We are staying at a town park. Really nice park 60 or 70 sites, few seasonal residents. Park is well kept and very clean. The unfortunate part? Railroad
on one side, freeway on the other. Have to run the fan for white noise.

Not to be a smart ass, but that is why they put wheels on these things.

and your point is???????

You know, without listing the park for others to decide if they would stay there, your post is pretty much useless.

We use the TT to go see stuff that we can't see at home. We don't have trains so near the track is just as interesting as staying on the strip or by the airport. It's all stuff to see and then you move on.

You should post the name and location of the unfortunate campground.
A few days ago there was a member looking for a CG where they could view trains.
What you consider 'unfortunate', may be a plus for others.
Please share.

when I first started RVing, I was under the impression that one requirement for having a campground was to locate it near rail road tracks.

Very true. We recently stayed at a county park, it had a train track running by it. But ... I knew about it before making reservations. A little planning can help picking out a suitable location.

You mean it is not? For some reason, a very high majority of campgrounds are near tracks. Guess it is cheap real estate. It may not be evident when checking in, but trains are always around. You think you found one that is "train Free"...but then you hear the train. It always happens. You cannot get away from them. The best you can hope for is that you are not near a major intersection or crossing. But at night you can hear train horns from 30 miles away.

You gotta, learn to sleep with ear plugs.

Thats about right. Now, if it is next to a busy highway that makes it a prime location for a KOA.

How much was this town park? If it was cheap then there is not much room to complain about the noise.
