Exactly. Parks won't stay as they are. They will upgrade and adapt. Having said that, electric vehicles charge at the rate the user wants them too. Tapping off 25 amps on a 50 amp circuit will charge a battery...over time.
If you are in a hurry, go to a supercharger or DC fast charger.

Already campgrounds across the country are putting the welcome wagon out for EV charging as another revenue stream. PLUGSHARE already has 100's of them on the app. Prices vary according to the location. They are essentially selling a charge service. Many are charging 10 - 20 bucks flat rate, depending n the car as of course different cars have different sized battery. Most of us EVers bring our EVSE's with us and can plug into a Nema 14-50. Its not the fastest charge but we are still early in the roll out of charging infrastructure for EV's (or at least in North America, Europe is way ahead of us.)

Utilities will have to step up to the plate. Or go out of business. They have plenty of time to adapt and power is getting cheaper to produce all the time.

Way cool!
This should create a lot of (electric) RV motorhead (Top-O-The-Hill-FIRST) folks.
But how does the RVer that always reaches for the "Bridge Too Far" on every vacation make 600 to 800 miles per day?

After 500 miles musk promises a 30 minute charge at one of his mega chargers will add 400 miles range to the batteries......so you could drive all you want.

That's great for the long haulers!
But will the "power" be governed to control the gi-normous acceleration?
I also wonder about heating systems. AquaHot-like?

I suspect the software will control the acceleration like it does in existing EV's. And my guess heating and cooling will be also similar to existing EV's. Our one EV uses a heat pump system. The other uses resistance heat and an air conditioner. Its a small cabin so I suspect it won't use a lot of power to keep it warm or cool.
