Hello Herbie and welcome to the Fort Wilderness Forum.
On to your questions:
1. What Are the best non-preferred loops or sites ? I didnt feel like paying more money just for cable tv hook-up that we would rarely use, if at all, so we just got a regular full hook up site. Maybe theres more to it ? Our family is partial to privacy and peace and QUIET ! A large site would be nice too. We still wouldnt mind being at least somewhat close to trans,pools,comfort stations, and the store( we are bringing all the bikes). I would like to be by the lake but I think that they are preferred loops?
"Best" is subjective. Our favorite non-preferred, full hookup loops are 1200 and 1300. Specifically, we like the sites that are near the Comfort Station shared by these two loops. The sites are large, typically well shaded and as quiet as a non-pet loop would be. I believe the quietest full hookup loops are pet loops 1800 and 1900 as they're the farthest from roads (bus noise), pools, Campfire Program, etc. Back to 1200/1300. We feel these loops are a good compromise between quiet and being within walking distance of the Meadows Trading Post/Bike Barn/main swimming pool. The bus stop is close too and there's a nice little playground which our kids always enjoyed. Finally, yes, the loops by the lake are preferred loops.
2. By the way, What are the preferred loops, pet loops, full hookup loops, tent loops etc.
Preferred loops (full hookup plus cable tv) are 100, 200, 300, 400, 500, 700, 1400.
Pet loops (full hookup) are 300, 1600, 1700, 1800, 1900. Sometimes other loops are designated pet loops temporarily.
Partial hookup (water, electricity, no sewer) loops are 1500, 2000.
Full hookup, non-preferred, non-pet loops are 600, 800, 900, 1000, 1100, 1200, 1300.
Guests can and do tent camp on all loops but tent campers and those with pop-ups often use the partial hookup loops.
3. What are the least desirable sites/loops?
Very subjective. I personally don't like the 1000 loop because it shares a Comfort Station with the 900 loop and it can be a fairly long walk to get to it. Others, I hope, will chime in on their preferences.
4. I reserved our site online and I didnt get any conformation on site # . Just a conformation saying we had reserved a full hook-up site for the duration of our stay. I did say I would like to be close to comfort station and trans. though. Should I find out ahead of time what site they have us in so I can run it by some of you here?
Fort Wilderness doesn't get the reservations from Central Reservations until a few days before you arrive so no one knows what site you'll get until just before you arrive. All you can do is make them aware of your preferences and you've done that. Be sure to reiterate your preferences when you're checking in...sometimes they get lost in the shuffle. Just say something like "Did you receive my request to be near a Comfort Station and bus stop?". If you have a loop preference or specific site request they'll note that too but cannot guarantee that you'll get any of your requests.
I hope this info helps.
