Default Electric Hookups for camping

I want to camping in my car at a campsite with electric hookups so that I can use my cpap device while I rest. I've never used utility hookups at a campsite before. Can I connect frequent household equipment into it, or is it a unique type of plug/power for RVs? Any recommendation would be appreciated.

the ones I've seen have multiple types of plugs includung standard 110V plugs
I'd just call the campsite and ask to make sure

I've been looking at Sears because I plan to go on a few road trips this summer. I've been checking out their portable battery jumpers/air compressors and I'm sure they'll have something that you'll like.

Most have either a 20 amp or 30 amp,I run my 35' camper off the 30amp and have plenty of power for everything.
