State Park Camping Question

We are planning a trip with another family in July who don't have a trailer but will be bringing their boat. They plan to tent camp, we will use our trailer. Do state parks let people without trailers stay on trailer lots? We want to be close to them so we can share our trailer etc.

I know I should call a state park to ask but some are still closed for winter.

Down here they allow them to set up on a pad some of our parks have a tent area also. Many of our State parks also have cabins for rent

Each park has different rules, I have been to some in Arkansas and Texas that have a tent pad at every RV site and then some that do not allow a tent

Looks like both parks we are considering offer tent and rv use on any powered site. Now just to fine one with availability.

So if there is no water on site at the camp ground where do I find it? I really don't want to fill my tank at home. When we got to Watkins Glen I was going to find a local campground and see if I could fill up there first, but I didn't think state parks would be without water.

Still have lots to learn.

Some do and some don't. We have some primitive camping on the outer banks in NC. From what I understand is they have port a potties and no water. We do have other state parks that have places to fill or may share a tap between multiple sites. I would contact the park service or if you are staying at the track, contact the track and find out. I know Dover had water trucks top you off but they came at a cost. Charlotte has some sites with water and power so each place is different.

I stayed at Watkins Glen last Sept. they have water you can fill up with close to the check in station. They do not have many sites that a 29 footer will fit in. I was in a 25 TT last year and the spots are tight!
