The most was when we paid $104 for one night at Campland On The Bay in San Diego. It was pricey for what is essentially an asphalt parking lot with a table and hookups. Never again!

OMG *how* much is a campsite??

Naples Motorcoach Resort was around $150 a night starting in March 2016. Was around $100 previous to that. Don't know if it still is because we haven't gone back and probably won't again. Just too much even for the three weeks total you're only allowed each visit.
Hmmm, 21 x 150...yup, too much.

I have found camp site fees are generally controlled by location, location, location...
Location is it in my experience too. $100-125 per night has been the high in for us per night at places like Cedar Point, Fort Wilderness, Ocean Lakes (Myrtle Beach). All great places where you pay for convenience to be right next to the attractions.

Our fees only get high when we are on a Grand kid adventure. Next week its $80 at the KOA in Harpers Ferry, WV. But it for a rāfting trip with 2 of the teen girls. It is the only decent deal in town unless you want a trashy place in the same area. And its just at the entrance to the National Park

Paid $105 in Miab this past April. Needed big pull trough site to 2 nights. It hurt but sometimes the area and apeal drive the price up. Usually stay a month to get lower average daily cost. At least we all get to make that choice of what we can take.

Enjoy your travels and the memories you are making.

Actually I was wrong I think it was $89 per night. If you stay 4 nights the 4th night was free. That gets you to just about 67 dollars per night.

What's so special? It includes armbands to the pool, lake obstacle course, 20 foot slide, etc.

Without considering State Parks.....one is Lucky to find decent sites for less than $60/night out the door these days. Of course, there are plenty of "discount" programs that can be utilized is one feels like waggling through the "this-night-if the-next-night- is-a-full-moon" sort of thing...... {wink}

On a road trip to Nashville after visiting family in the Idaho panhandle. Spent a night in Butte, MT, Buffalo, WY, and am in Cheyenne, WY at the moment. Nothing under $45/night.

Yep been there, I just pull over and park anyplace I can.. Never been bothered ever, church parking lots, county garages, truck stops, county fair grounds, never stayed at a Walmart yet. Haha lol. Small town city parks, even parked in front of a bar right on main street in a small southern Nebraska town. No one cares. Haha

I encountered one of thoese today. Little CG just south of Marianna, Florida; just a few lanes of dirt with dirt sites, a combination CG and MHP.

"$45."

"Pardon me?"

"$45."

"Do you do Passport America or Good Sam discounts."

"Those were the discount prices I gave you."

"Well, thanks."

Are these people insane?

So I reserved a site at Florida Caverns SP just on the north side of Marianna for the princely sum of $20 plus a $6.70 transaction fee. Further nights would have been $20 each.

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.
Also did the "on the Beach" at Camp Gulf for 4 days in February for a total of $859.82 Checked that off the list and wont have to do it again.
