Thank you,

Yeah, I knew you wanted to move a bit... probably got tired of being in the alleyway You'll like site A9, it's surrounded by bushes and will give you more privacy. But not too much privacy... you'll still have plenty of lookey-loos!

See ya in 269 days!

Re: Bulllards Beach in July

Well, I'm checking out the sites on ReserveAmerica and I'm having problems in that I don't understand the terms. By vehicle length are they referring to the trailer and tow together? I looked at a couple sites, B23 and B24 and the note on them says limited to trailers 16 feet or less and the Toad is a 17'.

Having never been there I could use some help selecting a suitable site.

Thanx

Re: Bulllards Beach in July

Hi baglo,

I've camped at Bullard's Beach several times. A lot of the sites on the inside of the loop are situated at a 90 degree angle to the road and that is why they recommend a trailer 16' or less. We had one of those when we had our 16' Casita and didn't have much problem getting into it (not that I'm any help, according to my husband).

The park reservation system shows the site length in feet of the paved driveway. So with a 19' trailer and 19' truck we look for a site at least 45'. We prefer a site on the outside of the loop, regardless. They're usually roomier and more private. We don't really need sewer for just a few days. There's a nice dump station right there.

Can you see Gene's map? Reace posted the link in the top post. At least you'd get an idea of what a given site looks like.

268 days a counting!

Re: Bulllards Beach in July

Sounds like a fun-filled rally! I would love to come, but it is a bit far from Wisconsin.... Must be fun to meet everybody in person! :

Re: Bulllards Beach in July

Yup. Been there and Reserve America. Only sites left that looked OK are those on the inside of the loop B ( they say 16' max trailer ) or ones with no separation from neighbors. Does this gathering expand into the C- loop?
I'm still pondering... Being a minister's kid, I had my fill of pot luck dinners and socials as a child, so I'm not sure it's for me.

Re: Bulllards Beach in July

Glenn, by the time the Gathering rolls around, every spot in A, B & C loop will be taken! I'm betting if you can back a 16' trailer into a spot, you could back a 17'. But don't quote me on that!

I've gone to the Gathering twice before but missed the last couple of years. It is highly organized and there are lots of activities. But there's really no pressure to partake if you're not into it. My husband and I like to go off together, so we'd miss a lot of the presentations and stuff. Back when we had the Casita, we loved looking at the other trailers during the Open House. Now that we have our "dream trailer" don't know if it will still be so interesting...

It is a beautiful area though and there are plenty of things to see and do. And it's very cool seeing all that fiberglass lined up everywhere!

Re: Bulllards Beach in July

Since I have not yet become a "backer upper", I have thought that if worst comes to worst, I could unhook and push it!

Re: Bulllards Beach in July

I'm thinking there will be lots of help around for you when you pull up, Sandra. I bet you can get a man to hop in and back that thing up for you; you know how they like showing off their skills <ducking>
