Welcome to the world of RVing along with a few million of your closest friends. Last minute camping at a desirable location anywhere near a holiday or peak season without reservations will open your eyes to reality. Even 6 months in advance may not be enough. Have been going to a State park in Fla the last 4 years. Nice place right on the Gulf with miles of white sand beaches. Even in Feb the place is booked full most of the time and for sure forget weekends without a reservation. Reservations can be booked something like 10 or 11 months in advance and after getting skunked in year 2, have booked our time the day reservations opened. By June or July you'd be lucky to find one of the preferred sites.

Personally we try to avoid holidays and peak seasons, but then we are retired and can go when others can't. One of the better parts of retirement.

Enjoy the new camper.

How about posting your findings on your SoCal Community Forum for others in the future - and provide in this thread a link to that community.
