It’s camping season in Texas. And, already, all the campgrounds near me are fully booked every weekend for the foreseeable future. People tend to cancel their reservations occasionally, but since there’s no notification system in place through the park service, the only way to discover this is to regularly visit the website, then look at the schedule for each potential two week time period for each potential campground. It a tedious process and takes up quite a bit of time.
So, I created a script that will regularly scrape the campground availability from the park website and post it in the table below. The last time the page was updated is shown and all weekends are highlighted in green. For each day and each campground the total number of non-primitive sites (left) and primitive sites (right) are listed.
