    Does anyone know of any campgrounds in the Northeast down to Virginia that have Trio buddy sites. I cannot seem to find any in the North/central east coast. I was only able to find one in DE which is always booked! Any help would be appreciated.

    Welcome to the forum

    https://campgrounds.rvlife.com/regions/connecticut/bristol/lake-compounce-campground-249411

    Lake Compounce campground in Ct has pull through island sites where the RVs face each other, if you add the next Island over that would add up to four total sites with in very close distance to each other.

    Thats the only park I recall that might be close to what you are looking for. Maybe another member will post in with some help

    I think such sites will be a rare find. Parks would shy away from them for a couple of reasons. First, they would be very undesirable if the park couldn’t fill them with groups traveling together and had to put unrelated parties in them. Those RVs would be sharing yards and facing each other eliminating the already small amount of privacy you get in most parks.
    Secondly, a park would likely be concerned with what they would be signing up for. What would that group need buddy sites for that couldn’t also be achieved with just normal sites side by side? Would those activities have a negative effect on all the other guests? I know we would have felt such a request might very well be a tip off that maybe that was business we were better off letting go elsewhere.

    State parks and some national parks are more likely to have "group sites" that will allow multiple units to be parked together. if you are self contained, also check out BLM land and forest service land that might have open areas to park together.

    Any time we've wanted three sites together, we've either taken three adjacent sites or two adjacent and one directly across the road. That let us all get together for group activities on one site while giving each of us some privacy at other times.

    Good idea Chris, I had forgotten about the group sites or safari fields, I remember seeing them at private parks and some COE's.
