Scout the campground for obliging fellow campers and see if they would be prepared to have another tent on their site. Then maybe pay a split fee. That way it is a win-win situation for everyone -- the campground gets to still rent out a powered site for $18 and the other campers and you get a half-price deal.

But... knowing my luck, there would be some crowd move into the vacant campsite, do the hook-up, make a racket all night, and not pay the fee anyway.

Otherwise, reluctantly, pay the $18 fee. Oh, and if you have a cell phone, a call to the campground managers (assuming there is a number listed) might negotiate an honest reduction in the fee.

Most campgrounds in North America that I have seen in NPs and forest areas usually have vacant space around the convenience blocks or somesuch, and that might provide another solution, by pitching a tent there, and paying the $12 fee. I always found it a bit odd to see a tiny tent pitched on a full-size RV pad.
