No. The campground fees would be a personal expense that is not deductible.

I have that same issue but I'm charged yearly lot rent, and the travel trailer qualifies as my 2nd home, is that lot rent deductible ?

Unfortunately, amounts paid to rent space for an RV are not deductible, even if you live there year-round.

 

The only deductions available for your home (or second home/RV) are mortgage interest and property taxes. Unless you own the space (the underlying real estate), you don't pay mortgage interest or property taxes.
