Forget black Friday sales, I was up at 6:45 this morning to reserve what I’m guessing must be the the most popular campsite in the state – and didn’t get it! Booking started at 7AM and it was reserved 7:01. I guess I just didn’t hit send quite fast enough.
Washington State Parks allow you to reserve many of their sites exactly 9 months ahead, so if you book this week you can get (or try to get) popular sites for the end of August 2010. (and last year I thought I was so on the ball by booking before Memorial Day).
OK so I did get an adjacent site but it’s not as big or as private as the one I wanted. Sayonara Southend Site 8 at Moran State Park on Orcas Island – maybe next year .
