CG sites with decent spacing

Is there a list or a way to find CGs where we're all not on top of each other?

I hate the disappointment of showing up to a CG only to find the spacing is tight and you're staring at your neighbors stuff.

I'd gladly pay more for such a set-up it seems you never know where the good "spaced-out" CGs are until you show up.

No longer full timing, but still camping 10 days at a time every other month.

We use google maps (sat view) so we can have a good idea before we book.

Any Corps of Engineers, National Parks, camp grounds will have ample room between camp sites as well as most state parks. The resort parks are closer together and any camping at a fair ground, race tracks will be packed tight. Check reviews on camp sites at:

I do the same thing with Google maps using the satellite view.

Our first choice is always a public campground. They have the most spacing: national parks, national forests, Corp of Engineers, states parks, county parks. Boondocking will give you your own acreage!

I have to add a caveat with State Parks. Depending on how old they are, there may be space between the sites but the sites themselves can be incredibly difficult to get to or into. They didn't build very wide roads in state parks in the 30's. And those sapling then are now monsters with lots of interesting sharp turns going around them.

I do the same... google, pics of the site online, etc. But there's got to be someone out there with a blog or list about nicer campgrounds that encourage or at least avail a minimal amount of privacy.

I agree SPs, NPs, COE, have the best sites in terms of spacing. One would think the private CGs would see a niche there in charging more for the additional spacing. But nope. I think the RVing community has expanded faster than CGs, hence demand exceeds supply... during peak travel periods, anyway.

We try to avoid peak travel but sometimes you can't avoid it. We're at a SP now. The KOA across the HWY is nearly bone-empty. Hey at least the campers there have entire rows to themselves.... ha! That's one way to get space I guess.

No longer full timing, but still camping 10 days at a time every other month.
