Thank you. I, too hope you never experience this.

Thanks for the info - I've heard great things about Carlsbad and it is centrally located for the people coming to the reunion. Any suggestions on other places should we not be able to get a reservation?

The only other ones we have been to around there are Aqua Caliente at Anza Borrego which we LOVE but closed during the summer and San Mateo Campground at San Onofre. I would say that one would be a good choice and easier to get. It is a 2 min drive to San Clemente SB (another option but hard to get) or there is a trail to hike to beach. I thought sites #23 and #24 were the best hookup sites at San Mateo. There are also some boondocking sites too if you want I can give you numbers of one's I scouted out. My preferences are in privacy, view and space. Those are both about 30 min north of Carlsbad.

Otherwise you could escape the heat and check out Palomar mountain. Never been but want to. Julian could be an option too but no state campground there only private.

It's not like I'm going to let $30 stand in the way of my family spending time together.

I bet we burn 4-5 nights a year this way. If rates start climbing I might have to rethink this strategy. But right now the juice is still worth the squeeze.

I hear you and agree. Except for the fact that Moose Hillock is $90 a night now. They are getting greedy.
