My tent site is booked. I asked for and received a rain free site.

Doc, I have been practicing my mountain riding here in flat SW Ontario. Don't expect to see any improvement

After having to bail this year, I managed to successfully make it through the 30-day waiting period and booked our room for next year around 8:45 this morning.

Can't wait! (now just need to get back on the bike...)

Paulie,
How much is a tent site? Are there different kinds of tent sites? Can I get one on the ground floor? Are there any that are handicap accessible? Can you park your bike at your tent? Do they have tents for rent?
