Concrete pads, long enough for camper& truck.
Wifi,with good signal
paved roads though the park
And campers not on top of each other.
Level is very important too

Good question! I hope the OP is designing the ultimate campground.

Water hookup at the pad. Other hookups are nice and would not be turned down, but I would rather get water at the campsite pad than at the dump station - I will pack water in if I know the dump station is the only option. I am not normally phobic, but yuck. I always picture someone cleaning the stinky slinky with the potable water hose.

Wifi is nice, cell service is even better as DH and I need to keep in touch for work - I can camp close my house and not have cell service due to the terrain. (I don't count the Green Bank Observatory ban in this as you know going near there that there is no cell service.)

Not having neighbors able to look in at me while I eat my cornflakes - I like Oak Hill campground in Wayne National Forest as the sites aren't necessarily far apart, but are angled in a good way.

A place for my dog to do it's business that is designated as such, has little doggie baggies for those that forget to bring one, and a place to throw away waste right there and wash your hands.

Wow, I think I'm in the minority here.


In a CAMPground we look for, reasonable (in price, security & surroundings), area, scenery, peace & quiet and finally close to level.

Much more than that and ill spring for the extra $25 a night to stay in a motel.

Any CG within an hour of 4pm. That when we start thinking about stopping. $25 or less. Most always find one. If struggle to find one we just stay at Walmart.

We just look for a quiet, clean CG with large grassy sites. Paved roads, and paved sites make it too hot. Full hookup are a plus, but if there is a nice bathouse close, That's fine too. Lakes and rivers are nice to setup beside, and I like to either have a mountian under me, or a ocean in front of me. We don't camp much inbetween. We aren't fancy campers by any means, and like rustic CGs.
In the mountians we like National Park CGs with no power, and no water on the campsite, No phones, no computer, and we cook outside, so a fire ring is a must. We say we camp in the mountians, and RV at the beach.

I like your statement : we camp in the mountains and RV at the beach, I guess we feel the same way

On top of things mentioned, nice clean bathhouse, not high on many others lists I see. Yes I use the RV to shower and we even have a tankless WH but if there is no sewer then I can fill the grey tank with 1 long shower! No issue in the bathhouse.

Enough room to not be right next to neighbors. And trees, we avoid parking lot style parks, we prefer to be in nature.

Trails to walk and hike. Pet friendly and people who use leashes and pick up after their dogs.

We need that and 40 feet (38'4" really) and a place for the toad. Anything more is gravy. Anything less will be out there where space requirements aren't an issue and Gila Monsters and RV Mutants peacefully coexist. Is that pinion I smell?
