Additional information about this rally:
Rally History: This is the 6th year we've had a Thanksgiving Rally and two of the years were at this campground, it's a great place.

Campground: This campground only has 55 sites and the electric sites sell out every year.  The camp sites 148 thur 155 are in a open wagon wheel layout with the center site (149) as our gathering site.  There is little privacy at these sites but a great time socializing and the kids playing.

Weather: The weather has been pretty consistant over the years with comfortable cooler fall weather during the day and cold nights around a large group campfire.  We've had fresh cooperpot caramel popcorn, guitar playing, pumpkin painting and many other activities.

Gathering Dinner: Our group dinner is Saturday evening and with Marc and many others help, I cook 3 or more turkeys and everyone brings Thanksgiving sides or desserts for a group sitdown meal together.  Followed by a large campfire.

Area Information: Caledonia is in the northernmost section of the Blue Ridge Mountains and the Appalachian National Scenic Trail passes through the park.  All site allow pets and many have electric.

I know Barb, I was thinking the same thing when I started it but many people have work schedules a year in advance.  Hey neighbor, we camped together in these same sites for the Thanksgiving rally about 5 years ago.

hey Joe, this is one of my favorite areas for a ralley.  I had the same spot the years we were here, but I can't remember if it was 150 or 151, would you happen to remember?

DH requested that I change our site. We are now in site 143. FYI, there is a $10 fee with any change.

oh no Paula, I all ready have 153!!!  don't change!


NOTE:  Just talked to Paula on phone, rusty wanted to change to spot they were at before, guess he don't want to socialize with us in the loop!  All though site 150 is a bit unlevel, whoever takes it will need blocking for the rear stabilizers to hit ground.
