In previous years returning campers had a chance to purchase more sites after the right of refusal period finished but before they went on sale to the general public, will this happen again?

No, the policy was originally put in place in order to encourage returning campers to fill the vacant space when the campgrounds didn't fill up. Now that camping is so popular and sites are in such high demand we feel that this policy was giving the returning campers an unfair advantage and limiting the opportunity for new campers to come along.
