I always used to go camping without reservations, and it always went something like this:
Shade? If you're lucky.
Power? Ha, fat chance.
Power and water? You're kidding, right?
Beachfront? Okay, you're in Overflow 'C', about half a mile from the beach.
I learned my lesson a long time ago.
Now, with our schedules, we make our plans in the spring, where and when we're going, so when the reservation system starts up, we have everything planned out. It costs a little more, but we're pretty much guaranteed to get the weekends we want in the sites we want. Especially on long weekends, the campgrounds are packed; we go for walks and we can count on one hand how many vacant sites are left. We don't think we'd be able to do the spontaneous thing anymore.
