Sometimes I talk to myself, but this is the first time I've ever written a reply to me...

We prefer back in sites. Our trailer has a big rear window, and usually the visual out the back of a back in site is better that that of a pull through site. Also, often back in sites offer more privacy due to vegetation. I find pull through sites more difficult to get into, as often the curve of the pull through is so short that placing the trailer is difficult for me.

I checked "Back In", but my real choice is "No Preference". However, back in sites are usually cheaper and I'm comfortable with backing with a trailer, hence the reason for my vote.

We often tandem tow with my boat bring up the rear. Pull through allows me to park without dropping off the boat.

Long stays back in for sure. Overnight pull through.

I prefer back in because of privacy. also a lot of back in sites are easier to park in than pull through sites. especially if you have a long trailer.

I stay almost exclusively in state park campgrounds, where almost all sites are back-in. Those few that are pull-thru's generally are more "open" sites at the ends of loops. I enjoy the privacy of a back-in. My new Eagle has a back window, so now I can also enjoy the view of the lake, etc. out the back of a back-in site.

Most pull-through sites I've seen in CGs are too tight together for our preference. With driveways on 2-sides, foot and vehicle traffic seems more likely at pull-throughs....

YMMV

I agree. The other issue is that at Local/State/National parks where we usually stay there are very few pullthrough sites relative to back-in.
