S.E. Kansas rally

Would like to plan a rally for May or June in Ft. Scott, Ks.
It would be at Gunn Park-a nice treed park with 2 lakes and several shelters.
The campground area has 14 campsites with water and electric.
There is also restroom/no shower.
Things to do in Ft Scott-visit the historic fort, ride Dolly the Trolly to see the historic homes, National Cemetery the downtown antique shops.
Anyone interested?

Hi Carl, hope you all can come.
Talked to the park dept. and they said I can reserve sites.
Hope to set a date soon.
Let me know what dates would or wouldn't work for you.

Only conflicting dates I would have would be VA appointments.
They can usually be rescheduled without a problem.

Dates that won't work for me are days with ice storms.........LOL

That's far enough out I should be able to work around
what ever date you decide on.

The only thing I would say that might be a little hard is the fact that where you want to hold it has only 14 sites......

I personally think 14 attendee's is small. I think you might find you have more people wanting a site? Not sure, but just my thinking.......

I found Crawford State Park just south of Fort Scott that has 100 sites. Depending on interest.

Find Campsites - Crawford State Park, KS - ReserveAmerica - [KS]

Dont think there will be a need for more sites.
This is the first year for the rally or get together.
If more people are coming I will move it to a bigger campground.
There are several areas a few miles from town.
Would like to stay close to town so people will have things to do and see in their free time.
Thanks for the info.

Rick I think Robin has raised a valid point. Historically even though its a first year rally I suspect you can expect more than 14 trailers. Not sure I have ever attend a rally with only that small number unless it was by private invitation only. The problem is that once you post a rally publicly here people know about it and plan to attend but many will not post publicly here that they are attending - for security reasons. They will just book in. Historically our rallies here have ranged from a low of 35 (heavy rainy week-end forecasted - threat of the road to the campground flooding out due to high rains ) to a high of 95 trailers (sunny week-end forecasted).

Oh I could be wrong, but let's be honest. That is about the only time of year to be in Kansas, You might just get more people than your thinking. Especially because that is the time of year people are traveling through there on their way to other destinations. Just saying, you can always adjust as needed. There is a Kansas rally that has been going 2 years and if I remember correctly it's pretty popular from the get go........

The passing through is a good point. Here in BC we have had people show up from as far as Texas, Florida and New York (sorry if I have forgotten anyone) as well as from Eastern Canada.
Seems lots of people take a look at the Rally Map when making their vacation plans to see if there are any rallies in the areas they are planing on going through.

Yup thats true but then again there is the *BIG* Quartzsite meet where there not only no showers but no power or water. Just never know what people are going to dig!
