My wife and I have Been camping for 32 years and unless we go to a special event like Mardi Gras or Memphis In May where all the camp grounds will be full, we don't make advanced reservations. We have never had trouble getting a spot. There are two exceptions state and National parks> If you will be camping in one of these make reservations if possible. They usually don't require a great deal of advance but the reservation will save you some dissipointments. Also if you ahave a 40ft rig andd will be camping on a major weekend like the 4th of July reservations may be worthwhile. Happy Camping Bill
When traveling we project our stopping spot and call ahead on our cell phone before 3:00PM and do not have a problem as most people do not stop until after 3:30 or 4:00. For our destination we usually have reservations, especially if we can reserve a specific site that we have picked from a previous trip or is reccomended to us. Since we have a '40 ft we also preview the site before going to it. Ft Wilderness at Disney has some real tight spots for instance.

We sometimes make reservations if we are going into an area that we know is busy like Pigeon Forge, TN.
We also use the cell phone and call ahead when we know where we will stop for the night. This works well and gives us some piece of mind.
