Whether it's possible to double up depends on the campground and the time of the year.

The Johnson City, TX rally was held in the summer as I recall and doubling up allowed them to get 60 Fiberglass trailers into the campground and keep many if not most the campground's regular customers.

I do not remember any issues with the campground's bathrooms. or parking. It seems we parked on our site.

If the rally is off summer season it may be possible to find a campground where this is not necessary.

We would be interested in attending if we're in the NE,

Hi Gerry,

I would be interested in attending a rally in New England. Became an Oliver owner this year and dry camped across VT, NH and ME over the summer. Never been to a rally. Hope 2017 is the year I attend one!

If you haven't already, look on the forum here for the list and map of rallies.
With any luck you'll find some that will work for you. They are a lot of fun.
Hope to see you at one.

Got the ball rolling

I got the ball rolling and have decided that out of the 3 campgrounds I went to...drum roll please.... Chocorua Camping Village will be the spot of my rally.
Now trying to decide if a June or Sept Rally will be best.
Will decide and post soon.

We stayed at that campground for a few days a couple years ago. It was OK, would do it again, but already have rallies booked for June and September so probably won't be able to make it.

Hosting a rally is hard work as everyone will approach you if they need anything. I did one years ago in the Poconos at a KOA, turn out ok for a first timer. The hard part is finding a location everyone likes and then arranging the activities. I'd find a suitable location and then pick some dates and see what responses you will receive. You mention winter camping but not many will try such, Fall and leave foliage is a definite, Finger Lakes area has several campgrounds, so that would be my vote because it is central to Maine and NH/Vermont.
But I'm open to any good time with fellow fgrv owners. Also there are several other rallies in the fall and some who are still working have limited time.

I have worked on and off for this campround for the past 9 years and they have all kinks taken care of as far as camp sites.
I am now planning some activities, with myself and with the rec. director at the campground for different things to do in and around the campground.
There is the whole White Mountain National park only 29 minutes away with awsome seanic ride to take and also, for the woman , the shopping meca of Tax free NH, North Conway, that some may enjoy.
If they do not have fun at this rally, it'll be thier own fault.
We will have things to do in the campground every day also.

Those KOA campgrounds are doubtless fun for kids, but my guess is that most folks at MFG rallies are not traveling with kids, and might prefer a less-expensive state park. We would, for sure.

I agree KOA's cost more, but they do offer a discount for groups and they normally will have a pavilion available as well as hot/cold showers and a small store. So you may pay a little more but you receive more also.....

Another reason for state parks is that they are more rustic, with more private sites, especially if you boondock in tent sites. Of course, many ralliers will prefer close sites to make socializing easier, and sites with hookups. But then you may have to put up with a three-ring circus at commercial sites. To each his own, I guess.

I never worry about a rally location, the purpose is for like people to get together and have group fun. Most of our Koa experience has been at rallies. Though we really never choose to stay at a Koa, when we have stayed their at rallies we have had fun.

Cost V. Amenities

I Agree with Jim and can say the cost for is worth the bang you get.
We will have access to a covered pavilion and an indoor rec. hall.
On site store / free hot showers / laundry on site / propane on site and a staff that will go above and beyond for the camper.
This is a 10-10-10 campground and the sites are spacious (depending on the one you want to pay for Sewer, Elec and Water or as Lynn said just a tent site with just water & Elec. at a lower rate.
I've been in campgrounds where sites are more spacious and Ive been in, yes, even state or national campgrounds where it's like a parking lot.
This campground was laid out in the 1950's and the owner is a great nature lover so he has left trees between the sites.
Cost:
From the owner of the campground to me:

In the meantime I can give you some basic info. on rates etc. The best time
for us to entertain this program would be the second or third week of May;
or the second or third week of June. In May the Deluxe waterfront sites
would be: $49/site for 20 - 30 campers, and the off water prime sites would
be $39/site; or for 31 - 40 sites the rates would be Deluxe/$45/site, prime
$35/site; with more than 41 or more the rates would be $40 & $30. For June
dates add $5/nite to these rates. Our normal rates are almost double these
rates.


I do not think these prices are out of line;
Also other then holiday or theme weekends the children population is low expecialy not in the summer months.
