Yes....we saw the notice at the Goliad State Park last weekend.  They said they are upgrading the reservation system software.

Guess this applies to the Recreation.gov site too since I can't make a reservation even though it tells me I can. I'm going to call tomorrow.

I guess they don't have the money for a proper upgrade.  Can you imagine if Amazon.com told everyone that they couldn't buy anything because they are in the process of upgrading their system?

It's government, not a business. They may charge you money and and provide a service, but they don't have to make a profit, make it easy for you to use or be efficient.

Amazon exists to make money. There is incentive because of that.
