    Yes, December books up early, especially for Christmas. For those dates you would of had to make reservations 499 days out, or August 21, 2016 to be exact. But keep trying as people tend to cancel starting about 60 days prior.

    Oh, yeah. Trying to get Christmas and New Years now would be impossible on the first try. Hire a travel agent so they can keep checking for you many times a day. People do cancel.

    If you still over 365 days, do you have to CALL the Fort to book... can't do it online?

    We are looking at Christmas 2020 - and I already have it marked in my calendar to make the reservation in August of 2019! It's a little nuts, but it is what it is. I hope some of the re-checking or TA strategies work out for you! Good luck.

    I was able to book a tent campsite for Dec. 22-Dec. 28, 2018. Not my ideal scenario, but my own fault really as I previously booked, then cancelled, then changed my mind again (and kicking myself for not just keeping the original reservations). I had to plug in different dates to see what was available.
