People have been talking about overcrowding at state and national parks seemingly forever.

Now they are trying to do something about it. Actually, there have been a variety of solutions tried over the years, this is just the latest.

I've got no problem with reservations... as long as they are available for everyone.

At some of my local Connecticut state parks, people "work" the system all the time to essentially have campsites virtually all summer in prime spots. Every few years the state parks try to tweak the system to prevent that, but it is almost impossible to get a prime spot if you don't know how to "beat" the people who are working around the system designed to, well, prevent that.

Heck, there are regularly threads in this forum about "working the system" to get better spots at prime times.

If a new reservation system helps to insure more people get a better experience, AND help reduce damage to natural areas, then it will be good.

Just be assured, people will figure out how to work the system to their advantage, and in a few years we will have new forum threads with people complaining about the latest "new" system to prevent people from working the system.

Very early in this thread I called it a game only to be corrected by those that know more than me. I have seen the results of the keyboard jockeys working the system for many years to push ahead of others.

About the crowding; the parks were mostly set up years ago when the population was much smaller but little has been done to increase access.

With the fact that many get covid and never show symptoms ( a symptomatic) one cannot claim with certainty that they never had covid.

Well you can be pretty sure. Especially if I never got sick, and no one around me ever got sick. Pretty sure I didn't have it.. Closest I got was after the second shot. I ran a fever for several hours.

Overcrowding has been a problem for years during peak times, but Covid drove people towards State and National Parks, purchasing tents and RV's. We hoped that those people will miss the "beach" and this will end, and used RV's will show up in droves. This is not political, it is not about our "freedoms" it is about managing crowds.
Before Covid we always went to the huge RV shows and talked LOUDLY about the cost of RV's, how they don't save money, and all the problems that can happen on the road hoping to discourage new people. Joking of course...but we actually did it.

Im starting to think some people dont understand what "A" symptomatic means. It means you can get covid and have no symptoms.
