We really enjoy the Texas State Parks and have had a couple different experiences.
One "let" us drive through the campground before coming into the office.
However, most of them helped us pick a site when we come in and gave us a registration receipt. They would let us change to a different one - if we wanted - but asked that we call them so they didn't assign it to someone else while we were setting up. We could come up later to get a corrected receipt.
