Daredevils take delight in the competitive hill but remember there are other activities for you to enjoy when visiting Sand Mountain. Hiking is a great way to appreciate the landscape and transport yourself to a world unknown. Furthermore, don’t be discouraged if you're not interested in off-roading.

Most people enjoy camping at the base of the dune when camping at Sand Mountain recreation area. It is important to know that Sand Mountain doesn’t offer water, so be sure to stock up before you get there. The summer’s average temperature normally does not pass 80 degrees, but the surface temperature can soar, reaching temperatures over 100 degrees. For this reason, be sure to bring lots of water and food so you don’t have to end your trip early. Plus there are only a limited amount of toilets so bringing an RV or trailer when camping adds convenience when visiting this site.

After the summer fun is done and the last camping day of fall has passed, it’s time to start thinking about winterizing your RV. Winterizing your RV may seem like a daunting task. But at Louie’s Ace Home Center, we have everything you need to get the job done. If you are staying in your RV, you are going to want to keep your water lines functional. Be sure to wrap your lines with foil and open your faucets slightly if you are planning to stay in the RV. If you are storing it, follow these simple steps to winterize your RV.
To fully winterize your RV, be sure to remove any perishables, laundry, trash, and valuable items. Fix anything that is broken as it will make it easier to use the RV when its time. Cover all your vents and holes so pests don’t see your winterized RV as a place to get warm. Cover your RV with an RV cover, and don’t forget your tires, too. Some people lift their RVs to take the pressure off the tires as well.
