Hi everyone.

We are going to be at the fort for the first time in Sept. 2010.
Can anyone tell me how busy the park is during that time of year?
What loop is the pop-up sites? And how is the weather that time of year?
Thank you for your help in advance.

Sept and Oct are pretty quiet months as school has started in most places and vacations are winding down. I live in Orlando and those are the months we choose to go (along with Jan/Feb).

You can use a Pop-Up on any site, but the 1500 and 2000 loops are dedicated only to Pop-Ups and Tents as they do not have Sewer connections like the rest of the loops.

Sept and Oct are still pretty warm as it doesn't cool off until Nov or so. I would be prepared for 80s'/90s for highs and 70's for lows.

We stayed at FW the first full week of September this year in partial hook-up loop 1500. It is smaller than the 2000 loop and more centrally located to all the activities. The 2000 loop is lots bigger; but, it appears to be more quiet. It was still quite warm then and we were glad our pop-up has a/c. I was surprised how many kids were there. Must have been lots of home-schoolers whose parents wait until everyone else is back in school to take their vacations. Other than Toy Story Mania, lines weren't too bad... shorter than they were the week after Thanksgiving this year.

Thank you for your replies. We booked a partial hook up site for the last week in Sept. Now if I can only talk her into a new hybrid camper.
