I always make reservations before leaving. I like the security of. Knowing we have a spot when we get to our destination. If it is a long trip with a night or 2 on the road to get there we have made use of Walmarts, Cracker Barrels or TA's along the route. As for food. I shop at home and pack right in the . Meats I have frozen I the deep freeze that I put in the tt freeze. I always turn on the tt refer a couple of days before we leave to be sure it is cold. Haven't had any problems, yet ( knock on wood ). When we get where we are going I will pick up fresh stuff as needed. Good luck on your your trip. The Ozarks should be beautiful in the fall.

Thanks very much for the advice. I didn't get to travel very much growing up. Now that I am 57 and single, I look forward to seeing this beautiful country of ours three to four weeks at a time with my loyal Labrador puppy. I enjoy meeting new friends and learning from them. And I understand that a simple sandwich or bowl of chili next to a campfire under the stars can be scrumptious. I am getting excited!

We make destination reservations and Fl winter reservations a year in advance. Never know how far I'll drive each day so will call ahead about an hour or 2 before stopping for the night. Never had a problem. If on the interstate just may stop in a road side rest area. Never have used Wally World and always prefer a CG.
I pack a cooler for the road. Can always find a restaurant on the road. At destination I find a grocery store and purchase all but staples that remain in the 5er. Always have snacks and easy stuff for until the day after arrival at destination.

Do CG reservations require a non-refundable deposit?

Most have a cancellation fee.
Most state parks require full payment for reservations.

For our trip we had a pretty strict schedule and timeframe. Because of this I made reservations well in advance. That being said, I think there were only one or two stops on the way that were completely full that night. If we had a more flexible schedule we could have easily played the reservations by ear.
