We sprung for one of the $100+ per night "on the beach" spots at Camp Gulf (Destin, FL) for our last 4 nights of our Florida trip this winter before heading back north. I won't lie ... paying that sort of money for a nice parking space was downright painful. BUT, my DW just loves the beach - so it made for a fitting end to our first extended winter trip. Aside from our Florida trip (where $60...ish) per night rates seem to pretty much be the norm (with lots of more expensive spots available!) - the rest of the year, we're firming in the $25-$35 per night range. We're lucky in that we probably spend a cumulative 4-6 weeks each year "moochdocking" with friends - which helps bring the annual average down a bit as well.

I got stung $300 at Newport in CA once, and thought she meant $300 for the stay. I see now they have tamed down a bit and are $180 a night.

If you think those prices are high,you better not go to
the Fl. Keys.As more camp grounds are being replaced
by hotels,the prices will keep rising.

The most we pay is about $ 40.00 a night, $ 30.00 being more the average.

The exception is Fort Wilderness, which is a destination in itself. We got a great deal through AAA, it came out to about $ 85.00 a night, with an extra night thrown in for free, and free Park Hopper passes.

They could actually use a few more hotels there. Slim pickens.

Our highest in 16 years of full-timing was probably in the $20's and that hurt.

We usually did public parks where we could use our Senior Pass for 1/2 off so we've stayed in awesome places for $6-$10!

I just went online to check on Newport Dunes RV and Marina which is located in the Back Bay area of Newport Beach, CA.

They had sites that were not water front but the 2nd row in, for $1750 for 7 nights ($250 per night). It stated that for an additional fee you could get beach front ! What a deal !!

We actually stayed at that park for 11 weeks in 2000 but somehow I don't remember paying a high per week rate then -- I guess there's the inflation factor ???

Yeah, wow, so there is another one! Probably more, and we just haven't heard about them.

Cray-cray :-)

Newport Dunes is the one I stayed at in 2004 ($300/night) for second row and our 5th was too long to fit, had to put it in sideways.

I misunderstood, thought they meant $300 for the stay.

Yeah, and right across the road is beach camping for $15 a night at a city cite. Dry camping but dump and water are available just off the beach in town. Exactly the same views and ambiance. We pulled in and pulled out of Heritage and went across the street.

We also stayed at the city park in Homer, Alaska for $15 which is literally right next door to the $75 one and sharing the same gravel! Awesome views. We spent a week there.

How is it one careless match can start a forest fire but it takes a whole box to start a campfire?

The KOA closest to us wants $85/night/wknd for their deluxe pull-thru. Rather high for the middle of OH w/no scenery. It's not even in a resort area although a lake is close by.
