Yes, you can put your tent on the concrete area, but then you have no way to stake it down.

If anyone's interested, I saw those same sized storage bins marked down at Home Depot for about $4. They're Rubbermaid (which I also use for our camping stuff; I think they last much longer than other brands, and $4 for that size is really good.)

Hi there. I'll answer for DW since she's out giving my money to Wal-mart Yes, the refrigerator sits on a shelf that is part of the camp kitchen. Before I opened it, I thought the shelf may be too flimsy for the refrigerator but it is very sturdy. It fits perfectly, well maybe a little overhang but there's no way it will tilt over.

We haul everything down in a minivan with a luggage carrier on top and bike rack on back. Mostly the tent, screen house and lounge chairs go in the luggage carrier. I remove the rear seat from the van and one of the passenger seats and that gives us plenty of room for hauling. DW has a picture or two that she can post. She has them in her photobucket so when she returns, I'll tell her to post here.

Thanks very much for the info. That's pretty helpful and gives us an idea of the quality of the camping kitchen.

Is your luggage carrier soft-sided? We bought one recently and decided on that kind because it looked like it would hold more and have less wind resistance. We were amazed at how much we were able to shove in there, it was basically everything we needed for our trip to FW.

Actually, I didn't even go to Wally World...just Lowes and Kohls...
which I do more damage anyway

Back to the topic on hand...here's our cargo carrier, it's a Sears Sport 20, hardsided since we do a lot of camping (not just at FW) and it's held up nicely over the years:


In the process of organizing and loading:


And here we are fully loaded (I think this one is at Stone Mountain):

Here's another set up we had a few years back.
This was in the 1500 loop too. I can't remember
the site number but if you look behind our old tent,
there's a tree in a very bad spot. I think Carol knows
this site number. If it wasn't for that tree, it would be
an excellent site for an extra large tent and screen house.


I have an inside picture of our screen house on this day too
but I dare not post it...it may make it to the Hillbilly thread

That's probably 1506. That site is narrow and that tree was in the worst place possible.

Is it going to be taken to FW and left outside the Tab while you're in the parks?

I'm worried that mt tent will be too big to fit two on my site. I'm camping with friends and they have a 7 person tent and we have a 8 person tent with the atttached screen house. ( Found this on sale at Target for $29 regular price $116) Our kids are too wild to put everyone in one tent but I worry about whether or not both tents will fit.

We had 2 tents and a 30' TT on 1 site but that was in the 200 loop.

I don't think you will have any problems in the 2000 loop. Also, in the 1500 loop there are a couple of sites that will fit the bill but I don't remember which one's they were. If you notice my 1501 site, the Coleman tent and screen house just barely fit. The Coleman is a 9x12 and the screen house is a 15x15 and it was over the edge a few inches. Now in the 2000 loop, we were able to put our Copper Canyon, which is 15x12, and the 15x15 screen house on one site with room to spare.

Ive been a little concerned with site space too...we have a 19'x10' tent and a 1o'x10'(I think) screen room, and I really WANTED 1500, but we might have to settle for 2000.....Im not too worried as long as I have a cart by then...but heard the 1500 loop is so much more filled with vegitation and has a woodsier feel since the clearing in 2000. Guess we'll see what happens.

Actually, last October the 1500 loop looked very barren too compared to what it looked like a couple of years ago. Not near enough shade for my liking. Those sites closest to the bus stop and next to the comfort station has the better shade. All the others are comparable to the 2000 loop.
