I am usually not bothered by any other campers. Frequently there is only one or two RV's within several miles of me.
There is a reason these things are called self contained.
I grew up tent camping and backpacking. I bought my first RV at age 50. According to my mother I started tent camping at age 6 months. I really don't recall my first trip.
Dad always looked for a flat spot near a creek. We got our water from the creek.
By the time I was 10 my mother developed a fondness for campgrounds that had water spigots scattered around every few hundred feet. She also liked having a store where she could buy us kids an ice cream or a Popsicle one in a while.
We will be taking a trip in the MH for about 5 weeks in mid July to go from Yosemite to Nashville. We will be staying in RV parks along the way, usually for a single night.
Since 2005 this will be the third time I have had any hookups.
The number of people camping near you is inversely proportional to the number of amenities available.
I still like backpacking the best, but DW has had both knees replaced and can no longer walk very far. The MH is for her.
