One of my most favorite camping spot in this vicinity is the Sherando Lake Recreation Area... Has a great Lake, facilities, tent camping, and electric sites...

A GREAT get-away place for sure...

A/C is exempt from quiet time rules unless it has a bad bearing that is screaming or something. If that was the case, you'd have a hard time sleeping not just those around you.

I can speak to the WV State Campgrounds and State Forest areas, AC running all day and night is not a problem. Camped at Watoga State Park this past week and went down to Seneca State Forest, both I would highly recommend! Many of the State Parks here in WV, AC is not really needed with the exception of the heat of the day from say noon - 4pm at certain parks.

Never been in a park w/Ac that did not allow it. Have been in some that chart extra for ac use.

As a long time Maryland resident I cannot imagine a summer night without ac. But the others are right. Set the thermostat to 45 and snooze away!

We sleep with a blanket on. That should tell you something.

If you can provide the area(s) you would like to camp at, someone might be able to provide a recommendation. If you live north of Baltimore, even state parks in PA like Codorus State Park near Hanover, PA (which has electric sites) are reachable in about an hour.

Warning! If your intended weekend is that of July 4th, reserving a site anywhere will be a matter of luck being a holiday weekend. Even the weekend before (June 28-29) may be hard to reserve as the week of June 30th - July 4th is the most popular vacation week of the year!

I think the reason for no generators after quiet time is that some are really noisy. It is easier to enforce a no generator rule and include all than to argue with someone that thinks theirs is ok.

If it's hot we run our AC all night or until it shuts itself off.

I definitely run my a/c's all night, but then I'm on shorepower. My next lot neighbor isn't using his a/c in his motor home at all. I can not imagine being on the Florida Gulf Coast this time of year and not using a/c. I am a host here and am outside most days, but at night I want a/c. Even temps in the high 70's at night with 100% humidity isn't comfortable to me.

Thank you for pointing out Cordus State Park. I wasn't familiar with it. And it looks very interesting!

Actually, though, I meant my comment about needing to find a place... in a more general sense, not specifically this or the next weekend. In the past (before we had A/C) when the weather forecast looked promising, I looked at nearby campgrounds (within 2-3 hours) and everything was already taken!
