The issue is that RV Rental companies are purchasing blocks of campground sites to be handed out to their renters. This is in Provincial and Federal parks/campgrounds as far as I know. Parks our tax dollars largely fund. The "fix" is in long before most of us can even get access to the booking sites. I've long been a Crown Land (kind of like the US National Park Service...) boondocker but it sure would be nice on occasion to be able to book something in a park and be a tourist in my own country.
Here in Michigan you can't rent more than one spot in your name and they started non refundable reservations to prevent people from booking many dates and then only using the dates they were available and getting a refund for their unused reservations.

I haven't seen any problems in state parks with rental companies but having state campgrounds selling out and then having many open sites because people got refunds at the last minute was a real problem.

Hopefully you guys get it worked out, our system isn't perfect but at least they're trying.

The one thing I neglected to mention above is that these spots are being bought in block. That is ultimately the problem I have - we have aggressive protocols up here regarding concert ticket sales due to scalping and I sure think this is somewhat related.

And I'm glad to hear you enjoyed your trip up through Alberta! The GF and I are planning a fair number of trips camping through the PNW this season and look forward to "returning the favour" of spending our hard earned money in the USA.

On a somewhat related note to this thread, we are in the midst of planning our 2019 trip to Alaska thru Banff and Jasper, we travel in a group of 3 fifth wheels. does anyone know if Parks Canada will allow one person to book the sites for all 3 parties for a particular nite in a particular campground? Example: campsites 20, 21,22 in campground wherever for june 10th?
