Halloween Campouts the entire month of October?
DW has a short fall break this year the third week of October. We'd been considering for some time on taking a run to Gettysburg to visit the battle sites. It's a place I've passed many times but never had time to stop and visit. Once we'd finalized our plans, I realized I've run up against Halloween Festivities in every campground in the Gettysburg area. They are completely booked.
I did manage to find ONE site available at Round Top. It doesn't have the best ratings, but we're there to visit the sites, not camp. I guess I'm amazed, the economy being what it is, that campgrounds do not really seem to be affected. We camped a few weekends ago at Lake Rudolph in Santa Claus, IN. They have Halloween themed weekends both the entire month of September AND October. I've already booked my 2013 weekend.
When I travel, I like to avoid having to make reservations, but that's riskier and riskier lately. You can't just roll into a town and expect to find a site. For Gettysburg, for a while it looked like we'd end up in Carlisle or farther and even then campsites were few and far between.
