    Lou, it has been a few years since we have met up with you guys. We will keep an eye on this thread. Looks like a good possibility we could be in. Hookups preferred.

    I won't be able to answer to we get a few months closer but unless they have improved Mystic I'd prefer the other 2 choices.

    Chris,
    What was the problem with Seaport Resort (Not KOA), other than the previous ownership?

    The road into the place was almost inpassable and the place looked a little run down but that could of been just my impression

    We were at the Mystic KOA in May. Other than its expensive it was good. We never went to the state park.

    Do they have handicapped access? their brochure doesn't mention it. Is the rate for the entire site or per person?

    I am still inclined to go but need to know the answer on these.

    Thanks

    Are we looking to reserve sites as a group or just reserve where we want?

    Jerry,

    $35 per night is for the site. Up to 2 adults, four children.
    A minimum six families is needed for this to move forward as a rally.
    I will find out about the handicapped access.

    We need commitments for Seaport very quickly to secure these prime time sites.
    Once we have at least six, I will be back in contact with them and reservation details will follow.
    We will need to have our reservations completed by early December.
    After that, there is no guarantee on the discounted price or a site with the rest of the group.
    If you have any interest, please sign up now.
