Four of us who are in Moab this week signed up this morning at the Portal RV Resort for a 2011 RV Forum rally with arrival on May 8 and departure on May 15, 2011 (seven nights). In past years many of us have arrived early and stayed late, but because the FMCA 4WD chapter has the entire park for the first week of May, early arrivals will not be possible. Each person needs to call Portal to make their own arrangements. Portal's cancellation policies say that individuals can cancel up to 48 hours in advance of arrival without incurring charges for the entire time as is the case with group reservations and group discounts. It is for this reason that we are not set up with Portal as a group known as the RV Forum, so please don't say you are with the RV Forum – just make your personal reservation.
The information you need is:
Portal RV Resort
1261 N. Hwy. 191
Moab, UT 84532
As of this morning (Saturday, May 15, 2010) the number of available sites for May 8-15, 2011 in each of the three sections (shown in the attached photo) is as follows:
New section, Premium sites: 19
Old section sites 1-25, full hookup 50 amp sites: 11
Old section sites 26-36, water & electric, no sewer, 30 amp sites: 11
Please post in this thread when you make a reservation so that we all will know who is attending. The first names on the rally attendee list are:
FitzGerald (Ardra & Jerry), site M-20
Kuch (Ken & Sheila, site M-19
Sherow (Debby & Randy), site R-54
Weimert (Barb & Frank), site M-21
Attached is a site map of the Portal RV Resort. For your GPS this is the Lat & Long of the Portal RV Resort itself and your GPS will turn you right into the property. N38 35.367 W109 34.130 Elevation 3,926 feet
All $40 premium sites (see attached photo) are M-13 to M-34 and R-45 to R-71 and have good satellite access no matter whether your dish is a front, middle, or rear mounted one except for R-56, 57, and 58 which require a rear mounted dish. These sites have very wide and very long cement slabs (full hookups with 50 amps) with swimming pool and sauna access.
All $35 sites 1-25 (good gravel and full hookups with 50 amps) have good satellite access (front, middle or rear mount) except 21 and 22 which require a rear mounted dish. No pool or sauna access.
All $30 sites 26-36 (good gravel, water, 30 amp, and NO sewer) have good satellite access. No pool or sauna access.
By the way, they will not absolutely guarantee a site until the date gets closer because they do have to move folks around to fit everybody in. This is not new; it has always been their policy. You can ask for a specific site by number when you make your reservation.
Remember this is NOT a group event. Everybody must make their reservation in their own name and do not mention the RV Forum. The reason for this is that you as an individual can cancel up to 48 hours before your arrival and get a refund but if you are in a group reservation with a group discount you cannot cancel and get a refund.
