We have found you get what you pay for. We have stayed at Blue Water key, Wilderness Park at Disney and got value for what we paid. That being said as senior citizen it is pretty cheap to stay in COE parks. They are our favorites, we found except for a few parks prices are pretty representative of what the park is.

I would love to pay less, but if I don't pay I can't stay and it's cold in Mass during the winter.

Fort Wilderness is $169.88 including tax per night for Christmas season this year.
Bluewater Key is $195.00 plus tax per night this winter.

Obviously other people are paying it. Supply and demand....

The thing is....you have options. You don't have to stay at those places.

Exactly !!

Not every one wants to pay to walk out and catch a boat to the Magic Kingdom, or look out the front windshield at the blue waters of the Florida Keys

I do, so I do

I can remember when fees were much less than they are. But it not common IMHO to pay $60 for a "resort" rv type stay. While a camp ground
with no high attractions or city access I normally pay at the $40.00 or less
range.

I agree $100+ is out of control, but so have hotels in the same area often at
the $300 range.

Unfortunately they are not so much " out of control " as they are " out of reach " for some of us. They are just priced where the owners think they need them to be to make the most profit. That is what they are trying to do after all.
We stayed at a city run park this past week near home for only $85. (Half off with the golden access pass) We have never had a problem but we got to witness a verbal domestic dispute Monday morning. Let's just say, those kids didn't win the parent lottery. I bet those folks have never paid 50bucks a night to "camp".

Sad, but remember-- half the world lives on the left side of the curve.

OMG

Camp land in San Diego has a premium site that is $350 per night. Not sure why anyone would rent it?

I will never fault a campground for having a sound business model that works! The old Supply/Demand thing is a grand win for places in the right places.
But you won't find me there (unless it's a Dead concert).

Have you seen the site? It is a huge, private, site right on the bay with a private hottub and patio at the waters edge.

$350/night for this? Never. Wouldn't even pay $20.

^ Interesting video.

Notice how everyone is packed in like sardines in a parking lot? We stayed there one night and it was over $100.

Never again!

Nothing more than a parking lot.

Nothing worse than sitting in your favorite chair on asphalt on a 90 degree day. Neighbors so close you could hear them snore.

Anywhere else it would be a $40.00 a night CG. Granted its on the water, but still just a parking lot, maybe worth $60.00 tops.

For that kind of money I expect wide sites, grass, etc...

PT Barnum got it right.
