Brandi,
I'm not sure what happened when your friend checked the Taidnapum reservation site, but I checked it again this morning, plugged in our trip dates (June 4-8), and they still show Site 46 and Site 49 as "available". Perhaps she may have erred in her search? I don't know what she found, but there should still be two sites left as of 6:50am today.
Greg

When checking the site it asks what size of RV you have and if you check tents, it will give you no sites. These are only for RVs and will say nothing is available. When you get to the reservation site, it says, no tents are allowed in any sites so maybe Brandi's friend checked the wrong box.

I suppose she may have not specified having an RV (as opposed to a tent). Not sure what she plugged into the reservation webpage, but I agree with Doug, that she may just want to call the Park Reservation folks by phone and confirm what's really still available, and perhaps also find out why she couldn't book a site on-line.

"things"

Brandy, you and I are "almost" neighbors which makes it easier for dragging the lawn chair around

Talking

Some of those sites say reserved for 'van campers'. Why that would be they said it is too hard to manuver a trailer into the spot.

Maybe if you call the park, and explain the size of your rig, they may let you in.

PS: Site #49 is right by the black tank emptying station.

Looks like the "dump station" is closer to 46 than it is to 49, at least from the drawing on the park reservation website.

Not to mention the fact that SOMEONE attending should have a Boler Stroller with them, so the traditional backing up routine almost a thing of the past! (Makes manuvering a snap!).

Site map I have shows 'Sanny Dump' almost directly behind site #49.
(LOL!! It also 'seems' to be across the road from a CULTURAL EXHIBIT, wonder IF the park designer was trying to make a statement??)

Here are a couple of photos from the reservation website of both sites available. Site 46 wants a van/camper to be in that site probably due to the fact it is so close to site 45 and a tow vehicle and trailer would block access to site 45.

Site 49 has a nice view of the dump station just through the trees. Kind of surprising since this site does not have sewer hookups like the other sites in the area

We might need to start a waiting list and offer sites in case there is a cancellation from a fellow egg owner.

Boy, I never figured we'd come to taking cancellation requests in just our 2nd year, in order to attend. Last year we only had a dozen rigs, this year we have pretty much filled up the loop. I think we may possibly need to find an even larger venue for the next get-together, although they will probably have the newly constructed sites open sometime this year as well. Does anyone have any opinions as to whether we want to establish a single repeated venue here, (kind of a same time-same place thing like the one at Bullards Beach,) or should we keep this thing a "travelling circus roadshow" at a different place each year? Just puttin' out a "feeler".

Greg

Greg, it seems no one has stepped up to the plate to express an opinion, so I'll break the ice and say that the Trailer Goddess and I would prefer a same place event. Easier to plan to get to and from every year. .....and yes, it looks like a larger venue might be needed, but you can NEVER accompany EVERYONE all the time.

Our (West Coast Canadian) event [at] The Fort Campground started years ago with about 6 like minded campers. Its grown in size almost every event. We DO meet twice a year, same place. Some years the host (Craig) has had to turn back to the park MANY unused sites, other years we have had to turn people away. Its always a first come/first served deal anyway, so 'Snooze, Ya Loose'!!
Just A Thought In Passing:
Our event (in May) comes before yours, why not plan to take ours in and see how 'we' do it'?

I know others on here will vote for the roaming venue, but IMHO, that could/would make attendance by some a no show deal. IF its held too deeply into WA, OR to far east, for us, it would be too far to go just for a weekend event. For example for the Trailer Goddess and I to attend this June, SHE has to take part of her allotted vacation which cannot be broken down into days, must be taken in 5 day (work day) increments. (I KNOW, it SUX to be us!!)
SO NOW we have to plan of allowing 2 weeks of her vacation to attend a weekend event!!!

Yet, another reason for staying at the same place is that 'someone' doesn't have to do all the leg/prep-work to find a new place to 'hatch' our Eggs for next time, PLUS the park 'hosts' get to know the group and are prolly going to be more reciptive to repeat visits!!!

So, I'll git offa mah soap box (for now) and Thanks for listening to mah .02 $ (Canadian)
