Yes, state. They said the reason was that they were after guys who owed money such as child support. But they said those guys simply come into the campground in the evening to avoid giving that info when the kiosk has no one there. They self register. So it doesn't work anyway.

I agree I would never give my social security number to a camp ground

Card numbers

Having endured credit card fraud twice, once for plane tickets to Turkey, I am real careful,with the numbers. As far as Social Security numbers, I used to be real confrontational asking immediately why they were needed. This just puts them on alert. So now I give them my first five numbers and Rita's last four. Makes it a worthless series of numbers and given with confidence and without hesitation they never know the difference. Lots better than my old line, "You don't know and you don't need to know." Works for me.

Just provide a fake SIN with the correct number of digits in it. The only way they would know if it was incorrect was if you used a number such as 0000000001.

Fake numbers

When I worked for the city, we used to have to call in for a purchase order number. Could not get one on a Saturday. I had to buy a 100 amp fuse for a pool on a Saturday. So I gave the girl behind the counter a number that matched the date and she wrote it on the ticket. As she handed me the ticket to sign she said. "Oh look, the p.o. Number is the same as the date. As I signed the ticket I said, " bet that doesn't happen very often" And I was gone, fuse in hand. Hey it was for the kids.

Rest in Peace , Yogi, You were an inspiration to a lot of us, Americans and Canadians alike. When I see a fork in the road I stop and pick it up,
Might need it for a potluck.

Indeed, Rest in Peace Yogi.
