Why Popups not allowed in some camps?

Can someone tell me why in some campgrounds they do not allow Popup Campers???? I understand some place like Yellow Stone because of bears but the cost of Texas????? Would like a reasonable explanation, not just because they don't like the looks of them.......
Thank you. ....... Sorry for the typo...... It's the coast of Texas......

I'd guess it's that answer you don't want to hear. Just like some campgrounds don't allow RVs over 10 years old.

Not sure what you mean by "cost of Texas".
Are you talking about private campgrounds or public campgrounds?
The only public campgrounds that I know of, that ban soft-sided campers, is Fishing Bridge in Yellowstone.
Even Yosemite allows soft-sided campers.

Heck there are Class A only campgrounds. ?? Probably some tent only campgrounds They who own the park can set the rules. Just the great USA.

I think he may have meant "coast" of Texas.

Correct on the ďresortsĒ. We have stayed at one that had a minimum length to keep out pop ups. Think it was 25 ft as you checked in.
