I recently camped in a South Carolina state park and it had a trashy long stay element with people "personalizing" campsites with lights, fences, signs, multiple golf carts parked under canopies, satellite dishes with wires running through the grass and across roads and paths and other such low rent baggage: some sites looked like those rural slums with houses surrounded by junk. Nice park otherwise.
So I think it's wrongheaded for state park campgrounds to allow long stays, more so if the long stay people are from out of state. Turn the sites over; I don't like not having easy access to state park campgrounds in my own state because some "snowbirds" want to stretch out their stays in them. Those people should use private campgrounds.
