    Being a profound introvert but also enthusiastic camper, I am on the edge of registering for this! The sites are already filling up. How can I get to know everyone a little better so I don't feel so awkward? lol

    The best way is to make your reservations and join in the fun. We will not be making the trip to this rally,
    but will be there for the week of Thanksgiving. Jump on in, trust me, rallys are a great
    way to meet a great bunch of friendly campers. I know that you will enjoy it.

    Just completed my reservation for Dec. 14th and 15th. Site #36. Should be a lot of fun! I was actually there this past weekend and stayed on the beach. Had a great time.

    You should give it a shot and join the fun. You are near the beach and can tour the fort and have a great time meeting new people.

    JAXPOPPER - We're looking forward to meeting you! I’m glad that you made a reservation; I thought we’d be camping alone.

    Jessica Hunt - I’ve been trying to come up with an answer for you, but others have stated well — just go for it. We attended our first rally in Fall 2015, and we didn’t know anybody before then. We met some very nice people, and we looked forward to our next rally (Spring 2017). We hope you can make it in December.

    Well think of it this way....your normally around other campers and have no clue about them,
    This trip you can realize that theres a few you already have common grounds with...

    I'm also very much an introvert. In my case, DH's overly friendly nature helps me a lot. I have never actually been to a rally, but you can certainly choose your amount of participation. You can still do your own thing as much as you like.

    I, too, have been on the fence about registering. Not for the same reasons, but because I'm not 100% sure I can make it and don't want to make this the second rally that I'm a no-show on. LOL

    The sites will all fill up with snowbirds soon. Keep in mind that the tent sites also have electric and water and will accommodate a pop up at this park. They are marked as tent sites only due to low hanging trees that will not allow for tall TTs. We camp in #37 regularly in our pop up, it's our favorite site next, after 40-46, which are always reserved early.

    EDIT: I'm only talking about the tent site in the River Loop. The ones up by the beach loop are tent only and totally yuk.

    This is our favorite state park/campground in a lifetime of camping in many states. We camp there often, and you are correct, it fills up fast. I am honestly very surprised there is still availability for December. Usually it's filled with Canadian snow birds in the winter months. Maybe they don't come down until after Christmas? Not sure we have ever went in December before.

    We will be there for a week next month. I love, love, love everything about this place. It's at the beach where we find lots of sharks teeth for our collection. There are often dolphin playing at the river around sunset. The Fort itself is extremely interesting to tour.
