issue is that the camp MUST designate MH Only for a site so built. Sadly, not all camp operators are up to speed on rv design and needs.


Seems to me that on sites like this is might be advantageous to have them on BOTH side, that way you do not limit who can use it. If done during initial build or infrastructure upgrades, seems like a minimal investment to make the site always available.
The camp in Spring Branch, Tx. did it that way because of the hill in front, So did we because of the drop off. There was no way to pull in a trailer and get the Tow unhooked and around. To place hookups on the side where a trailer could also use it would be in the way of slides, risk to damage to unit and pedestal.
Placing hookups on both sides works for buddy sites But where is the $ sense in it? A 15' sewer hose reaches under. $500 wont do it, for that, then theres the issue of door to door when they arent buddies.
Many A MH ers have a ' class' concept to towable units. This is clear in the many MH Only ( Flat Bus Front Only, no Truck front Renegade types alowed) Its their right, same as an HOA has rules, To us rules limiting type, age, ( of unit and occupants) smack of some idea of supremacy due to a type of unit, , dare we say bigotry.?
We are so glad to have sold our camp.

Everybody thinks they need a fire so big it smokes up everybody for a mile around.
So big a world, so little time to see.

The wife and I have been camping long enough that most places we go we've already been there and know what to expect.

BUT,this one particular CG that we visit often, renovated the sites using chip and tar.....we got that stuff all over the inside of trailer.

Another thing that leaves me questioning.....why do some back in sites have the hookups on the living side of trailer ?

all in all we usually get what we expect given we frequent the same handfull of parks most times. i guess if i could change something id space things out more and add more bush between sites.

I know this is a bit of an old topic, but after getting back last wek from camping a big one for me and my wife is people willy nilly walking through your site to go to another location on the grounds. We never do it, always use the roads, and treat a site as we would if a house were there.

Too much pavement, high density, not level sites, difficult access, too loud, no privacy, no shade, high cost. Otherwise they are great.

I agree with many others, music, tv's etc are a real problem.
No one wants to hear someone else's music.
Campgrounds should stop this quickly.

We requirED leases on cats for the safety of the cat, control its faeces, and for our wildlife. A cat is a hunter. It will kill anything it can and bring it home. Tell me about your cat that only brings home rodents and not birds.

When I was a kid on the farm, Kiowa co. Ks., we had a colony of Western Kingbirds. People from colleges and all around came to study them, but we also had to control rodents in hay, grain, buildings. My pappys ( BS ag, Friends U, Wichita ) solution was bull snakes, no cats except the indoor house cat, we would catch every bull snake we saw and release it in the hay stack. Bingo! no mice, lots of birds.

Not a good solution in parks or camps with campers unfounded, uneducated fear of snakes.

Now that's something my cat and I have not had a big problem with. Most parks seem pretty strict about leashes, except on cats. 🙂

"I've seen it all" is a pretty bold statement.
Have you seen bad acid trips, stampeding elk, a knife fight, two grizzlies fighting over your cooler?
