I've had good luck at rest areas on the road and Cracker Barrels.....for those 4 hour energy naps.

Been there, done that.
Glenn actually doesn't look too bad . I was coming and going so I was picky for one night . When I left State Camground in Oregon ended up at a marina with full hookups that at that time ended up being free . Stayed for 3 days it was so nice . I am sure next time it won't be free though . Office was closed and no one to collect . I was very willing to pay someone . There were lots of us . Want to stay in Long beach , Ca at a campground within walking distance of lots . So not totally against if that is what I am looking for . Actually Casino's are pretty good deal too I found on last trip . Pat

Nothing like a power-nap before Happy Hour ($1 drafts and $1 wings).

speaking of happy, you must be with less than 2 months to hatching time.

Jim, I can't wait! I'm expecting factory pictures any time now. We're using a spare room to store supplies and I use my spare time looking at State Parks. My wife says I'm obsessed.

She might be right!

As to why some folks voluntarily pack themselves in -- not everyone is looking for nature -- Sometimes people just want to be with their friends with full hookups and a pool and playground for the kids. Or they want to be near the water -- the place we stayed on Lake Huron last summer had people crammed in, but even the camper the furthest away from the beach was only a couple minutes away. Like Donna said, no matter where you go, if you have your trailer, you're in your own bed (and no fear of bedbugs
