Reason I ask is coz we always try an travel 'light' while touring – in all of Europe we've always just headed out, stopped where we felt like and booked into a hotel... saving on all the clutter associated with camping.
What do you think?
You have national parks, state parks and at a push Koa (Camping and Campgrounds - KOA Kampgrounds of America, Inc.
Get an Eagle card for the National parks, free access to all parks.
State Parks charge an access, but with camping still cheap.
I *loved* it.
We also did motels going East -> West (with friends). Preferred camping.
