Tents Only seems pretty clear to me.

There is a private camp ground near us. He segregates the tent campers from the RV crowd because the tent crowd complains the RV crowd is too loud, light up everything at night and are inconsiderate. The tent area is much nicer.

So does "No truck campers" but if you grouse and complain and wine enough, anything goes.


Putting 10-ply tires on half ton trucks since aught-four.

In yellowstone, the "no tents" (no canvas) camping area is because of the presence of bears.

In other parks, (eg Yosemite) tents only require a short walk from the parking lot to the campsite. No vehicle camping in the small, dense parking lot.

In Zion, I spoke with the gatekeeper of a tents only campground. It was a matter of environmental impact and camping equity. At this one, he had a placard of vehicle profiles that were not allowed, tent or no tent, including trucks with TCs, vans and other custom RVs. Basically, if it has propane, plumbed water, a heater or a refrigerator (easily seen from the outside) it is not allowed in tents only parking.

I have not encountered RV camping that restricted pop ups (except Yellowstone).
