RA has taken over the national forest reservations with a 9 dollar non refundable fee charged for online reservations starting the 1st of sept. of 2009.
Same registration as I had with the old recreation.gov and the system is exactly the same.

COE and reservations

We have just returned from a 6 week tour which included several COE parks along the Mississippi River. Walk-in sites have been no problem this trip, but I think that minimum three day reservations and more walk-in spaces for ALL weekends might help the problems. BTW, our only reservations about the Missippi River campsites was that the all seem to located between a major train track and the river. River vies is wonderful, but the all-night train traffic was very bad. Seems like train engineers are sadistic RV haters. 2 Oclock the the morning with the only crossing being into the campground does NOT rate a half dozen or so blasts on the full set of horns!! Especially when the engines are past the intersection and even with the RV parking. (Grant River, WI)

I tried to get a res in Tenn park last weekend. No go. Same for Illinois. First come first served. Not a good situation for a 45 footer.

I have not had any particular problems with ReserveAmerica or Recreation.gov either. It is nice to be able to just give them your phone number when you register at a CG, and they have all your information immediately. Our problem is that when we are wandering, we usually have no idea where we will be when the weekend arrives. Seems like our only choice is to get in a walk-in on Wednesday or early Thursday, then stay for the entire weekend whether we want to or not. If there are things to do in the area thats OK, but if there is nothing but trains going by in the middle of the night, its kinda bad. I did spend a lot of time on our last trip just watching the Mississippi roll by the campground and fighting mosquitos. I think COE has a special breeding program for their own species that are crossed with vampires.
