We are heading on a three month RV trip around America, spending most of our time on both coasts, with a little bit of time in between. There are so many different campground RV park discount clubs out there. Some give a percentage off, others offer free nights. Which ones work best?
Everyone loves saving a little bit of money on the road. Having a few dollars knocked off your campsite fee each night sure adds up! Doing the research to find the right discount programs or membership clubs, then filling in the nominal paperwork to entitle you to savings and camping perks before you head on the road makes a lot of sense.
Let's start with the basics
Bear in mind that there are too many discount clubs and offers to count! We've done our best to provide you with a brief outline of some of the major discount programs and membership clubs:
The 10% memberships
The 50% memberships
Affiliation and other clubs
At the end of the day there is no right or wrong answer to which discount membership clubs to join. Figuring out the "best" memberships to join boils down to where you are going, how many days you plan to stay and what type of camping you prefer. Just do the math, read the fine print and go for it!
