average park rate

Is there an average going rate for parking your RV Class A. I know the beach fronts will be more expensive. I am very new to this and just wanted to know if there is a average rate you can expect.

There are a number of different places you can park for free. Depending on whether you want to boondock or prefer full hook-up (E/W/S) you can pay as little as $4.00 per night up to $100.00 per night. Even KOA's for example can vary between $25.00 to $100.00 per night depending on where the campground is located.

If you have a Senior Pass and utilize National Parks or COE Parks the rate is half the regular price.

You have to do the research for each area where you want to travel. We have been "on the road" since late March this year. We have paid as little as $4.00 and a much as $50.00, averaging $23.34 for 169 days.

Hope this helps. Happy and safe travels to you.

Also ... if you are looking at monthly or "seasonal" rates, those also vary by location and facility and can run from $300.00 per month to $1,200.00 per month or more ... some also charge for electric in addition to the monthly or seasonal rate.

For planning purposes when we are going on a two or three month trip I calculate $40 a night on average.

I joined the Elks and they are $10 to $20 a night.

KOA and Good Sam cards help.

If you aren't going to boondock or workamp I would say $40/night is around average. If you are frugal and plan ahead you can get it down further from there. We stay mostly in public parks, workamp part of the year and boondock part of the year...our average this year so far is $7/night.

If you're able to get a Senior Pass many public campgrounds are 50% off. Also Passport America can help you get up to 50% off at select private parks. Monthly rates at private parks are also typically cheaper and can save you some $$.

We have paid $0 to $125+ for an rv park site for one night. We tend to stay in one spot for a month or more, use no frills, non resort type rv parks, and use Passport America for one night stops enroute from long term spot to another. In the Midwest we typically average about $15 - $20 per night, a bit lower west of the Mississippi (not CA), and nearly double that on the east coast. If you are looking for short stays in high season in resort areas you will pay a lot more. Check the latest rates for Ft. Wilderness at Disney World to see expensive.
