    Thanks to everyone for a refreshing weekend. The food, fellowship and laughter made for an all around good time. Nice to meet new folk and see people from rallies past.

    Sounds good. FYI, I think Little Bennett is a county Park, not a state park, so the reservation system would be different.
    I have heard nice things about it but have not had the chance to camp there yet.

    Looks like a nice park. With things for the kids or kids at heart. Not to mention hiking trails. I'm curious to see how the campground looks.

    Little Bennett is a very nice park. We've been several times. There is only one loop for trailers, the rest are for tents only. This park is one of the cleanest parks in Maryland. Reservations are made through Montgomery County. http://www.montgomeryparks.org/

    Nearby are a golf course and a water park. There are many nice trails.

    Their website states you need to be a county resident. That does not apply to the campground. It's best to call to reserve because their online reservation system can be a bit wonky. I don't know if they've fixed it, but in the past, if you reserved online, you had to reserve each night as an individual item. Make sure you have all your nights for your site in your cart before you confirm/pay. It's weird.

    Do not go in October when the stink bugs are trying to find a winter home unless you want thousands invading your camper. That was a nightmare weekend. :eek:

    I live in Mo Co, about ten miles from Little Bennett. If we should decide to go there, I'd be more than happy to drive over and reserve, say, five spots for which folks could reimburse me. That way, we could circumvent that horrible reservation system. I don't know if being a resident would get a discount, but I can see. If I do it soon, we might be able to get the choicest sites.

    And I hope to have a popup by then! Saving my pennies.

    I went to the site. I didn't actually try to book, but it seems that the multi-night booking issue has been fixed. I was able to add a multi-day reservation to my cart for next June.

    Andrew: I recall a discussion re changing the weekend for next year's rally. Have you decided on the dates yet?

    Love it! :p
    I'm arrived home from the CT Rally yesterday and am catching up on my planning.

    No rush on this end...just booked NEPA 2018, and wanted to see how this would line up with the PA dates.

    FYI: I heard that homemade donuts are great for the brain![LOL]
