I think its simply a matter of the smart campground owner perhaps encouraging a small rig to use a smaller site, leaving the larger one open - it increases my potential customer pool. That said, however, if there is a site that pop-up owner is in love with I'd accomodate the 'bird in hand' as the prospect of any additional demand for that site is purely speculative.

Most of our public parks require a tent or RV be on the site if it is rented. In other words, you can't rent a site for a week and only show up for a couple days. Of course that doesn't keep people from parking the rig on a site for a week and only using it for a couple days. I used to see that a lot at the EAA campground in Oshkosh. Folks would bring the RV in weeks in advance of the convention to get a prime site. After setting up they'd then go home, returning only for the actual convention dates.

Here in Washington State there are a number of first come first serve State Parks one of which is our favorite spot. They have a "No saving sites" rule that is enforced. You are not allowed to pay for a site and park a car in it until your friends show up. Sites MUST be occupied at night so you can't bring your RV in on Wednesday, pay for the site and leave it empty until you show up on the weekend. A very good policy.I have seen the Park Ranger give the site saver two options, receive a $128.00 citation or packup and leave. Most leave (-:
