PLEASE TAKE NOTE: I spoke to Sandy Beach Park Campground personnel today in an attempt to make a reservation. All 26 of the reservable sites are taken. There are 15 first-come, first served sites. So, if you have a reservation, you're golden. If you don't, it may be risky to assume you can get a spot.  Perhaps we could get a list of those that have reservations and see if there's enough sites reserved to ensure everyone can get a spot? Staff said the first three weekends in October are all booked up.

Gosh darn it!!  I knew I should have made reservations sooner!!  Did they mention what time they start taking FCFS's?
Comment by Joe on September 28, 2011 at 6:05pm
Looks like I may need to arrive on Friday morning then.
Comment by Kris Hansen on September 28, 2011 at 7:25pm
I could possibly get there on Friday afternoon to get another spot, if that's an option.

Michelle and I can't make it 'til Saturday, is there anyone we can double up with?  T-Rex is behaving, not so badly, and we would like to take her out.

We didn't get a reservation yet.  I may be able to head up Friday morning to get a spot or two if I'm able. -Shelby

Oh no, we did not make a reservation, either and wont be able to come until Saturday ... would someone, who arrives on Friday let us share a site?
