Do any campgrounds have a weigh station to weigh your rig

None we've been to, however, RVSEF has a couple of weighing teams who go to rallies around the country, look at their weighing schedule here to see if they are coming close to you. They will do individual corner weighing which you can't do on most CAT scales as they have rails which keep you from having one side off the scale. CAT scales do have segments which will weigh your axles individually.

Around here (WA state) the State leaves the scales on when the scale houses are closed. The digital readouts are also on and the area is usually flat enough to do individual weights.

Farm supplies, commercial nurseries, and the like or options. Check for public scales in your area.

It really does no good to just weigh the axles. You must weigh the four corners and find a place where this can be done. Weighing the axles and dividing by 2 is a recipe for blowouts, plain and simple.
