Staying at Meade City Park

We boondocked at Meade City Park for two days. The park has several gravel spots for RVs, with picnic tables and water spigots. The park was originally created for travelers in the 20's when Highway 54 opened. The park is charming, with large trees and several WPA-era buildings and structures. The town's pool is also located at this park. 

Digression: Meade is named after General Meade, who won the Battle of Gettysburg. Meade was also an engineer, and built several lighthouses!

Address: Off of Highway 54 - eastern side of Meade

Dog Friendly: There is no designated areas for dogs at this park, but there are plenty of places to walk.
Motorcycle Friendly: This park's roads are either gravel or paved, and well maintained. The town, on the other hand, believes in the 'slush and pray' method. There isn't, however, quite enough traffic to actually compress the slush into an adequate road surface.  We would definitely urge caution while driving in Meade!

Cell Service/Wifi: Verizon was 3-4 bars, without a booster.
Amenities: The park has bathrooms, and numerous water spigots. There are no electrical hook ups, but both pavilions do have 110 outlets.  There is also a dump station just past the city pool, at the far end of the park.

Getting There: The park is directly off of I-54.

Local Stuff: The park is less than a mile from the Dalton Gang Hideout and the Meade Historical Museum.  If you need groceries, there is a Walmart about thirty minutes away.
