Wouldn't be the first time a campground was wired wrong. Could have been an open common or ground. If you have 30amp service it's ONLY to be used with 120V and NOT 220/240V. 50amp units are designed for 240V input that's split into two (30 and 20amp) 120V circuits. There are cords that can be used to allow a 50amp plug to be used on a 30amp unit, but it only splits one of the 120V circuits off of the 240V.

Close but, 50amp units are designed for 240V input that's split into two 50amp 120V circuits.
