We are new to RVing, and need a bit of advice.

When we go on weekend trips, we expect to make reservations, so no problem.

When we go on vacation:
- We plan on "wandering" for 2 weeks at a time.
- We really don't make definate plans.
- We go in spring and fall.

Are we going to have trouble finding camping sites available during these times?

This year we are getting a late start, and plan on being out during the first two weeks of June. Will we have trouble this time?

Thanks!

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

I would say that normally you can get a site without reservations but if you plan on camping over a holiday , I would book in advance.

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 generally plan our trips and make reservations, even in the spring and fall. But, we have found that usually they would not have been necessary.

However, we have a big rig and many places are limited to where we can get in - both length and height (we are 13'4" high!).

But we often change as we move along in the trip and then adjust accordingly - again making reservations.

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.

ENJOY!!
