Which is better in general: national/state vs. private campgrounds? Or does it really depend on the individual campground?

I'd have though public sites would be more sedate, with park rangers having the force of law to enforce park regulations, like quite time.

While that may be true in some areas, we have been in many state parks, in particular, that on weekends are pretty wild. Park rangers are overworked and cover large areas. Typically they will respond if a complaint is made, but our experience is that you generally do not see them patrolling much. State park crowds tend to be younger and, especially on weekends, they are looking for a good time. This generally includes some kinds of adult beverages. We never stay at state parks on summer weekends - sometimes during the week, especially after school starts.

There are commercial parks that also tend to get loud and boisterous. We, generally, do not stay in these kinds of areas. We have also found that most commercial parks tend to keep a pretty tight lid on loud party type behavior. There are obviously exceptions. A couple of times through the years, we have found the wheels on our rv useful to move away from stuff we did not like, in both public and private areas.
