God willing we are going to be back on the road again after being stuck here since mid November. My wife's father passed on at 95. Then the ahh bad step mother started kicking up trouble about land jointly owned. $600 wasted on a lawyer.Then my F350 burned and the insurance company took months to pay up, then the wife's Toyota was hit by some women who swerved out of her lane and hit it. Parts shortages kept in the shop for 8 weeks!
But now we are go on Tuesday, just a shot shake down to a nearby FS camp, then Eastbank COE followed by Silver Springs SP.
Speaking of FL Parks they have the best parks but a terrible reservation system. I had to lie about my address to register, even tho I used to registered. And even when it works it makes the rec.gov system look good. That's the system they tossed out to bring this abomination in.
Anyway appoints back here then off to TN and the Escapade. Then north to the Upper Peninsula and MN north country, tentatively

I haven't found the new site particularly difficult to use, booked 2 weeks for Xmas at Henderson Beach, just missed a site at Gamble Rogers beach side, in the 30s it took me to click reserve someone beat me to it.

May your travels be free of trouble and enjoyable. Those "bots" that have been mentioned are part of the problem with reservations disappearing. I've noticed that some reservation systems are now using the verification that you are a real person by clicking on photos, etc. I don't mind the extra 2 seconds it takes to do that because it keeps the reservations free of problematic bots.

Florida actually dumped ReserveAmerica.com, not Recreation.gov. Both were run by Aspira until a few years ago when the .gov site contract went to Booz, Allen, Hamilton. I do prefer ReserveAmerica's reservation system better than Recreation.gov or Florida's.
