Is this Homesteading or not? 10 sites in the Mil. CG are like this or better. Some even have vegetable gardens.

Homesteading? If they're conforming to the campground's regulations as to length of stay and cleanliness/neatness of their site, what difference does it make? If they aren't, the camp host needs to bring it to their attention.
We've stayed at military campgrounds several times for the maximum number of days allowed. We don't go to the extent pictured in your post, but I personally don't see anything wrong with the sites pictured.

I am with you billb 1959 looks neat and tidy to me and I would not be upset staying next to these folks. Many military campgrounds allow someone to stay for 3 and 4 months from first made reservation so why not make it homey. More and more folks are living in their RV's full time so they take plants, figurines, outdoor lights etc. with them so it feels like their home to them.

We are not full timers but extended travellers and do not like the regulations of folks being able to stay numerous months at one time but we do understand it and accept it. If we cannot get in to the military campground we prefer we go to a private campground closeby.

My definition of a "homesteader" is someone who lives in the military campground or RV park for a year or more. Especially when their residence looks like trash. A 6 or 7 month stay is fine, if that's what the rules allow. But someone shouldn't be allowed to live there all year.

I've seen where a retired member had been living in a military RV Park for over 3 years. While we were on vacation and wanted to stay for the weekend. We were turned away because there was no available spaces. Of the 30 RV spaces, 26 of them had someone living in them for over a year. I asked the clerk where the "recreation" was in their name of a "Recreational Vehicle Park".

I do live in my RV, but would never stay in a military campground for more than 6 months. But for us, we never stay in one place for more than a few months, other than when we work for the summer.

Both pictured have been on the spots more then 2 years others in another camp ground have been better then 3+ years. Sure they look nice,but you know just as well as me you are not carrying those planters and other equipment in your MH... One was even digging a trench and driving post for the Sat TV when I took the pics you see

Now that you mention how long they have been there we all would agree this is homesteading. I have seen folks carry planters like this as these are planters that have a lid in the top that you only need a couple inches of soil to plant anything or you sit little pots in them. We have seen some of the most unusual things you can even imagine come out of cars, pickups and RV's that must add weight and take up valuable space but for the full-timers they do what they have to for their stuff. Would you mind disclosing the location of this homesteader campground? We know several that allow this and try and avoid them whenever possible as they think they own the place and disregard all campground rules. The digging the trench for Sat TV really indicates there is lack of management or somebody knows somebody.
