Is there a contact name for camping reservations?  Mentioning "Model Boat Race" doesn't cut it.

Just called them, the rate is $45/night + HST plus the $12.50 + HST registration fee.  They cannot waive the registration fee like last year, sorry.

 

You can book on line and even pick your spot at:  https://hamilton.goi...p.com/Home/Home

 

Still a great deal for a campsite/park of that caliber!  :)

 

ps:  I'd book soon, doesn't look like a lot of spaces left...

Randy Rap came up with a new trophy for the furthest distance traveled called "The Little Beaver".  So far we have a couple guys coming from NYC!
