Even with our 40' motorhome our first choice is always a public campground - national park, national forest, COE, state parks, county and even city parks. We enjoy natural surroundings with plenty of space. We really dislike sitting outside and having to look at our neighbor's sewer connection.

I go with whatever strikes my fancy. Just got back from Fort Wilderness, heading to a nice casino RV Park in Louisiana next week. Then next month will be spending a week in Cade's Cove Campground which has no hookups.

I concur about James Island. We lived on the island for 2 years and that was our weekend get-a-way location.

Leila.....resort every time, the more stuff the better.

In my travels it seems that the Chains like the word "resort" when in reality they are really Campgrounds.
I consider a Resort a place where folks own their on sites and many own golf carts to go a visitin'

There is a difference between a CG and RV resort, MONEY! Give me a CG anytime, as I don't see much tangible difference anyway.

We stay in resorts. I remember the first time we arrived back at the S&B after being gone for six months. I was cleaning the Class A. My neighbor came over and ask how our "camping" trip went? I smiled thinking to myself, three TV's, ice maker, DVD, CD players, Computer, furnace, air conditioning, etc. I said, "we were not camping we just decided to live somewhere else for a while".

We like both - at the right time. Spend most of our nights in campgrounds or boondocking, but also enjoy a brief stay at a "resort" periodically. Usually works out fine for us as we keep our expectations low and therefore often pleasantly surprised.

"...as we keep our expectations low and therefore often pleasantly surprised..." works for us. We only go to an RV park when we either have to wash clothes or dump.

Great topic. I when I want the wilderness and trees then it's the campgrounds. Some are rough and a near the lake. When I want mucho amenities and no kids it's a resort with a bar but I am happy without one.
