Camp Club/Passport America

i just received an email that Camp Club is merging with PA. here is the main paragraph:

We have negotiated a deal to team with Passport America, whereby you, as a member of Camp Club USA, will have the ability to enjoy the approximately 1,800 campgrounds in the Passport America network where you can save 50% off nightly camping. This combination will provide you with approximately 600 additional campgrounds where you can enjoy discounted camping. As part of this combination, your Camp Club USA membership will be converted to a Passport America membership. We will be working closely with Passport America to insure this transition is a smooth one for you, and going forward we will be offering the Passport America membership to all of our loyal customers and members through our Camping World retail stores and catalogs as well as online.

We just received our converted CC card to PA. I think I'll call to see if the 5 extra months can be added to our PA account. At any rate, even with the availability game, it's still a good deal. Bob

Edit: Just read the other CC/PA thread...it does extend your current PA membership plus 1 month, no need for the call.

When I have looked into these I have found most campgrounds to be pretty restrictive on lenght of stay and blackout dates and such. Have you guys that have used this find it to be worth it?

Keep an eye for the campground. It can be a very valuable membership.

Case by case basis, yes, some have restrictions while others are no restrictions. I use the Passport America web site to see what the restrictions are and make my plans accordingly. In most instances we use them for overnight, or 2 or 3 days and move on. On the restricted ones, most state that it can be used but excludes Friday and Saturday, and Holidays.

I'm happy to see the merger.

When I asked an owner of a CG "how does it work for you." They replied that they have to allocate a percentage of their CG for PA Discount. Once that percentage is full they do not have to honor the PA rates. That is why many state that you have to call and indicate you are PA. So if you are ever refused a site because "We're Full," ask if they have any non-PA sites, if you really need to stop in that area.

If anyone knows "Exactly" how the system works I'd like to hear.

It is what it is, and then it is what you make of it.

"How it works" is pretty much up to the campground owner. They have to honor the discount for at least some minimum percentage of their sites, but many do it for all sites. The campground decides if there will be any restrictions, and they can vary by season, day of week, etc.

We've been quite happy with PA and seldom run into any significant restrictions. Of course you won't get the discount at a popular campground on a mid-summer weekend when the campground is going to sell out anyway at full price. The reason a campground joins PA is that they want to fill sites at off-peak times.
