Drop In Reservations are always welcome and will be taken on a first come, first serve basis.  Those who have prepaid reservations have priority over drop ins – The reservation schedules are hung at each site, if there is a name with date, that means the site is reserved, drop ins must find one that is not reserved.  Online reservations must be made 7 days in advance to avoid double booking.
