Adapter for 50 amp service?

We're going on are first trip to a cs that has 50 amp service. I have a 30 amp rv plug. Do I need a adapter for the 50 amp service?

First thing I did when I got the camper was buy the 50 amp and 20 amp adapters.

They aren't very expensive, but they give you options when you need them.
We found a couple of places that had 50amp service but not 30amp, and they were more than happy to sell you an adapter for $30, or rent it to you for $15/day.

it's much easier to call the campground and ask if their pedestals have outlets for both 50amp and 30amp.
most places with 50amp, that i've seen, have 30amp on the same pedestal.
