Fall Reservation Schedule Changes 2015

Postby CampADK » Fri Aug 28, 2015 10:29 am

There are a few changes this fall that effect reservations as well as sections open through the fall season.

Sites from 161 through 305 are closed for the season as of Mon Sep 7th (ie right after Labour Day weekend), as in the past.

Site 130

-160 remain open through Columbus Day weekend (Canadian Thanksgiving), as in the past.

Sites up to 137 remain open right through the end of the season (October 25th).

The big change this year is that after Columbus Day weekend Site 80

-137 remain open. Normally everything beyond the Peninsula (ie Site 80

) were closed after Columbus Day weekend.

The majority of open sites are now reservable throughout the fall season. The big exception this year however, is that the outside Peninsula loop including Site 51

-74 are NOT reservable in the fall.

Last year the outer Peninsula loop became reservable out of the blue, and many of the regular fall campers in 'Retirees Row' were forced to move sites as other campers arrived with reservations. This made a lot of the regular fall campers pretty upset with the campground. This year they will be able to camp along 'Retirees Row' without having to worry about being bumped off their site. Definitely great news for the regulars that spend several weeks or more camping along Retirees Row!

EDIT Sep 14: Site 161

-190 have been reopened due to the number of campers arriving without reservations... I.e. the campground is busier than usual.

Thanks for the info!! My cousin and I are just decided on a girls camping weekend Oct 2nd. Do you know what the access to Rollins is that time of year? Can we drive through or should we plan on walking or biking?

Thanks!

You can usually drive through Rollins. I have only seen barriers when they are doing some construction.

We often have biked up there to enjoy the fall colors.

This just in....

Due to the number of campers arriving as walkups earlier this week, the campground has reopened Site 161

to 190 as walkups.

Seems to me that now that Reserve America showing availability for the first time in the fall, campers realize Fish Creek does have sites available in the fall, and there are a lot more campers heading there so they need more sites open.
