    How many people on the portal are considering Camp Driveway as their camping season due to this awful virus? Just wondering cause as of right now campgrounds around Maine are due to start opening around the first of April, and I usually receive emails from ones that Im on the mailing list for telling of their opening date. So far, nothing.

    It's hard to tell right now what will happen. Campgrounds up here in Alaska don't typically open until the weekend before Memorial Day weekend, so by then it could be over. Most CGs are closed here anyway, so there's no revenue loss... yet. But reservations may be slow now, and folks who usually plan to rent RVs and come up to Alaska may be postponing their plans. So, even though the travel ban may be lifted by June or July, the CGs up here may be hurting since nobody came up. If the ban is lifted, and it is safe to do so, we will do our best to get out and use our local CGs. If not safe, we'll likely just leave the rig in storage.

    I really wish I can do camp driveway. However the unit sits in off site storage. Have a trip planned, reservations made mid April, but waiting to see what comes of it.

    I plan on heading to a campground as soon as it isn't raining or cold.
    Arkansas and Oklahoma State parks are still open. I dont mingle with others while camping anyway so nothing will change.

    I was thinking about doing camp driveway because we're on lockdown in Michigan and the house is loud from everyone being home.

    I have no desire whatsoever to camp in my driveway.

    Is that "no desire" to driveway camp?

    We were “empty nesting” before our daughter’s college closed due to COVID-19, and sent all the students home for the rest of the semester. Our camper is now serving as her “study hall”, until she can go back to school. Strange times.

    We will probably do camp back yard. With my mom needing me we won't be camping anywhere except at my in-laws property near Alex Bay. They have a second lot that we plant our camper on when we don't have a trip planned.

    Same here. Kansas and Missouri State Parks are staying open. We were planning to go later this week, but it doesn't look like the weather is going to cooperate.

    When the weather improves or we go stir-crazy (whichever comes first) we'll probably give it another try, but we're going to have to sneak out of town. The entire Kansas City metro is going under stay at home order at midnight tonight.
