Coast to Coast membership question

We have the option to take over our parents Coast to Coast Resort booking membership. Are any forum members able to give information on their experiences with this program, including possible hidden charges and ease of booking resorts. The expensive part of the program, being the purchase of the home campground membership has already been paid, so we will be taking over the yearly resort fee of approx $150 and Coast to Coast membership of $100 per year. Thanks for any info or opinions.

We FT so our experience may be significantly different than someone who doesn't.

But we definitely feel our C2C membership pays for itself, and use it when there is a park in the areas we are traveling or visiting. Our home park yearly dues are a little lower than yours, as we are at $39 yearly, guaranteed in the contract to never go up. We have had it now nearly 7 years, and stayed in C2C affiliated parks in all parts of the country. We have also stayed in C2C parks in Canada.

We have been pleasantly surprised to find locations in some of the more heavily visited areas, and it was nice to take advantage of them. The Niagra Falls area and next to the Gettysburg battlefield are just a couple that come immediately to mind.

As you probably know, the parks are not owned by C2C, but rather just privately owned parks that affiliate. Thus some are spectacular, some are rather "tired". Most of the Thousand Trails parks have now affiliated with C2C, and many of these fall into the "tired" category", as it appears Thousand Trails did not put much into their parks for quite a few years.

From our perspective, as FTers, I tell people when asked, if we could only have one campground membership, it would be Passport America based on the value for the money and what we can save when traveling. If down to two, C2C would be our second choice. We have kept our RPI affiliation for all these years also, but are seriously considering letting this one go next renewal. They have a lot less affiliated parks than C2C, and it seems a majority of them are available thru C2C anyway.

If you do not plan on using C2C in the near future, you can request to have your C2C membership suspended (no fees) for up to 3 years. I did that when I acquired my membership from my parents.

We have found C-2-c useful. Think the point system is kind of a pain in the backside but it works for us. don't be afraid to call a camp ground direct while traveling and book directly. we've never been turned down doing that. Safe Travels... ed

Read the fine print on the agreement. There is no such thing as a standard agreement/contract with these things and it can depend on how well the original purchase was negotiated. Sometimes you can upgrade for a fee (which you should negotiate). I'd also look at other cg orgs. to see how features, options and benefits compare. We have access to C2C through the cg org. we belong to and have found it good. Depending on where you want to camp, you may find in some areas or on some routes, there are few cgs available while another organization/network may have more. Definitely worthwhile if you plan to camp a lot.

We love our C2C membership. No hidden fees. Once you get used to the points system, it's no big deal. Several of our local C2C affiliate parks even allow you to pay them directly in cash, equivalent to the cost of purchasing points.

We just joined C2C and are finding things are NOT what were
presented. We have a Premiere membership and were given
a list of parks where we could stay free and ones that we will
pay $15/night. The first time we tried to book a $15 park we
were told we needed over 10K points. We called the CG and were
told we would have to pay regular rate.
We called C2C and they said that the CGs decided to charge
"special rates" which could be anywhere from $15 to $90/night.
So much for the 15/night.
We then tried again to book into a "FREE" park. We were told that
the MH had to be less than 35 feet or we would pay the regular rate.

Not sure where this is heading?????????????????

We have been using C2C for almost 15 years. One time we ran into a problem during a holiday weekend when we wanted to stay in a park that wasn't our home park. It was blocked off just for owners of that park which I understand, no problem. Good system when you use it correctly
