I'm looking at camping for one night in one of the various public land campgrounds near Flagstaff. Very few take reservations, I'll be staying on a Friday or Saturday night mid-May, and won't be arriving until the afternoon or evening. Will this be a problem?
Do these campgrounds fill up usually?
I'm just overnighting on a road trip, so looking to be 45 minutes or less off the interstate 40, which seems to be do-able.
In my previous experience I've found campsites that don't take reservations either aren't very busy, or they are extremely popular and they have no problem filling it up.
If anyone camps in the area and has some recon beyond the official website info, I'd much appreciate it!
