Buy a cheap screen tent or EZ-Up to pitch and leave it there. That's what we do when we are scouting for campsites. Post your paid receipt on the post and go enjoy your day.

Leaving the next morning we thought it wise to let the camp ground ranger know a thief stole our chairs. He went into his back room, then returned and asked...."Are these them?" It turned out someone thought we were gone for good and turned them in at the ranger's office. Irene and I with egg on our faces, thanked the ranger.

I think a cone stating "Site Paid For" placed on the parking pad is a better idea.

If you leave a chair or item at a campsite for the reason of saving the spot, then pin a note explaining you will be back and date the note.

This thread has me thinking to make a laminated sign that fastens on top of a cone that indicates "Site Reserved" or similar.

This seems like the best solution to me. A lot better marker than a lawn chair.

Or maybe "Site Occupied". Otherwise someone might think reserved means you haven't gotten there to claim it yet?

Bonrea, thanks for asking the question! We usually have a car with us and just leave the motorhome on site...but I don't think we'll have that set up when we go out West next spring, and I've been wondering how to deal with this. I'm kind of hoping we'll start towing our car instead of me just following in the car.
