Go over to Sequim, they seem to have a lot more blue sky than other palces in that area. My daughter and her brood live there. Husband is a mobile RV tech. and they just moved up to a 35' MH.

This is our first year staying at a year round campground (because of our crappy work schedules). I made sure it was a well maintained cg!!! Some private cg let their permanent campers live like pigs!

Unfortunately, we are in a section with only permanent sites. I would love to be in a section where I can watch/meet all the nightly people set up camp on the weekends!

But I agree with others...read the reviews of people who have stayed...not the campground owners!

Since we've been sticking to COEs and State Parks, we don't come upon that kind of thing anymore.

They are CG/parks operated by the Corps of Engineers. From what I understand they have a lot to offer.

Thanks for clearing that up for me RickO. I was wondering myself.

If you haven't tried them, the Corps of Engineers parks are some of the best in the country. You will find them pretty much anywhere the Corps built a dam for flood control which means there are lots of them in the states with rivers that feed the Missouri and Mississippi although you will find them in many other states, also. The COE campgrounds show up on Federal recreation, camping and tour reservation information - Recreation.gov so you can look for them that way.

Typically, the COE CG's have larger than average sites, many of them have electricity and quite a few have full hookups. Costs for full hookup sites are in the $20-25 range and most COE locations will honor the federal senior pass (although they can't sell it to you). We use them frequently and have never been disappointed.
