Campground Laundry

Hi all,
Here's a weird question. When traveling for an extended period of time, what do most campground laundry rooms take for money, such as 2.00 for wash and 3.00 to dry, quarters or a mix of change, and what type of detergent, powder or liquid?

All the ones that we have used took quarters. If there isn't a change machine in the laundromat the office should have change. We use liquid as it is easier to carry to/from the laundromat but either would be OK.

Nothing weird about your question. Bring your quarters, laundry detergent and dryer sheets. Your good to go. Don't forget the dirty laundry

Most places we have used, we had to get quarters form the office. Reason is that too many idiots try to steal from the change machines.

Be on the look out for decent laundries in town. We've been to some CGs where the laundries are filthy.

Where we have been it takes Quarters and usually it is about 2.00 to wash and 2.00 to dry.About the only dirty laundry mat we have been in is the one in Raccoon River CG in Panama City Beach FL. Good Luck.

We've seen some that took credit cards, others you had to buy tokens.

My wife says about $1.50 to wash and $1.50 to dry.

Another good place to get quarters is the coin car wash.

Almost always quarters, and 1-2 dollars.

Park where I am is an exception.. You pay at the office, coins, paper or plastic.
Home is where I park it!

I've seen prices from$1.50-$2.50 to wash and same to dry. I've seen some really nice laundry rooms and some really bad. Quarters are the norm.

While quarters are the norm in the US, be prepared to find some Loonies ($1.00 coins) in Canada. While I haven't seem them in campgrounds, a number of commercial laundromats are using cards. You put $ on the card, and if you don't use it all, get it back when done.

I prefer commercial laundromats because they generally have larger washers & dryers and rarely require waiting for a turn, but the campground ones are often more convenient...

We I have a change bucket at home that I throw the change in in the evening before bed time. We save the quarters during non RVing times then sort them out when time to travel. Use a change machine for the rest then buy a couple rolls of quarters as xtra for the road. That way we have change MOST times when needed. We also use liquid for wash and softener. I use we as I'm most times the transfer guy Washer to dryer except when the wife pulls things early from the dryer for special care.
