Welcome to the Forums from Huntsville, AL!

Short answer without going to the links provided is 2 25' hoses (IMHO)

Most folks carry two lengths of fresh water hose a 25' and a 50' you may want to have a inline water filter as well.
As far as sewer hose buy two sections so you can extend them if needed.

I suggest 3 hoses. 10', 15' and 25'. The majority of the time the 10' is enough. Occasinally you'll be a bit short and need the 15'. Rarely will you need the 25. But for the extreme times they can all be linked to provide 50' of hose.

For campground with water at site, the above lengths will work well--rarely would you be more than 25' from the tap. In my case, when using Forest Service CGs with limited number of water taps, I have had as much a 150' of hose used to service a group of trailers to keep from bucketing/hauling by jug.
