Reservation System - Cancellations
The reservation system is designed for profit and not park utilization. Excluding primitive, the system showed no availability. Staying a primitive site, we surveyed Ziebach, La Rose and Howard to surprisingly find sites unattended both Friday and Saturday. Weather was good both days. Clearly there is no incentive for campers to cancel if they are not going to arrive.
The refund options if cancelling a reservation need to be improved. There should also be a 'release' time for no shows unless prearranged.
Unfortunately, utilization is being compromised due to refund/cancellation policy, lack of camper courtesy for no shows, and poor design of a reservation system.
