Just spent an hour on reserve america, where I've booked camp sites for several years. It was not a fake site as I could look around at campsites, etc. I went to book and it said I am required to put in an SS number as part of a Federal code to catch deadbeat parents for unpaid child support....THAT IS NOT ME!

Point is, I immediately closed the page. Is this normal? I would never give an SS number to reserve america. What gives?

I jsut tied booking a site and got to the payment page without being asked for a SSN.


Yep, actually drove to all of these places---in the last eight years. Missed Rhode Island and New Jersey.

You've used them in the past and only now did they ask for this information?

At what point in the process did they ask you to enter your SSN?


TV = 07 Dodge Ram 3500 Dually 6.7 / QC-LB / CTD / G56 / 3.73 / 4wd / EBrake
5er = 12 Keystone Avalanche 330RE
Toys = 08 Kawasaki Brutie Force 650i 4x4 ( x2 )

And I tried Clinton Sate Park and it did want a SSN. Might be a Kansas State thing?

NO! Never! We've been making reservations via Reserve America for years and have never been asked for SS #! Something is fishy (phishy in computer language!)!

Soon as I clicked BOOK THESE DATES. I've tried it again and same thing. Here is the text it gives me:

Your Social Security Number is required to make this reservation according to Title 42 of the United States Code, Section 666 (a) (13), requirement of statutorily prescribed procedures to improve effectiveness of child support enforcement.

The more i read, it looks like its a KANSAS thing? Full text below. I guess I can drive a few miles more into Missouri

Your Social Security Number is required to make this reservation according to Title 42 of the United States Code, Section 666 (a) (13), requirement of statutorily prescribed procedures to improve effectiveness of child support enforcement.

Due to the implementation of the new Kansas Outdoor Automated Licensing System, the Kansas Department of Wildlife, Parks and Tourism is now required to comply with certain laws relating to the collection of social security numbers.

Title 42 of the United States Code, Section 666 (a) (13), requirement of statutorily prescribed procedures to improve effectiveness of child support enforcement, requires that social security numbers be collected of any applicant for a recreational license, which includes licenses, permits, stamps, tags or other issues of the KDWP.

In addition, Kansas Statute Annotated 74-139, licensure, certification or registration by state authority; applicants requested to provide social security number, requires the applicant for original licensure or renewal to provide their social security number.

The KOALS system requires your social security number to be entered only one time. Once entered into the system, the applicant will save the information for use in all future transactions. The applicant's social security number is not printed on the confirmation nor is it displayed on the screen when a new reservation is made. The social security number is held in a secure database and will only be available, upon request, to the Department of Social Rehabilitation Services for the purpose of child support enforcement or to the Department of Revenue, Director of Taxation, for compliance with K.S.A. 74-139.

Did you call and ask them directly? There is no way I would input my SS# on a site!
