We've only recently started camping with full hookups, and we like 'em, but we are happy at Forest Service campgrounds where there are firepits and tables, but no hookups (and not even any phone service). We have good-sized tanks, and if there's no water, we can bring our own. (When there is water, we have to put it in a container and take it back to the trailer.) We like both.

If an option, I would have to say we prefer to at least have electric during any summer trips for the a/c. My wife gets hot way to easy when sleeping, so much so that the window in the house is kept open a little during the winter, here in Michigan where we can see -20* or even colder temps!!!

Most of the time when on our big trip of the year we have electric only on the site we get. But our friends have full h/u. So we do run a fresh water hose over to eliminate the need to fill the tank. And a grey garden hose long enough to run back to their site to drain the grey tank when needed.

Side note for those that don't have water h/u, but can fill jugs- get a battery powered kerosene pump to make it easy to transfer water. Works great!!!

Boondocking vs Full hookups

We like both and don't think we could pick one to the exclusion of the other.

I will say that in many respects, staying with full hookups for a few days allows us to get ready for our next boondocking stop(s). We don't usually take advantage of the pools, activities, etc. usually available in many full hookup sites.

The exception to that is Ft.Wilderness in WDW!

I like boondocking, DW likes having electric. Having water and sewer no big deal. Even when we have them we don't use enough water to dump during the weekend.

Full Hookups and paved level sites are what I prefer, that is not how it always works out though.

Electric is preferred. Have never actually had full hook ups, no sewer. Having water was nice but not necessary, electricity is nice tho! Keep it cool for kids naps and such.
