Yet another latecomer to the discussion. While the argument of passing up on the campgrounds. There are times when it is not possible. If one is camping in a tourist area you may be at the whim of the owners as we were. We recently went to a CG in Williamsburg, Va. I wasn't about to pay the high costs of the two KOA's so I selected another private campground. They charged for all the adults over two at $5 per person and $1 for the extra car. I really didn't have a problem with the extra charges on the head count, but the car I felt wasn't needed. I didn't scour the area for others,but in that area it is hard to get away from it.
The most absurd fee that I have seen was a campground at Kings Island in Ohio. They charged an extra $1/night for shade!!The shade consisted of 1 maple tree on your lot. The guy in front of me just about came out of his shoes when then told him.
