We don't typically camp. We Park in RV Parks with complete facilities...beyond FHU if we have a choice...and enjoy the amenities and explore the surrounding areas. Pools, pickleball and cable TV with decent internet and nice people are what we look for. Have not yet boondocked anywhere except at interstate parking lot stops on the way to somewhere. What we really enjoy is seeing the country and the natural wonders of our national parks & monuments...and exploring history in the places it happened.
It may be different than most...but we love it. Have fun!

We hope to full time when we retire (12+ years) so it's nice to see these threads. Some of the acronyms I don't get COE for one...
I think it is army core of engineer park. That what I used it for. May be wrong. There is a thread of acronyms on here somewhere.

No. Anyone. Open to the public.

We have zillions of them. Very good places to camp.

Probably an equal mix of state, county and private parks. Somewhere around 60 days a year of camping

Congratulation to all you adventurous folks!! Would love to hook up, travel and settle whereever the wind blew me. Good times I'm sure. I have a hard time going into the unknown. Wish I wasn't. Any suggestions foe 2-3 day stays in S/E NC??

95% of time state parks and DEC parks all in NY. Split dry and electric. We camp about 50-60 days a year, for years and just had our first full hook up site 2 weeks ago. We've looked at many private parks, but were too cramped for us and the good sites were taken by long term residents. We will never go to a larger RV. Ours fits us and gives us more options for sites.
We like kayaking and fishing and waterfront is almost a must have for us. Our stays range from 4 days to 2 weeks. We never leave on a Sunday as I don't want the dump station crowds.
3 grown kids, 2 with own families (2 grandkids with 1 on the way), all live locally and they often visit when we're camping for a few days. When home our house is the spot everyone comes to for gatherings.
We talk about seeing the country, but haven't gotten past first base. Guess we just don't have enough wanderlust in us, but I enjoy reading about the adventures of the forum members who do.

I am fairly new to this but I am happy with my plan so far. Casino's in winter, resort style in late fall and early spring and state campgrounds Memorial Day to Labor Day. We thought this out and booked everything for the year with this plan in mind. In our area, resort style RV parks are only slightly more expensive than state parks in the off season but horrendously expensive in summer.

After we have our RV legs we plan to venture further and include national parks but I want to make all of my newbie mistakes close to home. I also want to get as many trips in as possible to make setup/teardown and driving/parking second nature so we are doing 3 and 4 day weekends every month this year.

Kinda depends on if you want Fresh or Salt water! Anyway...this state park guide should let you narrow it down to the things you like.
Find a Park | NC State Parks

And here's some other good places like the COE campgrounds...Kerr Lake is great.
