I do too but from a financial perspective I am almost surprised any place takes reservations. Can you imagine how much money Pinicon makes with all those extra days of people just tossing a tent on a spot to reserve it? If you want a good spot you are going to spend 100 bucks...kinda crazy.

Obviously it would be far better for the campers themselves if it was online but I have to think the park would take a huge hit in revenue.

When the campground is as nice as this one they will probably never go online for reservations. People are willing to pay the extra to camp there. I can't blame them so if I want to camp up there I'll have to either make time to run up there and put a tent down or find a friend....hint hint

I will be at Sugar Bottom starting tonight. I'm hoping the rain didn't shut down the mountain bike trails.
