    This probably won't help you, but just in case it might, I did camp at Rolling View in late September. It was car camping. On the off chance you might end up there, the sites were VERY hard packed....

    Do you have any scraps from old tents, tarps, or footprints that you could fashion into a floor? You could add grommets as needed, or maybe even throw it into the sewing machine and do buttonholes...
