There are numerous threads asking if reservations are necessary. There are always those that reply "Been camping xx years without reservations and have never not been able to camp where I want".
How can they do that????
Timing, location, and a bit of luck. Keeping choices open can help rather than placing all your eggs in one basket. It can help to avoid weekends and actual holidays.
I've able to pick up reservations at last minute due to someone cancelling. I made my 4th of July reservations at anther beach campground and they were nowhere near impacted as San Clemente. I know people that have done a lot of traveling without reservations without any problems & other people having problems getting a reservation during summer alone for a single trip.
Great choice for "Living within my means" and camping for one...
