The older I get the less likely I am to camp on a holiday weekend. I'm also told I'm grumpy.

Everywhere just gets too crowded for me.

At the county park we stayed at over the Memorial weekend in MN the park was full by Friday afternoon and emptied out by Monday afternoon. We made reservation in January and we got the last four sites an hour after they started taking reservations. Most of the the county and state parks are full every weekend and you need to make the reservation several months in advance if you want any chance of getting a spot. Monday thru Thursday you can get any site you want.

That's a good thing about MD and PA State Parks. Both have an on-line reservation system. Our reservations were made back in the late Fall. I can reserve up to a year in advance in MD and 11 months in PA, which I usually do.

State parks in MN also can be made a year out. County parks are anywhere from the first of the year to only three months ahead. On those you better be online or on the phone right away or you won't get a site.

Kids are still in school this week in many northern states. I think that's the reason. We did a shakedown this weekend at the local SP. It was about 25% full. Last weekend it was about 50% full. Next weekend it Father's Day. Might be something about being too close to it??

Not sure why Dave posted that info ? Florida State parks have reservations.

I know the campgrounds I've got reservations are in CGs that gave very few spots left. Payne on Allatoona in Georgia in 2 weeks had a few spots left, but it's not one of the best on the lake, but we wanted a waterfront site. Gulf State in Gulf Shores Alabama was almost full when we made reservations a few weeks ago for the week after the 4th of July. Then we are back to Allatoona at Sweetwater CG... It was filling up, but you can still get a waterfront site as of this past week.

Going to Payne is a joke for us. It's less than a mile as the crow flies from the house, but we wanted to just relax and have a place we could leave the boat in all week. Even though we're so close to home, we're not at home if that makes sense. I'm still working that week, so DW and DD and DS get to hang out, play at the beach and we'll do some evening boat cruises during the week when it's nice and calm.

Hey, if the CG is nice, what's the difference a mile or a thousand?

I've got a camper that hasn't been used since April and a nice CG that's 15 miles away. Care to guess what I'm planning? Yep, exact same thing. Pull her out, setup, go home, get the company car and just use that as my home for a week, maybe two.

So it's not a joke. At all.
