2019 is right around the corner and we're willing to bet that many of you are thinking about putting together a list of New Year's resolutions to tackle. These always begin with good intentions but are often tough to complete.  To help you out, The Cottonwood Cove has come up with 5 tasks to attempt in the coming year that are fun and exciting enough to actually enjoy doing. Best of all, they can all be accomplished right here at our vacation destination in the Midwest !  Travel More Life is a lot more exciting when you can get away from your regular day-to-day and experience something new. Living the RV life allows you the opportunity to do that with very little notice.

Are You Ready? It's Almost Halfway to T&A at The Cottonwood Cove!

The Cottonwood Cove wanted to make sure that all of the Missouri River boaters out there are aware that we're almost to the halfway point of the biggest sandbar party of the summer, meaning it's just about time for the 3rd Annual Halfway to T&A Party ! We are thrilled that the Lodge at our  RV Campground & Marina on the Missouri River has been chosen as the location for this great big, incredible, mid-winter party.  The excuse for such an exciting event (as if one is really needed) is the celebration of the fact that we're already halfway to the biggest annual summer party on the Missouri River - The T&A Party! (Get your mind out of the gutter. If you aren't already familiar, we'll explain the tame meaning of that below.)

Right Now is a Wonderful Time to Reserve Your RV Lot

Although winter will be here soon and The Cottonwood Cove is currently in our "off-season," that doesn't mean that you have to wait until next spring to reserve your lot at our Midwest RV campground on the Missouri River . On the contrary, now is a wonderful time to get your spot reserved and lock in all of the incredible amenities that come along with being a part of the Cottonwood family.   New RV Lots for 2019 We know, we know... over and over again we said that the RV lots added for 2018 would be your " last chance until 2020 " due to all of the other plans we have in mind. Well, the demand was so great, we simply couldn't resist changing our plans and making arrangements to add more lots for the coming 2019 season!  This is one time that we don't mind admitting we were wrong because we've figured out a way to allow more happy campers to join our big Cottonwood family and still take care of those other plans we have in store for everyone.
