East Tennessee area, AKA Pigeon Forge/Gatlinburg/Sevierville/Townsend not a problem here. Was just in Pigeon Forge this afternoon and it was quite busy. Not like it used to be pre covid 19 but traffic was heavy but moving and people out and about seeing the sights and shopping. Camping sites are still available from the resort high end to the regular campground.

We used COE and state parks on a June trip from Houston to Des Moines. No problem. Bucksaw sounds familiar.
Just got back from Durango and no problems. I would recommend making reservations the day before, or before lunch.

Not sure about weekends, but during the week I haven't had any trouble showing up at COE CGs around here (eastern Okla.) and having my choice of campsites. We had a cool front come through recently and the high temps through next week are supposed to be in the low to mid 80s. Come to Oklahoma, our skies are pretty much smoke free.

Slammed! Cant speak for middle of the week but weekends in state parks right now, forget it. Private parks you might get lucky and find a spot but it is very tight. Much more so than usual here in PA

In the southeast weekends at state parks or COE on the water is very hard to get. Here in Georgia there are a few state parks that always have vacancies, but looking at the website for those parks, there really is nothing that would make you want to go there.

Basically all the desirable state parks are staying booked on the weekends. We paid $100 a night at a private campground in Florida. It was on the bay, and really small sites, and it was full for the weekend, I got lucky and found a cancelation.

Don't know about the rest of PA - but in the northern mountain state parks it has been and continues to be busy.

We like to camp in the fall for the cooler temps and the colors. Had a heck of a time getting reservations and we're nervous since there will be so many campsites full and the restrooms possibly germy (camping in our B).

I've been checking out these and other state parks throughout the summer and they have continually been packed - even on weekdays.

We recreate often at a state park in eastern TN (like multiple times per week). This summer, their CG has been about 1/3 full on weekdays, at least half full on weekends and was completely filled over the Labor Day weekend.

I read lots of complaints about campgrounds being full to where one can't even make a reservation and I'm wondering if that is a national problem or just one west of the Mississippi.
We don't count because we cancelled everything for this summer due to the virus and the RV has sat under cover since last October.


Things are improving here....west of the Mississippi! With temperatures dropping into the 20’s last week, some spots are becoming available. There should be more available come November....unless there is a large, local construction job in process or we get another oil field boom.....which isn’t likely! [emoticon]

Fishing is soon to be at it’s best, the fall colors are getting beautiful in the mountains, if you hurry you can catch the elk in full rut, and local museums and our “world recognized “ Wyoming Dinosaur Center” is open. Though, the Dinosaur Center May close later in the season. About the only things that have stopped are the hot days and the local rodeos! Oh.....we also have noticeably less RV’er’s and Harley riders! memtb

Southeast Pennsylvania-our "go to, close to home park, (when we just went to get away for a few days, only place we are willing to travel this COVID-filled year), has not been even close to full this season. The people at the desk tell me it is because so many places are closed.
