Camping Discount Memberships

We are new to RVing but tips are coming our way on camping discount memberships. Interested in knowing which ones are worthwhile considering. Some suggested to us are : Coast-to-Coast, Passport America, Good Sam Club. I've heard of Escapees RV Club and Camps Club mentioned. Any advice is greatly welcomed.

Google these and you will learn lots! Camp Club is out of business. Passport America is the real deal if you travel a lot and lets you stay most places for half price. Good Sam has many benefits but only if you need them. Most parks give you 10% off with GS. They are connected to Camping World. They have towing insurance, things like that.
FMCA is another good RV member club. They have a good assortment of benefits.

Welcome to the forum.

It really depends on how and how much you plan to travel. If you'll be doing much moving around at all, IMHO, Good Sam and Passport America are no brainers and should pay for themselves easily.

Escapees is great (I'm a member) but better for full timers than the vacationer.

Clubs like C to C are more expensive and I don't have first hand experience with them but you can use our search feature and find lots of opinions. Many love it... others, not so much.

We bought Passport America will in Florida and more than saved the cost in just our trip back home to Iowa.

We had Passport America for quite a few years, and enjoyed it. There are some REALLY nice parks, and some I wished we had seen before making a reservation, as we would never go back to the dumps.

Passport America is a pretty cheap way to get your " feet wet" while learning about all the others. Just have to plan ahead and work around the restrictions but you can easily get you money's worth .

Have and use Passport America. It does pay for itself with the caveat that some places are not so nice.

We were just pitched for a membership at East Coast Resorts part of Coast to Coast system. We are recently retired so probably will be on the road enough to make it look attractive. I'm looking for comments from anyone who has used membership camping - likes, dislikes or any other useful comments.

We only have Passport and use it mainly while traveling from one place to the next. It pays for itself quickly. We've stayed at a few not so nice places, but it's just an overnight so it's no big deal. A lot of times all I hook up is the electric. We've been fulltiming for almost 5yrs. now, so most of our stays are in the one month range once we reach our destination area.
