Texas State Parks Reservations

When reserving online for Texas State Parks, can you not choose the site # you want?
Thanks, doodler

For the most part no, HOWEVER, there is at least one that does offer site specific reservations and that is Lake Livingston State Park - there may be others, but not really sure.

Edit: Just found this article about the program:

Thanks. I did call Texas State Parks and they said you can reserve a "spot" and then when you get there it is first come first serve. It just guarantees you will have a site.

We ran into the same thing when making our reservation for Galveston Island State Park for Thanksgiving week. We are in the park and then it's first come first served. We have only camped in one Georgia State Park and it was the same way.

Wow that's a terrible policy!! Colorado State parks provide site rentals and we really like that. The one issue we had once was we messed up and reserved a site with just water and a 110 outlet and they let us switch to a full site.

This can be a two edged sword. In Arizona on a trip where you can reserve site specific sites, people who wanted to stay for a week were not able to stay on the same site. It was actually quite comical to watch every day about noon as everyone began playing musical sites. Actually it was sad. We were very lucky to have the same site all week. We had make our reservations very early in the year.

It's also hard to cancel a reservation. I have a one night reservation I need to cancel. I says I can cancel it online but I cannot find a place on their webpage to cancel it.

Cancelling is very easy. Go to texas.reserveworld.com/Home.aspx, click on "Cancel Reservation" at top of screen. Log in and a list of all past, present, and future reservations are listed Look for the reservation you want to cancel and click on "Cancel" on the far right hand column.

You can't reserve any specific site at any of the Georgia State Parks that I am aware of (unless you request a ADA site). Your reservation just guarantee's you a place to camp.

If you made your reservation using the call center then you might have to cancel the same way but it's best/easiest to do everything online
