Default More about campground reservations

This forum hosted recent discussion about campground reservations. Here's an interesting article about the inner workings of campground reservation systems. It mentions "real time" status of campsites, which I wonder about since many US Forest Service campgrounds lack direct cell service. https://www.outsideonline.com/233047...n=facebookpost

The article is kind of obtuse, but I think that the mention of "real time" was intended to refer to real-time access via an API to the reservation system itself, not necessarily to the campground. This is good for app developers (e.g., apps like AllStays et al could potentially show campsite availability), but I don't see that it is going to make much difference to end users, except maybe better user interfaces.
