In California, those dry spaces would have triggered the requirement for a restroom facility, paved access, area lights, and often enough improvements that those dry spaces would not be cost effective.
Hmmmm - Flying Flags in Solvang *CA* came to mind.
*NO* hookups - park on grassy field $22.
Been that way for years (*long* before the recession).
. . . and not that expensive "back when".
Of course you can use the restrooms!.
That might be considered a bit steep - but it's a *VERY* touristy destination.
Plenty of Elks lodges in CA with inexpensive, lighted *no-hookup* RV parking. (The $10-$15 variety).
Restrooms *not* available if/when the lodge is closed.
