That is definitely in the direction I am looking, with less than 50% pavement.
Scenic Hills
Sorry - this is the very last type of place we'd look for to stay at:

Also - what is the draw?

I agree that location is number one. Clean and with space between sites. Quiet and no golf carts.

Hah!! We are actually in this picture. Top row, far left.

The draw? It’s in the heart of Ohio Amish/Mennonite country. We stayed 3 mos last summer.

I agree the layout is practical but I wish there was 4-5 more feet between rigs. Also a few tight corners.

Hope we can go back this summer.

In many cases, it's the location. I've stayed in at least one noticeably tighter than the picture, but it was in downtown Dawson City, Yukon, within easy walking distance of lots of stuff I wanted to see. More room would have been nice, but having a site available when I got there because they packed as many in as they could was even better.

We love staying there. But you are correct. It’s not the layout.

Why we love it because we sit out in the evening and listen to the horse and buggies go by. Watch the fireflies and enjoy the quiet.

Every Monday, the Amish girls mow, trim etc in their long dresses and bonnets barefoot.

A few minutes in every direction there are beautiful views, farms, produce stands, butcher shops not to mention some of the nicest people you could ever hope to meet.

One of our favorite places is River Ridge Resort in Stanwood, MI. Its main section consists of more closely packed sites which are paved and many have patio type areas for those who prefer that. We like the outlying loop with gravel sites and large grassy areas the kids can play in. One campground provides both. It has a nice pool, and a marina with rental pontoon boats as it is located on a river.
