While sitting around the fire last weekend, in the rain I might add, the discussion moved to what an ideal campground would be like.. If we could design the sites, say what activities were available and what amenities might be available..

We came up with sites that had some privacy, but open with some sort of a view, good water and electric, level, a pond or lake, activities for kids and some adult activities in the early evening, garbage pickup, pizza and wing shop and wi/fi. These were a few I remember..

What would be your ideal campground ?

Far away from any interstates and cities, with lots of trees and grass. Power, sewer, & water hookups. All other hookups to cost extra. All kids amusement things to be far far away from any camp spots. A place to run dogs.

Wide enough that we can unload handicap scooters out side toyhauler door.

Im sorry, did you say "able to fit your 40' 5th wheel"......just kidding, but three people said the same thing or did one person say it three times? LoL
As for me, the ideal is one where everyone is Happy!

The preferred RV park would have spaces not crowded together, dependable utilities, all weather surface throughout and mostly level.

Other nice amenities would include ample maneuver space for those with maximum length RVs, pet area and security if located in dubious locations.

Well there you go. No need to ever ask any questions on this forum, they have all been asked already. Just check the archives. (Sarcasm)

Large level sites with gravel, at least one fully grown tree dept between sites for shade and some privacy. Fully stocked camp store, clean bathrooms, in-forced campground polices/security, laundry, Campground boarding either lake,river,ocean or forest for hiking.
