Nothing wrong with El Cap...I am splitting hairs. I am a go but probably only one night...happy to pay for two.

If we were to do Hobsons or Faria which is the next campground further south and a bigger campground in October both are first come first serve. After October you can reserve spots at Hobsons. Two cars per site with WiFi and it's $36 in season $30 off season. Hobsons is a bit tight though but is pretty central to going North or South. Just reread your posts Rod and these campgrounds are already full? :shock:

Ok I was wondering why the campgrounds are full. It's Columbus Day weekend so if we push it back to during the week El Cap has plenty of spots.

Pes, the Hobsons is booked all week in the advanced reservation section and it looks mostly like RV-oriented. The Faria is first-come, first-served. Given my schedule is a bit in a box I can't go later into the week. If it is okay with you let's go with the El Capitan State Park as there are actually a few spots clustered together with grass for tents and flat pavement for van camping. It isn't as central but it is a nice setting... and available.

I saw the El Cap spots but they are handicapped ones. Not sure if we could reserve them. I'll call tomorrow and find out if we can use those spots.

Ok those dates have a better selection, wasn't sure what dates you were looking at. Should we just get two sites? I'm in the middle of changing banks right now so might take a day or two get money to reserve.

Yeah I saw that I was looking at the weekend earlier that had the handicapped sites

Yes, check-in on Sunday Oct 8 and check-out on Tuesday Oct 10. They have quite an availability but that campground group is at least slightly closer to the Point. Of course, folks can stay longer if they wish.

ok I'll see about getting a site in a day or two and see how much interest there is. I usually make a trip up that around that time so it's all good with me.

James indicated an interest to me (but wasn't able to log-in but could view the forums). I suspect kage will be interested as well. I will go ahead and reserve #19.
