Great responses everyone. Keep up the great work!  We also need some dates kicked around. Veterans state park appears to be most votes so far. I would say it is roughly 2 1/2 hours below Atlanta for those in north Georgia area.
Life is like a Roller Coaster, you go high and low with some sharp turns! Just hold on!

Veteran's looks like a great place to camp, except for the fees. If I read it correctly, it's 25-30$ a night. Is that correct? Veteran's would be close enough to us, but way over our budget.

Just reading this without all its knowledge of when. My zip is 35773 and wondering how far out this is. Been looking for a trip to rally with fellow campers.

I don't think we will find a full facility camp ground for under $20.00 per night. Last Rally at McKinney rates were $24-28.

I have been looking at travel distances and I came across Wind Creek State Park Alabama. It is on Lake Martin and looks like a nice place. I have never been there, so all I know about it is what I read. Looks like Mtnkube would be the furthest away (about 4.5 hours). Everyone else is 3.5 hours or less. I may have overlooked someone, if so sorry :-[ It's not really close to no one, but equally long distance for everyone. Lol.

I had forgotten the rates, probably because we got a good discount. Do you know if the America The Beautiful Senior Pass applies at Veteran's like it did at McKinney?

I believe the "America the Beautiful pass" only applies to federal facilities. Both Veterans memorial and Wind Creek are state parks. McKinney was federal.

Well, both Veteran's and Windcreek's would certainly work for us. We'll just have to stay 2 nights rather than 3 if we don't get a discount. Either way, I know we'll have a super time, with super camper/friends.

It's pretty darn close to us.  ;D

I dont know why I didnt think about Wind Creek. I was there several years ago and it was very nice. I also didnt realize it would be an equal drive for everybody either. My vote would be for Wind Creek. 3 hours closer to our house than Cordele, GA.

5 hours driving for us.  That'd be a bit too much after work/school on Friday and again Sunday afternoon before school on Monday.  If there's a holiday involved, we might swing it.

We were at Windcreek SP this past March, its a very large park.  It being a state park, normally you can not reserve a specific site.  Not sure how it would be handled for a rally.  The COE have some great CG, but in Alabama most of the are on the West side of the state. There are a couple located on West Point Lake on the AL/GA line.
