Here in Minnesota, Sandy and I try to camp as many weekends as we can. That would include holiday weekends.
We see our camping season as about 26 - 28 weeks long (Mothers Day weekend to Mid-October weekend), so we take advantage of any weekend we have available. Our first season (2008) with the Jayco, we camped on 14 weekends.
Last year, we camped 15 weekends AND we took a 10 day vacation to go to the Black Hills in South Dakota.

See, you are camping with the "crowds" after all this weekend! Enjoy.

We have only had the TT since July 10...but try and go any chance we get...holiday weekends included...BUT...with 3 boys in sports, free weekends are not usually part of our vocabulary! Will try to do some nearby weekends this fall so we can grab a few minutes around the campfire and get the boys to their games!

I try to take advantage of holiday weekend camping as it allows me to have more days off while consuming fewer vacation days. For example I can get 9days off (away from work) while only burning 4 vacation days.

We really enjoy planning our trips with the holiday at the start, that way we can enjoy a little peace and quiet after everyone leaves in a mad dash.

We aren't retired and would like to camp on the holidays. However, the last 3 times we tried it we either couldn't find a spot or we took a spot that was poor and crammed in with other folks.

So bottom line...now we take a Friday or Monday off and go on our own long weekend.

I go out, when I can get a spot reserved.
But, that is when what I call, "the rookie campers" go out. Some people only camp the holidays and that's it.....

I paid for it, I will play with it any time I want!
