While I know hydro is electric to Canadians, my first thought every time i hear/see it is always water.

Yes but do you know why we refer to electric as "hydro" ? it comes from the full term "Hydro generated electrical power" Water turned turbines to generate electricity, but we also use nuclear power (ours is one of the safest systems in the world I must add) Your lesson for today

Our favourite Campground Inverhuron is beside 8 Nuclear Reactors (Bruce Generating Station) and we still refer to it as Hydro. In fact the Electric Company in our city is Kitchener Wilmot Hydro.

I believe we pay the most for camping in Ontario. Looking at the cost in Florida what is a decent monthly cost for a park that is geared to seniors and has a little space on your site?

Cost is all over the place. We ended up joining a membership resort and have loved it and the access to coast deluxe resorts. My favorite is Shenandoah crossing. Had hot tub on individual sites lol

Thanks for the hydro info, I of course thought water because hydro has always meant water.

Camping like everything else has gotten expensive.

As the op asked about full hook ups, I generally pay about $100 a night to camp with sewer. I like to downgrade to a W/E site and save another $10 a night. The $10 is worth me toting the sewage in my tote.

And technically it still does. It's just referring to electricity generated by water. It comes from the majority of our electricity in this region (down here by Windsor at least) being generated by Niagara Falls.

And it's not so much a Canadian thing as it is an Ontario thing (and maybe Quebec). I've confused people in Alberta before by referring to hydro.
