We stay 95% at Provincial Parks, both B and B grew up camping in the forest beside that lake with nice sandy beaches. We have many parks to choose from on Lake Huron and Lake Erie within a 2 hour drive. Some parks are totally private others are semi private sites but none are stacked like cord wood like the KOA for $90 a night.
I would bet most readers here would not know what "hydro" is
since I am somewhat fluent in Canadien (yes that the way we were taught to spell in in Ontario schools in the early 50's)
hydro = electricity
so there is your lesson for to-day

The KOA near Phoenix, AZ, is $38/night, and the one at Estes Park is more, but they're both a little less with the discount card. Though our routine is changing as we add more Highland Games to our schedule, we still mostly camp at Forest Service or state 'grounds, where there are no hookups. But at some places the Geezer Pass (f.k.a. Golden Eagle) helps.

In New York at the State Parks n electric site costs about $27 and our local KOA you can get a full hook up for $35 both to me are a good deal. In both you get sites that you can be on Lake Ontario or the St. Lawrence river.

In Kansas we use the ACOE, 18-22 dollars a night. Full hook ups for the higher end, at Melvern Outlet and it's real nice. And we use Passport America when we go on vacation. Two years from now we'll get golden age and that will help a lot . Also Prarrie Band casino north of Topeka is inexpensive. Enjoy what ever you do.

Hey B and B Have you checked the prices at say Bon Echo or the other top spot P.P. Was looking at Bon Echo a spot is $138 for electric only ( I hope I was reading that wrong!!! ) The prices I find at P.P. varies on popularity of park.
$138.99 is for 3 nights electric at Bon Echo.

Where can you get that close to the beach in VA? We've stayed in VA beach, both at the KOA (gross), and the one across the street, which was wonderful, but neither was close to the beach. They did offer beach parking though if you got there at some unGodly hour of the morning.

I understand totally because both my parents and my sister were from Canada but some of the people from down south I have a hard time with there terminology and accent. I'm willing to bet most can figure it out just as we figure out what they are talking about. I had a hard time in school because of the way they spell some things and my mother would try to help and didn't. Today we are going to take a day trip to Canada and visit for Lunch and Dinner and a little shopping.
