I've seen that before when making reservations, but I don't recall exactly how it shows up on the page. You can opt out of the active membership before you make the reservation on the main site, you just have to check all the content on the page to make sure that the active.com membership is not part of your 'order'. It's a pain in the rear, but that's how the Internet works a lot of the time...

Many states use RA to process their reservations as it is less expensive than paying a full time staff for a few months during busy season. Some states, including Maryland, specifically prohibit RA from using the auto opt in to third party offers while processing reservations for their state. Rather than call RA who obviously is profiting from this scam, call yourf State Park Service and complain to them If they receive enough complaints, they will have this removed while making reservations at state facilities.

Very good point and that may be why I'm not seeing that here in NC!

We don't see it Idaho either. So far that is, but I do agree that the "processing" fee seems high. With my Inter Agency Senior Pass the fees are higher than the nightly fee.

One has to be careful as once you make a reservation on RA, there's a screen that asks you to confirm your address. On that screen it also says you're eligible for trial subscription of certain magazines (popular science is one). So, if you click on "confirm" you also are signing up for the trial subscription. If you hit "no thanks" it'll take you back to the confirmation page and all is well. BTW, you must write a note to unsubscribe to this trial before you get charged!

We have used Reserve America (as one must) for Indiana State Park reservations for a few years. I don't recall any troubles or weird charges. System has always worked smooth as silk without any concerns.

I have used this website numerous times & never any problems. My suggestion is that you use a good antivirus software & run it on your computer. It appears that you could have malware mooching off of you that may actually have nothing to do with reserve america.

I've used Reserve America for a few years now without incident, but not yet this year. I'll make sure and keep an eye out for Active.com. Thanks for the info.

No, its not malware, I've seen it on different PC's. My buddy made reservations and he got it too. Maybe it has something to do with NY parks? I think I've only used RA with NY state parks.

It is not malware. If it is a money making scheme used by RA. As I mentioned, some state park systems specifically prohibit them from including it in their contracts with RA when making reservations at their parks. Apparently NY does not prohibit it.
