I just checked Recreation.gov

There are currently 2 sites available.

I only have 14 names so if you have a reservation please email me at tommcrae85@yahoo.com with your name(s), site number and dates attending.

Kansas Eggstravaganza May 17 Update

As of a few minutes ago site A-44 was available. That is a very good site.

Currently the lake is around 20 feet above conservation level and all lakeside sites are under water. With almost 4 months until the rally that should probably not be an issue. However, Joyce and I will continue to monitor the situation and if necessary we will come up with a plan “B”. The rally will NOT be canceled.

I have tried to pick up everyone who has posted on one of the forums that they have a site. I have 2 people telling me they are in the same site. I have either 14 or 15 names.

Only people on my (email) mailing list will receive a roster since I do not post it on public forums.

I had to cancel my trip back east, so you can remove my name/site number from your list. Thanks!

June 8, 2019 Kansas Eggstravaganza Update

We just visited Farnum Creek Campground and the news is not good. All the lower campsites in A-Loop are under water and B-Loop is completely under water. There 19 unable sites in A-Loop. In the last few days the lake level has dropped about 1 foot, however, the damage has already been done. It is unlikely that repairs will be completed in time for the rally. They may not even be done for next season.

We are now actively looking for a Plan B.

Assuming most of the usable sites are reserved by rally people, we could just double up. That would be close quarters for the smaller sites and only one camper could be plugged in at a time.

Since all other Milford Lake Corps campgrounds are closed and The State Park and Flag Stop are heavily impacted, local options are limited. Acorn Acres is not impacted, but they do not have enough open sites available and they will not give us any price break.

I need responses to the following from everyone who is planning to attend.
Are you willing to double up?
Are you willing to go to a commercial campground?
What price are you willing to pay at a commercial campground?
Will you boondock?
How far from Farnum Creek Campground are you willing to be?
If we can find an open Corps campground within 50 miles will you still attend?

Please email me at tommcrae85@yahoo.com.

Please Do Not Post your responses on a forum or Facebook.

We are moving Eggstravaganza

Please read this entire post

OK, it is official. We are moving Eggstravaganza to Four Seasons RV Acres. The campground is attached to the RV Sales & Service.

It is located at exit 281 off I-70. (I mean right at the exit)

If you come early and/or stay late you can get the group rate.

You must tell them that you are with Eggstravaganza to get the group rate.

There is a convenience store/gas station.

Weather permitting, the swimming pool will be open.

There is a meeting room for our activities.

There is a laundry.

The facilities are old, but they were clean when I checked today.

For reservations call: 785-598-2221 or 1-800-658-4667
Address:2502 Mink RD; Abilene, KS 67410
Web site: www.4seasonsrv.com

As for your reservations at Farnum Creek:

If you are in a site that is currently usable (1-14 or 35-38) you need to cancel and there will be a cancellation fee.

The Corps will most likely be cancelling all the other (flooded) sites. If you wait for them to cancel you will get a full refund (no cancellation fee). If you do not wait and cancel now there will be a fee.

I called the new location and made a reservation for that whole week on site 44. Very nice people on the phone. They did not take a deposit when I asked - they said to call them back if I cannot make it. Looks to be several sites available - she said only 8 or so others had booked for the rally as of my call a couple days ago. Now I am waiting for the original camp reservations to be cancelled by Recreation.gov to get my full refund....
