That will show you how congested the place is. :thumbsup:

The one problem I found with allstays app. Almost all camp grounds on that app are given a high rating. In the 20 + campgrounds we stayed in last summer using that app. Only 5 had restrooms/ shower buildings that you would want to walk into and use. If your running something class C or better you wouldn't see a problem in the restrooms. So I saw a lot of bad restrooms that were highly neglected by not having a class C or bigger.
Here is my build.

Spooky.

Thankfully I live in the west and can avoid campgrounds. Especially private ones.

One campground in PA had a 4 star rating. Think of the Deliverance movie. It was real close. I even told the wife if the theme song started playing. Grab nothing, just get in the truck. The owners were older but very nice. The camp ground roads were bare dirt and very rough. Anything low slung would have not made it to any of the sites. I can tell you 100%. All the ratings were false whoever posted them had never stayed there. Next closest camp ground was 50 miles away. This one was 3 miles from where we were going.

The one 50 miles away had a bad restroom also. We were there the next night.


Now for the orginal poster. In commercial campgrounds we stayed in all had enough room to unhook the trailer and move it beside the supplied tables. or the parking areas were drive threw where you could unhook in the drive. Only stayed at four that didn't have drive threw access. Three of those were in PA. The one in WY The sites in the center of the grounds were drive threw. I chose a spot that was right against the Wind river. My front bumper was 5' from the water.

I have only stayed at 2 private campgrounds. Both were to just get-where-we-were-going. I guess some could be just great but from these reports I'd only stay at ones you guys suggest.

We stayed at Delaware State Park yesterday and it was as good as Ohio Guy said it would be. Nice laid out sites. Not many folks there because it was COLD at night!
