Seems the KARS website is sooooo out of date, the person I've been trying to contact for *reservations* doesn't even work there anymore. Funny - her voice mail does not redirect. Anyway, the Country Store personnel answered some questions:
1. How many guests and/or rigs are allowed per member?
Seems that the 10 to 1 is a rule - but is not really enforced. Suposedly, I can bring in any number of guests/rigs until there is no space.
NOTICE: With annual membership, you receive a Guest Member card that allows the guest member same privileges as primary member. I'd be willing to offer up this Guest Membership to someone who would like to assist in the gathering and is interested in using the park throughout the year. I usually give this card to my dad but he didn't use it much last year - and it was always with me anyway.
Now, if it is abused, I will remove the axles from your Airstream ...or worse!
2. How much space is available?
Jan & Feb is their busiest season. Suggested a few folks arrive on Thursday or Friday morning to save some spots - by establishing a group setting. You know, a few of us to set up and be annoying enough to discourage anyone else from coming too near. I'm not certain I can pull off Thursday - but maybe the consummate Guest Member could?
3. What info on guests is needed in advance?
None. Everyone must check in at the Country Store individually. If you arrive after hours, you'll need to call me for entry (to get the gate pass code) and then register at the Store in the morning. I'll PM you all my cell later for this issue!
4. Who can become a member?
Anyone with a KSC or Military badge. Essentially, anyone who has a badge that will give them access to the Patrick Air Force Base.
5. What is the cost for RV camping (all have power/water - no sewer - but dump station)?
Riverfront, Guest $25/Member $20. Other sites Guest $20/Member $15. Only 7 riverfront sites open - 13 of them are under repair.
6. Are grills available?
Large cookers (grill/smokers) are $5.00/day.
7. Are fires allowed?
Yes, and I will have one going. So, any who were part of the "I Hate Campfires" thread - here's your fair warning
8. Are pets allowed? Yes - leash and clean-up rules apply. Another warning - I'll have my greyhound and whippet with me.
I'm working on my attendee list!
