Four years ago, we tried for 2 weeks at 5 AM Pacific time, to get a reservation at Bahia Honda, without success. Toward the end, I relieved Merikay in the pre-dawn duty but did no better. At 4:59:45 AM, 8 or 10 spots would be available, but when we submitted our reservation request, at 6:00:15 there were no spots available. We made reservations at the absolutely wonderful Long Key state park instead. 6 months later, we mentioned our failure to the folks next to us at Long Key. They said “oh, didn’t you hear about the scandal in Bahia Honda reservations?”.
It seems that a Florida resident had hacked the Florida state reservations site. Each morning, his hack would award all the available sites to him, at half price for Florida residents. Then on his website, he would resell them at 100%. The state discovered this delightful scam, when people started contacting the state websites to cancel their reservations. All of these cancellation requests were for sites allocated to the clever young Florida hacker!
YIKES!!! What a frikkin scam. I would not be surprised to find that some form of that scam still runs at these parks today. It seems impossible to get a site most of the time.

Thanks for the video update of Bahia Honda campground. Last June after several failed attempts to reserve a site here we finally scored Site #15 for the two weeks leading up to the 2018 Memorial Day Weekend. We are making this the first stop of our full-timing life on the road. Having lived here in South Florida for more than five decades I’ve seen my fair share of how destructive hurricane force winds and rain can be. I was relieved to see in your video that our site was still there after Hurricane Irma.
Safe travels during your European explorations and hope to meet the two of you somewhere on the road if and when you return to the US.
Whoo hooo! That is an AWESOME site!! You are going to love it!
