Private or State Parks? 
When planning a camping trip, do you prefer to stay in private campgrounds or choose to go to state parks? Lately, my wife and I have been leaning towards staying in state parks and national forest campgrounds over private ones. They tend to be less crowded and you get a better taste of the outdoors.

Most state parks and national parks don't have hookups. Few have electric only, some have water but on septic. I would check with the ranger before i would make a reservation.

I'd prefer to stay in private campground since they are most likely to have full hookups than state, national and federal parks. At least you can be assured that they have these. Not to mention that they got other additional facilities that can keep the kids pre-occupied.

I'd agree with that. When it was just me and my wife, we pretty much camped everywhere, tent and RV. But our camping style changed the moment the kids came. Yeah, they don't mind going on a few hikes, but my kids seem to prefer spend more time in an arcade or in the swimming pool rather than out in the sun hiking all day long.

It depends who we're camping with. If it's just me and my husband, we'd prefer camping in State Parks. If camping with a group, pretty much where the majority wants.
