Sooooo, the Spring Rally was pretty much nixed this year. The stars, planets, and moon just didn't line up for it. So lets look forward to a Fall Rally!

I am thinking Fort Desoto in Pinellas in October. I know a lot of people love Fort Desoto campground.

It is soon enough that we should be able to start booking in April and be able to get sites. I was looking at the weekend of the 15th &16. SHFL also suggested the weekend of the 22nd & 23rd.

So, if you are interested I am putting up a poll for the weekends.

At this time, nothing is written in stone until sites start getting booked. So, if you want to throw out another campground for the chosen weekend (for one of the 2 weekends listed above) we can do another poll IF it is done before April 10th (booking for Fort Desoto for October 15 & 16th opens up April 15th and 16th for non county residents).

Mom has been wanting to try Fort De Soto out for some time now. At this point either weekend could work since we don't have the Daughter's school schedule yet.

I am interested in this Rally. I've never camped Fort De Soto, sounds like a fun time. At this point I don't know which date would work better. [:D]

Thanks for the interest! We will definitely be trying for Fort DeSoto, but I know how difficult it can be to get sites here. Especially for those of us who live outside of Pinellas County.

I was just checking site availability, and please be aware that there are NO SITES AVAILABLE IN THE PET-FRIENDLY LOOP either weekend. We don't have a pet, but there may be others who are planning to bring their pets...

We prefer the October 22-23 date because in our county the kids have October 21 off. It would be great if all of the districts had the same calendar.

No bookings yet since most cannot book until April 14th. The only ones that can book now are those who live in Pinellas County. Non Pinellas Resident can only book 6 months in advance whereas Pinellas residents can book 7 months in advance. We can see what sites come available.

SHFL, do you live in Pinellas County? If not then it would show no availability since we are not at the 6month out mark until April 14th.

No dogs won't be an issue for us since Mom and DD is going to want to explore the fort again and I don't want to leave Tink at the camp alone. Mom really loves that area and I know she'll want to explore and hang out at the beach. Anddddd there's this winery in town she loved the last time..... [;)]

Hi Kimmygr. No, I am not a resident of Pinellas county, but I used the link for residents (because I wasn't actually MAKING the reservation -- I was just looking around...).

There were plenty of sites in the other two loops.

Hi everyone,
I am brand new to this site and pretty much the whole camping thing. We just bought a pop up and have gone camping in it twice. I absolutely love it and am addicted. I would love to attend the rally and meet up with some fellow campoholics!! [:)C]

I guess we will stick with Fort DeSoto for Oct 14th-16th (Fri-Sun). It won't be an "official" rally unless we get at least 5 families booked and confirmed with site #'s.

I'm up for this for sure. Do we know what area of the camp group we are looking at?

It doesn't really matter, but I booked in the Tent only area.

We will be on site #27
