Just a word of advice to new travelers. I am a seasoned traveler and I learned a very expensive lesson on my very first trip ever. We paid for a campsite for a week. When we arrived I paid the full amount, not really knowing what I was doing. It took only 2 day's to realize that we were in a place we really didn't want to stay. For many reason's that I won't go into. Suffice it to say that we could not get a refund for the rest of the week that we paid for. I lost $70 on that one. I never book any place for more than one night. If I like it, then and only then will I pay for more. Most places will not give you a refund. Keep that in mind. It is also very seldom that we make a reservation. If you do (make a reservation) then you're on a schedule. Should you see something along the way and would like to spend time there, too bad, you must keep going. When we go on trips, we just roll along and at about 3 or 4 o'clock, we start looking for a place to stay. Don't worry if they're full, just go to another. We have never had a problem finding a campground. I'm sure I will get flamed by someone on this forum, but that's the way I feel and I'm sticking to my story.
