My wife and I always look for campgrounds with wooded sites prior to booking. Noise of the birds and the rustling leaves waking us in the morning is much preferred.
A grass parking lot with RV's, TT's, and PUP's all squished together, waking to the drone of A/C, other people Stereos blaring, and the roar of the 8 cylinder engines coming to life all around you just does not do it for me.
Whats your preference, wooded or field camping and why?

The only exception to fully wooded camping for me, is directly on the beach. Even then, I would prefer wooded camping with beach access. Our favorite state park, here in FL, is fantastic. It has wooded campsites right on the river and open ones on the beach. We camp in the wooded river loop and enjoy both the river and the beach.
