Why? Are you afraid they will all be full daily and booked by April 1?

We plan our summer trip and try to pick the most likely stops. We then book them 3-4 days in advance. Since many/most parks charge a small fee for cancelling, I want to be able to be flexible.

In 9 years, I have only been shut out once and the manager of the park got me a booking in another park in the same area for about the same $$.

We have booked over 300 stops in 9 years so far. That covers >1300 nights in about 38 states including Alaska.

What a wonderful way to live.

Hi hamguy,
Making reservations in advance has nothing to do with being "afraid". For me it has to do with getting what I want when I want it. Large site, pull through site, concrete pad, no trees (for Sat TV), grill, etc.

Everyone should remember, RVing is a special way of life. There is something for everyone.

Headed back to WA sometime in April, can't make any reservations as we don't know when we are leaving, let alone the route. Have been migrationg back and forth to TX for the last 7 seven years and try not to taake the same path. Have been as far west as CA and east to FL. 10-27 day trip. Just get the Nat Park, Pasport, Woodalls and Trail. Life books out and do it a day or so in advance. Course we stop and see lots of friends and some kin!

I believe if you are the type person who needs to have reservations set, then by all means there is nothing wrong with that. This is Your trip and no one elses. Enjoy it!

If a person feels comfortable with reservations, than so be it. I was also concerned my first few times out, but soon I also became a "Wet Noodle."

Then only time we make reservations in advance is over Holday weekends. And then I make it a few days before the holiday, since we don't know where we will be when we settle down for a night. And in all those cases I typically use the KOA web site - buckle up and pay the price - and have peace of mind.

An observation that we have made is that you could spend 30 days in one State and never see all the things you want to see. When we get to an area that we really want to explore, we extend our stay. Having reservations does not allow for that convenience especially when the cancelled reservations can cost you a few bucks.

To each his own. I like being a "Wet Noodle."


Hey! We now have a name for those who travel without reservations. We are now members of "The Wet Noodle Club." Thanks Gary.

Wow, and that's just for the campgrounds. Wait till the ticker starts ringing on all the fuel stops as well. You mean you actually need fuel to get to all these places????

Hi Wayne M,
I'm glad the phrase will be put to good use. Is the club collecting dues and electing officers? Might be nice for the club to have a rally. However, without reservations it may be difficult for the club to get into a CG.

Really. I agree. However the op said nothing more than" OW " which left me with the impression that he may not have been comfortable. I then posted how a " wet noodle " does it for his future considerations and possibly membership in the club. I will gladly accept the nomination as your president and vow never to charge any fees and always have enough spots for all who attend our rallies.
