    Toss up if to post this in the new members forum or here... but here goes.
    While looking at a CG I found listed in amenities the normal terms

    The campground features 213 electric (Class A) campsites. These modern sites include:
    - electrical hookup
    - picnic table
    - fire ring
    - parking spur


    Is this a TT thing? What is a "parking spur" that would be listed with each sight? The only thing I could think of is if it has a designated spot next to the campsite to park the TV. I is it a little lot where several campers can park their TV or Tow-along for the big Motorhomes?

    There's something WAY TOO regulated when everything is so well mapped out. We usually camp at NY DEC or boondock, where you have a site and you put your camper and your TV within the site where you want it. A couple of years ago we went to a state CG in PA and it was like a parking lot with a pad and a concrete curb type bumper. They might have well spray painted on the drive way "camper goes here", I guess some like that but it wasn't for us!

    Notice the title of the document... "Accessibility guidelines". It's laying out basic standards so that people in wheelchairs, etc can enjoy camping too. It's hard to get the wheelchair up a 45 degree rugged slope ;)

    This is all common knowledge if you have passed your class III camping license exam. I did. Didn't you?
