That is what we do. Mark out the area with the temporary posts and string the rope wire. We've used the battery charger most of the time. The only problem we've had is if the ground is too dry. Normally, I just use a long screwdriver for the grounding rod, easier to get back out than putting in an actual grounding rod.

We've only had the fence taken down twice that I can remember. Once was when a bear walked past close by and the horses took off thru the fence. The other was when there was a severe storm during the night. One of the horses must have got caught up in the fence. They stayed in the fenced area even though the fence was down. The next day while we took the fence down, they decided to wander off.

The only time we've used corals is when they were already set up where we went camping.

on your dry days dig out a bit of dirt where you put your screw driver in, fill that hole with water then push in your ground.
If it is even drier than that and no matter what you do the horses hooves wont ground so doenst matter how good the ground is,
In that case run double strands of hot wire 2 inches apart. NOT touching eachother. One strand hot, the other attached to the ground terminal. Horse will get zapped when hitting both strands.

Ride N Tie

I like my hi tie that I mounted to my trailer. It's called a Ride-N-Tie and I ordered it from My horse is well behaved and stands tied quietly. I've not felt him pull on my trailer any time we've camped. When I've been at an actual campground, I usually use a high line between trees. He can move around a little more and even roll if he wants to. I have seen a horse or two get caught in these, but I've never had a problem with any of mine.
