We look for wide paved interior roads. Trees trimmed so I'm not scraping the sides or roof getting to our site. We prefer level paved site parking areas, concrete is best so the jacks don't sink in. Sites that are wide enough so that my slides and awning are not infringing on our neighbor.

Full hookups! 50, 30, 20 amp electric, good water pressure with water hook-up that is at least knee high and easy to access. Sewer connections that are actually lower than the RV connection so I'm not trying to dump uphill. Cable tv is always welcome if it is available, or somewhere that there are few OTA channels available. WIFI is always something we look for. Make sure it is good strong WIFI with adequate band width. Nothing worse than advertising WIFI and then having it not work. If you can't provide a good WIFI, don't offer it.

A pool area is always nice although we seldom use it. Keep children's playgrounds in a safe area near the edges of the park. Above all, keep it all neat and clean.

A clean and safe facility. 50 amp a plus, dual 30's is ok. Kid and Boxer friendly and big enough sights for a 35' Fuzion. Water and a dump sight at lease.
It also helps if we are allowed to run our Genny during the night if we have a power failure.

WIFI, use from the camp sight, Don't like taking the lap top up to the office

Level lots,

Wide enough sights, so our slide out, and next door slide outs don't touch

In order of preference
1) Full hook ups
a) 50 Amp preferred
b) Good water pressure, 40 to 50 psi
c) Sewer connect that is lower than the black tank discharge
2) Level concrete site
3) WiFi, that serves the whole campground with plenty of bandwidth
4) Sites wide enough to extend awnings
5) Sites long enough to park both my MH and my car
6) Grass at site for chairs, not a fan of parks that are all parking lot
7) Trimmed trees along the roads and sites
8) Paved roads
9) Fire pits

In 3 years we have spent 8 nights at private parks. We most stay at state parks. We will be spening some more time this year because of a 6 week trip. I would say in no certain order: level, clean, friendly staff, trees, grass, dog friendly, pool for the kids, a place to ride bikes, and not packed on top of the other site, and power and water. Like to be able to open the awning and set my BBQ and lounge chair.

It depends what we are doing and who is traveling with us. With a Class A, we can stay just about anywhere (and probably have). This time of year when it is cold, electric is a must to minimize propane use. If the grandkids are with us and it is warm, the National Parks with no hook-ups are great!. Most of the time, it is state parks, where hook-ups vary greatly. Traveling cross-country, we have stayed in Wallmart parking lots.
