Default Know any places to camp near a TRAIN Ride attraction?

I am looking for places to travel to that has a passenger railway. Obviously I don't want a commuter train or anything like that but more along the lines of the Smokey Mtn Railroad in Bryson City, NC.

Anyone know of a good place?

The south rim for the Grand Canyon I believe has a train stop at the campgrounds.

I might have mislead you there, I don't actually want to ride the train to a camp, but rather drive there in my motorhome and then ride the train for entertainment.

The grand canyon does sound like a nice place to visit, thanks.

Well I think from what other ppl have said is that the train takes you to the bottom of the canyon, Also now that Im thinking about it Williams Az has a train attraction also. If that is what your looking for.

My friend works on the Adirondack Scenic Railway,NY. Adirondack Scenic Railroad | Utica | Thendara | Saranac Lake | Lake Placid | New York | Polar Express | Foliage. A lot of campgrounds in the area.

Welcome This is along the Delaware River. Camping in Jersey or Penn.

@all- Wow, I didn't realize that there were so many. Thanks for all your suggestions, keep them coming if anyone knows of more. I'm bookmarking all of them.

@bob - mapped that one out last night, I can't wait to go. It appears there is a campground within just a few miles of it that is open until the end of November. Maybe we can fit that one in before Thanksgiving. - thanks

@dogbone- Thomas the Train was at the Bryson City, NC great smokey mtn railway when we were there earlier this year. It was a madhouse lol. My youngest is 10 so I think we are past that. I was just glad they were offering other excursions that day also. Thanks for all the great info.

Wow, I grew up in Utica NY and I not advise anyone camping in that area since the city has gotten pretty run down over the years, as far as the adirondack that place is really cool outdoors.

Bringing my brother in law camping for the first time, He been on the sick side but since he move in my home seems to be getting better. He has never done anything like it, he is a big kid at heart 64 and love kids and handing out candy at Halloween Heck he even wants to dress up. Jellystone campground in Cosby TN One of the best for Halloween fun even for grown ups heck you even dress up you campers to join in on the fun and can be judged and win a prize. Best of all meet my grandkids and see them all dressed up really cool for sure. By the way HAPPY HALLOWEEN TO ALL.

Grand Canyon Railway RV Park northern Arizona is the best desired place for you. If during your RV camping you have faced RV Roof leakage then Liquid Rubber Roof Coatings is the best choice for repairing RV Roof leaks instantly. Hope it will help all RV campers. Thanks
