Camping Reservations – Do you need them?

You have spent weeks planning and packing for a great camping trip, just to arrive and find the campground packed full! You should have checked ahead if time and made a reservation. Seasoned campers are already aware of this and plan ahead. But, if you are new to camping or just camp once in a while, you should be aware that many campgrounds can fill up quickly.

We have our favorite campground and have a favorite campsite, problem is that it seems to be a favorite of many campers. Knowing this we try to plan ahead and make reservations as far in advance as possible. Having reservations avoids the hassle of driving around and around trying to find a suitable spot to setup camp. If you are going to a new campground try and research as much as possible to find a good site.

The following are some tips we use for making reservations:

  • Plan as far in advance as possible
  • Check on line for site photos and campground maps to help find the perfect site
  • If you frequent the same campground get a map and make a list of sites you like, this helps avoid surprises
  • Visit camping forums and ask what campsites are good and what campsites to avoid
  • Scout ahead if possible

  1. I personally always reserve a place first, once you make the mistake of not doing it you will never do it again

  2. Reservations are not only a good idea but a necessity. My wife and I have been going to Asseteague Islandin Maryland for about 6 years now. If you do not make your reservations about a year in advance you probablt will not get to camp where you would prefer and will have to scramble to find another park.

  3. I strongly recommend camping reservations. Take note that majority of the population prefer camping as an outdoor activities especially during weekend or holidays. So, always think that everybody is going out. It is better to be prepared at all times, right? It is hard to spoil a family trip just because of a fault on the camp sites.
