"Resort" is just a way to charge more for the same thing it was when it was called a "RV Park"

It is what it is in the eyes & marketing of it's owner. Your opinion may differ greatly.

I'd expect a nice paved or concrete parking pad, a decent & clean picnic table, a decent functioning fire ring, separation between sites, a proper pool, a pavilion, dog area, maybe a playground, maybe putt putt golf, a generally well maintained CG & a price significantly higher than any basic CGs & SPs in the area.

Define your term of "expensive", "not expensive". To us, expensive would probably be 40 or more. 35-40 borderline expensive. We use various public operated campgrounds which can be expensive but usually less than private and we don't care about pools, golf, etc. but $$ isn't the top criteria, its nature.

I think 'expensive' is going to be area related. Maybe the terms less expensive and more expensive relative to the cg's in the immediate area would be better.
