I'd prefer boondocking but Texas heat makes AC a necessity.

State Parks For Us

We like State Parks - more room and usually very pretty. We just need electric. Don't like to be on top of other campers. If we run out of water, we just put some in a 3 gallon jug and put it in the tank. Usually bathrooms are pretty clean. We like to hike and drive around and enjoy the scenery a state park has to offer.

Taking 3 kids under 5 years old with us, we enjoy having the full amenities. This doesn't mean we watch DVD's all day, it just means A/C and full use of washroom facilities.

Most of the parks we frequent have "partial hookups".

We have done all types of camping and would like at least partial hookups but in the year we have had the trailer I think tv has been on about 3 times there is just to much to do without watching tv. I would rather sit by the fire and take a nap or read a book as be inside and watch tv. but that is just me.

We actually prefer either/or boondocking/hook-ups depending on the situation on hand only because typically we long distance travel. If traveling and a reciprocal (member with hookups) c/g isn't available then we will look for whatever is along the 'route' when traveling long distance (inlcluding overnights at ie: WM etc of which we use Don's boondocking concoctions - lol).

Boondocking usually is because we have to. Hubby really likes to have the conviences. We both like to BBQ.

If we have a choice, we will do local resort camping that is available (members); we are grandparents that love to hike/bike and enjoy nature, but when we need grandma/pa rest, the grandkids can still remain active with options provided by the youth center. Win/win

We usually do the electric only sites in MI state parks but if the cost and amenities were the same we would go with full hookups. Voted for W + E due to no other options.
