We have stayed in about eight different RV parks in the western states in our two rv trips to date. I find the cost, the hooking up and the departure to be more trouble than a motel, lugging stuff in and out. Our last stay at a park was akin to being a canned sardine. We could almost hear our neighbor's thoughts. I've heard from several folks that they seldom use an RV park, preferring to park at a walmart store or Flying J, etc. For free. Upon our return home I told my wife that I think the $20 - $30 per night at the parks and the hooking and unhooking hoses, etc may be unnecessary. Maybe finding a dump and fresh water every other day is more trouble than the parks? Are there any of you more experienced folks that can comment on this notion of mine?
