Backing is a two person job. It can be a stressful situation and it is best to decided that it won't be in your case.
One year when snowbirding, we met a couple who bickered so much about backing-in that they'd developed their own routine. SHE would sit in the campground office, while he parked the fiver, solo.
The amount of help you need in backing depends on whether you are having to turn to your blind side as you back up. If the site is angled off the left side of the through-road, it's easy enough to do solo. It always pays to get out and look at what's behind you first, whether or not you are using a helper. DW does not always recognize obstacles on the ground, because she is too busy looking at the picnic table and power stanchion.
I've found that it also helps to plan your driving day a little on the short side. Things get ugly very quickly when you arrive at the campground already exhausted from the drive, then have to worry about backing/pulling in, leveling and hooking up land lines.
