When it comes to camping, the earlier you make your reservations at your favorite campground, the better. As many campers discover, campgrounds often fill up quickly during the summer season. The best time to make camping reservations is just before spring, especially if you plan to camp on a major holiday weekend. If the campground of your choice is open seasonally, you’ll want to pay attention to when it reopens.
Advanced reservations also allow you to get a prime camping site, depending on what amenities you like to take advantage of. Water lovers may want to camp near lakes, hikers may choose to be close to trails—if you book early enough, you may be able to select your ideal location.
