    Default Roof Top Tent Rally, James River SP, VA

    Looking forward to it! I'll be coming from CT. Looking to arrive around noon on Friday.

    Question, are dogs allowed? I see the park allows them but I want to make sure the event is cool with having them as well.

    You sure made it hard to find the link to register for this event.
    What is the attendance looking like?

    How late can we show up on Friday? I want to plan to attend this event but would like to know if it would be an issue to show up around 2130-2200 due to my drive from Raleigh NC after work on that Friday the 20th.

    We'll try to make it like motel 6 and leave the light on for you. Stop at the first RTT on the left coming down the amphitheater road, that will be the camp host to guide you in.

    Default Coffee!!!!

    The weather is looking great for the event this weekend. The park livery is still running for anyone that wants to paddle for an hour or two down the James River. There will be a BYOM (bring your own mug) coffee spot both mornings. If you want cream and sugar bring that too but the coffee will available. Probably set up by shelter 4 which will be in the area of the vendors.
