In response to making multiple-reservations for the same night's stay - that's the problem. It's hard enough to find a spot when traveling now, with so many newbies finding RV travel preferable to staying in hotels. Campgrounds are overcrowded, and many have a 'reservation only' policy. Empty sites are a challenge to find. When one RVer makes several different reservations for the same night, other's are denied the opportunity. Decide ahead how far you want to go, how many hours you want to drive, and stay near there! Planning works wonders! Of course situations may change (bad weather, heavy traffic, etc) and cancelling a planned reservation in that instance is necessary. We would never make several reservations for the same night at different campgrounds. We feel it is selfish.

Lordy lord. People simply disagreed with you. If you took it as an attack, maybe that's Jiminy Cricket on your shoulder.

We're allowed to disagree with each other here as long as the disagreements don't become attacks.

I've seen you dish it out here before, so I assumed you could take it too. Perhaps not.

Keep doing what you do and just know that some folks don't agree with you. Simple as that.


I can take it. It was a diatribe in sarcasm and I thought it was pretty funny.

2 Retired has it right.

All you knew in the past about reservations or no reservations has changed now due to COVID.

We are nearing the end of a 6-week trip, and we have found that almost everyplace is disallowing walk-up, no-reservation camping. We've been all up and down the east coast and all throughout Florida. If you don't have reservations, you generally can't camp. Not because of demand, but because they don't want you to spontaneously show up. The Florida state parks were the worst. Generally, in the past, you could get a walk-up site the day-of, but not now. Lots of sites are going unoccupied because of this. One host told us that if the state finds that the park is collecting revenue on a non-reservable site (in other words, if they sell it to you as a walk-in) they will be "in trouble."

This is what we've found concerning state parks. Other types of campgrounds may have different policies. Point is - COVID has changed everything.

It's just Mrs. SpeakEasy and me now (empty-nesters). But we can choose from among 7 grandchildren to drag along with us!
