The coolest place (pun intended) was at 12,000 feet on the Ingraham glacier when I climbed Mt. Rainier. There are too many good campgrounds, each with its own unique features, for me to pick a favorite.
Group campsites are better for promoting social interaction. The same is true for having food included, with group participation in the preparation of meals.
I've been on long weekend trips to Door County in Wisconsin and the Sleeping Bear Dunes in Michigan. Both of those trips are probably at the max that I'd be willing to drive.
Staying in an RV does not qualify as camping. Electricity is not a requirement, and is even a negative feature when it is used for running air conditioners all night. Showers are not required, but are nice to have available.

I'm an active backpacker and camper, and I'm always looking for new friends to share outings.
I liked all the new people I met and I'm looking forward to meeting more.
