What kind of camping do you prefer?

What kind of camping do you prefer? For me I enjoy the full hook ups, and amenities which an RV campground has to offer. How about you, are you more of a boondocker or full hookup?

Lets see.. does sleeping in the van with 4 miserable teenagers due to torrential rains, and the impossibility of setting up an old "canvas" tent trailer in the rain, count as boon docking? This happened to us at the Grand Canyon about 5 years ago.. !

Seriously now that we have the big trailer.. I think I want to try it!

I had to put full hookups because of the wife and daughter but I prefer boon docking myself. Getting away from the hook ups and getting to the better fishing places is much better for me than sitting around watching T.V.

Me....boondocking for the challenge of making limited resources last.

The DW....full hookups and a bunch of new DVD's. She's always been a city girl.

I like having electric, but I don't need everything else.

we've done it all but I would rather be able to take a hot shower without worrying about running out of water.

Most of the time I'm Mr. Boondocker, but there are also times I like the convenience of being able to use as much water and electricity as I like. Full hookups can be nice, but boondocking is more of an adventure. And I'm an adventuresome kind of guy.

We seem to get by doing whatever we have access too. Sometimes we use ours as a condo on wheels if we are not really camping and want a nice place to sleep. That's when we like having full hookups. Other times we can park in a field and get by without any hookups. That's the joy of having a self contained unit.
