For the most part, we use our camper as a cost effective means of visiting other places. If there's someplace we want to go, we look for RV campgrounds in the area. We plan trips every year just to see the USA. We also do close by camping in SP. Later RJD

Except for the last sentence you copied my previous post word for word

There's quite a large dose of it over here too.

We stay at RV parks when travelling to Rallies and attend Rallies for fun with friends.
Curious to know what parks you like to go to and what are you driving? We are first timers and have done only provincial parks thus far but will be RV Park'ing it this weekend.

I find its hard to know what good sites are in provincial parks until you get there, you have an idea but the pictures sometimes are misleading

SW PA doesn't have a whole lot of options.
Private parks are usually really cramped. State parks were better, but they keep bumping the price up and the parks are getting worse and worse. Last year the price per night went up across the board and a lot of sites were converted to pet sites making some parks pets only. What a great feature, even if you don't have a pet, they charge an extra $2 per day for the privilege of cleaning up other campers poop.
This year they added a $4 "computer use" fee as it was described to me for staying in a PA park. You get to pay this whether you book on-line or at the park. That makes a night stay $36 if you are a PA resident. This year PA jacked the price of vehicle registration by 50% to help empty our wallets too.
My friends and I like to camp most every weekend. PA has lost out on several hundred dollars so far. This year we will go to Ohio a lot. It's a lot cheaper there even if you are out of state.
Got caught this weekend though. Went to Bel Air MD, but couldn't find a park close so we stayed at Codorus park. Tiny sites. A lot heavily sloped. On the way back we stopped at Cowans Gap. Lake side sites are tiny, laid out terribly and you get to pay the poop-site fee. The other side is much better but nothing great. Only one dump station for 200+ sites so you get to wait in line. Oh, and it's in the middle of the one of the loops nowhere near the main entrance. With the one way roads you have to exit the park and come back in to use it.

Our Provincial Parks have a ranking by popularity. Low middle high. Across the board reservation fee of just under $10 and fees ranging from roughly $36 to $52 per night with electricity. Worth every penny.

We do state parks mainly but have no problems with RV parks. We are big into hiking, kayaking and fishing, so we will camp near as we can to these activities. We love the woods and nature of state parks. We love the amenities of RV Parks.. They are super convenient for us and that's what we have our trailer for. Either place we camp we have a great time because we are away from work and the everyday humdrum of life.
