Yes enjoy them while you can. Now we get to sneak of once or twice a year with the 3 grandkids ages 3, 7 and 10. They love going to the beach for the weekend with us and NO parents!!! HAHAHAHA

You can always check back a couple of months before you want to go as well and see if anyone has cancelled. We were able to get 5 nights in September back in July for two sites 64 & 66. Looking forward to it! First Topsail visit.

I hope I am not opening up a can of worms here but her goes. There seems to be an unpublished fact about Topsail. There are about 28 sites that "some" people book for 30 days at a time. That is about 17% of the sites. You call Reserve America and they don't know about them. I book two weeks in the spring and two weeks in the fall, I go by the published rules. There are always people on certain sites that are there when I get there and they are still there when I leave two weeks later, they are some of the same people I see year after year. That is one reason it is very difficult to get a site at Topsail. You will be hard pressed to get any information concerning these "longer term sites". I was told this is the only Fl. State park this is done in. I don't know if "they" allow this in the middle of the summer or not, because I am usually there in May and September.

Interesting. I was not aware of this. Is it possible, since Topsail was a private RV resort up until a few years ago, that some people may have been granted special privileges when it was sold to the state? Some (or all) of the sites may have been timeshare sites, and the state would buy them out and/or offer some kind of deal like extended stay options. I'm only guessing here. I have a few friends that spend a lot of time at Topsail and I will inquire.
