You'll see more detail on the Moon when it is not near full. The shadows visible near first quarter and last quarter are phenomenal. The sky need not be totally dark--you can see the Moon equally well from a small city as from a rural dark sky. Try focusing on a star before you move to the Moon to be sure you're in focus. If that doesn't work, focus on the most distant object in your neighborhood that you can see, then try a star, then the Moon. You may just not be in focus.
