It just occurred to me that snow birds aren't the issue with fully booked parks. We generally stay at State or COE parks and I believe that these parks have a stay limit of 14 days. I don't think snow birds want to relocate every 14 days. So what's with the full capacity at these parks in late March. School should still be in. Guess it's all those darn retired baby boomers (like us) on the road.
Won't give up the search, there's gotta be something out there.


Covid campers. This year, more than any other I can remember in a decade, is almost impossible to get into a SP on a whim. They are booked out for months. I know some folks on here say they continue to wing it with no issues, but that hasn't been my experience at all. Part of the fun of owning an RV is spontaneity. Not any more.

Agreed. Back in 1987 when we started RVing you could just about wing it all the time. Those days are long gone. That definitely takes some of the fun out of RVing. Stealth camping is the way to go now if you want to be spontaneous.

When we camped in the FL panhandle, the snow birds/homies that dominated the camp ground took off north right after the Saint Pattie's day blow out.
