Just curious as next year we are putting together a bigger budget for camping to do more at Non TT campgrounds.

We are strictly USFS and State parks campgrounds. RARE we stay commercial. Sure the USFS and State parks don't have full hookups. Sometimes you get electric. So we are good for 3 days.
And since I still work, we are limited to where we can travel to in a day from Denver, Colorado. BUT, there are a lot of nice places around here.

We are full hookup pull thru people. Our trailer is literally our second home for months at a time. After 30 years of tent camping we are not giving up any convenience.

Pat, you should try Raystown Lake just west of Lewistown. Seven Points. Been there twice very nice need to reserve early around holidays. Last time I went was only $25 night.

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

Your dates are messed up in your signature? Unless you did that for a reason?

We camp at least 1 week a month in our t21QBHW a frame. We prefer state and national parks ! We seldom have hook ups ! We feel the atmosphere in the National Parks superior to some of the gravel filled commercial lots ! Oh, and 50 per cent off with the senior pass doesn't hurt either !

We split our time between Thousand Trails parks and anywhere else that will fit us and is convenient to where we want to go. I'm a slave to sewer and electrical hookups:
1) no sewer tote.
2) and our electric use seems to be astronomical based on the couple of single early overnights that we've attempted.

For Fulltiming, I budget $50/night for campground stays. We stay 1-2 weeks at non-TT parks and try to stay 3 weeks at TT parks (we upgraded to an Elite membership a short while back). The first 6 months, I averaged between $30-40. This year, I'm losing to my average due to Disney's campground and now I have a Key West reservation at Bluewater Key.
You have been charged for electric usage? New to me. What kind of CG might do that?

I don't think that reads like it does in my head- the few times that we've overnighted and stopped early, I've ran out of battery power before morning. Meaning, we use an astronomical amount of electric to survive on a single or simple dual battery setup.

But, I do know of 1 campground that charges weekly rentals for electric. We haven't stayed there yet, but we may in October. I just haven't decided how long we would stay.

LOL, I forgot you are real "Travelers". That just gave me pause when I read that.

Safe travels...
