Has anyone found a book or listings of campgrounds in AZ, TX and FL (US is better) that are just campgrounds? We are tired of going to so called RV Resorts and find they are 75 to 90 percent Park Models. If we wanted to sit around watching the grass grow, we could stay home.
Most of us know (rarely say) that there is a difference between RV people and Park Model people. RV people tend to be more outgoing and friendly. Usually a lot of interaction on trips and plans and lots of how to information.
I know this sounds snobbish but when you are the only RV in and area of Park Models where the people just sit inside watching TV it can be very discouraging. Seem more and more campgrounds are becoming Park Models Parks, not RV Campgrounds.

I hear you. I have seen a lot of these resortrs where you feel funny walking outside after the sun goes down. No one bar-b-ques or has a camp fire. We started camp hosting in the state parks its a lot more up my alley but isn't really a solution for a seasonal considering we have a 2 week leghth of stay for guest. I don't think there is any books for real campgrounds. I do think you are on the right track about staying away from campgrounds with park models. Look out for the corperate owned campgrounds and try to stick with private ones with less long term stays. Where in Florida do you like to go? Maybe I can give you some ideas.
