That's about 30 minutes from us. Campgrounds do fill up fast for holiday 3 day weekends so good thing you reserved early and got a site. Hope you have a great time! We'll be at our seasonal site as we are every weekend from April 15th thru Oct 15th.

we don't camp on holidays or weekends or in the summer.
not worth dealing with crowded campgrounds and idiot party people who tend to camp on such holidays.
plenty of time during the week to camp without all the craziness.
plus living in California, we can camp all year long, so missing summer camping is no big deal.

We do not wait for memorial weekend to kick off the season and our first outing this year is the first weekend in May (and even that is too long). We do camp on the holiday weekends, but we avoid campgrounds, they are packed. I get a premo site lakeside at my folks place. Am the only camper there. Love it.

We have been going that weekend for the last 10 yrs and most we spend at Kring Point , on the St. Lawrence River and this year won't be different. Grew up on the river and this campground is my wife's favorite. Right now it doesn't seem so close still lots of snow on ground but can't wait.

Wife and I already have our spot at Charlotte Motor Speedway for the Coke 600! Haven't even got our Roo yet either! Kind of a tradition with us now. No more tent camping at races either!

reserved Memorial Weekend at our local state park, Trap Pond. Reserved in December, it fills up fast. We will make a few trips before that though.

Winton Woods in Cincinnati. Went for the first time Labor Day weekend last year and liked it enough to book again. Also booked for the first weekend in May, Derby Day, at the Ky Horse Park. I will also go on a nice weekend in April to de winterize and re stock for the season. Just dropped of the fiver at the dealer today for my warranty repair punch list. Should be about 45 days out until my first trip of the season!!
