    Wow, this is the closet possible rally for me! Arrowhead is only 25km (15.53mi for my American Camping Family, if you happen to stumble upon this thread ;)). It’s also my last camping trip of the season, so it’s fitting that it’s also the closest to home. I can spend the 17min travel time reminiscing on my drives to the Schodack ‘Not A Rally’, NEPA, CT, Maine, and Vermont rallies.:)

    This is only 6hrs for us, I've never been to Canada and we just got our enhanced licenses. Now time to figure out the work time off.

    Figured I better post this immediately since the booking window has opened and the park is filling up quickly..

    We are booked for site 459 in Roe Campground... Those who have been there with us before, yes same site we had before.. Wanted something in the pull-thru area but they were already gone..

    Showed this to hubby and he thinks that would be a great way to spend Thanksgiving. Now we just have to decide if it will be worth the guilt from both sides of the family to skip Thanksgiving dinner! ;)

    This sounds pretty cool. We'd love to go camping in Canada. But that would be a haul for us. 10+ hours each way, not including stops.

    Thats a lot of driving! Worth it if you have enough time off, but that's a fair distance....ok....It's a heck of a long distance! lol

    Don't get me wrong...it's beautiful up here....Arrowhead is one of our favourite parks.
