There are CG's similar to what you want. They are usually smaller.
Have Water, Electric & Sewer. Some even have nice treed sites.
No swimming pool, No Swing Sets & No Office.
Built on the honor system. Put some $ in a locked box & there's
an 800 number if you have problems. Usually quite a bit cheaper
than conventional CG's. Stayed in one several years back near Spring Green, WI.

Last i checked we all have preferences and beleive it or not many people don't care for dogs, cats and kids when they travel. I don't have any problem with those who think differently using other campgrounds. Don't understand a person thinking different to me suggesting assisted living. Guess freedom of thought and opinion is policed now!

When it comes to campgrounds, one size does NOT fit all. I know some very successful ones that cater to adults and not children. Many do cater to children, which is great. Some are designed especially for dog lovers. There are campgrounds exclusively for seniors, and I've heard of some that are for nudists and others for those in the LGBT community. The good thing is that we can choose the ones that suit our individual preferences. No need for a campground to try to be all things to all people. And no need to ridicule people for preferring one over the other.

If we as a society truly believe in freedom of expression, we must accept it in all forms, even those we may deem as repugnant.

I was actually thinking that a lot of these comments sounded like a Michigan State Park! Holly State Recreation Area has these lovely and large private sites with level pads but most are completely secluded with vegetation from other sites. So much more relaxing than being on top of everyone else in the campground (for my taste)!

If anybody bitches, just tell them to walk down to the recruiters office and raise their right hand!!

I did my 4 yrs in the 1970's when we were called "baby killers," so I don't begrudge you your benefits.

OMG, this is a massive pet peeve of mine.

Last weekend was halloween weekend at a local campground, and it was completely packed. People flying around 50mph around the campground.

I like the guy in his tuned up diesel truck and beefed up turbo that insists on driving in low and 2000+rpms so they can impress everyone with their exhaust sound and fan whistle.
