That's often the "permanent residents" one hears complaints about. At least around the NE it seems there are a lot of places more or less like that.

FWIW the reasons folks do that is the places are not "at home" so all the at home chores are on the shelf while there. Usually there is also water in the form of a pool, pond or lake. Life tends to be much simpler and more relaxing for the visit. Relatively short driving distances make it feasible to visit often.

We bought a 1/4 acre lot in N GA moutains in an established RV park w/water & electricity. Have a storage shed, concrete pad. We keep the class A there as a routine using it like a cabin / vacation spot on the weekends, then can drive it later on to take vacation trips. It greatly increased our use of the RV since its set up and ready for us anytime.

Never heard of anyone letting there Class A sit in a permanent spot.

There's quite a few class A's at parks around us in N GA. We used our coach r 58 nights this year in between the park trips over the road to TN, NH, and multiple sites in GA. I work fulltime in international biz travelling, so can't travel as much as I'd like in coach.

The rv park site lets me enjoy weekends in the mountain w/out having drive the coach back & forth 3.5 hrs each way. And w/a 45' class A, I'm guaranteed a nice creekside spot w/quiet neighbors. Works well for us. That said, we haven't had the coach up there since July, due to taking trips the last couple months and again coming up. We'll finally get back to our rv park site in late October for leaf change.

Sounds great. Those are very large RV lots. Approx 100 x 108. Most of the house lots in the subdivisions that I build are only 60' - 70' wide. Do you have any photos?

The OP'er said State Park. I have only once run into a state park where seasonal sites. Just about all state parks are 14 day limits. The private campgrounds, all are a little different as far as seasonal sites. So that are popular, will have a waiting list for a space. Where others, might have a available site with just water and electric, but no sewer.

One near us, had a wait list for each site. So if that person sold his trailer, they had to remove it from that site, because the next person on the list had first dibs to that site.

In my opinion, the easiest way to get into a seasonal site campground, is buy a used one at the park you like that can stay on that site. Someone has already built the deck, put a shed in. Maybe a golf cart is included in the deal. Check out Craigslist in your area or the campgrounds website might list units for sale. Just make sure as a new owner, that unit can stay on that lot. And know what it is going to cost you for rent.

Thanks, that's my light weight climber. Love the gaps. Coach is on hwy 180 (road to Brasstown Bald) so I can do a 40 mile loop from the coach and get in Japs Gap, Unicoi, & Hogpen. Makes for a nice loop. If I want a different route, I can do Wolfpen, Woody's & Neels gap for a little longer but easier loop.

Last weekend was the annual six gap ride, which combines them all into a century. Hadn't done it yet, always off at Ironman Augusta same weekend.
Safe spinning!
