justchillin: yes, 2018. Reservations go quickly because there is only one electric loop in the park. I believe we want the sites from 76-99 if possible as they are the flat part of the loop (if memory is correct). The other side of the loop is hilly. And farther from the bathhouse/closer to the playground (noise from kids playing).

NYS no longer charges an out of state premium. The residents pay the same now. :'(

I just checked out the reservation link for this one. Looks like we can book 9 months prior to the date.  So by my calcs, that means Sept 18. 

Gary or Barb - are my calculations correct? I want to make sure that I put it the calendar so I remember  ;D

That sounds right. You can always reserve for a few days ahead of when you want to be there and after 15 days change the ressie to start on the actual day you want to arrive (If that's still allowed. Please check the rules for clarification).

Our plan is to camp for a week also.  Not sure yet what we would like to do.  Definitely want to fish/kayak the lake.
My goal in life is to be the person my dog thinks I am.

The time is near!!   For all those hedging on distance a comparison. From Valley Forge, PA is is 4hrs. 1/2 hour longer than going to Raystown lake a couple years ago. Other than the last 17 miles all expressway.

Thingette1 you mention #76-99, but it looks like the rally is suggesting the loop upto #74

Justchillin: all the sites should work for you. I suggest 76-104 because that is the flatter side of the loop. The lower numbers are up and down hill.
