I have not been able to get through to them this morning, they may be busy with folks leaving on Sunday. Curious what their cancelation policy is, and what deposit they require.

They will take one night's stay as a deposit, $30 in our case.

Gary, I tried about four or five times and they never answered the telephone.  I finally left a message and they called back about an hour later.  As Ned said, the deposit is for the first night  @ $30.00.  Their cancellation policy, as per what was on our confirmation, is three days prior to arrival to get a full refund.

Hope you guys are able to make it, sounds like fun.

I had them resend the confirmation.  We're in site RV25.

Our confirmation shows departure on April 23, shouldn't that be April 24?  What do the others show?

We don't need anyone's RV site, but appreciate those posting them as it gives
everyone an idea who their neighbor will be.  But of course with this group, anyone
would likely be a good neighbor. . . .

We would have had to leave on Saturday anyways to get back.  I didn't realize it was thru the 23rd until I made the reservations.  That at least made the wife happy that we weren't going to miss any of the actual rally.  She was a bit sad when I told her we would have to leave on Saturday in order to get back home.

It occurs to me that the park is interpreting our dates as a 6 night stay.
I am going to call tomorrow and change my reservation to a 4/24 departure
on Sunday, staying 7 nights. . .

Gary & Larry,

Corinne and I are signed up for site RV 46.

Like Steve our work won't be over till April 15th.  Since it's only a 16 hour drive, we may be able to make it in two days.  However, if we get a late start on Saturday we might not arrive till Monday.

There is no map on the web site.  Just call and make your reservation, mentioning the RV Forum rally, and a PDF map of the campground will be attached to your confirmation email.

Someone has to keep him in line!. Have you got ahold of the park yet?

Family visit possibly getting in the way.  Then there's the question of whether or not we will have a motorhome.  How many bedrooms does your Tiffin have?   ;)
