Overnight? Close to the highway, economical, clean, pull through and 30 amps. Water and sewer not important.
Long term? Away from the highway, economical, clean, roomy sites and in the summer, 50 amp service with full service. Pool for the wife and a close to a vacant area that I can fly my RC planes.

Mostly location. My attitude is if it's where I want to be when I want to be there then cost is much less relevant. I do try to find less expensive spots if it's just an overnighter but I'm not against paying if it's easily accessible and not out of the way. Amenities like pools and playgrounds were much more important when my son was young.

RV-less for now but our spirits are still on the open road. And missing it more every day!
Full hooks, allows dogs, nearby when we decide to stop.
Otherwise shade, no noisy attractions full of screamers, away from all cities and away from Interstates.
Passport America always looked for first.

Location. We will park most anywhere if it's near where we want to be. Cost is a factor too, especially if we are just traveling through. After that we like clean, quiet, shady, etc. Sometimes need electricity, enjoy a nice view if avaliable. Never need TV or a pool although I have been known to enjoy the swings and slides at the playground. lizzie
We don't need hook ups but a dump station and potable water are a big plus. We like being up in the trees with lots of shade. On site Host's at least gives us hope that if there are bozo's we won't have to deal with them. Detailed site info on the Web is nice even if we don't actually make reservations as we can see what is available and guesstimate the crowd factor. Water, as in lakes, streams, rivers, ponds whatever, are a big plus (and no I don't fish).
Location! Location! Location! 50 amps, Rules that are in place and enforced that keep the place quiet after quiet hours start. A place that caters to vacationing people, not a park with a couple of sites for tourists and the rest are for oil field workers and migrant farm workers. We also don't like seasonal parks where visitors are treated like they have the plague. For us, the park often has less to do with our satisfaction with our stay than the luck of the draw that determines who our immediate neighbors are. The best park is the world gets a little less enjoyable if we are next to Oscar the Grouch or the Clampetts on their way to Beverly, Hills that is.
