Question Full Hook-up CG Rates Nationwide

I gotta newbie kinda question. I will be staying in a KOA campground in NM for an extended period of time. The monthly rate I got is $430 not including electric (electric is billed separately).

It is a very nice, spacious campground. Water, Wi-Fi, cable tv and sewer are included. Nice private shower/bath rooms. Very nice grounds. Small country store on-site. And the RV's are all upper-end.

Just wanted to get an overview feel for prices around the country for similar campgrounds.

Thanks

We've been finding that the daily rate for FHU's around the country is ~$30-35; the weekly rates are running $175-200 and the monthly's anywhere from $400-600. The monthly rates are usually, but not always, plus electricity. It sounds as if the rate you have been quoted is quite fair.

We pay monthly rates from $160 per month plus electricity at $0.20 per KwH in AZ to $540 per month with electricity included.
RV parks are usually cheaper in the west than back east, especially the east coast.

Our cost per night for the last several years has been less than $10 per night. That includes the cost of any electricity paid.

We never stay in KOAs because they cost too much and often are not as nice as cheaper RV parks.

I agree that most KOA's (in my limited experience) are not as nice. In fact, there is a lakeside state park campground that only charges $8 per day (FHU electricity included). Very scenic. But you can only stay there for 20 days then you gotta leave for 6 days before returning. I may do that part of the time I'm here. If the project continues to the end, I will be here another 6 months to a year.

Prices vary greatly by region and season. Off-season rates in winter destinations are often under $300/month, while winter-season rates may be $400-$500+. In-season rates here in Maine run around $600+/month including electric, but if you book a site for the entire summer season (5 months),it will likely average lower, perhaps $500/month.

The one we stay at in Valencia CA includes everything for $805 a month which we feel is a great deal with the AC running all the time.

Most of the places where I've paid monthly were in the 300-350 range.

I don't normally pay by the month though, I usually spend my 2 weeks in a membership place then move out for 1-2 weeks either going to another membership place or a 12/night park with partial hookups (50 amps, no sewer). .Depending on the time of year.

I think the place I stayed in Georga was 325 a night, just 3 miles from the Darian Outlet Mall (Cathead Creek Ranch RV park) A very fun place since there is a cowboy church on the property and the owner is the pastor.

Just looked at Ventura Beach RV Resort in Ventura, Ca.
It is not on a beach and it is not a resort by any means. The only thing that was resort about it was the price. $70 per night.
I got the feeling that the folks that liked this place did not travel very much.

They are high we looked at staying there too but were booked solid they told us, glad we came to Valencia Travel Village then. We thought they were on the beach and that was the main reason we were going to go there.

We can be a CG for a month to 3 months usually.
