Thanks David. I agree.

As mentioned, the hosts themselves question this policy, however, they did state that their superior is the one that insist this the correct policy, and they are bound by it.

It's like yelling at the clerk at the gas station because the prices are too high.

Since the higher ground campgrounds are set to open for the summer in a couple weeks, I probably will not return there until fall, but I will get copies of the other San Bernardino Forest Parks rules and point them out to them (And their ranger, who a Sargent, not the general) and question it again.

Next weekend is the official kick off of the camping season up here in the old mountains. Normally, my first, last, and majorly inbetweens for the summer would be at Heartbar, but I noted that in the campground closest to me, the Forest Services latest spiff up and shine one, Dogwood, that one of the nicest sites on the mountain was available, so I nabbed it quick off the site. (It sits at least 300 feet from any other site, is off by itself on a cliff overlooking the entire valley from up here on the rim, and it has electric hook ups!)

Anyway, HERE is the details of my PAID reservation.

I am not charged for 2 vehicles, as the max allowed in this site is 1. In wading thru reams of government techno babble of definitions from the San Bernardino NF website , in a nutshell, a travel trailer is considered camping equipment, and a "vehicle" has two definitions, split into MOTOR vehicle, self propelled, and a "vehicle", other than a camping trailer.

Also on one screen, which I did not capture, it says this site has a limit of "One Vehicle and one TOWED vehicle".

Since the cell signal at Applewhite is 5 bars+, I have every intention of sharing this with them, on screen, direct from thier own regulating agencies site.

I am curious what they will say.

A trailer is not a vehicle.

I have a friend comeing down from Canada and they are under the impression that they will be able to boon-dock about anywhere in Maine or NH. I think they will get a surprise to find out this is not allowed down here in the states but with the price of campgrounds going through the roof Walmart parking lots are looking better and better.
