We use our seasonal site about every other weekend. That comes to about twice a month from April through October. Maybe 14 times a year. That's a lot more than we ever went camping when we had something to tow.

In our campground, that's about average. There are plenty of sites we have never seen people at in two years. Others are full time and spend the entire summer at their site. (lucky them) I can think of another couple that only come up on Sunday or Monday and leave on Thursday. They really have the place to themselves.

Life gets in the way. We also really watch the weather. If it's going to rain, snow, or be very cold, no reason to go camping. Love the seasonal site though.

I don't like camping during the hotter months so much of summer is out unless I head to the beach. I do like camping in the fall.

I hear you! Nothing beats Fall Camping. Love those cool nights, and brisk mornings.

We camp most weekends starting about March as we leave the TT at camp behind locked gates.
In Mid-July thru pre Labor Day, not so much. But then hit it again til Thanksgiving.
We will be pulling it South in winter some year soon.

We take a break in August/September when it's like 106 outside. Although the AC works great, we don't like being trapped inside between 10AM - 10PM to avoid the Texas sun.

I've promised my husband he can have a weekend at home for every weekend we're away. Personally I could stay home M-F for work and NEVER be here on the weekend and it would suit me just fine. Sometimes it is real tempting to just stay at the park on Sunday and camp out for a whole week if we are close enough to drive in to work. I haven't convinced him of that yet...
Yes, we are spoiled by our cool summers and don't like it even in the mid-90's.

If you ever want to venture to Colorado in August, we know places where it's usually 40-50 at night and 70-80 in the day!

We are trying to use ours at least every third weekend from May to September plus a couple one week trips when the kids are off school. We use ours for both 'camping' at provincial parks and as a 'motel room' at KOAs when doing the tourist thing. We don't have any problems camping during the summer here but we do avoid the long weekends when the loud partiers like to camp.

We already have13 nights camped. We have it at Lake Stephens now. We are there till June 21st. I am actually closer to work there so as soon as school is out next week we will be there a lot. We try to camp at least every other weekend. But where it's at now we will be there though the week and I will go to work from there. We bring it home on the 21st of June and leave on the 26th for Myrtle Beach travel park come back home on the 5th of July
