Sites Going Fast

A check of the Reserve America website this afternoon indicates sites are going fast. Much of the 103 Loop is booked from before New Year's through the rally dates the following weekend. I wasn't able to get the site I've had the last 6 years. Here's a link to Reserve America if you want to make a reservation:

Reserve America Campground Reservations Link

A map update appears below. Clearly not all of the reservations have been posted on the rally RSVP page. Below is a map showing the RSVP status as of 1:50 pm today. If you have a reservation please use the RSVP link below to register with the rally so I can get you on the map.

Perhaps I'm missing something, but it appears the only way to book right now is to book a date prior to the 29th of December and then extend it into 2018, as to try to book the actual dates of the event results in a message that it is outside the current booking window. Is this how folks are working around the limited booking dates?

We were there last year before New Years. We did a New Years Eve progressive dinner which was a blast. There were about 40 other rigs there. It's probably catching on. There was also a big group of SOBs there so there could also be bunch of them as well.

Yes, that is how it works. Your starting reservation date cannot be more than 11 months in advance.

Exactly Rick. The New Years Eve party not with the Canopener has a lot of sites booked that weekend but will bail out and be gone Jan 1 or 2. Then most sites will open up for Canopenians. Be patient but ready to book Feb 1 or 2.
Good luck everybody. We are in the same boat.

Fear not folks there will be plenty of spots available. Airstreamers and SOBs will be cancelling right up to the start of the rally. Walking around during the last rally I spied at least a dozen empty spots that were never occupied.

We have slightly revised our plan. It will probably change between now and then but the current plan is to leave Melbourne 12/28 for Sumter Oaks. I will make a weighing reservation for 12/29. After that is done we will head for Stephen Foster in White Springs and drive to Topsail on 12/30.

We are booked for Site 123 from 12/30 through 1/7. Plans after that are not firm but may include St. Josephs Peninsula, Oleno State Park, and Hillsboro River State Park.

Hi folks!
Judy and I will once again be on site 53. We missed Canopener this year but will try again for 2018! Canopener is always the first reservation for the winter planning. Not sure where we will be going but we want to be at Topsail for News Years Eve. See you all there!
Pete

Just booked site 75! Last years site (78) was booked yesterday. ! Are we being over run by SOB's or are the streamers not RSVPing? If anyone looks at the reserve America site, you will be shocked! Loop 103 is booked, as of today. Very few sites left, don't procrastinate!
Love to all
Billy and Karen

I would like to correct my previous post. Noggin is correct, there will be some sites opening up tomorrow and later dates. I would check daily for new openings. By the way the reserve America site will not allow reservations before 8:00am est. as I found out this morning.
Sorry for the confusion!
Love to all
Billy

Something weird is going on. We had that site this year and wanted it next year. When I looked on the 27th it was available, as were most of the sites in the 103 loop. Just after midnight on the 30th when I tried, all but one site in the 103 loop were booked. Later in the morning of the 30th, that site and 123 showed as available. We got 123 so it's all good, but it's almost like the NYE SOBers are somehow booking a block of sites and then releasing them when people don't sign up.

Perhaps someone with a good relationship with the park (Joe, Annette?) could call and investigate.
