Well, I would rather know I am guaranteed I have a site than not have one at all. I definitely don't like the idea of first come first serve If I drive several hours(with no reservations) Especially on a holiday weekend. I guess I am too used to reserving specific sites. Usually the first time at a CG we walk around with a map and circle the sites we like so next time we know which ones we will reserve.

We do a lot of Tx state parks. When we use one we haven't been to before, we usually drive the place after we check in and, if we find a better spot, we just stop at the park host and they radio the gate and make sure no one has booked that spot. Then all you do is set up camp then go back to the gate and update everything. I find if you come in early on Tuesdays you pretty much have your pick of sites. I usually avoid weekends since I don't like people all that much. And water. Idiots are drawn to water. It's a proven fact. Come to think of it....I need to move to the desert.

Thanks, we would more than likely be arriving on a Friday evening/night after work and most of the time places are pretty well full by then on a holiday weekend. If it wasn't a holiday weekend I wouldn't worry about it too much.

Unfortunately, at that time, you're going to be stuck with whatever's left over. Which park are you going to?

Haven't been there yet. We had reservations in a few months, but my wife got hit head on by a drunk a few weeks ago and we canceled them. Hopefully we can try again sometime later this year. Let us know how it is.

That's horrible! I hope she wasn't hurt too badly and is recovering well.
