Cabin space should be a-plenty. We even have 30 rooms on hold at the Super-8. The most limiting part of our capacity is actually the amount of food we can prepare in the kitchen, given the size of the ovens and stove.

If you want to camp officially in Prince William, the NPS will steer you to the Oak Ridge Campground, which is in a different part of the part, many miles from the Getaway site. If you just want to set up a tent on a lawn in the midst of the Getaway cabins--I'll have to check and see if that's okay; if so, it's probably a lot easier to get forgiveness than to get permission. But if you do (or if you use cabin space instead), you should probably register as an all-weekender or almost-all-weekender. That'll cover both sleeping space and breakfasts, neither of which are available to daytrippers.

The most important thing about advanced registration is that we will have food for you. We need to know how many people will eat at which meals in order to make sure we have enough food, and given that food is our limiting factor, you should DEFINITELY register in advance.
