Each to their own, but I not about to pay $30 to $35 per night any place.
Last winter we were out for almost 100 nights averaged $7.50 per night with $18.00 the highest. We met several full timers that wouldn't pay over $20.00 per night.

Don't worry, I'll stay off of your lawn and keep the rock and roll music down.

I think life is about experiences and each of us desire different things. Not that one is better than the other, just different. It's doubtful I'd make a habit of staying at a campground like Hi-Way Haven, but I certainly would one time. How cool, sit in your lawnchair, eat popcorn and watch a drive-in movie! I grew up with drive-in movies and haven't been in about 35 years. Roll back the time.....

I totally agree with your first tow sentences. I've never been drawn to resorts of any kind, but that's me. My first preference is to be out in the wild woods with nobody else around. Where I can sit in my lawn chair and watch the deer, coyotes, the birds, a bat or two at dusk. Listen to the water as rushes towards the sea, the frogs croaking, ducks and geese quacking and honking, a Douglas Squirrel scolding. Those thing are far more interesting to me than somebody fantasy shown on big screen. I don't go to movies and I don't watch fiction on television. There's maybe 2 or 3 fiction movies a year that I'll get on DVD maybe double that for non-fiction. Activities such as swimming nothing beats a nice mountain lake for swimming or fishing.
However, I'm glad there are those the prefer the resorts rather than over populate my hide aways, as the resort goers would not like it if every body went to the resorts so it was difficult to get in the prices doubled.
No matter what you choose, there are lots of options out there, enjoy.

Half-way between Crater Lake, Oregon and Fremont, California is the Junction of Interstate 5 and Interstate 505, which is smack-dab in the middle of absolutely nowhere. Nothing but wheat fields to the horizon, as far as the eye can see in any direction.

The closest anything will be The Camper's Inn RV and Golf Resort near Dunnigan, California. We haven't stopped there.
We ended up finding Heritage RV Park in Corning which was ~80 miles north of Dunnigan. A great place for a stop-over if you need one.

We tried that park out on your suggestion Donna and it was a great place for a stop-over. Nice and clean, dog-friendly, free wi-fi and a free movie too!

Full trip report is here.
