Our President (Jeannine Fontaine) said: MUST BOOK all Campouts ASAP, as no one will hold a block of spots this year. Most have non-refundable deposits also. Please go over deposits and refund policy with them when you make a reservation. This year was tough – most campgrounds we looked at wanted $320 to $450 for a week.
When you make a reservation with a campground, tell them that you’re with Southeast Lows (SeLoWs). Campgrounds will try to put us together, but no one will guarantee it this year.
When you make a reservation, please email firstname.lastname@example.org to let Cheryl know that you plan to attend.

I made my reservation this morning (3/13). They didn’t have any full hookup sites available, so I reserved a Water & Electric and put my name on a waiting list for a full hookup.
Last time we were there, some GPSs showed the campground being further down the road. Their sign was hard to see, but they’ve added a new sign saying that you’re approaching the campground. Start looking for their signs on the left after a short bridge.
