We are searching for a campground that is cool in the summer that has certain requirements. We need 50 amp FHU, concrete slab, open in order to get satellite off the roof, allow to use in motorhome washer and dryer, with reasonable rates. We are a 39' class A diesel, 2015 model. Any help will be greatly appreciated and acknowledged.

You have posted in the "family camping" forum. Does that mean you have children? Ages? What activities? USA is a large country. Are you wanting a certain part of the country? Or wide open?

BB_TX, I didn't see where there was an appropriate area to post this other than family camping. No, we have no children. Just the two of us and no pets. We travel the country every year and put about 10,000 miles on our motorhome. We are thinking that in 2020 if we find a campground that looks like a place we would like to stay, we may stay put for 3-5 months. We live in Florida and try to escape the heat every summer. Now we end up in Montana every summer. We are hoping to find something probably North Carolina, Northern Georgia, Tennessee. Found one in NC but they don't allow you to use your own washer. So that one is out. Hope someone on the forum can recommend one to us.

Look for higher elevations from Asheville NC toward Johnson City Tn.
You will find temps more moderate above 1500 preferably around 2000+ foot elevations.
In thinking about it ,,, Boone NC is also a possibility 3300' elevation keeps their summers pretty moderate.

Have not stayed here, but you got me to thinking maybe I should, so I searched a little, found this one.

Good luck.

Egg Harbor Campground and RV Resort. Egg Harbor, WI. A few years ago they put in concrete pads and patios. The area with these sites is not wooded. I can't answer the question about washer, you'd have to call them. They do answer the phone as they are in Florida this time of year.

Egg Harbor is in the Door County peninsula in WI. That's the "thumb" of WI. It's on the Green Bay side. It never gets real hot there. Lots to do, lots of good places to eat if you like doing that.

I agree that the Door County area of Wisconsin is great in the summer. I have never had a terrible time with bugs either. I live in WI, about 200 miles from there and we try to get up there for a week every year. There are many wineries, museums, distilleries, kayak tours, etc in the area.

Wind Creek SP in Alexander City, AL has everything you're looking for and your site is right on the lake. Sixty minutes north or south and you'll find every restaurant and store you could need.

A prime location in prime season, prime site, Concrete slab, sat. friendly, unlimited utility use.
For what reasonable fee?
I do not know of any camp that would be able or wish to host you for less than 1K/ mo. plus elec.
Lower your expectations or be prepared to pay your own elec. will open a lot of nice places to you. Why concrete, Whats wrong with gravel?

SDcampowneroperator, I didn't say we wouldn't pay our own electric. I said we wanted FHU meaning 50 amp, water and sewer. I will not lower my expectations. We prefer concrete and very much dislike gravel. When I said reasonable rates, I meant I didn't want $75/$100 per day on a monthly rate. $1000.00 is only $33.33 per day. THAT is VERY reasonable. Don't jump to conclusions when you don't know the people you are talking to. We are retired military and stay in VERY nice FamCamps and that is why we end up in Montana. Would like something NICE a little closer.
