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.

The majority of those folks will be checking out Jan 1 or 2. Sites will be opening up. The park folks don't control the reservations and do not ever block sites for groups. Reserve America is the only way to get a reservation and it is one site at the time.
Sit tight. This will open up. RA is showing 51 sites open from Dec 29 for 10 nights.

Initially it just seemed odd that all those sites were open on the 27th and booked on the 29th and then a couple opened up on the 30th. I guess the other group all booked as soon as the window opened for the 29th or the 30th and a few had to change their plans a day or two after booking.

As Joe says, there are still plenty sites available for New Years Eve and the rally, just not in the 103 loop, and when the window opens for after New Years there should be plenty sites in the 103 for the rally.

There wasn't a group - just SOBs for NYE. They are checking out Jan 1 - 3. As of right now, there are 8 sites currently open in loop 103. 5 more open tomorrow. 4 the next day. Rather than the "Campsite List" that Reserve America normally shows, click on "Date Range Availability" to see which days each site is booked for. Reservations start each day at 7am central or 8am eastern. The sites that open up in loop 103 will go fast.

Speaking of groups. There are 22 RSVPs for the Canopener but seeing the Date Range Availability it looks like closer to 50 reservations have been made on Reserve America through the Canopener weekend.
