I didn't call it expensive, someone else did. We booked a site for 4 nights, 30amp & water for $20/night. Seems reasonable to me!

As it happens, yes it has affected us greatly. We had an excursion planned that included many east coast things that the people's but under government control. I will stop here, because the truth of the matter is political and it makes me so angry I could spit.

No. Just returned from three weeks in rocky mountain Natl pk. (3 days before the flood hit Estes park, Lyons and boulder.) And Yellowstone, tetons, badlands, devils tower, Rushmore and others. I do feel sorry for those traveling now.

No, not at all. We are going to a rally in Myrtle Beach and Charleston. Both at private parks. We will not be going out much Nov/Dec., thenn Florida in Jan. Even tho it doesn't impact us, I still hope the shutdown ends and hate it for those it does impact.

We were working our way south from Oregon to Arizona with plans on taking a month to do it. We were going to stop at Yosemite (my wife had never been there), Sequoia and Kings Canyon National Parks as well as Death Valley. We made reservations at various private parks along the way. We got one day in Yosemite before hearing about the impending shutdown. Then we rushed and did Sequoia and Kings Canyon in one day and came back to Yosemite on Monday. We waited five days for things to change and then bagged the rest of our trip. We wanted to go back to Yosemite one more day and go back to Kings Canyon and Sequoia again and we wanted to see Death Valley. No such luck. We are now at our winter roost in Arizona about a week early. See, no political statement!

Catalina State Park:
That is reasonable but I bet that is prior to the 1st of the year. Now through December is off season according to the ranger that we talked to last year. Prices go up in January. Unless they have changed the prices from last year.

Enjoy it is a beautiful park! Watch the sunrises over the mountains, absolutely stunning!

Prices at Catalina don't change with the seasons. They stay the same all year long. We visit Catalina several times a year and it's always the same. We live 3 miles from the place and it's our camping home base. Make reservations as it does fill up during the snowbird migration. They now have an overflow area where you can overnight until a spot opens up

It already has affected us ...
Our maiden voyage with the new 5er was planned for a local COE,
made reservations before the 17% shutdown and got a call that it would be closed...

scrambled around to find a place and did... now to get a refund for the deposit...

only negative is the park we went to had a power failure and we got scratched by a tree up around the scare light on the way out !!!! :(

It won't effect our winter plans as we are in a private park. Actually the only time we stayed at a Federal Park is when we stayed at the Grand Canyon.

It has not affected us at all as my DW is recovering from rotator cuff surgery. If she had not had the surgery, it definitely would have affected us. Can't say we were lucky though. Surely it will be over by the time she is ready. From what I have read they are requesting $1.1 TRILLION (that's 1,100 BILLION) which is supposed to last 1 year, so we will be in the same boat again this time next year. That one will be just before the election also for some extra added excitement. Can't wait.

Nope, we just brought our Everest home from Grand Canyon south rim, Vegas, Zion, North Rim Grand Canyon, Bryce, and Salt Lake City, with a week to spare before shutdown. 5046 miles. Glad we beat the shutdown. Now winterize and get ready for a Michigan winter.

One lady that we know and her family had paid for a houseboat on one of the federal lakes. Some of them had come from England. The day that they were supposed to spend 5 days there they got the call .... Cost them another $2k on top to pay to go to a state lake and get the last houseboat and instead of spending 5 days on the lake they only got 2 days because of other problems and the weather ......
She said she should be grateful that's all the extra it cost them since they seen one family from Germany that was out over $15k cause the lake park was closed.

She and her family did get a refund and the other family got at least the refund from the park but the one family was out all the money from planes and stuff.

But is it effecting Thom and I? Not yet, but it will come Nov 1 if they don't pass a budget to get it going again ....

We are still almost three weeks from our COE reservation but those of you that have been canceled did you get a refund or any idea when? Seems like they owe you a cancellation fee
