Why not a split. I think that if the camper wanted to cancel his reservations close to the arrival date then the owner should get to keep 50% of the deposit. Most parks I see advertised state that Full refund if canceled within xx days, or No refund if cancelled within xx hrs (days) of arrival. Now if there is some sort of disaster or large emergency then I feel that the campground should return $$ on un-used days.

Sounds reasonable! I've been in campgrounds that do that (refund deposit if cancelled in xx time).

We typically make reservations ahead of time only when we are going to a town, and intend to remain there for several days.

If we are just stopping overnight, we generally drive until a certain time of the day, then start looking for an overnite site.

I've yet to get to park in a Wally World lot, or a roadside park, although I have friends that do it all the time.

The way I figure it, if we were travelling via automobile and had to make an overnight stop, we'd have to pay for a motel.

Guess I'd use a Wally World if I were in a place where there wasn't an RV park, and we were too tired to continue.

A reputable resort/campground will always offer a refund if not the entire cost at least partial compensation.
There is allot of rhetoric can be said for the park that knows you will return within minutes of heading out to your new site. Return for a refund they are depending on you not getting.
I suggest you always pay with a credit card that will stand up for your rites. It will allow you to contest the payment. Just the fact that you where allowed to pay with a credit card of a specific type, states that they have to honor the contract with that company before they will receive their funds.
I agree there are times of special interest like holidays or special events that may demand special consideration or heightened greed on the occasional hostelries part.
I do not do business with people that think you should jump through hoops to give them money.
You do not owe them or any one else a living. I consider the act of denying a refund blatant greed. JMHO

Not returning a deposit for at least one day is always acceptable. Deposits are another story altogether.

I wonder how analogous this is to how the airline business was letting people make reservations years ago, before the airlines tightened up their reservation procedures.

People who weren't exactly sure of their travel plans could call up and make several reservations, while planning on keeping only one of them that fit their plans well. They would then count on not being charged for the unused ones. If a two-way ticket was purchased and only half of it used, you could cash in the other half, or use it for another ticket.

These days, if you reserve it you also have to pull your VISA card out of your wallet right away, a lot of ticket fares are non-refundable, and if you DO get some compensation back it might be only in the form of future tickets and not in money.

I have to agree though, based upon the original post by Freddy, if there are people waiting to get into the park and take your place, it does seem lousy to not get all or most of your money back. Maybe they should only charge a small annoyance fee in that case.

The keyword here is "reputable."

I believe that pubs like Woodalls, etc., need to start making it clear which campgrounds will and will not refund fees.

Sorta like a 'handling fee.' I could agree with that.
