Campgrounds would not hold sites for us this year, so make your reservations ASAP (within 2 weeks if possible). Some have non-refundable deposits, so check the cancellation policy on campground websites or discuss when making your reservations. When you make a reservation with a campground, tell them that you’re with Southeast Lows (Loners on Wheels). They will try to put our group together, but no one would guarantee it. As usual, it was difficult finding campgrounds at the rates we prefer. After you make a reservation, please email to let Cheryl know that you plan to attend.
