10 then!

  10. Judy

    I didn’t do so good. Only got three correct. Time to hit the road I guess.

  11. maryearlene

    5 correct 50% Not bad for a Newbee who has never visited any of them !!

  12. Ray from Nevada

    Got six! Wow, and I live near Tahoe, never been to Crater lake yet! Guess its time to service the old Duramax, hook-up the fiver and get on the road!

  13. Wow! You guys are very good and, I must say, very honest. Don Gibson is a whiz. 9 out of 10 is excellent. These are not that easy, even if you have been there.
    Lori Sherman, Rich Hoffpauer, CamperJohn, C. H. Collins, desertratdan (And he has a great sense of humor), Lynda Begg, Judy and maryearlene are pretty smart and are certainly honest.
    Gary Merklein is an up and comer with an 80% score. So far he is second only to Don for this month’s bragging rights. GREAT GOING to all of you.
    Now let’s see some more.

  14. Ray, Great score on this one. The average of those that gave their specific score is 6.2, or 62%.

    So………..Many of you did better than you think.

  15. Art

    Good one Peter!!!

    A group effort, four RV’ers……………6 out of 10

  16. Art, Thanks. Well the four of you did well, staying with what scores an average mark.. Were adult beaverages involved?

  17. Lisa T

    I got 6 right / 4 wrong…. mostly missed the ones back east. I’m surprised I did that well!!

  18. Lisa T, 6 is an average score for this one, so pat yourself on the back. Even though it appears that 6 is average, so far, I’m surprised as it is not real easy. Good going and thank you and all, for posting your scores.

    So………..LET’S HEAR FROM MORE!!!!

    Also, don”t miss the next RV Mystry Camper on October 1st. and The RV Trivia Challenge 7 on October 22nd.

  19. larry9824

    8 RIGHT 2 WRONG
    Missed the first two.

  20. larry9824, Great 80%. You can join the people that scored above average on this one Thanks for posting your score.

  21. Dennis

    Only got 6 right and two were guesses….ugh !

  22. Linda

    I got 5 right, I’m a lucky guesser. I just hope before I quit traveling I see them all.

  23. Joe

    Got six, including a couple of lucky guesses. We are going to have to try that Alabama park the next time we are down that way.

  24. Dennis, You pulled an average score, no need for “ugh!” Guess’s count too. Thanks for your input.

  25. Linda, If you knew none of the answers and had to guess them all, you had better go out and buy a Powerbal because you are very lucky.l The law of averages would have scored a 2 only if that were the case. Thanks for sharing your score.

  26. Joe, You got an average score too, nothing wrong with that. Hope you do check out the Alabama park out, and thanks for your participation.

  27. Kathy Payne

    5 right, 50% not to bad for this ole gal.

  28. Barbara Kirkhart Palmer

    8 right – missed the first 2; good quiz!

  29. Kathy Payne, 50% is not bad. You would have to be somewhat knowledgable to get that score as averagely, you would only score 2 if you guess at them all. Thanks for posting your score.

  30. Barbara Kirkhart, Great score! Thanks for sharing that with us.

  31. Drifter

    Just curious as to why the El Dorado State Park in Kansas with 1100 campsites and 4000 acres was not considered as an answer

  32. Drifter, A very good point. However, the key word here was “Campground”. El Dorado’s 1100 sites are made up of four separate campgrounds, not one, as Wind Creek is. But that was a great question, and if wording translation was skewed, it may well be the correct answer. Thank you for the challenge and a great question. Your participation is very much appreciated and enjoyed.

  33. Hi–Got 8 right–haven’t been to most of these places, but I read a LOT! Thanks for a fun quiz.

  34. Kay Thomas, 8 is a great score considering you have never visited any of these. Glad you enjoyed it, and thank you for both your comment and posting your score.
