I have generally gotten my yearly fee back in one -two visits at member CG 's. There are restrictions but workable IMO.

No brainer for us. We've made our money back several times over.

Yep, we easily get our money back with just a couple of stays a year, normally in transit between destinations. We have found a few that would do the PP discount for a week ... slightly cheaper than the normal weekly rate, but still a deal.

Have had it for several years. Pretty much a no brainer. Use it a couple times and its paid for itself, so the break even point is easy to reach. Web site shows participating campgrounds. As for the restrictions on days and such, they vary by campground. I have found often if asked a campground will waive the restriction. They would rather have half your money than none.

We bought it for our 10 week vacation to Alaska from So Cal and we used it 5 times. I plan on buying another when we leave in August for 3 month trip down the East Coast.

We have had it for 3 years. We use it enough to cover the cost. Many of the campgrounds are really grungy, but there are also some pretty good ones. Many of the PA campgrounds in good vacation areas like the Southwest or the Oregon coast have seasonal limitations that make the PA discount unavailable.

We have PA. I check out the website or the app on my phone for what campgrounds are PA for the route we'll be on. Then it's on to the homework. Look at the campground's website, google earth to see the layout, & of course RV Park Reviews. Typically, we're only there for one night so we aren't looking for a lot of amenities. Level site, clean & safe is most important for that. Close to the road we're traveling then fuel & maybe a restaurant.
Double check the park's restrictions. Some are only Sunday-Thursday. We've laid out an upcoming trip with several PA parks that are near either relatives or places we want to see. One example is Mammoth Cave. There are 2 PA parks nearby. One is only Sun-Thurs, the other will accept PA any day. We will be at Singing Hills in Cave City on a weekend this coming summer.
It's workable. Might take a bit of homework but it's doable.
Safe travels!

PA campgrounds are my first choice. Yes some have tight restrictions but many are very liberal. Some offer not much more than a place to park and FHU, while others are top of the line campgrounds. I've stayed in some of the very cheap $10 night and enjoyed them for the small size and no pool with very friendly owners. Never found any of the parks unsuitable to stay. Like any program I'm sure there are some parks that I may not stay at, but have not yet found one in the PA system. Saved several years of membership with one 11 day stay at Stagecoach park in Branson.

We are PPA lifetime members and we have already recouped out costs. I think some Thousand Trails campgrounds also accept PPA although we have never tried it there.
