Nothing against snow birds, I envy them. But when do they start migrating home? I looking for a gulf coast campsite, preferably a state park for the end of March/early April. The popular ones (Gulf State Park for one) I've checked are booked up.
thanks

End of March can be chilly in the northern tier. That’s a bit early IMO.

It might not have anything to do with Snow Birds, I've looked into several of our favorite New York State Parks in the Central to Western New York area and they are already booked just about solid for the Summer.

ZERO correct answer!

We typically head South from NW WA in October whenever the weather starts to turn cold. Then head North from SoCal/AZ when it starts to warm up in NW WA say late April early May.

It just occurred to me that snow birds aren't the issue with fully booked parks. We generally stay at State or COE parks and I believe that these parks have a stay limit of 14 days. I don't think snow birds want to relocate every 14 days. So what's with the full capacity at these parks in late March. School should still be in. Guess it's all those darn retired baby boomers (like us) on the road.
Won't give up the search, there's gotta be something out there.

if you're in Chicago until Jan you're not a snowbird, **** that's cold!

We leave CT around the beginning of Oct, and head back up around late April/early May

Seeing as the border is opening November 8 at 12:01 am, there will be a large influx of Canadian Snow Birds.
