Winter Reservations Worries

Lake Lavon, Lavonia COE Park, Site 43
Wylie, Texas
Highs 85, Lows 72 Cloudy, Windy and Dry

We have been trying to make reservations in Rockport, Texas for the past week. The problem we are running into is the park is either already booked for the winter or no one answers the phone or returns our calls. We are getting a little frustrated. A few of the places we called have waiting list. We are 22nd on the list at one of the parks we are interested in. We are finding that snow-birds make their reservations a year in advance at these places.  It seems that once you find a park you like, you make your reservations as quickly as possible to guarantee your site for the following winter.

We’re new at this snow-birding thing and we’re definitely learning as we go!

We just want a warm place to stay this winter that isn’t a parking lot type of park. There are a lot of those types of RV parks along the coast. We’re planning to tour the east coast area this spring and staying on the coast of Texas puts us in a good position to start our gulf coast/east coast tour.
