Just checked and for this weekend 3/4 of the state parks within an hour drive have an electrical site available. For 4th of July weekend almost half within 2 hours have an available electric site. I don't think I've ever seen that 2 weeks out from one of the big 3 summer weekends.

This weekend, Mill Creek CoE campground, booked Jan 1st. July 4th weekend, Mt. Gilead state park, also booked 1/1 =)

For the big weekends I book well in advance, but other weekends through late fall I'll just see what's open in a 2 hour radius with electric if the weather is nice and we don't have scouts/baseball/choir/etc going on.

WE usually camp in spring and fall. In March we went from Pa to Texas. That was before the big jump in fuel prices. I am pulling a 26ft TT with a Nissan Titan diesel. Our fuel costs for the trip was over $1,700. Now it would be almost twice as much. We won't do that trip next year if fuel prices don't come down. I think many people will forgo the long trips and look for something closer. We booked a forest service campground in Pa for August. We had no trouble getting a site with water and electric.But that was coming in on a Sunday and leaving on a Thursday. We can make the trip with one tank of fuel each way.

Well here is our real world experience. Starting in N. Florida we've camped in 7 spots (one future cg with reservations), had zero problems with our first choice.
Left FL, camped in one NF spot in N FL, two COE cg in AL, one private cg in AL, a county Fairground in TN (Escapade) and now in KY COE and moving to another KY COE for the 4th weekend.
Just about every place had plenty of open sites, even thru the weekends.
So once again I have to say that this so called shortage is limited to the east coast, especially the NE and maybe parts of Cali. I don't know about OR and WA.

I suspect all of those states have onerous regulations that force campground owners to quit. I have seen blog posts from one in Cali who said he was pulling his business out of the state. That leaves fewer government CG to supply the demand, leading to cg being booked solid.
