    The park physically opens in March for limited weekend camping, but that's separate from the reservation system. Theoretically, the reservation system should be working now, especially considering the huge taxes we pay in Montgomery County! Keep checking....

    Still can not make reservations from their website. I emailed them at littlebennetcampground@montgomeryparks.org

    Jacob replied & said that he did not know what was wrong with the website, but they take reservations all year. I sent him my site preference, arrival & departure dates, name, address & phone #. Also need birthday to confirm age over 21.

    He called me back to get my credit card info. He emailed a confirmation while I was still on the phone with him. I am on site D52. Site D50 is already taken. As of 2 PM today all the other sites in Loop D are available.

    Grandpa Hiker - can you double check that email address
    I tried to send an email and it bounced back as deliverable.

    I am in the midst of corresponding with the campground to reserve my site - they are telling me the web site is having problems, and it is still down. The email address that Grandpa Hiker provided is working to contact them to make the reservation - so if you want to reserve a site now, that is the way to go.

    ok - I have site 53. Coming in on Thursday.
    To make reservations - email
    littlebennettcampground@montgomeryparks.org

    In talking to Jacob at the campground - they are going to be starting some renovations to Loop D and that is why the online reservations are locked out. They should be done before June. (they are adding sewer hookup to these sites which by reserving now we get the lower rates before they charge more for the sewer hookup) -

    I had every intention of joining the rally again this year. Unfortunately, it conflicts with another commitment. I promised some former students that I would attend their Gr 8 grad.
    I really should stop following this thread.
    sigh....:(

    I’m disappointed as well. Unfortunately, that weekend just doesn’t work for me. It was great when the Maryland Rally was two weeks earlier, then I could go to Mike’s NEPA rally on my return trip home and make it back in time for a Grad.
    ....you listening, Andrew? :rolleyes: ....or do you have NASCAR races dancing in your head? ;)

    Have fun! I will miss you all!:(
