Not used the recreation.gov for rv but have for rental cabins. Some of those limit you to three nights, so wife and I have separate accounts to get more days, but doesn't always work out.

I use it a fair amount for cg reservations but it is hard to get good sites unless you stay away on weekends. That's when I like to stay there. They charge a fee to make them and also a $10. fee to cancel but that's the way it is most everywhere.

The America the Beautiful pass is a great deal. It costs $10 and expires when you do.

At 75 expire is not in my game plan. I don't know what I have started in this thread, but tomorrow I will go hunt groundhogs, to clear my head.

Watch out Back Pasture Grizzly, I will be out there with my .204 tomorrow.

It is against the rules in many state parks to double book using different members of the same camping group [husband/wife, father/son]. We found several people we had met over the years who clearly were there when we got there and still there when our 2 weeks was over. In Florida the rules say that is not allowed and the first year we tried it was the year they clamped down and threatened to cancel the reservation for weeks 3 and 4. The rule says you have to vacate the park for 1 day and then can come back for another 2 weeks. We were told by the park manager to book the first 2 weeks skip a day and book another 2 weeks. Then somewhere during the first reservation to check with the office and based on occupancy demand, they would consider waving the skip day so you didn't actually have to leave the park. By making the skip day on a tue or Wednesday it was very unlikely that they would have people stacked up wanting a site. Anyway that was the work around for the extended stay.

That ended the game for about 75% of the 30 odd number of people who had been routinely staying for 6 weeks or longer and as out of state'ers were paying a ton during the Jan/Feb/ early March low season in Florida parks. We figured they lost well in excess of $20k and ended up with numerous empty sites during these months. The group mostly went to the Gulf Shores area in Alabama where you can stay as long as you want.

You may be able to get away with it [depends on the park manager] but you aren't fooling anyone. Its just depends on if they choose to look the other way. The federal reservation system will allow you to book the back to back reservations under different names and accounts, but you risk having your reservations voided when you try to register for the extended weeks.

So, in other words, there are no problems if you "play by the rules".
