Boondocking or full hook ups.....neither is better than the other. Explaining why you dislike crowds and love the woods or someone explaining why they need plenty of electricity and amenities really isn't important. Do the type of camping you like and let others camp the way they like, without criticizing what the other is doing! That's why there are National Forest sites and motor coach resorts.

Many people think the quiet is boring. They miss their smart phones, TV, DVDs and only God knows what else. They like to live just like at home with different scenery. Many people are uncomfortable with their thoughts, conversation and all of that Nature. I am not one of them.

In our senior years, we really try to avoid not having elec. if really hot and humid or well below freezing.

We choose campgrounds based on location,space between sites and price. We generally prefer federal and state park campgrounds.Hookups is normally not a consideration. My wife does like to have at least electric. But we do have a Honda 2000 generator for those ocassions where there are no hookups.

The best thing about camping in America, everyone gets to do it there own way. I don't worry about how everyone else is doing it, I do it my way.

Exactly. Who cares how someone else camps? Is it spring yet?

We’ve never stayed in a campground. We use our trailer for housing at sheepdog trials; camping in pastures (bring plenty of leveling supplies). No hookups and typically no fees. If the event is a week long the host will make arrangements for onsite pump outs and water fill ups for a fee.

Here's a pretty good guide on full hookups if you want to go down that route vs. boondocking. https://whereyoumakeit.com/rv/rv-hookups/
