Except for Wallyworld and Flying J there is not much DRY CAMPING in Florida. Here it is almost always FULL hookup. In the western states it is about 50/50. Being we have a MH with full power, water, we can do either.

Ditto here, also. You don't have another camper 10' foot either side of you, and nowhere to park the TV. National Parks including the Skyline Drive are also high my list.

Still do both but rely on a 3000 watt inverter and generator for the 120 volt luxuries during dry camping. Prefer the full hook ups though. Even with the power from the inverter, the waste tanks still need to be dumped and the convenience of the drain being right next to your rig is well appreciated.

I like it dry

I don't know, I guess we just like that feeling of "isolation" that comes with dry camping. You know, you don't have any one to rely on or blame but yourself.

Hookups - Only because I don't have a quiet generator! I DO have one, but good lord is it loud. I'll only use it in remote areas where there's no one around.

Some of the camping areas may not have space for the rig,
so we drop it off at a central RV and dry camp with the 4x4
at places where no one wants with their Big rigs. We found
that it can be alot quieter and scenic dry camping and great
to get back to a hot shower. Both is Best

Dry camping whenever possible, unorganized campsite is the best, but they are becoming extinct. Forest service campgrounds are great and there again, I prefer dry camping. In daylight hours we always use the stinky campground pit toilets, but at night we use our trailer bathrooms

I prefer the seclussion you get from dry camping, as most full service sites in my area are a little more open.
