Chenango Valley State Park is an ice age wonder. Its two kettle lakes, Lily and Chenango, were created when the last glacier retreated and left behind huge chunks of buried ice which melted to form the lakes and bog. Birdwatchers may glimpse woodpeckers, nut hatches, warblers and thrushes along woodland trails and herons, ducks and kingfishers lakeside. Fishermen will find trout, bass, perch and bullhead in Chenango Lake. Campers can choose from among 184 campsites and 24 cabins and golfers will appreciate the 18-hole Chenango Valley State Park*Golf Course*(pro shop can be reached by calling: 607-648-9700).

Campground is just outside Binghamton, NY in Chenango Forks, NY. It is 1 hour from Corning or Ithaca, and 1 hours from Cooperstown (National Baseball Hall of Fame).

Lots of nice upstate NY views to see. This is a very nice State Park with lots of Trails, Lakes and peaceful tranquility. Come and enjoy the outdoors with fellow FROGS.

*************************************
Registration Opens October 25, 2023 - reserve your site by calling 1-800-456-2267 or reserve your site online through Reserve America or through the Parks.ny.gov website.

The Rally group is all located on the Chipmunk loop site 91-150


Once you reserve your site: please Email Ron (rmac04401) to tell me how many people you have attending, names of attendees, what site, Forest River Product owned, and date of arrival and departure. Email is rmac04401@yahoo.com
**************************************

The itinerary is casual, Times of gatherings will be determined as we get closer.

All gatherings will be behind/beside sites 114-115

Tentative Itinerary

Thursday Evening - Registration - Campfire
Friday Morning - Pancake Breakfast - Provided
Friday Afternoon - On your own to explore park and surrounding areas
Friday night – Meet and greet – potluck finger foods and dessert

Saturday – On your own to explore park and surrounding areas
Saturday- Camper crawl
Saturday night – Potluck

Sunday Morning - Last Gathering – Breakfast Potluck to visit and say Goodbyes.

The camper crawl is always a big hit so don't miss this activity.

This will be our 7th year. We do not have sites set aside for us; it is first come, first serve, so reserve early. The host will hopefully have site #114 again.

Once we hit the 25 sites, the rally will be closed, even if there are sites available at the campground. Logistically we can only handle 25 sites. If the rally is full, email Ron to get put on the waiting list.

If you do register for Chenango Rally 2024 and have to cancel for some reason, contact Ron first before cancelling your site. We will coordinate you and someone on the waiting list so the moment you cancel the waiting list person can pick up your site.

Thanks

Ron

We're going to see if we can make the cut again. Foot is still healing from the sprain last year. (No replays in 2024 hopefully.) Thanks for planning this guys! Hopefully we are able to all see each other next year.

Just a reminder. Even though you may secure a site the registration does not begin until the 25th, and the individual sends me an email with all the information that has been requested, and you receive my email back that you have secured a spot in the rally. Please refrain from posting anything about getting a site until the 25th. It may confuse some people.

Thanks.

One week from today Wednesday, October 25, 2023, Registration opens at 9:00 am.

Reserve your site, through NY Parks/reserve America, email me your name and names of attendees, type/model of RV, dates arriving and leaving.

Do not post on this thread, about reserving a site until you get a confirmation email from me that you are registered for the rally. I still work, so be patient.

Once we hit 25 sites, I will post that registration is closed and we will start a waiting list.

Heaven gained another angel, OUR angel. My wife Camille passed away this past Wednesday, 18 October after a private (her choice) battle with cancer. My daughter and I were with her at the time of her passing, and continue to pray that she is now at peace, free from the pain and struggles this horrible disease ravaged on her body. She fought hard until the bitter end.

She had the biggest heart and was the best wife, Mom and ESPECIALLY Grandma in the entire world. Bree was her greatest love. We are completely devastated. She didn't want any services, viewing or funeral and asked that everyone remember her the last time you saw her, vivacious and full of life. You all held a special place in her heart, this rally and the people were her favorite, please remember the fun times with her, that is what she'd want. Do a shot in her honor...and please make sure you hug your people tight and tell them you love them always.

Registration opens less than 14 hours from now. 9AM 10/25/2023

Reminder, once you reserve a site, send me an email with the names of the attendees, Manufacturer, Make, model, and year of your RV. Reminder you must own a Forest River, or affiliate RV to participate.

Once I receive your email I will respond with confirmation of registration for the Rally. At that time, you can post on the forum.

Once we hit 25 sites, we will start a Waiting list. Even if there are available sites at the campground, we can only handle 25 sites logistically for the rally.

I will process the emails in order of receipt. You will need to send me an email to register for the rally after securing a site. I will not be monitoring the site, only my email.

I will post on here when we are full, or close to full as time permits.

Thank you all for your interest in our Rally.

PS. I still work so if you do not get an immediate response be patient with me. Thanks

Ron

Yay, I supposedly had 'loyalty points' and basically got 4 nights at Chenango for cost of 3. I'll take it.

Love when that happens. I tend to get those consistently, namely because I live in NY. We do bunches of camping around here at the state parks.
