    Check your computer's calendar. If you're having a battery issue, it may not be right.
    TO verify, are you getting secure web pages that don't load properly, because the security certificate is invalid of not signed?

    Yea if your CMOS battery isn't right your time may be wonky. I've seen that happen all too often. Check your pc date and time, and as me turned above certificates.

    I take some kids to a local campground every year after baseball. It's close by so I just go to the office and reserve. This year I must use Reserve America and pay their fee.
    Just bad.

    the Florida one says I can call to make a reservation 8am-8pm, so that's what I'll do.

    I use reserveamerica.com every week and never have a problem. I find when I call, the site I was looking at was already taken so the PC method seems to work best for me plus they give me 14 minutes to really decide if I want it while it holds my reservation.

    I have problems when I use my iPad or iPhone, so I have to use my laptop to make any reservation.

    I must admit. I will be using them in the near future. I want to take DS and DD to a site in Payson and have to use RA to make the reservation. I will post my experience when it happens.

    We use RA almost exclusively since up to now we have camped in only CA state campgrounds. I've never had a problem reserving a site online. The fee is $7.50 to reserve, and if we cancel more than 24hrs ahead of our arrival time, we get all our $$ except for another $7.50. Considering the way campsites fill up in So.Cal., I usually just reserve sites and cancel if we end up not being able to make it. We consider any cancellation fees a donation to the State Park System. [LOL]

    I like RA because they email me a copy of the reservation with the site #, directions, etc.. on there. So when we pull up to the ranger station I can just give them info off my phone.

    I know some people have an issue with the 'convenience' fee but I think it's reasonable since it's only $7.50 and most of our trips end up being around $100 for two nights. Plus I don't have to spend time on the phone setting up the reservation- I can look at the online maps and see exactly what's available in real time.

    To me, I feel it's a necessary evil. The campgrounds here in New York also fill up fast during the summer. I also like the fact we can reserve the a site we like if possible. And as long as 9 months in advance.

    The fees here are $9 for the RA reservation but if you do a "walk-up" at a state campground, where we usually camp, they have a $6 registration fee. So by using RA to reserve a site, we actually only have a $3 RA fee.
