We made our reservations a week ago, I think it was $45 a night. We are coming down on Thursday afternoon, have no idea what site or if it is a premium or what. Hope they put us together. The North part would be ok with us, whatever is decided. Jim is going to call today and find out where they might have put us.

Unfortunately with the new First Come first Serve policy, they cannot guarantee us all being together. I do believe that being at the North location offers a much better chance of being together as it is smaller, and away from the activities. I am working Thursday (In Branson), and then running home to Ozark to grab the trailer and head back. Depending on how many cases we have, I could be there around 1 pm or at 5 pm.

I am trying to reach the park regarding total numbers, but I have not had 2 calls returned. I am going to call again shortly as it is the weekend.

Steve, we are going to be there very late Thursday night and will have to make do what they give us, do you think there is any way to put in a word with the camp office that we are near everyone in our group? Just because we won't be able to see them as we arrive after hours. Although I guess I could call them...

I would think since your hosting a rally, they could group you together. I know when they had the rally in Oklahoma they didn't reserve spots but they made an exception for us and put us all together. This is one of the reasons we left Branson. Also the change in scenery was nice. I wish we were able to make it.

That is a very high rate for rally spots - especially if they won't even cooperate in grouping us together! If we are able to come, we may stay most of the time at Mill Creek or one of the other Tablerock sites. It is absolutely beautiful at Mill Creek and cost us around $10 per night because we have the pass. It's inexpensive even without and has water & electric and a dump site.
I love Compton's, but $45 per night is higher than we have ever paid except at the beach in Los Angeles. I don't even think we paid that much at Liberty, across the river from NYC with a view of the Statue of Liberty and the skyline.
We also stayed in downtown Branson at the city's RV park quite reasonably and it was near the mall, Bass Pro Shop, and everything.
Compton's is pricing themselves out of our market!
Even Silver Dollar City's excellent Wilderness park RV spaces probably aren't that expensive.
Not your fault at all, Steve. I'm sure not criticizing you. I know it's very hard to host these things! And you're our founder!
I liked Acorn Acres the best but don't know how the new owners would be to work with? Maybe we should check with them about "coming home" in the spring??
Just my 2-cents worth!

Of course, they ARE across the road from Billy Gail's, so they get credit for that! ;-)

What you have to understand is that the rates are inflated due to the park's special events during witchy weekend. When we originally booked, I was told the event was not during that weekend, but it changed a month later. Then we were given the rate of $35 if we had 20 trailers even though they have never given a discount on that special event weekend.

In all honesty, I woukd gkadly relocate the entire rally to Acorn acres in a moment if I knew they had room for all of us. Perhaps someone can call and ask if they have 16 spots as I am in surgery while I type this.

Let's get some input! What about those who reserved? Could they get a refund?
They're in the same area, for those who don't know. And Acorn Acres is really, really nice and in the past has provided us with a free screened pavilion & kitchen.
I will be glad to call, Steve, and post whatever I find out.

The last time we did Acorn Acres in the fall I think we had 22 trailers! It is under new ownership.

so I just happen to be given a break right after writing that. I went ahead and called a corn acres to find out what their availability was for the weekend. The person at the desk told me that they do have spots available, but it depends on how large of a trailer everyone has. They had maybe 5 spots that woukd accommodate large trailers. I didnt ask specific lengths of what large woukd be considered. Im thinking box trailers get to be very long.

The biggest issue of changing at this point is that some people who aren't very active on airforums may not see the change. I can say that I won't go back to Compton during a special weekend again due ro all this extra stuff going on with discounts, not reserving siyes, etc.

Ok, spoke with owner of Acorn acres and with Compton. Acorn is looking at available sites for us right now and they have a meeting room. He will get back with availability and prices. Compton doesn't look like they are willing to go past the 10% discount that they already offered. Can I get sime opinions on how people would feel about moving parks and saving quite a bit of money? This is assuming that people are not interested in attending the witchy weekend events at compton ridge.

Alright...I hate multiple postings like this, but here's what I found out. after speaking with the owner, we are offered to move the rally to his location. He has plenty of open space and the rate would be either $40 or $42 per night, but he would offer 20% off that rate ($8 essentially). He would also give us the indoor meeting hall for free for Friday and Saturday. The only catch is that we would be spread through the park. The park is small however. That's where we are. Stay or go, it doesnt matter to me. I just want to have some airstream fun in 2 weeks

We are going to be at Compton Ridge for a vintage trailer rally this weekend, so a move to Acorn Acres for the Air Midwest rally would be just fine with us. Back to back weekends at the same park would be, well, redundant. The lower price doesn't hurt, either. I vote "Move"...
