What kind of campground was it? I grew up camping and loved it, but I have to say that in the past fifteen years or so, I actively seek out wilderness camping spots or national parks as opposed to most privately owned campgrounds precisely because in those places, camping seems to mean bringing a house on wheels into what resembles some sort of parking lot - with absolutely no privacy and people sitting in air conditioned metal boxes watching tvs until the evening when they emerge to build a fire and sit around it getting drunk.
Maybe that has some bearing on how campers these days look.
You can't really get away from the noise, as you could in your own home, and you have to share a bathroom - which I don't have to do in my own home- so why would I go someplace to do what I can do at home- except that I'm paying to do it in less comfort?
I like the old camping - where you had your little private glade - you might have a water spigot - or you might have to walk to a common water pump - and there was no such thing as electricity there - so it was relatively silent- except for the woods' noises -and dark except for firelight, lanterns and flashlights. That's what made it fun!
You can still find those places - but like I said - you just have to look very carefully and be discriminating about what exactly you want your camping experience to be.
