Laurel Hill SP, SE of Pittsburgh. Look at the amp rating on the site detail list. I assure you the box shown in the 4th picture down is a 30 amp pedestal and has 30 amp receptacle and breaker.

I am sure you are correct. I was at Caledonia state park near Gettysburg in June and those were still advertised as 30 amp.

And your information about people drawing too much power - just reminded me of one of our camping trips - There were tenters in two 30 amp sites behind us. The two sites were full with 5 tents and 4 ezups with fans blowing 24/7 in each tent and under the ezups. They also had crock pots, electric griddles and electric skillets. There were power cords running all over the place. They kept tripping the breaker on the pedestal. I have never seen tenters pull so much power in all my camping days.

Looking at Dingman's, who has posted the park being so full lately they had to turn people away. There are not so many 50 amp sites, so I wanted to to have the option to use 20. I am prepared to just use the battery to camp a day or two, but I don't think they will let me camp without a powered site. They are the nearest National Park to me, and I just got my senior pass.

Got it thanks. so at this place, if you could get a 50 site, those have the 30 amps also, but the other electric sites are only 20 amps. If you can't get a 20amp site, call and ask them about whether or not they have non powered sites that are suitable for your camper
May open up more choices for you.
Though with us, we have to have power......battery alone just does not cut it anymore.😃

Get a full range of good quality adapters.

I have hit a couple of sites in GA that did not have 30 amp, but had 20 and 50 Buddy of mine had the 20/30 adapter but did not have a 50/30.

I ALWAYS use my EMS/Surge Protector even on 15/20 amp branches and even at home. I currently use a portable on, eventually it will be a hardwired version.

I have a whole bag of old adapters that got thrown in to the sale of my pop up in 2005. If I go to Walmart and photograph each size prongs to match up would I know what they were? They are little black rubber block like adapters with different prong and plug size openings, I have 3 diff I think. And by the way, I learned to never turn on the air conditioner on the extension cord with my pop-up, when my son tried it in the pop up, he totally fried the cord. I guess we were lucky nothing else got fried!

You're over thinking this one. You'll be able to tell by looking at them. 15/20, 30, and 50 are all completely different plug configurations. The only choices you'll have are 15-30 and 30-50 in both directions (male to female and female to male). In your case, you'll need to make sure that the 30A end is female. The adapters you'll need should look like the figure below for 30A on one side, with the prongs on the other. I'd get one with 50A and one with 15A prongs.
