    I noticed the announcement of the Rough River Fly-In and looked up the AirNav for 2I3. It looks like a really cool setup. I'm going to try to make it out there, but it's too early to say for sure.

    But my question is, what other parks have airstrips (especially around the Southeast) that would be worth checking out?

    If you can land on it, it’s a landing strip.

    You’d be surprised at how few laws there are about landing off “airport”.

    We had a cool strip in the park at Lake Whitney, TX, but the state closed it. It was fun to fly in and have a short walk to the lake.

    First flight airport is a pilgrimage I intend to make this summer. I am currently prepping for my PPL, and I want to get my commercial before the end of the year. The Outer Banks, NC was one of the first hypothetical XCs I planned.

    I've always wanted to fly up to Monument Valley. Not the Southeast but pretty cool.
