When doing squats, I feel it more in my thighs. Starting to think I'm doing them all wrong but how could I?
Feeling it in your thighs shows it's being done right. Squats really work your quadriceps (LARGE muscles at front of thighs) not just your glutes. Put your weight in your heals as you lower (you can wiggle your toes) and flex your glutes to pull your body back up. This should help you feel it in your rear end more. Also adding weight even with some light dumbbells will up your resistance to work your muscles a little more.
As long as your knees aren't extending past your toes when you're in the squat position, you're probably doing it right. I feel them most in my thighs too. If I focus on squeezing my glutes as I come up to standing (squeezing from the glutes and pushing my hips forward) I can feel it working my glutes more, but I'll always feel it in my thighs first.
If you're looking for more exercises for your glutes, try lunges, curtsey lunges, and step ups. For step ups I use a table that's 18-20" high, step onto it with my right foot, lift my body up with my right leg only, drop myself back to the floor slowly with the right leg, then switch to the left. Those are GREAT for glutes.
