Hi Camping Buddies,
It's that time again.... Time to make camp site reservations for the 2010 Oregon Gathering! The dates are July 15-20 (Thursday – Sunday) at Bullard's Beach State Park. I recommend making reservations now if you are considering coming but are not sure if you can make it yet. You can always cancel your reservations later (or sell your site to someone else) but it will be more difficult to get reservations later. Consider arriving early and staying late, if at all possible.
Early Reservation Directions:
Reservations can be made nine months (to the day) before a camping date and people can reserve a site for up to two weeks. If you want to arrive on Monday, July 12th, you can make your reservations today. If you want to arrive on July 15th then you need to wait until October 15th (this Thursday) to make your reservations. If you try to make your reservations too early, the online park reservations will tell you all the sites are full.
Oregon State Parks have raised their fees this year. There is an $8 reservation fee and it costs $24/night. They have also made some rule changes. You cannot reserve extra nights, then cancel down to the days you want, and still get your money back for the cancelled days. But… you can cancel the complete reservation and still get all your money back minus the $8 registration fees.
Mike and I will be in the same site again this year: A-12. So, go online right now (or call) and reserve a site.
1. Pick Your Campsite:
Go to Gene’s wonderful map and see a photo of each site and whether it has sewer or not. http://www.casitaforum.com/bullards/...P-2010.css.htm
2. Make Campground Reservations:
Go here. Click "Reserve Online"
Or call Reserve America 1-800-452-5687 (Monday through Fridays, 8:00 AM – 5:00 PM, PST)
3. Sign Up for the Gathering:
Go here and complete this form.
Remember! Even though you make park reservations, we will not know you are attending the Gathering and you will not be signed up for the Gathering unless you complete and send this form.
I will give you (people who attended the last two years) until Wednesday, October 14 to get your reservations made. Then I will post a general announcement on the fiberglass trailer boards. (Please, do not publicly post anything about making Gathering reservations until then.)
I hope to hear from you this week and see you at the Gathering next July.
