Wow, you guys are tough! I would have called and said I have a vehicle problem but I would be there the next day. Then call again and said I’m on my way. This way they can’t double book. To hell with them.


Which could be why they have the policy in the first place - because people wait until the very last second to cancel so the can't re-book the site.

He wouldn’t be canceling. They have their money and he has his site. Why are you so upset?

This thread should be closed!!

This is like the flip side of the coin. I made reservations in February for 4 sites at Dorst Creek campground in the Kings canyon and think it was a federal park. The reservations were for first week in July. Two weeks before this date I receive an email stating that they had cancelled two of my sites and they would refund my CC with no cancelation fee. I called the park and they said there is a dangerous tree over those two spots. I said I need four so please cancel my other two and refund me the cost. They said no problem but there was a cancellation fee. I asked nicely why as there was no fee on the other two and all were made at the same time. They told me too bad. How about them apples!

This is my point. I understand the cancellation policy.
But when covid, or wild fires or some event beyond the campers controls intercects with the plan some considerration should be given other than the standard line. Especially 3 weeks out when the site can be re booked!
