Our "main" state park for weekend camping was 20 minutes away from the house.

It is not how far "away" you are, but that you are "away."

The local SP I stay at all the time is 8 miles from my house, then the RV park I go to a few times a year is 4 miles from my house. It's far enough away to get some R&R.
The SP has a big lake on it, so it makes it fun to go to. The RV park has a hot tub and a nice pool. Those are what makes me want to keep going back.
Plus I dont have to spend the big $$$ for gas

We're fortunate to have an excellent state park in the foothills of the Catalina Mountains around 4 miles from the house and we use it frequently. It's a longer drive (12 miles) to get the coach out of the storage lot. The park is beautiful, well run and once set up you wouldn't know that your within 3 minutes from civilization.

The best part is when we realize "we left that at home" it's just a couple fo minutes to go get whatever we forgot

Our regular campground spot is 8 miles away. We try to stay there 3-4 days each month just as a quick getaway.

One of our favorite places to go is only twenty miles away in the Columbia Gorge. It's just - easy. And sometimes the driveway is just fine! We like the long trips but my DW still works and can't always get away for a week or two.

Moved into a campground in a town I had worked in years before. I had worked with the the fellow in the site beside me. They still live in the town and were camping across the river from their house. You could see their house from the edge of the campground. He was still working for the same company as when I worked with him and working for the campground on weekends.

That's so funny that they can see their house. But it beats the driveway! We're a strange bunch!!

What's nice about camping close to home is that you can come home and do laundry in your own washroom. And if you need any tools or anything else, it's handy.

With 4 state parks within an hour, and a bunch of government campgrounds, we don't have to go anywhere. But we do dearly love the Smokies and the Blue Ridge Mountains.

My back yard has shade, full hookup and a very small pond where we see wildlife while we are in the RV. We do stay at the state parks fairly close also. I just enjoy the moho.
