RV SPOTS – RENEWALS AND WAITING LIST FOR 2017/2018
The Executive has set a deadline of April 30th, 2017 to renew your RV spot on-line. Any renters from 2015/2016 who do not renew by the April 30th deadline will forfeit their existing spot and be required to enter a waiting list if they wish to renew after that date. Due to popular demand, for 2017 the EDKRA is also expanding the RV area to add some additional spots for full-year rentals, as well as for out-of-town “weekend” guests. Accordingly, we have created a priority waiting list for those interested in obtaining a new 2-year rental. Click here to renew your spot or be added to the waiting list.
