How could I have used this much electric?

You may not have - the numbers on your meter may have been transposed or hard to read.  Or this usage could be from a prior month.  The electric is turned on to the whole campground starting March 1st if you are plugged into your meter you will have power. Just call the office and we can check to see if there is a problem.
