    Hi Daniel!

    I believe this might be my second question I can help you with today. I love answering questions about my favorite resort on property, the Fort Wilderness Campgrounds.

    When bringing your RV to the campground you will have three options for your reservation. You can choose Premium, Preferred, or Full Hookup sites. Premium are for the larger motor coaches with long concrete pads. There is no guarantee that there is space next to the pads for tents to be erected but most will have some sort of spot. The Preferred sites are closest to the marina area but they are also the oldest and their concrete pads can be shorter. The Full Hookup sites are perfect for both an RV and a tent on the same site but they are the loops furthest away from pools, trading posts etc. Even though there is distance these loops are some of the quietest and nicest in the campgrounds. They are my suggestion for both an RV and a tent.

    Tents can be rented but they are dedicated to those who are only tenting and in the tent loops. Since you are coming with an RV it would be best you bring your own for your RV site.

    Firepits are allowed but only certain ones. They must be covered pits and if you google this you can find pictures of the flyer you will receive when you check in. This shows you what you can bring.

    As I mentioned above you do not need to reserve a separate tent site with your RV site unless it is something you wish to do. The tent loops will not be near the RV loops so if you feel you will need two sites then you can reserve two RV sites and they will be next to each other. On one you can put your RV and the other the tent if you wish. You will pay a premium for a tent on an RV site so if you can get along with it being on the site with the RV this saves a lot of money.

    Let me know what else I can assist you with!
