    22 Open sites, not counting the non electric sites ..
    Big question is whether Mel or Wrench have their trailers out of storage by then...

    As much as we would love to join you guys I do not think we will be able to make an appearance this year :( it would be too far just for a visit.
    Also the sites in the 130's are much bigger and flatter than the area you booked in...... Some of those sites are quite uneven ;)

    Thanks, but very unlikely that we would go. Thats our anniversary weekend, so my Mom always wants us to be at her place along with my sister and B-I-L. Thats our first weekend of ATVing and swatting blackflies for the summer. Probably can't drive across the back yard to get the Pup out of the shop without getting stuck in the lawn. Need anymore excuses? Too cold, gotta swap out my Mom's snow tires, I'm too tired, I've gotta work overtime that weekend. Having said that, we might be able to go camping :)

    How disappointing. I was excited at the possibility of it being in the 1000 Islands area. [V]

    I believe the North Campground is actually still closed May long weekend..

    Was considering having it close to the Thousand Island area, but due to possibly moving (hoping to list the house in March/April) had to keep the Kick off somewhat close to home.

    I didn't realize the whole top half of the park was closed until a certain date. Wonder if they will still have the comfort stations with showers open...hmmm

    Good question, Mel!
    I have just now sent an email to the Ontario Parks Office in Peterborough to see if they can tell us. Will post reply when (if? o_O ) they respond.
