Labor Day weekend camping

Recommended Posts

Haven’t camped here in prob over a decade. I know the park has several first come first serve sites, but how fast do these fill up? And on Labor Day weekend, how early in the week do you need to get there to get a spot, any spot? I was thinking about fighting the crowd and going Thursday after work and trying to stay thru Sunday but don’t want to risk driving there if nothing available.  What do you think, how busy will the campground be on Thursday? 100% occupancy?

Problem is the locals putting a chair or cooler on those sites to hold them for their local buddies.  Been going on for years there.  The reserved sites are pretty much all taken well in advance of holiday weekends. So the first come, first serve sites go quick.

We used to run into the same deal years ago.  Drive through and check the chairs for a half hour.  If nobody shows up ditch it and go check in.  Can't guarantee you won't be called out but we've done it before.

I called the park office yesterday and they suggested I get there the sunday before labor day weekend for a first come- first serve site.  May just be better off postponing the trip for a week and going the following weekend or even later in the fall.  besides, i think my wife is the only one excited about camping in summer.  id rather wait til temps cool down.

Done it at Bennett before too. People at the booth told me if nobody showed up within a half hour, just move it. You’re not supposed to hold a site for someone. The only way you’re supposed to hold a site is from the time you claim it till you go pay for it, they said.
