    Traffic's a b**ch, gas is pricey, campgrounds and SP's are packed, and nothing's terribly relaxing on a holiday weekend, so I think we'll just pop-up in Camp Driveway this year. Gauranteed quality calm.

    We're going to Livingston SP here in Texas. It has a nice pool for Trenton and it's close to home...so a little better on the gas budget. Going to cost an arm and a leg to pull the pup to Branson in June. What we'll be saving in hotel money, we'll probably spend on gas! <img src=../Images/icons/icon_smile_angry.gif border=0 align=middle alt="Angry">

    We will also be at Jordan Lake!

    Be sure to get there early enough on Friday - or even sooner during the week. The entire park usually fills up by evening on that weekend.

    Just today we made reservations at Moffitt Beach,State Campground in Speculator, NY. Last year we joined my brother and his girlfriend here for both Memorial Day and Columbus Day weekends - to open and close the season. We had a great time - and decided to make it an annual outing.

    We have reservations at a Amusement Park Campground in Indiana called Holiday World. The kiddos are super excited. This is the first time in years we are actually doing something on Memorial Day Weekend...usually we hide at home.

    Hi,

    We are planning a long camping weekend at Hickory Knob State Resort Park in McCormick, SC(http://www.southcarolinaparks.com/park-finder/state-park/1109.aspx). We've never been to this one, but it looks very nice. Hopefully it won't be too crowded.

    We will be at Ouabache SP in Indiana along with other members of the Great Lakes Pop Up club. The park offers good family recreation and it is a smaller park (only 80 sites with electric hookup) so even full it doesn't seem overly crowded.

    If we camp holiday weekends, we reserve at the smaller parks (or smaller loops within a larger park) to alleviate the congested feeling.

    We also avoid parks with larger lakes and power boats. Those parks tend to feel like party central on a holiday.
