I worked and hung at home. No more holiday camping for me!
Now more then ever you need contingency plans. I used to have 1 back up spot. Now I have at least 2 and holiday camping is something I try to avoid. I would rather take a day or two off work for a long weekend trip. Except for the place that I have been to a couple times and from what I can tell is never crowded.
BTW, this is part of what is fueling my desire to go backpacking. I figure on foot you can go where even cars can't. I might be wrong though. Maybe the foot traffic on the trails is even worst. But at least I wont have ATVs tearing down the road by my camp.
in my experience, it makes a huge difference. Most people will drive to the closest spot and stop so the further you drive, the better and if you have to get out and hike a long way, even better.
I think it all depends on the trail. Some trails, from what I've heard, are busy and require permits. Most aren't / don't, and I agree with BRR - the farther you get off the beaten path, the less likely it will be crowded.
paying to camp in the desert
I get it when it is at a place you cannot go to otherwise that has a beautiful water oasis or something (supai).
I don't camp. I just saw it and thought someone might be interested.

For sure, just being the peanut gallery
You should camp! lol
Next up: Probably Mt. Charleston on October 12th.
That is on my to-do list.
