Sure, just call Elkhart campground and tell them you are with the Heartland rally when you make your reservation. Then post here that you are registered.

Good morning Lyle:

Hockster here.

I called Bob this morning to make my reservation for September, and he told me to sent him an email.
I have tried to send him the email using the http, www, and using neither of them and it keeps coming back invalid email address.
I even went to their website and used that address with same result, invalid email address.
I have tried this using my phone, iPad and my Chromebook and have received the same message, invalid email address.
I have Comcast Xfinity for my WiFi service.
I even shut my Xfinity WiFi connection off on my phone and used my Verison service, same thing happens.
Please check this out and post what is happening, because I don’t believe Elkhart knows there may be a problem.

Lyle, I found this caution on a search.

I have found another source that says this is an unsecured site, besides the last post with screenshot I posted.
Bob wanted me to make the reservation in an email, which I’m not able to do.
I have huge questions about this and why he would not do it over the phone when I called.
I have made my reservations over the phone in the past.

Thanks for your persistence, Gary, and sorry I'm just now responding. I'll double check with Bob, but agree this sounds weird.

The Commander and I will be there. Arriving the 27th and departing the 2nd. I called the campground and they said we didn't need to make a reservation just to let you all know. :)
