Bryce Canyon RV camping - Friday or Sunday check in?

We are heading to Bryce beginning of June and have the option of getting there on the Friday or Sunday. Which gives us the biggest chance of getting a camping spot with our RV? We camped last year in a tent and were surprised at how manic it became very early. TIA

I would think you're better chance would be on a Sunday. Many people are just there for the weekend so will be leaving Sunday.

That was our thinking or trying to get there before the crowds arrive Friday morning

Just me, but I would want to know for sure that I had a place to park an RV and would make a campsite reservation. It’s not like you have a lot of options if the first come first serve sites are full. I don’t think it will make much difference between a Friday or a Sunday since there isn’t a major population center within 3 or 4 hour drive.

Booking isn’t an option (we’ve been checking for months now), so it’s first come etc. Worst case we use Ruby’s or the KOA,s at Bryce or Panguitch

Worse case scenario would be staying in Panquitch. It’s too far way. Why not book a back up site that can be cancelled without penalty?

Thank you for the advice, where would you suggest that we can cancel without penalty (booking from the UK) ? We know panguitch isn’t ideal but would be worst case scenario. After visiting for 20 years, Bryce is the only stress I have when booking or getting sites

I don't personal know what the cancellation policy is at Ruby's. But that's where I'd check first.
