I pulled into Seminole Canyon State park a while back, and guess what, it was booked. The ranger let me stay in the day use area for one night. Great ranger. When I walked around that evening, there were only a handful of campers camping in the numerous “reserved spots” . I make it a point to go on line and cancel my reservation if I am not going to show. BBNP sends campers on their way back home all the time with no spots available, “reserved” and 20% are no shows, camp site just sitting there empty, sad.

I don’t know why camp grounds aren’t taking deposits. If the site isn’t canceled 24 to 48 hours prior and it’s a no show the deposit is forfeited.

As Larry said, deposits are one thing. But maybe there should be a cutoff time. If you don’t arrive by X:XX pm, and haven’t called to say your delayed, your site will be given out on a first-come, first-served basis.

That’s what I’ve been saying for a long time. This has been a problem for a while now not just because of covid. We’ve seen many campsites sit empty and reserved while other campers go without.
