Thanks for the tip, moosetags. I wish CAMPGROUNDS had this feature, a fair price for a brief stopover, instead of charging full price for a few hours sleep. If that were the case, I would never spend another night at a rest stop, Wal-Mart, Cracker Barrel, or a truck stop. The last time I was passing through Pennsylvania, we were looking for a campground to spend the night - 7 hours max. We called two of them, and they wanted $36 and $42 respectively, for two people (kids over 16 and guests were $5 extra). We stayed at a Wal-Mart in Harleyville [with permission from the manager, who took the time to direct us to the quietest spot)
Until campgrounds can offer something reasonable, they lose.
