Like many popular parks, Pokagon State Park campgrounds fill nearly every summer day — with one exception. When traveling we don’t always know in advance where we will want to camp that evening, so we don’t make a reservation. Campsites that fill quickly have electric and sometimes sewer and internet service.
But most state and national parks have traditional sites that were once standard. These have a picnic table, firepit and place to pitch a tent. No electricity or internet is available, and restrooms usually are a short walk away. Many parks lack funds to upgrade these with modern amenities. Often when all electrified sites are filled, there’s space left in these so-called “primitive” campsites.
